Last month, Mastercard launched its "Priceless New York" program—a pretty cool concept that gives Mastercard users to a slew of exclusive experiences. What do we mean by that? Well, how about a few weeks back when Mastercard sent us out to Yankee Stadium with seats in the brand new "Batter's Eye" section for a perfect view of the game and the chance to chat with pitcher Joba Chamberlain all while scarfing some awesome appetizers from Aarón Sanchez (yep, Aarón himself was there searing scallops and serving ceviche). It was pretty awesome. Anybody with a Mastercard has the opportunity to attend these events.

Tervis is known for their durable tumblers, mugs, and other cups. So durable in fact, the company says they're virtually indestructible. They won't crack, melt, shatter, or chip, and if they do somehow, they'll replace them. How are they built so tough? The double-walled insulation reduces condensation, essentially eliminating the need for coasters. It also ensures that cold drinks stay chilled and the steamers (even soup!) stay hot. One lucky winner here will get a $500 American Express gift card and an assortment of Tervis products (a $99 value).
If you're a serious foodie, travel has everything to do with experiencing new cultures via their unique cuisines. You literally get a "taste" of the places you visit, but so often, once you're back home, you can't recall the name of that great wine you drank, or you just can't adequately describe the amazing dessert you enjoyed at a village café. Visa's free Memory Mapper Facebook application can help you chronicle the special meals you got to enjoy, and maybe even help jog your memory if you want to try to recreate a recipe!
