There might be something hiding in your wallet. In plain sight, right in front of your nose, sits a personal assistant and travel planner capable of saving you thousands of dollars in travel, dining, special events, sports, shopping, and entertainment. And chances are that you may use it every single day.
What is the magical genie that lies inconspicuously in your purse or back pocket? It could be your Visa card if it is accompanied by the word “Signature”. If your card does indeed possess those 9 letters you are eligible for a reward program that has a ton of perks including offers from Hilton hotels, Avis car rental, Royal Caribbean Cruises, Tommy Hilfiger, and plenty others. Plus, the program allows members free access to a 24/7 concierge which can help with restaurant reservations, travel arrangements, entertainment planning, conference and hospitality service, and maybe even a good chat.
Another area in which the reward program seems to be focusing is on wine, especially in Sonoma County. As one of the preeminent wine regions in the country, as well as one of the most beautiful, Sonoma is a popular travel destination with millions of travelers strolling through vineyards and swirling Sonoma’s finest each year. Visa Signature is helping those throngs by teaming up with more than 60 wineries to offer complimentary tastings and other exclusive offers. Members can enjoy benefits at popular wineries such as Simi, Francis Ford Coppola, Chateau St. Jean, Clos du Bois, and Gloria Ferrer while also discovering other premium winemakers along the way. In addition, Visa Signature members will receive special promotions and discounts during the “Sonoma Wine Country Weekend” which takes place from August 31 - September 2, 2012. The 3-day event features the area’s best food, wine, and gourmet experiences with proceeds being donated to local charities. So check your wallet; it may be hiding some very lucrative deals.
