Mastercard ID Theft Protection™ in order to give every customer the peace of mind that they deserve when making their payments. Safety is always a top priority to Mastercard when it comes to their customers and their payments.
Fuel Rewards Network™
Now with the Mastercard Fuel Rewards Network, customers can save even more money on their purchases of gas and fuel at Shell. Everyone loves to save money, especially at the pump.
Mastercard wants to be sure that all of their customers are always getting the best deals that they can with all of their purchases. Therefore, they rolled out their price protection program which enables customers to be reimbursed for the difference between the purchase price of an item and the lower price found elsewhere by the customer if identified within 60 days of that purchase. All customers have to do is find the lower price of the item and submit a claim with Mastercard on their website.
Everyone loves to have the peace of mind that comes with a warranty. With Mastercard, customers recieve the benefit of their Extended Warranty Program which doubles the original manufacturer’s (or U.S. store brand) warranty and or their service contract/optional extended warranty, where each is 12 months or less.

Mastercard clients never have to worry about any unauthorized purchases made with their Mastercard.
Mastercard Global Service™
Imagine having the comfort and convenience of being able to have emergency assistance virtually anywhere, at any time, and in any language. Well, with Mastercard, that is exactly what you will get. Through the Mastercard Global Service Program, if you lose your card or have it stolen, obtaining an emergency replacement card is made easy and hassle-free.
Mastercard ID Theft Protection™
One fantastic benefit that is offered by Mastercard exclusively is their well-respected Mastercard ID Theft Protection program. These days criminals aren’t simply after our wallets anymore. They are after your identity so that they can steal in much larger sums by taking out lines of credit, loans, mortgages, and more all in your name so that you get left with the bill. Even worse than that is that a person’s credit can be severely damaged preventing them from being able to get a loan, or line of credit themselves or cost them steep interest payments if they are able to obtain one. Through Mastercard’s Identity Theft protection consumers can rest assured that the company will always help the to identify and resolve any identity theft issues associated with their card for no additional cost. It is hard to put a price on that level of safety or peace of mind.
Mastercard uses Expert Resolution Services. They offer their Expert assistance 24/7 in the case that you think your identity has been stolen. If you do believe that there is a possibility that your identity has been stolen, you should call 1-800-Mastercard and you will be assigned a personal certified specialist that will help you through the process each and every step of the way.
But you do not have to constantly stay on top of your Mastercard in order to monitor it for a possible case of stolen identity (although it is recommended that you monitor it regularly) because Mastercard will do that for you. With their ID Theft Alerts™, Mastercard will automatically track thousands of websites for you in order to identify if any of your personal information is being purchased or sold online. All you have to do is register for the program online or over the phone.
Furthermore, Mastercard offers to all of its customers their Emergency Wallet Replacement. With their Emergency Wallet Replacement Program, the experst at Mastercard will help you in promptly canceling and then re-ordering the contents of your physical wallet like your driver’s license, and your other credit or banking debit cards among other items. If your physical wallet or purse is stolen or lost at any time you can receive free and prompt assistance with this service simply by calling. 1-800-Mastercard
In addition to all of these services that are offerrred by Mastercard, there are a great number of options in the style of cards available to consumers. It is a good idea to review each of them for their benefits and costs before applying for the one that is right for you and your specific needs. Be sure to pay attention to all of the fees and policies that are associated with each card to be sure that it is really the right card for you and your needs prior to applying because each time you apply there will be an inquiry against your credit score which could result in the lowering of your credit score.
