NORWALK, Conn., Nov. 23, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- At Priceline, Black Friday starts today with the introduction of an innovative new loyalty program, Priceline VIP, and a supersized week of savings. The company's biggest Black Friday sale to-date will feature more than 50 custom deals and over $5 million in savings on upcoming travel, so you can save now and travel later. The week-long savings event culminates on Giving Tuesday, when 1% of all eligible bookings made on Priceline Gives will be donated to a charity of the customer's choice.
"After missing so many of life's important moments this year, we want to make it even easier for our travelers to maximize savings and rewards whenever they're ready to travel," said Brett Keller, CEO of Priceline.
To help its millions of loyal travelers save even more this holiday season—and beyond—the company is officially launching Priceline VIP as part of the Black Friday event. The multi-tiered rewards program is free to join and allows members to begin saving as soon as they enroll.
Priceline VIPs will save up to 50% on over 45,000 name brand hotels and up to 20% on rental cars. Other VIP perks include early access to future sales, exclusive coupons, and even deeper discounts as status levels increase.
