MasterCard Invites Consumers on a Priceless Escape to ‘Break in a Pair of Jeans’ This Summer


National Campaign Rewards Cardholders with Priceless Escapes and a Pair of Jeans to Break in Along the Way.

Purchase, NY.- Every pair of jeans tells a story. Whether flare, boot cut, skinny or stonewashed. No matter what type of jeans people wear, everyone has a favorite pair that reflects who they are, expresses personal style and helps them enjoy time making memories with family and friends. And since people are not traveling as often these days, but still desire to, the “MasterCard 2009 Break in Your Jeans” campaign is rewarding cardholders with an opportunity to win a personally designed travel experience with those they cherish most, and a pair of jeans to break in along the way.
By using their MasterCard cards for everyday purchases between July 1, 2009 and August 31, 2009, cardholders are automatically entered for a chance to win a “priceless” escape and a pair of jeans to break in during their trip. Nine Grand Prize winners -- one per week throughout the promotion -- will receive a pair of jeans and a five-day/four-night trip for the winner and three guests to a destination of the winner’s choice. In addition, 62 First Prize winners will each receive a new pair of jeans and a weekend escape for two courtesy of MasterCard, American Airlines and Hyatt Hotels and Resorts. Consumers can also enter once a day for a chance to win by visiting or by texting keyword “WIN” to “77257.” Each MasterCard® PayPass™ tap purchase garners cardholders an additional entry.*
“The ‘Break in Your Jeans’ campaign reflects the ongoing MasterCard commitment to reward cardholders with the things that matter most to them in their daily lives,” said Chris Jogis, senior vice president of Consumer Marketing for MasterCard Worldwide. “That’s why we’re combining the comfort and personal style a pair of jeans represents, with an adventure to break them in – a chance for cardholders to enjoy just being themselves, spending time with people they care about and creating fun memories that will last a lifetime.”

“MasterCard 2009 Break in Your Jeans” is a multi-tiered integrated marketing campaign that includes a new :30 Priceless® television spot breaking July 1, 2009 produced by McCann Erickson NY that features classic scenes of pop culture icons in jeans -- from Marilyn Monroe and Marlon Brando to The Ramones and Carlos Santana. The voiceover questions whether they might look better in different styles, such as pleated slacks, Capri pants or khaki shorts and ends with “The perfect pair of jeans: Priceless.” In addition, the program includes print, radio, online and out-of home advertising, as well as a mobile texting component. The web portal, developed by MRM Worldwide, where consumers can learn more about the campaign and can register online for a chance to win is located at
