MasterCard
and Stefani joined forces
in December 2014 and have been surprising
cardholders across the U.S. with everything from show tickets to the
opportunity to spend the day with Gwen herself. The payment technology
company debuted
an ad
with the singer featuring her song, Spark The Fire. The spot
exemplifies what the MasterCard platform is about: surprising
cardholders with unbelievable experiences while also inspiring them to
give and share their own Priceless
Surprises
 whether they’re paying with traditional credit, debit or
prepaid cards or using innovative mobile payment options.

“Working with MasterCard to surprise my fans and deliver something truly
unique and unpredictable has been a really special part of this year,”
said Stefani. “I look forward to another amazing experience on stage in
New York.”

“The Priceless campaign has evolved over time—from celebrating priceless
moments and enabling priceless experiences, to providing Priceless
Surprises across our cardholders’ passions, whether that be travel,
sports, arts or culinary,” said Raja Rajamannar, chief marketing
officer, MasterCard. “Working with premiere artists like Gwen Stefani
helps us deliver the unexpected for those who are passionate about
music.”
