30 Jul Ascenda powers points transfers from Brex corporate cards to leading global rewards programs
Singapore, 30 July 2019 – Ascenda, a global end-to-end loyalty solutions provider, has partnered with Brex, the corporate credit card that accelerates entrepreneurs and scales businesses, to connect their loyalty program with major frequent traveler programs worldwide.
Starting today, Ascenda’s global loyalty currency network, TransferConnect, will enable Brex cardholders to transfer their Brex rewards points to six frequent traveler programs. Conveniently available within the Brex dashboard, the new points transfer option offers instant fulfilment, real-time status updates and a rich points transfer value.
The partnership with Ascenda is Brex’s latest initiative to further enhance its rewards program, Brex Rewards, which offers customers unparalleled benefits for their businesses. “The ability to redeem Brex rewards points for airline miles was the most-requested enhancement to Brex rewards by our existing customers,” said Henrique Dubugras, co-founder and co-CEO of Brex. “We are thrilled to offer our customers more high-value travel opportunities. The launch of the points transfer capability is a testament to Brex’s ongoing commitment to make its rewards offering the most valuable in the corporate credit card industry.”
“We are delighted to enable Brex customers to unlock extraordinary travel moments with their corporate card,” said Kyle Armstrong, CEO of Ascenda. “For customers who travel globally, the value of being able to exchange Brex rewards points into airline miles is unmatched. We are proud to partner with Brex’s unique rewards program to design and launch benefits that offer outsized, differentiated impact to its business customers.”
