World Mastercard is the middle tier for Mastercard network benefits. Its benefits are better than those that come with Standard Mastercard, but not quite as extensive as those granted by World Elite Mastercard. So if you have a World Mastercard credit card, you get all of the perks afforded to people with Standard Mastercard, plus several extra benefits.
Here are some of the best World Mastercard benefits:
Price Protection: If the price of an item goes down within 120 days of purchase, the difference in price may be reimbursed. For more information, check out WalletHub’s latest Credit Card Price Protection Report.
Purchase Assurance/Purchase Protection: If an eligible item you buy with your eligible card is broken, lot or stolen within 90 days of purchase, you can get reimbursed up to a set amount per claim and year. You can check out WalletHub’s purchase protection report for more information.
