Creative Execution

Chase Sapphire and the Travel Channel joined forces for a full year-long, multifaceted partnership: Began by weaving the iconic Chase octagon within Travel Channel’s new branding campaign, 'Catch It'. Travel Channel created a custom version of their new branding spot that incorporates Chase Sapphire 'graphic treatment' throughout the spot (which mirrors the new TV campaign and the unique card art) and ends with a Sapphire-centric closing. Integrated with key talent: Andrew Zimmern’s Bizarre World, Anthony Bourdain, Samantha Brown, Dhani Jones. Chase Sapphire has strong visibility throughout the Travel Channel website/VOD platforms. Launch party at the 'Top of the Rock' where select Cardmembers were invited to join the celebration and mix and mingle with the network’s biggest personalities. Travel Channel was able to offer up their assets to help bring Chase Sapphire rewards to life, in the area of the Travel Channel Academy. Exclusive sponsor of the Samantha Brown Sweepstakes.

Insights, Strategy & the Idea
In 2009 Chase Credit Cards launched Chase Sapphire, a premium credit card focused on the Affluent segment seeking to maximise their travel and entertainment experiences. With the economy in a recession, it was extremely important to illustrate that this premium card provides quality, value and 'best in class service' while recognising that the consumer is not about materialism or conspicuous consumption. The ROI objectives of this campaign were: • Build awareness for the new Chase Affluent Card – Chase Sapphire • Create an association between premium travel benefits and Chase Sapphire • Drive consideration and compel prospects to acquire the card • Increase share versus competing T&E cards in the marketplace Strategy: Develop an integrated partnership with the Travel Channel to drive brand awareness, create an association between Chase Sapphire and travel, and increase relevancy by tapping into key personalities and compelling content.
