Atlantis' Marina Village Offers Up MasterCard Winner
A tiny shop packed floor to ceiling with accessories, swim and resort wear walked away with top honours and a cheque for $1,000 in an ongoing monthly contest to identify winning merchants, restaurants, attractions and experiences in the Bahamas Priceless program, co-sponsored by the Ministry of Tourism and MasterCard.

Now in its fourth year, the joint initiative between Tourism and MasterCard has been voted a genuine people-pleaser, providing benefits for existing card holders when they arrive in Nassau and offering everyone -- visiting and local -- using the card the opportunity to add value to experiences. Some 53 businesses are participating in the program this year, the largest number ever.
