Verizon's (NYSE:VZ) small and midsize business customers participating in the Business Link Rewards program can now select from a menu of once-in-a-lifetime experiences when they redeem their bonus points. Powered by gifting company Excitations, the new option includes such experiences as racing a stock car, learning to play polo and going on a private culinary walking tour.

"Businesses of all sizes are finding that experiences deliver a heightened level of excitement and buzz. Over 90 percent of our corporate clients focus their programs on our Circle Choice packages, because it's a reward that lets recipients choose their own unique experience," Nancy Lamberton, a founding partner at Excitations, said in a statement.

Business Link Rewards members will have the choice of six unique Excitations Circle Choice packages, valued from $75 to $500. Other rewards available to members include fine dining certificates, sporting event tickets, and merchandise from leading national companies like Lenovo, L.L. Bean and Staples. Program members can also use their bonus credits to donate to charity or to purchase Verizon products and services.
