Doha Bank has celebrated a milestone with the launch of a new premium co-branded credit card – the LuLu Platinum Mastercard Credit Card. The new credit card, which offers a fully-loaded platinum experience with a host of exclusive rewards and special benefits, was unveiled during a launch at LuLu’s regional office.
Doha Bank Group CEO Dr R Seetharaman said, “True to the bank’s reputation of offering fresh, innovative, and customer-oriented products, the new LuLu Platinum Mastercard credit card will extend a never-before experience with premium rewards and exceptional benefits to a wider income group. We are extremely proud of this innovative new product and believe that it will change the very concept of a credit card.”
The new LuLu Platinum Mastercard credit card is a distinct and exclusive contactless card with a wide range of benefits that include 5% savings across the board at all LuLu stores in Qatar, complimentary unlimited airport lounge access at 25 airports, access to Doha Bank’s ‘Buy 1-Get 1’ Entertainer App and exclusive global lifestyle and travel benefits.
Cardholders will also receive lifestyle benefits with popular retailers, including a 10% discount with the luxury brand Farfetch and up to 15% with the premier boutique, The Bicester Village Shopping Collection.
For holiday goers, the card will offer up to 30% discount on Cleartrip for hotel and travel bookings, and up to 10% cashback with Booking.com. The card is free for the first year of issuance and cardholders also receive two free-for-life supplementary cards.
