Finally, for discerning clients who demand flexibility and the ability to bank on their own terms, AUB (Asia United Bank) Platinum and Gold MasterCard are here and specifically designed so clients can customize their payment options.
With the AUB premium MasterCard credit cards, VIP clients can choose when and how much to pay every month. According to Mags Surtida, head of AUB Credit Cards Business: “We at AUB are excited to launch the new MasterCard credit cards, the first of its kind in the Philippines. Not only do these products provide our loyal and premium clients with relevant financial tools that address their needs, it also has features that speak of their lifestyle”
AUB also offers the lowest interest rate in the market at 1.6% per month with no annual fees for both principal and supplementary cardholders for life. While majority of the premium cardholders segment pays in full, a small segment would rather revolve their balance even if they can afford to pay in full anytime.
“The psychology behind this ‘revolved’ behavior is clear,” AUB president Abraham Co explained. “Paying 1.60% interest per month for one’s balance is not a shabby deal, especially for high-value or luxury goods that are probably bought in a heartbeat.”
One of the exciting perks to be enjoyed exclusive to all AUB cardholders for the coming months is the chance to see the gorgeous sceneries and taste the best wines that one of the world’s greatest viticulture regions has to offer with the Napa Valley Vineyard Priceless Experience raffle promo.
MasterCard Philippines Vice President Ailea Zialcita points out that these tailored experiences further enhance how cardholders enjoy and maximize the use of their AUB MasterCard. “We wanted to provide a customized priceless experience package that rewards our cardholders’ patronage and preference for using their AUB MasterCard for their various purchasing needs” she said.
From May 16 to July 30, 2016, every P5,000 single-receipt purchase using the AUB MasterCard entitles cardholders to one e-raffle entry for a chance to win a Napa Valley vineyard trip for two. Hosted by a world-class winemaker, the trip enables the winning cardholder to experience an exclusive reception and tour of premium winery, enjoy wine tasting, blending and pairing, and dining in a Michelin star restaurant overlooking the Napa Valley vineyard.
The AUB MasterCard credit cards offer premium cardholders a full range of exciting perks and privileges, including complimentary airport lounge access, doubled or quadrupled Rewards points for credit card transactions outside the Philippines, and the ability to transfer rewards Points to the Mabuhay Miles Frequent Flyer Program and Cebu Pacific’s GetGo Program and redemption to other travel rewards and electronic gift cards.
The AUB Platinum and Gold MasterCard credit cards carry an EMV chip for better authentication. The chip stores unique data from every purchase made with the card, thus making it harder to counterfeit and is safer to use when shopping anywhere in the world. The cards also have the Mastercard Secure Code that provides enhanced security for online shopping. For added security, every transaction made worth Php500 and above will prompt an SMS notification to the cardholder.
The AUB Platinum and Gold cards also leverage on AUB’s core strength as a “techie” bank by way of providing eStatements via SMS, email and Credit Cards Online Banking site. With these e-statement channels, AUB is the first credit card issuer in the country that does not send any printed statement of account. In addition, a great value-added All-Ur-Bills feature allows cardholders to charge utility bills to their credit cards.
