Emirates NBD Group, Expo 2020 Dubai and Mastercard launch new card programmes

The limited-edition cards are designed to enhance the Expo 2020 Dubai experience for both residents and visitors

UAE’s Emirates NBD Group has partnered with Mastercard, the official payment technology partner of Expo 2020 Dubai, to create two exclusive new card programmes: Emirates NBD Expo Mastercard prepaid card and the Emirates Islamic Expo Mastercard credit card.

The limited-edition cards are designed to enhance the Expo 2020 Dubai experience for both residents and visitors, as well as elevate their time spent in the UAE.

Both cards are underpinned by Mastercard’s secure technology and will be equipped with contactless capabilities, a statement said.

Emirates NBD Expo Mastercard prepaid card
The Emirates NBD Expo Mastercard Prepaid Card is a digital-first offering, issued via a dedicated mobile app, Joyn from Emirates NBD.

The product is available to both UAE residents and international visitors for use while in the UAE. The benefits will merge a selection of offers from Emirates NBD’s Bon Appétit, LiveWell and Good Times programmes, as well as offers from Mastercard’s Priceless Platform.

The card will provide access to privileges, deals and discounts of up to 50 per cent at more than 2,000 shopping, dining, wellness, and entertainment touchpoints, as well as access to exclusive Expo-related offers. Cardholders will be able to use the cards to make online purchases as well as contactless in-store payments by adding their card to their preferred digital wallet. Customers will also have the option to receive a linked physical card if needed.

Suvo Sarkar, senior executive vice president and head of retail banking and wealth management, Emirates NBD, said: “As a Premier Partner and the Official Banking Partner of Expo 2020 Dubai, Emirates NBD is delighted to partner with Mastercard to amplify the Expo experience for millions of visitors. In addition to delivering a fast, intuitive, reliable and seamless payment process, the Emirates NBD Expo Mastercard Prepaid Card empowers cardholders to try new and exciting offerings, making it a quintessential card to enjoy all this first-of-its-kind event in our region has to offer.”

Emirates Islamic Expo Mastercard credit card
Emirates Islamic, part of the Emirates NBD Group, along with Mastercard and Expo 2020 Dubai, have unveiled a limited-edition free-for-life co-branded Mastercard World Credit Card.

Cardholders can earn up to three Emirates Islamic SmartMiles for every Dhs1 spent, subject to terms and conditions, as well as gain U By Emaar Gold Tier Status, 50 per cent cashback on their first Expo 2020 Dubai ticket transaction, and access to travel, hotels and lifestyle privileges offered by Mastercard.

Other benefits include a 10 per cent cashback on fuel, complimentary valet parking service at the Expo 2020 Dubai site, complimentary golf sessions, dining offers, and access to more than 1,000 airport lounges worldwide.

Customers can enjoy the flexibility to instantly redeem their Emirates Islamic SmartMiles for flights, hotels, and retail transactions anywhere in the world. Emirates Islamic SmartMiles can also be exchanged with multiple partner loyalty programmes.

Additionally, to celebrate this exclusive launch, customers can earn Dhs200/- statement credit and up to 5,500 Upoints – both subject to terms and conditions – as a welcome bonus, when they apply for the card. Members will be able to add their credit cards to mobile wallets.
