Gulf Bank enhances rewards programme
Kuwait City, January 23, 2013
Gulf Bank has announced the enhancement of its Gulf Rewards programme, a one-of-its-kind programme in Kuwait, which allows its credit cardholders to redeem their loyalty points with more than 300 airlines and over 150,000 hotels world-wide.
This unique programme rewards credit card customers with instantly redeemable points that are exchangeable for an unparalleled range of travel offers and benefits, a statement from the bank said.
Points are awarded for every transaction made with either a Gulf Bank Visa or Gulf Bank MasterCard credit card, cash withdrawal or POS, and the more a customer spends on their credit card, either locally or internationally, the more points they will earn.
Points can be redeemed for flights or hotel bookings from partner airlines and hotel operators at any time through the bank’s website.
Aly Shalaby, general manager, consumer banking group, Gulf Bank, said: “Gulf Bank’s rewards programme is unique in that customers can book flights and vacations at a moment’s notice, choosing their flights or hotels from one of the widest selections of airlines and hotels currently on offer anywhere in the world.”
“Unlike other schemes, ours allows customers to book flights 365 days a year without seasonal travel restrictions or limits on seats, and it also covers all hotel room types and even allows customers to benefit from extra air miles or points with the airlines or hotels they are booking with. We value our customers’ loyalty and we believe in building long- term relationships, which is why we try so hard to provide customers with the best services available,” Shalaby said.
Gulf Rewards makes it easy for customers to exchange points for flights or hotel vouchers. To ensure the redemption procedure is as straight forward as possible, Gulf Bank has created a dedicated webpage on its website, where customers can view their points, check their balance and booking history, redeem points instantly, receive e-ticket confirmation of their bookings, and benefit from frequently advertised special offers. – TradeArabia News Service
