Standard Chartered launches Visa Cards in Kumasi – Starr Fm


Standard Chartered Bank has launched its Visa Infinite and Visa Platinum credit cards in the Ashanti regional capital, Kumasi.

The Visa Infinite credit card which is the first of its kind in Ghana also marks another milestone of the bank’s 120 years of existence.

Holders of the new credit cards are eligible to benefit from a whopping US$2.5million complimentary travel insurance, unlimited airport lounge access, rewards on shopping and so much more.

Head of Retail Banking, Standard Chartered Bank, West Africa, Henry Baye told Ultimate
Business that “there are a number of things that our credit cards bring.

“The first one is that it helps to facilitate payments, so when you go anywhere and you need to buy things, you don’t always want have to carry cash on your pocket.”

He added: “In the case of the credit cards, you can make your payments without carrying cash or without having the cash in your account. The second thing is that the cards that we are bringing also come with global rewards. While you are spending on your account, you are actually creating points that enable you to make more money.

“The points that you gather anytime you use your credit card either online or on a point-of-sale machine, it enables you to build points that you can redeem for actual things like air tickets, pay your hotel bills, shop and many things”.

With innovative technology, the Visa Infinite and Visa Platinum cards have been encoded with unique security features that aim at protecting the personal data of users.

Baye further mentioned that Standard Chartered Bank will give the Visa Infinite and Visa Platinum credit card holders, interest-free money to spend, if only they can repay the amount in 50 days.

Standard Chartered Bank which won the award for the Best Trade Finance at the 16th Ghana Banking Awards held in July 2017 said it remains committed to the provision of world class banking products and services to every individual.
