Raiffeisenbank and MasterCard announce the launch of Raiffeisenbank’s MALINA® MasterCard debit card. Earlier, Raiffeisenbank’s line of co-branded products offered together with the MALINA accumulation programme included only a credit card.
The co-branded debit card gives holders the opportunity to join the MALINA accumulation programme and receive points when making purchases. For each 100 roubles spent on the card the holder receives 10 points. As well as this, 1,000 points are given to the holder every year on his/her birthday.
A pleasant addition is that the card provides access to an individual concierge service 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, in which card holders can receive information on hotels, restaurants, public transport, car rental, holiday resorts and much more. There are special conditions on Raiffeisenbank MALINA® MasterCard’s issued before May 31, 2012: the card is provided with no service fee for one year, and 10,000 points are given for purchases of 25,000 roubles or more made within three months of the date of issue of the card.
Raiffeisenbank’s MALINA® MasterCard is issued with the innovative MasterCard® PayPass™ one-touch payment technology which speeds up the payment process and makes it more convenient. The card must simply be touched on the PayPass terminal at the cash register. Payments under 1,000 roubles are made without entering the PIN code. For more detailed information on PayPass technology visit the website at http://www.paypass.ru/.
The card also contains a chip and supports the MasterCard® SecureCode™ system (3D-Secure protocol) which reduces the risk of its unauthorized use for purchases over the Internet.
You may open a new Raiffeisenbank MALINA® MasterCard debit card in any branch of Raiffeisenbank.
