Russia’s Raiffeisenbank: new card for Premium Direct clients

Raiffeisenbank is offering its clients the opportunity to receive a new card as part of the Premium Direct service package — a Platinum MasterCard. Previously, the Visa Platinum Premium Direct only was available to Premium Direct clients.

Platinum MasterCard holders will benefit from the higher daily limit on cash withdrawals, and also from free emergency cash in the event of the card being lost abroad. In addition, the Raiffeisenbank Platinum MasterCard features the innovative one-touch MasterCard PayPass payment system, which allows holders to make purchases quickly and easily.

«According to our estimates, the number of premium clients interested in remote banking services is set to grow quickly — by about 30-40% per year. Accordingly, the issue of cards targeting this client segment will grow at a similar rate, as will the number of card transactions. In this regard, as part of the Premium Direct package, we are increasing the range of plastic cards on offer,» said Alexey Kapustin, Head of Retail Products and Customer Relations at Raiffeisenbank.

The first 150 clients who take out a Premium Direct package with a Platinum MasterCard card from February 1 to February 28, 2013 will receive a gift certificate worth RUR 10 000. In addition, the three clients who make the most payments on this card from February 1 to March 31, 2013 will receive an invitation for six people to a play at the Bolshoi Theatre.

The Premium Direct package includes up to five debit and three premium credit cards with no fees, as well as a current account (roubles) with a higher interest rate. Premium Direct clients can also benefit from the dedicated telephone line for day-to day requests and advice from their remote personal manager.

More detailed terms and conditions can be found on the official Raiffeisenbank website.
