 This is the first category of Citi credit cards offered under the Mastercard platform in Bahrain.

The new card products offer a wide range of benefits to meet customers’ travel and lifestyle needs and provide the freedom to redeem points through an enhanced loyalty program — Citi ThankYou® Rewards to which customers are automatically enrolled.

According to data compiled by Citi, the bank has also seen its cards portfolio spend increase by 9% year on year recently, while new card acquisition increased by 40% in 2018.

Nader Moosa, Citi Consumer Bank Head, Bahrain said, “We want to be the best for our clients in Bahrain as they grow more digital. The Citi Mobile® App will deliver a simple experience to our card customers, giving them the peace of mind and the freedom to do more. We are also excited to introduce two new cards that truly turn everyday purchases into something bigger. The unique and simple rewards structure is a game changer in rewarding customers for day-to-day transactions.’’
