Zimbabwe’s Steward Bank has rolled-out the first MasterCards in the country. The new MasterCard World Rewards credit and debit cards are targeted at cosmopolitan customers.
The World Rewards Credit and Debit cards are premium banking products, which means that Steward Bank now offers a range of accounts and services to its clients whatever their financial status, whether they are young people starting out, or professionals at the pinnacle of their careers.
MasterCard licensed Steward Bank in 2013. Since then, the bank has launched Companion debit cards to EcoCash customers, and has partnered with HomeSend, allowing 1.5 million Steward Bank customers to receive funds from abroad safely and conveniently directly into their bank accounts. MasterCard World Rewards Credit and Debit Cards are available to Steward Bank customers by invitation only.
World Rewards gives MasterCard World cardholders access to a range of lifestyle privileges including exclusive offers on flights, accommodation, car hire, dining, retail, culture, sports and entertainment worldwide, as well as access to once-in-a-lifetime experiences through the MasterCard Priceless Cities and Priceless Africa programs.
Zimbabwe’s international travelers can access more than 500 exclusive airport lounges and can earn loyalty points each time they use their MasterCar World card in Zimbabwe and abroad. These points can be redeemed for flights, hotels and car rentals at the location of their choice.
