When leading card brands RCBC Bankard and MasterCard join forces with another leading international brand, it can only mean one thing – another unique and world-class credit card is about to enter the market.
This time, it’s the much-awaited Mango-RCBC Bankard MasterCard, the latest addition to the rich roster of unique, value-driven cards currently being issued by banking stalwart Rizal Commercial Banking Corporation (RCBC) through its servicing entity Bankard, Inc. The card will be formally launched on March 24, 2010 at the Atrium, Eastwood Mall, in time for the launch of Mango’s spring and summer collection.
A co-brand card, Mango-RCBC Bankard MasterCard, is the product of the partnership between RCBC Bankard and Mango clothing company, a world-famous manufacturer and distributor of women’s and men’s apparel and accessories. Founded in 1984, the Mango clothing brand MNG has evolved into one of the leaders in European retail sales. The company is based in Barcelona, Spain, and currently has over 1,200 stores located in the metropolitan areas of over 93 countries worldwide. Asia is where the greatest expansion efforts of the company have been targeted and in the Philippines, Mango has just celebrated its 10th anniversary with the opening of two new stores in the heart of the Metropolis.
The Mango – RCBC Bankard MasterCard is targeted to serve the upscale shopping needs of both the vast majority of Mango patrons in the country as well as the fashion-conscious RCBC Bankard Gold and Platinum MasterCard cardholders. It carries exclusive features available only to its cardmembers such as 0% installment at 3 and 6 months at any Mango store; exclusive members-only sale only for Mango-RCBC Bankard cardmembers; priority access to next season’s catalog offers; and first-hand advice on the latest hot offers.
Like all RCBC Bankard cards, the Mango-RCBC Bankard MasterCard also has a rewards program that lets cardholders earn rewards points that they can use to exchange for more Mango items. What’s more, because it’s a MasterCard, it guarantees global recognition and wide acceptance in over 210 countries.
