Frederic de Melker, Managing Director of Personal Banking at RAKBANK, said:

When designing this card and its campaign, we considered three main factors. Firstly, we made sure it truly offers the best value for customers versus what is available in the market whereby we made it simple for our cardholders to know exactly how many skyward miles they are earning, based on their spends in dirhams. Additionally, we designed this card with an innovative concept that was targeted at capturing customer needs with regards to lifestyle benefits like shopping, staycations and more. Lastly, we created options to reward cardholders for every action they take – whether joining, or spending or transferring balances, or maybe even choosing to do all. We truly believe we have created something unique in the market – such offers are hard to come across and cardholders should make the most of it. The best opportunity to save on Skywards Miles is here. The time to act is now.”
