  • Customers urged to shop online and use contactless card feature

Manama, Bahrain: Al Salam Bank-Bahrain, the pioneering Shari'a-compliant Bank in the Kingdom, launched a debit, credit and prepaid card promotion offering a cash prize based on local spending while highlighting important safety practices. The Bank continues to urge its customers to conduct their purchasing online and to utilize the contactless feature on the cards at POS (Point of Sale) terminals for physical purchases. The cardholder with the highest number of transactions, irrespective of the transaction value, will win BD 500.

Al Salam Bank-Bahrain Head of Retail Banking, Mohammed Buhijji said: “This promotion has always been among our most popular because it considers the number of transactions rather than the total value, widening the pool of eligible customers. It covers all local and online transactions, helping to spread our safety message to as many people as possible during these challenging times.”

He added: “We want our customers to be able to continue to maintain their lifestyles while still taking sensible health precautions. Combating the spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19) is a national and global effort which requires the cooperation of all, including individuals and corporates. For physical purchases, we urge our customers to use the ‘tap and go’ contactless feature on their card which is the safest payment method available. Alternatively and preferably, customers should capitalize on the comfort of shopping online.”

The promotion will run from 19 April to 30 May. For further information, visit  or contact the customer care center on 17005500.
