National Bank introduces Gift Card with Christmas special
By VonDez Phipps
BASSETERRE, St. Kitts – THE St. Kitts-Nevis-Anguilla National Bank has introduced its MasterCard Gift Card and has launched it with a Christmas special for its customers and clients in the three-country service market.
The card is a prepaid card that can be used to purchase goods and services anywhere MasterCard is accepted, both in St Kitts & Nevis and throughout the world. The cards are similar to debit and credit cards and are loaded with sums of EC$100.00 and EC$200.00. The offer is free until December 31, after which a small charge would be applied for the service.
According to the Bank’s Marketing Department, the card is pre-printed with a card number, as on many credit cards, and is used just like cash with no name attached. It is to be used in full then discarded.
Marketing Officer Sheridan Hendrickson said, “We have a suite of card services available but this gift card is yet another option for everyone to enjoy banking at National. It is very ideal for the Christmas Season and may be used by persons who may not be able to hold a card under different circumstances. It is nothing like what has been given before; it is more flexible and can be used anywhere.
“It is yet another first from National Bank! The response has been very good so far; many persons have been asking questions and are showing great interest in the new service. We try to bring as many options as possible and always ensure that we provide the world’s latest financial services to our customers.”
Hendrickson informed that each gift card has an expiration date printed on the front of the card with the card’s value printed on the packaging. She added that recipients can also verify their card balance and track transactions online at www.nbcardservices.com.
She also stated that reloading gift cards and prepaid cards will soon be introduced and hinted that the Bank will soon be unveiling a new product that will “make banking even easier and more convenient”.
