National Bank of Kuwait (NBK) has extended its strategic partnership agreement with global digital payments leader, Visa for additional 7 years in order to enhance its ability to meet customers’ needs.

This comes as part of the bank’s endeavors to tie up with leading institutions across all sectors, which further enhances its capability to match up to the customers’ needs and expectations.

On this occasion, NBK announced that NBK KWT Visa Infinite Credit Cardholders can get 10 percent additional NBK KWT Points when using the card during FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022.

In the context of NBK’s partnership with Visa, the bank launched NBK KWT Visa Infinite Credit Card at the beginning of the year, with an exceptional package of rewards tailored to customers’ various needs and lifestyles.

The uniquely designed card, for the first time in Kuwait, can be activated through NBK Mobile Banking App, simply by tapping the card on the smartphone. It also gives customers the flexibility to choose the way they want to earn points based on their lifestyle, either the “Spends Tier” or “Merchant Category” option.
