Bank Rakyat Indonesia (BANK BRI) and JCB International Indonesia, a subsidiary of JCB International, have rolled out the BRI JCB platinum credit card in the BRI JCB Indonesia Open 2016.
The card will be released in the market in the next spring 2017.
The Indonesian lender believes that the BRI JCB platinum credit card is a strategic complement to its product line for the consumer segment, particularly as a credit card product to tap the traveller segment.
The cardholders can avail double BRI points at all merchants such as restaurants, airlines, golf courses and car rental; triple BRI points for transactions overseas; as well as 0? instalment conversion for all transactions overseas for the first year.
BRI points earned by the BRI JCB platinum card members can be redeemed into airline miles, exemptions of card annual fees and a variety of other exciting promos.
Additionally, JCB offers a range of features that support travel requirements such as free access to 28 airport lounges in Japan, 26 lounges in China, two lounges in Korea, and one lounge each in Singapore, Thailand, and Hong Kong.
Furthermore, JCB provides JCB Plaza Lounge in numerous business and travel destinations such as Tokyo, Paris, Honolulu, Hong Kong, Guam, and Singapore.
BRI managing director Sis Apik said: “We are optimistic about issuing 50,000 cards from early Q1 2017 until Q4 2017.
“BRI believes that this JCB brand credit card will grab the travel segment, increase the BRI number of cards and card usage for travel, for both domestic and overseas destinations.”
