Resort developer and operator Sands China in collaboration with ICBC and MasterCard has rolled out two credit cards under its loyalty programme Sands Lifestyle.
The co-branded credit cards – Sands Lifestyle Platinum MasterCard and Sands Lifestyle World MasterCard – allow cardholders to earn points when shopping or travelling across the world and then redeem them in Macao within Sands Resorts Macao’s integrated resorts.
Shoppers can earn up to three times more points when they shop and 20 times more points when they stay at Sands Resorts Macao properties. Additionally, ICBC (Asia) gives three times more points when they spend overseas with the card.
The programme also marks the launch of MasterCard’s Pay with Rewards in Asia Pacific, providing cardholders the choice and freedom to spend points like cash at the moment of purchase.
Cardholders can avail a number of exclusive benefits including hotel stays, dining, shopping, events and entertainment.
They can also enjoy discounts on accommodation packages, ferry tickets, air travel and holiday packages with Cotai Travel, special offers at selected restaurants, among other benefits.
MasterCard co-president for Asia-Pacific region Ling Hai said: “It is an honour for MasterCard to celebrate yet another milestone in China with our partners to help cardholders benefit from payment solutions that are faster, safer, more secure, more convenient and more rewarding.
“Today represents a number of firsts for us in China. It is the first time we are partnering with Sands China Ltd., one of the largest leisure brands and most popular lifestyle destinations in the region.”
At the outset, the programme will only be available for customers residing in Hong Kong and Macao.
Customers living in Hong Kong can apply to join the program at ICBC (Asia) branches in Hong Kong or through the ICBC (Asia) website, while customers living in Macao can apply at ICBC (Macao) branches or via the ICBC (Macau) website.
