Standard Chartered Rewards its customers with Free Movie Shows to Its Credit Card Holders in Oman
Oman, March 2009: Standard Chartered has led the way in fulfilling its promise as the Right Partner to reward customer loyalty by bringing Hollywood and Bollywood to its customers – providing free movie shows to its credit card holders.
The promotion, which underscores the Bank’s commitment to focus on meeting the lifestyle benefits of its customers, offers Standard Chartered credit card holders in Oman free viewings to the latest movies from Hollywood or Bollywood at the Shatti Cinema every alternate Friday starting 13 March 2009. Each show is exclusive to Standard Chartered customers and entry is based on a first come first served basis when, customers show both their credit card and ID.
Bikram Rishi, Head of Consumer Banking for Standard Chartered Bank in Oman said, “The free movie ticket promotion confirms our commitment to reward our customers for their loyalty and business. As the right partner, we will continue to lead the way in delighting our customers by offering then the best-in-class innovative products and services.”
According to Mr Rishi, prospective customers who apply for a credit card without a salary transfer, will qualify for free movie shows. Existing customers, who hold a Standard Chartered Bank credit card, automatically qualify for the promotion.
The launch of the free move shows is the latest in a list of innovative ‘lifestyle benefits’ introduced by Standard Chartered Bank in Oman. E-statements and payments of credit card dues at Oman UAE Exchange offices are some of the other initiatives from Standard Chartered Bank, which are unique and the first of their kind in the Sultanate of Oman, building on 40 years of leading customer service.
