KBC Bank Ireland Launches New Credit Card

14/04/14

Competitive APR and ‘Tap and Go’ transactions.

KBC Bank Ireland today launched a new credit card featuring competitive fees and contactless transactions.  The new MasterCard credit card has been designed to meet customers’ personal banking needs and bring greater choice to the Irish retail banking market.  
    
The product has a competitive interest rate of 14% (APR of 18.25%) on purchases and KBC is offering credit card switchers the opportunity to transfer and pay no interest on the transfer balance for the first six months.
 
Building on the success of its award winning debit card, KBC’s new credit card offers up to 56 days interest free credit, is accepted at over 36m locations worldwide and incorporates the new “tap and go” technology which allows customers to pay for purchases €15 or less without the use of their PIN. Customers can also apply for additional credit cards for family members for no extra charge. 

Speaking at the announcement of the new credit card, Dara Deering, Executive Director and Head of Retail Banking, KBC Bank Ireland said: “We are delighted to launch our new credit card, which features a competitive APR and low fees and charges. The product includes the latest technological innovations to ensure a user-friendly experience. KBC is committed to offering our customers a competitive range of retail banking products and the credit card is an important step on this journey.”

KBC continues to embark on an ambitious retail banking expansion, which in the last two years has seen the launch of a new current account product with full online and mobile banking facilities, a full suite of insurance products and an extensive network of retail banking hubs in Dublin, Cork, Limerick and Galway including the new hub in Grand Canal which opened today.
