Namibia: Bank Windhoek Launches Visa Credit Cards

Windhoek — Bank Windhoek has officially introduced Gold and Platinum Visa credit cards.

"This is a long sought-after milestone for Bank Windhoek. The new Bank Windhoek Visa Gold and Platinum credit cards are our customers' pass to risk-free online transacting and single-view management of accounts on the bank's electronic banking channels, including our Mobile App and iBank. Most importantly, these Bank Windhoek Visa Gold and Platinum credit cards offer our customers the lifestyle they deserve," said Bank Windhoek's Executive Officer of Retail Banking Services, Chris Matthee.

The Bank Windhoek Visa Gold Credit Card is targeted at Selekt 2000 Account holders while Selekt 5 000 and Selekt 10 000 customers have access to the Visa Platinum Credit Card. Both credit cards can be used globally.

The Visa Platinum and Visa Gold Credit Cards offer a 55-day interest-free period on all transactions and free point of sale and e-commerce (online) transactions. "Customers also receive Fraud Claims Cover and Travel Insurance on both cards at no extra cost," said Matthee.

Potential customers are required to have a Bank Windhoek Current or Transactional Account to qualify for this facility. Bank Windhoek's Visa Gold and Platinum Credit Cards are linked to these Current or Transactional Accounts and can thus be viewed and managed via Internet Banking and the Mobile App.

Other features include free balance enquiries at Bank Windhoek ATMs, free 24- hour access via the Bank Windhoek Mobile App and Internet Banking, instant transfers between credit cards and other Bank Windhoek accounts, free SMS notifications, attractive interest rates on a positive balance and sending an EasyWallet from your Credit Card account, using Internet Banking, the Mobile App and Cellphone Banking.

"In terms of security, the cards are fitted with a chip, which offers better security and has a sleek, minimalistic and modern design," concluded Matthee.
