Arsenal Football Club and MBNA have launched a new credit card offer for customers and fans, now with a new and extended balance transfer window.
Arsenal fans across the UK are able to apply for the new Arsenal Credit Card, which now offers 16 months at zero per cent on balance transfers* and three months at zero per cent on purchases*.
As an extra incentive, fans successfully applying for the new Arsenal Credit Card and spending £200 on their card within 90 days of their account opening will receive a free 1989 retro-style shirt signed by club legend Alan Smith.
The Arsenal Credit Card is available at http://www.arsenal.com/arsenalcreditcard.
Michael Donald, MBNA’s Business Development and Marketing executive, said: “We’re delighted to be able to make this new deal available to Arsenal fans across the UK.
“Over the years, we have forged a strong relationship with Arsenal Football Club, and we are continuing to work together to develop a product that offers supporters a great deal, whilst contributing to the future of the club.”
The Arsenal Credit Card also offers fans fantastic rewards. For every £1 spent on the card customers get one reward point and the points can be redeemed for exclusive club-based rewards such as stadium tours, merchandise and visits to Arsenal’s training ground. In addition to the rewards programme, a percentage of all Arsenal Credit Card transactions go towards the Arsenal Youth Academy
Vinai Venkatesham, Arsenal’s head of Global Partnerships, added: “Since we started working together, MBNA has consistently developed products which appeal directly to our fan base. The new Arsenal Credit Card is another excellent example of this, offering our fans a range of opportunities to get closer to the club through the exclusive rewards programme.”
The affinity partnership MBNA has established with Arsenal in the UK is one of MBNA’s most successful sports credit card programmes.
Representative example 16.9% p.a. variable on card purchases. This is equivalent to 16.9% APR representative variable based on a credit limit of £1200.
