Apply Credit Card Online via Citibank

Apply Credit Card Online via Citibank

I love anything that involves internet - research, social media, online banking and communications. It gives me time to do more important things or allows me to multi-task. 

Citibank recently launch an innovation that allows one to apply credit card online and know if he/she qualified in just minutes - this is a first in the Philippines. 




Apply Credit Card Online and Get Digitized Rewards


For those who prefer to apply via booths, they can still get rewards in digitized form. From now until April 30, by completing an application online one can already receive an electronic voucher, which you can redeem for an Auntie Anne’s pretzel and iced tea. Upon approval clients who are getting their first Citi credit card and make a purchase of Php 20,000 or more within 60 days are also eligible to get a Fitbit Charge 2 fitness wristband. 

Citibank Merchant Partners and Discouts

Citi also recently unveiled another strategic digital partnership, this time with Amazon. The Philippines will come next after Thailand where credit card holders can now use their Rewards Points to pay for purchases at Amazon.com.

In the Philippines, its regional digital partners include: Booky, an offline restaurant finder; Zennya, the world’s first spa on-demand app; Lazada, the leading online shopping mall in the country; and Grab, Southeast Asia’s leading ride-hailing platform.

It is always good to see how technology and brands like Citibank work to make life easier for consumers. Over the last year, Citi launched the newly-refreshed Citi Mobile App in Asia featuring easy-to- use functionality and interfaces such as Snapshot and Touch ID which has seen over 2m million downloads to-date. The bank also was the first to launch Voice Biometrics across the region which has since received more than 700,000 sign-ups from customers with over 1m clients consenting.
