UBA rewards cardholders

United Bank of Africa Plc says it has collaborated with Verve International to launch an offer tagged ‘UBA Verve Rewards.’ According to a statement by the bank, cardholders can win e-cash, free airtime, Nokia mobile phones and up to N35,000 cash. The bank said cardholders who used their Verve cards to initiate a minimum of five Point of Sale or VAS (value added service) transactions on the Automated Teller Machines worth N1, 000 or more would stand a chance to win N1,000 airtime.

A statement by the bank quoted the Chief Executive Officer, Verve International, Mr. Charles Ifedi, as expressing the company’s delight in partnering with the bank to reward new and existing Verve cardholders. “As Nigeria’s leading payment card brand, we are always looking for ways to improve our offer and encourage card pick-up and usage so that everyone can benefit from a cashless society” he said.

He also promised that UBA Verve cardholders would benefit from exciting gifts by activating and using their cards across all channels. Ifedi said, “Cardholders can use their Verve cards to make payments securely in-store at POS terminals, online and on mobile, and at the ATMs across the country. The reward scheme is primarily to encourage the use of the Verve debit card for local or domestic web and POS payments and also VAS (value added service) transactions on the ATM,” he said.

The Divisional Head, e-Banking, UBA, Dr. Yinka Adedeji, was quoted as assuring customers that using UBA Verve Cards was safe and secure.
