‘Double UAB Rewards’ on School Fees and Weekend Spends

United Arab Bank (UAB), FC Barcelona’s official partner in the UAE, is offering customers ‘Double UAB Rewards’ when they pay school fees or spend on the weekends with their UAB credit cards.

Customers who use their UAB credit card can pay school fees worldwide over twelve easy monthly instalments at low interest rates and still be eligible for double UAB Rewards, an offer unmatched by any other bank in the Middle East.

Tony B Graham, Executive Vice President of Retail Banking at UAB, said: “School fees are one of the largest and most important expenses for families with children in the UAE. This offer enables UAB card holders to spread this expenditure over the course of the school year while simultaneously earning double rewards in the best loyalty programme in the UAE.”

“In addition, our cardholders can also earn double rewards through our Weekend Bonanza offer, applicable on purchases made during Thursday, Friday or Saturday. Both offers demonstrate our commitment to delivering unmatched value for our credit card and salary transfer customers. There really is no better bank for your salary than United Arab Bank,” he added.

UAB Rewards was named ‘Best Loyalty Programme’ at the 2015 Banker Middle East Awards for the third consecutive year. The programme enables a majority of UAB customers to earn a free flight to their home country immediately upon transferring their salary and taking a UAB credit card. Eligibility and rewards earned depends on each customer’s individual salary as well as their travel destination and date of travel booking.

Customers can redeem UAB Rewards for flights on more than 900 airlines including low cost carriers – with no blackout booking periods – rooms in over 450,000 hotels worldwide and car rentals at 150 global destinations, in addition to redeeming points for electronics and official FC Barcelona merchandise.
