Doha Bank customer receives free air tickets from redeemed points
Doha Bank, the leading private commercial bank in Qatar, recently congratulated its Dream Credit Cardholder Mr. Samer Abboud on completing the highest redemption of Doha Bank Dream Loyalty Points in 2013, when he redeemed a mammoth 240,000 Dream Points at Mannai Air Travel, earlier this year. The redeemed Dream Points were used to purchase air tickets from Mannai Air Travel, one the leading partners of Doha Bank’s Dream loyalty programme.
This underlines the success of Doha Bank’s Dream Loyalty Card in helping customers utilise their points for free air travel and holidays, thus making the entire experience more rewarding.
Dream Card customers can redeem their points for anything from a cup of coffee to airline tickets to any destination on any airline from partner merchants throughout the year. Promotions and benefits are available on www.dohabank.com.qa.
A special ceremony was held at Doha Bank’s headquarters in West Bay to congratulate the customer and the merchant partner.
During the ceremony, Doha Bank Group CEO, Dr. R. Seetharaman said: “This year, Doha Bank has taken active measures to champion the highest redemptions each month to highlight the wide range of merchant partners and redemption options available to our valued card holders.
