“At Alshaya we operate a wide range of exciting international retail brands, that provide consumers in the region with great shopping experiences across different sectors including Fashion and Footwear, Food, Health and Beauty and Home Furnishing,” said Hilary Baker, Vice President, Corporate Communications, M.H. Alshaya Co. “We are pleased to partner with the card loyalty programme at Emirates NBD and are delighted that our partnership can add value to Emirates NBD card holders.”
Plus Points, the loyalty programme specific to Emirates NBD Credit Cards, allows cardholders to earn up to two points on card spend depending on the credit card, which can then be redeemed for an extensive range of gift voucher options across categories including travel, entertainment, fashion and lifestyle, jewellery and watches, electronics, daily shopping and malls.
Through the partnership with Alshaya, Emirates NBD card holders can now redeem their Plus Points at some of the world’s most recognised brands, including H&M, Debenhams, Next, Starbucks, Pottery Barn and Mothercare.
