Mashreq & Visa officials unveil the card
Mashreq today unveiled its new, super-premium card, the Mashreq Solitaire Credit Card aimed exclusively at the discerning, affluent customer.

The card offers a sparkling array of bespoke privileges and rarified experiences here in the UAE and across the globe. Solitaire cardholders get to enjoy a customized Rewards program, Salaam Carats, that offers significant value across local and international spend, backed by the first ever choice of redemption options across over fifty and growing luxury brands of the stature of Mulberry, Michael Kors, PaulSmith, Roberto Coin, Tanagra, Lacoste, Geox, Kenzo, Paspaley, & Carolina Herrera.
Additionally, cardholders are assured of personalized shopping assistance, access to by-invitation only events and previews to the brands’ latest collections. Solitaire also caters to premium lifestyle preferences through year-round Golfing privileges offered on a complimentary basis by Mashreq, 24X7 availability of an international Concierge service for assistance with customers’ travel, dining and entertainment requirements and lounge access at over 650 airports worldwide. For the gourmand, Solitaire provides exclusive discounts at over 50 fine-dining establishments in the UAE.
