This summer season, six RAKBANK MasterCard cardholders will be given the chance to win back the cost of their travel trips* through the MasterCard Cross-Border Promotion.
Covering two promotional periods running between June 15, 2010 to Aug 15, 2010 and November 15, 2010 to January 10, 2011, the promotion entitles three lucky MasterCard cardholders to stand a chance to win US$20,000 (Dh73,500) each during the first promotion period, and another three cardholders to stand a chance to win US$10,000 (Dh36,750) each during the second promotion period. Every time RAKBANK customers make an international transaction while traveling using their RAKBANK MasterCard credit or debit card, they gain one chance to enter the promotion draw.
"RAKBANK is constantly offering attractive deals and promotions to enhance the added-benefits of our credit cards. With travel season around the corner, we are confident that the MasterCard Cross-Border Promotion will bring greater value to our MasterCard credit and debit cardholders," said Ian Hodges, Head of Personal Banking at RAKBANK.

"By simply using their RAKBANK MasterCard cards, cardholders will continue to benefit from worldwide acceptance, security and convenience, while standing a chance of winning attractive rewards."
