CHESTER, England, July 3, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --
Manchester United and MBNA renew credit card partnership
Manchester United Football Club and MBNA have agreed terms on a renewed contract and today re launch the Manchester United credit card.
Manchester United fans across the UK are now able to apply for the credit card, which offers a range of "money can't buy" prizes and discounts simply by spending.
The Manchester United credit card is available at http://www.manutd.com/financepartners
For every £50 they spend on the card, cardholders will be entered into a monthly prize draw offering them the chance to win signed Manchester United shirts and pennants as well as limited edition action prints of members of the first team such as Welbeck, Smalling and Macheda.
Simply by using the Manchester United Credit Card, fans can also benefit from a range of club discounts, including ten per cent off purchases in the UK Megastore dining at the Red Café, and the Club's online Megastore, plus twenty per cent off museum and stadium tours*.
Manchester United's Commercial Director, Richard Arnold comments: "This is the only credit card of its kind available to our eight million devoted followers in the UK. Different fans have different ways of showing their support and I am sure that many of them will find this card of interest because of the unique Red Rewards prizes and rewards it offers and because of the reassurance that it is brought to them by MBNA, one of the country's most familiar and trusted card suppliers."
Michael Donald, MBNA's Business Development and Marketing executive, said: "Over the years we have forged a strong relationship with Manchester United Football Club and, together, we have developed a credit card programme that offers supporters some fantastic deals, whilst contributing to the future of the club."
The affinity partnership MBNA has established with Manchester United in the UK is one of MBNA's most successful sports credit card programmes.
The Manchester United credit card offers zero per cent on balance transfers for 12 months (three per cent handling fee applies) as long as it is made in the first 90 days of the account opening. It also includes zero per cent on card purchases for three months from the date an account is opened.
Representative example 16.9% p.a. variable on card purchases. This is equivalent to 16.9% APR representative variable based on a credit limit of £1200.
* Terms apply. Full details of these offers are available on the website and within customer's terms and conditions.
