RuPay JCB card holders in Bahrain will get 40 per cent cashbacks


RuPay, in partnership with JCB International Co. Ltd., has rolled out the second phase of its limited-time special cashback offer scheme for all RuPay JCB debit and credit cardholders in Bahrain.

Till March 31, customers using a RuPay JCB Card will receive a 40 per cent cashback on purchases made at retail stores in Bahrain.

The maximum cashback amount per transaction will be ₹3,000, with an overall cap of ₹15,000 per card during the offer period.

President and COO of JCB International Co, Yoshiki Kaneko, said: “As part of our constant endeavour to offer great value to our customers, we are happy to launch a cashback campaign from December 29, 2022, to March 31, 2023, in Thailand, Singapore and Bahrain for our valued RuPay JCB cardmember family.

” We are sure our rapidly increasing Indian cardmember base will enjoy not just the many doors opened by JCB’s strong acceptance network but also a lucrative 40 per cent cashback on all face-to-face transactions made by them on their RuPay JCB Debit and Credit cards in these countries.”

Chief of products of National Payments Corporation of India, Kunal Kalawatia, said: “We are happy to announce the second phase of our cashback offer scheme for all RuPay JCB Credit and Debit Cardholders. After launching the first phase of this offer and receiving positive feedback on it, we now want to expand the offering to more geographies so that an extended pool of Indian travellers can benefit from lucrative cashback.

“During the New Year season, Bahrain, Thailand and Singapore typically see an influx of Indian tourists. Therefore, we have attempted to synchronise the appropriate locations with the opportune time in introducing the continuation of our cashback offer scheme for RuPay JCB Cardholders. Furthermore, with a growing international acceptance network and the sustaining actualisation of the pent-up demand for international travel, we hope to continue to provide such attractive offers in other regions in the future.”

The first part of the cashback scheme was introduced on October 1. According to the offer scheme, RuPay JCB Debit and Credit Cardholders are being offered identical cashback benefits for in-store purchases made in Qatar, the UAE and Australia via their cards up until December 31.

According to a new report by the Central Bank of Bahrain, digital wallet transactions in Bahrain tripled last year supported by the proliferation of new technologies, along with changes in consumer behaviour.
