BP and Citi Handlowy will launch a co-branding card “based on a selfie”

BP, one of the biggest petrochemical companies worldwide and one of the leading companies in the Polish fuel market, executed an agreement on launching a new co-branding credit card with Citi Handlowy. The card offers its users a program of benefits available at BP gas stations.

Owing to the cooperation, clients of BP will gain access to a new credit card, issued based on the so-called “selfie”. It will be really easy to apply for the card – all you need to do is send a photo of yourself taken in a selfie mode. Citi Handlowy, the leading company in the card products market in Poland, introduced this innovative biometrics solution this year.
- Cooperation with BP corresponds to our strategic goal – to offer the best solutions to our clients, tailored to their needs. We are joining forces and harnessing cutting-edge technologies to allows the clients of our companies to implement their plans in an easy and quick way,- said Katarzyna Przybyła, the Head of the Unsecured Credit Products Division at Citi Handlowy.
- We are watching trends, listening to our clients and introducing innovative solutions. Cooperation between BP and Citi Handlowy will yield a unique financial product for BP clients: a credit card offering multiple benefits, including cash back up to PLN 240 a year, also for purchases at BP gas stations. I am positive that clients will appreciate the easy card application process, exemption from the issuance and usage fee, as well as benefits resulting from payments made with the Citi-BP card - said Barbara Wiążewska, Director General of BP Retail in Poland.
The new credit card will be issued without an annual fee. It will be linked to a benefit program, under which clients can gain up to PLN 240 a year to fill up their car for free and access seasonal special offers at BP gas stations, among others. Clients will also receive a free package of services – Citi Alerts notifications and up to 56 days interest-free, as well as discounts under the Citi Specials program for automotive products and services. They will also have access to pre-sales of tickets to the concerts organized by Live Nation and discounts up to 10% at more than 150 restaurants in Poland.
Cooperation with Citi Handlowy is a part of BP’s strategy to offer its clients innovative solutions, which allow them to easily take advantage of a program of benefits and services beyond the company’s standard offer. The new card is introduced as a continuation of the partnership cooperation between BP and Citi Handlowy. In the past, the companies issued a BP Payback card together.
- It is a perfect example of how we can help our partners – big international corporations – develop their business thanks to excellent cooperation, and we ourselves can reach new groups of clients - said Jacek Czerniak, GSG Division Head at Citi Handlowy.
