Coffee come-on for Citibank Thailand cardholders
In a new deal with Citibank Thailand, customers can use points to buy coffee at the Starbucks Reserve Experience Store at All Seasons Place in Bangkok.
Under the new “Pay with Points at Starbucks” program, Starbucks regulars with Citi cards can earn points when buying coffee, food and merchandise. They will also receive an instant cash rebate when paying with any type of Citibank card – Citi Ultima, Classic, Makro, M Select, Prestige, Reward, Reward MasterCard, Reward Visa or Select.
Card holders should be able to use their points flexibly at any Starbucks location, says Citibank Thailand head of credit cards Sandeep Batra.
Starbucks is the bank’s first partner in “Pay with Points”, with other lifestyle partners coming on board soon, says Batra.
In the trend away from a cash society, Starbucks likes to offer different methods of payment and has its own credit card and app, says Starbucks Coffee (Thailand) director Murray Darling.
Meanwhile, Starbucks has just introduced Nitro Cold Brew in Thailand. This infuses the chain’s signature cold brew with nitrogen for 14 hours. It is served without ice, straight from the tap, offering a velvety, creamy, beerlike texture.
