BDO Diners Club Credit Cards Launch

BDO Unibank, Inc. (BDO) and Discover formally launch Diners Club International as the most recent addition to BDO's roster of credit card brand partners at an exclusive gathering last May 24, 2018 held at Sage Bespoke Grill, Makati Shangri-La.


Diners Club Cards now form part of the bank's extensive line-up of credit card offerings.


"BDO carries the most number of credit card brands, and the widest range of credit cards in the country," says Rolando C. Tanchanco, BDO Executive Vice President and Consumer Lending Group Head. “As an ideal complement to our credit cards business line, we introduce the BDO Diners Club Credit Cards to further expand the dining and travel perks and privileges we offer our cardholders."


With BDO being the exclusive issuer of Diners Club Cards in the Philippines, as well as the acquirer for Diners Club International, Diners Club Philippines Cardholders can now take advantage of a wide range of first-rate services and benefits afforded to all BDO Credit Cardholders, as well as access to over 1,200 operating branches nationwide and a large base of merchant acceptance locations.


Diners Club International extends its global merchant footprint to BDO, allowing local cardholders access to more than 28 million merchants all over the world wherever Diners Club International is accepted.


“Diners Club is excited to work with BDO, the largest bank in the Philippines, to offer its customers the new and improved Diners Club card product with rich features and benefits,” said Joe Hurley, Senior Vice President and Head of Global Business Development for Discover. “We're happy to provide BDO Cardholders more choice in payments and access to acceptance around the globe on the Discover Global Network.”


Locally, two (2) types of Diners Club Cards will be issued, the BDO Diners Club International Credit Card and BDO Diners Club Premiere Credit Card. Both cards earn instant miles for every purchase, P50 to 1 mile and P30 to 1 mile respectively—one of the lowest spend requirement to earn miles in the industry.


Likewise, BDO Diners Club Premiere Credit Cardholders who have a penchant for luxury dining can avail of a special double your miles privilege for all dining merchants, local and overseas.


To complement the cards' miles for every spend value proposition, BDO Diners Club Cardholders are entitled to enjoy a host of other travel-related benefits:
