Massy Launches Credit Card, In Collaboration With Republic Bank

On Tuesday, November 11, Massy and Republic Bank signed an agreement to offer a Massy Credit Card – a credit card accepted at over 20 Massy merchants nationwide.  The participating Massy merchants, where the card will be accepted include:

  • Massy Automotive Components Ltd.
  • Massy Distribution (Trinidad)
  • Massy Machinery Ltd.
  • Massy Motors Ltd.
  • Massy Stores, Massy Stores SuperCentre & Massy Stores Pharmacy
  • Massy United Insurance Ltd.
  • Massy Technologies (Trinidad) Ltd.

The Massy Credit Card will offer a revolving line of credit, issued by Republic Bank Limited in collaboration with Massy. The card will function as a dual purpose card, combining our first class Massy Card Rewards with the flexibility of a payment card. In addition to being eligible to receive exclusive offers from Massy Stores nationwide, Massy Credit Card holders will receive an additional 50% Bonus on Massy Points at Massy Card partners – cardholders will continue to receive 10 points per $100 spent from Massy Card plus an additional 5 points per $100 spent when payment is made with the Massy Credit Card.  

In speaking about the launch at the contract-signing ceremony, Gervase Warner, President & Group CEO, Massy commented that “after launching our new brand and our new identity, Massy, we decided that we wanted to revolutionise the way our customers interface with us.  We wanted to create new opportunities for the customer to be more than a customer but rather, part of our family.  This means that we have to continuously find ways of making our customer interactions meaningful and rewarding so we developed the Loyalty Card concept even further to offer a Massy Credit Card.”  

“As a Massy Credit Card holder, a customer will now have the flexibility to pay for their goods and services at over 20 Massy merchants nationwide, earn 50% more points than before and have the opportunity to redeem the points for attractive gifts at participating Massy merchants and other partners.  For example, a customer can buy groceries with the Massy Credit Card, accumulate more points than ever before and be able to redeem them for their next purchase at Massy Motors, in a shorter time frame.  This is the value of being part of the Massy family, as a Massy Credit Card Holder.  We saw Republic Bank Limited as a trusted partner in this venture, with the right combination of technical competence and a commitment to customer service,” he added.

The Massy Credit Card was launched publicly today with a media campaign.  There will also be a series of promotional activities in the month of November and December at select Massy Stores locations.  RBL representatives will be present to facilitate customer applications.  Customers can also apply for the card at Massy Stores West Moorings on November 22nd, Massy Stores Marabella on November 28th and Massy Stores SuperCenter Gulf View on November 29th, 2014.
