Emphasizing that the budget-friendly Saglam Kart distinguishes from its competitors in that it offers installment options for buying basic consumption items and gold savings features, Mr. Mehmet Oral, EVP of Retail Banking Group at Kuveyt Türk said: “There are around 58 million credit cards in Turkey and according to 2016 data, around 2 million card holders suffer problems in paying the card debts. These figures reveals the importance of acting prudently in use of credit cards. We have designed Saglam Card keeping this very point in mind. With this card, we aimed at supporting our clients at any time they need stopping them from making unnecessary or impulsive shopping and encouraging them buying only required items. With Saglam Card we believe would bring in a new perspective in the sector, we are pleased to add another step in line with ‘Sound Banking’ approach of Kuveyt Türk.”

Gold Points turn into savings in gold account

Stating that unlike other cards in the market, they aim at encouraging conscious spending, Mr. Mehmet Oral, EVP of Retail Banking Group at Kuveyt added: “With this credit card, instead of giving restricted and time-limited points to our clients, we are aiming at giving them gold points to be used freely or converted into savings and repay their education and healthcare spending in installments with no extra charge. When the Gold Points offered by Sağlam Card exceeds 10 TL, they are automatically transferred to Gold Current Account of our clients. Saglam Card holders are free to keep the gold in that account or convert to Turkish Liras or withdraw as gram gold from any Kuveyt Türk branch offices.”
