From the 14th and up to the 15th of April, Raiffeisenbank is conducting a «closed sale» of credit cards in a number of Moscow branches.
During this action, the bank is offering to open a credit card with a reduced interest rate of 19.5%. For Visa Classic and MasterCard Standard cards, the first year of service will be free, and for Visa/MasterCard Gold cards the annual service fee is reduced to RUR 900.
«I hope that this reduced-price card offer will make the use of Raiffeisenbank’s credit cards even more advantageous for the card holders,» says Andrey Stepanenko, member of the board of ZAO Raiffeisenbank, head of retail private individuals directorate. «On this occasion, the sale only takes place in selected Moscow branches; we are planning to extend the offer to other branches soon.»
