Mashreq launches UAE’s first ‘selfie’ credit card


First there was the diamond-embedded credit card, then there was a scented version… Now, you can get your own face on one!

You read that right; the UAE’s Mashreq Bank has introduced Portraits, the country’s first ever ‘selfie’ bank card.

So how can you get one? Through the bank’s online platform, customers can upload a pic from their mobile phone and receive a new card with their photo on the front. But it doesn’t necessarily have to be a snap of you, as you can even choose from Mashreq’s gallery of existing pictures.

“Portraits not only allows you to express your true selfie on your card, but is backed with an innovative, never before ‘direct-from-mobile’ upload process that makes the whole selfie-to-card experience seamless for the customer,” said Nimish Dwivedi, head of payments at Mashreq.

The selfie card is currently only available for the Platinum Elite card customers, but it will soon be extended to all the bank’s credit and debit cards. Portraits comes with several benefits and rewards, including dining offers, health and wellness discounts, and travel benefits.
