Al-Fouzan added that once the card is activated, the client will be granted 3333 points bonus and 4 points for every purchase worth KD 1. Clients are granted a wide range of redemption options, including talk time, clothes, electronics, air tickets, fuel, restaurants, meals and more. He further explained that the KFH-Nojoom co-branded MasterCard Prepaid Card allows cardholders to take advantage of 50% discount at 500 stores, and grants automatic membership of the Privilege Club card to avail of up to 25% discounts at Crowne Plaza and Holiday Inn restaurants.

Furthermore, Al-Fouzan mentioned that this card is a safer option than carrying money, and allows clients to control their expenses.
