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.
