Citigroup Inc. has begun offering a suite of credit card services for consumers from overseas countries living in South Korea, its Citibank Korea business said.
Under the program, launched Nov. 1, cardholders receive 5% off their grocery bills when shopping at Haddon House, a popular supermarket in Seoul frequented by expatriates.
Additionally, the English-language service includes text-message notifications of transactions and offers, electronic statements, Internet and mobile banking, and a 24/7 help line.
The issuer also is making a concierge service available through a dedicated call center. A dedicated website provides special functionalities, including text notifications, online reservations and driving directions.
Expats may apply for three Visa-branded credit cards: the Citi PremierMiles card, the Shinsegae Citicard Quattro and the Citi Revolving Visa card. The PremierMiles card comes with an annual fee of $10, and the annual fee for the two others is close to $5.
