Yoigo and Cetelem launch the “Yoicard”, a card tailored to digital customers

Subsequently, and after their approval for obtaining the card based on the basic principles of responsible and sustainable credit, customers will receive their “Yoicard” and will be able to use it immediately.

This card has highly beneficial financial conditions, as well as discounts and promotions for those customers who decide to sign up for it:

  • Its service is free: no commission for issue or service is charged to the customer.
  • The payment for the purchases that the customer makes with their “Yoicard” is established at the end of each month, allowing the client to use the card free of charge.
  • Customers can split their payments into 3 instalments with a commission of 2%, or into 6 or 12 instalments with a fixed commission of 3%. The cost conditions of this financing are among the most competitive in the market.
  • And, additionally, the card features contactless technology, allowing customers to pay for their purchases more easily, by tapping their card on the point of sale terminal. The card will also come with Samsung Pay for those with relevant smartphones.

Customers with this new card can carry out all their management and maintenance via the Cetelem app, its website or by telephone with the “Yoicard” customer service.

Launch offer with a free phone for customers

The new Yoigo credit card is being released with a special promotion as a launch offer. Customers with a monthly “Yoicard” spend of over €200 will be refunded their mobile phone financing payment regardless of the cost, so it can end up being completely free of charge.

In the initial phase the card will be sold in a selection of Yoigo stores, combined with the financing process of a new mobile phone. The objective is to expand the offer to all channels, as well as to make it independent from the mobile phone financing process.

It’s a pleasure for us to offer our customers financial services beyond telecommunications, with genuine added value. The new “Yoicard” is an example of this. Besides having highly advantageous financial conditions, it allows customers to get phones with very favourable conditions, and even for free,” says Meinrad Spenger, CEO of the MASMOVIL Group.
