It was 1992 when I got my first Citibank credit card and what came to my mind then was to purchase a refrigerator as our first appliances as husband and wife.  We were drained with the cost of our wedding expenses on that month of November and we promise to ourselves that once we get our 13th month pay for December, we will pay it in full.

How time flies as I recall it as unforgettable story for a newly wed like us.

It was really a great privilege to join with them at Fairmont, Makati as Citibank card celebrate unforgettable journey throughout these years.

It was 1990 when Citi Philippines introduced the Citibank MasterCard, marking the global bank’s entry into the Philippine credit card market.  Citi was also credited for changing the payment landscape, when it lowered the minimum income requirement to own a credit card, and turned what was once a financial tool only for the elite, into a payment product that empowered middle income Filipino cardholders.

As shared by CEO Batara Sianturi:

“We are extremely proud of our legacy of success here in the Philippines, particularly in our consumer banking business led by our credit cards.  As the world’s largest issuer of credit cards, we bring our experience and expertise across the globe in providing and anticipating the credit payment needs of our clients here in the country with the help of our partners like MasterCard.”

As of today, Citi remains the acknowledged industry leader, with an enviable track record of innovations and best-in-market offers and promotions, making many unforgettable stories possible for its Filipino customers.
