German mobile bank N26 has launched a NFC-enabled Mastercard debit card, aimed at ‘the needs of digital customers’, which comes along with an exclusive partner program.
The N26 Metal card comes with dedicated customer service, worldwide travel insurance, and no additional fees when withdrawing money abroad. Customers with the card will have access to a personalised section of the N26 app where they can take advantage of exclusive partnerships.
“N26 Metal is more than just a premium banking product, it’s a card for today’s digital lifestyle,” said Valentin Stalf, founder and CEO of N26. “By partnering with the best brands, we go beyond providing purely financial products and give our customers access to the best products and services in a few taps within the N26 app.”
The first partner onboard is collaborative workspace company WeWork. Through the partnership, N26 Metal customers will be able to earn credits to reserve workspaces and conference rooms in WeWork locations around the world.
The N26 Metal card will be available to selected N26 Black customers in Germany, France, Italy, and Austria from 14 December. The card will officially rollout in early 2018. N26 recently announced it would enter both the UK and US market by mid-2018, so the Metal card can also be expected to land in those markets at launch.
