Dhaka, Bangladesh, 16 May 2018 Mastercard today announced the launch of an exciting BOGO (Buy-One-Get-One) Iftar offer for Mastercard cardholders just ahead of the Holy Month of Ramadan. The offer, which commences on 17 May 2018 and ends on 16 June 2018, aims to accelerate the adoption of cashless payments by rewarding cardholders when they dine out during the Iftar period.

Commenting on the launch, Syed Mohammad Kamal, Country Manager, Bangladesh, Mastercard said, “During Ramadan, people tend to visit hotels, restaurants and eateries a lot more for Iftar. With this insight in mind, Mastercard is delighted to launch this campaign, and provide cardholders with unique dining experiences. Cardholders will be able to avail attractive offers at partnering hotels and restaurants and continue to enjoy a safe, secure and convenient payments experience. This BOGO campaign is part of Mastercard’s ongoing commitment to accelerate Bangladesh’s transition towards a less-cash economy and propel the adoption of cashless payments in the market.”
