German customers snapping up Oktoberfest bank cards
German-based HypoVereinsbank (HVB) has issued ten special EC chip cards featuring motifs in honour of the city of Munich’s 850th anniversary.
Smart card company Giesecke & Devrient has produced EC cards with motifs related to Munich.
More than 7,500 HVB customers have already ordered one of the ten picture cards in the first month of the offer. Their favorites so far have been the two panoramic views of the city and, in third place, a picture celebrating the famous Oktoberfest.
The bank says the Oktoberfest card is in great demand not only by customers in Munich but throughout Germany.
HVB and G&D, both Munich-based companies, are sponsoring the city’s 850-year celebrations, and HVB is even a PremiumPartner.
