The Commercial Bank, a private sector bank operating in Qatar, has launched a metal credit card for its Limited Edition customers.

Commercial Bank head of cards and payments Roya Khajeh said: “We believe the high-quality metal card engraved with black and gold card design will appeal to our Limited Edition customers and will indubitably enhance their banking experience, thanks to its state-of-the-art look and feel and worldwide luxurious privileges.”
The card offers a range of benefits to the holders including exclusive access to specific luxury experiences around the world.
It includes Gold membership at Qatar Airways Privilege Club, membership upgrade at Global Hotel Alliance DISCOVERY, among others.
Additionally, the cardholders will receive lounge access with one guest at more than 1,200 airports across the world.
Mastercard general manager for Kuwait and Qatar Somu Roy said: “The market-first Commercial Bank Limited Edition World Elite Mastercard Metal Credit Card takes a fresh and innovative new approach to card payments, making it an appealing and rewarding proposition for the bank’s customers.
“Cardholders can enjoy a wide range of exclusive benefits packaged in a distinctive metallic form with contactless capabilities, seamlessly merging luxury and convenience, a first for the Qatari market.”
