RCBC Bankard Diamond Mastercard: The Credit Card That Feeds


RCBC Bankard has relaunched the Diamond Platinum Mastercard and its partnership with Gawad Kalinga's "Kusina ng Kalinga" gives the cardholders the opportunity to feed a child and make a difference. Through the Diamond Cares Program, 20 centavos is automatically donated to Kusina ng Kalinga for every P100 spent using the card.

Gawad Kalinga is very much aware of the hunger and malnutrition problems of children studying in public schools all over the country. Through Kusina ng Kalinga, volunteers can prepare, cook, pack at the satellite kitchens and distribute nutritious food to public school children.

Gawad Kalinga Founder Mr. Antonio Meloto
"Ending hunger for Filipino children in public schools is an important step in ending poverty in the Philippines. The support of RCBC Bankard for the Gawad Kalinga's Kusina ng Kalinga is essential to the achievement of our goal to provide meals for one hundred thousand public school students daily.", says Gawad Kalinga Founder Antonio Meloto.

"We believe in Kusina ng Kalinga's noble purpose. We hope that our cardholders will prefer to use their RCBC Bankard Diamond Platinum Mastercard to help support the fight against hunger, and to help the less fortunate children reach their full potential.", added Angela Mirasol, RCBC Bankard Services Corporation First Vice-President and Marketing Group Head.

Mr. Simon Calasanz, President and CEO of RCBC Bankard Services
"As we relaunch the RCBC Bankard Diamond Platinum Mastercard we acknowledge that we, along with our cardholders can make a difference.", said Simon Calasanz, President and CEO of RCBC Bankard Services Corporation. "Lives will be better, both for our cardholders, and for the children who will have a better future because we all cared.", Simon concluded.

The RCBC Bankard Diamond Platinum Mastercard has enhanced features giving its cardholders greater value aside from the Kusina ng Kalinga beneficiary of the Diamond Cares Program, which is a significant component of the relaunched credit card.

Other feature includes a proprietary budget management tool, Spend Monitor, which allows cardholders to manage their finances better by letting them set their own budget. Cardholders are notified once they reach their budget. It also has a top-of-the-line Travel Privileges including complimentary access to Miascor lounge, free travel insurance and purchase protection, plus a bonus travel limit that cardholders can request during their travel. 

RCBC Bankard Diamond Platinum Mastercard cardholders also enjoy more secure transactions with the EMV Chip technology, and a generous and flexible Rewards Program where they can choose to exchange their rewards points for shopping vouchers or have the peso equivalent of their points used as payment. They can also get cash rebates or free flights by enrolling in either the Unlimited Cash Rebate Program or the Air Miles Program.

The relaunch of the RCBC Bankard Diamond Platinum Mastercard last November 24, 2016 was held at the Executive Lounge of RCBC Plaza in Makati. Present during the event were RCBC Chairperson  Helen Y. Dee, RCBC President and CEO Gil A. Buenaventura, RBSC President and CEO Simon Calasanz, RBSC Vice President and Marketing Group Head Angela Mirasol, and Gawad Kalinga Founder Tony Meloto.
