How you benefit

Earn AB Plus points

The AB Plus MasterCard Prepaid Card with limited transaction limits was created in cooperation with the AB Vassilopoulos supermarkets and offers a reward programme, linked to the AB Plus loyalty card.

When you use your card to shop in Greece and abroad or to carry out remote transactions, you automatically collect points, which are added to the points you collect through your AB Plus loyalty card. You earn double the points* when you shop at AB Vassilopoulos supermarkets with your AB Plus loyalty card.

Every time you use your AB Plus MasterCard Prepaid Card you earn:

  • 1 AB Plus point for every €3 you spend at AB supermarkets
  • 1 AB Plus point for every €10 you spend at any other store
  • 100 AB Plus welcome points the first time you shop

Find here how to earn points by opening a time deposit.


Each time you collect 200 points you automatically win an AB Plus discount voucher for €6 redeemable at AB supermarkets.

Points are collected only when you use your card to shop. Cash advances at ATMs, card loading and unloading fees and payment of taxes are excluded.

Welcome points are credited only once per customer, regardless of the number of AB Plus prepaid cards s/he has issued.

* Double points are not available for products on special or other promotional campaigns.



A simple example!

When you spend €180 at AB Vassilopoulos and another €100 at any other business using your AB Plus MasterCard Prepaid Card, you collect:

Purchase amount AB Plus Loyalty Card

€180 at AB Vassilopoulos
 
60 points
 
60 points
 

130 points  

€100 at any other business
 
   -

This way you collect 130 AB Plus points instead of just 60 points you would have collected if you just used your AB Plus loyalty card.

So use your AB Plus MasterCard Prepaid Card every time you shop to win AB Plus discount vouchers for €6.

Versatility & worldwide acceptance

Your AB Plus MasterCard Prepaid Card is reloadable. You can load it with cash as often as you wish. Use it for transactions until you have used up the available balance. Its maximum load limit is €2,500 per day and the maximum balance on the card is €10,000.

Issued in plastic form, the card is suitable both for remote transactions (online or over the phone) and for shopping and transactions wherever MasterCard is accepted, in Greece and abroad. The AB Plus MasterCard Prepaid Card also accepts refunds if you need to return products you have bought using it. Plus, you can use the card to withdraw cash from ATMs.


Chip & PIN and  Contactless transactions

The AB Plus MasterCard Prepaid Card incorporates Chip & PIN and the new Contactless technology for contactless transactions.
With  contactless technology, you can carry out secure, convenient and fast transactions at all points of sale displaying the relevant logo, without the card ever leaving your hand.



Monthly budget & Security

The AB Plus MasterCard Prepaid Card is ideal for keeping track of your expenses and budget. It does not allow you to spend more than the amount you have budgeted. For example, you can load it weekly or monthly with the amount you have budgeted for your supermarket and household expenses. Each transaction amount is instantly subtracted from the available balance on your card. No interest is charged to any of the transactions. This way you cannot lose track of your expenses, while you also earn AB Plus points.

To use the card for your transactions, you must first load it with the amount you wish to spend. This way, you get to determine the balance of your card at any given moment. This protects your card against fraudulent use and gives you peace of mind.
