Get busy living in style this summer with BlueBean!
The BlueBean credit card from Standard Bank enables cardholders to Get busy living by offering a wide range of life-enhancing special deals and value-added services. It’s also the one and only credit card brand in South Africa that gives cardholders the freedom to design their own credit cards!
“Card personalisation allows cardholders the opportunity to define the Get busy living message according to their personal experiences and preferences,” says Alicia-Ann Raynard, the Head of BlueBean at Standard Bank. “In a world of bland conformity and mass-production, it’s an industry game-changer that transforms a traditional financial services product into a lifestyle enabler and brand.” Special deals on coffee and wine, as well as technology bundles and travel packages are regularly featured.
Value-added services are also available and include a Concierge and Take Me Home cab service. Health Assist, Home Assist, Roadside Assist and Vehicle Licence Renewal Assist ensure added convenience and peace of mind for cardholders who embrace the Get busy living proposition.
When applying, cardholders can choose an image from BlueBean’s online library, where there are several Get busy living galleries, such as Art, Fun, Landscapes, Love, Nature & Animals, South Africa, Sports, Sunsets and Wonders of the World to name a few. Alternately, personal images can be uploaded. Firm favourites are family, friends, pets and special memories of landmark birthdays, holidays and weddings.
Fashionistas who want to Get busy living in style this summer can browse BlueBean’s fashion-forward galleries of Colours, Patterns, Textures and more. “To make a statement and turn heads, a personalised BlueBean credit card is this season’s must-have accessory,” says Alicia-Ann. “And there’s an image for every style: from organic and vintage to bling and bold.”
A quick search through BlueBean’s online library will reveal black and white asymmetrical stripes and monochromatic geometrics that draw influence from the Japanese art of origami. For a more glammed-up look, the metallics story is pure summer shimmer: glitter, sequins and twinkling orbs add holiday sparkle to every occasion. There are also burnished gold accessories that embrace the Aztec trend, a swatch of quilted leather that oozes Chanel’s trademark look, and an ornate gem-encrusted timepiece that is vintage Hollywood.
Artfully choreographed and beautifully styled models celebrate Afro-chic and red carpet pizzazz. Chunky zippers, hand-stitched leather, raw linen, studded denim, psychedelic 60s patterns and romantic pastels in soft shades of macaroon sweetness are a contemporary twist.
To qualify for a BlueBean credit card, an applicant must be a South African resident of 18 years or older and have a minimum monthly income of R4 000.
