Credit cards can be a convenient way to get those financial obligations out of the way, but consumers are requesting more from their cards than merely just a facility. Banks are required to differentiate themselves from their competitors in order to remain relevant. This is good news for the client, as it gives them access to a multitude of offers that will make them a little easier to manage. The Banco do Brasil Credit Cards offer just this: a multitude of offers. This review takes a look at these offers to see how they compare to others around the world.

Take a look at how this range compares to that of Santander UK's credit card range. 

About Banco do Brasil

The early 1800s saw the rise of this establishment as it was founded by a man later crowned the king of Portugal. The need of a financial institution was critical at that stage in order to improve financial stability within Brazil and eventually its ties with financial institutions across the world. Today, it has weathered a number of storms and still remains one of the biggest banks in the world. A strong focus on modern banking techniques allows it to retain market share and the bank is now rated as the second largest bank in Brazil based on asset value.

Critical Reviews Rating Banco do Brasil Credit Cards – 9 of 10

Screenshot of Bancod do Brasil Special Offers on Credit Cards

At first sight, this is the ideal mix of credit cards as it just provides so many options. Right from store cards through to prepaid options and more. There is just one thing that we’ve noticed with this range that brings it down slightly. This is that there are no interest-free periods offered as with other major card brands, which could lure customers away from the bank.

Other than that, there should be something for everyone. A perfect score is within grasp for this bank simply by adding a benefit to one of their existing ranges.

A surprising range of credit card options is that of National Bank of Abu Dhabi.
