  • It also allows cash withdrawals on credit at ATMs with the same deferrals.
  • The registration fee is free and does not apply maintenance fees if the account holder carries out one deferred payment transaction every year.
  • The card allows deferring those transactions, both purchases and withdrawals, the amount of which ranges between 100 and 1,000 euros

Bankia launches, together with MasterCard, the first debit card in Spain that allows its holder, if he/she so wishes, to pay purchases on debit or postpone purchase payment to three, six or ten months, choosing the most convenient period on each occasion.

This card, commercially known as the Dupla Card, also allows withdrawals on debit or credit at ATMs, with the same deferrals.

“We want to offer our card customers the option to opt for a new product that retains all the functionalities of their traditional debit cards, but adds a number of additional advantages, typical of credit cards, providing it with great flexibility”, says Carlos Mier, Bankia's Director of Cards and Issuing Business.

The registration fee for the Dupla Card is free of charge. In addition, no maintenance fee applies if the holder carries out a deferred transaction every year.

The card allows for the deferral of both purchases and withdrawals, the amount of which ranges between 100 and 1,000 euros. The customer may consult their deferred transactions through the ATM, at ‘Bankia on line’ or through the Bankia App.

The Dupla card can also be used to pay through a mobile phone, through Bankia Wallet and the wallets of the main Xpay, in both cases always on debit.

Accident insurance and discounts at petrol stations

Dupla Card users will have free Accident Insurance of up to 100,000 euros with Mapfre, as well as discounts at petrol stations: 3% at Shell and 2% at Galp.

All account holders may make 4 free debit withdrawals, per month, at Euro6000 and Banco Sabadell ATMs. Logically, all withdrawals made at Bankia ATMs will also be free of charge.

Bankia currently has over 9 million cards, both debit and credit, which is allowing it to increase its card turnover in shops above 14%, 25% in online transactions.
