The ‘Impossible Deals’ will be available to participants on a first-come-first-served basis.
Speaking at the launch of the promotion, Karim Beg, Head of Marketing at Visa Inc. MENA, said: “Visa returns to partner with DSF for yet another season of fun, shopping and unbelievable deals. Visa has been DSF’s official payments partner since the shopping festival’s inception in 1996. We are delighted to continue our relationship with what has evolved to become a powerful brand locally and globally – with a thrilling new concept to reward Visa cardholders from Pakistan who will be traveling to Dubai for DSF.”
“Given that consumers are always looking for the best deals, Visa and DSF have come together to create just that – impossible deals on a range of high-end products, including luxury cars, fashion brands, gadgets, hotel stays, and entertainment. The idea is to make DSF a special occasion for everyone and give visiting participants from Pakistan a chance to own something they aspired to have at a fraction of the cost.”
“Visa has been working in line with the vision of DSF to raise the profile of Dubai as a favored international shopping destination and has conceptualized this exciting campaign to celebrate 21 years of partnership with DSF. The promotion this year targets Visa cardholders 21 years and older and across all backgrounds, looking for exciting deals during Dubai’s busiest shopping period,” added Beg.
