Collaborating with cloud-based service partners

Digital Campaign Jan 2021 – Jan 2022

A Collaboration For Cardmember Convenience

Virtual, virtual, virtual! The pandemic changed the world as we used to know it, and at JCB we like to make life as flexible and convenient as possible for our Cardmembers. Online has become the way forward more than ever!

JCB and one of our cloud-based storage services partners collaborated on a 12-month-long digital campaign, which unlocked an exclusive discount for JCB Cardmembers when they signed up for the services using their JCB Card.

The Fine Print

  • Offer Available To JCB Cardmember Regions: Japan, Thailand and Taiwan
  • Exclusive Sign-Up Discount: 30% off when using a JCB card

JCB Added Value

This campaign featured on JCB websites, including MyJCB for Japanese JCB Cardmembers only, Taiwan (Special Offers) and Thailand (Special Offers).

The advertisement was further featured in JCB’s February 2021 “JCB The Premium“ Magazine for Gold cardmembers in Japan.

The Results

Across JCB’s Japanese, Taiwanese, and Thai websites where the special offer was featured, the campaign received 114,848 page views from January 2021 to December 2021. The campaign was also featured in “JCB The Premium”, a magazine seen by approximately 10 million readers.
