As a leading Swiss chain of department stores with great locations around Switzerland, Globus offers a first-class shopping experience with its range of exclusive premium and luxury brands as well as the latest trends in fashion, beauty, living and lifestyle. In the Globus ★★★delicatessa customers will also find great food and fresh products of the highest quality.

Within the framework of this new partnership, American Express Platinum Cardholders can now enjoy CHF 100 on their card per year in Globus Platinum credit when making a purchase for at least CHF 300. In addition, holders of an American Express Platinum principal card are eligible for Globus Pluscard Platinum membership and the associated benefits at Globus, such as 10% welcome discount, a 2% loyalty bonus for every purchase at Globus, travel deals all over the globe and many more exclusive benefits.

For Guido Müller, CEO of Swisscard AECS GmbH, partnering with Globus was the logical next step: "We as Swisscard are always striving to continuously improve the services and benefits we offer our American Express members. Our goal is to give them the best experiences every day. We are therefore delighted to be expanding our network with Globus, an established and customer oriented brand that shares our ambitions." For his part, Globus CEO Franco Savastano adds: "Swisscard and Globus share the same commitment to creating a unique customer experience. We are glad to combine the numerous benefits we offer holders of an American Express Platinum Card with this new partnership and thereby create even more unique advantages for them in shopping and leisure in the future."
