Our KeyCards are Retiring…

And that means there’s more to come for you!

Thanks to you KeyCard, Jamaica’s first credit card, is in many wallets and is accepted at over 9,000 NCB merchants across the island. In 1981, KeyCard launched Jamaicans beyond the limits of cash and into the age of plastic. It serves as a homegrown hero, providing greater access to lines of credit and additional benefits for many Jamaicans.

Born out of innovation, KeyCard has enabled more purchasing power for consumers and businesses and we celebrate its impact on our way of life.

While KeyCard remains among your favourite local cards, we’ve heard your call for online and in-store international shopping and we’re answering it. We’re bringing you Tap & Go technology, international credit and prepaid card options and retiring our KeyCard suite which will happen on a phased basis.
