Pay now with a safe credit card that reports your expenses via sms*
Who can do without a credit card these days? Useful for both small and big purchases, indispensable when travelling and safe thanks to the pin code. But next to this ease of payment, the BASE MasterCard has much more to offer. Paying with your BASE Mastercard instead of other cards, grants you free minutes.
The BASE Mastercard is a safe payment method that is available for prepaid as well as postpaid customers. Be advised that KPN/BASE deems it important to protect its customers from important debts, your request will only be accepted if you have a stable income and you have sufficient income to be able to reimburse the purchases made via your BASE Mastercard on a monthly basis.
A BASE MasterCard is accepted all over the world. It may look like the card that is issued by your bank but it comes with a host of attractive extras which you will not find anywhere else:
Your BASE MasterCard is free
There is no charge for your card during the first year**. You will not be charged during the following years providing that you spend at least € 2,000 a year with your card. If you do not spend € 2,000 a year, then you will have to pay the annual € 15 fee for your BASE MasterCard.
You receive free minutes for BASE to BASE calls
For every purchase with your BASE MasterCard you will receive free minutes***, as long as the total amount of your purchases during the previous month was at least € 10. You can use the free minutes yourself or give them to a beneficiary by linking his or her BASE mobile phone number to your BASE MasterCard. You will also receive additional minutes for top-ups (prepaid) or when paying a postpaid invoice with your BASE MasterCard.
