About Metrobank Card Corporation

Metrobank Card Corporation (A Finance Company) [MCC] was established in August 1985, known then as Unibancard Corporation. Its maiden product was called Unicard, a single currency credit card accepted in key establishments in the Philippines. Over the years, Unicard evolved from a locally accepted card to an internationally recognized credit card when it rode on the MasterCard scheme in 1994 and the Visa scheme in 1998.

In October 2003, Australia New Zealand Bank (ANZ) entered into a joint venture with Metropolitan Bank and Trust Corporation (MBTC) for the cards operation business of MCC. Since then, MCC has already tripled its cardholder base, and has launched a string of new products that offer distinct advantages to its customers, such as special installment plans, unmatched perks and privileges, and invites to exclusive events.
