Angry Birds Credit Cards Coming Soon

If you’re looking for a gift for someone who has all of the Angry Birds plush toys, you’re in luck. The Moscow News is reporting that Promsvyazbank, a Russian bank, is going to partner with Rovio, the developers of the Angry Birds franchise.

These credit cards are due to hit the Russian market on 4 June, and they’ll be the first time that the furious feathered ones and their porky protagonists graced a product in Russia.

The bank is hoping to profit of the use of the cards, not from charging their customers fees. “We hope that customers will actively use this ‘plastic’ to pay for goods and services,” RBK Daily quoted Pyatkov as saying earlier this week. “For the bank this is quite an attractive segment, which we will be able to offer not only a card, but also other products such as loans and deposits,” he added.
