The effort has brought more than 500,000 newly issued card members. In line with SCB's strategy focusing on partnership banking and expanding its customer base, this year SCB collaborated with JCB, Japan's top player in payment services, to introduce the "SCB JCB PLATINUM Credit Card" under a "Passport of Trendy Asian Lifestyles" concept. The new card seeks to attract first jobbers who, according to behavioral research, tend to adopt trends from abroad, particularly the trendy Asian lifestyle, and who prefer traveling to five popular Asian tourist destinations: Japan, South Korea, Hong Kong, Singapore, and Taiwan. These young people are also fond of food and famous brands from Japan. Moreover, SCB is also focusing on offering a "customer experience" with financial products and services designed to create new experiences for the Bank's customers. To increase familiarity with digital services, the SCB JCB PLATINUM credit card will be SCB's first card allowing simple application of only a few steps via digital channels on the SCB EASY Application throughout the process, increasing convenience and speed for existing SCB's customers using credit cards or other products, including new customers. It is hoped that the SCB JCB PLATINUM credit card will reach the target of 100,000 new cards by year-end 2019, adding to the card's existing 2.4 million customers.

          SCB Marketing Function Executive Vice President Mr. Sutirapan Sakkawatra noted that, "SCB has injected more than 50 million baht to organize a new marketing campaign model aiming to attract the new generation by changing perceptions, primarily through online media. The effort will help in better understanding new consumption behavior. The Bank has also adopted the classic "Music Marketing" concept, which continues to remain popular among teenagers in order to access a new generation of consumers through digital communication platforms such as Joox, LINE TV, Youtube, or Facebook. The campaign also aims to foster engagement and intimate relationships between brands and target groups. The project utilizes famous singer and songwriter heartthrob Thanwa "The Toys" Boonsoongnern, to add color and boost perception for the new generation through an exclusive "Mee Ther Took Wan Kor Oni" single especially produced for the SCB JCB PLATINUM credit card. The song also features DJ Ono and top net idol, Pimtha. The song was inspired by the word "Oni" in Japanese meaning "top-notch" or "ultimate" and rhyming with "Okayni". These two words combine to form the "SCB JCB PLATINUM – Oni with Just One Card for Ultimate Dining, Traveling, Shopping" marketing campaign.
