CAMPAIGN-I: News in brief

Mviva, the pan-European wireless internet portal, is launching a

credit card through its parent company, The Carphone Warehouse.

Customers can apply for the card, which is being issued through Halifax

Card Services, at Carphone Warehouse outlets via both companies'

websites or via a freephone number. The card offers customers 5 per cent

cashback on all Carphone Warehouse purchases and up to 1 per cent

elsewhere. The card also offers customers an online guarantee against

fraud. The move makes Mviva the first wireless portal to enter the

credit card market.
