Banco Nacional has come out with an unusual promotion for today, Nov. 11, 2011. The bank is prepared to give credit card users 11 percent cash back up to 111,000 colons, about $219. The maximum amount would be returned on a transaction or transactions totaling just over 1 million colons or about $2,000.
But readers should not head for the meat counter or the liquor shelves. The bank ruled out purchases made at service stations and supermarkets, according to its announcement.
The promotion also does not seem to apply to debit cards, only credit cards.
