Citibank’s Citi Commerce Solutions division has inked a multi-year agreement with ConocoPhillips to provide a full-service private label credit card program for the Conoco, Phillips 66 and Union 76 gasoline credit cards. The ConocoPhillips gas card program currently has 7.2 million cardholders, according to CardData ([www.carddata.com]). Citibank currently issues the “Conoco MasterCard” and “Phillips 66 MasterCard.” ConocoPhillips says its decision to switch its private label cards to an outside card issuer was based on business synergies created by its merger last August. Citi says it will take over the private label cards on July 1st. ConocoPhillips is the third largest integrated energy company in the USA and has 17,000 service stations.
