Japan Operations

Credit Card Business

Efforts to Increase Cardholders

Using our nationwide sales network, we are actively working to increase cardholder numbers and develop new co-branded cards with affiliated merchants. As of March 31, 2013, our cardholders numbered 31.85 million, led by AEON Card. Also, focusing on the issuance of co-branded cards in cooperation with industry-leading companies, we are working to aggressively broaden our cardholder base, centering our efforts on male customers and a younger age-group.

Efforts to Increase Cardholders


We provide cardholders with numerous incentives, ranging from discounts to an enhanced point system. We broke new ground by extending our no annual fee policy to all the cards that we issue, including the AEON Gold Card, the first gold card in Japan without an annual fee, and our electric toll collection (ETC) cards. As well as enhancing the Tokimeki Point Club program, which offers cardholders bonus points when they shop, we have gone to great lengths to raise the number of affiliated merchants. These include utilities companies and,- Japan Broadcasting Corporation (NHK),both of which register cardholder details for the settlement of monthly bills by credit card.

Banking business

Moreover, in addition to those inside the AEON shopping malls all over the country, AEON bank's ATMs are installed in MINISTOPs, stations, airports, etc., and compatible for various cards issued by partnered financial institutions.

Since then, the Company has actively expanded the cardholder base for WAON-compatible credit cards, including the AEON JMB CARD. At the same time, we have entered into business alliances with third parties to spread the use of WAON and gone to great lengths to raise the number of affiliated merchants who accept WAON. Through these activities, we are working to develop WAON into a regional currency. As of March 31, 2013, the number of WAON-affiliated merchants totaled 160,000 nationwide, with the total number of WAON-compatible credit cards issued reaching 31.8 million. As a result, the total value of e-money transactions using WAON-compatible credit cards, the AEON SUICA CARD and the AEON iD CREDIT CARD payment function for mobile phones has significantly grown, reaching 1,311.3billion yen.
