The card can also be used for e-commerce including PayPal. It also offers a host of platinum privileges from Maybank as well as MasterCard. Maybankard MasterCard Platinum Debit cardholders are also offered 1 (one) TreatsPoints for every RM3 spend.
One of the winners, Wendy Tan, a Maybank customer for 20 years from Kuala Lumpur, said she had decided to change to the MasterCard Platinum Debit as it serves her needs. “I have only recently started using the Maybankard MasterCard Platinum Debit card as an alternative to using cash for purchases that accepts debit cards as payment. I did not realise I won but the reward is a pleasant surprise and I look forward to making the trip with my husband to Singapore,” she said.
