Maybank cards don’t really get a lot of love around these parts, but I’ve been tipped off as to an ongoing offer that might be worth some attention.
The Maybank Horizon Visa Signature card is offering 3.2 miles per $1 spent on dining, petrol, taxi and bookings at Agoda.com/Horizon.
You normally earn 1 TREATS point per S$1 of spend (0.4 miles). You get a bonus of 7 TREATS points (2.8 miles) when you spend on the aforementioned categories.
The T&C, which can be found here, say this is subject to a minimum monthly spend of S$300 and the bonus points are capped at 30,000 TREATS points per month, meaning you max this out at S$4,285 of spending. Interestingly, Maybank includes GrabTaxi as part of taxi transactions but not Uber. There is no indication as to whether this is a limited time promotion or not.
That said, you could always use your HSBC Advance/DBS Woman’s World card for Uber/Grab to get 4 miles per $1, and for regular taxis you could use Paypass or Dash to get 4 miles per $1. I suppose the real benefit here is for petrol payments, where I’m struggling to think of any card that will give you a bonus (Samsung Pay isn’t offered at gas stations is it?)
You can also use your Maybank Horizon card to get 2 miles per $1 on air tickets and overseas spend.
So file this under “good to know” but not essential to jump on, if you’re not already using Maybank cards.
