Maybank credit cards offering “GST-free shopping” promotion

Last Updated:

Get a 7% cash rebate on your Maybank credit cards when you spend at selected retail merchants in July.

From 3-31 July 2020, Maybank credit card members can enjoy “GST-free shopping”, via a 7% cash rebate on their registered Maybank card. 

This applies to selected transactions in physical retail stores, and stacks with existing Maybank card benefits. 

How Maybank’s “GST-free shopping” works

Cardholders first need to register their Maybank credit card via the Maybank TREATS SG mobile app. This can be done by navigating to Privileges–> Coupon–> 7% Cash Rebate Promotion

What Maybank cards can I use for shopping?

Since this is effectively an offline retail shopping campaign, the following cards are your best bets for picking up some miles along the way.

Maybank Visa Infinite1.2 mpd 
Maybank World Mastercard4 mpdClub21 boutiques only, otherwise 0.4 mpd

Conclusion

Unlike the “stay home” promotions that other banks have been offering over the past few months, this is a decidedly “get out” campaign. You’ll need to spend in physical retail stores to be eligible, so I suppose it’s targeted at those with revenge spending on their minds. 

Be sure to register your card ASAP if you intend to take part.
