Can I use credit card top up grab wallet to pay insurance policy premiums via mobile AXS?

I would like to maximize my credit card spending, Grabpay and the mobile AXS payment for the payment of my Great Eastern Life Insurance Policy. If I have a 3k payment, can I split this 3k into 3 different credit cards (e.g. uob one top up 1k, ocbc 365 top up 1k, DBS live Fresh top up 1k) to top up the grabpay wallet. After that, use mAXS to pay the policy via the grab wallet. Will this work? Anything that I missed out?

Unfortunately no. Great estern policy only allows you to pay with GE cashflow OCBC card where you can earn 1% cashback.

Well, Grabpay just got deactivated in AXS. However, you can still use your Grabpay Mastercard to pay for your outstanding insurance premium. And yes, you can top up Grabpay using 3 credit cards, and then finally use GPMC to pay the whole bill. Nice breakdown there!

  1. Get a GrabPay MasterCard

  2. Use your different credit card to top up your GrabPay MasterCard

  3. Use your GrabPay Mastercard to pay for the insurance premiums on AXS or SAM machines update GPMC is not usable on AXS machine now

You get credit card points for topping up GrabPay and Grab Reward points for using GrabPayMasterCard!​​​

Grab is not accepted in AXS anymore.

If you happened to have grabpay card(virtual/physical), you can actually schedule the payment via Cardup.co. It charges you 2.25*-2.6% and dont gives grab reward points. However given you get extra 5% via grab from UOB One, you still earn some cashback off.

Use my promo code CHUNCHUANL50 to get $20 off your 1st payment if you are keen to explore!

*2.25% when used promo code GET225, valid until 30/6/2020​​​

No, this is not possible now. Refer to their FAQ: https://help.grab.com/passenger/en-sg/360037884531-I-cant-use-GrabPay-on-AXS

Here is everything about me and what I do best.

As long as you have Grabpay Mastercard (because Grabpay wallet is not deactivated for AXS), yes you can do that.

However, do note that top up to Grabpay wallet is only count towards minimum spending transaction for not eligible for the Cashback components. Only UOB One gives cashback for grab topup transactions.

Yes you can do it today via grab pay method but starting from tomorrow, grabpay will be suspended from the mobile axs app as a payment method

Instead you need to sign up for grabpay MasterCard and then make payment on axs mobile app via the debit card master card route. It was posted in seedly facebook. Do take note

As shared on https://community.whatcard.sg/t/axs-has-for-now-stopped-accepting-grabpay/560, you could consider "paying your AXS bills using your Grabpay Mastercard under “Credit Cards” option of the AXS app."

So you may top up your Grabpay wallet using any of your credit cards, then paying your bills with the Grabpay Mastercard that's linked to your Grabpay wallet.

Update: This is no longer possible, sadly... Could try CardUp instead https://community.whatcard.sg/t/a-workaround-for-paying-bills-with-grabpay-credits/583

No you can no longer do so as grabpay wallet just got deactivated on AXS. You can do so with the grabpay mastercard though!

Yes I believe you can as AXS mobile allows the use of grabpay!
