      Maybank Family & Friends Card

      [Useful For...] we consolidate our expenses so it was easy to hit the min. monthly spend of $800. Overview of the expenses we charge to the card Groceries: NTUC, Sheng Siong, Cold Storage, Redmart Dining & Food Delivery: restaurants and foodpanda/deliveroo Transport: grab, petrol Telco and Streaming: phone bills, netflix, disney+, hbo The max cashback is $125 per calendar month, with a cap of $25 per category. What i like is that you can choose five categories, out of the 8, for your cashback to be computed (of course, once selected, the selection is fixed for 1 year) [Card Hacks] 1. Maybank is not popularly used for petrol. We still use this card because we pay via the CaltexGo app instead of via the cashier counter, thereby getting a direct 14% (based on the mastercard promotion they have on the app). Coupled with this 8% cashback, that is still quite decent petrol savings we get! 2. just make sure you don't spend more than $312.50 per category every month because of the category cap. Anything beyond, you get a measly 0.3% cashback :(

      What are your thoughts?

      I am using this credit card but the 8% rebates under the preferred categories are subject to MCC (merchant category code) being posted by merchant. If the MCC is not recognised by Maybank, we will not earn the 8% rebates under the preferred categories. For example purchases from Welcia-BHG, tCMshop.sg are not recognised under the "Pharmacy & Wellness" category due to the MCC being used by the merchants. Similarly, if we shop for pet food via shopee, such expenses are not recognised under Retail & Pets category. Also, we may not earn the 8% rebate under Online Fashion if the merchants use a different MCC that is not recognised by Maybank. Payments made via paypal, shopee, lazada, etsy.com may not earn the 8% rebates under the preferred category. So these expenses will then be clubbed under "Other spending" that may earn you 0.3%. It is not practical for users of the credit card to ask every merchant what MCC they will use for billing purpose before we confirm the transaction, yes??

      [Cashback Card] Useful card if you spend a lot on grocery. The qualifying threshold is reasonable (min $800 spend). However, I minus 1 star as rail hailing and online shopping platform spend (shopee/lazada) is not included in the cashback category. Don don donki is included so I have been using it exclusively with don don donki.

      The strategy for this card is to consolidate bills from telco, food delivery, groceries. $800 minimum spending for 8% rebate, that will be more than the POSB 5% rebate for groceries. Great also if you use for transport such as bus/MRT and grab. All these can be included into the minimum spending.

      This is really quite a good card to get for the cashback. Its not that hard to hit the categories, especially for groceries. ALL groceries at major supermarkets can already, meaning you NTUC, Sheng Shiong and Giant. If you like me, don't own a car, I suppose the Grab trips will help you very easily hit their cashback requirements.

      [Promotions and Perks] Maybank often throws VERY generous ad hoc promotions. I am not complaining as I enjoyed several of them. It helps that it is easy to meet the promo requirements to redeem the prize ;) [Cashback Card] Simple cashback card for groceries (offline n online!) and telco (bills bills bills)
