    I applied in late Feb, so I probably got the worst of their changing T&Cs. At first I was upset and decided to switch all my money out (it was a principles thing; I felt cheated after going the extra mile to get GIRO/salary crediting done, etc). Here's where it gets bad: When I tried to use their app to transfer my money out, I realised you can't add payees via your phone? So I used Safari and.. for some reason, the OTP would not work out. Sure. So I went down to the bank, and tapped the "Transfer to other bank" option, only to get an error message. Their branch officer reassured me that this was poor UX because even DBS wouldn't allow that, at which point I was distracted by why they would even put a button that doesn't work in their ATM.. but.. friends... pls remember that you can actually make inter bank transfers via the ATM. All in all the worst experience ever. I haven't listed all the sordid details of their crappy app experience (inaccurate use of language and poor use of colour, resulting in a lot of efficiency and confusion). I think it's a blessing in disguise that my telco rejected my GIRO application (wrong account number filled), and Maybank rejected my credit card application (it's okay guys, the card proposition is good, but I value sanity over miles).

    This is especially good for if you prefer to earn miles from their credit card. I spend a minimum $500 monthly with Maybank Horizon Visa Signature Card and able to earn miles with 3% interest.

    3% interest! Personally my account of choice over UOB ONE, DBS multiplier etc. Need to meet 3 out of 9 conditions. Just credit salary, $500 spend on credit card and $300 GIRO payment every month ( I use GIRO for IRAS and Utilities). Also possible to optimise further by combining with UOB ONE account for high spenders

    I have been using both OCBC 360 and SCB Bonus $saver but have switched from those to Maybank Saveup for several reasons: (1) the interest is attractive (up to 3%); (2) Maybank Platinum Visa card has no annual fee to deal it - big deal for me; (3) min. amount to be kept in the account is $1K versus $3K for the other 2; (4) no cheque book issued; (5) Debit mastercard & internet banking token is issued on the same day of account opening - that is so efficient! (6) i just need 1 giro transaction of at least $300 to hit one of the hurdles - this means i can leave the other giros for other hurdle savings account. So if you haven't consider Maybank Saveup do give it a serious look.

    same here! We use Maybank SaveUp for their 3% interest - very competitive rate + $50k insurance! We also use it for savings and not so much for transactions, so I'm ok with the user interface & lack of ATMs. Plus, their Maybank Platinum Visa Card has no annual fee, provided there is at least 1 transaction every quarter, and gives 3.33% cashback on almost any category of $300 spending - fuss-free! Agree that Maybank Saveup is really underrated, in fact, I had moved over from OCBC 360 to Maybank Saveup. For the same criteria Salary , Spending & GIRO: from 1.85% to 3% - straightforward decision ;) For daily transactions we use UOB One (3.33%). We get good interest with this combi :)
