Most if not all of you who have been following me for years would hold the fantastic FREE FOR LIFE without any conditions Maybank 2 Gold/Platinum Cards…. if not, you cannot be considered my die hard follower. Why? FREE FOR LIFE and you don’t want, you must be freaking rich or nuts, hahaha…. unless you can’t qualify for it, that’s a different story.
The Maybank 2 Cards Gold/Platinum guarantees you 5% cash back for any transactions on weekends including for Government, Petrol and Utilities! However, the cash back is capped at RM50 per month based on RM1K spending for weekends per month.
So, for those of you who do spend substantially more than RM1K per month on weekends, you would also hold the wonderful Maybank 2 Cards Premier so that you can fly for FREE.
Most of you my Die Hard Followers/Disciples would end up holding multiple Maybank Credit Cards simply because Maybank’s credit cards are the best for many different categories. If you refer to My Readers’ Choice Award For The Top 5 Credit Cards in Malaysia, 3 of the Top 5 Credit Cards in Malaysia are from Maybank.

Online Banking and Mobile Apps
For years I have been telling you guys to be super kiasu when it comes to online banking matters. I have reiterated many times that I have separate computers for different purposes, i.e. one computer and iPad for surfing the internet and 2 other computers (one in KL and one in Melbourne) purely for internet banking and nothing else. Not only that, I DO NOT perform any online banking with my mobile phone.
Many of you use your Smartphone(s) to surf the internet. However, if you are using your smartphone for online banking, I guess you are not a kiasu person and have not heard that Smartphones and Mac Books are also prone to virus attacks. Moreover, if you connect to a public wi-fi, all your details can be compromised.
Then again, our home Wi-fi can also easily be hacked where it is damn easy to get the password to connect to your home wi-fi. Nothing is safe nor private nowadays with the internet.
I hate to use Apps on the Smartphone as they are prone to bugs. Therefore, I do not log in to any of my Banking Accounts via Smartphone.
I tell you, you should never change/modify your flight details with AirAsia App if you are just purely checking out the prices and have no intention to modify your flight details. All I will say is this – if you can use desktop to perform something, DO NOT USE APPs.
Maybank2U New Interface Is Also Full Of Bugs
Anyway, one of my project members messaged me to inform that his Treats Points do not tally when he added up all his Treats Points when he used Maybank2U NEW Interface, i.e. not App. See image below:
So, he emailed Maybank Customer Service and below is the reply he received:
As you can observe from above, NEW is not necessarily good. Don’t Fix It If It Is Not Broken……… Always you the Classic Maybank2U.
I tell you, you must not log in to your banking account via your smartphone because it will become a habit and when you receive fake SMS or Email or even WhatsApp, you would then automatically click on the link to a phishing site and end up with a big headache. Want to be kiasu, be kisau to the max and don’t compromise on security matters just because you are lazy to log in to your computer dedicated purely for internet banking.
