Maybank Treats Points Total Tally Error In Your Maybank2U Account

INTRODUCTION

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.
