I was surprised to hear this news as I actually overheard from a staff who was getting people to sign up for credit cards and we knew each other and met a couple of times, I thought the news may be wrong but it was indeed so correct. I am actually quite disappointed with this news as one of the reasons why I actually signed up for the card was because the points were timeless and there was only Citibank or Maybank to choose from, I remember when Citibank was the only one and I signed up with them and only later on Maybank joined the timeless points, then only I decided to get their card. It is already difficult enough to gather enough points as how much can you spend within 3 years to get a proper gift to redeem? I don’t think their Treatsfair will be so popular anymore in the future as well. And of course a lot of the people would just move to Citibank although Citibank’s points will get more expensive. Oh yes, one more thing, say bye bye to Maybank’s RM1 = 200 points and say hello to RM1 = 250 points . Talk about inflation!!
Sad but true, tell me how you feel about it because it’s a sad day because I have to spend all my points within the next 3 years… tell me how you feel by dropping a comment below.
