In a rather interesting move, Grab Malaysia has announced that it will no longer provide GrabRewards Points to cash-based transactions. According to its official website, it was done in parallel with the government’s move to promote the usage of e-wallet through the e-Tunai Rakyat program.
In case you missed the news, GrabPay is one of three official e-wallets chosen for the program. In an effort to further attract users to redeem the RM 30 e-Tunai Rakyat allocation through its platform, Grab has offered additional vouchers and discounts with value of up to RM 2,970.
As for the new directive for GrabRewards, it will take place starting from 15 March 2020. From that point onwards, only transactions that are performed with GrabPay e-wallet as well as credit and debit cards would be eligible for GrabRewards Points.
At the same time, Grab Malaysia has also extended the GrabPay Year End Bonus Points promotion which offered 3x GrabRewards Points for GrabPay transactions to give users additional reason to embrace its e-wallet. For further information, check out Grab Malaysia’s official website.
