GRABPay MasterCard

https://theshutterwhale.com/blog/201...southeast-asia

Surprised that nobody started this thread yet.
Seems like grab quietly launch their own virtual card.


Apart from the ability to utilize grabpay balance to pay bill and earn up to 10x reward points per dollar spent, not sure what other advantages are there.

Initial observation:

1. An initial test transaction of RM1 payment resulted in a $0.34 deduction. At first look, the overseas transaction rate does not look fantastic, was hoping that it could rival Youtrip.

2. However, now there is an avenue for us to empty our grabpay balances, i think that's a fair trade assuming that we only use it for local transaction.

3. OTP for payment are received almost instantly, payment details are also updated instantly in Grab app after payment is done. In general UX feels polished.

4. Up to 10x reward points per $1 spend is really good especially if you are using it for bill payment, everybody can become a Platinum member in no time. I have a feeling this reward will be reduced in the near future once it gained momentum. A $200 spend will give you enough point to exchange for a $5 worth of vouchers (assuming you are already a Platinum) member. This translate to a 2.5% cashback. Very decent! In addition, you also enjoy all Platinum perks.

No thread started because this is not yet official launched yet isn't it? They will start with Citi on a co-brand card in PH first...

In my case, i got a notification pop up offering this new "Grabpay Mastercard" and it says it's for selected user only, maybe that's why.

Then i need to proceed to upload my NRIC and do an "enhanced verification" by using Singpass login.

Once that's done, the card is automatically enabled on my account under the wallet, and navigate to Setting to view the credit card details. It's exactly as described in the website above.

I clicked on my Balance and it brings me to the GraPay page where there is a widget box below asking me to verify my identity with SingPass. I guess once I've done that the Grabpay Mastercard will come up?

lol. Not gonna hookup my national ID with Grab.

I signed up for their PayLater service, cos they are currently giving rebates if u use them. It’s like a credit card system too, u charge to grab first and then settle it at end of month. Anyone using this too?

I’m an active user of grab too but I didn’t get the invite for grab virtual card
