MDG - AmBank NexG Prepaid Mastercard

*this post is meant for ALL MDG Blog Contest consolation prize winners.

Previously, i have blog about winning the consolation prize for the MDG blog contest.

i went to Nuffnang and collected the prize a few weeks ago and AMBank peeps activated the card just days ago.



Anyway thats not the main point, the main point is AMBank will be charging you RM3 every month after they activate the card. I figured out that i won't be using the card most of the time so i cancelled the card service and got the money back - RM97.



You'll be charge RM3 per month regardless of you are going to use the card or not, so if you think of withdrawing all the money out and not cancelling the service. Don't do so.

If you're not using the card then just go to the nearest AmBank branch bringing your Identification card with you to cancel the card and get back the money.

Find the nearest AmBank Branch here.

RM36 annual for a card whose bank I don't even have an account with (when I could get Public Bank's own debit card for RM24 per annum) is just too damn much.

Thanks for the heads up on how to cancel the card and get the remaining dinero - will remember to do that myself once I've activated the card that I've also won, haha. :D

joshuaongys said...

> synical : exactly!!! hahaha to some ppl RM36 might be nothing, but to me its like SO MUCH MONEY haha and i don't use the card service so might as well cancel it hehe.. and Congrats on winning the card!! =)

QuaChee said...

wow, to be charged rm3 each month... i heard tunemoney (by air asia) also got debit card? wonder if they charge that.

joshuaongys said...

> quachee : u can try using that and tell me about it haha

QuaChee said...

hi joshua

i act use a debit card in spore. the best part - it collect points too. ie. each time i shop at certain malls, i get points (which are $ points) and i can redeem them on the spot when purchasing any item :)

joshuaongys said...

> quachee : hahaha many of those cards in the market now allow customers to collect points whenever they use it, dats a way to make customer use the card more ><
