Recently, Citibank Malaysia launched a new credit card to help you save even more whenever you do your weekly marketing. It is a new Giant-Citibank credit card which helps you save through rebates whenever you shop at Giant which is really good if you regularly do your marketing at a Giant hypermarket.
The Giant-Citibank card offers the following advantages:
2% rebates on purchases made in Giant Malaysia
Up to 1% rebate on purchases made outside Giant stores
Members-only priced items
During their promotional period, members stand to get 10% rebates if you apply before 15 July and swipe your Giant-Citibank card on your first purchase before 31 August! The rebates will be given in the form of RM5 vouchers which you can reuse easily at any Giant hypermarket. A table of the number of vouchers you stand to get has been provided below:
|No.||Spending Amount (RM)||Number of Voucher in RM5 denomination each|
|1.||50 – 99||1.|
|2.||100 – 149||2.|
|3.||150 – 199||3.|
|4.||200 – 249||4.|
|5.||250 – 299||5.|
|6.||300 – 349||6.|
|7.||350 – 399||7.|
|8.||400 – 449||8.|
|9.||450 – 499||9.|
|10.||500 and above||10.|
It appears that they are rounding it off to the lowest RM5 voucher so instead of getting RM9.90 for your shopping bill of RM99, you will have to contend with a RM5 voucher. If you are a user of the card, do plan your shopping so you can maximise the vouchers as much as possible!
During their promotional period, the annual fee of RM90 is waived for a year and you are entitled to purchase an Olympus camera a 60% discount (delivery fee of RM50 applies) which provides additional savings if you have been looking for a camera.
The Giant-Citibank credit card works well only if you are a regular shopper at Giant. However, if you don’t have a Giant near where you live or work, it wouldn’t make much sense with the current fuel prices to drive out of your way to utilize these rebates!
