    Only 3000 card members nationwide could enjoy a maximum of RM100 each monthly, or RM666.67 in spending. Are you the “lucky” one ?

      The trick is to spend at the beginning of the month.

    That’s the problem with PB’s cash back promotion…it’s half-heartedly given. Yes, although the trick is to spend at the beginning of the month, how sure are you that the opportunity is still available by the 5th, 6th, and so on of the month? What if by the 1st and 2nd and mayabe 3rd of the month, the allocation for cash back is all used up? Sounds more like a competition for cash back! Not just that, you won’t know immediately in the coming credit card statement whether you managed to get the caash back or not, you have to wait for one-and-a-half month later, then you either see or don’t see any cash back written in your statement. Shame on PB!

      Yes agree with you. In the previous campaign monthly cap is RM500,000 instead of RM300,000. I manage to get the rebate even on spending on the 20th. But now I think the cap will reach very fast.

    Wah, you are very lucky! For me, I have just called up their PB customer service personnel and told me that the recent rebate given up for September 2010 promotion, the allocation was all used up by 7th September! I made more than RM100 purchases using the PB Card, on on the 7th Sept. and another in somewhere the middle of Sept, and now I see my bill statement has no mention about the cash back at all and the personnel says that means I didn’t manage to get the cash back! And they also said they have no way of knowing real-time whether the allocation still got or not. So those poor fellar will be ‘blindly’ swiping their PB card in Sept. hoping to get the cash back, only to be told everything was used up already! Geramnya! And the personnel also said it’s no joke that everything has been used up by the 7th Sept.!

      The bank use this trick so that more user used their card in spending.

      That’s why I say need to used the card at the beginning of the month. After that stop using it or switch to other card.
