Nowdays, more and more people are using Credit or Debit Cards at petrol pump. The main reason is you do not need to que up at the counter for the payment. Another great reason on why we must use Credit or Debit Cards at petrol pump is because of the extra benefit that we going to receive.
What kind of benefit that you going to received? Well I think a lot of people are already aware of the current trend for banks in Malaysia to issue Credit or Debit Cards that offer cash rebate or higher rewards point to their customers. The cash rebate varies from the 2% to 7% and this depend on bank issuers. Regarding the higher rewards point, as far as I know at the time of writting, there is only Maybank issuing this card.
If you are looking for this kind of Credit or Debit Cards in Malaysia, then you are at the right place. Here are the lists;
Currently there are many banks in Malaysia are offering cash rebate credit cards. If I am still remember correctly, the first bank that offer this kind of benefit was Public Bank since I own their card way bank in 2001. They offering cash back option for their VISA cards but Mastercard user also able to convert their point rewards (VIP points) to cash back option. However as time goes by, now other banks are offering better cash rebate than Public Bank.

However, for this post I limit to the banks that provide cash rebate for permanent basis, on all transaction (except petrol) & no carry forward balance is required. Also I exclude RHB Business Platinum Credit Card as it not meant for end user.

There are a lot of discussion on which credit card & debit card can be used to verify & withdraw Malaysian Paypal account. I create this post to use as references on which cards works.
Just to clarify that all VISA, MASTERCARD & AMEX cards are suitable for Paypal Verification but take note that Paypal only allow VISA cards for fund withdrawal. However, this is subject to issuing bank policy.
