Get Cashback & Discounts Through Standard Chartered Smart Credit Card
[This is a paid article by Standard Chartered Bank.]
When you think of the millennial lifestyle, your mind probably turns to all that is digital.
Our favorite radio station? Try Spotify. Favorite TV channel? More like Netflix. Our favorite way to shop? Lazada or Shopee. How do we like to pay today? Electronic wallets.
Of course, the majority of these services require you to pay some amount of money to access them. Along the way, someone came along and invented the smart concept of cashback.
Since then, it has been a common way for financial service providers to reward their clients, but few are quite so in tune with today’s millennial digital lifestyle.
With millennium priorities in mind, Standard Chartered is releasing its new Standard chip credit card, aimed at working professionals earning an annual income of RM36,000.
If you fall into this category, here’s why you should want it.
1.30% discount on ecommerce spend
Now that we’re not so eager to go out jalan-jalan, many of us probably spend our free time browsing e-commerce sites, our fingers itchy shopping.
It’s hard to hold back, but using the standard chip credit card will pay off 30% cash back when spending on merchants in different categories.
Note, however, that your cashback would be capped at RM80 / month for the first 6 months after integration.
Here is a detailed example of how cashback works:
|Purchases||30% cashback capped at RM15 for the first 4,000 eligible customers per month||Lazada, Shopee, Zalora|
|Electronic wallet||30% cashback capped at RM15 for the first 4,000 eligible customers per month||Boost, GrabPay, Touch ‘N Go electronic wallet|
|Trip||30% discount capped at RM50 for the first 500 eligible customers per month||Agoda, Klook, RoamingMan|
2.30% discount on in-store catering offers and food deliveries
We have no choice but to spend on food, but being rewarded for eating makes it a little less painful.
The Standard Chartered Smart Credit Card gives users 30% cash back for in-store meals and delivery with terms and conditions, but that’s not all.
Each participating merchant also offers various discounts to sweeten the deal.
To get 30% discount on in-store purchases, all you need to do is spend at least RM100. (Hint, hint, it’s time to take your family out for a nice lunch or dinner, but with the appropriate COVID-19 SOPs in place.)
This applies to merchants like Dragon-i, An Viet, Aloft Kuala Lumpur Sentral, Bar.BQ Plaza, etc.
If you just want to stay home and have good meals with your family, spending 50 RM or more at food delivery vendors like dahmakan, Domino’s Pizza, foodpanda, etc. will get you 30% off.
This promotion will be available until December 31, 2020.
3.6% discount on digital entertainment spending
Most of us have some form of entertainment to relax and unwind, and if you tend to spend on games and shows, this deal would be of benefit to you.
By spending a minimum of RM 1,000 per month on retail purchases (local and international) using your Standard Chartered Smart Credit Card, you would unlock a 6% cash back offer at select merchants, capped at RM 20 each month .
The traders concerned are:
4.RM20-RM30 Off in daily offers
From now to December 31, 2020, using your Smart Chartered Standard credit card would also allow you to get daily offers from certain merchants.
|day||Merchant||Or||How? ‘Or’ What|
|Monday||Shopee||Shopee app||20 RM off with minimum spend of 150 RM, using promo code: SCBMON|
|Tuesday||Lazada||Lazada app||20 RM discount with minimum spend of 150 RM, using promo code: SCBTUE20|
|Wednesday||Zalora||Zalora app||30 RM discount with a minimum of 150 RM spending, using promotional code: SCBDEALS|

|Friday||Taobao||Taobao app||20 RM discount with a minimum spend of 150 RM|
5. Additional cash with 0% interest rate
A major benefit of the Standard Chartered Smart Credit Card is that you can get up to RM15,000 in extra cash at 0% interest rate plus RM100 back when you make at least one transaction with the card in 60 days after approval.
It’s an ongoing promotion called the 0% Check-On-Call Plus.
Here’s how it compares to standard credit card interest rates:
|Amount (RM)||Mandate||Normal credit card interest (18% pa) *||0% Check-On-Call Plus|
The promotion is valid until December 31, 2020, and you get a 12 month refund period.
This offer is exclusively for newcomer credit card applications (for those who do not have a prior banking relationship with Standard Chartered).
6. Save Money and Earth with CarbonNeutral Cards
Standard Chartered Smart Credit Card is positioned as Malaysia’s first CarbonNeutral card.
What is it, you ask?
As part of the CarbonNeutral ® program, the card manufacturer calculates the carbon footprint incurred (in kgCO2eq) for the production of this card, from the extraction and processing of raw materials, the manufacture and distribution of products, to disposal at end of life.
By offsetting emissions through the CarbonNeutral ® program, we provide carbon finance to support the development of renewable energy projects such as solar power and wind farms, preserving threatened forests and supporting projects that improve health and household well-being in developing economies.
