Maybank Debit Visa Card for Paypal July 23, 2009

The Maybank Debit Visa card has actually been around for quite sometime now but it was only recently where they enabled it to be  used for Paypal transactions. Actually, I really thought that this service has been going on for a long time, but I was proven wrong as I read through some past reviews of Maybank Debit visa card holders.

Our friend just applied for a Maybank Debit Visa Card the other day and he immediately enrolled it for his Paypal. He’s  just now waiting for his 4 digit code to be reflected on this account. I’m also looking forward to find out whether it’s possible to withdraw money ( from Paypal)  using the same card since I’ve heard a lot of failed attempts from the other in the past.

On the other hand, I would have to try to enroll our Maybank Debit Visa card myself. But before that, I still have to find out whether it’s possible for me to do so since the account that I’m using is a joint account.

Anyways, let me do that now and I’ll update you with the developments later.

Oh, by the way, if you’re using the old black and yellow Maybank (normal) ATM card and wish to have the new Visa Debit Card, you can do so  for a charge of 12 RM.


Credit Card Lessons April 2, 2009

CCWhy  haven’t I learned my lesson yet?.. A few months ago, I’ve resolved to list down my credit card expenses everytime I use my credit card and take note of its cut off date and payment due. I actually seldom use it..but last month, I renewed my domains and bought a new domain forgetting its cut off date and used my card for our groceries.

When this month’s bill came, I was surprise of the total since it covered an a bill which I thought passed the cut off date. Tsk..tsk..tsk.. So, now I don’t have a choice but to make some adjustments in our budget so, I could fully pay for the bill.

Lesson learned..but I guess the greates lesson for me this time is not to use the card much but only for emergencies. I hope I could keep to that resolution.
