These Shopee Coins can be used to redeem vouchers for future use or offset purchases on Shopee and if you get beyond 5,000 Shopee Points a month you’ll be rewarded with Maybank Treats Points to redeem gifts from Maybank too!

Shopee as a business has always been about impacting the local community in significant ways through our campaigns and collaborations with various stakeholders. This collaboration with Maybank and Visa is one that intends to help Malaysians with rising cost of living amid the socio-economic pressures brought about by Covid-19 as it offers users cash rebates in the form of Shopee Coins and more for all Shopee and offline spend. The card was designed to answer the needs of consumers today where shopping preferences have shifted as more are now relying on e-commerce even to get their staples, daily essentials and household necessities compared to years ago when users would only purchase things online if they are unable to get it offline. The launch of this card is indeed a milestone for us as it aligns with our commitment to use our technology to improve the livelihood of Malaysians with greater access, convenience and value,” shared Ian Ho, Regional Managing Director of Shopee. 

Maybank Shopee Credit Card Eligibility

Eligibility for the Maybank Shopee Credit card is for Malaysians between the ages of 21 and 65 starting 1st July with an annual income of RM36,000 and up. Successful applicants will also get a welcome bonus of 5,000 Shopee Coins when they spend RM300 within 60 days. Early birds who sign up for the card by 7th July 2020 will also get free Shopee Vouchers worth RM500 when they spend RM300 within 45 days on a first come, first served basis.
