Is my new Maybank Platinum Debit Card pre-activated for MasterCard signature-based, contactless and online transactions?

Who here uses the Maybank Platinum Debit Cards, I am trying to confirm if all new Maybank Platinum Debit Cards are pre-activated for MasterCard signature-based transactions as well as with contactless and online transactions?

    No Name

    Maybank Platinum Debit Cards issued at Maybank Branches are pre-activated for signature-based, contactless and online transactions, which means that you may start using your Card for retail purchases immediately upon activation. Now for non-branch issued Maybank Platinum Debit Card cases, you should endeavour to activate your Card by following the instructions on your card mailer in order to use your card for retail purchases. I hope that will help to shine light on your question.

    5% year-round cash rebates on dining, groceries, petrol and more

    HSBC Premier MasterCard / HSBC Bank Singapore

    For me nothing beats the 5% year-round cash rebates on dining, groceries, petrol and transport (that is taxis, ride hailing, trains and buses inclusive), locally and overseas when you spend minimum S$600 per month. And the cash rebate is capped at S$150 per month. So if you don’t drive, not to worry as you can enjoy 5% cash rebate for your transportation needs, be it a taxi ride, a booking made via ride hailing apps, or trains/buses.

    Spend S$1,500 in the first 3 months to receive 24,000 Membership Rewards points

    American Express Rewards Card / American Express International

    The welcome bonus with this card is quite mouth-watering. Simply spend S$1,500 in the first 3 months to receive 24,000 Membership Rewards points. That you will find to be enough points to redeem for S$110 cash credit. Plus you can see the points add up with 100% bonus points on all spend in your first 3 months of Card Membership. I have been using this card now for 6 months and am yet to find reasons to complain.

    Zero Travel Related Online Merchants

    Citi Prestige Card / Citibank Singapore

    The Citi SMRT card is a pretty decent card for spending but they unfortunately exclude travel related online merchants. This to me is the downside of the card and may be a reason to get another card for travel websites.

    Complimentary Night Stay a Success

    Citi Cash Back Visa Card / Citibank Singapore

    Very impressed by the complimentary night stay I got after I made bookings for a five nights stay at a resort I spent my birthday at in Malaysia. Even more pleasing was the complimentary golf games at a high quality golf courses in Malaysia. As a matter of fact, I had as much as six complementary golf games.

    Too bad it is not an unlimited cashback card

    HSBC Advance Credit Card / HSBC Bank Singapore

    Unfortunately, the HSBC advance card is not an unlimited cashback card as they have a cap on the cashback per month, even for advance banking clients. Furthermore, if you are not an advance banking client, you would not get subsequent card fee waiver if you do not get to spend at least $12,000 in a year.

    Fee waivers and No transfe fees

    American Express Singapore Airlines Solitaire PPS Credit Card / American Express International

    The AMEX Express Singapore Airlines Solitaire PPS Credit Card gives a First Year Fee Waiver for you to enjoy and also for your supplementary card members. In addition there are no transfer fees and all the KrisFlyer miles you can earn are directly transferred automatically to your KrisFlyer account with no transfer fee. I would recommend this card for these few reasons which could really make the difference.
