AmBank (M) Berhad was presented with two awards from Mastercard Malaysia and Brunei for 'Best Overall Spend Growth' and 'Best Leverage of Mastercard Assets' at the Mastercard Appreciation Night held in TPC Kuala Lumpur on 9 August 2019.

Commenting on winning the two awards, Ms Jade Lee, Managing Director, Retail Banking, AmBank (M) Berhad said, "These awards are testament to AmBank Mastercard cards’ spend volume which recorded double digit growth year-on-year and our focus of acquiring new-to-bank customers that recorded similar growth since mid-2017. This was achieved by establishing a dedicated Mobile Direct Sales Team and Telesales Team."

"We will continue to focus on rewarding and engaging AmBank cardholders with card deals covering Dining, Shopping, Travel, E-commerce and many more readily available via AmBank Spot. On top of that, our card customers are actively being engaged with campaigns offering attractive prizes," added Ms Jade.

The campaigns include the recent Level Up Your Lifestyle Campaign which provides opportunities for cardholders to win big when they spend using their AmBank credit card. AmBank has given away one of the two grand prizes, the all-new Mercedes-Benz A-Class and daily prizes of 193 Lazada vouchers worth RM500 each.

In October last year, through the AmBank Mastercard Fly, Stay and Play Campaign I, AmBank also rewarded eight AmBank Mastercard cardholders with an all-expenses paid holiday to Resorts World Sentosa Singapore, inclusive of VIP tours to Universal Studios Singapore and Mastercard Priceless dining experiences.

Mr. Perry Ong, Country Manager, Malaysia and Brunei, Mastercard who presented the awards to Ms Jade Lee said, "Mastercard congratulates AmBank on winning 'Best Overall Spend Growth' and 'Best Leverage of Mastercard Assets' awards. The organisation is honoured to collaborate with banks and business partners like AmBank that are committed to delivering greater value and experiences to consumers at multiple engagement points. Mastercard is confident that this partnership will maximise the opportunities in Malaysia’s dynamic and fast-evolving payments scene while propelling forward the nation’s cashless agenda."

The appreciation dinner was held for Mastercard banking partners and customers to recognise and celebrate achievements in the past year, as well as encourage continued collaboration.

Following the success from the first phase of the joint campaign, AmBank has also launched the Fly, Stay and Play II Campaign which runs from 1 July until 31 August 2019 with all-inclusive travel packages to be won by AmBank Mastercard cardholders. Cardholders will need to make a minimum purchase of RM50 on a single receipt to participate. They will be eligible for one campaign entry per retail spend, while online and overseas purchases offer three and five entries respectively.
