Kuala Lumpur, 27th April 2017 - AmBank (M) Berhad (AmBank), one of the largest banking groups in Malaysia and BonusKad Loyalty Sdn Bhd (BonusLink), Malaysia’s premier loyalty company officially launched the AmBank BonusLink Visa Card today at Parkson Pavilion, Kuala Lumpur.  

The new AmBank BonusLink Visa Card allows cardholders to accelerate the accumulation of their BonusLink Points with the 10X BonusLink Points offer when they shop at Parkson or fuel-up at Shell as well as on their everyday spending on dining, groceries, online purchases and entertainment. This is a vast expansion from the current locations, and literally allows an AmBank BonusLink cardholder to collect BonusLink Points anytime, anywhere on their everyday spend. 

The Card also eases the need to carry too many pieces of cards, as this is a 2-in-1 card, where it is not just a Credit Card but also a BonusLink Card, hence cardholders will no longer need to hold two separate cards. Cardholders will earn two sets of points when they use the card at any BonusLink Partner outlets, one set granted by the Partner and another set by the Bank.

For the avid travelers, they can also enjoy Travel Insurance Coverage up to RM2 million, 2X BonusLink Points on their overseas purchases and five complimentary Plaza Premium Lounge visits for Signature cardholders.

Dato’ Sulaiman Mohd Tahir, Group Chief Executive Officer, AmBank Group said;
”We are pleased to join hands with BonusLink as this partnership will enhance our customers’ experience and engagement with AmBank. Currently, the bank has more than one million debit and credit card holders.”

Victor Goon, General Manager, BonusLink also added;
“We were determined to create an extension Programme with a Payment card that not only enables our Members to collect a lot more BonusLink Points, but also help our Merchant Partners with exciting Promotions built around the usage of the Card. This AmBank BonusLink credit card rewards our Members with 10X Points at selected Merchants and two sets of BonusLink Points when they shop at BonusLink’s Merchant Partners across 3,000 outlets nationwide. It is a definite step up for BonusLink and AmBank, collaborating to bring this value packed credit card to eight million BonusLink Members.”

Ng Kong Boon, Visa Country Manager for Malaysia said,
“We are pleased to partner with AmBank and BonusLink to launch the AmBank BonusLink Visa card in Malaysia. At Visa, we work closely with our bank issuers and partners to launch products that are relevant to our cardholders’ needs. In addition, we introduce innovative solutions such as Visa payWave to displace cash and propel Malaysia towards becoming a truly cashless society, in line with Bank Negara Malaysia’s objective.”

The launch was also attended by Ms Jade Lee, Managing Director, Retail Banking, AmBank (M) Berhad, Mr Vince Au Yoong, Head of Cards & Unsecured Lending, AmBank (M) Berhad, Mr Peter Lee, Senior General Manager, Lion Group and Mr Loh Chai Hoon, General Manager of Operations, Parkson.

New-to-Bank Cardholders who apply for the AmBank BonusLink Visa Card before 31 December 2017 will also enjoy an additional 10,000 BonusLink Points upon their first swipe within 30 days from their card approval date. The new credit card targets the existing eight million BonusLink Members as well as any avid loyalty point seekers.
