From 21 April 2021 onwards, Affin Bank will be removing its Affin Duo cashback benefits for several e-wallets, including Fasspay, Presto Pay, and Razer Gold/Pay. In return, it will be adding a new name to its list of eligible e-wallets: Zapp.
With this revision, cardholders of the Affin Visa Cash Back card will no longer be entitled to cashback rewards for transactions that are carried on Fasspay, Instapay eWallet, Instapay Card, Presto Pay, Razer Gold/Pay, TaPay, and weChat Pay.
The Affin Visa Cash Back Card is one of two cards that are paired together to form Affin Duo, and it offers 3% cashback on e-wallet, auto-billing, and online transactions. With regard to e-wallet transactions, the Affin Visa Cash Back Card currently provides cashback for a total of 18 e-wallets, with one revision to the list of eligible e-wallets already carried out back in November 2020 since its launch in August last year.
Following the implementation of this latest revision on 21 April 2021, the number of eligible e-wallets will soon reduce to 12 e-wallets, namely:
- Gkash eWallet
- Lazada Wallet
- Touch ‘n Go Prepaid Card
- Touch ‘n Go eWallet
Even so, the Affin Visa Cash Back Card is still considered to be fairly generous with the number of e-wallets that are permitted to tap into its cashback benefits – which in turn, makes it (and the Affin Duo) some of the most favourable credit cards in the market.
