Standard Chartered said that it has ceased to accept applications for its Liverpool FC Cashback credit card, following the removal of the card from the bank’s list of credit cards on its website.
A quick search on the Standard Chartered website showed that the Liverpool FC Cashback card has been delisted as one of the bank’s credit card offerings. Instead, there are now only six cards on offer, including the two remaining cashback cards in Standard Chartered’s line-up: the JustOne Platinum Mastercard and the Smart credit card (which now comes with a new card face).
When contacted, Standard Chartered’s customer service also acknowledged the removal of the Liverpool FC Cashback card from its list, and further informed us that: “At the moment, we will cease our Liverpool credit card for any new application until further notice.” They were, however, unable to share any reasons as to why the bank has decided to stop accepting new applications, or to confirm if it will be discontinued.
The Standard Chartered Liverpool FC credit card was first introduced in November 2018 with fairly generous cashback rewards, tiered up to 5% – provided you spent a specified minimum amount. The maximum cashback that could be earned back then was 5% (capped at RM50), unlocked by spending a minimum of RM1,500 and above on eligible transactions. Following several subsequent revisions, however, cardholders are now only able to earn 0.5% cashback on all retail purchases, subject to a monthly cap of RM50.
