Maybank Islamic Ikhwan American Express Gold Card-i Finance Charge
What is the interest rate imposed on repayments?
|Conditions of Repayments||Tiered Interest Rate (Per Annum)|
|Prompt Repayment every month||15%|
|Prompt Repayment 10 out of 12 months||17%|
|Prompt Repayment of less than 10 out of 12 months AND New Cardmembers||18%|
Previously, the finance charge was only imposed on the below that were not paid after the payment due date:
- Retail transaction - finance charge is calculated from the posting date till full payment is made
- Cash advances/withdrawal transaction - finance charge is calculated from the transaction date
The finance charge is now based on the prevailing tiered interest rate (above) and will be imposed on any of your outstanding balances including all fees and charges (except late payment charges).
These are carried forward from the previous statement until the outstanding balances are fully settled.
All fees and charges include:
- Annual Fee
- Cash Advance Fee
- Card Replacement Fee
- Statement Copy Fee
- Sales Draft Retrieval Copy Fee
- Any other form of service of the miscellaneous fee (if any) EXCEPT Late Payment Charges
A late payment charge of 1% will be imposed if the minimum payment is not made by the payment due date. This is subject to a minimum of RM10, whichever is higher up to a maximum of RM100.
This change on the Finance Charge will not have any impact if you do not have any unpaid outstanding balance. In fact, you will continue to enjoy a 20-day interest-free period, provided that the outstanding balances of your Maybank Islamic Ikhwan American Express Gold Card-i are carried forward from the previous month's statement cycle and are paid in full.
