“GREAT deals”, “value-for-money”, “exciting” — these were just some of the descriptions from happy customers at the annual Malayan Banking Bhd (Maybank) Treats Fair 2015.

Malaysia’s largest one-stop instant redemption fair is back for its 11th edition at the MidValley Exhibition Centre.

Taking place until tomorrow, the fair gives Maybank card members a chance to exchange their Treats Points for gifts and other items.

During this period, members can redeem their points at a special rate where every 250 points is equivalent to RM1, instead of the usual 400 points.

Visitors Chong Huei Lien, 55, and her husband Lim Wei Hup, 54, said the fair was very well organised.

“I have been coming to the fair for the past several years and they always have good offers. It is especially beneficial to the cardholders who can redeem their points,” they said.

With more than 250 booths, visitors will not be spoilt for choice at the Maybank Treats Fair 2015

Another visitor Zalina Md Nor, 35, said it was a good way to use up her Treats Points.

“I have been collecting the points for some time and thought the fair would have more products to redeem. I’m glad I came,” she said.

During the launch on Thursday, Maybank community financial services head Hamirullah Boorhan also kickstarted the Maybank Youth Campaign with the hashtag #CashIsOldSkool.

“The initiative is targeted at Generation Z individuals who want to be in control of their finances. At the same time, we want to encourage people to move away from carrying cash for their daily transactions with these debit cards,” he said at the launch of the fair on Thursday.

In conjunction with the fair, Maybank customers stand a chance to win an all-expenses paid 3D2N trip to Bali, Indonesia, with celebrities Akim and Stacy. The contest will be held till Nov 30.

With more than 250 booths and the theme ‘Hits and Music’, the event will feature a host of fun and exciting performances and games.
