THE Covid-19 pandemic has shifted the way many of us shop. We turned our focus to the ease of online shopping but also to the array of good deals and discounts that clever bargain hunters can find online that would not be available in-store.
This too opened doors to the different goods and services we can purchase. As we support our local vendors, there might be a few brands overseas that have caught our eye on our favourite platforms like Taobao, Amazon and eBay.
As we ease into an endemic phase, many wanderlusts have taken this opportunity to travel overseas again, opening doors to overseas purchases – from amazing shopping finds to scrumptious delicacies – once more.
However, the concern of fluctuating currency exchange rates and an additional surcharge that comes with overseas spending may linger at the back of shoppers' minds. Therefore, it is important to seek out cards on the market that not only offer peace of mind but stellar benefits to boot.
CIMB Debit Mastercard offers safe and convenient cashless transactions with great Foreign Exchange (FX) rates and 0% overseas transaction fee on your overseas shopping and international travels. What’s more, you get to earn interest or profit on your savings account or savings account-i as well.
