It has been a good 6 months for frequent users of prepaid debit cards for oversea spendings. Grab has finally blocked all topping up to these debit cards effective 17 Jan 2020. With the block, users of prepaid debit card won’t be able to earn miles or cash back.
What’s next for those with extra funds in Grabpay wallet
Lets assume you have max the cap for Grabpay wallet of $5000. Below are some of the possible places for you to spend the balance and some allow you to pre pay.
- E-commerce (Qoo10, Lazada and Shopee). Not recommend for overseas site as you will be charged with 1% DCC Fee.
- Town Council
- SP Bill or Electricity OEM
- HDB Parking
- Dining/Shopping at retails that accept Grabpay or Favepay
- NTUC/Taka vouchers
- Telco bills
I hope the above usage of your balance grab pay credits is useful. I did pre-pay some of my electricity bills and left not much value in my wallet that is just enough for me to order grab food.
