This requires you to submit your CPF Contribution History Statement so your credit limit can be determined. On the other hand, the student Credit Card offered by Maybank, ‘Maybank eVibes Card - The Student Card’ comes with a preset credit limit of S$500. ‘The Maybank Business Platinum MasterCard’ finds the balance between the two where you can decide the preset limit for the Credit Card before giving it to your employees.

    Conclusion

    MayBank is not oblivious to the fact that Singapore is a country with considerable credit card debt. As cash or card argument gains steam, you also have to remember that like any modern day invention, ‘wise use’ is the key when it comes to plastic money. Banks cannot inculcate discipline and money management. Only you can do that. And if that is not a problem, why miss out cashing in on the benefits?
