Frequently Asked Questions

1. What is this monthly credit card promotion from CompareHero.my?

It is what it is! The monthly credit card promotion from CompareHero.my serves as a value-added bonus to our users who want to apply for a credit card. It goes hand-in-hand with our comparison service. We provide a complimentary gift for every applicant that successfully applies and activates their card when applied through us.

To apply, all you have to do is to register for the eligible credit cards and banks (above) during the promotion period. You can do the registration via our website or our advertisements on social media, such as  Facebook and Instagram. Remember to activate your credit card if your application is approved to be eligible for the complimentary gift!

2. Is CompareHero.my responsible for the approval and delivery of the credit cards?

No, we are not. The application, approval, and delivery processes are done by the bank. If you would like more information of your application status, you may contact the issuing bank.

3. How long do banks take to process my application?

The bank will typically give you a call between 1 to 2 days after registration with us. The bank will require documents for processing and, once submitted, may take between 1 to 2 weeks to approve or decline your application. Below are some documentations that are commonly requested for:

  • via bank hotline
  • by making a retail purchase

5. The promotion gift is guaranteed and it’s free?

6. How will I get the gift?

Once you have activated your card, you will receive an email from us (hello@comparehero.my) requesting for your delivery details in a Gift Redemption Form. Once you fill that in, we will pass it to a courier to deliver your gift.
