After months of having fixed fuel prices for RON95 and Diesel (RON97 remaining on a floating price system), all fuel prices returned to a weekly price-float mechanism. Prices will be updated and changed on a weekly basis on every Friday onwards. This will benefit a lot of motorists as they will be able to fill up their vehicles at lower prices whenever crude oil prices fall.

See more: How to Save Money with Weekly Petrol Pricing.

Historically, the price of petrol in Malaysia was subsided by the government to keep the price artificially low. However, this changed in recent years when the government adopted a managed float system where the price of fuel would be announced monthly. Price adjustments are made based on the average price per liter of refined oil.

On March 29, 2017, the government decided to switch up the system again and adopt a weekly ceiling price. This means that individual petrol stations are allowed to deviate from the ceiling price, provided they get approval from the government first.

Can the price at the pump deviate from the ceiling price?

Malaysia has been protected from this effect in the past because the government would subsidize fuel prices but, with the introduction of the managed float system, that is no longer the case. Major influences on the price of oil are OPEC (a collective of oil exporting countries) and non-OPEC oil exporters such as Russia. Depending on their individual objectives these players might decide to cut or extend their production of oil, effectively driving the price of oil up and down.

The global oil price is one of the most important floating prices in the world. The price of oil indirectly determines the cost of living of most people on the planet, because it is so directly tied to fuel costs. As was previously mentioned, the weekly fuel price is determined by the price change in the global oil price. That means that if global oil prices rise, so will the price of petrol in Malaysia and vice versa.

Theoretically, individual petrol station owners could choose to set a lower price than the prescribed ceiling, but they would need approval from the government to be allowed to do this. Up until now, we have had no reports of petrol stations deviating from the ceiling price, so you can safely assume that the prices quoted here are what you are going to have to pay at the pump.

Related: Hybrid/Electric vs Petrol Cars: Which is cheaper in the long run?

RON97 is more expensive than RON95. It is generally considered to be the higher quality fuel type. RON97 is believed to be better for your engine and enhances the performance of your car, as compared to RON95.

Contrary to popular belief, RON97 does not necessarily give you more mileage than RON95. The mileage your car makes per tank refill is largely dependent on other factors such as the efficiency of your car. However, a heavier or lighter foot will ultimately decide how much fuel your car will burn.

RON97 is not necessarily the better fuel, even though it is higher priced. If your car does not explicitly require RON97, you are better off sticking with RON95 because it’s cheaper (most cars are optimized for RON95 or even RON92!). You may read about several tests that our local motor-journalists have done for more information: RON95 vs RON97 by Paultan – be aware that your mileage may vary (pun intended) as it also depends on your car’s engine.

If you are a frequent driver, petrol expenses are likely going to be one of your main expense categories. You can’t avoid buying petrol, but you can make significant savings on your petrol by spending your money the right way.

For example, you can make significant savings up to on your petrol spending by using a Cashback Credit-card with cashback on petrol purchases. If you can combine the utility of a petrol cashback card while benefiting from a weekly fuel price that is relatively low (and a lighter right foot), you can save large amounts of money on your petrol expenditure

HSBC Platinum Credit Card – Now Up To 8X Points for Contactless

  • By Lord Tan
  • June 21, 2019

You’ve seen the HSBC Platinum in its new look, but HSBC’s ‘relaunching’ the card again with more benefits. You can now get up to 8X points everywhere, not just in Mid Valley and The Gardens Mall!

Currently, the HSBC Platinum offers an excellent 8X on Rewards Points when you spend in Mid Valley or The Gardens, as well as 5X rewards points in other participating malls (capped at 10,000 additional points per month per customer).

Effective 15th July, however, the benefits will be better as the 8X points is no longer limited to two malls, but to all Contactless* purchases. On top of that, 5X points on Online Shopping spend, 5X on Groceries spend, and 5X on Overseas spend. All capped at 3,000 points per month, except Overseas Spend at 6,000 points.

What does this mean?

This update to the credit card’s benefits may actually benefit most people more than before, even with the lower points cap per transaction type. You can now reap the multipliers at just about most retailers. No longer limited to just two shopping malls for the maximum 8X, it will be easier to gain points. Online spenders and frequent travellers can benefit too, as there will be 5X reward points for their purchases, with overseas spending capped at 6,000 points per month.

If you’ve moped about the 8X points being limited to only two shopping malls and 5X points in participating malls, worry no longer effective 15th July.

*HSBC defines Contactless payments as purchases made using HSBC Credit Card via either Mastercard Tap & goTM, Visa payWave or Samsung Pay through a
contactless terminal near a point-of-sale terminal.

Maybank Cashback & Rewards No More For eWallet

  • By Lord Tan

Been taking advantage of Maybank’s generous cashback and rewards points when reloading your e-wallets? Time to say goodbye to that (unfortunately), as Maybank has announced all eWallet reloads will not be eligible for such benefits, effective 8th July.

What does this mean?

This means that Maybank cardholders who actively use eWallets will no longer be able to reap credit card benefits when reloading their eWallets.

For example, the Maybank 2 Gold Card American Express offers up to 5X rewards points and 5% cashback on weekends. Before, if you were to reload your eWallet, you can earn both, but 8th July onwards, no rewards points nor cashback will be given anymore.

This change will affect all Maybank credit cards, including the FC Barcelona Visa Signature cashback credit card or even the Visa Signature rewards credit card, and all eWallets that accept credit card payment.

  • By
  • June 20, 2019

U Mobile Sdn Bhd (“U Mobile”), the data-centric and multiple award-winning telco, today announced that it would be rolling out a fintech ecosystem this July. The comprehensive ecosystem will be the telco’s first foray into the fintech world and it consists of two distinct platforms, GoPayz and GoBiz. GoPayz is a universal e-wallet offering digital financial and lifestyle services targeting consumers while GoBiz is a digital payment acceptance solution created to benefit all types of businesses. U Mobile aims to make fintech services a lot more accessible,affordable and inclusive.

GoPayz’s distinct features are as follows:

1) Affordable Digital Financial Services – A wide range of insurance, online currency exchange, and wealth products tailored based on individual needs. For example, the micro insurance product GoLife Plus features premiums as low as RM13 per month, with coverage of up to RM 76,000.

2) Widely Accepted Anywhere – From online to retail, make payments anywhere locally and overseas via GoPayz’s Mastercard, UnionPay, Visa virtual and physical cards.

3) Accessible Anytime – Customers can perform everything at their convenience via mobile app.

4) Rewarding – Earn GoPointz loyalty points from various transactions and receive surprise rewards for qualifying transactions.

5) Secure and Safe – All transactions are performed in a safe and secured manner in accordance to regulatory and card scheme standards. As for GoBiz, the digital payment acceptance solution platform is designed to benefit all businesses, big or small. The key features of GoBiz are as follows:

  • Hassle Free Application Process – Approval within 3 working days.
  • Customised Solutions – Businesses can digitise their payment acceptance with solutions such as mobile point-of-sale (mPOS), or mobile virtual terminal (MVT).
  • Wide Acceptance – GoBiz partners with Mastercard, UnionPay and Visa giving merchants the flexibility to accept payments from local and international customers.

During the media briefing, Jasmine Lee, CMO of U Mobile, explained that GoPayz is a significant milestone not just for U Mobile but for the fintech industry. “With GoPayz, we can now offer affordable digital financial services to everyone. We have GoLife Plus, the micro insurance which premium is as low as RM13 a month with coverage of up to RM76,000. The premium is unheard of prior to this as life insurance has always been deemed to cater to those with higher disposable income.”

She added that GoBiz, like GoPayz, stand to benefit many too. “U Mobile’s intention with our fintech ecosystem is to empower all, be it consumers or businesses. Hence, GoBiz seeks to enable all businesses, even the smallest of traders, to accept digital payments from customers and offer additional revenue-generating services like telco prepaid top-ups and bill payments to their customers.”
