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

No, CompareHero.my is not responsible for the approval nor the delivery of the cards. Kindly contact the issuing bank for the status of your card application, approval, rejection, and collection or delivery of cards.

What does it mean by “activate your card”?

When you receive a new credit card, it comes with instructions on how to activate the card. Unless the card is activated, it can't be used for purchases or cash advances. Activating a credit card will require you to follow the instructions from the issuing bank. Here are some common ways to do so:
  • via SMS
  • via bank website
  • via bank hotline
  • by making a retail purchase
 

Do I need to purchase or spend a certain amount to get the Flash Deal gift?

For the [March 2019] Flash Deal, there is a minimum number of transactions (3 transactions) but no minimum amount to be spent. For the sake of clarity, customers who do not meet the minimum transaction/s required shall not be eligible to receive the Flash Deal gift.

What can I spend on for it to count as a transaction?

An Eligible Spend is defined as the purchase of any goods or services (local or international), online or at a store, except for:
  • Instalments paid under Citibank's FlexiPayment Plan, EPP transactions, Credit Shield Plus, Quick Cash, Balance Transfer, Balance Transfer via Installment Plan and Cash Advance;
  • Any disputed, cancelled, refunded, unauthorized or fraudulent purchase transactions;
  • Payment of annual Citi Credit Card membership fees, Interest payments, late payment fees, charges for cash withdrawals, Sales and Service Tax or other taxes and any other form of service/miscellaneous fees.
 

Is the Flash Deal gift a guaranteed and free gift?

We do not guarantee the Flash Deal gift to every applicant or cardholder. But we do guarantee it’s free! We only have a limited quantity of Flash Deal gifts. So, we only give out that number of gifts according to “first meet criteria, first get”. For the sake of clarity, cardholders are sorted by the earliest to the latest date the 3rd transaction was made and the date and time of the registration of interest via CompareHero.my during the Sign-Up Period.

When will I know if I am one of the *Successful Cardholders?

Official bank reports are issued to CompareHero.my approximately 2 weeks after a month ends (i.e. middle of the following month). CompareHero.my will then contact the X number of *Successful Cardholders by email to get their delivery details. As an example, if you activated your new card between 1-30 March, we will only receive the official bank report in the middle of April. All cardholders are sorted by the earliest to the latest date the 3rd transaction was made and the date and time of the registration of interest via CompareHero.my during the Sign-Up Period. If there are only 90 Flash Deal gifts to be given out, we will then contact only the first 90 names on the sorted list and honour them with the gift. The remainder may be given an alternative gift as a token of appreciation.

Is this a scam? Why is there no public announcement of who won the Flash Deal gifts?

Firstly, our Privacy Policy does not include a publicity waiver and release. It means we cannot publish any of our customers’ names or private details that were submitted to us. It is also against Malaysia’s PDPA (Personal Data Protection Act 2010) laws as we do not have explicit consent from any individual to publicise their details. And no, the Flash Deals are not scams. It is based on the criteria date (and date & time of registration with CompareHero.my). While you may have be the very first to register with us, your card approval and transactions may have been much later due to a variety of reasons (delays in submitting documents / longer approval process / late delivery or collection of cards / delay in card activation).

If the Flash Deal gift is unavailable or out of stock, will I receive a gift that is of the same value?

If you are one of the X number of *Successful Cardholders, then yes – you will receive a gift of the same value. If you are not one of the X number of *Successful Cardholders, then no – you will not receive a gift of the same value.

Am I still eligible for any other gifts if I am not one of the X number of *Successful Cardholders?

You may be eligible for an alternative gift. At our discretion, we may deliver a goodwill gift as a token of our appreciation. The [March 2019] Flash Deal alternative gift will be a 20" Condotti ABS Hardcase (worth RM450), plus a Sports Action Camera (for *Successful Cardholders number 91 - 440 on the sorted list) and only a 20" Condotti ABS Hardcase (for *Successful Cardholders number 441 and above).

How will I receive the gifts?

You will receive an email from us (hello@comparehero.my) with instructions on how to redeem your gift online OR we could request for your delivery details in a Gift Redemption Form. Either way, there will be specific instructions given in the email and in the end, the gifts will be delivered to the address given via a courier service. *For applicants residing in East Malaysia, kindly read our Terms & Conditions if the Flash Deal is open to whole Malaysia or Peninsula Malaysia only.

Is CompareHero.my a trustworthy and safe site for applying financial products such as credit cards and personal loans?

Yes, we are! We have been around for over 5 years and is part of the CompareAsiaGroup that operates in 7 different countries and is serving over 600 million customers in the region!

The issuing bank stated that I am eligible for the Flash Deal gift, but CompareHero.my says that I am not, what gives?

The ultimate and final decision on the Flash Deal gift eligibility comes from CompareHero.my and is based on the official bank report. If you were told by the bank that you’ll be receiving the Flash Deal gift and we were not given such instructions, then a case will be raised to be investigated.
