The redemption of the RM150 credit will be available from 1st June until 22nd July 2021 and the credit must be utilised by 31st July 2021. Interestingly, Grab isn’t listed as a supported platform under the program.

Similar to previous programmes, you’ll need to verify your eWallet account before you can claim the free credit.
