Do you consider yourself a smart spender? If you’re the type who likes to get the best out of your buck, we’re sure you’re aware that there are various ways you can shop smart. It can be in the form of earning cashback every time you shop or utilising flexible payments to manage your finances.

Well, what if we tell you that you can now enjoy all of those rewards with one card?

We’re talking about the Beyond Card – Malaysia’s first global prepaid card with a PayLater feature!

Beyond 1

This first-of-its-kind card in Malaysia, launched by Boost in partnership with CelcomDigi and Mastercard, is said to be an ideal and safer choice for those looking for credit card alternatives because it provides a rewarding and extensive PayLater feature through responsible financing. Read on to learn more about the unique benefits of the Beyond Card!

 

1. A Shariah-compliant PayLater solution accepted by over 100 million Mastercard merchants worldwide!

First things first, the Beyond Card is a prepaid card that allows you to set the source of funds, either:

  • Via direct deductions (pay-now transactions) from your Boost app’s eWallet balance, OR
  • Via the built-in PayLater solution, known as Boost PayFlex™, which can stretch payments by up to 3-month instalment. Psst…there’s a 6-month instalment option coming soon too!

Through Boost PayFlex™ within the Beyond Card, you can make a PayLater transaction through its Shariah-compliant credit line, where users can stretch payments by up to 3 months through instalments (the 6-month instalments option will be available in the near future!).

The Beyond Card is also one of the most comprehensive and wide-reaching PayLater options in the market as it can be used around the world across over 100 million Mastercard merchants, for both online and in-store transactions.

This helps users consolidate all expenditures onto one platform, instead of having to use multiple PayLater providers for specific merchants, making it easier to keep track and monitor your payment schedules efficiently on Boost’s all-in-one fintech app.

Before you worry about overspending with this card, fret not! As a responsible and regulated fintech leader, Boost employs robust scoring techniques to offer a controlled and personalised credit line based on each Beyond Card user’s affordability assessments to safeguard customers from an excessive debt burden. Additionally, all fees are transparently disclosed upfront for users to make informed decisions.

 

2. Exclusive cashback and premium rewards when shopping locally or travelling abroad

Another great feature of the Beyond Card (and arguably one of the most important functions for any thrifty spender!) is the rewards programme because that’s where you can leverage additional savings to maximise value for money!

In this regard, the Beyond Card offers one of the most premium reward experiences in the market as it is the first card in Malaysia and Southeast Asia to offer Mastercard Travel Rewards. This exclusive rewards programme provides a diverse range of deals spanning travel, shopping, culinary, entertainment, arts, culture, sports, wellness, and more from local and international brands.

  • Get THB1,000 cashback at JW Marriott Hotel Bangkok

And so much more! You can check out the full list of rewards on this page. (Terms and conditions apply.)

That’s not all. When you use Beyond Card’s PayLater solution, Boost PayFlex™, every Ringgit you spend will earn up to 3 Boost Stars. These Boost Stars are ‘as good as cash’ because they can be used to redeem even more rewards on the BoostUP Rewards Catalogue and unlock savings from ‘Pay With Stars’ direct discounts on bill payments.

Additionally, users who successfully apply and opt in for the Physical Beyond Card from now until 30 June 2024 can redeem a free scoop of Inside Scoop ice-cream using a Partner Wallet voucher on the Boost app. Act fast, though, as this exclusive promo is available on a first-come-first-served basis!
