Earn miles on your large, monthly expenses

That's when she stumbled upon a game-changer that would soon become the catalyst for her journey to Tokyo, all while making her non-card expenses work in her favour. She realised she could earn miles faster than ever by using CardUp to pay her big monthly bills - let's look at what she has:


Shift your rent, education, car loan and more onto your credit card


She has been consistently cashing out RM6,000 each month from her bank, missing out on the credit card rewards she rightfully deserves.

What makes it incredibly simple for her to embark on her CardUp journey is that her payment recipients aren't required to be CardUp users themselves. All she needs to do is charge these payments to her credit card, and CardUp will efficiently transfer the funds to her recipients via bank transfer.

Maximising credit card benefits

By shifting all these large expenses to her credit card via CardUp, Christine also enjoys additional benefits that her card provides and lifts the weight of immediate financial stress off her shoulders.


Benefits of using CardUp

What did she get in return?

With her RM72,000 annual spend, she is rewarded with over 58,500 air miles - and it's time for Christine's vacation to Tokyo, Japan!

Up to 66% on flight ticket savings on CardUp

This means Christine's able to save RM2,200 (a whopping 66% saving!) on her flight ticket, and she still has over 2,000 air miles left for her next exciting journey!

CardUp charges a small processing fee to enable you to earn rewards on expenses that typically don’t accept credit cards. The rewards earned can easily outweigh the fee, which is why Christine gets to enjoy a 66% off her flight cost by redeeming the air miles earned from the payments she made on CardUp.

What's more? to enjoy more savings, Christine introduces CardUp to all her friends through the CardUp Referral Programme, to enjoy payments on CardUp with ZERO processing fees.
