Citi and Grab forms partnership to enable riders to pay using credit card points

Citibank credit card holders in Malaysia, Indonesia, and Thailand will soon be able to pay for their Grab rides using their credit card points, made possible due to the newly announced partnership between Citi and Grab.

The service will first be available in Singapore and Philippines. As part of the initial rollout in Singapore, customers who add their Citibank credit card onto GrabPay – Grab’s mobile payment platform – will automatically receive a discount for their first ride.

Grab customers who don’t have a Citibank credit card, but decides to apply for one through the partnership, will receive a number of free rides worth up to US$50 (~RM203). Following which, customers who charge their Citibank credit card on GrabPay will receive an SMS asking if they would like to pay for their ride using credit card points.

We have yet to receive an exact date regarding when this service will officially be implemented in Malaysia.
