Kuala Lumpur, 14 October 2010
Hassle free auto reload from a Hong Leong Debit Card
Hong Leong Bank (HLB) is set to garner a respectable slice of the growing local debit card market as it continues to innovate and launch new debit card products favoring different customer segments. Just weeks after the launch of its Junior Debit Card, HLB today launched the new Touch'n Go (TnG) Zing Debit Card which focuses on the essential needs of drivers.
According to Ms Susan Wong, HLB's General Manager - Retail Deposits, Personal Financial Services, "Debit Cards are increasingly becoming more popular as it allows you to access cash from your savings or current accounts directly to withdraw cash and make purchases at over 29 million merchants worldwide. In the year 2009, more than 4 million Debit Cards has been issued in Malaysia contributing close to RM150 million in retail sales."
"Harnessing the success of our TnG Zing Credit Card, HLB being the first issuer of the co-branded card, we now launched the Touch'n Go Zing Debit Card to provide more convenience and rewarding experiences to our Hong Leong Debit Cardmembers." added Susan. HLB has just launched the Hong Leong Debit Card in January this year with a whole range of privileges and offers such as Birthday Treats and our innovative Redemption Catalogue that allows you to redeem 100 daily items ranging from quick bites, personal care, household care and many mores.
The TnG Zing Debit Card is linked to a Hong Leong Savings or Current Account via the Hong Leong Debit Card and comes with an auto-reload feature. As soon as the value in the Zing Card falls below RM50, a reload value of RM50 will be automatically debited from Savings or Current Account and uploaded into the Zing Card. This not only provides hassle free convenience, one gets to skip queue with dedicated toll lanes.
In addition, cardmembers can also earn Reward Points to redeem items from its Reward Catalogue!
Today, the TnG Zing Card has evolved and expanded beyond usage on the highways - the Zing Card can be used to make payments for public transport, theme parks, 36 parking lots and 19 retail chains nationwide, thus extending credit facility to wider distribution besides providing convenience to Cardmembers.
In conjunction with the launch, HLB is offering attractive prizes for a 6 months period and the passport to enjoy these attractive offers is to have the Hong Leong TnG Zing Debit Card. During the promotion period, HLB will waive the auto-reload fee of RM0.50 so that cardmembers get to enjoy this service for FREE.
Cardmembers also stand a chance to win one-year petrol worth RM3,600 upon sign up and get FREE SmartTAG when they activate. Best of all, HLB is giving away FREE TnG Zing Debit Cards when you apply!
The HLB TnG Zing Debit Card promotion campaign is from 15 October 2010 to 15 April 2011. Product terms and conditions apply.
