Rewards credit cards are cards that gives part of your spending back to you in the form of reward points.
When you use your rewards credit card to make purchases, you will get reward points in proportion to the amount you have spent. For example, if the bank offers a credit card that gives 5 reward points for every RM1 spent, then you will get 50 rewards points if you spend RM10. The higher the amount you spend, the higher the rewards points you accumulate.
You can check your accumulated rewards points by logging in to your account through online/mobile banking. You could also give your bank a call or visit the bank to find out more information.
You can either call the bank for a redemption or fill out a redemption form then fax or mail it to your respective bank. Alternatively, you can also apply online.
Most banks will deduct points in order to facilitate the process of redeeming your rewards points.
When you return a product you have purchased, the rewards points associated with that product will be lost as well. Credit card issuers have policies where in the event of a refund, they will have to deduct your previously earned rewards.
