TM Bills Auto Debit Discount

I guess majority of us are customers of Telekom Malaysia (TM), either in phone, Streamyx, Streamyx combo or UNIFI package. Do you know that TM will give auto pay discount for customers who auto debit their monthly bills?

Auto debit is a service which service providers charge the monthly bills automatically to the customers' credit cards/saving accounts/current accounts. For TM, only credit cards issued by local banks and charge cards are accepted for auto debit.

For my monthly Streamyx Combo bills, I get to enjoy RM4 auto debit discount as I auto debit to my credit card.

So how to sign up for the auto debit service? You can either get the auto debit form from your credit card provider or go to TM point to get the auto debit form.

Updated on 9 Oct 2012
Visa is currently collaborating with TM for autopay service. If you sign up for TM autopay, you could get extra 300 TM Reward points and stand a chance to win cool gadgets. This promotion is valid until 15 January 2013.

Free iPhone for Signing Up Maxis

Recently there are many discussions about the new plan of Maxis that gives you free Apple iPhone 3GS.

P/S: the photo was made in Year 2010.

I took a quick look at the brochure. IPhone 3GS will be free of charge when you sign up RM50 monthly plan with 24 months contract.

I tried to find the plan on maxis website but it was removed. I heard that the response is overwhelming and iPhone 3GS units are currently out of stock. Maxis customer service said that there will be replenishment in the future and they are reviewing the plan for better package.
