As shared last year, I have signed up for the GrabPay Mastercard. Besides the virtual card within the GrabPay application, they actually offered a physical card. I have used the card a few times for online purchases just to earn reward points. The reward catalogue still needs some improvement as I couldn’t find anything attractive to redeem using my Grab Reward points. After a long wait, I have finally received the GrabPay Physical Mastercard in my mailbox today. It comes in a green card sleeve.

Here are some benefits that I read about the GrabPay Mastercard

  • No membership fees.
  • Use Singapore GrabPay balance to pay for Grab rides throughout Southeast Asia without incurring transaction and FX fees.
  • Earn grab reward points when you pay using the GrabPay Mastercard.
  • Able to use Grab for online purchases although I read about certain sites have disabled the support for usage of GrabPay Mastercard.

As shown in the photo below, the shiny silver card looks simply cool! If you are wondering how to identify the card belongs to you since there are no details printed on the front, your name is printed at the back of the Mastercard.

There is actually a QR code printed on the sleeve when you remove the GrabPay Mastercard. Below shows the instructions to activate the GrabPay Mastercard.

I believe that most of us should be familiar with Grab and Grab Pay. Besides occasionally using Grab to grab a taxi ride, I also use Grab Pay quite frequently at restaurants and bubble tea joints as everytime you use Grab Pay to pay for the purchase, you earn grab points whereby you can redeem food discount or shopping vouchers. I used to grab food but after a bad experience whereby the delivery rider cancelled my food delivery after 2 hours of wait, I stopped grabbing food delivery using the app.

Today, I received an email notification that Grab that they are launching the GrabPay Mastercard and I have been offered early access. On top of the digital mastercard, they are also offering a physical mastercard.

  • Earn grab reward points when you pay using the GrabPay Mastercard
  • Able to use Grab for online purchases although I read about certain sites have disabled the support for usage of GrabPay Mastercard

I have some doubts though

  • No mention of annual membership. It is unknown whether Grab will charge for the usage of the Mastercard in the future
  • Since the usage of the GrabPay Mastercard is still not wide spread, security of the Mastercard is still my concern

Nevertheless, I shall try GrabPay Mastercard out and see how it goes!
