Debit Debit Cardsss...

Maybank Debit CardMaybank Debit Card

Few months ago (probably 6 mths ago), i decided to change my Maybank Card to a debit card. My reason is simply i'm a lazy bump. I would love to bring less cash as much as possible. Everything will be swiped over the counter. Simple right? And then, next thing on my wish list is to be able to buy things online. Honestly, i was dam busy that i only tried it once when browsing through amazon.com and few days ago, registering with paypal.... and guess what?!! My card was declined. Hmm.. isnt it mentioned on the brochure that we can buy online using the card?

So, i called the Maybank call center (always the tak puas hati punyer pasal) and find out that its not meant for online. Sigh...

Public Bank Debit Card

So not wasting any time, i decided to move to other bank which can offer the internet services for their debit card. After few readings, blog testimonials etc, i gave the Public Bank Visa Electron a shot. I have my paypal account ready and just waiting for me to put in my card details and then i'm ready to make lots of passive income this year (just like how i planned at the beginning of the year). I had tunemoney in mind as well, but guess what! I was unable to go to the site up until today. Are they closing shop or what?
