Yesterday I received my latest PB credit card statement. There was a charge of RM50 for credit card service tax. Thinking not so willing to pay for the RM50 service tax, I contacted the bank trying to request for waiver for my credit card service tax. Since I failed to contact them through their customer care line, I email to them instead. The reply was very prompt. Today, the customer service replied me to inform that there will be no waiver for the RM50 credit card service tax.
So, no choice. I still need to pay for the RM50 service tax. Luckily my Cash MegaBonus is enough to cover for the RM50. Thinking positively, this is a good starting effort to prevent us to carry too many credit cards. Imagine, if I have 5 cards, annually, I will need to set aside RM250 just for the credit card service tax.
I am wondering how about other banks. Do they charge you for the RM50 service tax or do they waive for you (when you request for waiver)?
