“In light of the pandemic, the e-Angpao service provides our customers who are unable to meet with their families this Chinese New Year, a safe and convenient way to participate in the cherished tradition,” said John Chong, Group Chief Executive Officer, Community Financial Services of Maybank.
“We hope that the e-Angpao will be able to give them a sense of normalcy and a chance to bond with their family members despite having to physical distance to keep everyone safe,” he added.
For those who are not familiar with e-Angpao, Maybank customers can send it to family and friends by clicking on the e-Angpao icon on Maybank’s new MAE app, from 8 February until 7 March 2021. An e-Angpao can be sent in two ways: first, using the ‘Send Money’ function for recipients with the MAE app; or second, using the ‘Scan & Pay’ function for recipients with a QR code-enabled banking app.
Meanwhile, Maybank customers who send a minimum of RM5 e-Angpao with the MAE app can also earn entries to participate in the ‘ALL SORTS OF ONG’ giveaways which offers RM 7 million worth of cash and vouchers. To learn more, just head on to the MAE section of Maybank’s official website.
