Petronas Gift Card



I used to have a credit card. Two in fact. However I learned quickly enough that I'm that kind of guy who can't seem to control his spending with this credit facility. Needless to say, I gradually used up all my credit limit and a few years ago cancelled both my credit cards. Now I don't have any credit cards left and I'm slowly paying up my debts.

One of the perks of having a credit card is that you can use it to pay at the petrol pump. Meaning you don't have to walk to the cashier to pay and then return to your car to fill up. That is quite a convenience for today's busy city-dwellers. But what if you don't have any credit cards like me? Sure I can apply for a debit card instead but paying at the pump, they will usually deduct an extra RM200 ringgit from your account and refund them a few days later. If you're broke thrifty like me, you don't want any of that. That's why the Petronas Gift Card is great for people who don't have any credit cards but would like to pay at the petrol pump (and also the counter if you wish).

Actually somebody presented to me the Petronas Gift Card which was preloaded with RM50 credit to use at any Petronas station (thanks @shhaslinda). Previously I didn't know they even exist. You can use the gift card to pay for your petrol or diesel or purchase anything at the Mesra store. Once your credit had been used up, you can always reload the card at the counter to any amount you like. Here you can have the convenience of paying like a credit card but without the never-ending debts. Get your Petronas Gift Card at your nearest Petronas Station today.

    1. No PIN needed before each transaction so you have to regard it as cash

  4. Is there a way for us to check the balance? Or will it not allow us to use the card when the balance almost used up?

    1. You can check the balance at Petronas counter. Can use all available credit, no minimum balance required.

  10. I am holding a Gift Card 708381 284362 76471 with a balance of RM 53.80. However, when I swipe it to pump petrol, it always showed 51. When I asked the staff at the counter at your Green Lane Penang outlet, they told me that the card is invalid. How do I get a replacement card ?
