The Federal Territories Ministry recently relaunched the discount card, 'Kad Ceria Wilayah' in an effort to reduce the rakyat's financial burdens
This is an exclusive card for Malaysians in Kuala Lumpur, Putrajaya, and Labuan to enjoy special discounts as they will be able to purchase essential goods and services at discounted prices.
Kad Ceria was previously known as 'Kad Komuniti Ceria' when it was first launched in 2015. The Federal Territories Ministry decided to revamp and reintroduce the new card with additional features and better benefits to entice more consumers and companies to use it.
These cards are given out free to eligible applicants and the cards do not have an expiry date.
What are the benefits of having this card?
1. Up to 70% discount on the purchase of goods, food, and services.
2. There are more than 1,200 participating trade partner stores.
3. A special discount rate will be given for the rental of selected Kuala Lumpur City Hall (DBKL), Putrajaya Corporation (PPJ), and Labuan Corporation (PL) facilities.
4. Functions as an 'e-wallet' for a cashless shopping experience at participating stores.
Some of the most notable trade partners include Mydin, KK Super Mart, Berjaya Hotels & Resorts, Kamdar, Wendy's, Kenny Rogers restaurants, and Restoran Rasa Utara.
A quick check on the Kad Ceria website reveals that there are discount rates offered for various purchase of goods and services - ranging from food to cosmetics, dental services, and more.
