Cutting out coupons from newspapers is a thing of the past.

Now, people can get insane savings from digital reward points.

Ng is living proof that you can save up to RM5,000 by just diligently collecting reward points with GrabPay Wallet.

He is able to buy an iPhone 14 Pro Max worth RM6,299 by paying just RM883.30!

In a local community Facebook group for iPhone users, Ng shared screenshots of him exchanging 893,590 points for RM5,415.70 in purchasing credit on the Machines online store by simply paying with GrabPay.

"(My) GrabPay points were still a little short to exchange for a free iPhone 14 Pro Max. (I got to) keep working hard," he wrote in the caption.

The post has since gone viral with over 2,600 shares, with thousands of netizens stupefied by the colossal number of Grab points Ng amassed

"How much did you spend with GrabPay?" asked a Facebook user.

"I'm going to start saving points. (iPhone) 15 next year, (the points) will take care of it," a person said in jest.

Speaking to SAYS, Ng revealed that he spends RM10,000 with GrabPay every month

"RM10,000 is spent for the entire family, not just for myself," Ng, who is in his 30s, said.

"GrabPay has a limit of RM10,000 in spending in a month."

When asked what his trick was to getting so many points on GrabPay, he said it all boils down to avoiding the temptation to use the points for the entire year.

Ng also shared a trick to get more points by topping up the GrabPay Wallet with a Maybank credit card, which grants five times the points, and opting to pay with GrabPay for three times the reward points.

He claims that the method will easily earn 6.5 times more Grab points.

When asked to clarify which Maybank credit card he uses to top up his GrabPay Wallet, he showed photos of the Maybank Grab Mastercard Platinum.

On Maybank2u, the credit card is said to reward users with "5x GrabRewards" for every RM1 transaction spent on Grab, and "2x GrabRewards" for every RM1 transaction spent overseas, cross-border, and e-commerce, among other benefits.
