Nowadays with new online technology and security there are still some of my friend that go to Bank ATM to make payment and money transfer. They still feel insecure about online banking or have a lot of free time.
As for me, Maybank2u is my trusted online banking since living outside Malaysia. Every month I will make money transfer and payment from my Maybank saving account. Although before this I had a problem to receive TAC code.
This is because Maybank do not recognise overseas phone number to send TAC code. So I have to bought a prepaid U Mobile and register with Maybank2u.
Luckily, I can receive TAC Maybank2u code thru sms even using U Mobile prepaid sim card. UMobile using Vodafone Network in Turkey. So every month I need to top up my UMobile prepaid with Maybank2u. I will use the U Mobile credit accumulated when I’m back in Malaysia. Yes, you can use Malaysian telco to receive TAC code as long as your mobile use local network provider when travel to oversea.
However for Maybank2u mobile app, I had a bad experience using it. Lack of useful features and some time hang during login process. I prefer using the Maybank2u online desktop version. Until I read on Maybank2u website that new mobile up is coming.
On March 7, 2016, Maybank has updated and enhance their Maybank2u Mobile Android Apps. First created in 2011 with 2 million downloads and numbers are increasing each day. I download and install on my Asus phone.
The all-new mobile Maybank2u apps have added 7 new features :

So far the Maybank2u mobile apps, have not let me down. No crash and error or even hang.
For security make sure you don’t store your user id and password on your smartphone in case of stolen.
Maybe on next entry I need to use mobile transfer to show how it really works.
During my online transaction with CIMBClick, I usually ignore CIMB advertisement. Not until I saw Elizabeth Tan with a travel bag and a guitar. She is a new singer in Malaysia and popular for her song “Knock, Knock”. At first, I thought that the ad is about Travel Insurance because there is no dollar or euro symbol on the ad. Even though I did read Travel Currency on the ad but my brain cannot decipher the message and can only see Elizabeth Tan singing with her blue stewardess uniform. 🙂
My point is please put a clear message on your advertisement, men cannot understand this kind of ad clearly. Please, if you want to promote Currency Exchange Service, please put Dollar and Euro Symbol or Elizabeth Tan holding a lot of Foreign money bill. Don’t just simply put Elizabeth Tan with guitar and a bag. We , men can easily get confuse. 🙂
OK now I can clearly understand by looking at the picture above. Let say if I want to buy One Thousand American Dollar USD 1000 from CIMB Travel Currency can I get Elizabeth Tan number hehe.
**If you order is below RM 5,000, you can proceed to pay the amount via CIMBClicks or from other bank.
A few reminder :
Remember when I wrote about Western Union with TEB bank in Turkey to send money to Malaysia. Well, now they do not accept Western Union transfer anymore. I am not sure what is the real reason because the Western Union sticker is still on their door.
So I tried my luck with Yapi Kredi bank just in front TEB bank. Because I saw Western Union sticker on their wall. The guy at the counter can speak English quite well, and yes they can process my Western Union to Malaysia.
Only one problem with Yapi Kredi bank, the que is quite long especially office hours. Furthermore I don’t have account with Yapi Kredi bank, so I am not their priority. Sometime I have to wait almost one hour.
But since I have no other choice, I fill my time by playing games on my Zenfone2. This continues for a few months until Yapi Kredi Western Union have a system problem. Imagine you wait for almost an hour and when finally its you turn, the guy at the counter say “sorry Western union OFFLINE”. Yapi Kredi was my last hope to send money, so I walk up to 5 banks to ask about Western Union. All of them gave me the same answer “OFFLINE”.
Then I think to myself, is there any other option that I can use to transfer money from oversea to Malaysia. I already asked before about Bank Telegraphic Transfer from Turkey o Malaysia. The lady from TEB Bank said that it will cost USD 100. So not an option. So my best chances right now is Western Union because the fee for transfer is quite reasonable. But I have to ask everyday when the Western Union system is back online. Which is not practical and time consuming.
Until one of my Singaporean friend here in Ankara offered his help to transfer money from his DBS Bank account in Singapore to my Maybank account. Plus, the commission fee is lower than Western Union around 50 lira. Luckily, DBS is currently have a DBS Malaysia Remit promotion, no charge (S$0) fee for transfer money to Malaysian Bank till December 2015. You can receive money on same day transfer. So no more walking and waiting to the bank. I just asked my friend to transfer money online, and I will pay him in Lira.
At first we tried to transfer only RM200 to make sure the transfer is successful. I gave him all my Maybank account number, Maybank swift code and address. Well, its good to have a good friend when time like this.
Moral of the story, make a lot of friends where ever you are. Be nice to them and one day you might need their help.
Back in the old days, queuing at the bank to withdraw money is tiresome. I remember once when I was in a boarding school in Pekan Pahang, I have to run back to my hostel because I forgot to bring my identification card when already at the bank.
I have no other choice but to run because bus will take a long time and the gate will be close around 5 pm . Taxi, hello.. I am a student and probably the money I have at that time is 70 cents, enough to get to the bank by bus. Can you imagine, I ran back to my hostel, took my IC and retun back to the bank. The distance between my hostel and bank around 2km. Fuhh. I must be really fit that time haha 🙂
Nowdays, we are so lucky that bank use online transaction like Maybank2u and CIMBclicks.
Today, I just want to share on how to send money to Amanah Saham Bumiputera or ASB. Since I am living abroad, usually I will transfer money to my father using Western Union and asked him to invest in my ASB account at Maybank counter.
Then I read on Maybank2u that I can transfer online to my ASB account. That is good news, I don’t have to trouble my father anymore. I only manage to link my Maybank2u to ASB last September, when I flew back to Malaysia for short holiday. I also have to change my mobile number registered to Maybank2u because the old one already terminated.
It is really important because, I need to receive TAC number for any transaction to be made except for Favorite account. Luckily, I manage to receive my TAC code even I am abroad. I use Umobile prepaid and need to top up every month to maintain the number. Here, my Umobile number is using Vodafone TR network. At first, I was quite skeptical using prepaid number to receive sms from Maybank2u and register a new line number is not an option. Even the guy that sold me the prepaid number was not sure, he even call his umobile agent to confirm. The UMobile told him that, I can receive sms from Maybank even I am abroad by maintaining balance RM50 on my phone. It easy to have RM50 balance because I cannot use it here, cannot call only sms.
Lets focus back to Maybank2u and ASB.
In order for us to transfer money to ASB online using Maybank2u, we have to register our ASB account into Maybank2u. Please have your ASB account book and handphone in front of you during registration.
When you account status is active, you can transfer money to your ASB account. Follow the steps below:
That’s all for now tutorial sharing from me. Hope you can invest and save money in your ASB account thru Maybank2u. Good luck.
