“At Visa, we are committed to working with our clients and merchant partners to reward our cardholders when they make cashless transactions. We believe increased usage of electronic payments will help drive Malaysia to becoming a cashless society,” he added.

“We are excited to be collaborating with Visa and Maybank in bringing this new campaign to our customers as the preferred fuel company in Malaysia for Visa cardholders.  Not only do customers get the chance of a lifetime to see the world's largest, most popular sporting event in Brazil this year – we are topping it off by giving Kad Mesra users up to 10 times more chances at winning the grand prize!” said Mr. Mohd Ibrahimnuddin Mohd Yunus, Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer, PETRONAS Dagangan Berhad.

“At PETRONAS, we are continuously looking at collaborating with our partners to provide convenience and a rewarding retail experience for our customers. The campaign is designed in a way that makes participation a breeze for Visa-PETRONAS-Maybank card holders at any PETRONAS Station and Kedai Mesra,” added Ibrahimnuddin.

At Maybank, we are excited to work with our esteemed partners, Visa and PETRONAS to launch the Rio 2016 Olympic Games Spend & Win campaign. The PETRONAS Maybank Visa card is the largest co-brand card in Malaysia and has a distinct value proposition that offers a wide range of benefits and convenience for everyday spend as well as when used in PETRONAS stations. We are confident our cardholders will see this campaign as a unique avenue to try and win a chance to be at the Rio Olympics in person,” said Maybank Group Head of Cards & Wealth, Mr. B Ravintharan.
