*Cash Out = Withdrawal of cash at MyDebit selected merchants/retailers.
MyDebit Cash Out : What Is It?
For those who are unfamiliar, MyDebit Cash Out is a feature of all ATM and debit cards in Malaysia, which allows you to withdraw cash at select merchants and retailers.
MyDebit Cash Out offers customers an easier way to withdraw cash from their bank accounts, without going to an ATM machine.
The RM 0.50 withdrawal fee only applies if you wish to withdraw cash using your debit card. It does not apply if you pay for your purchases using your debit card.
MyDebit Cash Out : Is It Worth Paying The Fee?
The MyDebit Cash Out fee will overwhelmingly affect lower income people, because they are the least able to travel to a bank branch to withdraw their money. They are also less likely to withdraw large amounts of cash at any one time.
So MyDebit Cash Out offers them a convenient way to withdraw money from their bank accounts, as and when they need cash. They will now need to pay for that convenience…
To be sure, the 50 sen fee is cheaper than the RM1 MEPS fee charged for interbank cash withdrawal at the ATM. However, you can only withdraw a maximum of RM500 per transaction through MyDebit Cash Out.
If you wish to withdraw more than RM1,000, it is cheaper to use an ATM from another bank, even if it incurs the MEPS fee.
Of course, if your bank has an ATM nearby, that is your best option – you get to withdraw your money for free!
