FAQ

BorneoTalk Card

The Privilege Card is our way of saying "thank you" to everyone who has supported us over the years.

Holders of a BT Privilege Card unlock a world of privileges! Enjoy discounts and savings at our merchant partners.

We know that money - or lack of - can get in the way of enjoying ourselves. With the BT Card we want you to let loose and be able to save money whilst getting the most out of life!

How much does the card cost?
For only RM10.00
What are the subscription fees?
NOTHING! Once you buy, you’re a member for life! No hidden fees/surcharges - lifetime access!
Sounds good! Where do I buy your BorneoTalk privilege card?
You can pick it up at our head office:
Bumi Serasi Office - 242E Jalan Green, Lorong 3, 93150 Kuching
Do I need to register the card?
Nope! Nothing like that needed - the card is usable upon purchase.
How do I use the card?
Just flash the card when making a purchase at one of our partnered merchants.
P.S. Because there’s no electronic registration process, you need to carry your card with you and show it for the discount to apply! Our tip: keep it in your wallet and show when the discount is available.
Where can I find a full list of your vendors under the privilege card?
Head over to our BT Card section for the full list of more than 150 vendors partnered with our privilege card scheme!
Is your vendor list final or are you adding more?
We are always on the lookout for more partners to join the card. Not to worry if you bought the card a year ago or just 5 minutes ago; all discounts offered by past, present and future merchant partners will still apply.
