Touch ‘n Go was clearly the more popular option of the lot, which led to some issues with the mobile app due to the high traffic. But, it’s day-two now and thankfully the eTunai Rakyat application feature is back online.

Part of why it’s widely chosen, is thanks to TnG’s RM30 + RM30 promo where you’ll get an additional RM30 on top of the eTunai Rakyat money – or at least that’s how it seemed. If you’re a keen eye, it says over on their website that the RM30 bonus comes by way of RM5 cashbacks when you spend RM20 in transactions.

Sure, it’s not quite the upfront RM30 some would’ve expected, but this is still a decent deal, considering TnG eWallet is known for their cashback incentives. Plus, the idea behind the eTunai Rakyat programme is to serve as a stimulus for a nationwide adoption for e-wallets. This is designed to get you to use your e-wallet.

Plus, the TnG eWallet is accepted at all sorts of places, to pay for all sorts of things – and since you’re using the app anyways, you might as well take advantage of any benefit that comes your way, right?
