Smartphone RM 200 Rebate for Youth

Remember in when treasury minister purposed the Malaysia budget 2013, he said that it will give RM 200 rebate for youth to buy a smartphone. After long wait, finally Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission (MCMC aka SKMM) had just announced couple days ago on how the rebate given and the restriction.

  • Age 21 – 30.
  • Price of the ‘smartphone’ must not more than RM 500. (i doubt how smart is it)
  • Must buy with telcos (Celcom, DiGi, Maxis etc) and subscribe their data package.
  • Only 1 smartphone per person.
  • Monthly income less than RM 3,000.

Oh right, let’s keep on to our today product compare. As we know, only DiGi and Maxis are having a special iPad data plan while other telcos have only internet plan or tablets plan, thought they are very similar, but I would choose only Celcom with DiGi and Maxis, because in the last post I’ve choosen Celcom, so here we can clearly compare with and without device bundle plans.

Compare Apple new iPad Device Bundle Packages

I love to compare the same products from different sellers, I also love to show you which one is worth and more valuable, but I love the most is to reveal the hidden conditions including the tricks and cheat from the sellers and to alert and warn you from being cheated or misleaded. That’s why the RMvalues has been established, however, it seems to be not very popular and accepted by public.

I know there are a lots of good website and blogs in Malaysia that show and compare the same things for you and they are very popular now, but if you read and compare here and there, you will definitely know I revealed more and dig deeper. So I would like to start my topic today by revealing the Maxis misleading RRP, then only compare the Apple new iPad device bundle packages.

Refer to Apple Official Online Store
