“Just go to the GrabRewards catalogue and, for only 250 points, redeem RM5 off for one ride, valid for any vehicles and payment method on May 9, 2018 only,” Grab country head, Sean Goh, said in a statement today.

“One of the things that matters most to us in Grab is the voice of our Grabbers. Their feedback and opinions matter to us and we take great efforts to make everyone feel valued, appreciated and assured that their voice matters in shaping a company we can all be proud to be a part of.
