Maxis is rewarding its loyal customers with a series of extraordinary moments with its newly revamped MaxisONE Club. If you have an immaculate payment record and have spent RM500 or more over a period of 12 months with Maxis, you’re able to gain access to a world of First Class perks
Once you become a member of the MaxisONE Club Elite, you will get not just first class access to devices and the VIP treatment you deserve at Maxis Centers, but also unique dining experiences and exclusive rewards just for you.
These include priority services at Maxis Centers, culinary indulgences as well as an exclusive first chance pass to private previews to the latest and greatest gadgets way before the general public.
Let’s take a look at the perks.
Maxis today unveiled their new MaxisONE Club (MOC) privilege program for it’s MOC Elite members in recognition for longtime customer loyalty and patronage. Maxis postpaid customers are invited to join the MOC or MOC Elite based on their monthly spends to enjoy rewards based on the two tiers.
The HTC One M8 will be available in Malaysia tomorrow and Maxis will be offering the device on contract. For loyal customers, Maxis is also having its Maxis One Club offer where you can get the HTC One M8 with additional RM120 savings.
This is applicable only if you sign up for a 24-month contract with the HTC One M8 on its TalKMore 78 + 3GB data plan at RM1,399. The RM120 savings will be rebated back across 12 months at RM10/month. Normally Maxis would require an upfront payment of RM600 for this plan option but they are waiving it to Maxis One Club members with good payment records. The offer is valid until 30th June and you can get more info over to Maxis’s HTC One M8 product page.
While Maxis is claiming telco exclusivity for the HTC One M8, U Mobile surprisingly has started offering the same device on contract at an even lower RM999 price with an option to sign up with no upfront payment required. For those who prefer not to be tied to a contract, HTC dealers including a couple of online retailers are also offering the device for outright purchase.

UPDATE: Maxis has revised its iPad Air pricing making it similar to Apple retailer pricing.
The Malaysian iPad Air outright pricing has been revealed by Maxis this morning from as a low as RM2,049 for the 16GB model. Since it is being offered on contract, they are only offering the WiFi + Cellular version which supports 4G LTE connectivity. The iPad Air with 4G connectivity support is priced as follows:
iPad Air (WiFi + Cellular) 16GB –
iPad Air (WiFi + Cellular) 32GB –
iPad Air (WiFi + Cellular) 64GB –
Maxis doesn’t seem to offer its largest 128GB option for the iPad Air. Compared to last year’s iPad 4, the new iPad Air costs RM150 more for the 16GB/64GB model while the 32GB model is RM100 more. The price difference between the iPad Air’s 32GB and 64GB is quite a huge one with a RM350 price gap.
On Maxis, the new iPad Air is available with 24 months contract of SurfMore 30, 50 & 75 which gives you 1GB, 2GB and 5GB of mobile data respectively. The full bundled pricing as follows:

UPDATE 2: Official Maxis iPhone 5S/iPhone 5C Plans and pricing revealed.
Just couple of hours ago, Apple has released its official iPhone 5C and iPhone 5S pricing in Malaysia. Now Maxis’s iPhone 5S pricing has appeared as well with a slight price difference from what we have seen earlier.
The outright iPhone 5S and 5C retail pricing from Maxis are as follows:
iPhone 5S 16GB – RM2,349
iPhone 5S 32GB – RM2,699
iPhone 5S 64GB – RM2,999
iPhone 5C 16GB – RM1,999
Basically it is RM50 cheaper for the 16GB and 32GB version while the 64GB unit is RM150 lower. For the iPhone 5C the price remains unchanged at RM1,999 and comes with a single 16GB variant on Maxis. Nevertheless, it is still much more expensive than the iPhones launched in the past few years. Of course, it will be cheaper to own when bundled with contract postpaid plans. The full Maxis bundled plans and pricing are expected to be revealed soon and those who have pre-registered would be notified by email.
In case you’re wondering, the page above was stumbled upon by @wong_dominic via twitter which currently is not available. It could be possible that this is not the finalised pricing so we would rather wait until Maxis officially reveals their plans.
Thanks @wong_dominic for the alert on Twitter.
