<Anchor> It is a

friendly economic time.

Today (22nd) will be with reporter Kim Hye-min.

Reporter Kim, today, are you going to tell me how to find the hidden scraps of money?


Yes, have you tried the card cashing service point that you started a while ago?


Honestly, I tried it because an acquaintance told me, but when I tried it, I could get some 20,000 back.

You said that our anchor Jeong Mi-sun also got a 5,000 won back.

<Reporter> That's right


There are some people who have tried to tell me this, but there are still people who don't know how to get the points back, so I'm going to introduce this to you today.

If you use a credit or debit card, the credit card company gives you points.

It can be used like cash, but it's annoying, and you forget it and don't use it.

In many cases, they disappeared after 5 years.

Then it just becomes the profit of the credit card company.

So, this time, the government created a service that allows you to check and receive the scattered card points at once.

By entering the address or app listed below with your PC or mobile phone, you can check at once how many points on your card are left by entering a few simple information.

If you want, you can also receive deposits to your account.

I also went in once and applied for it, and there were tens of thousands of won left, so I could get it back.

There is no need to register as a member, and the process is really easy.

However, one thing to be aware of is that unlike other card companies, 1 point for Hyundai Card M points is not 1 won.

Since 1.5 points is 1 won, the amount of money that is converted into cash is slightly reduced compared to other card companies.


Really, it's comfortable to be comfortable.

However, the fact that this is a point does not mean that the credit card company gives it as a free service.

When we use the card, we pay an annual fee and, frankly, we get a fair service as much as we pay, but there are quite a few people who can't take this?

<Reporter> In

fact, this was possible in 2018 for credit card companies to convert them into cash, but I had to go into the card company app and apply through a complicated route.

Therefore, the remaining points of this card company were 2.4 trillion won, and the points extinguished after more than 5 years of use exceeded 100 billion won every year.

This time, after the government started the'card company point conversion' service, it is said that Koreans have returned an average of 10 billion won a day.

It's been about 17 days since the service started, so it has been refunded about 170 billion won, but still more than 2 trillion won remains.

Please hurry to receive your refund before the card points expire.

And one more tip: When you cancel your credit card, your credit card points also disappear.

We recommend that the remaining points be converted into cash first and then canceled.


KRW 2 trillion.

There is a lot left.

It means that there are a lot of people who haven't visited that much, so it would be nice if you let your parents know.

Today we are talking about finding hidden money. Are there any other services?

<Reporter> In

addition to finding card points like this, there may be more sleeping money that I do not know.

To find dormant deposits or insurance funds that you put in your bankbook but forgot a long time ago, you can search for "search for dormant deposits" on the portal site.

You can also use a mobile phone to easily search, but first try this once and you have money that you can get. If it comes out like this, then it is convenient to log in with a PC and apply for payment.

There is also about 1.8 trillion won of sleeping money here.

Also, if you go to the Financial Supervisory Service's homepage, you can go to'Find My Sleeping Money', and you can search for unreimbursed utility bills here.

National taxes, local taxes, and health insurance, which you paid a lot or did not pay, can all be inquired at once, so be sure to enter here.

It is also said that there are times when it is discovered that you have paid more fees after canceling the mobile phone communication service or moving the number.

However, since the user's contact information has changed, there is no way for the carrier to return this. If you search for'Smart Choice' on the portal site, you can easily check the amount of non-refundable communication.

One thing is regrettable, there are many people who have collected airline mileage, but can't use it right now.

As of yet, there is very little way to use it elsewhere or get a refund.

I think it would be nice if there were various methods for this as well.
