E-wallet Boost has announced its “Roar into 2022, Hu Wants More Huat?” umbrella campaign, which is to be launched in conjunction with the upcoming Chinese New Year celebration. Set to begin tomorrow until 15 February 2022, it aims to provide Boost users with generous offers and savings that will brighten their festivities.
Here are the various promos that you can look forward to under Boost’s umbrella campaign.
You’ll be able to redeem RM8 angpows for various Partner Wallets via the BoostUP catalogue, which can then be used to shop online and offline, pay bills, and so on. With Boost giving away more than RM230,000 through this sub-campaign, these angpows can be redeemed on four separate occasions, namely:
On top of the free angpows, Boost has also earmarked another RM130,000 for cashback that you can earn when you shop with selected merchants. You will be able to win up to RM18 cashback when you meet the specified minimum spend requirement, as is detailed below:
At the time of writing, the list of selected merchants has not been shared yet, but we expect Boost to provide it soon.
During selected days within the campaign period, Boost will reward its users with bonus Boost Stars when they make purchases from selected merchants. These attractive perks can be especially appealing when you shop for your CNY groceries, outfits, and travels.
Mark down the following dates in your calendar to earn yourself some bonus Boost Stars, including the chance to win up to 188,888 Boost Stars:

Just as it has done over the past two years, Boost is once again allowing users to bless their loved ones in any part of the country with its eAng Pow feature. You’ll be able to choose from various packet designs, with the option to include a personalised greeting.
Additionally, Boost highlighted that the eAng Pow feature can also double up as e-donations, allowing you to contribute to a list of non-governmental organisations and charities amidst the festivities. This way, you can share some joy with those who are facing hardships as they rebuild their lives after a challenging 2021.
In rolling out all the above deals, Boost said that it hopes to help Malaysians usher in good health and prosperity in 2022, as well as practise safe shopping from the comfort of their homes.
“CNY is one of the most anticipated festive seasons in the country as it signifies a time where optimism and aspirations are renewed. As Malaysians look forward to recovering after facing numerous adversities last year, we have curated a wide assortment of not-to-be-missed offers from various online and offline merchants so that our users can stretch their ringgit, and hopefully get back on their feet in the new year,” said the chief executive officer of Boost, Sheyantha Abeykoon.
Boost also urged its users to stay tuned on its social media pages for additional offers coming up throughout the CNY period.
