Between today until 31 July 2022, Boost is running a campaign which is said to offer users a 50% subsidy on groceries at selected supermarkets across Malaysia. The campaign is part of its ongoing #BoostUntukRakyat relief mission that is aimed at helping Malaysians reduce their expenses on essentials.
Users can tap into the 50% subsidy by redeeming a RM10 Partner Wallet credit for groceries in the BoostUP Rewards catalogue using only 4,000 Boost Stars – which is 50% off the usual 8,000 Boost Stars requirement. Alternatively, they may use a combination of RM4.75 (Boost e-wallet credit) and 200 Boost Stars via FlexiRedeem to enjoy direct savings of RM5 or 50% off.
To redeem the RM10 Partner Wallet credit, simply launch your Boost app, and follow the steps below:
Upon successful redemption, the RM10 Partner Wallet credit will appear on the My Partner Wallets page within your Boost app, with a validity period of 30 days from the redemption date. The credit will be automatically utilised when you use Boost to purchase daily necessities (no minimum spend required!) from any of these participating supermarkets:
|Peninsular Malaysia||Lotus’s, Econsave, Giant, Mydin, AeonBIG, TF Value Mart, The Store, Village Grocer, Pacific Hypermarket, NSK, Hero Market, B.I.G., Milimewa, Cold Storage, Mercato, Big Supermart, Jimart|
|Sabah||Bataras, Servay, CKS, Boulevard Sabah|
|Sarawak||Daesco, Nam Leong, Boulevard, H&L, Emart, Doremon, Super Save, MDS Mart, Ta Kiong, Farley, BS Supermart, Borneo Supermart|
Note that the RM10 Partner Wallet credit is only limited to the first 5,500 redemptions throughout the campaign period. Each user is only eligible to redeem the credit once during the entire campaign.
“Many Malaysians have expressed their struggles to make ends meet in recent months due to price hikes on certain essential goods. We hope that our new 50% subsidy on groceries will help Malaysians afford more with less when purchasing eggs, chicken, and essentials at any of our partnered supermarkets across East and West Malaysia,” said the chief executive officer of Boost Life, Ungku Norliza Syazwan Ungku Halmie.
“The #BoostUntukRakyat relief is a continuous initiative, and we want to hear from the rakyat on how Boost can better alleviate financial burdens for Malaysians. We encourage everyone to share your recommendations, and we will work towards further enhancing our support,” remarked the group chief executive officer of Boost, Sheyantha Abeykoon.
