YTL Communications has partnered with Shopee to introduce an exclusive programme that rewards YES customers with free data when they shop for their daily needs on the e-commerce platform.
Dubbed YES DATABACK, the programme lets YES customers earn 5GB worth of data for every RM50 that you spend on Shopee, capped at a maximum of 100GB. The spend requirement is applicable for all purchases on the platform, and the free data that you earn via this initiative will be provided to you in the form of a redemption voucher on Shopee by the end of the month. You can then redeem the voucher on the MyYes mobile app for your use in the following month.
So for instance, if you’ve spent a total of RM120 on Shopee in December 2020, you will be rewarded with 10GB of free data that you can use in January 2021. The maximum cap of 100GB also means that you will be able to earn free data for expenses of up to RM1,000 on the e-commerce platform.
Note that these vouchers have a validity of four months upon issuance, and that they can be stacked if you want to make multiple redemptions. However, the redemption order will be based on the sequence that they are claimed; the latest activation of the free voucher codes will be utilised first. Meanwhile, the free data has a utilisation period of 30 days once it is redeemed, and it will not extend the validity of your subscribed plan.
According to the managing director of YTL Communications, Dato’ Yeoh Seok Hong, the rapid digitisation of the consumer buying experience over this past year has urged businesses to explore new ways of meeting and exceeding consumer expectations in the digital space. This includes helping the people to stretch their money further.
“Our mission to help the nation digitise with the most affordable plans in the market began with the launch of our Kasi Up initiative last week. The partnership with Shopee, which gives data back to the rakyat as they shop for their daily essentials is a further expression of our Kasi Up philosophy. We are creating a virtuous cycle of consumption by making every ringgit the rakyat spends give much more value in return,” said Dato’ Yeoh.
The Kasi Up initiative that Dato’ Yeoh referred to was launched last week with the introduction of three out of its four pillars: the Kasi Up Prepaid 15 plan, Kasi Up Postpaid 49 plan, Kasi Up Refer & Earn. Briefly, here are what these pillars have to offer:
- Kasi Up Prepaid 15 plan: 10GB worth of 4G data for RM15/month
- Kasi Up Postpaid 49 plan: 100GB worth of 4G data for RM49/month
- Kasi Up Refer & Earn: Get a referral fee of up to RM50 when you refer YES to friends and family, with the referee earning as well
The latest YES DATABACK programme serves as the final pillar to complete the Kasi Up initiative.
The managing director of Shopee, Ian Ho, also chimed in to say that Covid-19 and the movement control order (MCO) has made Malaysians more dependent on the internet in all facets of life. “The growing importance of both data and e-commerce in the lives of consumers has led us to come together with YES to offer something really special to Malaysians – the first-of-its-kind reward programme, which incentivises users with free data when they spend on Shopee,” he said.
If you’re interested in joining the Kasi Up initiative but are not yet a YES customer, the telco is currently offering the Kasi Up Prepaid 15 starter pack at the price of RM1 on its official Shopee store to get you started. The SIM will be delivered to you for free. You can also check out Shopee’s page to find out more information about the YES DATABACK programme.
