Whether or not you’re an avid shopper, going shopping for clothes, household items, groceries, and all that jazz is inevitable. In fact, one could say that shopping is a daily (or monthly) part of our lives! That’s why it’s so important to be strategic when it comes to shopping. You want to get your money’s worth, right? Well, if you relate to this on a spiritual level, here are some Malaysian shopaholics’ top secret tips on how to save more while shopping:

 

1. “I pay for movie tickets with my e-wallet to get a 50% discount”

“Let’s be honest, movie tickets are NOT cheap. That’s why I almost never buy movie tickets unless I can get them at a discounted price. One way I’ve been doing this is by purchasing my movie tickets via WeTix in the Boost app and getting a discount of up to 50% on selected movies thanks to their Blockboosted Weekend Special promo! It’s capped at RM10 which is just nice since most movie tickets are priced between RM18 and RM20.” -Stacey Tan, 22, Fresh Graduate

 

2. “For my Raya shopping, I’ve been visiting stores like Christy Ng, Mimpi Kita and more to get over RM75 worth of cashback”

“First off, shopping during festive seasons is the best because of all the discounts. Well, this Raya is no different. But aside from the festive discounts, with Boost I also managed to get cashback from a few of my favourite stores such as Mimpi Kita (RM25 cashback for every RM220 spent), Christy Ng (RM50 cashback for every RM200 spent), and more!” -Syaidah, 28, Accountant

 

3. “I don’t go to the pasar pagi anymore. I do a week’s worth of grocery shopping at Giant for cashback”

“I’m a housewife and mum of two teenagers. That means grocery shopping for food and other household items is quite a common activity for me. In fact, I used to visit the pasar pagi every other day to do my grocery shopping because it’s cheaper. But I’ve since switched to shopping for all my groceries at Giant because I can easily get RM8 cashback when I spend RM50. Now I don’t have to wake up early to go to the pasar!” -Mrs. Lim, 45, Housewife

If you’re looking for more atas groceries like fresh coffee beans or Ben & Jerry’s ice cream, you can drop by Cold Storage or Mercato. Boost is offering RM5 cashback for every RM50 spent at these places.

 

4. “When shopping or eating with friends, I would offer to pay for everyone first so I can collect all the cashback”

“If you use e-wallets like Boost, you’re actually able to get a ton of cashback from popular brands and restaurants like Nando’s, Burger King, Delicious, and more.

That’s why whenever I shop with friends and we go makan, I would suggest places covered by Boost, and at the end of it, I would pay first. For example, OldTown offers RM8 cashback for every RM40 spent; so when we’re done eating, I’d normally pay first with my Boost e-wallet and get the RM8 cashback. This way, I only need to fork out a bit for my own meal (while my friends pay me back for their respective meals) and still get my cashback.

Also, with the Boost e-wallet, I can easily split the bill and request money from my friends through the app. Don’t have to face the hassle of returning change or holding too much money in my wallet.” -Sarah Lee, 27, Journalist

 

5. “I visit malls situated in less crowded locations”

“This is a legit hack, guys. If you’re looking for discounts from your favourite brands, there’s a higher chance you’ll find them at malls situated in quieter areas, away from the city center.

Once, I was window shopping at Mid Valley and there were no discounts at any of my go-to stores. The next day, however, I visited Melawati Mall and so many of their stores were offering discounts! There was also a cashback promo by Boost where I got RM5 cashback after I spent RM50 with the e-wallet. Not only that, the promoter mentioned that I could spend two more times and get a total of RM15 cashback too.“-Tan, 28, Engineer

Speaking of Boost, ICYMI, Malaysians everywhere are currently making use of this e-wallet, especially during this festive season, to get hundreds and hundreds of ringgit worth of cashback thanks to the Raya, Shake, Raya Lagi promo!
