In the midst of this lunar new year, we’re seeing a lot of angpaos (yay to being unmarried!).

Now technology has basically given us an option where people can give angpao in a cashless —and potentially more rewarding—way to friends and family.

More “Huat” For Everyone

This Chinese New Year, GrabPay is letting you send angpaos for as low as RM1 each. With each successful transfer, you’ll get 88 GrabRewards points. Do note that you can get rewarded up to three times for the campaign period.

To be a part of this campaign, you and the recipient will need to make sure your GrabPay wallet is fully upgraded to v5.29 or above so that it allows P2P transaction. You can do this by going to the “GrabPay” section in your Grab app, clicking on “Upgrade now” and following the steps.

Once that’s done, you can click on the angpao icon in the Grab app or select the ‘Send as an Angbao’ option when sending money. Send a minimum of RM1.00 angbao and 88 GrabRewads points bonus angbao will be sent to you immediately, which you can find under the “Rewards” button in your Grab app.

Some of the steps you’ll need to follow before you’re rewarded.

FYI: Your first 3 P2P transactions done throughout the campaign can land you 88 points per transaction. Meaning you have the chance to accumulate a total of 264 points. This is also limited to the first 100,000 P2P transaction.

Lucky Number 8

To add the huat, every lucky 88th angpao transaction (88th, 176th, 264th etc.) during this campaign period stands a chance of winning up to 18,888 GrabRewards points!

An idea of the type of rewards you can get from the GrabRewards catalogue.

As long as you make sure to transfer RM1, you’re already in the running to be one of the 500 winners that could huat their way to more than 18,000 GrabPoints.

Winners will be announced via email and receive their winning points on Feb 14, 2019 and Feb 22, 2019. Plus, they’re throwing in a little bonus where you’ll be levelled up instantly to a Grab Platinum member, giving you access to all the member benefits like earning more points and prioritising when booking Grab rides.

Aside from that, Grab also still has their Prosperity Pack that costs RM0.88, and you can enjoy deals worth up to RM100. You can look forward to discounts, free delivery and special ride savings this Chinese New Year.

This whole campaign is set to last until the 19th of February so now’s the time to give out that angpao and get some rewards yourself.
