Meanwhile, users may also collect extra Boost Stars when shopping with selected merchants like Lazada, Taobao, Christy Ng, Doublewoot, Watsons Online, Estee Lauder, Malaysia Airlines and many more. 

From Jan 10 to Feb 15, users will get eight times Boost Stars with a minimum purchase of RM88 and from Feb 4 to Feb 15, users will get 8,888 Boost Stars. 

All online transactions performed from Jan 8 to Feb 15 will qualify users to win 188,888 Boost Stars and eight lucky winners will be selected throughout the campaign period. 

All Boost Stars collected can be used to redeem vouchers on the BoostUP Catalogue and qualified users can participate in the BoostUP Pick & Win for more attractive prizes. 

Boost CEO Sheyantha Abeykoon said the platform has curated a wide assortment of not-to-be-missed offers from various online and offline merchants so that users can stretch their ringgit. 

“And hopefully, they can get back on their feet in the new year,” he said in a statement yesterday. 

Moreover, Boost is bringing back its popular e-ang pow feature where users can choose from vibrant e-ang pow packet designs with personalised greetings to share with friends and family. 

The feature can also be utilised as eDonations to a list of NGOs and charities featured on the Boost app. 

“Despite the festivities, we also would like to urge all Malaysians to continue practicing the standard operating procedures and shop safely from the comfort of their homes for all their CNY needs,” he added.
