KUALA LUMPUR: Touch ‘n Go eWallet’s eAngpow is back again for the second year to liven up the Chinese New Year festivities, keeping the tradition of gifting while overcoming the limitations of travel due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
TNG Digital Sdn Bhd, the owner and operator of the Touch ‘n Go eWallet, said on Wednesday users could transfer the preferred amount to any friend and family across Malaysia, at any time of the day without any added or hidden fee.
Users simply need to launch their eWallet, tap on transfer, select a recipient, enter the preferred amount, type a greeting and hit the confirm key to transfer. Greetings are available in English, Bahasa Malaysia or Chinese.
Users can send eAngpows to connect with their loved ones from now until Feb 27.
“As Chinese New Year lasts for 15 days, the rakyat can continue shopping for groceries, clothes, decoration items, food and gifts via the eWallet, ” it said in a statement.
As more transactions are done online, the Touch ‘n Go eWallet users get to embark on The Goal Hunter CNY edition, which introduces users to the Fatt Choy Angpow, a festive version of Touch ‘n Go eWallet’s cashback voucher.
It offers a much wider reward range, up to RM288 and is available for users throughout the month of February.
A transaction as low as RM10 earns users a stamp. With two stamps, users may select a reward of their choice from a pool of over 20 vouchers.
One user may claim up to five cashback vouchers a month, which essentially gives them five tries at the Fatt Choy Angpow’s largest denomination.
For users looking to complete their reunion dinner spread, they may order groceries or food and get them delivered by Touch ‘n Go eWallet’s food delivery partners namely EASI (formerly known as Hungry), Runningman, The Lorry, Riding Pink, MULA Eats, and BungkusIT which award free yee sang to the lucky users as well as a chance to win a lucky draw, valued at up to RM888.
“Chinese New Year is a representation of the Malaysian culture. Though it is often associated with visits and gatherings with family members, it is different this time, but it does not mean Malaysians should disconnect from each other.
“Instead, switching to a digital platform such as Touch ‘n Go eWallet, serves a similar purpose of connecting and re-connecting with loved ones in a #lebihsafe, #banyaktradition and #ekstraconvenient way, ” said TNG Digital chief executive officer Ignatius Ong.
