IN Chinese culture, rats were seen as a sign of wealth and surplus. Therefore, the dawning of the Year of the Rat brings with it renewed optimism for prosperity and all things good in the year ahead.
To amplify the sentiment of the season, Shell Malaysia has unrolled a campaign to help ease the lives of Malaysians into a year of prosperity and largesse.
The “Nak Ekstra RM20,000?” campaign offers 21 lucky winners the chance to enjoy weekly cash prizes and, best of all, the opportunity to win the RM20,000 grand prize.
On top of that, Shell Malaysia is also giving away RM1,000 to 20 consolation prize winners weekly.
A total of 126 winners have been rewarded and there are 84 grand prize and consolation prize winners to be announced until the end of the campaign period.
Powered by Shell FuelSave 95, everyday Malaysians can now not only go further, but also do more with extra money in the bank.
With the generous winnings from this campaign, Shell Malaysia hopes to help make a difference in the lives of Malaysians by giving them the extra push, whether to bring them one step closer to their dreams and goals or to help reduce their burden.
It is easy to participate in this campaign. All you need to do is spend a minimum RM40 at any Shell station nationwide on fuel, lubricant or any product sold within the Shell SELECT/Kedai premises (not including tobacco products, e-pay products and Touch N Go purchases) and submit the details in the contest form provided with a receipt to the cashier. Alternatively, just scan the QR code to submit your details and receipt online.
With this, you are in the running to win cash prizes of RM20,000 or RM1,000 to clear off loans, credit card bills or even go for a vacation.
The winnings can also go a long way in helping parents start a college fund for their children or a student to pay off his study loan. A working professional can use his winnings to place a down payment for a car or house while a family may use their winnings to pay their utility bills for many months to come – definitely a great help in these trying times.
Just like Shell FuelSave 95, a fuel designed to go further, the Nak Ekstra RM20,000? campaign will help customers pursue the things that matter to them in life and it begins with just RM40.
To date, there are six grand prizewinners and 120 consolation prize winners across Malaysia.
First week winner Mohd Raffi Ismail from Bangi said RM20,000 is a big amount and it can help his family a lot. He hopes to grow the extra RM20,000 cash prize into a more significant amount for the things that matters to him - his son’s education, honeymoon vacation and savings.
Winner with a big heart
Gunaraj Murugasan, 59, from Penang was the second week lucky winner of the RM20,000 grand prize. A loyal Shell customer for over 30 years, he always looks for quality in his fuel and believes that Shell’s fuel is it. No matter where he is, he will always look for Shell.
This is the first time Gunaraj won a contest from Shell. “This win feels like a reward for my loyalty to the brand for so many years, ” he said.
An active member of the Rotary Club of Penang, Gunaraj will generously give some of his winnings to those in need because he believes that the act of giving is essential to one’s wellbeing.
He plans on getting books and other school supplies for underprivileged schoolchildren as well as donate to an orphanage.
“As I am always looking for ways to help the people who are in need, I am very happy I can use some of the winnings to help those who truly need it, ” he said.
Meanwhile, for third week winner Muhd Shukri Muhd Deris from Pahang, the win could not have come at a better time. “My six-year-old daughter is in pre-school. While I am excited to see her start her schooling years, I was worried about the costs; from her books to school uniform and even school fees. Imagine my relief when I won the RM20,000 grand prize from Shell Malaysia. This unexpected extra cash is a blessing for my wife and I, as it will contribute to our savings for our children’s education. Thank you, Shell, and I hope you will continue to reward Malaysian families in 2020!”
For fourth week winner Azniza Bakar from Negeri Sembilan, her win finally brought her dream of owning a home to realisation, “I could not believe I have won. The extra RM20,000 is more than enough for me to buy a house and still have some left for my savings. I am relieved as my prayers have been answered, and I thank Shell for this”.
For those still waiting for Lady Luck to smile on them, there are four more weeks left in the campaign offering a total of four more grand prizes and 80 consolation prizes to be won.
