KUALA LUMPUR, 22 December 2022 — A simple RM50 cashless retail purchase turned into joy for Siti Rohani of Shah Alam, Selangor, when she won a Honda City Hatchback 1.5L S in the recently-concluded MR. D.I.Y. x MyDebit Je contest.
The contest, aimed at encouraging cashless payments for everyday purchases, was jointly organised by MR D.I.Y. Group, Malaysia’s largest home improvement retail network, and MyDebit ATM card, operated by Malaysia’s national payments network, Payments Network Malaysia Sdn. Bhd. (PayNet).
The 36-year old graphic designer was ecstatic at the prize presentation ceremony, saying “I am not someone who usually wins at lucky draws or contests. I am familiar with card payments, so I decided to participate for fun as all I needed to do was to make a cashless payment using my MyDebit ATM card at MR D.I.Y. – which I do often anyway! Winning a new car has really made my day. I can’t wait to drive this car home to share it with my family!”
Aside from Siti Rohani winning the grand prize, another 30 winners took home prizes ranging from smart phones, UHD 50-inch televisions, and 500L refrigerators. In addition, cash vouchers from MR. D.I.Y. and MR. DOLLAR worth RM100 each were awarded as consolation prizes to another 1,000 recipients.
Announcing the winners, MR D.I.Y. Group Head of Marketing, Alex Goh said, “Our aim at MR D.I.Y. is not just to deliver exceptional value to Malaysians; we also want to make the shopping journey exciting and rewarding for our customers. It’s been a challenging couple of years for many Malaysians, and contests such as these are a great way to bring some joy to everyone. As a homegrown retailer with 1,050 locations nationwide, we are well-positioned to be the Rakyat’s preferred destination for value and fun. And we’d like to thank the team at MyDebit for joining hands with us to make this happen.”
Azrul Fakhzan Mainor, Director of Card Services Division, PayNet, said, “This is our third year collaborating with MR D.I.Y.. Our goal at MyDebit is to reinforce the habit of using cashless payments amongst the rakyat, especially when it comes to everyday essentials. We also want to dispel the notion that MyDebit card payments are only for large amounts, and build understanding that MyDebit can be used for even the smallest of payments. This contest is one of the ways we are doing it, and we thank MR D.I.Y for working with us on this initiative.”
The ‘MR. D.I.Y. x MyDebit Je’ contest, which ran from 1 July – 30 September 2022, was open to all MR. D.I.Y., MR. TOY and MR. DOLLAR customers nationwide. To enter, customers had to make a minimum purchase of RM50 in a single receipt using a MyDebit ATM card, scan a QR code, and then send a photo of their purchase receipt through WhatsApp or Whoop to submit their entries.
