Want to shop but that shipping fee is too much for you?

The shipping fee can range from RM6 to RM10.

You can only use it for the items within their specific link though, so look through it and see if your favourite items, ranging from beauty products right up to kid’s toys, are there! This is especially true for those living in East Malaysia, where the shipping fee is usually higher. This is also helpful for those who want to buy many products from different suppliers without having to pay for the various shipping fees that will add on to the cost. So now you can shop as much as you want without worrying about high shipping fees.

But you will need to download the coupon daily as it expires on the day that you download it, and you can only get up to 10 coupons!

UOB VOX Card

UOB VOX Card

Earn up to 5% cashback on online shopping

1% cashback on petrol at BHPetrol stations nationwide, and up to 0.3% cashback on other retail transactions!

As there are plenty of sales and promotions to look out for, it’s important to stick to your budget and not overspend. Using a credit card as your main form of payment is great as it can give you great cashbacks and rewards in the long run, but the most important factor is to pay it back on time! Delays in payment would only see all your efforts in saving being lost in the long run. It will also affect you in other unpleasant ways that you would want to avoid as well, such as getting a bad credit report that would affect your ability to get loans or credit cards in the future.

So it’s always good to consider your budget, to buy what you need from these deals and stretch your Ringgit. Most importantly, strive to pay off your debt on time to make it all worthwhile.  Happy shopping and have a great Merdeka!
