I have many phone numbers and one of them is a Hotlink Prepaid but I have never been bothered with their Hotlink Rewards Program until recently……………… which is damn stupid of me!!! However, for the pass few days I have been redeeming the daily reward points by checking into my Hotlink App.
I have been topping up RM100 every 3 months or so to my Hotlink account, so much so that I have more than RM360 in the account to be utilized!
I was so damn free that I checked out my Hotlink Rewards and to my surprise there are some good deals and even FREE stuff!!! Below shows I can get a FREE scoop of Haagen Dazs ice cream! But I did not redeem it since I am not going to the mall anytime soon and therefore give chance to others, haha.
There are many promos at Hotlink from Family Mart to Lazada:
Since I have so much money in my Hotlink, I decided to try to redeem the RM10 Lazada eVoucher with RM9.50 from my Hotlink Account.
From the image below, you can see that RM9.50 was deducted from my Hotlink Account which was RM367.20 before I “purchased” the RM10 Lazada eVoucher and the new balance is RM357.70
Bros & Sis, the Lazada RM10 eVoucher which expires on 31st December 2020 is totally FREE!!! The one and only reason why I top up my Hotlink Account is so that it will stay active. This eVoucher is FREE money to me!!!
Well, looks like I just found myself more than RM333 worth of FREE money!!! After I “purchased” the Lazada RM10 eVoucher above, I was surprised that I still can purchase another one! I also “purchased” a Grab Food RM10 eVoucher 🙂
So with the above, I now have RM20 Lazada eVoucher and RM10 GrabFood eVoucher both FREE money!!! And I still have more than RM300 of FREE money to claim from Hotlink 🙂
Come to think of it, this Hotlink is damn good!
- Usually I top up RM100 with my credit card and sometimes Grab when there is a promo, so that my Hotlink Account will be good for about 3 months. Therefore I will earn cash back or reward points with my credit card.
- Now that I know I can purchase Lazada eVoucher using the said top up credit in my Hotlink account, I can go “purchase” 10X RM10 eVouchers!
- With the above, basically my Hotlink Account will remain active for FREE or looking from another angle, I can get FREE RM100 eVouchers.
FYI, my Hotlink Plan is called Red. For my case, I don’t really need data (as I use Wi-fi) for my Hotlink phone. I have another two phones which has data plan. Below is a screenshot from my phone, top up RM10 with TnG eWallet and I’ll be entitled to RM3 – that’s 30% cash back! Top up via Online Banking get RM5 FREE – that’s 5% cash back. But since I am a credit card fan, I will still use credit card to top up directly or indirectly via an eWallet.
I just checked Hotlink website and noted that there are another two Hotlink Plans for Unlimited Internet or Videos but I have no idea how the plan works.
Anyway, I must go “purchase” more RM10 Lazada eVouchers before they are sold out.
The above was drafted prior to dinner time. After dinner my wife used 3 of the Lazada RM10 eVoucher I “redeemed” earlier from my Hotlink to purchase 3 stuff each paid separately. The voucher can only be used for one payment each time.
After than I went and “purchased” more of the RM10 Lazada eVoucher and ended up with 12X RM10 Lazada eVouchers and 3X RM10 GrabFood eVouchers – below is a video showing my FREE eVouchers. And I still have more than RM190 in my Hotlink Account! Oh yes, the Hotlink Account is installed in my new Entry Level Samsung M31 which has a 6.4″ screen and as you can see it is very smooth.
Another thing, I have 2 Maxis Postpaid Accounts too (and one of them have 3 Supp lines for my children who are all in Australia) which I just blindly pay the monthly fees and get nothing in return – with the above Hotlink Promos, it will make more sense that I switch to Prepaid!!!
UPDATE 8th September 2020
Well I also have a DiGi Prepaid and they also offer discount and FREE Vouchers!
Below are Shopee Vouchers available at my Digi Prepaid
And below are Lazada Vouchers where you can get RM10 Voucher for RM6.99 which is like 30% discount. The other voucher is specifically for 9.9 shopping event.
However all the above vouchers are good for small purchases and if there is FREE shipping, we should separate the order so that we can use more vouchers.
