Boost to #KasiTambah More Rewards for ePENJANA with a Total of More Than RM130 per User


Boost rolls out attractive campaign with more than RM80 in lifestyle rewards and a chance to bring home exclusive prizes such as a Perodua Myvi, a Yamaha motorcycle and premium Samsung gadgets on top of the RM50 ePENJANA credit

Kuala Lumpur, 31 July 2020 – To further encourage Malaysians to embrace the digital lifestyle, homegrown e-wallet Boost is rolling out its #KasiTambah campaign in conjunction with the ePENJANA initiative. The campaign has an extensive and attractive line-up of special perks and rewards including a chance to bring home a Perodua Myvi or a Yamaha motorcycle to supplement the RM50 ePENJANA credit given by the Government.


The RM50 e-PENJANA incentive officially kicks off today, 31 July, and is open to all Malaysians above 18 years of age with an annual income below RM100,000 based on the Inland Revenue Board of Malaysia’s (LHDN) latest records and is a registered user of the MySejahtera App.


Mohd Khairil Abdullah, CEO of Boost shared that Boost is humbled to be chosen as one of the trusted and official e-wallets for the ePENJANA initiative. The homegrown e-wallet is also looking forward to playing a significant role in the collective effort to rebuild Malaysia’s economy and local businesses as well as to reboot the livelihoods of Malaysians to be more resilient in this new normal.  


“Over the past four months, Malaysians have embraced the digital lifestyle where the use of e-wallets have taken root in their daily payment habits. We believe that the RM50 ePENJANA incentive will further encourage stickiness with e-wallet use amongst Malaysians and serve as an added measure to safeguard the health of Malaysians with contactless payments as COVID-19 remains a threat. More importantly, it will help stimulate the local economy. As businesses re-open, the ePENJANA stimulus initiative will be crucial in jumpstarting the economy for many businesses, especially the micro enterprises and SMEs (MSMEs), who were impacted by the enforced closures that was a crucial step in our fight towards flattening the curve.”


To claim the RM50 ePENJANA credit with Boost, users have to perform the eKYC (Know Your Customer) account verification process as well as download and be a registered user on the MySejahtera App.

  5. Upon successful verification and eligibility check, the RM50 will automatically be credited into your Boost e-wallet and ready to use.

“Throughout the 2-month ePENJANA period, we will #KasiTambah value added rewards for users to serve as a bonus incentive for Malaysians to resume their social activities in this recovery phase. With Boost, Malaysians can transact at over 180,000 merchants nationwide with more than 60% of them comprising small and micro-SMEs, which gives Malaysians plenty of opportunities to support local businesses.
