A month ago, Razer has announced that it will distribute free face mask throughout Malaysia from July to November 2020. Made possible through a collaboration with 7-Eleven Malaysia, Berjaya Group, and Malaysia Digital Economy Corporation (MDEC), the face mask can now be redeemed at selected 7-Eleven outlets in Klang Valley, Johor, and Penang with more to come soon.
As stated in our previous report, you need to be a verified user of Razer Pay to redeem the face mask. The support document for Razer Pay Malaysia pointed out that users with a verified account are also provided with a higher limit for their transactions.
The same document also stated that the verification process takes around 1 to 7 working days to be completed. Once your Razer Pay account is verified, you can then obtain the face mask redemption coupon from the Razer For Life section of Razer Pay app which you can then use to redeem at the participating 7-Eleven outlets.
Do note that the redemption coupon is only valid for 30 days from the day it was issued, and each user can only redeem one free face mask per month. Alternatively, users are also eligible to redeem the free face mask if they made a minimum transaction of RM 10 in a single transaction through Razer Pay although they can only redeem one face mask per day.
Manufactured by Singapore by Razer Health, the free face mask is individually packed. Aside from packaging, you can also tell that the mask does come from the company by the Razer logo that is stamped on the lower centre part of the mask as well as the #razerforlife label on its upper left.
Haha no. Going to be insane trying to put tens of thousands of vending machines around Malaysia (trust me, we did a simulation). We partnered our friends at 7-Eleven to make this happen instead!

In Singapore, the face mask was distributed through vending machines, but the method is not feasible for Malaysia based on the above response by Razer’s CEO, Min-Liang Tan. While things might have seemed to calm down as Malaysia go through the Recovery Movement Control Order, don’t forget that there is no vaccine for COVID-19, so please continue to practice preventive measure against the virus including wearing a face mask when you are in a public or crowded area.
