The free RM 50 e-wallet credit under the ePENJANA program has finally been distributed to selected eWallet services on 31 July 2020, which includes Boost, GrabPay, and Touch ‘n Go (TnG) eWallet. The initiative was introduced by the government back in June under the Pelan Jana Semula Ekonomi Negara (PENJANA), and is aimed at encouraging consumer spending to help the country’s economy to bounce back after the events of the COVID-19 worldwide pandemic.
In addition to the RM50 provided as part of the program, each of the aforementioned eWallet platforms are also offering their own rewards and incentives to entice users. Keep in mind that the ePenjana incentive itself can be claimed once by every eligible citizen and on only one platform of their choice.
If you’ve not decided on which eWallet service to claim the incentive just yet, we have prepared a guide to help you with that decision. Additionally, we also understand that most Malaysians would have an account on all three platforms, so we hope that this guide will also help you to decide on which service would provide you with worthwhile benefits.
Among the three mentioned, Boost is probably the one that isn’t pulling any stops in terms of providing its users with additional benefits. For every successful claimant of the RM50 ePENJANA incentive on its platform, users will receive more than RM80 worth of rewards in the form of shopping vouchers.
Boost users are entitled to receive up to RM20 worth of bundled ‘Partner Wallet’ rewards across bill payments, prepaid top-ups, micro-insurance, groceries, health and beauty, and F&B partners. Additionally, an RM60 voucher is also rewarded to users who are on the Celcom Postpaid XP Lite package, which will allow them to get one year’s worth of discounts.
With each purchase with this incentive on the Boost platform will allow users to earn more coins via its loyalty program as well. In the newly introduced Level 5 tier for its rewards program, users can earn up to eight Boost Coins per RM1 spent and enjoy more benefits such as double BoostUP Pick & Win entries, a special welcome pack, and so on.
On top of that, successful claimants of the ePENJANA incentive program on Boost are entitled to stand a chance to win monthly prizes. These include eWallet credits, Shopee vouchers, Samsung branded gadgets, a Yamaha Y15ZR motorbike, and a new Perodua Myvi 1.5L AV AT 2020.

Next up we have Grab’s eWallet service, which is also providing extra bonuses for its users to enjoy after claiming their RM50 ePENJANA on the platform. Upon claiming, users will be rewarded with an additional RM50 worth of vouchers that can be used to redeem exclusive deals from Grab partners nationwide.
Moreover, the first 7,000 users to spend their RM50 ePenjana claims on GrabPay and use at least one of Grab’s services (GrabMart, GrabFood, and so on) within the week will also stand a chance to win a weekly bonus of RM75 worth of vouchers.

Rather than offering additional vouchers, those using the Touch ‘n Go eWallet will be provided a more straightforward approach in order to make the most of their RM50 ePENJANA incentive. Instead, the service is offering over 50 online and in-store promotions for its users, which provides cashbacks and discounts for every purchase with select TnG partners across the nation.
However, it is worth noting that it is the only platform that enables Malaysians to use their RM50 ePENJANA claims to purchase RFID Tags from the official TnG app. On top of that, to pay toll fares across supported highways across the country.

We hope that this guide has helped to give you a clearer understanding of what these three eWallet platforms are offering in terms of their respective rewards and incentives for the ePENJANA program.
Boost, GrabPay and TnG eWallet all have their own perks and advantages that will definitely benefit their respective users, but it is entirely up to you to decide which one is well suited for your own personal preferences and spending.
