I'm sure you've been in this situation before: you're waiting in line to pay for a single product, but the person in front of you takes ages to pull out your wallet and count your change. In this scenario, you want them to use payWave or an e-wallet.
Unfortunately, not many people are tech savvy. Imoney.my said in 2019 that overloading e-wallet options could worry people about launching an e-wallet.
Even the government had to intervene some time ago with its "E-Tunai Rakyat" initiative to increase the adoption rate.
However, according to The Star, citizens are quick to use e-wallets in their daily lives as more and more online orders and deliveries are made during the MCO period.
To add value to users, Boost, one of the first local e-wallets in Malaysia, has added a new feature called Boost Partner Wallet, which we'll explore below.
What exactly is Boost Partner Wallet?
Boost Partner Wallet is a new wallet in the Boost e-wallet app.
You can instantly get cashback from some of your favorite brands like Tesco, Watsons and Caring. The cashback can then be used for your next purchase from these brands. So at Boost, it's worth being loyal.
The cashback amount varies and you should consider the terms and conditions and expiry date of the cashback to maximize your savings. If not used, the cashback expires. Speaking of cashback: here's how to get it through Boost Partner Wallet.
Get cashback straight to your Boost partner wallet
Cashback from Boost Partner Wallet is pretty easy to get.
When you check out from participating partners at Boost, you will receive a shake reward that will give you Boost coins and cashback.
The best thing about Boost Partner Wallet is that the cashback is automatically deducted from your next purchase from the same partner, so you don't have to worry about missing out on savings.
For example, Spend RM50 at Watsons and paying with Boost could get you RM5 added into your Boost Watsons wallet, which can then be will be used in your next transaction at Watsons.
example: If you check out 30 RM worth of Boost the next time you shop at Watsons, you only need to pay 25 RM with your main Boost wallet. This is because the RM5 Partner Wallet's cashback was automatically deducted from your Boost Watsons wallet.
Note that the cashback cannot be transferred to your bank account and remains in the partner wallet until your next purchase from the same partner.
