Boost eWallet users can pay at any UnionPay QR merchants in Malaysia

In conjunction with its 2nd year anniversary, Boost eWallet has introduced three new and upgraded features that will be rolled out beginning next month. Boost users can look forward to more rewards and savings, as well as an increase of merchant touchpoints thanks to its partnership with UnionPay.


Improving from the popular shake rewards, BoostUP is a rewards program that allows users to enjoy more rewards starting 1st November. The Shake rewards are now bigger where you can get extra coins, exciting prizes or Golden tickets. The rewards catalogue covers a variety of categories including premium gadgets, entertainment, petrol, telco, online shopping and gaming content.

The Golden tickets offer unforgettable experiences that include Mediterranean cruise, a day out with A-list celebrity, a romantic getaway at Pangkor Laut Resort, exclusive VIP access to movie premiers or enjoy the thrills of extreme sports overseas.

To kick things off, Boost is offering rewards and prizes worth RM8 million which include fuel vouchers as well as exclusive benefits when you flash the Boost app at selected partners.


For extra savings, Boost is also introducing a cashback feature called CashUp where users can earn up to 13.5% cashback from their favourite online retailers. This will cover over 100 international and local online retailers such as Shopee, Zalora, Lazada, Malaysia Airlines, AirAsia, Klook, Sephora, JD Sports, Kinokuniya, Amazin’ Grace and more.

Users can track their cashback via the CashUp section in the Boost app. After validation from the respective merchants, you can transfer your cashback earnings into your Boost eWallet balance. This CashUp feature will be rolled out from the 2nd week of November.
