SOCARs Festive Year End Promotions Are Worth Missing Out On

Christmas is truly the season of giving and SOCAR has come up with a list of year-end festive promotions for Malaysians to enjoy when they pick up a SOCAR and spend time with their friends and family. It’s too bad these promotions are a tad bit underwhelming.

The company may have grown to boast 2,000 SOCAR Zones around Malaysia, which is great and all but with all this growth, one would expect it’s year-end festive promotions to actually make you want to use the service. Let’s take a look at what they’re offering.

500 GrabRewards Points Giveaway

SOCAR has partnered with GrabRewards to give out 3.3 million GrabRewards Points to SOCAR Members! You can now earn 500 GrabRewards Points when you use GrabPay for the first time to make a SOCAR booking.
How to earn these 500 Grab points?

New SOCAR Users
1. Download the SOCAR App via the Google Play Store or Apple App Store.
2. Register GrabPay as your primary payment method.
3. Make your first completed booking with a minimum 3-hour duration and pay with GrabPay to earn 500 points.

Existing Users
1. Register GrabPay as your payment method.
2. Use GrabPay for the first time to make a SOCAR Booking.
3. The reservation value must be a minimum of RM50 to earn 500 points.
This promotion is valid for any SOCAR model till 31 January 2020.

So this promo is great and all except for the fact that it really isn’t. 500 grab points isn’t even worth much so while it may be great that they’ve tied up with Grab to provide the option to pay with GrabPay, this GrabRewards Giveaway isn’t exciting at all.

How to enjoy a 15% discount?

Hong Leong Bank
1. Register your Hong Leong Bank credit/debit card as the payment method in the SOCAR App.
2. The coupon will be auto-issued to your coupon book.
3. Enjoy 15% off on your bookings made throughout December 2019 till 31
January 2020.

Citibank
1. Register your Citibank credit card as the payment method in the SOCAR app.
2. The coupon will be auto-issued to your coupon book.
3. Enjoy 15% off on your bookings made throughout December 2019 till 31
January 2020.

This promo is a lot better. 15% is great. The sad part is that it’s only applicable with two cards. So again, underwhelming. Maybe it’s our fault for expecting more from SOCAR. But given the stellar year that they had, we’re pretty sure our expectations are justified.

Anyway, to enjoy these “exciting promotions” during the festive holidays, you can log on HERE or download the app on the Google Play Store or Apple App Store.
