We all know that living in the city can be a bit rough on the wallet, especially if you’re still young. This is why it might be helpful to know some of the tips and tricks that can help to stretch your monthly wages to last longer. Curious to know any? Then read on to find out some of the ‘economical’ tips that fellow Malaysian millennials would use to survive living in the city.


1. Always utilise e-wallets so you can rake in the points

The great thing about e-wallets is that now, you can use them in pretty much every supermarket and hypermarket. By collecting these points, you can enjoy several benefits such as cashback, vouchers and discounts which will all give you bigger savings in the future.

Apart from the points, you can also use it as a budgeting tool. You can top up your e-wallet with a certain amount (eg: RM500 for one month worth of groceries) and make sure you only pay for grocery items with your e-wallet to stay within budget. This will help you keep track of your budget and avoid scenarios where your money ‘disappears’.


2. Wait for monthly sales to top up your necessities

Thanks to online shopping, we now have special sales every month (especially on 1.1, 2.2, 3.3 and so on)! These sales usually offer a bunch of deals and vouchers. Make sure to take advantage of this and spend on necessities such as toiletries, detergent, kitchen supplies, etc because this would definitely save you a ton instead of purchasing them at hypermarkets.


3. Sign up for membership at every place you like to shop

When it comes to luxuries like clothing, shoes or makeup, it can be a bit hard to control our wants. So, make sure to sign up for memberships at stores you frequent so you’d be able to receive special perks like birthday vouchers. This way, you can always remind yourself “I can wait for my birthday to buy this” instead of being tempted to spend all year long!


4. The My50 travel pass by RapidKL is a life-saver! 


For only RM50 monthly, you can:

  • Get unlimited rides for RapidKL’s rail (LRT, MRT, Monorail) and bus (BRT, Rapid KL) services for the whole month!
  • Save up to hundreds on toll, gas and parking fees.
  • Cut down on traffic time and get more stuff done on the train.
  • Conveniently reach the 10K steps per day goal.

Not only can you use them for the work commute, but you can also use them on the weekends to go to malls so you can save money and time on parking. In fact, some malls, like Tropicana Gardens Mall which is connected to the Surian MRT station, are highly accessible by train!


5. Limit yourself to only one streaming platform

Let’s face it, as working adults, we might not have that much time to indulge in binge-watching sessions anymore. This is why we believe that subscribing to only one streaming platform is more than enough! Most streaming platforms would actively add more shows/movies each month so it’d be impossible for you to run out of things to watch. If you’re subscribed to more than one, you’re most likely wasting money on something you don’t even utilise fully.


6. Take part in every shopping contest you encounter

In case you haven’t noticed, most shopping malls in Malaysia would often hold a shopping contest where the requirement to enter is simply to shop at their malls. This is a great opportunity because your spending can earn you a chance to win vouchers or prizes, which in turn will give you more bang for your buck!

Not to mention, this type of contest will also offer some amazing grand prizes, much like this one from Tropicana Gardens Mall!

From 21 Jan to 22 May 2022, Tropicana Gardens Mall is having their Multi-Million Mania – Win A Property contest where you can stand a chance to win a brand new Edelweiss SOFO unit worth RM519,000!

Apart from the grand prize of a new home, Malaysians can also stand a chance to redeem shopping vouchers worth up to RM1 Million! Doesn’t that sound super exciting? Without further ado, let’s find out how you can enter!

Daily Wins:

  1. To win the vouchers, customers need to spend a minimum of RM100 only (in a maximum of two receipts) to receive 1 token and 1 stamp on the entry card from the Multi-Million Mania Counter.
  2. The 1 token can be inserted into a vending machine where you can win a cash voucher worth RM20, RM50 or RM100.
  3. Do note that if you’ve spent RM500 on one single receipt, you will still receive only 1 token.


Contest Entry Card:

  1. The customer must obtain 10 stamps in order to be able to place their card in the Grand Draw Box.
  2. Spend RM100 and above on one receipt at Tropicana Gardens Mall to earn 1 stamp on your entry card. If you spend RM500 on one receipt, you will receive 1 stamp only!
  3. Each entry card = one entry to stand a chance to win the SOFO unit!
