M’sia mega sale is back

The Malaysia Mega Sale nationwide campaign is back after a four-year hiatus due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

In Sabah, the sale will run from June 15 to July 31, 2024, said Tourism Malaysia Sabah Deputy Director Trecey J Tojuka.

Tourism Malaysia Sabah Office is collaborating with four participating shopping malls in Kota Kinabalu, namely Imago Shopping Mall, 1Borneo Hypermall, Suria Sabah, and Karamunsing Shopping Complex,

She said that Tourism Malaysia Sabah is also initiating an incentive activity for shoppers through a partnership with the Sabah International Convention Centre (SICC).

“With a single receipt of RM500 spent, shoppers are entitled to receive a meal voucher worth RM50 to be used at the Meranti Café in SICC, valid until August 31, 2024,” said Trecey.

The diners will also stand a chance to win lucky tour packages from a draw of their ticket stubs, she added.

The first prize is a three-day, two-night stay in Danum Valley, sponsored by Borneo Nature Tours, for two people, including return air tickets from Kota Kinabalu to Lahad Datu.

The second prize is a three-day, two-night stay at Mulu Benarat Lodge, sponsored by Intrepid Travel (Malaysia) Sdn Bhd with return air tickets from Kota Kinabalu to Mulu.

The third prize is a trip to Labuan with accommodation at Tiara Hotel. All air tickets are sponsored by MASwings.

“Through the Mega Sale campaign, we hope to attract more consumers to shop in the malls, as many people have been shopping online since the onset of the pandemic.

“We also hope to attract more foreign visitors to the malls, making their holidays in Malaysia a value-for-money destination aligned with the national slogan ‘My Priceless Experience,'” she said.

This year, the campaign will be held twice, namely Malaysia Mega Sale (June 15 – July 31, 2024) and the Year-End Sale (November 15 – December 31).

For 2025 and 2026, the national sales campaign will be held three times a year, namely Malaysia Super Sale on March 1-31, Malaysia Mega Sale on June 15 – July 31, and Year-End Sale on December 15-31.

“These programmes are designed to attract both domestic and international tourists, creating added value while travelling in Malaysia,” she said.

Tourism, Arts, and Culture Minister Datuk Seri Tiong King Sing, who launched the programme last week, said the initiative is expected to have a significant impact of RM102.7 billion in tourism revenue for 2024.
