eTunai Rakyat

The Malaysian government announced a RM 30 eWallet credit during the Budget 2020 Malaysia disbursement to eligible folks. Credits can be redeemed via the 3 major eWallet players, namely: Grab, Boost, and Touch ‘n Go (TnG).


However, please take note that you have to meet the following criterias in order to be eligible for this incentive:

  • Annual income of less than RM 100,000
  • At least 18 years old
  • A Malaysian Citizen
  • Only one redemption per person

Steps to redeem your RM 30

  1. You’ll need to have an existing eWallet account with the following eWallets:
    1. Grab Malaysia (AndroidiOS)
    2. Touch ‘n go (AndroidiOS)
    3. Boost Malaysia (AndroidiOS)
  2. After signing in, you’ll need to verify your account by taking a selfie (I know you’re good at this) together with your Identification Card (IC)
  3. Once the verification is done on the eWallet company’s end, you should be awarded with your RM 30 that will be credited into your eWallet

Boo boo

Initially, we wanted to redeem the eTunai via TnG, but hor, the api server timeout leh #sosad. We were so gung-ho that we’ve pre-verified our account before the 15th January, but even simple features like paying or receiving payment doesn’t load. Hint: maybe you need to review your modular mobile architecture and explore technologies like serverless/micro-services ><.

Si Lai’s choice of wallet

Leng si lai is eligible because si lai earns < RM 100,000 annually #sosad. We’ve decided to redeem it from Grab instead as they are throwing in a lot of complementary vouchers together with the successful submissions!

They boast to have approximately RM 1,000 – RM 3,000 worth of vouchers in this promotion. So it’s a no-brainer that redeeming from Grab makes a lot of sense from a si lai’s perspective. Please find the screenshots as below:
