PUCHONG, 19 November 2018 – Lelong.my (“Lelong”) handed the keys of a brand-new Proton X70 to a lucky customer at a prize-giving ceremony last Friday in conjunction with Lelong’s 20th anniversary, making him one of the first owners of the national carmaker’s first-ever SUV, which has yet to debut in the market.
A regular customer on the e-commerce platform, 39-year-old Denise Anak Julie from Sarawak was the grand prize winner of the “Shop and Win” contest, which was held to commemorate Lelong’s 20th year as Malaysia’s pioneering e-commerce giant.
Run from 13 August to 16 September; the contest was a big hit as customers needed to spend only a minimum of RM60 on the Lelong website or mobile app to stand a chance to win the exclusive grand prize.
Richard Tan, the co-founder and managing director of Interbase Resources Sdn. Bhd. that owns Lelong.my, reflected on Lelong’s journey. He said, “It has been a rewarding journey for us at Lelong.my these 20 years as the pioneering e-commerce marketplace in Malaysia. We are so grateful for all the continuous support from our partners and customers over the years. They are the ones that continue to drive us forward today, and these prizes are but a small gesture to thank them and show our gratitude.”
Held at the Lelong.my Education Centre at Puchong Financial Corporate Centre, the lively prize-giving event also saw many lucky participants from the “Shop and Win” contest rewarded with attractive prizes, including vacation getaway deals up to RM10,000.
Another 55 winners also won themselves prizes including Lelong.my’s exclusive 20th Anniversary Party Box, RM200 vouchers, Fujifilm Mini Instax 9, Mini Drones and TGV Indulge experience from social media contests that ran during the 20th anniversary campaign.
Lelong.my’s contests received an enthusiastic response from online buyers and attracted thousands of participating entries.
“The high number of responses reflects Lelong.my’s well-loved legacy as a homegrown brand. With our time-proven experience and expertise, we are still pushing forward; innovating our solutions to best meet the modern needs of business owners and consumers, for the next 20 years and more,” added Richard.
