When Touch ‘n Go began providing alternative locations (besides the toll plazas) to top up the balance in the electronic toll payment card, there was a 50-sen charge for each transaction. Over time, the charge was waived by some outlets although there are still some that still do it.
Shell Malaysia believes every bit counts in the long run and to help Malaysians save some money on living expenses, the company has announced that effective today, 27 of its stations along the North-South Expressway (NSE) will waive the RM0.50 top-up fee.
“Shell understands the challenge Malaysians face against the rising cost of living. We know it can be difficult to save when there are inclining necessary expenditures like food, transportation, utilities and education, which form a huge part of one’s expenditure. This drives us to help Malaysians save more and ultimately, get more out of their journeys. Hopefully, forgoing the Touch ‘n Go top-up charges at all stations along NSE, as a start, will give our customers one less worry when travelling or fuelling up at Shell during long journeys,” said Shairan Huzani Husain, MD of Shell Malaysia Trading Sdn Bhd and Shell Timur Sdn Bhd.
He said that Shell Malaysia is always looking at ways and means to reward its customers. Throughout 2019, Shell launched several campaigns that gave away prizes from cars to loyalty points. Back in September, Shell gave away 3 BMW X3s through its WIN 3 BMW X3 campaign. This was followed up with the offer of 10x BonusLink points collection with every one litre of fuel purchased as well as a 50% rebate for BonusLink points redeemed.
The current campaign is ‘Nak Ekstra RM20,000?’ which runs until February 9, 2020. Malaysians have a chance to win weekly grand prizes of RM20,000 and 20 consolsation prizes of RM1,000. These cash giveaways aim to enable Malaysians to be a step closer to fulfilling needs and dreams for themselves and their loved ones.
“These initiatives represent our commitment towards Malaysians and their journeys on and off the road. We at Shell are equally passionate for creating life-enriching opportunities for Malaysians, just as we are about providing high-quality fuels and products that help our customers get more out of their journeys,” Encik Shairan said.
