Let’s face it – we all love a good deal. No matter how much we earn or how much pocket money we have, we often gravitate to value deals and cheaper (but good quality!) stuff simply because we get to save some coins while buying or subscribing to something. Here are our little tips on how you can get more bang for your buck!
- Watch movies on Wednesdays
Watching movies can be expensive but we have the tried and true trick – movie tickets on Wednesdays (in Malaysia, especially) are about 25% cheaper compared to other days. Since it’s midweek, you are probably more likely to get good seats too!
- Grab set lunches on weekdays
We understand weekends are to spend time and step out with loved ones, so we suggest keeping lunch simple and fuss-free on weekdays. Most restaurants have a set lunch menu – in the heart of KL, our set lunches usually cost us around RM10 to RM15 a pop, including drinks and if we’re lucky, dessert too!
- Cancel your cable TV
Don’t have time for TV? Then we recommend you cancel your cable TV subscription, and explore video-on-demand apps instead. Worried you’ll miss out on sports? Livestream online or better yet, watch the important games at a friend’s house (remember to contribute snacks and drinks, though!).
- Student discounts FTW!
Got a cousin/niece/nephew/friend who is still in university? Go on, be best friends with them! You don’t only get food and cinema discounts, but also discounts for MacBooks and iPads, clothes, entertainment outlets – even the Malaysian Philharmonic Orchestra offers student card discounts!
- Shop ‘til you drop – when there are sales
Malaysia is the land of shopping malls and sales! Year End Sale, Mega Sale Carnival, Chinese New Year sale, Hari Raya sale…the list is quite possibly endless. Most things, especially stuff like accessories and shoes, are usually heavily discounted during sales.
- Start a book club with friends
Love books but hate the prices? Here’s an idea: why not start a book exchange with your friends? That way, everyone gets a chance to read something highly recommended and different, and no extra bucks needed!
- Make use of free WiFi
Data usage got you paying high bills? We stick to this rule: when there’s WiFi, ask for the password. The connection would probably be faster, and you can save your data for the times you really need it!
