The Malaysia Mega Sale Carnival is back! This year, it started on 5th July and will run up to 1st September. That’s 59 days and nights (as most Malaysian shops close at 10.30pm daily!) of shopping and bargain-hunting. Everything is on sale everywhere — clothes, shoes, hand bags, sector watches, golf sets, electrical items, kitchenware. Discounts are up to 70% off. For instance, designer items like Gucci and Coach offer winter season items for clearance at 50% off at the newly launched Pavilion shopping mall in Jalan Bukit Bintang. Samsonite travel bags — which rarely go on sale — are offered at 40% discount in Isetan at Suria KLCC.
If you are a MasterCard holder, great discounts and special offers await you all over Malaysia in a number of leading malls such as:
- Mid Valley Megamall
- The Gardens
- Pavilion Kuala Lumpur
- Sunway Pyramid
- Sunway Carnival
- Jusco 1 Utama Shopping Centre
- AEON Bukit Tinggi Shopping Centre, Klang
- Jusco Queensbay Mall, (Penang)
- Kinta City Shopping Centre (Ipoh) and
- AEON Tebrau City Shopping Centre (Johor)
No MasterCard? No problem. Just present your passport to apply for a Tourist Privilege Card at KLIA (Kuala Lumpur International Airport), major hotels and shopping malls to entitle you to a special 5% discount for your purchases.
So postpone that trip to Europe or the Bahamas for a while and book a flight to Malaysia instead. Make sure you bring along some empty suitcases to fill up with all your shopping. Or just buy yourself a whole new set of bags while you’re at it! :D
