Winning in the Shell Cash Contest has given me an opportunity to help them and those who are less fortunate,” Mr Tay said.

The father of three, said that found that Shell fuels is very reliable and keeps his car engine in good shape. “I’ve been a loyal Shell fuel and lubricant user for the past 21 years and not only does it give me superb performance, but it it also gives me extra kilometres to take me further.

According to Mr Choe Foo Lung, Regional Retail Manager, Sabah, Shell Timur Sdn Bhd, “Shell has a long and proud history of offering rewards and benefits to Malaysian motorists, and what better way to celebrate this festive and holiday travel season than by giving them a chance to go further with weekly cash prizes from Shell”

In line with this, the Shell RM100,000 Weekly Cash Contest has returned with more opportunities to give back to customers, the heart of the brand. This campaign not only puts spending money in people’s wallets but also provides them with an opportunity to make a significant change to their savings account, investment or retirement fund or even loan and debt management.”
