KUALA LUMPUR, 8 MAY 2020 - U Mobile announced today that with Movement Control Order guidelines easing, the telco has come up with several promotions that provide even more value to customers as they navigate the new normal. Top on the list of its Giler BagiLebih campaign is GoInsure 3, a Personal Accident (PA) insurance product, which will be offered free to all of its eligible customers who are Malaysians or Permanent Residents - existing and new, postpaid and prepaid. This initiative is a first for a telco in Malaysia. GoInsure 3 will be bundled with all its telco plans and it is especially relevant now as it also offers additional coverage for COVID-19.

Apart from GoInsure 3, the telco is offering up to 20% discounts on monthly access fees across its Giler Unlimited (GX) plans (with the exception of GX 30). Customers who sign up for its GX 50 postpaid plan from today onwards will enjoy it for RM40 monthly for 12 months, instead of RM50. This is on top of existing promotions for its GX 68 postpaid and GX 38 prepaid plan where new customers are able to enjoy the plans at RM58 and RM35 respectively when they sign up.

The third promotion under Giler BagiLebih campaign will see customers receiving a free upgrade to an iPhone 11 128GB when they purchase the iPhone 11 64GB with either Unlimited HERO P139 or Unlimited HERO P99. Depending on the chosen plan, customers may enjoy savings of up to RM1600 with this promotion.
