Grab’s CNY promo code lets you gift Grab-sponsored red packets to drivers

Grab’s CNY promo code lets you gift Grab-sponsored red packets to drivers

Want to do something nice this weekend? From 26th to 27th January 2017, Grab passengers can gift S$8.88 digital red packets to their lucky Grab drivers – it’s on Grab, so you’ll only be paying for your fare while doing something nice for others.

By entering the promo code “XIEXIE” (along with a simple thank you note) when booking a trip, the assigned driver would be credited with the red packet. As mentioned above, the Grab passenger will only pay for the trip, and the red packet will be coming from Grab’s pockets instead.

All Grab passengers can gift an unlimited number of red packets for the duration of this event, with a maximum daily cap of 5,500 red packets distributed within the network. According to Grab, both GrabTaxi and GrabCar drivers clocked a total of 83,120 hours on the road during last year’s Chinese New Year. It won't hurt to be generous - without actually spending an extra cent.

Grab has also collated a few CNY “tips”, based on their CNY transport data from last year. We’d take it with a pinch of salt, of course:

  • The luckiest time to travel is between 8 – 9A.M. and at 6P.M. on both days of Chinese New Year.
  • The most visited places during Chinese New Year are Mustafa Centre, VivoCity, and Nex.
  • The odds of meeting a benefactor or growing your network are highest when you GrabShare to Bedok, Tampines and Hougang.
