HP offers more reason to be jolly in the recent festive season with a Supermarket Sweep for its customers
Up to 14 winners got a chance to grab all they could in HP’s Ho-Ho-Yeh contest

MALAYSIA, Kuala Lumpur, 5 March 2012 – HP Malaysia’s, Personal Systems Group (PSG) rang in the recent festive season with a supermarket sweep worth nearly RM50,000 for 14 lucky contest winners at Tesco Mutiara Damansara recently.

To participate in the HP Ho-Ho-Yeh contest, customers simply needed to purchase certain models of HP notebooks or desktop PCs from authorised HP resellers during the November–December period.

The winners were placed in three categories: Category 1 for purchases worth under RM1,999; Category 2 for purchases worth between RM2,000 and RM3,499; and Category 3 for purchases worth RM3,500 and above.

Category 1 winners were entitled to a two-minute sweep worth up to RM2,000 while Category 2 winners got a two and a half minutes sweep worth up to RM3,000. Category Three winners, on the other hand, were entitled to a three-minute sweep worth up to RM5,000.

Making an impressive haul was Siew Yoke Mei, who was eligible for the RM5,000 limit.

She said that strategic planning was crucial to her netting items worth a total RM5,024.

“I came to the store with my husband a day before the actual supermarket sweep and we had noted down exactly which items to go for,” she said.

Siew focused her attention to the electronics section where she managed to take home a TV, Blu-ray disc player, notebook computer and a digital camera, among other electronic items.

“I do grocery shopping every week and I know how much time it takes to shop. There is no way I could go to all the other sections within the time limit so I only focused on one area which was the electronics section,” she added with a satisfied grin.

Vishnu Appanah also had a chance to take home up to RM5,000 worth of goods but only managed to grab about half that value.

“I ran out space in my supermarket trolley and had to get another one. This took time so I couldn’t take more items,” he explained.

Nonetheless, Vishnu, who purchased an HP EliteBook 8450 to participate in the HP Ho-Ho-Yeh Supermarket Sweep contest, still managed to grab a flatscreen TV as well as a number of other household items.

“I’m very happy with what I managed to get especially since it’s the festive season at the moment. I will be able to enjoy all the items I got with my family over the holidays and that’s more than I could ask for,” Vishnu said.

Another contest winner who planned her strategy before the actual supermarket sweep was Masrifah Norhafidah Abu Massuut.

“I came to the store last night to survey the place and did my planning beforehand,” she said.

“As they sounded the buzzer indicating my turn to start, the first thing I did was go for the TV set located to the left of the entrance,” Masrifah, who purchased a HP Pavilion g4 notebook to qualify for the contest, added.

Unlike Siew who focused on the electronics section, Masrifah also managed to grab a number of household items from the other sections of the supermarket and took home a total of RM2,249 worth of goods.

Generally, the contest winners found the supermarket sweep a lot of fun.

They said that it was great to see that a company like HP rewards its loyal customers, and especially so on such festive seasons like Christmas and Chinese New Year.

For the 14 lucky contest winners, it was a great way to start the new year.
