Acer will be hosting their upcoming Acer Day celebrations which herald a wallet-demolishing onslaught of tempting deals, promotions, freebies and more leading to, after and on August 2nd 2020 along with a huge bundle of gifts when you buy the new Helios 300 and Helios 700 gaming laptops.
The biggest difference this time around, seeing the new normal, is that Acer Day will be held virtually rather than the customary road shows though there’s no shortage of bargains to be had.
Taking place slightly after Acer Day, Acer is holding a 3-day Super Brand Day on Shopee from 2nd to 4th August 2020 on Shopee. During this special window of time, Acer will host insane 83% off deals, Shopee vouchers worth RM200 and more. Check out Acer’s store on Shopee here.
On Acer Day itself on 2nd August at 3PM on Acer Malaysia’s Facebook page, Acer will showcase performances by local celebrities that include Pong Pong, Cikidot and Linora as well as lucky draw sessions worth more than RM22,000 including the new Predator Helios 300 and Predator Triton 700 up for grabs.
Just to make things more interesting, Acer is adding a host of new bargains that include an additional “Buy and Win Lucky Draw” which has a separate prize pool worth more than RM26,000 with winners chosen on Acer’s Facebook page in August and September 2020.

There is also a unique ‘Feel the Vibe’ dance competition where aspiring dancers can upload videos with the #feelthevibewithAcer hashtag while tagging @my-acer on Instagram and Facebook with the chance to win a Concepts 3 Pro notebook and RM1,000 in cash.
The song to dance to will appear on TIktok from 2nd August onwards and no purchase is needed to participate with the contest running till 31st August 2020.
