From the telco that brought you plantable ang pows, here comes another interesting money packet for the coming festival of lights. This Deepavali, Maxis wants you to share the gift of light on your smartphone with Deepagrams.
This coming Deepavali, Maxis together with LINE will be sharing some festive cheer for needy children. There will be Deepavali theme stickers up for grabs and for each download, Maxis will be donating RM1 towards 10 children homes.
At the same time, they are also running a contest where you stand a chance to win Limited Edition 50cm LINE Head Dolls worth RM500 that’s exclusive to Maxis/Hotlink customers. For other subscribers, they are also giving out 18cm LINE Dolls as well. To participate, just head over to the Event section in the LINE app and share the Maxis Deepavali video. The contest runs from today until 31st October 2014.

DiGi is doing another promo in conjunction with the coming Deepavali festival. For DiGi Prepaid customers, they are giving 30 minutes free talk time between DiGi numbers for top ups of RM30 and above. This is only applicable for top ups between 2-4 November 2010. For DiGi Postpaid, DiGi-DiGi calls are discounted 30% from 9AM to 9PM on Deepavali Day. You can check out the FAQ for this promo here.
In this festival of light, DiGi is also doing a charity drive via SMS where the RM2 charged will be fully contributed for the sale of “Share the light” ringtone. All proceeds will go to the Total Empowerment Camp to improve students from less fortunate backgrounds. This is a much better charity drive compared to the last one they did during Hari Raya.

At first we wondered if this was a mistake considering the more info page showed RM999 for 24 months. Now just a day later, they have changed the price to RM999 which is the normal bundling price for the Nokia N8 over 24 months data contract. We wonder if Maxis honour the RM899 pricing for customers that wanted to take up the advertised price today.
Thanks to kenninaz for the heads up!
UPDATE: Maxis made a mistake with the pricing, the Nokia N8 is offered from RM999, not RM899 as advertised.
With the coming Deepavali Festival, Maxis is lighting it up with a special giveaway for handset bundling. They are giving out FREE NX1 Spore Speakers with purchase of Nokia N8, BlackBerry Bold 9700, HTC Wildfire, Samsung Galaxy S and Motorola Backflip.
Prices of handsets remain unchanged over 24 months contract except for Nokia N8 which is now on offer for
RM899RM999. That’s additional RM100 off from the normal 24 months contract pricing. This offer ends 7th November 2010.
