To determine what type of gift they have won and can redeem, all they need to do is check the design printed inside the bottle cap. This Carlsberg promotion is available from now until 6 February 2012 or while stocks last.
Soren Ravn, Managing Director of Carlsberg Malaysia, said, “The Lunar New Year celebrations give Carlsberg a wonderful opportunity to spread positivity among our consumers, as they gather with friends and family in the spirit of togetherness. This time around, with the dragon being such a magnificent figure, we are ushering in the year with an abundance of gold giveaways for our loyal consumers with the hope that it will lead to greater prosperity for them in the months ahead.”
“What’s more, our tagline “That calls for a Carlsberg” truly befits an auspicious celebration like Chinese New Year, and what better way to give back to our loyal consumers than by sharing good fortune with the traditional gift of gold.”
