Every 31st of a month, I will usually buy Baskin Robbins ice cream. This is during this day, Baskin Robbins gives 31% discount.
During MCO Baskin Robbins Bukit Jelutong Only Open At 12:00PM
But during this MCO (Movement Control Order), the ordering process changed and confused lots of people. Yesterday on 31st of May on 10:00 AM, I went to Baskin Robbins Bukit Jelutong at Petronas.
I already saw long queue at the ice cream parlour but it was still not open and nothing signage regarding the opening hours.
Then I went to Jaya Grocer to buy groceries when I checked back at 10:40 AM the parlour still closed, I decided to go to Aeon Shah Alam Baskin Robbins.
Long Queue at Baskin Robbins Aeon Shah Alam
When I arrived at 11:00AM at Aeon Shah Alam, there was already long queue.
Walk-In Order Only Pint or Quart
To my dismay, I could only buy at most quart size. Half gallon is not available for walk-in. Besides, if you choose quart, you can only select one flavor.
My Ice Cream Stocks till June 31st 2020
I bought 3 flavors of ice creams.
- Cotton Candy – for my kids
- Mint Choc Chips – for my wife
- Jamoca – for myself
Half Gallon 31% Discount Available at Lazada
At night around 11:00 PM, I checked if Lazada got Baskin Robbins 31% promo. Last March 31st, Baskin Robbins only offered their 31% discount at Lazada. You had to buy the e coupon then redeem at the counter.
To my surprise, the coupon for half gallon was available.
However, you could buy the coupon on 31st May but can only redeem it on 1st June onward and valid for 3 months.
Received e-Voucher via Email
You will receive an e voucher similar like this via email where you can redeem it within 3 months.
Show the e voucher at Baskin Robbins counter to redeem your ice cream. Of course it shows value RM111.50 but in actual fact you just pay RM76.94
Yeah My Half Gallon
This is my half gallon that I bought at Lazada.
Anyway this is more efficient way to get 31% discount by buying it first at Lazada then can redeem it any hours within 3 months. It avoids long queue at Baskin Robbins.
However the problem is on information diffusion where lack of info at Baskin Robbins website or even at their outlet signage. They should improve on this.
