West Mall CNY 2024 – BT21-themed activities & promos
It’s that time of the year again where malls get decked out in CNY decor as far as the eye can see. If you’ve always chalked it off as obiang, West Mall is here to challenge that notion. Their Spring Into Prosperity With BT21 activities and promos include BT21-themed goodies up for grabs, sporting adorable designs in chic colours.
For the uninitiated, BT21 is the brand collab between LINE Friends and K-Pop idol group, BTS Whether you want to give out angbaos that will be the most sought after in every house you visit, or are a BTS A.R.M.Y adding some prized merch to your collection, you know where to go.
Score BT21-themed CNY essentials like angbaos & prosperity bags
Receiving angbaos is obviously a joy. Who doesn’t love free money? But there’s an unspoken contest of who gives out red packets with the chio-est designs. And even if you’re not in a stage of life where you have to hand them out yet – lucky you – special angbaos are great fun to collect.
Whether or not you’re a BTS fan, these BT21 angbaos are too cute to resist. The pastel shades are very in trend, and we can’t get enough of how each of the characters are dressed in dragon costumes to signify the Year of the Dragon.
From 5th January to 24th February 2024 onwards, you can redeem an 8-piece set of BT21 red packets by spending $108 across a maximum of 2 same-day receipts. Each design is printed with different CNY greetings, like “万事如意” (“May everything go as you wish”) and “龙年大吉” (“Fortune in the Year of the Dragon”).
You’ll need a handy little purse to stash all your angbaos in, and West Mall comes in clutch with their BT21 Prosperity Bags. They’re spacious enough to hold up to 6 oranges, making the perfect companion when you go house visiting. To get your hands on 1 of 7 designs, you’ll have to spend $208 across a maximum of 3 same-day receipts.
This also qualifies you to redeem 1 set of red packets. Plus, the bags contain special BT21 merch worth up to $125.
