He got the top-of-the-line Alpha variant.

Who would have thought that getting a brand-new car was as easy as shopping on Zalora? Yet that’s exactly what 35-year-old paralegal John Luciano did, and now he has the keys to his very own MG ZS Alpha as the grand prize winner in MG Philippines’ partnership with the online fashion store.

The promo was launched in December 2020, where customers only needed to enter a voucher code on every Zalora purchase to avail of a 25-percent discount, along with the chance to get an MG ZS. Winners were drawn last April 14, 2021.

Zalora is best known for cool and stylish clothing, characteristics that complement the MG ZS nameplate. All that John had to do was to plug the ZALORAMG voucher code in for a discount and raffle entry. Next thing he knew, he was already hailed as the lucky winner of a ZS in the range-topping Alpha variant.

“I always see the Zalora promos, Zalora MG, or Zalora ads whenever I shop. I received an SMS, a phone call, and an email from Mr. Anthony Ompoc of Zalora Philippines. First, I was shocked, I thought it was a scam. When I found out it was real, I felt so happy and blessed,” said Luciano.
