Remember Green Shield Stamps? From what we know, these stamps were once famous in Britain (not sure about now though). Did they have something similar here in Malaya back in the 60s and 70s?

It could be the Green Shield although I can’t be 100% sure. Year could be around 1977/78. Ngai C O November 18, 2016 at 5:46 pm - Reply Hi, My late wife used to collect them. She also received Luncheon Vouchers from her company, I think weekly. This was quite popular at one time in the late 80’s as I remember we used them to pay or part pay our food. On reading up just now, it is still used. The article also said a London brothel used to accept the luncheon vouchers for prostitution services. Coming back to these Green Shield stamps, I vaguely remember a very similar promotional scheme in Malaysia at one time. One would collect the stamps from certain products and fill up the blanks of a card. Once completed, the card could be exchanged for certain items during the promotional period.

The concept seemed to be similar to credit card points, frequent flier scheme, BonusLink, and the promotions offered by various shops, supermarkets, etc. to reward loyal customers.
