Grab loves notifications

This is a part of our Cambodia forums to chat about anything Cambodia-related. This discussion forum is at the top of our site because it's usually the busiest part of the expat community chatter with random topics on just about everything, including expat life, Khmer politics, Cambodian blogs we have or have come across, or whatever else our members want to discuss. Whether you're an expatriate, tourist, Cambodian or random traveler just passing through South East Asia, you are welcome to talk about anything or start new topics yourselves.

Grab loves notifications

Post by fax » Mon Aug 12, 2019 7:25 am

Grab loves sending notifications. There is no app that sends so many notifications as Grab. They have recently hired a professional notification sender who really knows how to send notifications.

2 notifications about an iPhone promotion at 3am on the weekend and then 2 more at 6am for good measure. Notifications every day at 6am about some bullshit.

Don't you just love Grab's notifications? Which one is your favorite?

I was just noticing the same thing this morning. The iPhone promotion has arrived 6 times at least. I notice also their tuk tuk promotion is now only after the first ride of the day, by the time I am on my second ride it is often all used up.

I am blocking all notifications from now on, I think they will still be there on the app but at least my phone wont start chiming 4 times a day with their iPhone crap.

And another thing, that Ride and Win promo gives you a 1 Riel discount and also stops you from using any other promotion such as 15% off Tuks or 25% off cars and SUV's. What a load of bullshit.

1 Riel that is hilarious.

I rarely bother with the promotions because you have to either remember the code to enter it in or follow their highly intuitive menu structure.

1. Load map
2. Close review page for a ride you took yesterday
3. Back to map
4. Press Inbox
5. Identify the correct one and they're all named "Message from Grab" and the text is in Khmer
6. Scroll past all the Khmer and press "Use now"
7. Load map

Brilliant user experience.

Just turn off notifications in the App's settings.
No matter how much it rains, the dirt never washes away.
