DSF 2013 guide: Where to shop to win big

By Sneha May Francis

So, it’s now the season to splurge guilt-free. The Dubai Shopping Festival promises to be a month of shopping, fun and entertainment. And that’s not all. Apart from the discounts and the shopping that you get to take home, you are rewarded for your shopping with some stunning prizes.

This is clearly every shopaholic’s dream come true.

Every mall in the city allows you to enter raffle draws to win big money, gold and super-fast cars for every dirham you spend there.

We at Emirates24/7 map out the malls that will help you shop more and win big.

If swanky four-wheelers are what set your heartbeat racing, then trawling these malls should help.

For every Dh300 spent at Dubai Mall, you stand a chance to drive out the stunning Aston Martin Rapide.

For every Dh200 spent at BurJuman Centre, you could win a BMW X5. At the Town Centre Jumeriah, the same amount could win you two 2013 Toyota Rav4s. Mercato Mall and Ibn Batutta Mall are also rewarding shoppers with a chance to win a Toyota Rav4 and a Nissan for every Dh200 spent.

Buyers at Dubai Festival City could enter a draw to win a Toyota Land Cruiser with every spending of Dh150, while spending Dh250 at the Dubai Outlet Mall could bring you closer to winning a Nissan Pathfinder.

The other bigger draw is the money stash. Deira City Centre will give away a total of Dh1.3 million for customers who have shopped for Dh300 and more while Mall of the Emirates will also offer the same cash prize.

Shoppers at Oasis Centre stand a chance to play ‘Money Mania’ and win daily coupons and cash prizes.

Gold too is a big draw this year. Every Dh200 spent at Lamcy Plaza can lead customers into a weekly draw that could win two people 100 grammes of gold.

Weekend getaways and shopping vouchers can also be won.

A daily draw at Al Ghurair Centre gives out shopping vouchers or weekend stays, dining for two and spa treatments at Al Ghurair Rayhaan by Rotana, while Mirdif City Centre will pick three winners daily.

At Dubai Festival City, every Dh150 spent could win Dh1,000 worth of gift vouchers for three shoppers, while BurJuman (Dh200) spenders allows five people to win Dh10,000 in gift vouchers.


The families of newborn Shazah Fatima and Anaiya Sumaiya were the first winners of the daily Infiniti Mega Raffle and the Gold Mega Raffle.

Anaiya won an Infiniti JX 35 and Infiniti G25 , as well as Dh100,000 in cash, while Shaza won ¼ kilo of gold.

The newborn’s prize was collected by her father at a ceremony organised by the Dubai Gold and Jewellery Group.

The biggest draw of the DSF 2013 is the daily Infiniti Mega Raffle, which allows one lucky winner to drive away the Infiniti JX 35 and Infiniti G25, along with Dh100,000 in cash.

Raffle tickets of Dh200 can be purchased at select Eppco and Enoc petrol stations, kiosks at main streets, shopping malls and the Global Village.

The Dubai Gold and Jewellery Group gives shoppers an opportunity to enter the raffle draw for every Dh1,500 or more on gold purchases at any of the participating outlets across the city.  Every day, a quarter kilo of gold is being given away to one winner, while a kilo of gold awaits one shopper every week.

Alongside the gold promotion, a scratch-and-win campaign is being launched for shoppers who buy Dh1,000 worth of diamond jewellery to win prizes worth up to Dh2 million.
