Thanks Dubai and DSF for the life-changing prize

Dubai, UAE - 31 December 2016:  It seemed like the end of the world for Joel Gutierrez, a Filipino national, when he lost his job recently, after working for 16 years in the UAE to look after his family back home. However, if the loss of his job came as a shock, Joel was stunned with what followed him later -  he won a luxury Infiniti car on the first day of Dubai Shopping Festival.

“It came as a huge surprise and the most beautiful thing about it was the timing, as I had just been informed by my office that my services were no longer needed. This will now help me build a new and happy life for me and my family,” said an elated Joel, whose wife and two children live in the Philippines.

Joel, who was employed as a salesman at a retail outlet, purchased an Infiniti Mega Raffle ticket for AED 200 and is now the proud owner of an Infiniti QX70, in addition to winning AED 150,000 in cash after his coupon was picked in the first Infiniti Mega Raffle draw.

Eventually, it was Joel's strong belief that he would win the DSF raffle one day that finally paid off.

“I always had a feeling that I would win. I had been purchasing raffle tickets and participating in other raffle promotions in the previous editions of DSF, and now my dream has come true. I wish to thank Dubai and Dubai Shopping Festival for this unexpected fortune,” he said.

43-year old Joel plans to use the cash to pay off his debts and then join his family in the Philippines to start life anew with the remaining prize money.
Since its inception in 1996, DSF has been offering life-changing prizes, and the festival's 22ndedition, which started on 26 December, is no different with daily raffle draws offering shoppers the opportunity to win incredible prizes.

The Infiniti Mega Raffle offers one lucky shopper the opportunity to an Infiniti QX70 plus AED 150,000 in cash every day upon purchase of a raffle ticket for AED 200. In the daily Nissan Grand Raffle, customers have the chance to win one of eight Nissan models  – Micra; Sunny; Sentra; Tiida Hatchback; X-Trail; Juke; Pathfinder; and Patrol. Customers will receive a raffle coupon upon purchase of non-fuel products worth AED 20 at any EPPCO and ENOC petrol stations, as well as Zoom shops in Dubai.

The gold and jewellery promotion run in collaboration with the Dubai Gold and Jewellery Group,   offers shoppers spending a minimum AED 500 at participating gold and jewellery outlets in Dubai the chance to win three fabulous gold prizes every day -  one shopper will win 1/2 kilo of gold, and two others will each win 1/4 kilo of gold. On the final day of DSF 2017, one shopper stands to win 1 kilo of gold.
