I remember back when I was in my schooling days, I couldn't sleep early (...well more like I didn't want to) and I would be up till about 4.30AM or even 5.00AM, and would head out for class at 7.00AM the next day.
Well if you were like me, then welcome to the club -- alongside another 89% of Malaysians with insomnia. Gah...
So what's up now is that AIA Bhd. has launched a sleep tracking benefit via its AIA Vitality programme that rewards members for sleeping longer -- well, generally to help Malaysians live Healthier, Longer and Better Lives la...
AIA is taking one step further in raising awareness on the importance of sleep.
So this is how it works for AIA members...
The new sleep tracking benefit rewards members with 10 AIA Vitality points per day (annual cap of 2,000 points per membership year) if they achieve a minimum of 420 minutes or seven hours of accumulated sleep within a 24-hour period.
The hours can be tracked by syncing the AIA Vitality mobile application to a fitness tracking device such as Fitbit, Garmin and Misfit. The device records the amount of sleep a person gets by accumulating their sleeping hours, beginning from 12.00PM to 12.00PM the following day.
Heng Zee Wang, Chief Marketing Officer of AIA Bhd. (left) explaining that the sleep tracking benefit is the easiest way for members to earn points and receive better rewards.
"With the extra hours of sleep, members can achieve a higher AIA vitality status, thus unlocking even greater rewards such as additional insurance or takaful coverage and discounts from our various partners,” he says.
If you're considering about being an AIA member to participate in the programme, all you gotta do is pay up the RM10/month membership fee.
Oh, in case you guys are curious about AIA's Benefits, AIA Vitality is partnered with AirAsia, BP Healthcare, Fitness First, Guardian, Jaya Grocer, TGV Cinemas, and many more.
