Big winnings

During the Dubai Home Festival, spending big came with even bigger perks. Many of the city’s malls and retailers added a layer of fun to their shopping experience with exciting raffles and unbelievable prizes up for grabs. At Mall of the Emirates, Virgin Radio’s Kris Fade, Priti Malik and Big Rossi dove head first into unusual circumstances as they lived out of a glass box for five days. Each day, their temporary home was decked out by one of the mall’s leading interior retailers and one lucky winner got to take home the collections on display. And one very lucky winner won the mega prize of a brand new, fully-furnished studio apartment at Starz by Danube Properties. That wasn’t all – The Dubai Mall, City Centre Mirdif, Ibn Battuta Mall and more presented exciting Spend and Win offers for shoppers where they walked away with everything from Skywards Miles to luxurious hotel stays.
