Maxis customers who sign up online on the company's website will receive a complimentary Razer SWAG pack, which consist of a Razer Hammerhead Bluetooth headset, Razer Chroma mug, Team Razer Coaster and a Team Razer t-shirt. U Mobile is giving away the same SWAG pack but with some extra 100 Razer Gold (worth RM 100) for the first 500 U Mobile customers from any U Mobile store, and an extra Team Razer lanyard + 100 Razer Gold for the first 50 customers in Berjaya Times Square.
