I'm shopping with Globe GCASH American Express Virtual Card... For one lucky reader!!!


CONTEST IS CLOSED.
Winner is Breena Estillore.

UPDATE! CONTEST EXTENDED TO DEC. 3! JOIN NOW! 

I'm not done with my birthday love, folks. Yep. Thanks to Globe GCASH American Express, I'm treating one lucky reader to an online shopping experience!

But first, let me do a definition of terms. GCASH is one of Globe Telecom's many services. It allows a GCASH user to pay for purchases and/or send money. It's like mobile banking! I've been a GCASH user for many many years. I buy and sell stuff on eBay and I love to shop online. But I hate hate hate lining up at the bank. So I'm probably one of the very first people who signed up for GCASH!

How GCASH works
GCASH allows my eBay customers to pay easily. They just "text" me money! On my end, I love how easy it is to confirm payment kasi GCASH sends me a text saying so-and-so sent me X amount of cash. The message also tells me the balance of my GCASH wallet. Which is very handy when I want to shop!

A lot of people ask me how I pay for my online purchases. Very easily because of GCASH for local merchants and PayPal for international sites. But now, because of GCASH American Express Virtual Card, I can use my GCASH funds to pay for practically anything in the world!

Why GCASH American Express Virtual Card is so amazing
Let me count the ways:

  1. It's a prepaid card so it consumes the money you already have in your GCASH wallet. It's not utang!
  2. You get a valid U.S. address and U.S. phone number courtesy of My Shopping Box! Many times when Vince and I shop (like when we bought an iPad and a Kate Spade bag during mega-sales), our Philippine-issued credit cards are declined. These merchants want to deliver only to U.S. territories. Not a problem anymore!
  3. It partnered with My Shopping Box, which delivers straight to your doorstep here in the Philippines. Vince and I are Johnny Air clients but we have to pick up our packages from Megamall. It would be really nice to have our purchases show up at our door!
  4. The annual fee of the virtual card is just P250!!! 
  5. You can shop from many major online merchants! Here are just a few of them:


Vince will test the card on Playstation and iTunes!
Watch for it on Third World Nerd!


What I bought with my very own GCASH American Express Virtual Card
As soon as I registered (very quickly!), I bought a Clarisonic Mia Face Cleansing Brush.


Hollywood celebrities like Nina Dobrev, Ashley Greene and Courteney Cox swear by this brush. And I really really really want to try it! But it's not available here. Now, thanks to my new virtual card, I can finally own one!

I can tell you that shopping with the virtual card is soooo easy. Super easy. Uh oh, this can be very bad for me haha. Anyway, I'll give a review on shipping costs and speed of delivery when the Clarisonic arrives. I'm expecting it in 10 days. Countdown starts now!

Let me shop for you with GCASH American Express Virtual Card!
Yes! You read that right! I'm giving one lucky reader PHP7,500 or US$182* worth of beauty products from Beauty.com. That's a LOT especially since I will use it to shop for your prize this coming Black Friday Sale on Nov. 23-25.

Choose from these prizes:





I'm so happy for whoever's going to be the winner!

  3. I want to buy the Clarisonic Mia 2 Sonic Skin Cleansing System. I believe that great skin is the best foundation. So as much as I want to learn basic make-up skills for every day use and some glam techniques for parties, I need to take care of my skin first. I'm entering my 30s next month, and I don't really want the haggard mommy look. So even if I'm just doing a quick errand, I want to look fresh and glowing, not pale and tired.

  4. In answering #2, does the item you want to buy have to be from the 3 products you posted as prizes? :-)

    1. I guess not. Basta P7500 and below with shipping. Shipping can cost a lot! So if you want to buy big/heavy things, dapat mas mura yung product.

  10. Hi Ms. Frances :)

    Wow! I'm definitely joining.
    And having read 'shopping', it already makes me feel ecstatic :)

    I want to buy the Clarisonic Mia 2 Sonic Skin Cleansing System this coming Black Friday.
    I've always wanted to improve my skin's condition and achieve that healthy and glowing skin. Battling impurities is difficult and doing it the traditional way takes a long time. As I've read reviews about this amazing product, I want to try it myself and see how sonic technology would work for me and my skin. And hopefully, I would have that blemish-free skin I've always dreamed of.

    Thank you Ms. Frances for having giveaways like this. A Merry Christmas to us all :)

  13. I was searching Google about Globe's AMEX card and I stumbled on your blog. :) I'm really happy with this post because it's very informative. I can't wait to buy from Amazon with my card. :) I've been using Gcash for 2 years and I'm so happy that Globe now offers this service. :D I think I'll be buying a lot of nail polishes.

    Anyway, from the list of items you posted, I definitely want to have the Clarisonic Mia. I've been reading great reviews about it and I want to try it. :) I have huge pores and a few acne marks, and I'm hoping the product would help me solve this problem.

    Thank you for this generous giveaway. Please do continue to write as you really inspire newbie bloggers like me. :)

  15. Hi Frances!

    Belated happy birthday. May all your wishes come true. It's so nice of you to have this birthday blow out for us regular followers of your blogs.

    I am always doing online shopping using my cc and definitely would like to try gcash american express. I am happy that I have relatives abroad who's always willing to send me the stuff to me when they send packages back home.

    I would like to buy the clarisonic skin treatment or the spa products. Well I dont have time to be out for a derma or spa treatment because i am full time breastfeeding mom and taking care of my preschooler so time is definetly precious and I am always on the go. Having it with me at the comfort of my home will be something anybody will wish for advance christmas gift.

    I am on my early 30s too and need to treat myself to keep looking good for my family.

    Hope my wish come true. Wish wish wish..

    Thanks

  38. Hi Frances!

    What I wanted to buy, based on your blog post, was the Mally Beauty Mama Indulgence Kit. But after checking out Beauty.com, now I want this: the T3 singlepass twirl curling iron. It's so ironic (pun intended! haha!) girls with curly hair want the straightening iron but girls with straight hair want the curling iron. :-) Good luck to me! And thanks for putting up this awesome contest!

    This coming Black Friday Sale, I want to buy a Michael Kors watch for my mom because her birthday is coming up (December 1). She has been eyeing on this for the longest time! She has been the best mom that any girl can have, and now that her little girl has grown up and bagged her first job, I want to give her a special treat to show her how grateful I am to have her as my mom. :)

  46. Answer this question in the comments below this post: What item do you want to buy online this coming Black Friday Sale?

    I want to buy an ipad mini for my Dad. He's not self-indulgent, and it's the least I can do for him. He brings me to work, and sometimes picks me up if I can go home with him. He does the menu planning, and even cooks on weekends. It's also not available locally, and we wouldn't have to disturb relatives and friends to buy it for us.
