Hooray! I can now really recommend the GCASH American Express Virtual Card + My Shopping Box experience because it really truly does work!
So I bought a Clarisonic Mia on November 16. On November 19, it arrived at "my" US address in California. I authorized its shipment, meaning I paid for it, also with my GCASH American Express card. The fee already includes taxes and duties so I didn't have to get scared of hidden charges.
There were 2 kinds of shipping offered: air and sea. Air was double the cost but because I was so excited, I chose the to pay the $18 fee. Then because I used GCASH American Express, I even got a discount!!!
Ten days later, my box arrived! Not bad at all. I like how easy the whole process was. I like that I paid for the shipping fee with my GCASH American Express card and that I got a discount. I like that there's no hidden charges. I like that my Clarisonic Mia was delivered straight to my doorstep!!!
Now, remember that I have a fabulous promo where I promised I'd buy one lucky reader beauty products* from Beauty.com using my own GCASH American Express virtual card?
