Best Deals for Your Christmas Shopping with PayMaya


My Christmas is not cancelled.  


Even with the current situation, I still want to let my loved ones feel that I still think about them and appreciate them.  As much as I missed the Christmas Shopping Rush which I do on a yearly basis, the last-minute shopping, gift-wrapping and delivering of gifts!  I actually found a way to make things less stressful and even better amidst trying time.  


That’s how we are Filipinos, we see the good in everything and I am glad PayMaya is making it easier for us consumers to look at everything the brighter way!


Keep on reading as I share some of the Holiday Shopping Tips in the New Normal


1. Make Your List and Check it Twice:

In every Christmas Shopping, making a list will always be my Step 1.  It gives me more direction on how to sort out my budget and plan my shopping trips well (whether online or offline).  

2. Shop Online: 


This will be my number one choice and I am actually starting out as earlier this year.  Online shopping will always be my top priority for the safety of my family!


Bring out the list you’ve done on step 1 and categorize your “Holiday Gifts” to each member under “toys”, “clothing”, “electronics”, “food”, “beauty and skincare”, etc....  Categorizing what you plan to give to each recipient will make it easier for you to save up on shipping.  Let’s say you have 5 recipients under “Clothing”, then purchase clothes as gift in 1 online clothing store to save up on shipping fee, time and the environment (less plastic = happy Earth!)


And while at it, pay via PayMaya because users can get up to 100% Balik Bayad of up to Php500.00 when you use your PayMaya mobile number to pay for your purchases online.  You can also enjoy this perk with a maximum Balik Bayad of Php1,000 a month until January 31.  (Minimum purchase is Php500.00)

3. In-store shopping:


After shopping online, I will definitely be left with the “List” on stuff to buy that needed me physically in store to purchase!  (Note from author: Please do so with care and safety!  Please wear your mask and face shield!)  


And since I’m a PRO-Contactless shopper, you can pay via PayMaya QR #ScanToPay and you keep yourself safe at the same time you get deals!  

You can take advantage of 1%, 10% or 100% Balik Bayad of up to Php500.00 when you pay via PayMaya QR at your favorite merchants with NO minimum spend.  

And that’s not all, on top of that, here are more deals per merchant!


• THE SM STORE: Take home one of the 100 motorcycles being given away when you #ScanToPay at least Php1,500.00 at The SM Store until January 15, 2021.


• MEGAWORLD LIFESTYLE MALLS: Get an instant Php200.00 cashback when you spend an accumulated amount of Php2,000 plus a chance to win Php10,000 when you #ScanToPay at least Php500.00 using PayMaya QR at participating merchants in Megaworld Lifestyle Malls (Eastwood City, Lucky Chinatown Mall, Forbes Town, Southwoods Mall, Uptown Mall, McKinley Hill, Newport Mall, and Festival Walk Mall Iloilo) until January 10, 2021. You can enjoy the Php200.00 cashback reward twice during the promo period, for a total of Php400.00 savings!


• POWER PLANT MALL:  Get a chance to win up to P250,000 when you #ScanToPay via PayMaya QR at any partner merchant at the Power Plant Mall using The Rockwellist Mobile App. Just spend at least P2,000 to get a rafflle entry from December 1, 2020 to January 17, 2021”


And each time you #ScanToPay via PayMaya QR or Pay with your PayMaya mobile number online, you will get to earn a raffle entry to PayMaya’s PayMayaguinaldoraffle promo for a chance to win up to Php1,000,000.00 until January 10, 2021 !


    4.  Plan your delivery schedule (Whether you delivery by yourself or Ship Them Out)

It is expected with the Holiday rush that traffic will worsen and booking delivery apps will be more difficult than ever!  That’s why it is best to plan your shipments or deliveries early so you can be assured that your recipient will receive their Christmas presents before Christmas eve!


    5. Relax 

    Instead of hailing the Holiday Season as the most stressful season, why not turn it around and think of this season as a way to be creative on how to show your loved ones how much you love and appreciate them?  With a simple gift of “I know you love a cup of good coffee” to “Here’s me sending you your favorite bread just because #BreadIsLife and #YouAreMyLife?”  Cheesy yet these are simple ways that you can easily do and can make a person felt loved without much money involved!  



Best of all, you can do all these with the help of PayMaya. So if you aren’t using PayMaya app yet, what are you waiting for?  Download the app now using this link
