Hi everyone, did you miss me? Sorry for being on hiatus for the longest time. Hope everyone’s doing great!
Anyway, I was one of the lucky ones to have been invited to the Metrocard Prepaid Card launch last month.
Totally digging their Press Kit with my name on it. I also love their tagline — Live Without Regrets — it should be my life mantra.
Since it’s a pre-paid card, you’re in control of how much you spend. I think this is perfect for people who like to keep track and stay on top of their finances. It’s also a great way to build good money habits as opposed to just swiping away and forgetting about your credit card cut off dates and credit limits, yikes!
Since it can conveniently be used both as a pre-paid (sort of like a debit card/ATM card) and a credit card (mastercard) at the same time, you don’t have to worry about bringing a lot of cash with you all the time. I’m really happy about being able to use it in restaurants since most of them don’t accept debit cards. Oh, and did i mention you can even use it abroad! Just make sure to load it up via Metrobank’s ATM, Online, or Phone Banking. You can even withdraw your cash anytime :)
With Tricia~ I swear we didn’t plan our matchy-matchy white outfits. The #Trissey connection cannot be explained.
So glad to have finally met Ira Giorgetti, Tracy Ayson, and David Guison.
The food served was glorious! Make sure to try out VYNE when you’re in the Fort area.
David and I wanted to take a shot with the ceiling…but failed. Hello silhouettes!
With Isabel Trinidad.
Hello, new blogger friends!
Obligatory #trissey mirror shot before leaving the event.
I am one of the many people who appreciate the convenience of online shopping so I naturally had to try online shopping for my first purchase using my Metrobank Prepaid Card.
Dress from Yesstyle.com ~ One of my favorite online stores since they have super fast shipping (door-to-door delivery).
Very smooth transaction. Hopefully, they’ll be able to partner up with Paypal in the near future. Suddenly, the possibilities of online shopping became endless *_* This is perfect for students who want to shop online but don’t really have access to credit cards (it’s for your own good!). At least by using this prepaid card, you can use your own savings to purchase stuff you want :) No need to rely on your parents! All you have to do is save up and load up! Since the card isn’t connected to any bank account, you don’t have to worry about wiping out your savings (just wiping out your allocated budget for the card, lol). 101% safe to use online!
Next purchase was in Le Bunny Bleu. Everything was on 50% off at that time — lucky me!
With Keita, my forever shopping buddy! hehehe.
Got two pairs both at 50% off! What an offer!
Very smooth and quick transaction. Exactly like a credit card but you have to input your PIN like when you purchase using a debit card.
Best part is that you can avail of the card sans the initial deposit most, if not all banks require. No need for a maintaining balance as well! :) It’s super easy! All you have to do is fill up the Metrobank Prepaid Card registration form, present 1 or 2 valid ID’s (Government ID if you’re no longer a student) and lastly, pay P100 for the card which is valid for 3 years. Easy peasy!
Let the shopping, commence!
