We are all familiar with group buying sites, aren’t we? You check what’s on promo and you impulsively go on a buying spree… regardless if you’re on a tight budget or not.
The “Hurry! Get it now at dirt cheap prices before stocks run out!” approach that group buying sites use to promote their merchant’s products compel YOU, the potential buyer, to frantically grab your credit card and buy-buy-buy. A marketing ploy that mentally conditions you to act now and worry later.
In the end, you’re left with expiring vouchers you haven’t found time to use, products you purchased out of WANT and not out of NEED, and in most cases – the dreaded credit card debt that keeps you up at night wondering how to pay back.
Apart from the unnecessary stress caused by debt which you could have easily avoided, what you get in exchange for dirt cheap prices are, more often than not, compromised quality of services.
Localroam offers prepaid vouchers with huge discounts on products and services that range from travel packages to health and wellness treatments. Payments for these prepaid vouchers may be conveniently made through BPI Express Online, or at any BPI branch nationwide.
My wife and I had the pleasure of being at the Localroam media launch earlier. We, together with a few individuals from traditional and social media, were introduced to this new cooperative buying platform which is similar in some ways to the usual group buying structure BUT BETTER in every way because of how partner merchants are handpicked as well as they way their commodities are offered out.
