I am soooo excited about this annual event because it is the time of the year when prices of our most sought after items in stores and online are sold at really HUGE DISCOUNTS! It is the perfect opportunity to start scouring online stores for clothes, gadgets, accessories, and more!
If you follow me on Twitter and here on my blog, you probably already know that I am very comfortable shopping online using my GCash American Express Virtual Pay… not only because of convenience, but also because you save a whole lot more ordering online. Imagine just how much more you can save during Black Friday!
If food is the way to a man’s heart… then being with my wife has taught me that the way to a woman’s heart (apart from the obvious – diamonds and flowers) is through shoes and bags.
But getting my wife a pair of shoes is quite tricky for me. I could never seem to grasp her taste… and there’s also the trouble of getting her the correct shoe size but NOT the right fit.
So, what’s a guy to do to get some much needed “pogi points” from the missus?
Simple. Get her a bag instead! And that’s exactly what I did. I went online to check out some really cool bags which I knew my wife would easily fall in love with. And because I know that she has a thing for anything “Ralph Lauren”, choosing which brand to get her was a no-brainer.
Knowing that I can effortlessly purchase items online using my GCASH American Express Virtual Pay, I immediately headed to Zappos.com to see if there were a good number of RL bags to choose from. To my pleasant surprise, not only were there a ton of RL bags… some of them were on an unbelievable SALE!
After going through a vast Ralph Lauren selection, I eventually found this really cool looking Ivory-colored RL bag! Alas! I knew… this was it!
The “Ralph Lauren Bembridge N/S Tote Ivory” bag!
It was on sale and being sold for only $94.99 (original price is $158.00)! They were also selling it in a limited color that I was confident my wife didn’t have yet.
It is a US ISSUED virtual American Express debit cardthat is seamlessly linked to your GCash account! It uses the funds you have inside your GCash account to purchase items online!
In a nutshell, Globe understands the difficulty Filipinos encounter when it comes to online shopping especially when accessing US-based merchants/sites. Some merchants require you to have a valid US address… a few do not even ship outside the country. Some ship abroad, but freight charges usually cost an arm and a leg (Ouch!)
I know what you’re probably thinking right now. Don’t worry even the slightest bit because GCash American Express Virtual Pay is ABSOLUTELY SAFE! In fact, I’ve been using it for quite sometime already. It is even my enrolled credit card on my US iTunes account so I can purchase iOS apps that are exclusive only to the US market. It’s THAT cool!
