Smart Spending in Manila
When In Manila, we search for endless ways to deepen our pockets. Whether it be eating four cups of rice with three pieces of meat, or cutting out endless coupons from newspapers and magazines. Filipinos are known to be smart spenders and savings hunters.
Well now, you don’t need to stuff your mouth with too much rice just to save money! Thanks to the new East-West EveryDay MasterCard, you’ll find yourself saving money on so many of your daily purchases!
Save money on your grocery shopping. Get up to 5% cash rebates on any supermarket purchases! This means no more coupon getting, or buy-one-get-one for near expiration date items.
Also, city driving around the traffic filled city of Manila is something that absolutely takes a toll on my wallet as it slowly eats away my gas money. From stopping and going and stopping and going, sudden brakes followed by jolts of acceleration to avoid that crazy bus cutting in front of me, this all slowly (or seemingly quickly) takes a toll on my savings.
The CNN-Go rating of Manila as the 3rd worst city to drive in totally supports this point I’m trying to make!
As someone constantly on the go, gas consumption is a concern for me, a very big concern. We consume more gas with city driving rather than long distance driving, plus the traffic as we know it in Manila isn’t helping us save any more.
Now, you can definitely find ways to save with the new East-West EveryDay MasterCard that gives you up to 5% rebate on gas purchases. This is not limited to a particular merchant or a particular fuel type! So you can use this on any of your gas purchasing needs!
I mean really, rebates are one of the coolest inventions next to sliced bread! Just for purchasing your daily needs, like gas, East-West will give you cash rebates, just for using their card! How cool is that?! It’s almost like free money!
If you haven’t tried getting a card with benefits such as cash rebates, then let me tell you, it really comes in handy or it can also work as a bonus type of gift for yourself. Again, cash rebates are the way to go!
BUT that’s not all folks! (Queue cheesy infomercial music) If you call now… ok just kidding, but seriously, that isn’t all. Along with the great cash rebate on supermarket and gas purchases, you can also get up to 5% cash rebates on drugstore purchases as the East-West EveryDay MasterCard is an All-in-one-card!
You heard it right! Up to 5% cash rebates on drugstore purchases as well! With the flu season / rainy season coming by quick, imagine all the free money that’ll come your way just from using this card for your everyday drugstore needs! As always, you are not limited to any particular drugstore merchant!
A VERY simple condition on earning 5% cash rebate is to use the EastWest EveryDay for at least P10,000 on non-essential (non-supermarket, non-gas and non-drugstore) purchases. Or cardholders can earn either 3% or 0.5% on essential purchases if they spend on non-essential purchases of P5,000 to below P10,000, or below P5,000, respectively.
