Stretch your Christmas budget and #SpreadTheLove this Christmas with PayMaya’s exciting treats

As a homemaker, Christmas is always a challenging time. Trying to stretch my pesos to buy as many gifts for family and friends as well as Noche Buena ingredients for the Christmas table can get stressful. I’m not done with my shopping yet as of this post’s publication. Waaaaah!!!

But there’s one thing I’m excited about, especially since I’m a PayMaya account holder (have been one since it was introduced into the market). PayMaya wants to #SpreadTheLove this Christmas with exciting treats for all its account holders that are sure to maximize one’s shopping money and more!!!

Treat #2: Deeper-than-deep discounts at Lazada and Zalora

Do you shop at Lazada and/or Zalora? You know that many of their items are already deeply discounted. Well, get an additional 20% discount at Lazada for the whole month of December by using the code PYMYDEC. For Zalora, get the same additional 20% discount by simply entering the code PAYMAYAHOLIDAY upon checkout. The discount goes up to as much as 25% during Zalora’s Online Fever sale event from December 12 to 15 with the code PAYMAYAFEVER25.




Treat #3: Pay bills, buy load, and send money via Messenger

PayMaya collaborated with Facebook last September to allow you to do transactions via Facebook Messenger. Link your PayMaya account to Messenger and you will be able to pay bills, buy prepaid load at 5% discount, and send money to family and friends anywhere in the country regardless of network they are on (Smart, TNT, Sun or other mobile networks). Lines at payment centers can be horribly long this Christmas season so the convenience of being able to pay bills from your smartphone anywhere you are is super convenient.

Here’s more. For the month of December, pay your Meralco bills via Messenger and get a 10% rebate on your bill (up to a maximum of PhP 300).

Treat #5: Expanded list of loading partners and online banking platforms

More convenience is coming your way! PayMaya has expanded its loading partners to include Cebuana Lhuillier and Express Pay. It has also added RCBC and Metrobank to its online banking platforms.


New ways to load

That is on top of the more than 15,000 top-up facilities already available nationwide such as Robinsons Department Store Business Centers, SM Business Services, TouchPay kiosks, 7-Eleven, Palawan Pawnshops, Shopwise, Wellcome, 2Go outlets, Petron stations along NLEX, and Smart Padala centers down to sari-sari stores in grassroots communities, and Unionbank ATMs.

Looks like it’s going to be a merry, merry, PayMaya Christmas for account holders!

Personally, when I go (cram) shopping this season, I prefer to use my PayMaya load instead of my credit card because there are so many scams usually during this time of year. By using debit cards instead of credit cards, somehow it lessens my exposure to these scams as my exposure is only the extent of my PayMaya load balance. I also do not have to withdraw and carry around so much cash in my wallet. All I need is my physical PayMaya card or even better, just my digital PayMaya card already on my smartphone.

With the #SpreadTheLove promo of PayMaya, I have the digital convenience of this payment platform while maximizing my money through the different rebates and discounts during this season. That makes me happy!!!
