In the Philippines, three things indicate that the Ber months have finally kicked off:
- Malls install Christmas decor and “holiday sale” teasers
- You start computing your 13th month pay
- You start seeing girls and boys selling lanterns on the streets, and remember the child in the manger as he sleeps
Regardless of how many times you’ve seen Jose Mari Chan memes on Facebook or heard “Christmas In Our Hearts” being played on the radio, we’re going to go ahead and answer another important question this month of September: What are the best promos being offered by different credit card companies right now?
The answers are below.
HSBC and Uniqlo have partnered to give new HSBC credit card holders up to P5,000 worth of clothes as a Welcome Gift.
The mechanics? Within the spending period of August 1, 2018 to April 15, 2019, new cardholders can get up to P3,000 and P5,000 for about the same amount of their very first transactions at Uniqlo. Those that have total purchases that are lower than the P3,000 and P5,000 cash back amounts will get exactly the same amount as they spent. E.g. for a P2,700-purchase at Uniqlo, you’ll get P2,700 cash back.
