Most people have at least 3 to 5 rewards cards in their wallets. You earn points for buying groceries from different supermarkets, for booking flights on various airlines, for purchasing anything at department stores, when loading gas or buying medicines. Even the simple act of buying coffee and pizza can earn you points that you can eventually redeem. The key word is eventually because it can take a while for those points to add up and amount to something. Most of the time, they just expire without you knowing and you end up not ever redeeming anything.
Which is why the MVP (Most Valuable Partner) Rewards pioneered by the PLDT Group looks like a very promising program. I got to learn more about this innovative program during the media launch held last February 6, 2018. Here are just some reasons why you will want this card in your wallet wherever you go.
1. POINTS ARE AS GOOD AS CASH & THEY DON’T EXPIRE
Imagine a rewards program where points are as good as cash and don’t expire! Customers can choose how they want to enjoy their rewards across a wide range of services without ever having to worry about expiration dates. Because points are as good as cash, they can be used to shop or dine locally and abroad.
2. YOU CAN EARN POINTS JUST BY PAYING YOUR BILLS
This innovative program allows PLDT Home, Smart and Sun postpaid customers to earn points just by paying for basic necessities of modern day living such as mobile and internet. You get 1 point for every P250 worth of bill, paid ON TIME and IN FULL. Points earned from different accounts are consolidated into the MVP Rewards Card powered by PayMaya. You can earn additional points and get rebates simply by paying for your monthly bills IN FULL and ON TIME using the PayMaya app. Smart Prepared, Sun and Talk ‘n Text (TNT) customers, on the other hand, can also earn points every time they load up.
3. SINGLE WALLET FOR ALL YOUR REWARDS
The more accounts you enroll in the program, the more points you get AUTOMATICALLY since earned points from each service of each company are credited and consolidated into one wallet. For households with several members, it would be better to make the cardholder the same person who handles the monthly bills to make sure that points are credited. Cash rebates will be credited to your MVP card. You will receive both a physical and virtual card.
4. THE CARD OFFERS MORE THAN JUST REWARDS
With the MVP Rewards program, you can shop or dine anywhere and at anytime you want like using a credit card or debit card. You can use the card as a prepaid card, which makes it a safe choice for shopping, both online and offline. Unlike credit cards which rack up interest and debit cards which are connected to your salary or personal savings acoount, the MVP Rewards Card can help you manage your expenses by loading ONLY WHAT YOU ARE WILLING TO SPEND. So if you’re going out of the country and want to keep your shopping habits in check, you can use the card by loading it and by swiping as a VISA card.
5. YOU CAN PAY FOR PURCHASES ONLINE
You can use the card to pay for clothes, gadgets, flights, and other items you order online. For those worried about using their other credit cards or don’t have a credit card, this offers a secure option for online payments.
6. ENJOY CASHLESS PAYMENTS
While offline or in establishments and retails stores, you can also use the card to make hassle-free cashless payments by using PayMaya’s QR code feature.
7. YOU CAN USE IT TO PAY TOLLS
Going on a road trip? You can even use the card to pay your toll fees! The MVP card also has a Paywave function which means it can be used as a tap card when paying for toll fees in select lanes in NLEX and Cavitex.
8. SHOW CARD PRIVILEGES
Just by being a member, you get instant perks. Customers enrolled in the program are automatically included in regular member-only raffle draws, where you get a chance to win big rebates for your phone, cable, Internet and utility bills.
9. SPECIAL DISCOUNTS
Members can also enjoy special discounts when they show their MVP card at various establishments nationwide including restaurants, fitness and wellness centers and retail outlets.
10. YOU CAN GET THE PERSONALIZED CARD FOR FREE
