LaBoracay. The annual summer shebang that gathers yuppies, AFAMs, and college kids all on one island in the name of partying and, well, partying some more. Booking a flight as early as a year in advance might help you get tickets at a cheaper rate, but come Labor Day weekend, putting a cap on the spending might be easier said than done. But what if we told you that there’s no use for cash on the island? Yup, you can survive, only with the help of a little plastic card we like to call the Globe GCash MasterCard.
Yes, you can enjoy this view without whipping out cash!
Your wallet condensed into a single plastic card. Beautiful, isn't it?
Okay, so the idea of leaving it all to some swiping action might scare some, who think establishments on the island won’t accept it. But in truth, you can use this debit-credit card anywhere in the Philippines (or even the world) that accepts MasterCards. From settling your hotel bill, ordering drinks at the bar, or even buying a new bikini, all you have to do is swipe. You can even use the card to withdraw and loan money, and keep track of transactions easily from your desktop or mobile devices.
Use your card to buy food and order drinks.
You can even use it to buy more beach necessities from various establishments.
The only thing is you have to make sure your GCash account is alive and well and that you have money in it before you can use the card. Once that’s settled then you’re pretty much good to go! Now say it with us: beeeend... and swipe!
