The Six Fix: All The Reasons Why You Oughta Catch The Virtual Wallet Trend In Time For Christmas!

Have you ever tried sorting through the contents of your wallet like you’re its gatekeeper, taking out a few things just so it could fit your stylish clutch? Then you realize that you could pass as a poker dealer, shuffling a thick deck of debit/credit cards, flashing the cash, and pretending to stack up chips with coins.

And suddenly you remember, during your trip out of the country, you’ve noticed people use mobile phones for payment.  You’ve told yourself that you’re happy with cash payments, but that’s before you’ve seen how chic your OOTD is with just a small bag. Well, aside from fashion, here are a few more reasons why a virtual wallet should be part of your lifestyle.

1. You can save time and money. In the hustle and bustle of city life, the clock’s always a-tickin’. So choose a virtual wallet that’s perfect for your on-the-go lifestyle. GCash, for example, can save you several seconds of counting cash with its QR scanning feature. All you need to do is take out your mobile phone, scan the code for an exact payment, and off you go to the next shopping or dining destination. No need to give away a few cents just because the store doesn’t have some loose change!

Running late to the movies or need to pay bills ASAP? You can save precious minutes of waiting in line with mobile money! With GCash, you can do this anytime, anywhere: opening the app on your mobile phone to simply tap away the payment details.

2. It gives you more financial flexibility. A virtual wallet that you can use in several establishments gives you the most value for your money. And GCash does just that. It has tie-ups with well-known financial services such as MasterCard and American Express (AMEX). This means that you can use it in over 33 million establishments and online stores worldwide. Yup, you can go around the world with it for shopping, dining, booking movie seats, paying airfare, and more.

4. You can get discounts with your purchases. Want to experience the best bargains in store or online? GCash offers cashbacks and promos every now and then, so the more you use it, the more you actually save. Also, even if you’re not in the U.S., you can catch the biggest holiday sales on through AMEX Virtual Pay. Now, that’s a real plus.

5. It’s much safer than carrying cash. What happens to your cash if your physical wallet gets stolen? Gone. What about cash in your virtual wallet? Saved. If ever your phone gets stolen, you can notify customer service that’s available 24/7 to prevent unauthorized purchases with your virtual wallet.

6. You gain more control of your budget. Since all transactions are recorded in the app, you can easily check your balance and plan ahead for your next shopping, dining, or travel escapade. It’s like having a personal accountant who keeps a record of your transactions and balances for free! Download the free GCash virtual card now on Google Play and App Store, or get the physical card at malls and Globe stores nationwide.
