The Advantages of Reward Cards

I used to keep membership cards of different establishments where we visit regularly. What makes me keep such cards in my wallet? Of course, the privileges and the freebies for the cardholders. Though there are other cards available, I used to decline some of them because of annual membership fees. Also, we rarely visit some of those establishments.

Here are the cards I keep in my wallet:

BDO Rewards Card – I earned points from banking as well as purchases in SM and other partner establishments like Toy Kingdom, Watson, Ace Hardware. Now, even Waltermart Supermarket accepts the said card. Each point is equivalent to one peso and these points can be used to pay on your purchases.

Jollibee Happy Plus Card – Our company issued me a StarCard from Caltex. Because of this, I avail the Happy Plus Card of Jollibee. You can earn points by fueling up at Caltex. Every 50-peso purchase will give you 1 point. Like BDO Rewards, every point is equivalent to 1 peso where you can use as payment for any food items at Jollibee and its affiliates (Mang Inasal, Chowking, Greenwich and Red Ribbon).

Mercury Drug Suki Card – During Mommy’s pregnancy with Matthew, I used to buy her supplements in Mercury Drugstore. This is the reason why I decided to acquire this card. Sayang din kasi ang points. Actually, I already used my points here in buying snacks, multivitamins and a planner. I still keep this in my wallet since it has no expiration.

Waltermart Plus Card – There are two major supermarkets we visited for our monthly groceries – SM Hypermarket and Waltermart Supermarket. Since I received my BDO Rewards Card, I rarely use my Waltermart Plus Card. I only use this in Abenson and Home Plus. There is no annual fee for this card. All you need is to update it on or before it expires. In addition, you can have a supplementary card without extra cost.

Now that the Holiday Season is coming, earning reward points will be increase. Furthermore there are  Hot Deals offered that will help you accelerate the points you can earn.

Do you also keep such reward cards?
