Buy Figaro Treats With Globe Reward Points!

I've been a Globe prepaid subscriber since 2001, and up until now I'm still using the same and only SIM card I've had since I was in Grade 5. It's been 12 years since I've had the same number, and though my SIM card is already yellow with age (it used to be white), I hope I could keep it for a few more years. I should really get a loyalty award from Globe, but only postpaid subscribers have that kind of thing. 

Right now, Globe has a rewards program for all their subscribers so that's better than nothing. MyRewards MyGlobe entitles each subscriber to earn points for every reload, and you can use these points to claim rewards. Over the year, I've accumulated a little over 1000 points (with the help of my family), and time came that I needed to finally use it since it would expire by the end of the month.


It was very timely as a week or two before the points would expire, I received a text message from Globe stating that I could claim Figaro treats in Figaro SM North EDSA and Tomas Morato using my Globe Reward Points. The so-called "exchange rate" for this promo was also very nice, as 1 point=1 peso! That means, each point is just good as cash when it comes to purchasing anything from Figaro.

The procedure was very easy. You'd just order as usual, and tell the cashier that you'd be paying with points. You'd need to text a keyword (which you'd find on the poster in store) to transfer the points to the Figaro branch you're in. If your purchase exceeds the number of points you have, you can just pay for the excess with cash. You need a minimum of 50 points to redeem this reward.

Using the Globe Reward Points, I treated my family to these: 

Cafe Mocha (P105.00 each/8 oz.)


Vanilla Frost (P135.00)

Arrabbiata (P179.00)

Al Tonno (P189.00)

Marble Cream Cheese Brownie (P70.00)

Pandan Cake (P110.00)

Figaro's Summer Fusion

I got curious with Figaro's newest offerings for this season, Summer Fusion. Only Four Seasons and Lychee Cucumber Fusion were available that day, so I chose the latter since it was more unique.

Lychee Cucumber Fusion (P125.00)

I actually loved this drink. It had a distinct but light cucumber flavor, like cucumber water with lychee juice combined. It even had real cucumber bits inside the drink. This one was a very light, refreshing drink with a very fresh flavor. I liked this better than the regular Figaro Frosts that I have tried before.


My sister wanted to try Figaro's Milk Tea Craze drinks, but only Honeydew Frost with Figaro Tea was available. I was told that the other flavors were already phased out. We didn't buy this using our points, but instead, we used our SM Advantage Card (SMAC) to avail of the Buy 1 Take 1 promo on the Milk Tea Craze drinks.

Honeydew Frost with Figaro Tea (P100.00 for 2, SMAC promo)

Thank you, MyRewards MyGlobe and Figaro Coffee Company for the treat! If you still have some Globe Reward Points, you better claim it before it expires. :)

Love,
Helen

    1. I want to do that too! But everytime I go to a Globe store, the waiting time/line discourages me from doing so. Haha! This month, I will make it a point to drop by Globe for that. Thanks so much, Belle! :)

    2. you're welcome sis, :) haba nga lagi ng pila sa globe, dati sa mga kiosk lang ko nakakapagpapalit, meron sila parang booth lang, pero nong minsan nagtanong nga ko sa globe center, pwede daw, may fee lang and ID, di lang ko tumuloy non, kasi meron ako babayaran thru Gcash, eh parang deactivated ng ilang oras yung number mo, habang ayos nila sa system nila, sabi nila 2 days, pero with my experience, parang activated naman agad, magwait man eh ilang hours lang. sana ganon pa nga din.
