These days, a credit card is an indispensable resource for emergency cases during traveling. What can you do if you’re out of cash, there’s no ATM and you need to book a flight or hotel room? Not to mention you’ll need a credit card for the hotel deposit. In these cases, a credit card’s got you covered. I cannot imagine traveling without one. It gives me all the security and assurance I need.
You may have read my previous post about the Best Travel Credit Cards in the Philippines from two years ago. If I updated it as of today, the new Unionbank GetGo Credit Card would easily rise up to number two on the list. Aside from the P30 spend to 1 GetGo point redemption and advanced notifications on upcoming Cebu Pacific seat sales (much like the Citibank Cebu Pacific credit card does), the Platinum card also gives you the following benefits:
|You’d be surprised what kind of useful information are hidden in the pages of magazines.|
What’s more, I found out through the in-flight Smile Magazine on my recent Cebu Pacific flight last July 3 from Manila to Tokyo that you can get a FREE flight ANYWHERE across Cebu Pacific’s network (including all international destinations except Busuanga-Coron and Caticlan, but why would you use your voucher on a domestic flight when international flights are more expensive?), although “government tax, terminal fee and baggage allowance are on passenger’s account.” Blackout dates apply too. Still a great deal though!
All you need to do to get the free flight is:
– apply for the Gold or Platinum credit card, get approved before August 31, 2016, and spend P20,000 (single or accumulated) within two months. Totally doable! More details on the promotion here.
So what are you waiting for? Apply now and #FlyForFreeFaster! (That’s exactly what I’m going to do right after I publish this post.) 🙂
And in case you didn’t know, Cebu Pacific recently joined a number of other Asia Pacific-based Low Cost Carriers to form the world’s first and only alliance of budget airlines, the Value Alliance.
