It’s not racist, it’s Black Friday x Margiela rocks H&M!

But before I even spazz about the biggest shopping holiday in the US, let me introduce you to what you may have known for the past few weeks already. It’s the biggest collaboration everyone has been talking about from the moment it was announced. I don’t even know if I should name it, but what the hell. I’m too happy and perky, haha!

MAISON MARTIN MARGIELA x H&M. These are some of the standouts:

This ensemble is just perfect! Wish we could pull off that kind of outfit here in the PH! Plus look at the heels, its wedges are invisible :)

The lapels of this trench is inverted and the shirt, pants and even the shoes are hand-painted. What else isn’t special about this collection?!

And what is the relevance of all this when we live in the faraway land of MANILA? Not anymore! Introducing the GCASH American Express Virtual Card! It’s the answer to your shopping needs this Black Friday and even the Holiday season. Watch this quick video to know more about this:

Isn’t it great? You get to ship your goods to a virtual US ADDRESS (so you can take advantage of free shipping perks on some stores) and ship it to Manila at a lessened cost. What’s even better to know is that you don’t need a credit card to shop online. Loving the way you pay, eh?

So Black Friday just started a few hours ago and you still have roughly 20 hours to go before it ends! Watch the video above to guide you and go register now for your GCASH AmEx virtual card and enjoy your Black Friday shopping! Let me know what you bought, hihi :)

Can I just pay via an App?

Now you can! I just downloaded the GCASH App right after I heard there is (much to my surprise!) and I started testing the features. Apparently, GCASH had just relaunched and is now even better and more functional.

So all you need to do is to download the app (it’s free, btw) and launch it. Make sure that you have registered first via sending an SMS to 2882

Enter your MPIN, and you’re good to go with the app. With the GCASH App, you can now send money, pay bills, buy prepaid load, and even donate cash! Converting money, paying bills and buying prepaid load is free of charge.

 

It also has a summarized home view where you can view your transactions for a month, which is really useful especially if a bulk of your transactions are done thru GCASH.

All you need for this App is a smartphone (available in iOS, Android, and BlackBerry) and a Globe SIM.

***

In a world where there’s an app for everything, it’s really great that a local brand can come up with a very functional app. While it has a lot to improve at (like eliminating SMS registration and optimizing list of brands tied up with) it’s a still a  big leap forward for a local brand like Globe.

What do you think of the GCASH App? Can you think of ways to incorporate it in your daily lives? Let me know in the comments section below :)
