Three Aguinaldo hacks for Ninongs and Ninangs

By now, I’m sure most of you are already feel the holiday stress thinking of ways on how you can bring a merrier Christmas for your inaanaks while staying at the safety of your homes. Gift giving is definitely more challenging these days, but with the help of handy digital services, there’s always a way to put a smile on your inaanak’s face this holiday season. 

Let me share to you some aguinaldo hacks that you can still apply to your own gift giving this holiday season:

1. Personalize gifts by putting on some of “uniquely you” elements in the packaging. 

This can be done by wrapping your gift with a scarf, spraying the box with your personal scent or simply including a thoughtful note on you gift!

2. Bake or cook for them. 

I’m sure your inaanaks miss the food that you always prepare every time they visit you for Christmas gatherings. So why not send them your specialty ulam or dessert as a simple gift? Nothing beats a homecooked meal especially made for your loved ones. Apart from being a thoughtful gift, this is also more sulit, especially if you use your PayMaya to shop for the ingredients. 

You can pay for your groceries via PayMaya QR at the top supermarkets like Rustans, Robinsons Supermarket, WalterMart, Shopwise, AllDay, and many more! Every time you #ScanToPay a minimum of P1,000 via PayMaya QR at these stores, you automatically get a P50 cashback. You can enjoy this up to five time this month to earn a total of P250 cashback!

3. Give them the liberty to choose the gift they wish to receive. 

Since you can’t hand ampao to your inaanak this year, send their aguinaldo digitally! You can easily send digital aguinaldo via the “Send Money” or “Bank Transfer” feature of PayMaya. Within a few taps on your phone, your inaanaks can instantly send their pamasko and spend it however they like!

On top of all this, everytime you #ScanToPay via PayMaya QR, Pay with your PayMaya mobile number online, or purchase items at the PayMaya in-app shop, you get to earn a raffle entry at PayMaya’s PayMayaguinaldo raffle promo for a chance to win up to P1,000,000 until January 10, 2021!
