Just recently, I got addicted to online shopping. It’s hassle-free (no traffic going to the mall, no long queues, just a large selection of items right under your fingertips) I can spend all night browsing through pages after pages of online shops. But honestly, there’s only one caveat to online shopping—I’m afraid to hit that enter button which might lead to paying so much for taxes and shipping fees. It’s such a shame because there are a lot of really good items online! 

Well there’s good news for us online shoppers! Globe GCASH and American Express teamed up to make our lives easier with the new GCASH American Express Virtual Card! It’s a prepaid virtual card linked to your GCASH wallet. You get your purchases delivered right to your doorstep at low shipping charges (with the help of www.my-shoppingbox.com)

Since the Black Friday Sale (a.k.a. the busiest shopping day of the year in the US) is fast approaching, not to mention the Christmas Holiday is just around the corner, I made a very simple tutorial so you can sign up for your own GCASH American Express Virtual Card too! It’s so easy so do not get intimated! Here’s how:

STEP 1: Go to www.globe.com.ph/gcash-amex and apply for a GCASH American Express Virtual Card. Key in your mobile number and email address. You will receive an SMS notification with your passcode. 

STEP 2: Key in your passcode to confirm your application. You will receive an email containing your passcode-protected digital handbook with your account and shipping details. Another great thing about the GCASH American Express Virtual Card is that they’ll give you a personalized US address to allow delivery of your purchases right to your doorstep—you won’t have to go to the post office anymore!

STEP 3: Convert your cash to GCASH! Just go to www.globe.com.ph/gcash-amex and click the Convert to GCASH button, choose your bank then type the amount you want to transfer! Or visit any GCASH outlets nationwide—they have over 7,000!  

STEP 4: You can now start shopping! Went to my favorite online shop and got this vinyl cruiser skateboard as an early Christmas gift for myself! I also got presents for my readers! Here’s a preview of the stuff I ordered for you guys! Just a little token for being so awesome! And since the Black Friday Sale is fast approaching, you can get these items at a great bargain! Most retailers offer crazy sales to kick off the holiday shopping season—even online! 

PRIZE #1: Camo Poler Rucksack Backpack. I chose this one because of the military and camper vibe which I really like. It has a padded internal 15” laptop sleeve, adjustable ergonomic shoulder straps and the side pouches are detachable! Pretty cool!  

PRIZE #2: Poler Rucksack Backpack in burnt orange. Like what you see? Of course I didn’t forget about my female readers! Yeeee.

PRIZE #3: “Around the World” Leather Watch. It’s such a challenge to shop for girls so I went with a safe choice—a classic leather watch! But the world map design makes it so unique don’t you think?

PRIZE #4: Mustache Watch—I like this one because it’s minimal and oversized! 

Want to win any of the four items above from Urban Outfitters? Scroll down to find out how! But wait, after you’ve chosen your items, you are just a few clicks away from successfully using your GCASH American Express Virtual Card! 

STEP 5: After checkout, choose American Express as your mode of payment and fill up all the details. Request for your security code by dialing *143# or via the GCASH mobile app—which you can download for free! 

STEP 6: Aaaaand that’s it! Wait for your order to be delivered at your home! Black Friday Sale is next week already so I’m encouraging you guys to apply for a GCASH  American Express Virtual Card! It’s very easy!
