Activated my GCASH Amex Account and went shopping right away!

I tweeted one time and asked if anybody who was going to the US or in the US would be kind enough to buy me a bottle of Bumble and Bumble Surf Spray. I sooo wanted to get my hands on this thing because it promises beach hair in minutes, and beach hair is my kind of hairstyle. Well, nobody was kind enough during that time, then I remembered I have a GCASH Amex account. Dang! How could I have forgotten that?!

The obstacle was, I have COMPLETELY forgotten about the necessary details of my GCASH Amex account such as the Expiry date, US residence address, Security code, and Card number, but claiming 'em was just very easy: Dial *143# and choose GCASH, select GCASH Amex, and pick the number that best caters to your concern. That's it! After a minute or two,  I got all the important details, and the updated versions already at that because I got an email notification before that Globe has changed my US address and security code-nah, they didn't require me to enter my old details. Such a relief for someone who has short term memory loss LOL! :D

Oh, so guess what I ordered? :)

You bet! Bumble and Bumble Surf Spray! It wasn't on sale already, but I don't care! I was a few clicks away from getting it! :)

The reason why I love Sephora is this: They're sooo generous with samples! I'm a Beauty Insider, by the way, and here's one of my perks: Getting deluxe- sized samples (or are they full- sized samples?) using Sephora points! I got Philosophy's Take A Deep Breath Moisturizer just to try- read a lot of good stuff about it. :)

Got 3 additional free samples also and I got Make Up For Ever's Smoky Extravagant Mascara sample, (a mascara sample!? Cool!) Fresh Rose Face Mask sample, and Alterna Bamboo Smooth Anti-Frizz Shampoo, Conditioner, and Hair Oil sample set.

Oooohh. Excitement! Can't wait! Now I'm checking out more international sites for my next online shopping adventure. 'Til then! :D

8 Lovely Thoughts

  1. oh that's so cool!i didn't know Globe has this feature..will check it out!hehe.. :D thanks ms. m! :)

  2. Do you have an idea what is the average handling time? Usually if pre-order it will take 3-4 weeks, I wonder kung mas fast ang shipment thru them. TIA!

  3. Make up pro now sells items from bumble and bumble! I just saw it yesterday. =) Anyway, do you think it is more practical that we order directly from sephora or should we just go for online stores who accept preorders from sephora and other brands? Thank you! =)

  4. CJ: This feature was launched last year pa. :)

    Apple: Thanks for the info! :) How much is it? It depends on the product you'll purchase and the pricing of the pre-ordering online stores. If the price difference compared to purchasing it directly from the website is not that huge with online stores, go for them. Right now, I prefer Gcash Amex because I don't have to wait for the order pooling time to finish as well as the shipping time, and I get to take advantage of Sephora's samples too. :)

    Cynthia: Hi there! :) My Shopping Box is the partner courier of GCASH Amex. If shipped by Air, arrival is a little over 2 weeks, 11 days to be exact. :) The package doesn't go through customs anymore and it's delivered right to your house. :)

  5. Ahh i get that! =) Right now i only have the guts to use my gcash amex for purchasing paid apps and songs on app store and itunes. Hehe.

    I checked the store i mentioned pala and they don't sell this particular product from bumble and bumble, but i think they are always open for preorder. But you can't beat the time convenience and samples from sephora. And you're a beauty insider pa. Kaya direct purchase is better in your case. God bless! =)

  6. using gcash is really hassle free, mejo addicting nga lang =) i love reading haul posts yan ang unang nagustuhan ko sa mga firsts blog posts mo nun ms m =) i saw sephora hauls from other foreign bloggers and wow talaga yung mga GWP nila matetempt ka maghoard hehe =) gonna wait for your reviews on your product buys ms m! hugs!

  7. i got a sample of benefit's they're real and bad gal in sephora because it was my birthday month :)i also love the section by the cashier coz that's where the pint size samples are :)

  8. Apple: Thanks dear! I'm thinking of buying apps too, especially games! :D

    Trish: Hi and welcome to my blog! Thanks for sharing. :)

    Rhain: Awww...thanks! :D You should try gcash amex soon-it's awesome! :D
