deals of the week

It’s 2017, and odds are you’ve seen a ton of “New Year, New Me” posts on social media. Every year, everyone subjects themselves to an attempt at the only permanent thing in the world: change. The previous year is over, but that also means that a lot of retailers are looking to do some spring cleaning.

Spring deals and discounts are a great way to get some of the best in fashion and other goods using your credit card at lower prices.

Cleaning out


Grab your BDO credit card if you plan on doing some early stockpiling of baked goods or just want to make a few changes to your wardrobe. Head over to Marks and Spencer, save up to 50% and get additional 5% discount. Promo is from December 30, 2016 – January 5, 2017.

You can schedule your shopping trip later this month if rushing to an end-of-season sale doesn’t appeal to you. These discounts that run until January 31st should be right up your alley.

You can get freebies plus Buy Now Pay Later at Absolutely 0% instalment for up to 12 months using your BDO or American Express Credit Card. If your New Year’s resolution is to get fit by being more active, you can get up to 20% off at Capital, Nike Factory, and Nike Forum.

Chinabank promo

You can also update your wardrobe for the season through online shopping. You could get a chance to go Amazon Fashion Week in Tokyo when you shop using Chinabank credit card at Zalora! Just use the code AFWTOKYO when you check your purchases out.

More celebrations


If you’ve got friends or family who are heading out after the holidays, a departure meal with everyone is usually on everyone’s mind. Why not head down to Fairmont Makati and use your China Bank Platinum or World Mastercard. You can dine with a friend and get one guest to dine for FREE at Spectrum in Fairmont Makati. You can also get 20% off at Raffles, Fairmont Makati’s Café Macaron, Long Bar, Writers Bar, and Fairmont Lounge. This promo runs until February 28, 2017.


If you’re all shopped out and just plan to buy a meal to enjoy at home, check your BPI credit card for spends of Php 15,000 paid in 12-month and up instalment terms. You can get a free 6-pc Chickenjoy Bucket absolutely free. This promo is valid until January 31, 2017.

Final thoughts

Starting the year right doesn’t just mean cleaning out the closet or changing things up, it also means keeping up to date on all your bills and making sure you don’t have any leftover debt from the previous year.

As for deals and discounts on any shopping you want to do, it’s best to keep an eye out for clearance sales that usually happen this time of the year.
