By every measure, 2020 was like no other. The past 12 months have seen an unprecedented series of disruptions, prompting us to adapt to multiple changes in lightning fast speed. The holiday season, while a tad different, serves as a warm reminder of all the things big and small we should be grateful for.
As we head into the first few weeks of 2021, Security Bank helps us focus on the good and makes giving a lot easier this new year.
Celebrating and gift-giving with family and friends
Many of our plans might have been put on hold, but who says that reconnecting with our loved ones has to be one of them?
With a slew of video conferencing tools, same-day delivery apps, and mobile chat software to choose from, we’ll never run out of ways to reunite even virtually with people dear to us. Along with schedules slowly being filled with Messenger calls, Viber quick chats, Zoom conferences, and separate-but-together online events, gift-giving can also bridge the physical gap between us and our loved ones.
With several of our favorite stores going digital and many of us finding new holy grails in online shopping apps, we see ourselves going for contactless and cashless payments.
For online purchases, Security Bank Mastercard debit or credit card gives us a PHP 100 Shopee voucher we can use to get a discount on the next item in our carts. Remember that during this time, every cost-saving promo counts. Get more info about this ongoing offer at bit.ly/SBCShoppingFest
Sending Aguinaldo Online
Since gatherings are still limited, we might not get a chance to see our godchildren this holiday season and hand them the crispy bills that’s always a highlight of parties! But for the ninongs and ninangs, there’s no need to worry about giving aguinaldos. An easy way to send money is through Security Bank’s eGiveCash.
Our inaanaks don’t even need to open a bank account; we only need to provide their details so they can easily receive our cash gifts. On top of this, Security Bank’s InstaPay fee is waived until March 31, 2021 for convenient cash transfer to family and friends without the add-on fees.
Giving Back to the Community
There are, as they say, two kinds of gratitude – the sudden kind we feel for what we take and the larger kind we feel for what we give. If we’ve learned anything about 2020, that is to make the most of what we have and to extend our gratitude by giving back.
Even the smallest act of generosity makes an impact and that’s what we need now more than previous years. Security Bank is grateful to be able to give back to the communities despite all of the challenges. One way to continue giving and sharing our blessings is by converting our credit card’s rewards points into donations. Visit bit.ly/CharityRewards to learn more and share the Yuletide spirit.
