Philippine number one mobile brand Globe Telecom further strengthens its support for Filipino entrepreneurs and sari-sari store owners in the country by being a major participant in Puregold Price Club’s 12th Tindahan ni Aling Puring (TNAP) Sari-Sari Store Convention on May 20-24, 2015 at the World Trade Center in Pasay City.
Globe has been a consistent supporter of the annual gathering of sari-sari store owners over the last six years, offering members exclusive services and offers that drove the growth of their respective enterprises.
With the theme “Unlimited: Unli and Saya, Unli ang Ligaya!”, the convention features around 150 booths from trade partners which offer different promos, big discounts, freebies, sampling, giveaways and exciting raffle prizes to all Puregold valued members and customers, VIPs, and guests. Aside from shopping, TNAP members can also attend various business-related seminars.
“The partnership between Globe and Puregold remained strong since 2010 and we want to continue this through exciting exclusive offers which will be beneficial to both our customers. Like Puregold, Globe wants to help small entrepreneurs make the most out of their businesses and we are looking forward to a stronger alliance with Puregold in the years to come,” said Bernie Llamzon, Globe Executive Vice President for Consumer Sales.
During the five-day event, Globe will set up several booths to showcase its latest products and services. Highlights include GCash MasterCard, a reloadable prepaid card linked to a GCash account that can be used to purchase goods at the convention instead of carrying loads of cash; and Globe Charge, an important business tool that accepts MasterCard & Visa payments via smartphones or tablets, thereby, avoiding the hassle of applying for a credit card terminal from the bank.
In 2010, Globe launched the Aling Puring Super Suki SIM, a special multi-function SIM card exclusively available for Aling Puring members that enables them to receive text blast announcements and promos under special call and text rates. With the SIM cards, they are also able to sell prepaid load as additional source of income.
A year later, Globe and Puregold forged an innovative partnership for an easy and convenient reload channel that enable Globe and TM subscribers to buy prepaid load from any Puregold checkout counter via its point-of-sale (POS) technology.
