I received my BDO Emerald Reward card thru mail, months after I opened up my first personal savings account at Banco De Oro and after successfully maintaining at least P50,000 balance on my account. I have been a member since then, as printed in my card since Jan 2009. For more than 3 years, I have gained rewards points every time I had qualified bank transactions and whenever I go on shopping at SM and other participating establishments. My reward points had reached approximately 6,607 points that is equivalent to P6,607.00 which can be used as payment on my next shopping.
I thought of getting a gadget or a corelle dining set or a sewing machine with my gained points but after stressful thinking (charing! hehe) and my son’s approaching birthday celebration, which will be held at home and we don’t have utensils to be used in the party, I decided to get 2 dozens of Melaware plates, 2 dozens of cups, 4 bowls, 4 serving plates and 2 clear plastic pitchers. Instead of using paper plates I thought of having these that can be used again in the future.
