SM Advantage Card

Posted at Aug 23 2017 07:01 PM

Who doesn’t love the weekends? After a full week of stress from work or school, we all deserve to spoil ourselves with a little "me-time" or family time.

But not everyone is a couch potato, who enjoys sitting on the sofa and simply binge-watching TV series and movies. Many of us want to stretch our legs, head out, and, let’s say, do some shopping.

To make it extra exciting and rewarding, SM Advantage and SM Prestige are once again rolling out the Follow the Yellow Dot campaign. This is your chance to get exclusive discounts and freebies just by going to any SM Mall, and Following the Yellow Dots, then showing your SM Advantage Card or SM Prestige Card.

What exactly can you do by Following the Yellow Dot? Let us count the ways:

1. Treat the gang to a delightful meal

By simply using your SM Advantage Card or SM Prestige Card, you can explore different restaurants and try out the different cuisines they offer.


To start the day, treat yourself and your squad to a sumptuous breakfast at Pancake House, IHOP, or Seattle's Best. Then kickstart your rest day with a freshly brewed coffee from Figaro.

But if you're in for a heavy lunch, you can check out classic Kapampangan dishes at Cabalen Restaurant or Mangan Restaurant. And if you’re in the mood to go all out, then a trip to Niu By Vikings or Vikings Luxury Buffet Restaurant is a must.

Modern Shanghai

By merienda time, you can have your pizza fix at Shakeys or Plank Sordough Pizza, or indulge yourself in delicious ice cream creations at Coldstone. Then after a day of exploring the mall, get a satisfying dinner and explore Asian cuisines by checking out Modern Shanghai, Yoshinoya, Karate Kid, Tempura, Rock & Seoul Bibimbap Bar, or Rai Rai Ken.

2. Reinvent your #OOTD

Looking for new stuff to add to your #OOTD? Grab local and international fashion brands that suit your taste, style, and budget. By Following the Yellow Dot, you can avail exclusive discounts from your favorite brands.

Get new office #OOTDs at Xoxo, Maldita, Plains & Prints, and Perry Ellis. If you're sporty, you can also shop for sportswear at Columbia, The North Face, and Mountain Hardwear. Then pair it with comfortable shoes from Skechers or Reebok. And if you're planning to buy a new watch, check out trendy and fashionable selections at Technomarine, Dapper Swiss Time, or Invicta.

3. Adrenaline pump

Looking for something more exciting to do than just watching a movie? There are a number of recreational spots for you and the whole family where you can use your SM Advantage or SM Prestige Card.

Sky Ranch Tagaytay

There are mini theme parks and game centers all around the malls. You can check out SM By The Bay Amusement Park at SM Mall of Asia in Pasay, or SM Bowling or SM Skating for a fun family bonding. Kids will also enjoy the rides at the SM Storyland or Skyranch. From Ferris wheels to merry-go-rounds, there are different attractions you can check out.

4. Get back in shape

Fitness First

Your SM Advantage card can also help you in your road to fitness. Sweat those calories out at Crossfit MNL or Fitness First. But if you want to relax and rejuvenate your body, you can pamper yourself at Dermstrata Skin Clinic and Spa, Belo Medical Group, Flawless, or Dermclinic. This is your chance to get rid of the "stress marks" that formed in your face and body.

Meanwhile, keep your teeth sparkling white and your gums healthy by scheduling a checkup at Metro Dental. After that, you can also drop by David's Salon to sport a new look or pamper your nails at Beauty & Butter or Posh Nails.
