Partner Feature | Nov 22 2019

Consider a December day in the metro. You are a driven professional with cause—determined, creative, and fiscally responsible. But despite being committed to work, your priorities are clear: you value family above all else. As the holiday season rolls out, you become all the more aware of your loved ones—and how you want to treat them to the finer (see: tastier) things in life.  

How do you do that given all of your responsibilities?  The solution comes in the form of a Metrobank Card. With its My Swipe, My Treat promo, Metrobank rewards its cardholders with treats from McDonald’s.

With the arrival of different payment platforms in the market, going cashless has become all the rage. And with good reason: it saves consumers’ time and energy. Now just think of it: a delectable meal to reward you for shopping responsibly. Not too shabby, eh.

To participate in the My Swipe, My Treat promo, all you need to do is make valid purchases with your Metrobank Card, and you can come home to your loved ones with a yummy bundle of joy. Finally, there is ample time to make precious holiday memories with the people you love.  

To make sure you qualify for the My Swipe My Treat Promo, these are the guidelines you have to follow.

 

Know the treats to feast on.

Did you know that a purchase amounting to P3,000 or more qualifies you for a McDonald’s eGC? There’s that and so much more to the My Swipe, My Treat promo, so it's best to know which treats you can redeem with your purchases.

The McDonald’s eGC value code a cardholder can receive is broken down as follows:     

For a minimum single-receipt purchase of P2,000 (straight retail)

Update your phone number with Metrobank. You’re going to need it.

Metrobank Card Corporation (MCC) requires an updated mobile number for one to qualify in the promo. This is because token codes will be sent to the cardholder via SMS to their registered mobile number found in Metrobank Card’s database within 24 hours from the time the valid transaction was made.  For principal cardholders with multiple mobile numbers, MCC shall apply the first mobile number registered to the primary cardholder’s account found in Metrobank Card Corporation’s (MCC) database.

A principal cardholder will receive one (1) token code via SMS for a minimum single-receipt purchase of P2,000 using his/ her Metrobank Card. Redemption of each token code is valid until February 29, 2020.

Qualified transactions made by supplementary cardholders will be credited to the principal cardholder’s account. Once a token code is received via SMS, the principal cardholder simply clicks the token code link found in the message to obtain the McDonald’s eGC value code via SMS. Cardholder must have strong data or WIFI connectivity in order to access token code landing page. 

 

Know which cashless transactions are qualified.

You don’t want to miss out on the free treats on a miscue.

And this holiday season, you get to share the gift a good meal with your loved ones, too.
