Metrobank is Adding Rewards Points Multipliers to Its Cards So You Can Get More Out of Your Spending
If you’re reading this, you probably know someone who’s just a little off the deep end when it comes to credit card rewards. In fact, you may very well be the type yourself: hyper-competitive about getting the absolute best deals, eager to make the most out of every purchase, and deeply fulfilled by every freebie scored with points. It’s not being cheap; it’s being practical—and you shouldn't let anyone convince you otherwise.
Just look at Brian Kelly, an American entrepreneur who became famous for his skillful use of credit card rewards points. He’s used miles and rewards points to fund entire trips around the world, and so became known as The Points Guy. Now, he runs a travel publication about that jetsetting, rewards-based lifestyle and teaches people how to maximize their points.
But lately, it's likely that this type of credit card user has had to find ways to adjust to the so-called "new normal." Community quarantine restrictions have changed the way we shop and spend, which means we've all had to find new ways to plan and maximize our expenses.
Luckily for Metrobank cardholders, there's a promo from June 15 to August 31, 2020 to enjoy higher rewards multipliers for select merchant categories. That means more points for the same amount spent. Here are the specifics:
Metrobank World Mastercard holders get 4X more rewards points on online spend.
Metrobank Peso Platinum Mastercard holders get 3X more rewards points on online spend and dining spend.
Metrobank Travel Platinum Visa holders get 3X more rewards points on online spend.
Metrobank Femme Signature Visa holders get 3X more rewards points on online spend and drugstore spend.
Notice that all of these are particularly suited to typical spending habits during quarantine. We are all encouraged to do more online shopping for health and safety reasons, after all. And now, it’s perfectly possible to put everything on your card and maximize the alloted days after statement cut-off due date to give you more time to plan your budget.
Now, it’s just a matter of making the most of those transactions by accumulating rewards points to use for later. Consider also that the promo runs only until August, so points-savvy spenders should want to plan accordingly.
Apart from these promos, Metrobank is also offering 5% fuel rebate at Petron for its newly approved and qualified Toyota Mastercard holders. What little you spend on fuel now can be cut down even further, with this promo.
Offers like these are Metrobank's way of helping you adapt and adjust to these unusual times, allowing you to get as much value as you can out of all your spendings.
