I received an email about the BDO Credit Card (or American Express) & EDSA Shangri-La Manila’s HEAT and Staycation Voucher sale and immediately showed it to Mr. A. I’ve been wanting to go on a staycation and this couldn’t have arrived at a better time. Our birthdays are coming up (May & June), so this was something we can use when the time comes. And inisip na din namin yung iba pang occasion na pwede pag gamitan ng vouchers, hehe! Like our wedding anniversary in November, good thing the promo is valid for a year.
You can’t purchase the vouchers online though and you have to physically line up for the tickets. So earlier today, after a quick hospital visit we went straight to Shangri-La Mall to check it out. We got there around 10:45 AM and we were already 90th in line. We decided to stick it out and just walked around the different stores around the venue.
Here are the details of the promo as lifted from BDO’s website (source) —
We waited for about 30 minutes and the actual transaction was fast & efficient; we were done in less then 10 minutes. We bought 1 overnight stay voucher (Php 6,500 net) & 4 dinner buffet vouchers (from Php 2,325 net to Php 1,300 net each). Maximum is 10 vouchers per person and they swipe the card twice; one for each transaction – overnight & buffet.
The overnight stay voucher is applicable for Deluxe Garden Room stay for 2 adults and 2 children below 6 years old and is already inclusive of buffet breakfast for 2. I think this is what ultimately made us decide to buy this because breakfast is already included. I’ve been searching for other possible staycation locations and even with my membership, breakfast is not included. There are block off dates and the overnight voucher can only be used Friday to Sunday. There are other room categories (see photo above), but of course, pinili namin yung pinaka-mura, hehe! I can’t wait to use our vouchers!
