PayMaya Rewards Millennials With A Chance To Travel To Asia’s Top Destinations

February 07, 2017

PayMaya, the country’s pioneer and leader in mobile money and digital payments, launched Travel Blowout promo to treat the millennials with a chance to travel to Hong Kong, Indonesia (Bali), and Japan with family and friends for free.

Each month from February 1 to April 30, 2017, one lucky PayMaya user will win an all-expense-paid trip to Asia’s most exciting destinations starting with Hong Kong this February, Bali in March, and Osaka and Kyoto in April. The prize includes roundtrip airfare and accommodation for four to bring family or friends, and Php50,000 pocket money to shop, dine and enjoy the whole travel experience. Each trip is arranged by a travel agency partner so the winner is set to see and enjoy the best that each country has to offer.

To earn raffle entries, consumers just need to download, activate, and use their PayMaya app or card. The following activities are equal to one raffle entry each: downloading and activating the PayMaya app, purchasing and activating the physical card, purchasing using the app or card with a minimum single receipt of Php1,000.00, having the account upgraded and approved, and paying bills in-app. Consumers can keep on transacting as desired to earn more raffle entries.

PayMaya has always strived to widen their travel opportunities by providing a means to pursue their passion even without having a credit card,” said Paolo Azzola, Managing Director and co-COO, PayMaya Philippines.
