Black Friday Key Visual

One week to go until Black Friday! For those that aren’t familiar Black Friday is the Friday following Thanksgiving Day in the U.S. It is also the time when many retailers offer huge discounts. This is one of the most awaited sale events of the year and for the menswear enthusiast this is a fantastic time to buy from American brands.

I’ve been using GCash American Express Virtual Pay to buy items in the U.S. that are not available here and shipping them at reasonable rates using their partner My Shopping Box. The package arrives within 7-10 days and is delivered to my doorstep. I no longer need to worry about importation fees as it is included in the fee charged by My Shopping Box.

For this year’s Black Friday Globe is giving GCash American Express Virtual Pay subscribers a treat in the form of a discount on My Shopping Box shipping fees. This is on top of the 3-5% discount that all GCash American Express Virtual Pay subscribers get when paying for shipping fees on My Shopping Box.

– You get a Php 6 discount for every full dollar spent on My Shopping Box shipping fees paid between November 6 to 24, 2013. (e.g. Php 60 discount for a $10.50 My Shopping Box shipping fee)

– You get a Php 12 discount for every full dollar spent on My Shopping Box shipping fees paid between November 25 to December 8, 2013. (e.g. Php 120 discount for a $10.50 My Shopping Box shipping fee)

If you are a GCash American Express Virtual Pay subscriber you can avail of the discount on the shipping fees by following the instructions below. Subscribers will get their discount in the form of a refund to their GCash account.
