Mastercard has cemented its commitment to support Philippine athletes aiming to ‘Win As One’ during the ongoing 2019 Southeast Asian (SEA) Games, which commenced on November 30 and will culminate on December 11.
“In the spirit of supporting the government and ensuring the Philippines is a successful host of the 2019 SEA Games, Mastercard has created multiple interactive initiatives encouraging Filipinos to actively participate in the event,” said Mastercard Philippines Country Manager Rowell Del Fierro.
Here are five ways the credit card firm has been making the 30th SEA Games a priceless experience for Filipinos:
1. The official 2019 SEA Games mobile app
The mobile app makes it easier to buy game tickets, add cards to quick payments, and obtain the latest news and updates on the SEA Games.
2. Limited-edition commemorative prepaid card
In partnership with Philippine National Bank, Mastercard has released a limited-edition commemorative 2019 SEA Games Mastercard prepaid card.
3. Facebook augmented reality filter on Facebook
Filipinos have been showing support by posting selfies with fun backgrounds, stickers, and even music on Facebook.
4. 10% discount on ticket purchase
Mastercard holders can enjoy the exclusive privilege of obtaining a 10% discount on ticket purchase with a minimum spend of P1,000 at any SM Tickets outlet or online. This offer also applies to transactions via the 2019 SEA Games mobile app.
5. The Mastercard Jeepney
Mastercard proudly unveiled its Mastercard Jeepney designed by young Filipino artist Lou Pineda-Arada. The card provider uses the iconic jeepney as a symbol of unity towards the country’s victory.
It features a volleyball and basketball motion-sensing game, which the University of the Philippines Fighting Maroon’s Kobe Paras got to play in front of the crowd. It was displayed at the Glorietta Activity Center until November 29.
