GCash partners with Noel Bazaar for early Christmas shopping


‘Tis the season for Christmas and gift-giving, and what other way to prepare for that than to shop at the biggest holiday fair in the metro through GCash.

This year, GCash has partnered with Noel Bazaar to make shopping even easier with the scan to pay feature and give customers a treat with 10% cashback for their purchases with GCash.

Aside from making the holiday rush easier through cashless payments, the GCash promo makes this Yuletide season more exciting by allowing GCash users to shop at as many stalls as they want at the Noel Bazaar and get the 10 percent cashback as long as they use GCash. Shoppers are awarded a maximum of P100 cashback for every stall they buy at when they use GCash to pay for their purchase. That means a lot of savings and opportunities to find the best Christmas gifts for your loved ones!

Noel Bazaar, which opened its doors 16 years ago, is considered the granddaddy of all bazaars, with over 500 participating merchants and average daily visitors of around 6,500. It offers a wide range of gift suggestions from fashion and beauty products, gifts, toys and novelty items to travel essentials and airline tickets. The shopping mecca also includes an International Food Feast for hungry shoppers. One of the highlights of the bazaar is the GMA Celebrity Ukay-Ukay & GMA Auction, featuring pre-loved items GMA Kapuso Stars sell at a very affordable price. This year’s GMA Celebrity Ukay-Ukay offers items from “Ultimate Star” Jennylyn Mercado, “Meant To Be” Boys (Ken Chan, Jak Roberto, Ivan Dorschner and Addy Raj), and the “Celebrity Glam Moms” (Yasmien Kurdi, Lj Reyes, and Chynna Ortaleza).

As one of the most anticipated events of the season, shoppers now have more chances to visit Noel Bazaar in different venues. First stop is at the World Trade Center in Pasay City on November 16 to 19 and November 24 to 30. From there, the bazaar moves to its next venue at the Filinvest Tent in Alabang on November 30 to December 3. Last minute shoppers have a final chance to catch the bazaar at the SMX Convention from December 14 to 17.

GCash, the country’s leading cashless payment service, is already being accepted in many stores nationwide. GCash has made it easy for its users to pay and collect money from the app —from booking a ticket to paying bills and shopping online, at the mall or at the Noel Bazaar—providing transparency and allowing easy tracking of purchases through the GCash App.
