GLOBE Telecom subscribers can now convert their unused data into rewards points.

This new offering applies to Globe’s postpaid, prepaid and broadband services. Unused data may be converted into points via the Globe One App.

For prepaid users, the conversion is one gigabyte (GB) equals one rewards point. For postpaid, one GB equals 10 rewards points while for home prepaid WiFi, three GBs translates to three rewards points. These unused data may be converted into points at any time within the promo validity or before the plan’s cut-off date.

Globe’s deputy chief commercial officer Issa Guevarra-Cabreira, during Globe’s virtual Innovation Fest on Thursday, March 25, 2021, said this innovation is a big help to more Filipinos during these difficult times.

“If you won't use your data, you can use it for other things, so there's no wastage especially during these times when we all want to optimize,” she said. “Filipinos are always looking for ways to stretch their peso. This is one way of helping them during these difficult times so their spending could go a long way.”

Points from Globe Rewards can be used to redeem various products and services such as Viu subscriptions, GrabFood deliveries, gaming or Lazada credits.

Besides introducing data as currency, Globe also reinvented its GPlan by giving them GCash credits which they can spend for anything they want and need, whether it’s content subscriptions, shopping vouchers, or even home essentials like robot vacuums.

The new plan now offers unlimited all-net calls and texts, free GoWiFi when in transit, unlimited teleconsultation via KonsultaMD and three months insurance coverage via GInsure from Singlife with plan offers like GPlan with device, GPlan sim-only and GPlan with GCash.

"We know that our customers need mobile plans that fit right into their lifestyles and evolving needs. The GPlan gives them access to life's many other opportunities and perks, giving them more power to reinvent experiences on their own and of those around them," said KD Dizon, head of Globe’s Mobile Business.

For its home broadband business, Globe At Home is boosting its plans’ speeds so customers may enjoy a faster and robust connectivity experience at home. Likewise, it has ramped up its entertainment and health freebies through its Unli Fiber Up plan with speeds of up to 100Mbps for only P2,899.

The plan covers with three months worth of free GInsure medical coverage for Covid-19 and dengue of up to P140,500. Globe At Home customers will also have access to free three months medical consultation through the KonsultaMD Family Plan.

Customers may also choose their favorite entertainment via three months free access to Amazon Prime Video, HBO GO, and Viu Premium. For gamers, customers can enjoy Amazon Prime Gaming, which comes with the 3-month Amazon Prime Video access and offers in-game content for top games plus a selection of free games every month.

Helping businesses

Globe is also beefing up its services for the small and medium enterprises (SMEs).

The telco, for instance, through its Globe myBusiness has been assisting hotels, restaurants and cafes through the Safe Recovery Campaign. It offers solutions and services such as Amber, Rush and KonsultaMD. Amber helps businesses reach out to their client base while Rush enables businesses with reward programs for their loyal customers. Moreover, Globe myBusiness has partnered with SGS, the world’s leading testing, inspection and certification company to offer the Hygiene Monitored Program.

This program is a global initiative that aims to ensure the highest hygiene practices within hotels, restaurants, cafes, and other places of business. An SGS HM mark is an assurance to the customer that the establishment practices the best food safety methods.

“Many business owners have been facing additional challenges since the start of the pandemic. Globe myBusiness is their partner in recovery and ensures their own customers’ safety as they resume operations,” said Maridol Ylanan, head of strategy and marketing for Globe myBusiness.

For corporate customers, Globe Business helps in future-proofing businesses through connectivity, Cloud, cybersecurity, and a host of digital solutions, meant to reinvent the concept of 'anytime, anywhere.’
