BONGGA! Who would’ve thought that years after making the bagwa seem scary, the haunting hymn and item from the movie Feng Shui would become an iconic ad for an e-commerce platform?
Shopee recently named the Queen of All Media, Kris Aquino, as their new brand ambassador for the Shopee 11.11-12.12 Big Christmas Sale and I’m stoked to see how Kris can make this much-awaited shopping season more enjoyable and a bit lighter for everyone, especially now that we’re all stressed with what has been happening for the past six months.
It’s an early Christmas for everyone as the app is now filled with new holiday-themed in-app games, amazing deals, promos, and Shopee even has a star-studded TV special coming up. However, Kris will not just be a pretty face for the platform. The partnership includes a digital charity sale for foundations that are being supported by the generous actress. Probably the best part and essence of Christmas, TBH. Since it’s the season of giving, Shopee Bayanihan: Pamaskong Pambata was also officially launched to help raise funds in support of organizations like PGH Medical Foundation, GMA Kapuso Foundation, FundLife, World Vision Philippines, Ronald McDonald House Charities, Save the Children, and Project SMILE. Anyone can donate through the app starting this week!
Aside from giving back, expect to also see a Krissy-fied feed starting today as she takes over Shopee’s Instagram stickers, TikTok account, Shopee Live, and Shopee’s TV special.
As early as October 21 to December 12, shoppers can look forward to exciting games, amazing deals, and big discounts from leading brands, such as:
- Unbeatable Christmas deals on Shopee: Users can enjoy free shipping with ₱0 minimum spend, daily 20% coins cashback on best treats like a Xiaomi 32-inch LED TV, a Dyson Cyclone Cordless Vacuum Cleaner, and Christmas baubles such as decorative ornaments and village nativity sets.
- ₱1 Deals: Consumers can expect ₱1 deals on selected items from various categories such as beauty, fashion, mobile, and stationery products.
- Exclusive deals from leading brands: Users can anticipate up to 70% off on 11.11’s leading brands such as Pampers, Nestle, Vivo, Globe, Havaianas, Unilever Beauty, Abbott, Garnier, realme, and Enfagrow.
Additionally, Closeup, Pond’s, Lifebuoy, Dove, Creamsilk, TRESemmé, Colgate-Palmolive, Comfort, Nivea, ACE, Union Appliances, Kyowa, Patagonia Foods Philippines, Candy Corner, Inspi, Organic Official, Crown, Mikana, Shigetsu, Universal Robina Corporation, GSK – Sensodyne, and Goldriver Management (Beauti Drink Collaskin) will give out amazing deals. Shopee users can also enjoy fantastic promotions from brands like Spyder, SoFab!, Figlia, Herschel, Johnson & Johnson (Aveeno, Johnson’s Baby, Modess, Neutrogena, Listerine), Garnier, Klean Kanteen, Nokia, and Robinson’s Appliances.
It seems that we’ll now have more reasons to add-to-cart and give back without worries of exposing ourselves to the virus until the year ends. After all, Christmas is a must-celebrate occasion for every Filipino family.
