Like with all things in this day and age, the art of gift-giving has also evolved over time. Nowadays, people have a lot of options when it comes to buying gifts and sometimes, it can get overwhelming.
But perhaps, of all the choices that are available in the market today, there is nothing more flexible and convenient than the gift of the SM Gift Pass (SMGP) Choice. The latest addition to SM’s product line-up, SMGP Choice aims to make gift-giving a more convenient, personalized, and relevant experience for both giver and receiver.
Here is a quick guide to SMGP Choice.
What is SMGP Choice?
SMGP Choice comes in the form of a card that has a scratchable film at the back, which reveals a 10-digit code and bar code. It can be used to purchase any item from SM Stores and affiliates. Designed with the gift givers and recipients in mind, it makes gift giving a hassle-free experience for everyone. The SMGP Choice comes in P100, P500, and P1000 denominations, and is powered by Sodexo.
Whether you’re going to give it as a gift to your loved ones, as a reward to your employees, or as a reward at an event, everyone will surely appreciate the flexibility that SMGP Choice affords them. What’s more is that SMGP Choice does not expire. You can use it right away and at any time, forever.
What is new with SMGP Choice?
SMGP aims to keep up with the demands of every mobile customer. After all, the shopping experience now happens anytime, anywhere! SMGP Choice is developed so that more and more recipients can enjoy more of the SM brands wherever they are in the country.
1. Wider Merchant Network
This product gives the recipient the power of Choice. Recipients of SMGP Choice can redeem in-store and, soon, even online. Eventually, they will also be able to redeem from more lifestyle and leisure SM brands.
2. Reward that keeps rewarding
Using SMGP Choice allows you to rake up SM Advantage or SM Prestige loyalty points too. All you need to do is to present upon payment both SMGP Choice and either your SM Advantage or SM Prestige card.
3. Easy to use
Just scratch the film and present to the cashier to pay. No card activation required.
4. Convertible to digital
In case you or your recipients want more flexibility, you’ll be happy to know that you can convert your SMGP Choice into Digital SMGP credits inside the Sodexo+ app. That means no longer having to worry about losing your physical SMGP Choice cards. Plus, you can also enjoy all the benefits of the Digital SMGP, including partial redemptions!
