Calling Credit Card Hotlines from the Province on the Cheap!

Calling Credit Card Hotlines from the Province on the Cheap

This post serves as a guide for fellow promdis like me who use credit cards and need to occasionally call their hotlines for one matter or another (and not rack up huge mobile phone bills in the process).

To give you a brief background, I grew up in the city with a PLDT landline (telebabad was life back then) but then later moved to a sorta rural municipality with no telephones. Cellphones were starting to be a thing then, so most households opted for cellphones instead and never bothered to get old-school landline telephones. πŸ€·πŸ½β€β™€οΈ

Fast forward to today, and I have several credit cards which I use for #adulting and all that shizz. There are times when I need to call the credit card company, like when a card was not delivered or when I need to inquire or clarify something. And while calling from my mobile is feasible, it pains me to rack up a huge phone bill while going through the automated menu and waiting to talk to a human operator. 😭 This is especially annoying when the waiting time turns out to be much longer than the actual conversation itself. 😫

Analog Year

By on December 27, 2016

These days it’s so easy to get caught up with technology.

That ever happen to you as well? It’s annoying, really. And frankly, quite disturbing too.

And no, this is not a sponsored or advertorial post either. I just happen to quite like the convenience of using this prepaid card. This is not my first prepaid card though, it just happens to be the one I’m using right now when I felt like blogging about it. ?

Wish List / Dream Board

By on December 14, 2015

So my birthday has passed and there’s only Christmas to look forward to [in terms of gifts]. And old mature (or not πŸ˜› ) as I now am, I still do like having something to look forward to. I mean, the occasion itself has already lost its magic for me, so.. but that’s another entire topic which I have no intention of discussing right now.

Anywho. I have made a couple of wish lists before (this and this), and thankfully I did end up actually getting at least an item or two from those listed. Nice, right? πŸ˜‰ So this year I am making another one. Although this one kinda doubles as a dream board too since I do plan on getting these eventually, wish or no. Ready?
