I tried to checkout with a $79 worth na jacket ... hindi daw eligible yung jacket sa Metrobank na coupon

maybe because the promo requires a minimum 100$.

I checked my cart and it seems okay naman (one Crucial 1tb sata ssd and samsung sd card) but nabasa ko ito:

now i am having second thoughts on ordering the ssd because it might get held up in customs and OMB.

i had other items and total was around $150, but the jacket was not eligible so I jus treplaced it with another item (an SSD as the prices were really cheap) ... so my order finally came through with the $30 discount ... the delivery date though is quite tool long, ordered yesterday and delivery is between Dec. 9-16, kaya pala free shipping to the Philippines, sa barko yata isasakay ... I had an order in September under standard shipping, within 5 days dumating

I have a Metrobank CC voucher for a 30% discount on a 100$ purchase and i can't think if anything to buy right now hahahaha

Is this a one time use per account or per order?

$30 max discount. Sa virtual cards ba pwedeng later ka na mag cash-in after mo gamitin?  Ayoko lang kasi mag maintain ng balance sa Maya, mag load lang pag gagamitin.

Pansin ko, depends heavily on the seller/vendor when nilang i-process ang payment, after you check-out.

Ilang recent orders ko (SSD's, HDD's ,etc) took more than a week, bago nila kunin sa MAYA virtual card ........ yung iba naman took just a few days.

LBC sa akin.  One item was received in exactly one week.  Another in two weeks.

Saw an early Black Friday deal at Amazon ........ SAMSUNG Galaxy Tab A7 Lite, with the PAYMAYA promo, it comes down to around P4,500.

Ordered a book for my son a few weeks ago. Arrived with torn spine and some torn pages. Reported for return and replacement right away. "Replacement" package arrived today but it was just a flat Amazon Prime shipping sleeve inside a flat LBC plastic... no book.

Could that be the return sleeve for the damaged book?

Sa checkout ko usually nakikita yan. Before placing may option if in PHP or USD.
