Switching to Watsons helps shoppers save for other things

SAVING AN EXTRA dime for your dream vacation, or that gadget you’ve been wanting to have, or a new car maybe isn’t easy. You’d agree. But it’s doable, isn’t it?

Those who are friends with me on Facebook, and offline know that saving extra for the things we want, and may need in the future has always been part of my advocacy.

So having been invited to join Watsons’ ‘Switchers Surprise’ campaign that was launched on Tuesday, January 26 at the SM Mall of Asia was a great pleasure.

Along with a few bloggers, we witnessed how lucky shoppers got a surprise of their lives by winning awesome surprises from Watsons by choosing Watsons Label products. These include a wide range of selected products from personal care to generic medicines like Watsons Glutathione, Watsons Travel Hair Dryer, Watsons Argan Oil Hair Conditioner, Watsons Body Scrub, Watsons Collagen, and Watsons Breath Strips, among others.

During designated hours of the day, shoppers who pick up specially marked Watsons Label products instantly get the chance to win fabulous prizes, such as a flatscreen TV, a Macbook Air, and a trip for 2 to Hong Kong!

The lucky shoppers were guided to a specially designed booth where they get their surprise – a most coveted prize personally handed by celebrity endorsers Lorna Tolentino, Iya Villania, Tessa Prieto-Valdes, Patty Laurel-Filart and Christian Bautista!

Lucky indeed!

We all know that most Filipinos would disregard such pleasures as budget, more often than not, is allocated to most essential things in life. Food for the table. Groceries. Personal grooming items. Medicines. And a lot.

This is where Watsons ‘Switchers Surprise’ comes in.

“Watsons, Asia’s leading health and beauty retailer, helps customers to shop wisely and strategically by providing them with quality products at friendly prices,” says the retail giant in a statement.

“This 2016, Watsons further rewards its smart shoppers who make the switch through the campaign, which brings to life the idea that “by switching to the Watsons label, customers are able to save money for things they really want or that matters the most to them,” the statement added.

Karen Fabres, Group Marketing Manager of Watsons Philippines said, “Our customers shop at Watsons to save on the things they really want in life” and with the Switcher’s Surprise promo, some of them just took home that thing they’ve saving up for but with a single purchase.

“It’s definitely a lot easier to enjoy what life has to offer when you choose to Switch and Save the Watsons way,” she added.

Watsons’ newest endorser, Lorna Tolentino said she switched to Watsons Generics for her medicine and vitamins.

“Women at any age need to keep themselves looking and feeling healthy and with Watsons Generics, you are guaranteed to get quality medicine and save as much as 80 percent,” the actress said.

Watsons Label believes that with more value from hard-earned money spent on quality affordable products, every Filipino gets more savings to enjoy the other important things in life with their loved ones. With a wider variety of products, from personal care items, beauty essentials, and now medicine, Asia’s leading personal care store provides smart shoppers the choice to save as much as 80 percent without compromising on quality.

In addition to Switcher Surprise, Watsons also has the Watsons Buy 2 Take 1 Promo on selected Watsons Label Products from January 22 to March 2016.

How about you, what you saving up for? Time to save on other things so to have more budget for what you really want. You deserve it, after all.
