Smart, Western Union launch remittance service with rewards

Manila, Philippines – If you’re expecting remittances from relatives in Singapore, now’s the best time to encourage them to send the funds to your Smart mobile number via Western Union.

Smart Money and Western Union are raffling off 15 Samsung Galaxy Mini 5570 units to people in Singapore who will use Western Union’s mobile money transfer services to send remittances to a Smart number from now until August 26.

Each transaction made in participating Western Union agent locations will earn the money sender one electronic raffle entry to the Western Union and Smart Money Free Phone Promo.

The 15 lucky winners announced by the end of the promo period must present the winning transaction’s original receipt and a valid ID to claim their prize.

Smart subscriber-beneficiaries, who already have a Smart Money card, can withdraw the remittance from more than 10,000 BDO, BancNet, Megalink, and ExpressNet automated teller machines (ATMs) nationwide, and from almost 5,000 Smart Money Centers in the country.

They can also use their Smart Money account to do cashless shopping in more than 32 million MasterCard merchants worldwide.

Funds transferred to Smart Money electronic wallets – which are linked to the account holder’s Smart mobile phone – can also be used for mobile payment of utility bills (Meralco, Maynilad, PLDT, etc.), reloading Smart prepaid accounts, and money transfers to other Smart Money accounts.

Smart subscribers without a Smart Money account yet can still receive overseas remittances via Western Union’s mobile money transfer service. If a loved one abroad sends funds to their mobile number, they will receive a text notification advising them to open a Smart Money account and get the funds in any of the 100 Smart Stores nationwide.

Money senders from Singapore will not be the only ones receiving perks from Smart Money. Beneficiaries of all international remittances received via Smart Money will get international text credits worth P150 plus a chance to win up to P45,000 in cash, via Smart Money’s Doble Todo Panalo Promo* which is open until August 15.
