Globe EverybodyTxt20

Globe EverybodyTxt20

Sometimes I feel prepaid subscribers get better deals than us postpaid clients. Globe has just released a new promo for its prepaid subscribers dubbed EverybodyTxt20. So what is so great about this? Simple: your 20 pesos gets you 200 text messages to Globe/TM subscribers, plus an additional 20 for other networks. That’s like a 220–peso value from your 20 pesos!

To avail of this great deal, you can simply pay your e–load retailer 20 pesos and ask for EverybodyTxt20. If you would rather use your load, you can send ETXT<space>20 to 8888.

They also made a great TV ad to come with this promo; you’ve got to see it.
