How to Shop Wisely and Earn Points with Penshoppe App

Last Saturday was an exciting day for me.

I’ve finished my blog posts and scheduled for the next 2-months (yeah!) but still have many stories waiting for me to touched up – they are all right in front of me.

But I wasn’t feeling in the mood to write.

So I decided to visit SM Aura Premier for my weekly supermarket shopping, and to gather inspiration so when I get back home, am ready to work again.

Maybe for some, supermarket shopping is a complete buzz killer, but for me it is my opportunity to reboot, and wonder like a kid checking the chocolate stalls which I know I won’t bother buying, LOL.

But this story will not focus on grocery shopping.

This story is about something else that am sure the frugal fashion ladies and gents out there will pay attention.

So I went to SM Aura Premier visited the Penshoppe store when I’ve found out that I still have those gift certificates that was given to me as gift last year.

Penshoppe is a global Filipino lifestyle brand which have gained its names internationally, thanks to the continued support of its customers worldwide especially by the Filipinos. And having
international brand ambassadors like Gigi Hadid, Dara Park, etc. makes Penshoppe’s presence to the international market more fruitful.

Okay, wondering if those gift certificates are already expired (yeah because most of gift certificates have expiration, which is actually against the law – and I’ll make a separate post about it soon!), I took a chance of visiting Penshoppe and inquire if my gift certificates are still valid.

With the help of their super accommodating Manager (sorry, am not good with names!) he told me that my gift certificates worth Php1,000 are STILL VALID.

Hhhooooorraayyy!

That’s awesome, and I felt relieved.

You see, I have tons of gift certificates that I forgot using because I forgot I have them.
(I wish there’s an app to help me remind of my gift cheques, lol).

However, no worries because the gift cheques are still valid. The question is:

WHAT WILL I BUY AT PENSHOPPE STORE???????

I decided to roam around the store and checked the clothes and accessories they have. Though honestly I admit I got a little hard time picking which pieces I will get. My personal style is quite contrasting to what they have, so for me it’s quite a challenge.

And I don’t have time visiting another Penshoppe store just to look for other clothes.

So yeah, I have to be patient and fingers-crossed.

Anyway, I was expecting that I will only get one (1) piece for my gift certificates.

But I took three (3) pieces which I thought are cute and functional enough for my needs.

I’ve got these pairs of embroidered slip-ons (SRP Php499), pairs of denim loafer (SRP699), and this backpack (SRP Php699).

As I’m in the counter and about to pay my damages and looking for my reliable credit card, Mr. Cashier told me that my bill is only Php1,057.00

What?!!! What kind of sorcery is this??!!!

He said that they are currently in a mid-year sale and most of their products are on huge discounts.
OMG what a perfect timing!

Then Mr. Cashier ask me if I have a Penshoppe app, because I could get additional 10% discount.

OMG that’s cool! I panicked a bit because I don’t have it, LOL

That’s still 10% discount and a frugal me that is a big deal.

But surprisingly I let it pass, and told Mr. Cashier that I don’t have it yet, hahaha and he told me that I should download it to gain rewards and points every time I would shop in Penshoppe stores.

Total damage is Php1,057.00 but I only cash-out Php57.00 and that’s cool!

The app features all Penshoppe's collection, including some news and updates about the brand and its brand ambassadors, both locally and international.

The app is very user-friend and so easy to navigate.

It will also ping you whenever there is a sale coming around from their stores, and that’s convenient.

And back to my very awesome shopping finds, here’s what I’ve got:

I find this black leather and embroidered slip-ons very cute and very traditional. Also the embroidery is so feminine and I love it! This slip-ons reminds me of Dolce & Gabbana Spring Summer 2015 collection so I didn’t hesitate to grab it. Gladly they have my size!

Actually price is Php499.00 – no discount

Next, I’ve got this embroidered denim loafers which reminds me of Chiara Ferragni shoe collection. They are so comfortable to my feet and I bet I will use this more especially I love to walk!

You might asked why I got this “beer and pizza” embroidery and you might also assumed that I am that kind of person – sorry babes!

The “beer and pizza” actually reminds me more of my Amore, so I happy bought them. 

Am a sweet girlfriend, you know!

Actual price is Php699 and dropped to Php229.00

And finally, I’ve got this cute backpack – it is functional and lightweight, and the colours reminds me of vacation! They also have place black which is very ordinary, and other colors like green, red, etc.

Regular price is Php699.00 and dropped to Php329.00

Isn’t it great discounts?!!!

And when I was trying to create my flatlay photo, I realized that the items I’ve got are perfect for my travel to Malaysia very soon!

Ohh my lord, what a perfect timing!

I’ll keep my Penshoppe app for my emergency street outfit shopping, and I love collection points!
