Globe pioneers data as currency, launches life-enabling offers

Updated: Jun 15

UNUSED Globe data may now be converted into Globe Rewards points, which may also be used to redeem a wide range of products and services.

This latest innovation, called GBs to Points, introduces data as currency and applies to any Globe product whether mobile, Home Prepaid WiFi, or Reward for loyalty.

For prepaid users, the conversion is 1 gigabyte (GB) = 1 Rewards Point. For Postpaid, 1GB = 10 Rewards points. For Home prepaid WiFi, 3GBs = 3 Rewards.

Issa Guevarra-Cabreira, Globe deputy chief commercial officer, said gigabytes or GBs may be converted into points at any time within the promo validity or before the plan’s cut-off date.

This is among the first-to-market offers that Globe launched on March 25 to help customers cope with the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic.

Cabreira said these are made possible with the improved connectivity from Globe.

“Today, Filipinos have better connectivity with truly proactive service here and abroad, powered by the largest mobile network and the fastest-growing 4G network in the country. More advanced technologies are also in place such as 5G and fiber plus pervasive network improvements,” Cabreira said.

Globe’s 5G services are available in 80 percent of Metro Manila, and parts of Cebu and Davao.

Globe also launched recently 5G roaming services across Asia, Middle East, North America, and several countries in Europe.

The 5G roaming service is available to Filipinos traveling internationally, as well as subscribers of select foreign telcos visiting the Philippines.
