Imagine yourself doing your regular personal care product shopping at Watsons SM Mall of Asia.
And then after selecting to purchase a specially marked Watsons brand product, a team of uniformed attendants grabs you and lead you to a mysteriously covered booth inside the store where a Watsons celebrity endorser was waiting to give you a special surprise!
Cameras all around flashing, confettis in the air and you’re surrounded by excited people cheering for you – your one moment of fame topped only by the prize that you have on your hands!
This is exactly the scenario for a couple of shoppers who visited Watsons SM Mall of Asia last January 26 to 28.
I was there last Thursday (January 28) with some blogger friends and witnessed first-hand how the Watsons SWITCHERS SURPRISE promo happened to two lucky shoppers!
Here are some blogger friends shopping some items at WATSONS SM MOA before the SWITCH AND SAVE Shoppers Surprise happened!
The first shopper got a brand new iPhone 6S from celebrity endorser Patty Laurel-Filart after selecting a specially marked Watson Body Scrub while another shopper later that day got a Macbook Air laptop from Tessa Prieto-Valdes by choosing to buy a specially marked Watsons Treatment Wax.
“On top of the savings they get from purchasing Watsons Label products, our loyal shoppers have also gotten used to receiving cute items and tokens, so this year we decided to raise the stakes and reward them with something truly unforgettable,” says Karen Fabres, Group Marketing Manager of Watsons Philippines
Aside from Patty and Tessa, the other celebrities who participated in the SWITCH AND SAVE campaign promo were Lorna Tolentino, Iya Villania and Christian Bautista who have given fabulous prizes like Flatscreen Television, 50,000 Pesos worth of shopping spree and a Trip for 2 to Hong Kong!
Watsons is Asia’s leading health and beauty retailer operating in 12 Asian and European countries including China, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Macau, Singapore, Thailand, Malaysia, Korea, Indonesia, Turkey, Ukraine and the Philippines.
The brand believes that with more value from hard-earned money spent on quality affordable products, everyone 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, Watsons provides smart shoppers the choice to save as much as 80 percent without compromising on quality.
“Our customers shop at Watsons to save on the things they really want in life, but with the Switcher’s Surprise promo, they might just bring home that thing they’ve saving up for but with a single purchase,” Fabres says. “It’s definitely a lot easier to enjoy what life has to offer when you choose to Switch and Save the Watsons way.”
The WATSONS Switch and Save brand include a wide range of selected products from personal care to generic medicines like Glutathione, Travel Hair Dryer, Argan Oil Hair Conditioner, Body Scrub, Collagen, and Breath Strips, and many others.
In addition to the Switcher Surprise, the store also has the BUY 1 TAKE 1 and BUY 2 TAKE 1 Promos on selected products until March 2016.
