The hardest gift to give is the one that has it all, they say. That’s why shopping for my father on Father’s day has always been a struggle. I mean, what else can you give someone who’s literally given you everything (and has way more stuff than you do)? I could recall countless engraved Pilot Ballpens, neck ties, Mugs with World’s Best Dad stamped on it and a whole lot of cliché buys from yesteryears.
What I realize is that most Dads, if they were like mine, would like time, companionship and creating good memory with their sons or daughters and that would mean the world to them (of course an expensive watch wouldn’t hurt but we’re in a crisis, people, let’s be practical haha). This trio of good moments usually accompany a round of good food (and booze when you’re of age) and that’s pretty much what PayMaya has in mind for this Father’s Day Celebration.
They have partnered with these amazing Food (and Drink) establishments to offer you a wide range of options to satisfy any craving and get your Father’s Day celebration on its way. With restaurants still not allowing people to dine-in this is the next best option.
Plus, when you use PayMaya to order out on these establishments particularly during this Father’s Day weekend, you may just end up getting 100%* of your money back with their cash-back promo.
*(It usually caps at 300-500 pesos)
Frankies – you have not lived until you’ve tried Frankie’s Chicken Wings! Scrumptious, juicy and full of flavor these wings have been a hangout special and a huge hit among residents of Ortigas. Expanded to a slew of other places in the Metro, Frankies can satisfy your chicken craving with their original New York-Style Buffalo Chicken Wings or mix and match other flavors (we highly recommend the Garlic-Parmesan). Also, if at all possible, try their Salisbury Steak as well. It’s a delight! You can check more of their menu here: (https://frankiesnywings.com/)
Army Navy – want a little Tex Mex with a twist, take an order (or two) out from Army Navy. No frills, just a ton of flavor. Army Navy specializes on belly-filling Burritos or have them serve up some California Burgers. Don’t forget to wash those down with their signature Liber-Tea (which comes in a friggin mason jar if you have it delivered) and a side of Freedom Fries! Order some here: (https://armynavy.com.ph/)
Central Delivery – Can’t decide which cuisine to zero-in on? Central Delivery could help you out. It’s a portal that lets you in on some Popeye’s Chicken for some yummy chicken n’ biscuits, or Kuya J’s for some Pinoy food specials or go Italian with De Gianni Cucina Italiana. Or order from all and have a United Nations food sampling table set up in your dining area. Order from Central Delivery here: (https://centraldelivery.ph/)
Soban K-Town Grill – If you’ve been missing all-you-can-eat Korean Barbecues, you’d be happy to know that PayMaya also partnered with Soban K-Town Grill. Order your meats and cook it at the comfort of your own home while you happily devour a couple of Kdramas on Netflix. Check out Soban K-Town Grill here: (http://www.soban.ph/)
Boozy.ph – Finally, to round everything off, get your Dad some premium malt whiskeys and have a glass or two as you bond over whatever topic comes to mind. If that’s not his jam, there’s imported, local and artisan craft beers to choose and discover. Order from Boozy here: (https://boozy.ph/)
Those are but a small sample of where you can shop via PayMaya. To do so, all you have to do are these simple steps:
- Order your meals at the website of your chosen restaurant.
- Proceed to checkout and choose the online payment/credit card option.
- You will be redirected to the PayMaya Checkout page. Here, click the Pay with PayMaya button.
- Log in using your PayMaya mobile number and password.
- An SMS with the One-Time Pin (OTP) will be sent to your mobile number. Key in the OTP on the webpage to verify your transaction.
- Wait for the SMS from PayMaya to confirm your payment.
And that’s pretty much it! Seriously, I’ve had about more than 1000 pesos worth of cashback ever since I started using PayMaya.
