Then Overseas Filipino Security Guard Piolo Pascual shares ‘Part of protecting your hard-earned money is choosing the right remittance partner’

How to open a BDO Kabayan savings account.

Piolo Pascual temporarily left showbiz at age 19 to join his mom and other siblings in California, USA. There, he juggled two jobs, working as a hospital staff during the day and as a security guard in downtown Los Angeles at night. He was working almost 16 hours a day, only to make ends meet. While very challenging, he said his life abroad was full of valuable lessons, which helped him achieve financial freedom.

Piolo Pascual as a doubly-worked Overseas Filipino

When I migrated to the US, I had to start from scratch. I had to work right away or else I wouldn’t have any food on the table,” he said of his early struggles.

“I had two jobs because my salary was not enough to pay for my insurance, my car, my rental, my food, and allowance,” Piolo added.

Two years after moving to the US, he decided to go back home. He wanted to give acting another try. While his years as an OF didn’t last long, he credits much of his success to the valuable lessons he learned while living and working abroad.

“I wouldn’t be what I am today if it weren’t for the hardships I went thru as an OF. I learned to work very hard to be able to pay for things but at the same time, I learned not to spend beyond my means. It really takes discipline to be practical and not buy things that you really do not need,” he emphasized.

More importantly, he learned that part of protecting your hard-earned money is choosing the right remittance partner, one that not only promises convenience but security as well.

Piolo Pascual as a then dependent of an Overseas Filipino

“My mom was already in the US when we were growing up. At that time, it was so hard for us to get money from her for our schooling. We would then go to an agency, which would charge us with all sorts of fees. BDO really changed the landscape of remittance. They made it easy for Filipinos overseas to send money to their loved ones,” he said.

A12CCAE3-39F8-4540-BC0A-D830892122D9BDO Remit is the global remittance service brand of BDO, the largest bank in the Philippines. BDO Remit’s flagship service—BDO Kabayan Savings—is the heart of bank’s service to the Overseas Filipinos and their families. Through this service, customers receive remittances in a fast, safe and convenient manner, and at the same time, are entitled to unique and long-term benefits that aim to protect their future such as free life and accident insurance.

By having an account, you build credit history with the bank, making it easier for you to apply for a car, home, or business loan in the Philippines.

As a former OF, Piolo said he knows how much our kababayans abroad sacrifice just to be able to provide for their families back home and so he cautions OFs against sending money to just any remittance agency especially those they just happen to see online.  

You are entrusting your hard-earned money to others. Always go for someone who is trustworthy, who has a track record, and who has been there for a long time. The last thing that you want to happen is for your money not to reach your loved ones. That’s why I always choose BDO. With BDO, you are confident that your money will be safely remitted to your loved ones back home,” he said.

KathNiel in latest action-packed ‘#BalikBayad’ ad: ‘PayMaya allows you to earn money rewards, make more time, experience greater convenience’

KathNiel represents the exciting and energetic cashless lifestyle of the PayMaya users.

The most rewarding mobile wallet in the Philippines, PayMaya, launches its latest campaign “BalikBayad” with “Teen Royalities” Kathryn Bernardo and Daniel Padilla (KathNiel). The campaign video, described by viewers in the comment section as “cute and astig”, contains action-packed scenes showing the benefits when “You don’t pay cash. Paymaya!”.

The #BalikBayad Campaign

The #BalikBayad campaign is a follow-up to PayMaya’s widely successful “Don’t Pay Cash. PayMaya!” campaign last year.

This campaign aims to highlight the monetary rewards in a form of cashback users get when they participate in PayMaya’s various promos for bills payment, buying load, paying for goods and services via QR, online shopping, and sending money, among many others. In fact, this February alone, PayMaya users can get as much as P6,000 from those cashless payment transactions.

PayMaya has also expanded the list of merchants and establishments under its PayMaya Preferred program, which gives additional cashback to users who scan to pay with PayMaya QR on top of the regular cashback that they usually receive. Some of these new partners include Landers Superstore, Mercury Drug, KFC, Robinson’s Department Store, Total Alabang and Valenzuela, and Toys ‘R Us, among many others.

“We’re very excited to have KathNiel representing the ‘BalikBayad’ campaign, because just as these two big celebrity icons have made a comeback for PayMaya this year, our users can also expect something to come back–in the form of cashback–every time they use PayMaya instead of cash,” said Mark Jason Dee, Head of Growth and Marketing of PayMaya.

The Campaign Video

Set as a typical ‘90’s action movie complete with guns, goons, and even the penultimate “Pinoy Kontrabida” in the form of Rez Cortez, the campaign video features the two young celebrities using the powers of PayMaya to tackle everyday transactions that are typically paid with cash, such as grocery shopping, paying bills, buying load, and online shopping, among many others. The PayMaya jingle which is set to the tune of the hit ‘90’s Eraserheads song “Ligaya,” was also featured in most of the scenes.

AN ACTION-PACKED “BALIKBAYAD” ADVENTURE WITH FRIENDS AND FOES. Local movie and TV celebrities Kathryn Bernardo and Daniel Padilla were officially unveiled as the newest brand ambassadors for PayMaya’s “BalikBayad” campaign through an action-packed video where they battle a common foe—cash. Present during the launch were the actors who played the “villains” in real life, led by veteran actor Rez Cortez (5th from right) along with his motley band of “goons” (seated). Supporting “KathNiel” during the launch, meanwhile, were they real-life friends Dominic Roque (leftmost), Ria Atayde (2nd from right), Juan Miguel Severo (2nd from right), and Joe Vargas (rightmost). Also in the photo are PayMaya executives led by Founder and CEO Orlando Vea (4th from left), President Shailesh Baidwan (4th from right), Head of Marketing and Growth Mark Jason Dee (3rd from right), and Heidi Garayblas (3rd from left).

The #BalikBayad campaign video is KathNiel’s come-back project after more than a year of not being seen together on-screen.

“PayMaya is a young and fun brand and we’re definitely lucky to have collaborated with Kathryn and Daniel in this campaign, because they represent the exciting and energetic lifestyles of most of our users,” Dee added.

“We are thrilled to roll out more PayMaya Preferred promos in the coming months and work with merchant partners in offering customers an easier, more convenient, and more rewarding way to pay—taking us a step closer to a more digital and cashless society,” Raymund Villanueva, Head of Growth and Brand Marketing at PayMaya.

This Christmas season, unwrap better PayMaya Preferred deals when you start your holiday gift-shopping at Robinsons Department Store and Toys ‘R Us. More exciting deals from KFC, Rustans Supermarket, Shopwise, Wellcome, and Powerfill are also waiting for you in December! PayMaya is looking to work with more partner merchants to offer the best deals and rewards for all. 

Yes. We just love spending during the Holidays. But as you shop at your favorite supermarkets, retail stores, fast food restaurants, gas stations, and pharmacies, prefer using PayMaya. With its PayMaya Preferred exclusive promos and discounts, you will definitely enjoy better value for your money than cash or credit card.
