[September 1, 2021] As more Filipinos are taking their daily activities online, leading mobile services provider Smart Communications, Inc. (Smart) is boosting the GigaLife experience with GigaHello, an innovative way to enjoy Smart’s fastest data network as soon as subscribers activate a Smart Prepaid or TNT 5G-ready SIM.
Much like a red-carpet welcome, GigaHello gives users up to 9 GB FREE data plus calls and texts to all networks – the biggest perks that make it so much simpler for Smart subscribers to cover all their connectivity needs from the get-go.
“GigaHello is our big welcome to our new prepaid subscribers. This is just one of the ways we’re pulling out all the stops to delight our customers right from the very moment they make the Smart move and choose the country’s fastest mobile network as their provider,” said Jane J. Basas, SVP and Head of Consumer Wireless Business at Smart.
GigaHello to new subscribers
GigaHello freebies come in phases, with more data, calls, and texts dished out to subscribers at every step of their journey with Smart: from activating their SIM, registering to the GigaLife App, and topping up their account or registering to promos.
Upon activating the new Smart SIM, subscribers instantly get 1 GB open-access data, up to 30 minutes of calls to all networks, and 100 texts to all networks valid for three days, which they can use right away to access their favorite apps, browse their go-to websites, and connect to friends and loved ones through calls and texts.
Users also get an additional 1 GB open-access data valid for 3 days and 10 GigaPoints upon successfully registering to the GigaLife App. Moreover, subscribers get another 7 GB worth of the GIGA pack of their choice plus 100 minutes calls to all networks valid for 7 days upon topping up of at least Php100 load or subscribing to Php100 worth of promos within 7 days of activating their new SIM.
The new Smart 5G-ready SIM with GigaHello perks is now available at the Smart Online Store, the Smart Flagship Store on Lazada, and at accredited retailers nationwide.
Smart’s most comprehensive lineup of offers and promos
To make the most of the GigaLife, subscribers must download the GigaLife App, a powerful and handy app that caters to all the digital needs of Smart users. The app also works for users of PLDT Home wireless devices, who simply need to log into the GigaLife App using their device’s WiFi.
Downloadable on Google Play Store and the Apple App Store, the GigaLife App gives subscribers easy access to Smart’s most comprehensive lineup of data, call, text, and other exclusive offers. These include the generous GIGA offers, Unli Allnet Calls and Texts offers, Magic Data for non-expiring data for all sites, and the groundbreaking Unli Giga and Unli 5G offers for non-stop access to blazing-fast mobile internet connection, among many other offers.
Through the GigaLife App, subscribers can get the best value as they can easily choose and buy the offer that suits their passions and lifestyle anytime and anywhere. The GigaLife App also lets users conveniently check their account and promo balance, pay their bills, and keep track of their data usage.
Every time subscribers register to promos, pay their bills, or transact on the GigaLife App, they also get to earn and accumulate GigaPoints, which they can use to redeem data rewards, discounts, and other exclusive perks.
For example, Smart subscribers were able to put their GigaPoints to good use last May as they redeemed the exclusive limited-edition Smart + BTS photocards using their GigaPoints. Every month, Smart subscribers are also able to exchange their GigaPoints for discounted data promos.
Smarter way to pay on the GigaLife App through GigaPay
Smart subscribers can also earn and accumulate more GigaPoints every time they transact using GigaPay with PayMaya, the new convenient payment feature within the GigaLife App.
GigaPay enables customers to link their PayMaya account to the GigaLife App to make it their payment source for all their in-app transactions. This way, buying promos on the app is simpler and more seamless – there’s no need to switch between apps and do multiple log-ins to multiple accounts just to top up one’s Smart account. Smart users can also use GigaPay to reload at all available PayMaya cash-in touchpoints nationwide and keep track of all their transaction history so they are always on top of their expenses.
“Being with Smart and enjoying the GigaLife comes with truly rewarding experiences that are based on our thoughtful knowledge of what our customers need and want as they pursue their passions. Our subscribers can definitely expect bigger rewards and more exciting experiences from us as we continue to enrich their digital lifestyle,” said Basas.
