Insane Deals at the Digital Walker Christmas Comes Early Sale!

The 'ber months are here and when Pinoys celebrate Christmas it's almost synonymous to sale! Speaking of sale, Digital Walker recently announced their #DWChristmasComesEarly sale and I just knew I need to be there for my early holiday shopping.

Early Friday morning, I found myself inside SM Megamall before stores even opened together with a few early birds who came for one thing -- to get first dibs at the great deals that Digital Walker has prepared for early Christmas shoppers like myself. 

As expected with any sale, lines went insanely long as the mall opened at 10am that it already reached the ground floor of the mall! Luckily, I was on the 10th spot in front of the line and was giddy for the doors to open at 12 noon!

We came in by batch, whenever someone goes out they let people in. I love the event organizers here because the system is actually better as to not crowd the products area too much in one go.

As soon as we went in, I immediately grabbed a shopping bag and checked the items on sale. The place is divided into different areas depending on how the big the discount it, the left most part is for the items with 90% off, then 70%, 50%, and 30% off.

Prices on items are not yet the discounted price so you need to bring out your calculator to compute how much the price is after the discount - you can also ask the staff for assistance about pricing.

Camera enthusiasts and travelers had a grand time choosing their new Crumpler Bags which are all 90% off as well. Really sorry for the blurry photos as we are hurrying up to get what we wanted hehe.

We also spotted Marshall Major and Minors on sale at the 30% off, too bad they were still waiting for the restock of the black & gold Major while we're there (and restocked when we're already at the cashier), I'd totally grab that right away.

Check out took a little time even though there are like 15 cashiers, once we got closer to the cashier we realized they are manually doing the receipts ala-CDR King style, not sure what's up with that but it made us wait for almost an hour in line.

Shopping Haul: We saved 9,245php today!

Here's my favorite part when I got shopping, looking through the stuff I bought and finding out how much I saved if I got them in regular price! 

Here's a quick look at my shopping haul which consists of mostly red items for some reason - this was not intended but I had good laugh when I got home and saw it.

  • Quirky Dock - 215 from 2150
  • Crumpler Camera Strap - 100 from 1050
  • Native Union Case - 100 from 1800
  • Incipio Case - 100 from 1295
  • Urbanears Medis Plus - 885 from 2950
  • Speck iPad Mini Flip - 200 from 1600

Overall, my total is 1600 but when you check out the original prices, I actually saved 9,245 today which feels so awesome because I have these new items at the fraction of the price!

Feeling itchy to shop? Well you're in luck because the Digital Walker Christmas Comes Early Sale is still on until October 2, 2016 at the SM Megamall - Megatrade Hall 3. Make sure to come really early as lines tend to get really long fast. Happy Shopping! :)

Disclosure: This blog post is no way sponsored by Digital Walker - yes, I fell in line like all of you too. :P

Beauty at Your Fingertips with BeautyMNL

Pinoys are really fond of shopping online, just check out the online shops sprouting left and right over the past few years aiming to take a bite of that new market. Most online shopping sites focus on food and home products, so I'm excited when I discovered BeautyMNL!

In case you don't know, BeautyMNL is a website with two parts, one is a magazine type page where you see beauty and health articles which mainly focuses on ladies. While their shop let's you grab the things they mentioned in their articles with just a few clicks.

I know what you're thinking gents, how about us? Well, don't worry because they also offer a few products specifically for men while most of their products can also be used by dudes like us, you can also score awesome gift ideas for your girlfriend that will certainly make her one happy girl.

First Time Buying at BeautyMNL

Of course, I didn't pass up the opportunity to try BeautyMNL when they got in touch and invited me to do a test run of their site and service. Everything in this review are of course, what I experienced when I tried to buying at their shop for the first time.

Signing Up

Signing up is quite a breeze, you'll just have to provide basic detail such as email address, full name, gender, and a few questions about your skin type and features.

Although, note for gents that the choices are aimed for ladies like for the 'features' field, your options are still Chinita, Mestiza, and Morena even if you put your gender as male. These are required to be answered so I just answered Chinita on that field even though I'm Chinito just so I could continue the sign-up hehe.

After signing-up, I logged on to my account and started look through the products available on the site. The interface is definitely user-friendly and categorized properly so you can easily find the item you are looking for, you can even see the brands list so you can check if your favorite brand is included.

Purchasing and Check-Out

Purchasing is really simple, you just check the products and add it to your cart. Once done, just check-out and choose your payment option for your orders.

I was surprised to see some freebies in my cart when I started adding the items I was going to order. I found out that they do this for all orders. Yay Freebies! Also, they have awesome Korean brands available such as DeweyTreeInnisfree, COSRX, Skinfood, and Tony Moly.

Upon check-out, you'll be asked for your shipping details, so make sure to fill-out the details correctly so you can receive your orders faster.

After that comes the payment step, I was happy to see that they have different payment methods which is perfect for everyone who loves online shopping. Their payment methods are Paypal (which is my favorite way to pay, btw), Credit Card, Online Bank Transfers, Over-the-Counter Bank Deposit, and even Cash-On-Delivery (COD) for Metro Manila orders below 5,000php.

Once you're done, you'll have a chance to look at your orders and wait for it to arrive. For Metro Manila orders it takes just 24 hours before it gets delivered, but when you order or Friday or weekends it gets delivered to the nearest weekday which is Monday. As for provincial orders, it takes 3-5 working days to get delivered, depending on where you are.

Delivery and Shopping Haul

I ordered on a Friday evening around 10pm -- don't judge my online shopping habit haha I tend to shop online around in the evening until early morning for some reason. September 5th, Monday when I received an email informing me that my orders has been shipped. A couple of hours later, the delivery guy is already at my door with my orders!

The package came in this really nice BeautyMNL branded resealable plastic pouch. I love how they used a resealable pouch instead of the normal plastic bags that online shops usually use - you know, the ones where you need to tear it open and throw in the trash, not really good for the environment. So +1 to BeautyMNL for that!

As for my orders, I got an assortment of stuff not only for me but also for my loved ones. Here's the complete list of what I've got, you can click each link to get them at BeautyMNL.

I also got a few freebies which you can also get with every purchase at BeautyMNL! (F) Pond's BB Cream Sample 25g and (G) TRESemmé Keratin Smooth Shampoo & Conditioner Sample. Remember, that freebies vary and has limited quantity only.

BeautyMNL Shopping Verdict

Overall, I love my first time shopping experience with BeautyMNL and already planning my next purchase from them. Aside from the wide range of beauty and skin care products, they also have accessories and storage products.

One of the suggestions that I would to love see soon on BeautyMNL is a wishlist or save item feature so you can have a private list of the things you love on the site so you can just easily access your list when you're ready to buy them. Also, more items for guys please, more items to make us more gwapo.
