Just in time for the Holiday season, Smart Communications is showering its subscribers with a lot of exciting perks, rewards, bigger data allocation– and the most affordable LTE-capable smartphone!
Smart made a string of announcements during its latest Unbox event, coinciding with the launch of a bigger and brighter Smart Flagship Store at SM Annex in North EDSA. The flagship store features the brand’s trademark state-of-the-art interactive walls and activity tables to better engage and serve customers.
“We remain committed in our vision of making every Filipino break norms and embrace the multiple opportunities that the digital world brings. This is why we are unveiling bigger and better data packages for our subscribers, and welcome stronger partnerships with device makers and content providers,” said Kat Luna-Abelarde, Smart Wireless Consumer Operations Head.
“This Christmas, we are also empowering our subscribers with more convenient and rewarding ways to enjoy digital services at their fingertips, turning their phones into a wallet they can use to purchase load, shop online, book an Uber, or subscribe to the latest hit series – among a list of endless possibilities,” she added.
Richer digital lifestyle with more data
Smart subscribers may now experience a worry-free digital lifestyle with Giga Plans, the telco’s best-ever postpaid data offers with 10 times more data than its previous plans, a free app and unlimited texts to all networks.
Giga Plans is the perfect match for the latest handsets on the market, as these gadgets are best experienced with the biggest data plans available to consumers.
“Data under Smart Postpaid’s Giga Plans will definitely provide a richer digital lifestyle for our Smart users. And since we are doing network improvements all over the country, digital services under Smart is just bound to get even better,” said Kathy Carag, Head of Smart’s Mobile Marketing.
Furthermore, with the new line-only Giga Plans, Smart users can do everything with twice as much data as handset plans – from binge-watching movies on iflix, keeping Waze running on out of town trips, and even post as many photos and videos on Snapchat, Instagram and Facebook.
If Smart Postpaid has Giga Plans, Smart Bro’s New Postpaid Plans have also been upgraded to offer more data for sharing online connectivity across gadgets, or with friends, anytime and anywhere. Smart Infinity, Smart’s premium postpaid brand, will also be rolling up data plans of up to 60GB allocation for members.
To monitor subscribers’ consumption of data and other services, Smart has boosted the My Smart app, a mobile and desktop platform that allows each user to manage their accounts conveniently. On this app, people are able to check their billing, their data usage and subscribe to different data promos. Prepaid users are also able to use the service to monitor their load, purchase additional credit and register to promos.

Payment solution for the shopping season
Smart recently introduced exclusive prepaid load and online shopping discounts through PayMaya, the country’s leading digital payments mobile app that allows users to get an instant virtual prepaid MasterCard that they can use for digital purchases.
By downloading the PayMaya app on their Android or iOS phones and registering with their Smart, TNT, or Sun mobile number, subscribers will be able to instantly get a virtual prepaid Smart MasterCard, which they can load up and use in millions of online merchants and digital services worldwide that accept MasterCard.
Smart subscribers who download the PayMaya app and use their virtual prepaid Smart MasterCard can also get as much as 10% discount on Smart prepaid load when they buy in-app, as well as enjoy exciting perks and discounts from Zalora, Jollibee, and many other big brands soon.

Smart is also beefing up its lineup of roaming services to suit the diverse needs of today’s travelers.
With Smart Chat Abroad, Smart Prepaid subscribers now have another option when communicating back home. Smart Chat Abroad is a data roaming service that allows subscribers to use six popular chat messaging apps—Facebook Messenger, Viber, Telegram, WeChat, Line, and WhatsApp—while travelling in over 130 countries. The service comes at a fixed rate of only P150 per day.
