SM Prestige Card: Privilege in a Card

If there's one loyalty card that serves me well, it is the SM Prestige card.
SM Prestige is the elite membership program for
SM Advantage members who have reached the required spending level.

It is free and valid for two years.

So how do you get to be a SM Prestige card holder?

You have to be an active SMAC member 
and spend at least P300,000 within two years at SM and it's affiliate stores.
Automatic renewal is also free provided you have spent at least P150,000  
accross all SM establishments in two years.

That seemed a steep amount, but believe me, it's very attainable. 
I even ask hubby to get his own SMAC so we could turn it into our 2nd prestige card. :) :) :)

How will I know if I am already a qualified Prestige member?

You will be notified through transaction receipt, text, phone call or email.
But really, if you feel that you already reached the spending quota,
the easiest thing to do is just ask at the customer service.

Case in point: I used to bring my sis-in-law to burn time at the lounge 
when we wait for our kiddos. 
One day I urge her to ask the attendant about her spending and card status. 
She qualified, she even spend more than I do haha!

How do I claim my Prestige card?

Just  visit the customer service of any SM branch, present your SM Advantage card and a valid ID.

Here are the perks of being a Prestige cardholder:

1. Prestige Lounge - this is my most favorite perk. Prestige members  can take time off to relax from shopping, into spacious and comfortable seating in the Prestige lounge. They serve unlimited coffee, juice, tea and water. Of course, another reason I frequent the lounge is to use the clean restroom. :)

You can bring in maximum of two guests.

Prestige card could be used at any SM Prestige lounge. I've used my privilege at SM MOA and SM Aura Premier. I still love the SM Iloilo Prestige Lounge, it's not always crowded, comfy seats, clean restroom, helpful attendants. Yes, I'm biased like that. :)

2. Concierge services - this includes gift wrapping service,  bills payment assistance, inquiries and membership concerns.

3. Valet shopping assistance and priority fitting rooms - in valet shopping, you can ask assistance and you can leave the items you shopped at the lounge

4. Prestige courtesy lanes in SM Hypermarket, SM Supermarket, SM Savemore Market.

5. Free delivery with minimum purchase from SM Appliance and Ace Hardware.

6.  Exclusive discounts and freebies.

7. Redeemable points every time you shop at SM and its affiliate stores.

Extra 25 Bonus Points on Your SM Advantage Card

Are you like most of us? 

Burns the time at the mall.

If you are, chances are you have an SM advantage/prestige card. 

How to get that extra 25 points bonus? 

Just update your SM Advantage membership profile HERE.

You must have a valid email to confirm your registration/update. 

Email generated when you have previously provided them with your email.

I have been a SM Advantage member since 2006 and been a 

Prestige card holder right away, when they first introduced it.

How to be a Prestige card holder and it's perks and privileges, on the next blog.

Personally, apart from the 25 bonus points, I find registering my SM Prestige card a good thing.

Once registered, you can log on to your account and do the following:

1. View all your SMAC transactions and accumulated points.

2. Edit your Customer Information, email address and password.

3. Replace a Lost or Damaged Card.

4. Learn more about the SM Advantage Card, promos, events and privileges.

What I like most is being able to see all my transactions and see my spending. 
Also you can see your available bonus points. 
They also send an email informing you of how much you have spent so far in a given time.
 And this sometimes gives me a chuckle knowing the amount I spend. 

As of writing, I have 931 available points. 
You earn points every time you use your card, 1 point for every P200 purchase.
I accumulate my points for the entire year.
Every December I use the points to buy something 
for our home which we could use or display. 
It's sort of a souvenir for that year's spending.

It will take less than 5 minutes to register/update your card. 
Extra 25 bonus points promo is until June 30, 2016 only.
