As part of its annual 917 Day celebration, Philippine telco Globe Telecom has launched a virtual amusement park called GIFLand. GIFLand features new offerings, treats, and activities that are in store for Globe customers, which they can access right at their fingertips. Bianca Wong, Head of the Feel Valued Tribe at Globe, said people could enjoy GDay Everyday at GIFLand and share their rewards with communities needing help.

“Our bayanihan (community spirit) is playing a crucial role in helping our fellow Filipinos face our current challenges. And, we want to give our customers the opportunity to further ignite this bayanihan spirit. Which is why with GDay Everyday, we reward our customers and at the same time, empower them to support the wider community through Globe’s 15 partner beneficiaries,” Wong said in a press statement.

917 Day

An example of this is Globe’s G Legends Cup, an amateur mobile gaming tournament that lets winners share their prize with their beneficiary of choice. Other exciting activities include G Chance the Raffle, the G Super Sale, G Business Summit, and G Music Fest where customers’ participation in each program contributes to collective support to Globe’s partner beneficiaries.

Customers can also use their Globe Rewards points to donate to sustainability partners that support education, environment, health and well-being, poverty reduction, and disaster relief.

Another innovation launched at GIFLand is Shop & Pay, a self-service, highly-interactive one-stop shop for all a customer’s essentials in Globe.

Whether it’s a request for a mobile or broadband plan, a handset, or 917 apparel and merchandise, the new Globe Shop & Pay is sure to make transacting with Globe safer and more convenient for customers. It also features a vending machine to pay bills, buy load, call card or SIM, and cash-in via GCash.

At the GDay Circus Tent, Globe also unveiled the new GlobeOne Super App, which combines the features and experiences of all existing apps — GlobeOne, TM, Globe At Home, and Globe Rewards. It aims to be the one app that will empower Globe customers to access all of their essential transactions and accounts, be it topping up their prepaid mobile or broadband plans, redemption of rewards or payment of bills.

Globe Prepaid Brand Head Eric Tanbauco also unveiled GoCREATE, an exclusive feature on the GlobeOne app that allows prepaid customers to take charge and customize their own promo.

September 17 or 917 is the time of the year when Globe shows its appreciation to its loyal customers. It is inspired by the company’s original and longstanding 917 prefix.
