'Para merry ang lahat': GCash guides Filipinos toward financial success this Christmas

MANILA, Philippines — The Christmas season is a testament to the value of unity and togetherness for Filipinos worldwide. In the true spirit of bayanihan, financial super app GCash leads the nation in delivering its mission of Finance for All through its financial literacy campaign, “Gets Agad”.

“We recognize that Filipinos face different financial struggles every day. This Christmas, we hope to empower our fellow countrymen to take control of their hard-earned money,” said Mark Ilao, GCash Market Education head for Wealth Management. “The simple act of carefully budgeting one’s expenses is already a giant step in the right direction to achieving financial success.”

But to make sure that the good times won’t result in a negative bank account, one has to be aware and mindful of how they budget their spending beyond the holiday season. 

Creating a spending plan based on your income and expenses helps you gain a clear and detailed view of your financial situation, empowering you to be prepared for any unexpected spending at all times, especially during a time as hectic as the holiday season. But amidst the chaos of the Christmas rush, where do you even start?

To help Filipinos navigate the potential financial challenges that Christmas planning brings, GCash introduces the 3Ps: three budgeting priorities that the everyday Filipino can keep in mind as soon as their year-end bonuses roll in:

For a smooth and worry-free payment experience, have the freedom to pay any time, anywhere through GCash’s Send Money and Bank Transfer, or settle your bills with over 400 billing partners through Pay Bills.
