PayMaya has been my best quarantine buddy, here's why

paymaya my best quarantine buddy
Dami kong pera haha
The entire Luzon has been on Enhanced Community Quarantine since mid-March and has been extended a couple of times already in an effort to stop or at least slow the spread of the conronavirus pandemic. This left most of us locked in our own houses and are only allowed to go outside to buy food, medicine, and other essentials. Being asked to stay at home for this long period of time has been very challenging for many of us for different reasons. Good thing there is internet, smartphones, and other gadgets that keep us entertained and busy while staying at home. Not only that, there are mobile applications and internet-based services that are always available to help us manage our finances and financial responsibilities while at home. One of those is PayMaya, which to me has been one of my best quarantine buddies.

I find PayMaya to be so useful in this current type of situation. It enables me to move around my finances, pay my bills, buy prepaid loads, make some donations to various institutions to help fight COVID-19 outbreak, as well as send money to my loved ones. Not only this provides me tremendous convenience it also helps me adhere to the stay at home and social distancing orders as I can do all of these without leaving the comfort of my home here in Antipolo.

I don't wanna contract the virus or get caught by the local authority for violating the quarantine policy simply because I just went outside to buy prepaid load from my suking tindahan. And I'm sure you do the same, so in this post I will be sharing with you why PayMaya has been my best  quarantine buddy. And perhaps, if you don't have one yet, this may also help you in a lot of ways.

Add funds

Let's start first with the most important part of using PayMaya - adding funds. After all we won't be able to maximize its full potential if we don't add funds to it, correct? The good thing here is that there are a lot of ways to get our PayMaya account funded. One of most convenient ways is through online and mobile banking via InstaPay and PESONet. To date, a number of local banks, including major ones are supported (you can check the list here) such as BPI, Unionbank, Metrobank, RCBC, PNB to name a few.

Send/transfer money

Of course if I can add funds to my PayMaya account, I can also send money. Whether it's a special someone, loved one, or even a friend from afar who needs my help in sending them money because they can't go outside due to quarantine, PayMaya is here to help me. Not only I can send to another PayMaya account, but also a GCash user. But wait there's more! Through the Bank Transfer feature, I can also forward my money to any participating banks or to my personal bank. That's how I move my finances around (kala mo naman karahiman LOL), but yes it is pretty useful especially in these times of crisis. No need for me to line-up at the branch, LBC, or Palawan Express, just a few taps on my phone will do the job for me.

Buy prepaid load

Perhaps one of my most used features of PayMaya, buying prepaid load for my mobile phone and data needs. Apart from the load arriving almost real-time, I also get to enjoy discounts in doing so as low as Php 1.00 and as much as Php 113 per laod. I use Smart prepaid on my smartphone, but prepaid loads for TNT, SUN, Globe, TM are also available with discounts.

Now due to my current Work From Home (WFH) set-up and having no DSL/Fiber connection yet at home, I am currently using PLDT Home Prepaid WiFi for my internet connectivity needs. This prepaid WiFi has its own data bundle called FamLoad, thankfully all of those are available on PayMaya and with discounts as well. Needless to say, I'm happy about that. So if you are one of those employees who were given the opportunity to work from home and are using PLDT Home Prepaid WiFi just like me, having a PayMaya account in your mobile phone is going to be a lot of help.

Pay bills

We know that a lot of companies have already announced their own ways of helping us subscribers during the time of COVID-19 crisis such as by extending due dates for months. This kind of help from these companies is greatly appreciated, not only that we can use the money for our daily needs while in quarantine, many of us also won't need to rush outside just to pay our bills on time and avoid penalties. However, if you can still pay the bills right now and don't want all of them to pile up after the quarantine is over, PayMaya can be useful as well for this purpose. Inside the app, you can pay your those too from insurance, water, electricity, credit cards, down to internet bills.

Additionally, if you pay an eligible bill until end of May 2020, you can receive cashbacks!

Buy gaming pins

Okay let's talk about gaming. If there were one group of people who are most happy about this ongoing quarantine, this would be the gamers. Because they now have a lot of time to catch up on the games that they are playing whether its on mobile platforms or gaming consoles. Through PayMaya, they can purchase gaming pins such as for Mobile Legends, Ragnarok, Steam and many others. I don't play game that much, but if I did, this would be of great help to me.

Shop online or pay Netflix

And then last but not least, online shopping. With so many physical stores currently closed due to the community quarantine, many of these shops and big brands are resorting to selling their merchandise and goods online such as through Shopee, Lazada or through their own online channels. And PayMaya being as good as a regular credit card, this would come in handy.

I have been using PayMaya for quite a while now and so far I have never encountered any problems with it yet. All of my transactions are being processed accordingly and in a timely manner including paying my Netflix subscription (did you know you can now subscribe to Netflix for as low as Php149 a month? Learn more here). Apart from PayMaya, Netflix is also the other best quarantine buddy I have. Pero dahil sa tagal ng quarantine, parang napanood ko na ata lahat ng dapat mapanood dito, haha (any recommendations?).

With all that being said, I personally recommend PayMaya. You can check their website to learn more about PayMaya's current services and deals/promos here. PayMaya is free to download from the App Store and Google Play. Even non-Smart users can also register which is cool.
