The convenience of shopping for our groceries online is one great thing that came about with the new normal as an aftermath of the new coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. Here are six tips so you can really maximize your budget and time on your next digital shopping journey with MetroMart, an online grocery delivery service in the Philippines:
1. Make a list.
Just like a physical trip to the store, go into the shopping platform with a plan and stick to it. Try writing down all your meals for the coming week so you know all the ingredients you’ll need. If you come across something you like but can’t buy yet, don’t worry, just click the heart or like button and you can add it to your wishlist for later!
2. Save through sales.
Try to schedule your checkout time when there’s a sale. These are usually during payday periods like the 15th and end of every month.
Check out featured items on sale in MetroMart’s Payday Specials to score a big bargain. In this way, you not just save with your online shopping by foregoing the gasoline and transportation expenses but you also get more savings on your groceries and essentials.
3. Buy in bulk.
Take advantage of the wholesale and retail prices of supermarkets such as UltraMega, which is now also available on MetroMart. Re-stocking for your home pantry or for your sari-sari store is now 1, 2, easy and just a few taps on your phone especially with the wide selection of items with budget- and retailer- friendly prices from UltraMega Supermarket. You can also avail free delivery for orders with a minimum spend of ₱1,000 until August 2, 2022.
4. Pay and get more discounts.
All customers of MetroMart have a wide selection for modes of payment on their online shopping. These include Cash on Delivery, via e-wallet through GCash or via Debit/Credit cards with leading banks nationwide. Even more promos and discounts will be available through the different modes of payment availed by the customer.
5. Buy for your special someone.
Did you know that you can order your groceries with MetroMart and then get it delivered to another address even when you’re out of town or abroad? This would be especially helpful if you want to get fresh vegetables and food for your family, but they’re in a different location.
What’s really cool too is that MetroMart has expanded to new locations throughout the Philippines like in Davao, Bicol, Cabanatuan, Cagayan de Oro, Iloilo, Palawan and Pangasinan. The big convenience of online grocery shopping is definitely for every Filipino.
6. Try new things, love local.
Sometimes, you just never know what kind of food you may want to try or what you’ll suddenly need for your home. Never fear, just go straight into your MetroMart app and order right away.
Apart from the leading supermarkets, MetroMart has other specialty stores in different categories like hardware, toys, novelty items, pet care, food products, furniture and medicine. It’s a great way to check out and support new brands by awesome Filipino entrepreneurs, all in the comfort of your home and on your smartphone.
