The Happy Plus Card is the fast food giant Jollibee’s first cashless payment card. Apart from Jollibee stores, the card could also be used to pay for foods ordered in its subsidiary companies: Chowking, Red Ribbon and Greenwich.
At first, I’m apprehensive at getting it because I had to pay PhP 100 to avail the card and purchase another PhP 100 worth of initial load. However, I decided to buy it because of the attractive ongoing promo of the company. By purchasing loads available in denominations of PhP 100 to PhP 500, a subscriber will earn points for the monthly raffle. Your points will give you a chance to win cash prizes worth PhP 100,000 every month through December 2013. Since I have purchased it just recently, I’m still crossing my fingers and hoping that I will win.
Aside from the raffle, I also like the fact that the card offers rewards for every peso I spent. For every PhP 50, my card earns 1 point equivalent to PhP 1. The accumulated points could be used to pay for the food. This is good for the subscriber because we get more value for our food. The company also benefits from this set-up because it ensures loyal and repeat customers.
The card comes with Free Discount Coupons that takes off PhP 50 for every PhP 250 food purchase in Jollibee, Chowking, Greenwich and Red Ribbon. When my friends and I eat out, I could use the discount coupon and get my meal free. With this, I feel that the PhP 100 I spent for the card is compensated already. I’m a very thrifty girl so I like the idea that I get something in return for the money I spent.
As a busy working girl, I value that the cashless payment makes for an easier and faster transaction at the counter. However, I think the services could still be improved. Sometimes, the system gets offline and I had to pay the old fashioned way. The company has also promised to make the card available in paying for Mang Inasal food purchases but it is yet to be available. That’s too bad because I like eating in Mang Inasal.
The card reloading facilities needed improving, too. Right now, subscribers needed to reload at the Jollibee stores over the counter. It would be more efficient if subscribers will also have an option to reload their cards online or through other payment facility. Nevertheless, I find the service good. I definitely would recommend more subscribers to get the card.
