Watson’s Switch & Save with New Ambassadors – Iya & Mikael

September 21, 2013

I was able to save Php19,185 from Watson’s Switch and Save launch last week!



Well, that was just from the Switch and Save app
game that I played. But imagine if I will be able to save that much
money in a month, I can actually use it to fund my planned trip to
India, and probably buy other fancy, shiny things – like a new car.. why not?

don’t need alot of convincing. I love Watson’s and it is a go-to place
for me if I need anything – from toiletries, beauty products, medicines
and even snacks. I personally love the buy-one-take-one Watson’s items
such as shampoo, hand wash and body wash (I looove body washes!).

I always visit Watson’s whenever I go to malls (and how convenient it is that our office building has a Watson’s store behind it)! Sometimes I just go there to check what new offers they have – buy-one-take-one items, or the freebie gift for buying this certain amount of items. Yes, I love bargains!

Even celebrities and local personalities love Watson’s.

It was a red and white event that afternoon in Aracama Restaurant, Fort Bonifacio. I was planning to wear a white and red ensembles, and I am glad I didn’t as people might mistaken me as brand ambassador. I kid. 🙂

First in the list, is celebrity couple – Divine Lee and Victor Basa. We have seen their faces all over the Watson’s stores. Victor was unable to go to the event though because of hectic schedule.


Tessa Prieto-Valdes and one of my favorite bloggers, Patty Laurel (too bad, I was not able to get a picture with her!).  In here, Tessa keeps on teasing Patty as the newly wed! They shared that their trips to Watson’s has increased because of the savings they get from the products. Tessa stressed how she loves the Watson’s medicines which are affordable.

Joining the Ambassadors Line-up are Mikael Daez and Iya Villlana

Iya shares that she switched to Watson’s because it is the place that she goes to to get her needs. She said that the place even reminds her of US-based stores with the nice lightings and beautiful rows of items (and nice smelling products!). This is sooo true!

Mikael here shares how essential it is to save especially for the items like breath strips, mouthwash and razors. I am actually surprise how amazing Mikael looks in person – I love the clean shaven look – check!

Even ordinary people have made a switch! I know how most of us get a little too vain but the good news is we can still get our monthly supplies of beauty products and maintenance and still save.

  Here are some awesome Watson’s products:

Oh yeah, Watson’s medicines! The product line is expanding!

Love, love body washes!
From razors, hair iron, toothbrush and what-nots. 
Well, if you are wondering about the quality of the products, Watson’s partnered with United Laboratories Inc, to offer top-quality vitamins and medicines at affordable price. I am sure you have seen the Watson’s Health Packs and Watson’s Compliance Packs bundles for diabetes, hypertension cholesterol and antibiotics which gives 80% savings than leading brands. 


 Here is the happy Watson’s Switch and Save Family!

Btw, the top 6 scorers in the Switch and Save App Game I mentioned in my intro got themselves a new iPod Shuffle! How cool is that? Well, I didn’t meet the list.. but I think I can save more with Watson’s (I’ll do my weekend shopping later), I can buy my own gadget now 😉

It was the start of a fun day for me (oh yeah, I took my leave to attend events that day!) – well, I needed it. I needed time away from work. It was nice to spend the day with blogger friends too.

Here are some pics:
