Watson’s Switch and Save: Shopping with Tessa Prieto Valdes

May 3, 2015
It was an ordinary shopping day for me at Watson’s.. or so I thought. Aside from the usual Buy One, Take One signages all over the store, Ms. Tessa Prieto-Valdes welcomed me and joined shoppers at the Watson’s Store in SM Aura last Saturday for Watson’s Switch and Save #CelebritySwitch!
Tess Prieto-Valdes literally and figuratively wore different hats that day at the Watson’s SM Premiere store. We first found her in the Pharmacy Section entertaining guests and answering their questions about multi-vitamins and supplements. She was so impressive! She suggested Watson’s Generics which are 80% cheaper compared to other leading brands. I should know. I previously bought Vitamin E supplement from Watson’s Generics for my sister and was surprised with how affordable the bottle of 100’s is! So much savings!

When we went back to the Watson’s store after our snack at Mary Grace, we found her at the Watson’s store entrance inviting guests to shop, switch and save. I had my photo taken with her and she graciously assisted me inside and shared with me about the Watson’s Promo and Php 300 cash rebate voucher for every Php1,500 purchase.
She’s way too awesome as Watson’s Sales Consultant! She’s always smiling, entertaining guests and can answer questions about the products and promo. I asked if I can still use my SM Advantage Card or BDO Rewards (and she said yes!). Who wouldn’t be excited to shop? She gave me a basket and I started to shop!
I love Watson’s Buy One, Take One Promo! I remember hoarding the Body and Hand Washes!
You know what they say, if you want to save on shopping, go for the Generic items. Well, Watson’s got the best ones in cute packaging and bottles too! 
Watson’s has everything you need – from toileties, personal care, makeup, supplements and even food! I remember having our daily trips at Watson’s Eastwood before the start of the shift to buy juices, chips and what-nots! 

I heard these lotion and body care products are amazingly good and sweet-smelling! 

Hair Care products that my sister worships for her hair maintenance.

Colorful wet ones (which are more affordable than branded wet tissues)
While enjoying my time picking stuff and shopping, I bumped into Ms Tessa entertaining guests, playing with kids and answering customers’ queries. 
I would have wanted to shop more but I still have supplies at home and I want to shop smartly. I must admit that the on-going promos are tempting. I saw Loreal, Maybelline and Nivea products on sale! I know I am set for a second trip at Watson’s this week!
I love this promo at Watson’s! I remember planning my bi-monthly trips at Watson’s so I can spend more and meet the purchase requirements to get freebies like pouches and bags. 

And I love that Watson’s accepts Sodexho GC’s and allows me to earn points in my BDO Rewards Card! 

My Watson’s Switch and Save Purchases
Watson Round Puffs (Buy One, Take One)
Sunplay (my fave sunblock!) Php 350
Nivea Sun Protect Spray 50% OFF
Watson’s Hand Wash (Buy One, Take One)

So much savings!!!

Thank you so much Watson’s for having me! Always awesome to be invited by brands and stores that you have been supporting for years. It is no surprise that even when in other Asian Countries, you would find me buying my stuff and needs at Watson’s. It is always good to be able to switch and save!

#TeamSuspects had fun shopping too!

Keep shopping at Watson’s and always be on the look-out on who’s manning the store. It could be one of Watson’s brand ambassadors who would assist you next – Iya or Patty? I heard Christian Bautista helped shoppers in SM Mall of Asia last month 🙂
