BDO and SM Introduce Kabayan Tuesday for Overseas Filipino Families, Featuring a Heartwarming Surprise from Piolo Pascual

Enjoy Up to 10% Off at Your Favorite Stores Every First Tuesday of the Month

Overseas Filipinos (OFs) exhibit unwavering dedication as they work tirelessly for their loved ones, enduring long periods of separation to support not just their families but also their homeland.

In a gesture of appreciation, BDO and SM have launched Kabayan Tuesday, an exclusive promotion designed to enhance the shopping experiences of OF families. This offer is available every first Tuesday of 2024.

OF families simply need to present their Kabayan ATM card, passbook, or BDO remittance payment slip to enjoy discounts of up to 10% at all SM Store branches nationwide, including SM Appliance, Watsons, Miniso, Toy Kingdom, Surplus, Baby Company, Sports Central, ACE Hardware, SM Cinema, SM Game Park, SM Bowling, and SM Skating.

The launch of this special promotion was commemorated with a lively event, the "Kabayan Tuesday Mall Show with Piolo," held on June 4 at the newly opened SM City Caloocan.

A celebration beftting OFs contributions

BDO and SM have a shared vision of enriching the daily lives of Filipino families by making experiences more meaningful, convenient, and rewarding.

Kabayan Tuesday serves as BDO's expression of gratitude towards OF families, assuring them of a steadfast partnership with BDO.

Through Kabayan Tuesday, SM shines a light on OF families, acknowledging their significant presence in the community and expressing gratitude for including SM in their family bonding moments. 

The highlight of the event was a heartwarming surprise by BDO ambassador Piolo Pascual, who not only graced the launch and greeted attendees but also treated an OF family to an unforgettable experience.

A Memorable Surprise: Music and Shopping Spree

During the event, Piolo delighted the crowd as he approached the son and sister of Maritess Magtabog, a Filipino worker based in Japan.

After serenading them with a few songs, Piolo invited the Magtabog family on a shopping spree at the SM Store and other participating stores, recognizing their loyalty as BDO Kabayan Savings account holders over the years.

The Magtabog family, supported by their mother's 22 years of hard work abroad, seized the opportunity to purchase their own home through BDO in Caloocan.

Reflecting on the experience, Piolo shared, "Spending time with the Magtabog family was truly refreshing and enjoyable. Having been an OF myself, I understand the sacrifices our kabayans make year-round, and it was an honor to connect with them. I encourage more OFs to take advantage of making their loved ones' shopping experiences more rewarding and to remember that BDO and SM are here as their partners."

Kabayan Tuesday, a collaborative effort between BDO and SM, offers special discounts of up to 10% at all SM Store branches, SM Appliance, Viatace Toy Kingdom, Surplus, Baby Company, Sports Central, ACE Hardware, SM Cinema, Game Park, SM Bowling, and Skating.
