Originally focused on adding extra value to dining experiences, the program has grown to include discounts for retail and travel. For this year, 80 new partners have been added to the Epic Experiences roster, giving cardholders a wider array of selections for great food, fashion, and amazing getaways. The program is currently available in establishments in the Greater Manila Area, Bicol, Boracay, Cebu, Davao, Laguna, Palawan, and Tagaytay.
During the launch at the Enderun College Atrium on 16 March, Stuart Tomlinson, VISA Country Manager for the Philippines, stated “Our vision is to give our cardholders an opportunity to curate their unforgettable life moments through Epic Experiences.” Tomlinson further added that the extensive list of partners will enable members to enjoy exclusive privileges and perks.
The launch also featured booths from selected partners as a sort of preview as to what cardholders can enjoy under this year’s Epic Experiences with regard to shopping, dining, and travel. Stores Specialists Inc (SSI) showed off some of the latest items from Cortefiel, Springfield, and Women’s Secret. American brasserie and sweetshop Sugar Factory tempted the crowd with its signature sweets and drinks. Bicol’s Misibis Bay also came to the fore and raffled off a relaxing trip for two to the resort. It was certainly an event that promised another great year for Visa’s loyal clientele.
