I was a little disturbed a few years ago. I mean, my life was. So if I ended up selling my soul to someone or something, right now I wish it was Globe. Because they’re so good to me right now! 🙂
This story is my favorite story to tell: I’ve been with Globe for many years now. To be exact, 11 years. Can you imagine that? 11 years. That’s longer than all of my romantic relationships combined. I got my first phone right after I graduated elementary–it was 5110–and I can still memorize my first number then (09177891505). I switched to Touch Mobile 2003-2004 and then went back to Globe after that. I went through around 4 different numbers because I was careless sometimes (hello PUK moments and jeepney cellphone thieves).
When Globe Tattoo was released, I got a plugin and used Supersurf often. I knew almost all the promos, all the keywords to the promos, when they’re expiring, which phones to match plans, etc. I swear, I can double the front desk girl at the Globe center anytime and I’d do an awesome job. What can I do? I was a super fan. An evangelist. And no, they didn’t pay me anything. I was just happy with the service I’m getting and I didn’t want to part ways.
Don’t get me wrong. It’s not as if I didn’t tried the other networks, or I don’t own a phone belonging to a different network. It’s just that I don’t have this kind of loyalty with the other networks…and I’m not that happy with their services either.
Now that I’m in the events/PR/media circle, I’ve attended many Globe events and had good experiences with all of them. But you know what, this evening, I just had the best Globe experience ever. The kicker: this experience is forever. (Finally, those 11 years of loyalty paid off!)
Just a few hours ago, Globe gave away around 50 special sims to Davaoenyos/Davaoenyas who are considered as influencers in the social circles that they belong to. There were fashion icons, models, socialites, media people, student leaders, entrepreneurs, bloggers, athletes, et cetera. What’s so special about these sims? Well, if you’re around the Davao area, you get FREE UNLIMITED TEXTS TO GLOBE AND TM FOREVER. That’s right, FOREVER. The recipient has to be Davao-based too, by the way. Best to give to family members, relatives, barkadas and lovers! (DID I JUST SAY LOVERS?! Well, you know what I mean. *wink) These sims are testimonials of how much Globe loves us, and our beautiful city. They even encouraged us to name the sim ourselves and not carry the Globe tag with it. After all, it was OUR sim, just powered by Globe. We had yummy cocktails, played a few games, and went crazy on the photobooth! What a fun night! (methinksihadtoomuchwine.)
So yeah, for all those years and ^ more^ , thank you Globe! You never fail to amaze me all the time. Sometimes I wish I can marry you.
PS Globe is taking me and 2 of my friends to the Avengers 3D Screening this Friday! How cool is that?!
PPS I have 2 active Globe sims now. Never felt better.
