Globe Giveth, Globe Taketh Away


A couple of weeks ago, a lot of Globe Telecom prepaid subscribers collectively heaved a sigh of relief when a lot of them received a notice from Globe saying that they are receiving additional prepaid credits (locally known as "load") because of a "Rewards Promo". Of course, monthly subscribers took this news with a grain of salt -- and some degree of envy. Here's the reaction from a local cellphone enthusiast forum.

But a few days ago, the people who received the free prepaid credits received another notice from Globe saying that there has been a system error and that the amount credited to them will be revoked! So here's what the same people are saying now.

Hmmm... what a way to usher in their new logo huh?

That happened to my girlfriend. It was really frustrating to have received free load only to be taken away several days later, but on the good side, I inquired about a loyalty program for post-paid subscribers, and they do have one. Starting next month, I'll be receiving a monthly rebate of approximately P1K :)Of course, this is plan and usage dependent... :D
