My Most Rewarding Experience With Sodexo Gift Certificates
As a mother, I would do everything for my kids, even if it means I have to go out of my comfort zone and do out-of-the-box things. I just hope when they get older, they would remember how I did my best to be more creative, resourceful, and hardworking so I could give them a better life. I have been joining contests for quite some time now. It's my way of getting things that I could not buy for my kids at the moment because I don't earn much from my writing job. I'm still waiting for the LET results to come out. In God's grace, after I passed the exam I would be able to land a job and earn decently for my kids. For now, I enjoy being a full-time mom, part-time home based writer, and kontesera.
Last November 2016, I joined a Halloween-themed contest at Nestle Chuckie Facebook page. It's a Mommy & Child contest. I have a lot of competitors and everyone was very creative. I noticed that some even funded their contest to get picked, I, on the other hand, tried not to spend a single peso whenever I join a contest. I recycle the materials I have at home such as leftover materials from my kids' school project. For Nestle Chuckie's Halloween contest, I searched for old clothes that would make us look like a scarecrow. I found hats that my kids wore last July for Nutrition Month. I cut out letters and pasted it on a yellow cartolina. I went to our backyard to search for the perfect spot to hang our banner. Tadaaa! Here's a pic of me and my son dressed as a scarecrow, sipping a pack of Nestle Chuckie at the entrance of our very own "Chuckie Ville". Aaaahhhhwoooo! How do we look?
My creativity and resourcefulness were generously rewarded by Nestle Chuckie. I was one of the winners and they rewarded us with 2,500 pesos worth of Sodexo Gift Certificates each. I was so thankful dahil may pang-shopping na kami ng kids ko for Christmas! We went to SM City Lucena that December at gaya ng dati pamasahe lang ang dala namin. I knew it would not be a problem because numerous stores/outlets accept Sodexo Premium Pass Gift Certificates even our favorite restaurants like Mang Inasal and Jollibee. Check out the full list of merchants that accept Sodexo gift certificates here. Upon arriving at SM City Lucena, we went straight to Mang Inasal to order our favorite chicken inasal and sisig. I paid 500 pesos worth of Sodexo gift certificates for our sumptuous lunch. After eating a hearty meal at our most favorite restaurant, we started shopping for new toys at Toy Kingdom and since they also accept Sodexo GC's, my kids were able to enjoy shopping. My son got a chessboard and my daughter a huge coloring puzzle and Play-Doh. Before we head home, we bought groceries at SM Supermarket and grabbed snacks at Jollibee and I paid Sodexo GC's for that too. You should have seen the look on my kids' faces. They were very happy, I could see it in their eyes. This is the reward of motherhood. It was the most rewarding experience I had with Sodexo Gift Certificates because of my son and I, we both worked hard to earn the gift certificates. Kaya sobrang proud din ako sa anak ko sa acting nya dito. Lahat ng hirap, pagod at puyat ko came rushing out when I saw my kids having a grand time. I had a great time too because the gift certificates were truly rewarding to spend and very convenient to use too.
