I recently tested using Ayala Land Inc.'s event token for me, a fancy-looking electronic gift card. The firs thing I had to do before rushing to any mall in Metro Manila to use it was find out how and where I could use it. The customer service numbers at the back of the card were helpful as I found out, based on those, that the card can be used at any Ayala Mall. A call to one of the phone numbers led me to talking to a mall concierge who politely answered all my inquiries. I found out that the Ayala EGC could be used for shopping products at any participating stores based inside any Ayala Mall. It can also be used for supermarket purchases, movie-viewing, and dining at restaurants. I asked further what participating establishments are going to honor the card and I was advised to just personally chat with the concierge at the mall where I intend to visit. After using it the first time for two 3D cinema tickets to the recently shown Maleficent at Greenbelt, I proceeded to use it days after at Max's restaurant in Trinoma Mall for lunch. In both instances, I was given a receipt and was made to sign a copy of it for the establishment to keep. For fear of neglecting the current amount that's charged in the card, I simply called a Bank of The Philippines (BPI) hotline (89-100) and confirmed the amount left in the EGC for my use. This is because Ayala Mall is a merchant of BPI for this customized payment tool. The bank customer service machine was able to inform me over the phone the remaining amount in my card after I relayed the card number (set of digits indicated on the card). TIP: SM Supermarket-Makati, although not part of an Ayala Mall, honors the Ayala EGC as I was told by the concierge in Glorietta Mall.
