Mommy Mundo and Sun Life Financial’s PA TXT Card

Sponsored Post

When I was a new mom, I consulted a lawyer friend if I should make a will indicating who I want to take care of my children should I die before they are well-abled adults, a la Raising Helen. Yes, you can say I was praning or over-acting but you can never be too cautious and prepared when you are a mom. And this is why I appreciate the partnership of Mommy Mundo and Sun Life Financial in providing the members of the biggest mommy community in the country, a Personal Accident Insurance.

So, why is it called PA TXT Card?

Because moms need convenience and efficiency, this personal accident insurance can be activated by just inputting a few taps on your mobile phone. Similar to the load cards of our youth (am I dating myself?!), there’s a scratch box that will reveal your certificate number, your proof of registration.

No paper work. No lines. No hidden agenda.

You read that right: this provides Php. 50,000 for one year.

I want one! How much is it to avail?

For just Php. 500, you get:

  • a Mommy Mundo Passport;
  • a Mom 24/7 Planner;
  • a Mommy Mundo Journey Box – a curated set of items depending on what stage of motherhood you’re in;
  • discounts, privileges, event invitations and;
  • a Personal Accident Insurance from Sun Life Financial!
What’s inside the Journey Box: lots of mom and baby approved products!

 

I think this is the only accident insurance that has this much perks!

Moms between the ages of 18 to 64 and do not belong to occupations under Exclusions Provision (which can be found in the packet) are eligible to apply. A maximum coverage of Php. 100,000 can be availed by enrolling two cards. This insurance policy provides protection for one whole year upon registration.

This is available during Mommy Mundo events such as the upcoming Expo Mom North happening on July 15 – 16 at Trinoma.

In case you still have a valid Mommy Mundo Passport, just present it during the event and you automatically get a PA TXT Card.

Present during the launch and contract signing are: Karen Casas (Chief Operations Officer Sun Life Philippines); Alex Narciso (President & Chief Agency Distribution Officer, Sun Life – Philippines); Riza Mantaring (Country Head & CEO Sun Life of Canada Philippines Inc.); Janice Villanueva (CEO & Founder Mommy Mundo); Jing Lejano (Content Head Mommy Mundo); Regine Chua (Marketing Specialist Mommy Mundo).

Affordable.

Convenient.

Made for moms.

Though, I don’t intend to use this insurance policy, it is good to have since there are little kids dependent on me. If ever, God forbid, something untoward happened to me, this can help my family make the first step financially. In a society where “insurance” connotes a negative impression, the Mommy Mundo and Sun Life Financial’s PA TXT Card may be a mom’s first step towards a brighter future.

PayMaya for Parents

Press Release

Millennials are known to do things differently, including parenting. With a number of them now experiencing parenthood, the generation of digital natives is maximizing technology to raise their children the right way, and to manage their household efficiently.

PayMaya, the country’s pioneer and leader in digital financial services and mobile money, underscores how basic household transactions can be made hassle-free and more secure through an e-wallet. Designed for the underserved to have a safe and accessible means to pay online, PayMaya extends its services to millennial parents in search for a better way to pay bills, send and receive money, and more.

“As a generation that grew up surrounded by technology, millennials expect the same level of convenience in paying bills, sending money, and shopping online. PayMaya evolves with its market by empowering millennial parents with the financial services they need, in the most secure, user-friendly, and convenient way possible,” said PayMaya Philippines COO Paolo Azzola.

The Modern Household’s Partner for Payments

With PayMaya, consumers can pay utility bills in-app, anytime and anywhere. They can give their kids allowance or emergency money without leaving the office or while on-the-go. Parents can also pay the family driver or give the household help a grocery budget with just a few taps on their smartphone.

To help account holders keep track of their expenses, as well as the expenses of PayMaya cards linked to their account, a real-time SMS notification is sent for every transaction. A transaction record is also automatically updated in the app.

For parents who are also ‘digipreneurs’, PayMaya can be used to pay for webhosting and sponsored posts on social media. They can also rely on PayMaya to pay suppliers and receive payments from customers. For freelancers who receive fees from clients overseas, PayMaya can be linked to a global payment platform like PayPal to withdraw their earnings. Money transferred to their PayMaya wallet can be immediately used to transact online, pay bills, or withdrawn as cash in any Bancnet ATM.

PayMaya can be used to pay anywhere Visa or Mastercard is accepted, including seat sales, paid mobile apps, and on-demand services such as Uber, Netflix, and Spotify. Users can also save on mobile and data load in all networks with all bundles and offers at 5% off in the PayMaya app.

“We all know that parenting is not an easy feat. At PayMaya, we want to help parents manage their finances in a more efficient way through digital solutions. We work hard to lighten the load of our customers so they can have more time, energy, and resources for their loved ones and for their personal fulfillment,” said Sharon Kayanan, Marketing and Brand Head at PayMaya Philippines.

PayMaya is my reliable partner in paying bills. It saves me from the stress of commuting and waiting in line just to settle my utility and phone bills. Without a doubt, PayMaya helps me be more productive as a mom and blogger,” shared Ava Te-Zabat, millennial parent and founder of the blog ‘Artsy Fartsy Ava’.

Wiji Lacsamana, a tattoo artist, illustrator, natural perfumer, and millennial mom also shared, “Freelancing is more efficient now with PayMaya. It allows me to pay and get paid instantly without the need to carry cash, which I find inconvenient and unsafe. After receiving my payment from clients, I can immediately use PayMaya to promote my business through social media ads. No need to leave my studio just to withdraw money or make payments.”

3 Reasons Why You Need A #TeamMom

Being a mom not only gained me my two adorable children but also mommy friends. Here are 3 reasons why you need a #TeamMom:

  • With a #TeamMom, you have a sounding board to vent without the fear of being judged. Your thoughts, no matter how silly, are accepted.
  • Your #TeamMom can serve as realistic inspirations because you know how hard they’ve worked to achieve their goals.
  • Realistically, some friendships end because they lose common ground. That won’t happen to a #TeamMom because you will be a mom forever! No matter what stage of parenting you are in, there will always be similarities to relate to and pieces of advice to keep. Your #TeamMom is your friends for life!

And one particular group I’m happy to call my #TeamMom is with my Pilates-mates: Michelle, Jackie and Cai. Because of them, I have a new-found passion in keeping fit and healthy, and days seem a little lighter through our online conversations. We’re featured as one of Mommy Mundo’s #TeamMom!
