Send first money transfer and receive a $50 Amazon.com Gift Card
“May is a big gifting month for Filipinos because of Mother’s Day and the start of back to school season,” said Julian King, Xoom’s Senior Vice President, Marketing and Corporate Development. “We are excited to offer customers this incentive of a $50 Amazon.com Gift Card, and for people to discover how convenient, safe and fast it is to send money home with Xoom.com.”
Filipino customers can visit www.xoom.com/fifty, click the designated link, and then send their money transfer to the Philippines. Xoom will email the customer a $50 Amazon.com Gift Card claim code, usually within one hour after the transaction is complete. This offer is valid for new Xoom customers who send their first money transfer from May 1-31, 2013. The $50 Amazon.com Gift Card does not expire and can be used towards millions of items at www.amazon.com (terms and conditions apply; Amazon is not a sponsor of this promotion).
Mother's Day in the Philippines this year is May 12, and a Filipino mother is called “ilaw ng tahanan” (the "light of the household"), with all activities revolving around her on her special day. June 10 is the official start of the new school year in the Philippines with millions of students heading back to their classrooms. “Sending money on Xoom.com is a great way to celebrate mom for Mother’s Day, and to provide school supplies and other amenities to family members heading back to school,” added King.
