When I am not going through social media, I’m most likely on my phone with a headset, streaming my favorite videos. YouTube, NBA, and even iWant videos keep me entertained and awake for the day. However, when I don’t have WiFi, I end up paying more than what I should. Besides the subscriptions, the videos I watch eat up a lot of data making my wallet feel lighter—way lighter.
But lately we discovered something from Smart, the GigaSurf 99 wherein for 7 days you can consume 2GB of data to different apps and websites plus, it comes with 1GB of data allowance exclusively for videos for each day.
For a whole week I made the most of this promo by watching my fave vids and here is my personal experience:
Day 1, Sunday
Starting on a rest day, catching up on The Flash series on iflix was a good decision. I am still in season 3 down to episode 12 and I got to watch until episode 20 with my 1GB video mobile data. And then I went to mass.
Day 2, Monday
Work, work, work. My commute going to the office takes a lot of time and I mean around 2 hours. I pre-downloaded some classic movies on iflix and grabbed my wireless headphones on. Let’s go!
By the way, I got a lot of data left from my 1GB video allowance and I used it to watch YugaTech comparison videos on YouTube. You can go ahead and check them out.
Aside from being a tech enthusiast, I also have other hobbies like cooking and painting so I watch videos on YouTube to help me improve my skills. It’s a long term process so it’s a good thing I have a whole week of data.
Day 3, Tuesday
I knew I needed to catch up on some of Halik episodes on iWant. Things are getting more interesting and intense as I see more memes online. “Hoy Ace umayos ka!”
It’s been a long day, so to unwind before I hit the sack, I played some chill music on YouTube, which is a great alternative if Spotify isn’t working for you.
Day 4, Wednesday
Just browsing through Facebook when I saw a link to Peter McKinnon’s YouTube channel. The day went on watching more of his vids at the same time working. At the end of the day, I learned a lot of photography tips and style from the pro.
Day 5, Thursday
I was supposed to go to the mall for some Christmas shopping, but then I got lazy and turned to online shopping instead to make the most of my mobile data. Then I turned to NBA. Which team are you?
Day 6, Friday
TGIF but I’m staying home and continue binge watching The Flash on iflix. I’m already in season 4!
Update, binge-watching isn’t working for me so I checked out some travel videos so I can figure out and plan my next out of town trip.
Day 7, Saturday
I was at a coffee shop working while babysitting my 13-year old cousin. I kept her occupied by giving my phone and she just watched makeup tutorials on YouTube. Oh well, my 1GB video data allowance for the day got it covered.
That’s it, I can’t believe I spent only PHP 99 for my whole week of mobile data. And if you noticed, I used it not just for entertainment, but a way for me to fuel my hobbies, interests, and passion for traveling. Who said watching videos isn’t productive?!
We think the GigaSurf 99 is a great deal for everyone who loves to watch videos on-the-go. The best part of it is you can maximize your up to 1 hour or 1GB of daily video viewing with apps like YouTube, iflix, iWant, NBA, and Cignal TV while you still have consumable 2GB of mobile data for your non-video streaming apps and sites.
