Zap Crawl: Get Zapped this Christmas

It was an awesome ZAPtag weekend for wifey Marj and I last November 16, 2013. ZAP treated a handful of lifestyle writers and bloggers including Seats For Two to a rewarding afternoon at Bonifacio Global City (BGC).


Called the “ZAP Crawl BGC“, we toured a number of shops and restaurants offering ZAP 2%-15% cashback in their stores including Naci Comfort Food, Wink, Urban Ashram Yoga, and Slice. The afternoon was filled with treats featuring delicious food discoveries, beauty tips and healthy stretching exercises.


We met the ZAP team and host Inez Achacoso at Naci Comfort Food where we had our lunch together with other bloggers. We also got to talk with Naci co-owners Natasha Villaroman and Nadine Nocom.

This was followed by a visit to Wink Laser and Wax Studio where one member of the media volunteered to be treated to a free eyebrow wax. Owner Holly Chang highlighted that ZAPtag users get a regular 5% cashback on laser and waxing services excluding packages.

Up next was Urban Ashram Manila whee Studio manager Lexi Payumo gave a brief lecture on the benefits of yoga and shared some effective poses to perform while typing on computers.  Enrollees get 10%-20% cashback on yoga classes.

The last stop was a perfect way to end the afternoon with a sweet cupcake treat from Slice. With a 5% cashback at Slice, there’s one less reason to resist that yema cupcake!
