One of the group buying websites that I frequent would be CashCashPinoy. Aside from offering services (e.g. spas, food, travel), they also offer discounted products in which you can either pick-up from their office or you can have it delivered to an address you specify.
I personally pick-up the items because I have heard horror stories on problems on delivery such as delays, missing items, or the item isn’t what as it was described in the deal. If you choose delivery, it would be hard to track it and if you have any problems with it, it is also hard to complain. So save yourself the trouble and pick-up the items yourself. That’s just a small sacrifice you need to do in exchange for peace of mind.
So how do you pick-up items from CashCashPinoy?
The first thing you should know is to check whether the item you purchased needs a reservation or not. If it needs a reservation, you need to call CashCashPinoy before hand else you can simply go to their office to claim the items.
8th Floor, Lepanto Building, Paseo de Roxas, Makati City, Philippines
Their building is located along Paseo de Roxas. Inside the building, you need to get sign-in the logsheet and you will be given a gate pass. You need to have CashCashPinoy sign this gate pass so that you can leave the building.
Ride the elevator to the 8th floor and once you exit the elevator, just turn right for “Pick-ups”. The other direction is for deliveries. Once you enter the room, just give your voucher to the person there and wait. In a few minutes, you will get your item and they will sign your gate pass. That’s it! You are done! See how easy it is compared to shipping?
If you have any questions, just let me know so that I can try to help you based on my experiences.
