I rarely go to duty free here in Manila after a trip. Well for one, they don’t have enough stocks. Whenever I go there, Duty Free Fiestamall is almost empty. Of course that’s an exaggeration, but you get what I mean?!?! Also, the stocks seem to be old. Come to think of it, the reason why I don’t go to Duty Free Fiestamall is I don’t have enough moolah to spare after a trip! LOL! Also, I make it a point to buy the things I need (okay, more of “want”) when I’m abroad. Yesterday was different though. I spent my Friday night at Duty Free Fiestamall because my dear friend, Tel, told me about their special promo! 🙂
They have a special promo called Peso Power. Exchange rate is $1 = PHP 40! 🙂 Definitely a great deal, especially when you’re buying a lot! 🙂 And so to make the most out of it, I got these… LOL! 🙂
Yeah, I spent mostly on cosmetics again! Imagine, Smashbox Foundation Primer is priced at $38.25 so that’s about PHP 1,530 only! I got that for PHP 2,150 at Beauty Bar, as seen in this post. Geesh! 🙁 I should have known! Oh, and MAC is now available at Duty Free Fiestamall! Girls were going gaga at the MAC counter!!! LOL! 😀
You can also get this free ESPRIT tote bag for every $200 spent on fragrances and cosmetics. 🙂
And speaking of bags, I’m sure most ladies rush to the Longchamp store at Duty Free to check on the Le Pliage tote. Bad news ladies! They have very limited stocks right now since this promo of Duty Free started last September 17. 🙁 They only have long handles in small size and the rest are short handles in navy blue, beige, pink, graphite and black.
For those of you who wants to grab this Peso Power deal of Duty Free Fiestamall, you still have until tomorrow, September 26, 2010. 🙂 Oh and as a tip, bring Philippine Pesos! They charge in USD when you use credit card, therefore exchange rate of the bank will be applied.
P.S. Tel, this is your fault! Per diem really gone! LOL! 😀 But thanks for letting me know, I was able to save a lot! 😀
