Meralco's Smartphone App Helps Lower Electric Bills

MERALCO, the Philippines largest distributor of electrical power recently introduced its Smartphone app that can actually help users save on their electricity bills.

The Smartphone application is called (MOVE), short for MeralcO Virtual Engine. It is a 6-in-1 app suite that lets users experience Meralco's services and more. Included in the app is an updated appliance calculator to measure your electricity consumption, location help for finding the nearest Meralco Business Centers and Bayad Centers, access to your latest electricity bills, power maintenance schedules, and energy efficiency tips.

I downloaded the app from Google Play Store since my smartphone runs on an android platform. Note: the app is also available at the App Store for IOS (Iphone/ Ipad) and Blackberry App World.

Type the word "Meralco" at the search button and you will be given five results. Just download the MeralcO Virtual Engine-Phone application because the other apps listed are already included when installed.

So how can this app help users save electricity? Let's see what it can do.

The Meralco Appliance Calculator can compute the electricity cost per hour, cost per day and cost per week of an appliance. Just input the needed information like the wattage, type of appliance etc.  This could be very useful on managing monthly electricity budget.

The Meralco Office Directory shows the nearest Meralco office. I tried looking for a Meralco Business Center at Marikina while on the go. Click on the area and it will show the complete address and telephone number. Isn't that convenient?

Avoid late payments and fines by paying the electricity bill on time. Meralco bills can be paid in any Bayad Center. If you want to know the nearest bayad center in your location, there's an app for that. Search the Bayad Center Directory app.

Check your Meralco bill on the go. Go online and use the Meralco E-Bill app.

Be prepared if there will be a power interruption in your area. The Power Maintenance Schedule shares Meralco's calendar with the date, time and area of service.

Adults and kids will love the Bright Ideas app. It is a virtual 3d house wherein one can go inside a room and point at things to discover tips on how to save on electricity. For example, I tried clicking the laptop and the following text popped out "Study and use your computer's power saving features to cut energy usage to less than half." It's really fun and very informative at the same time.

With more and more people using smartphones, this Meralco app - (MOVE) or MeralcO Virtual Engine will definitely benefit a lot. Indeed, Meralco is one step ahead on giving its consumers the best service and customer care experience.

Watsons Shares Value Added Offers To Get More Out Of Life

Having a productive, happier life may sometimes need some spending. Health supplements, vitamins and prescription drugs are some of the examples that we need to improve our health and wellness.  


In the Philippines, it's sad to hear that an average Filipino family spends only 2% of their household monthly income for health care. For example, a typical middle class family earning 30K a month can only shell out 600 pesos, which is very small to buy quality medicine for the whole family.  How about the less fortunate? How about the people who are suffering from chronic conditions that require them long-term drug therapy and maintenance? Due to tight budget, more and more of them don’t follow the prescribed prescriptions. No one among us wants to be in this situation.


In line with this problem, Watsons wants its customers to have a better position on taking control of their expenses  by giving them “value added offers” to stretch their peso to the best value their money can buy

Here are "5 value offers” from Watsons that may help you get more out of life.

Value offer # 1 

It is a good thing that we are now exposed to generics alternatives which offer good quality products at a fraction of the price. Watsons brings them to us through their "Buy Generics and Save" counters which offers the best quality generic medicines that are up to 80% in savings, all made by trusted pharmaceutical companies like Unilab, Ritemed, Sandoz, UHP, Paharex and others.

Value offer # 2 

SM Advantage card holders have the privilege of getting discounts to as much as 30% on value packs. They can also get their medicine for free by using their points to buy.

Value offer # 3

Watsons offers more choices. It’s good to know we have more choices when it comes to branded and generic medicines.

Value offer # 4

They have well trained pharmacists and wellness counselors. Watsons have very competitive pharmacists who are capable of giving the suggested generic equivalent of branded items.

Value offer # 5

It’s more fun at Watsons. Aside from the huge discount and knowledgeable staffs, they also give free unique gifts every month. What more can you ask for?
