First Visa Gourmet Perks
Winner Spotted at Italianni’s
Cress Caluag wasn’t really the type who loved
surprises, but last Friday was an exception. After
all, it’s not every day that she and her officemates
get to enjoy an excellent Italian meal, and have
someone else foot the bill!
A delicious surprise was how Caluag, branch manager
and 4th assistant vice president of Banco Filipino,
Benavidez branch, described the experience when she
became the first ever Mystery Shopper at Italianni’s
in Greenbelt2 recently as part of the Visa promo
“Gourmet Perks”. A Visa Gold cardholder, Caluag said
she had just handed her card to the waiter when Jim
Dixon, Visa country manager, came up “from out of
nowhere” and offered to pay for the meal. Donalyn
Sagurit, the Italiani’s attending waitress was as
happy to receive a generous tip of Php3,000.
“I actually thought it was just a hoax or something. A
few minutes later, my three officemates and I still
could not get over our amusement. It was a really
memorable night for us,” says Caluag, laughing.
To avail of the promo, simply dine in any of the 50
Gourmet Perks merchant partners in Greenbelt,
