3 tips for staying connected during COVID-19

Quarantine measures are slowly easing up throughout the country. However, we still need to practice social distancing, since these are the most effective ways of curbing the spread of COVID-19. Given our current circumstances, there’s still a ton of ways we can stay in touch with our family and friends. Simply use technology and buy load or data to get the much-needed social interaction and support we need to get during these challenging times!

With GCash, you can stay connected with your loved ones — and get rewarded with free vouchers while you’re at it! Simply open your GCash App, tap the Buy Load icon, and choose the GoEXTRA90 load promo that’s valid for 7 days. That already comes with 10GB worth of data, unlimited calls and texts.

Don’t worry! We’ll teach you how to use those GCash vouchers, but first, let’s go through these three ways to maximize your GoEXTRA90 to spend time with the ones you love most!

Check up on them with a phone call

While text messages are easily accessible, phoning your family and friends, especially the older ones that aren’t as tech-savvy, is an intimate way to catch up with them and check up on their well-being as they continue adapting to the new normal.

Invite them to video calls

Take your catch-ups to the next level and invite people to a video call with you—they aren’t just for work! Ever since the quarantine period began, people have been using all types of video call platforms, such as Skype, Zoom and Google Meet, to not only see how their loved ones are doing, but also as a platform for the activities they used to do before, like game nights and friendly inuman sessions.

Play mobile multiplayer games with them

Another fun way to get together with your loved ones is to invite them to play mobile games! Mobile Legends, Call of Duty and other similar games are all the rage right now, so why not have someone you know on your side to help defeat your online rivals and have even more fun?
