Here are a few ways you can celebrate Valentine’s Day with your special someone without hurting your budget!

 #1  Order in and chill

If you’re on a tight budget, skip the restaurants. Aside from it being expensive, you would most probably be around so many couples as well.

A good alternative is to have a movie night in and have food delivered directly to your doorstep. Order online on any site that accepts Visa or Mastercard and use your physical or virtual Maya card to pay to enjoy a one-time 20% cashback!

Minimum purchase amount of P500. Promo runs until February 15, 2019.

 #2  Plan a game night
