Yes To Hassle-Free Prepaid Sim Loading

 

Call me lazy, but I like automation.

I enrolled most of our bills with my credit card for automatic monthly payments. The others that can’t be enrolled (such as the electricity bill), I pay via online banking of my credit card. That way, I only have one due date to remember. I love how seamless the process is. And I love that I get points for being efficient.

But it’s a whole lot different story with my prepaid sim. I usually go to a physical store to buy load. No automation. No points earned. Nothing.

So the typical me searched for an alternative and I discovered various options for me to have a hassle-free prepaid sim loading experience.

Below are the step by step guide on how I load my Globe prepaid sim via three different mobile apps and their corresponding pros and cons:

  1. Click Buy Load

Those steps might not mean automation but at least I won’t go to a physical store. And after reviewing what I just laid here, I believe I will stick with Lazada for now.
