Have you tried out Uniqlo's latest Facebook app U Shop, U Win yet?
Well, you should.
Aside from being easy peasy, you can also win an iPhone 5, a DSLR camera, a phone tablet, or a summer getaway for 2.
And, with every game that you play, you can even get 500-peso gift certificates to use while shopping at Uniqlo! Woot!
Ready to find out more about U Shop, U Win? Here we go...
U Shop, U Win is basically a Facebook game application that will let you use your virtual shopping points to purchase items at the virtual Uniqlo store, which - bee tee dub - looks uncannily like its actual store at SM Mall of Asia.
This is how it works (with pictures this time!):
Go to the Uniqlo Philippines Facebook page and click on the U-Shop. U-Win. tab.
Once you click on "Start Playing Now", you will be asked to register and create your own avatar. The choices are rather limited and it doesn't really matter, but once you have your own avatar ready, you will be taken to this screen:
This screen basically tells you everything that you need to know in order to play the game.
Then you will be brought to the virtual SM Mall of Asia Uniqlo store where the game will officially begin.
Once inside, you can go through racks of different men's and women's clothing and accessories and shop with your available virtual shopping points.
If you are running low on shopping points, no worries - you can just click on the tabs on the top part of the gaming screen (13SS Collection, Uniqlo Website, and Aura Opening) to get more and find out more about Uniqlo's 2013 Spring/Summer Collection, the brand itself and its SM Aura opening at Bonifacio Global City.
When choosing the items that you want to buy in the virtual store, you will be shown the price and the different colors underneath. Add whatever you want to your cart and when your done with your virtual shopping, head on over to the cashier section.
As you can see, it looks exactly like the Uniqlo SM Mall of Asia cashiers, as well! This is where the game of luck comes in. When about to pay for your items, you will have to choose one of these lucky cashiers to claim an instant prize after each game that you play.
Most of the time, you will get 500 additional shopping points for your next game, but if you're lucky, you'll get a minor prize. I've actually already won a Uniqlo gift certificate worth 500 pesos myself! Double woot!
If you end up winning, as well, you will get an email with the following details:
It will also tell you when and where you can redeem and use your gift coupon.
Interested in winning? Then start playing U-Shop U-Win now until May 5, 2013. :)
At the end of the promo period, those who played the game, logged in and played more will have more chances of winning one of the major prizes.
Aside from this Facebook promo, you should also take note that Uniqlo will be opening a new two-storey store at Bonifacio Global City's SM Aura soon - their first store opening in the Philippines this year.
Are you as excited as I am? :D Hope you enjoy the game! I'm loving it so far! :)
