One of the most cherished Filipino traditions is sending “balikbayan boxes” filled with love, presents, and treats back home to the Philippines. These packages carry the warmth of family connections and the essence of home. In the past, balikbayan boxes were often sent exclusively during Christmas season due to high costs of shipping and lengthy delivery times. In this blog post, we’ll tell you how you can send love all year round!  

Did you know that you can now use your points to redeem LBC eGift cards in the OTT Remit app? These will allow you to enjoy discounts when sending your packages back home via sea cargo or even send a 1-lb package via air for free.

With the LBC eGift cards, you can save on shipping costs in two exciting ways:

  • Discounts on Sea Cargo:

    When sending your packages via sea, redeeming your eGift cards will give you the opportunity to enjoy substantial discounts on your shipping fees. Whether you're sending important documents, gifts for loved ones, or larger packages, these discounts will help you stretch your budget and stay connected with those who matter most.

  • Free Air Shipping for 1-lb Packages:

    Imagine sending a 1-lb package to the Philippines via air without having to pay for the shipping cost! LBC's eGift cards make this dream a reality. You can use your points to waive the shipping fees for a 1-lb package, allowing you to send urgent or valuable items quickly and securely without any additional expense.

Whether it’s a birthday surprise, a token of appreciation, or simply a random act of kindness, Filipinos can now send their heartfelt gifts and packages anytime, making everyday feel like a special occasion. The ability to send packages and to send money from Canada to the Philippines fosters a sense of togetherness that knows no boundaries.
