Hello Kitty fans are once again in for a treat as AF Payments Inc., in partnership with Sanrio and Daiso Japan, announce another release of Limited Edition Hello Kitty beep cards with four all-new kawaii designs. These collectible cards, with designs that are exclusive to Daiso Japan, are perfect for gifting this holiday season.
Elegantly styled in a classic black, white, and gold combo, each card is sold for P188 (with no load) in all Metro Manila branches of Daiso Japan and its official store in Shopee. Customers can start buying the Hello Kitty beep cards in Daiso Japan stores starting December 13.
“Our first launch back in March was like Hello Kitty herself ─ phenomenal! Selling out only days after the release. So this time, we’re calling all Hello Kitty fans and beep™ card collectors to stock up on the new designs before they run out! It’s a great addition to any collection, especially as we commemorate the 45th anniversary of the iconic character,” said Agnes Padilla, Marketing Head of AF Payments Inc.
As a special treat to customers nationwide, Daiso Japan is holding an exclusive promo for online shoppers in its official Shopee store.
“Hello Kitty-branded items are among our all-time bestsellers so we’re really excited for our customers to cop the new beep™ card designs in our branches and also online now in our Shopee store. This is to accommodate requests from our loyal customers outside the metro who also like to get their hands on the limited edition cards, as well as for those who simply enjoy the convenience of online shopping,” said Bernice Jayne Chioa-Bunoan, Marketing Services Manager of Daiso Japan.
More than its beautiful collectible designs, however, the beep card is a payment card conveniently used in all three elevated railways (LRT-1, LRT-2, and MRT-3), select bus lines (BGC Bus, Citylink, DNS, HM Transport, RRCG, RRCG East, TAS Trans, Lancaster New City, Bellefort Estates, San Agustin Transport, and UBE Express Inc.), Clemenisle e-trikes in Intramuros, modern jeepneys, NLEX, CAVITEX and select retail partners (Robinsons Movieworld, Auntie Anne’s, Binalot, Worship Generation, Wendy’s, FamilyMart, and Ministop).
