What to do with Savings from #NoCashout for #SmartiPhone6S

In a previous post, I mentioned about Smart's offer for the iPhone6S and iPhone6S plus which involves No Cashouts. Yes, no cashouts! Perfect for Christmas, isn't it? I am seriously considering either Smart's Plan 2000 or Plan 2499 for the iPhone6S or 6S plus. The NoCashout would mean savings!

You see, I used the internet heavily specifically social media for healthcare. I maintain several blogs among them a blog for education of kidney patients (Even with PKD Life Goes On). Also I contribute to healthxph,net (along with 3 other doctors) being one of it's founders as part of our advocacy for using social media for healthcare. I maintain an offline and online dialysis support group known as Smiling Kidneys Club and is an active member of the Facebook support group DialysisPH. I also use social media for education and research, utilizing it as a tool for collaboration, communication and even, source of information. In the process of all of these, I take a lot of photos and videos, which is why the iPhone 6S or 6S plus is just perfect! What with their HD video recording at 30 or 60 fps, slo-mo video support, cinematic video stabilization, autofocus for the iSight camera, exposure controls among many other features.

Now back to the savings part. The estimated cash-out for the usual 24-month contract of a Plan 2000 is Php 6,000. So this 6000 pesos saving could mean extra money for my support group, the Smiling Kidneys Club! This December, our group plans to have a Christmas party for bonding and camaraderie and this savings can be converted to raffle draw prizes for them equivalent to erythropoietin injections for three patients and a dialyzer for another patient. Patients need every injection they can get to raise their hemoglobin and a dialyzer is good for approximately 10 dialysis sessions. The remaining amount can be used as Smart cellphone load among other lucky members.

With a Php 4,000 savings from an iPhone6S Plus Plan 2499 contract, our group can now have less one dialyzer as a price but more erythropoietin injections and Smart load. Now that's called living a #Smartlife with the savings obtained from Smart's iPhone 6S offers.

It will really be a Merry and Smart Christmas for me then.
