Cyber Monday will let me buy this beauty online for almost a third off its original price here in the Philippines. But then that means I’ll have to have over USD 500 in my PayPal account, which has of course, never happened in all the years that I’ve had it. I may have had an accumulated total of over a thousand at one point, but I don’t remember having had more than a hundred at a time.
That’s because I withdraw the funds into my bank account as soon as it reaches a hundred. There was a time when withdrawals to Philippine bank accounts took almost a week, but the last time I downloaded my PayPal funds it took only two days, and that was over the weekend even. Things are looking good for PayPal and Unionbank. Hope it stays that way, or improves perhaps to a 24-hour transaction? That would be nice.
