Here are suggestions on how you can make sure you'll enjoy the sale and come home with only the best deals.
Ride the free MyBus to SM Seaside from BDO Fuente (with 20-minute intervals). You can also avail of a P50 discount on your Grab ride to and from SM Seaside by using the promo code SMSEASIDE50.

Come as early as opening time to get a head start. The mall opens 10 a.m. on the 13th and 15th, and 9 a.m. on the 14th. You can begin by going through the two-storey SM Store as lines can get crazy later in the day.
Additional discounts await when you shop at The SM Store and some selected SM affiliate brands: “Prestige Friday” offers a 10 percent discount for SM Prestige and Diamond Rewards cardholders for the entire day.

Bring a large tote where you can put all your purchases in. One can also purchase a tote bag at The SM Store for only P50. If you don’t want to carry bags the entire day, you can leave them at the package counter (Lower Ground Floor, Mountain Wing Atrium).
Here's a tip: Download the SM Supermalls app. SM Seaside is a massive mall so the store locator in the app will come in handy.
For a quick lunch, you can head to the mall's Food Court! Choose from several cuisines offered like Japanese, Korean, Filipino or Italian—there’s definitely something for everybody.
Here's another tip: Avoid the crowds by having lunch earlier or later than noon. As mall goers will most likely be having lunch between noon and 1 p.m., this window will give you an ample amount of time to go shopping with less of the crowd.
If you have little ones in tow, bring them to Strollerz (Lower Ground Floor, City Wing) and Jolo's Kiddie Carts (Lower Ground Floor, Seaview Wing). There is also a breastfeeding station (Second Floor, City Wing) for nursing moms.

This is the perfect time to go out at The Sky Park as the heat isn’t as scorching anymore. Children will enjoy the Sky Play and Water Play!
