Mmmmm…cashmere!!!!

26 Nov

 

Today I walked into cashmere heaven… Canada are you ready….Banana Republic is having a cashmere sale.

Beautiful vee neck sweaters for both men and women only for $98 and infinity scarves for $48. How awesome is that? I got myself a nice lavender sweater and a pretty pink scarf! Merry Christmas to me!!!!

I love these types of promos. Limited time, limited quantities and crazy shoppers. Awesome mixture!

One thing I do enjoy about the holiday shopping season is the great deals retail companies have. Well, not all of them but most retailers go all out to bring in every passerby inside their store. Specially this year everyone is on over drive. So, don’t forget my discount hunting friends, sign up for your favorite brands e-letters. You wont regret it. If you are one of those people who hates getting spam mail in to your inbox do what I do, open a shopping email account. Every time you want to sign up for a e-letter just use that email and save yourself from having to press the delete button 30 times an hour and still get all those amazing deals!

So, happy hunting….

Love the Discounts!

9 Nov

I’m not sure why people are still talking about the recession and using lines  like “in these tough times”, I work in a retail store and I see no tough times, i see lots of demanding people who want to get more for their buck but oh boy oh boy, they have no problem dropping a few bills for a pair of pants, t-shirts and a sweater given the perk of having their discount coupons!!!!

I for one love discounts and promotions and secret shopping events. There’s nothing better than knowing that I paid %40 less than other people for my cashmere sweater, or that I remembered that there was a %20 discount coupon in LouLou for a store that I want to shop at. One of the things I have learned by working in retail is, always make friends with the staff or the managers, it pays off!

I’m not saying like anything sketchy is going on, but lets say they might give you an extra coupon or let you know when new items are going on sale and offering to put a side your size for you, giving you an advantage over other shoppers. Another tip is to always have an email account dedicated to mailing lists to your favorite retailers, extra coupons people!! So next time you’re shopping at your favorite store, pay attention to the person who’s helping you, ask their name and ask if they have a mailing list.

Here are some of my favorite stores in Canada who happen to have good mailing lists:

BCBG.com : random discounts and $100 off of you purchase of $300 and more

Shoppersdrugmart.ca : 20 times the points, 15 times the point or %15 off

Bananarepublic.ca: Spend $125 get %25 off, random coupons for %25 to %30 off, secret events

Clubmonaco.com: Gift with purchase or student discounts

Bestbuy.ca: Sales, promotions and if you’re a reward member coupons!!!

Ill let you guys know if there are more good sites to sign up for…. 🙂

Happy discount shopping!!!!!! 🙂
