Update – Vancouver Olympics 2010

3 Feb

I guess now that we got a little bit of snow, the Olympics organizers in Vancouver can take a sigh of relief.

I was reading somewhere that pretty much all the snow on the mountains has to be artificial and even then there might not be enough to cover everything. How funny would it be if 2 days before the Olympics start we have to cancel it. I don’t think anything like that has ever happened, and if they cancel it does that mean there would be no Olympics in 2010 or that the location has to be different? So confusing. But either way, world, have no fear. We have snow now!!!!

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!!!!!! 🙂
