APP OF THE WEEK: Retailmenot

23 Jan

I’ve been having great fun using the app Retailmenot for about four or five months now.  I stumbled upon www.retailmenot.com looking for printable coupons for online purchases I was making (Vistaprint, Discount Dance, Old Navy, JoAnns.)  While searching once on my phone for coupons I discovered that Retailmenot was also an app for the iPhone.  I don’t know if there is a Retailmenot app for the Android, but you can always print coupons from the web on your home computer.

Retailmenot displays coupons for a variety of retailers, for both online and brick-and-mortar stores.  After downloading the app, I was delighted to discover that when I drive by a mall, my phone alerts me that there are new “coupons for the Boulevard Mall” (or Fashion Show, or Galleria, etc.)

I first used the mobile app at Bath and Body Works, where I saved around $25 on two purchases.  I broke up my purchases into two different sales (which the cashier was fine with) so I could take advantage of two different coupons.

Now, before I buy ANYTHING, I check Retailmenot to see if a coupon exists for a particular retailer.

Kohls PAID ME to “buy” their underwear!

15 Jan

When I was developing my act “Add it Up” last August, I was not only pressed for time (2 weeks) but I was flat broke.  I had to make a costume with everything I already had, including the bra I was actually wearing the minute I decided to create the routine (I literally took it off and started sewing embellishments on it.)

Since I purchase supplies like crystals, sequins, fringe, trim, etc, when I can get it for relatively cheap, I had most everything I needed for the costume.  What I didn’t have was a thong to use as the base for the final costume piece.

I thought about looking at the .99 Store, K-mart, Fallas Paredes, etc., but talked myself out of all of them because I not only didn’t want a poor quality pair of panties, but because I really REALLY didn’t have any money.  I did, however, have $10 in Kohls Cash from a previous purchase.  I figured I could probably find a thong for $10, then I would only have to pay the tax.

Well, I found TWO thongs for $9.99, one in the color I needed (red) and one neutral color.  I figured I would save the neutral pair for a future costume.  I get to the register with my panties, my Kohl’s Cash and $1.00 to pay the tax.  As the cashier rings up my “purchase,” I asked “I just have to pay the tax, right?”  She tells me that no, I did not have to pay the tax, and in fact, she would be giving me a penny back! I was dumbfounded.  To this day, I cannot get over the fact that I was just given two pair of panties and a penny from Kohl’s for having made a previous purchase.
