This is a three part post, mainly about BR coupons, but I need your help with something at the end of this post.
1) I went to Banana Republic the other day and while I was there, I asked for a set of those 40%, one-time use coupons that are available for use on upcoming Wednesdays. The SA said they were all out of them and she gave me the following coupon instead. She said it might be better than the other one. This coupon going around is good for 25%, 35% or 50% off. In my past experience, you have to wait until the date of the mystery coupons to come into the store and find out what % savings you’ve won. The SA didn’t tell me that I could just open the danggone thing and find out right away. I happened to open it tonite and find that out. It says ‘LOOK INSIDE’ at the bottom, but it’s sort of blending in with the ocean so I just didn’t see it.
So I opened it tonite and discovered that my coupon is worth 35% off. This is off an entire purchase and there are 2 coupons. One is good on 6/5 and the other good on 6/12. Both for 35% off. Pretty good. But I have to say, service is definitely where BR is lacking. They don’t connect with me as a customer and I’m not compelled to go in the store. If there is a time constraint or fatigue issue, I will leave Banana Republic off the list. Even if I have to walk past it to get to the car.
I just got this coupon last Friday, so check your local BR.
2) I skipped going into BR today because, as I said, I don’t have an engaging experience there. However, something kept telling me to go to Auntie Anne’s for a pretzel dog even though I don’t want to eat processed meats like that. Auntie Anne’s is right by BR. I went to get my little doggie and guess what I found at the register. A stack of BR 40% coupons! I took a small number of them. Then I decided to double dip.
I have a total of 14 to giveaway. In the interest of time, I’m not going to do a draw. The first 14 people who email me will get a set of coupons. The coupons are only good in Banana Republic stores, not online and not in Factory Stores. The coupons are good at BRs in the US and Canada. Yes, I will mail a set of coupons if you live in Canada. 🙂 My email is gigiofca at gmail.It is very important that you put ‘BR coupon’ in the subject line. I will answer emails in the order recvd and will be looking for that subject line.
ETA – coupons are gone
3) And then finally…who out there has own tall suede boots? I’m wondering if the care is worth purchasing a pair. I don’t mind spraying and brushing them from time to time, but if they’re going to look awful after a short period of time, I’d just as soon pass.
What say you…?
