Weekend Freebies and Discounts
Don’t you love to get things for free? Or save a lot on an item that you have been dying to buy? Well, I was blessed to have-slash-get both this weekend.
Yesterday morning, while I was lazy being a couch potato, I heard someone someone from the outside called my name. I knew it wasn’t one of our neighbors as I heard my full complete name out loud. Then I thought, I was just one of those mailmen who delivers me credit card statements and/or utility bills. I instantly went out and the man asked me to present an ID. Then I thought again, it must be something more important than my credit card statement or utility bill. But what could it be? The courier guy then asked me to sign on a small document and and afterwhich, he handed me this package:
I then remembered, I got qualified to a credit card promotion last month. And this is what they gave-slash-sent me:
Yes, dear folks, it’s an original Mango Ladies Watch. Per the courier guy, it’s worth something like P4,000 (around US$80). So much for freebies, eh?! And this is how it looks on my wrist:
Cute, isn’t it? LOL.
It then reminded me of a similar gift from the same card company some 2 years back. This was their come-on freebie to encourgage people to be a part of their card holders’ population:
At that time, this cool Timex diving watch cost a bit over P2,000 (around US$40). Not bad for free stuff! Hehehe!
This morning, on the other hand, I took my mom to the mall as she wanted eat at this nice ice creme slash crepe parlor in Robinson’s Manila. I didn’t plan on buying anything so we just proceeded with our usual tour inside the mall. Before going home, we decided to pass by Rustan’s thrift shop where all items are on sale. It’s called the Red Tag. And as we were strolling, I browsed some sandals at a Crocs stall. Since it’s rainy season here in Pinas, I have been dying to buy myself a pair of plastic shoes so I don’t have be in slippers whenever I commute from home to the office and vice versa. Initially, I was thinking for buying a pair of nice Brazilian-made Grendha sandals since I knew Crocs is way too expensive for me (pero ‘wag ka, ang Nanay ko eh may red Crocs! hehehe!). It would force me to shell out more than P2,000 a pair. But not this one:
I got this pair of plastic (or is it rubber???) wedges for just P730 (around US$15). Isn’t that nice?!
So, that was my weekend. How was yours?
