It's raining Coach, Hallelujah!
I've had the best day ever cause I got a DEAL!!!!! I was recently put in charge of buying the gifts for the women who work in our office Nurses; receptionists, office managers etc. For the last two years I received a 25% off coupon from Coach in December and I thought it would be great to get the wristlets for the girls. However, no coupon came. In my quest for a coupon I was talking to my girlfriend who suggested that I go into the store and talk to the manager there. Well, I never would have thought of that, but I did it. And it worked! At first they gave me the run around...the old, "you may not even get the coupon" then there was the "you could buy these and then return them when or if you get the coupon" Whatever! Finally, after talking forever, the manager came up front and then the real work began. She said she thought that if I bought enough, the discount would automatically kick in...awesome I thought....I'm buying 25 items...however I guess $1300 wasn't enough cause she told me if I only spent $2000 dollars then I'd get the discount...again, Whatever! That was not working for me...so I told her if we could only get the discount, I could place my order right now! (Side note: If you buy more than 3 of the same items at Coach they have to approve you...weird....you have to give them the reason and the company you are ordering for in order for them to assure them you are not going to sell them on ebay.) So the manager disappeared for 10 minutes and then came back and said that miraculously the company was going to give me the discount! Whoo Hoo! I ordered 28 wristlets...one for me, of course...and saved close to $300!!!!!!! AWESOME!! It's been a good day!
