This has been a very discouraging week for me. I'd rather not go into the details on such a public blog, but it's been seriously dragging me down.
When I went online to see how much my "secret rewards" card from Victoria Secret was worth. I found out that it was worth $100. Wow.
A couple of weeks ago, my sister Andria sent me my birthday present, a gift card to VS (yes, my birthday is in August). But I don't mind her procrastination because last month, for every purchase you made from VS, you got a mysterious rewards card. Starting December 1st, you could log online and see how much it was worth. Each card was worth at least $10.
You can imagine my excitement when I realized that I had $100 that I couldn't apply to bills, something for Chubbs, or Christmas presents (since I have already bought for everyone except for one brother-in-law...and that would just be supremely awkward).
What does that mean? Guilt free shopping!
I had a list of things to get done this morning....yep, none of them got done.
It's serious business figuring out the best way to spend $100. If you've every shopped VS before, you realize that could easily be spent on one item. I was determined to see how much I could pack into my winnings.
After hours of online searching for promotions, free items, discount codes- two calls in to their help line, and earnest searching on their online catalog- I ended up with
2 tank tops
1 fleece jacket
All for free! I'm also taking my second card in (worth only $10) and a $10 off that I earned today into the store to get some pajama bottoms and some free undies.
I know this is going to sound silly, but I felt somehow as if this was a sign that the situation that I'm going through right now is going to resolve itself in a good way.
I hope so. Because I want this feeling of glorious elation to last.
Thanks Andria, for the best birthday present ever....(-:
p.s. Dear Santa, I need to remove a few things from my previously submitted list....
