FUN Review & Giveaway! (Executive Gift Shoppe)

22 Feb

Christa at Little BGCG and His Mama Review It! did a review on a stunning, SPARKLY business card holder from Executive Gift Shoppe this week. I read her review and LOVED the items that she choose to spotlight in addition to the card holder. My hubby and I decorated (er…are in the process of decorating) our eat-in kitchen area with a beer theme and Executive Gift Shoppe has some really unique and fantabulous things that are going to go great with our decor.

Christa is running a giveaway on her blog RIGHT NOW until March 14. There are many opportunities to win and the prize is a $25 gift card to The Executive Gift Shoppe!

I wanted to share this for a few reasons.

  1. Christa is awesome
  2. Her son, Mason is adorable and I want you to see him too
  3. I want you to have the opportunity to win too!
  4. OK, OK…I want to win so I can continue decorating my eat-in-kitchen on the cheap.

So go check it out and enter to win!

STELLAR Discount Site

19 Nov

I am all about discount sites such as ZulilyTotsy, & Green Baby Bargains (just to name a few).  But today I would specifically like to tell you about my experience today with Zulily.  About two weeks ago, I ordered a pair of maternity jeans and a maternity shirt for a ginormous discount.  I received the package today and was very disappointed to find that my shirt had been sent on the hanger, and said hanger had somehow punctured the thin cotton shirt during shipping.  I immediately called Zulily (after tearing up for a second) to [skeptically] see what they would do for me.  I was not on hold for even one second when a gentleman answered the phone.  I told him my problem and he apologized profusely before asking me 3 simple account questions to verify that it was actually me.  Because Zulily is a discount site, he explained that they do not usually have the same item in stock but that he would check and ship it to me if they did.  Unfortunately, they did not have my shirt in stock but he offered to refund me the cost of the shirt PLUS an additional $10 for the “inconvenience”.  He also explained that because Zulily does not accept returns, (most major-discount sites don’t), that I could also keep the shirt.  The hole is right in the bicep but I think that with my creative juices flowing, I will be able to find a cute “fix” for the hole.  Perhaps I’ll mend the hole (not on a seam) and sew some buttons on the mended portion.  The credit showed up in my account within 10 minutes and I was able to purchase 2 Charlie Banana cloth diapers and only had to pay $7.95  PLUS, I get to keep my shirt.

ANYWAYS, I just wanted to share what an awesome experience I had with Zulily today.  The products that they offer are always quality and their discounts are seriously stellar.  I only receive one email per day so they are not at all overwhelming.  I am still in awe of the superior customer service that I received today.  I hope that everyone reading this will check them out, if not already signed up.
