I ordered roman shades today from JCPenny. What’s the big deal of that you say? The big deal is that after I placed my order I got an email telling me that on my next order, I can take off 10% and have FREE shipping. Well, isn’t that lovely? Why didn’t they just give it to me on this order? Like, NOW?
I will tell you that I keep note pads in almost every room of my house for when I get something brilliant to write about, it doesn’t come in one ear and go out the other. If I don’t write things down, I forget about it and I had this written down!! It happened to me at Christmas. I had ordered Paul and I new snowshoes and boots. While I was there I was checking them out for Bailey, Trinity and Christopher and “couldn’t help myself” and got them all a pair too. I spent almost $600 at that store and as soon as I placed my order, I get a letter from them telling me I will save 20% on my next order if it’s placed before Feb. 17.
Well give me a break. After spending money like that I highly doubt I’ll be spending money within the next two months. That’s an awful lot of money. You mean to tell me they couldn’t have given me a deal of some kind on an order like that? Sue buys stuff from there and I told her if she wanted to use the code she could but like me, who shops this close after Christmas?
I realize the “why” they do it. So you’ll shop there again but isn’t there a way they can look you up somehow to see your shopping habits? I am very loyal to the stores I shop at. If I need something for my home like blinds or drapes or rugs, stuff like that, Penny’s is the first place I look. I have gotten a lot of things on sale but if only once, someone gave me a deal like that “when” I was placing my order, I’d be more apt to shop there again viruses the “ploy” to get me back by giving me the “next time” deal. All that does is irritate me as I know “why” they are doing it.
Besides, I lose them and if I do order something, do you think I can find it from two months ago???
Okay, I’m done now.
