Send coupons with shower invitations

I'm new to this group, so bear with me if you've all heard this before. I belong to freecycle and recently replied to a post from someone who wanted coupons for Bed Bath and Beyond. Lots of coupons!!! So I asked "why"? Turns out she was sending the coupons out with the shower invitations.

    Default Send coupons with shower invitations

    I'm new to this group, so bear with me if you've all heard this
    before. I belong to freecycle and recently replied to a post from
    someone who wanted coupons for Bed Bath and Beyond. Lots of
    coupons!!! So I asked "why"? Turns out she was sending the coupons
    out with the shower invitations. Guests can save 20% on their
    purchases (and hopefully buy a better gift).

    Personally I think it's brilliant. She posted her "want" several
    months before the shower to have enough time to accumulate them. The
    store even accepts expired coupons. It's great for the store too,
    because they get more customers.

    that is a good idea.. my friend did something like that when she got out of college.
    Ich möchte ein eisbär sein, am kalten polar.... Dan müßte ich nicht mehr schrein... Alles wär so klar... Eisbären müssen nie weinen
    I'd like to be a polar bear, at the cold polar.. Then I wouldn't have to cry anymore.. Everything would be so clear.. Polar bears never have to cry

    Very good idea! I'll have to try this sometime. Not that I'll be having a shower anytime since I've been married for 6 years but I'm sure I can work it in other ways.
