End of an Era

May 31st, 2011 at 09:03 pm

The firm that I worked for 26 years had a staff discount cards for those that work for them and all retires that had work more than 15 years with this firm, they were worth 5% off goods purchases. About 5 years ago this firm was bought out by another firm which changed its staff discount system so that after 5 years all retires will drop off the system that was yesterday for us that were with the old firm.

I did go to some of the stores over the past week and bought my lasted staff discount items, 5% doesnít seem much but every little helps. I did buy my grocery last week as our flooded local store reopen, and bought a film, slides & photograph scanner $99.00 (RRP $139.00) less my 5% discount that I still need to load on to my computer also bought a new Sunbeam electric skillet that I wanted but couldnít find one on special but I ran into one yesterday so I bought it for $39.00 (RRP $59.00) less my 5% discount.

Am I going to miss these discounts the answer is NO. As I will not be so company focus in my shopping now and I can get just as good specials with other companies be it that will now pay 5% more for my goods but that is not the case if I work the system right by buy store cards to use at these stores. A few companies are selling these cards with a discount of 5% off the purchase price and not just the company that I work for. I just have to make sure that I donít lose them or use them before expiring which is around 1 year for some and 2 years for others.

So here is to the new shopping era.

    As clever and smart as you are, I'm sure you will find equal if not better discounts!
