The carnival is just around the corner, and I’ve seen plenty of shoes for sale.
I’m not a shoemaker, but I’ve done my share of buying shoes for friends and family.
So when I stumbled across a coupon for a shoe that would make me feel more comfortable, I was happy.
I thought, “If I’m going to do something to make the holidays special, I’ll do something for my wife”.
I’m sure there are lots of others out there who have a similar story.
But the one that sticks out to me is this one from India.
I found it on eBay and am now wondering how it got to me.
It reads, in part, “From 10.00pm to 11.00am, buy one shoe for Rs 30, no extra charges”.
So, the ad reads: From 10.30pm to 12.00 am, buy 1 pair of shoes.
The shoes cost Rs 30.
The coupon is valid till 11.30am on the day.
So, what’s the catch?
It says: “It can take up to 2 weeks to receive your order.
The order is accepted from 12.01am to 3.00 pm and will be shipped out the next business day”.
So what does this mean?
It means I can have a shoe shipped to me on the last day of the month.
That’s a big win!
But there is one catch.
As you can see, I have to use a different postal address for my order, and it is not for my own convenience.
I can’t just leave the coupon with my mum and then be on my merry way.
So I’ve added the option to accept the offer on a credit card or debit card.
I would like to thank all the people who contacted me about this.
You’ve done me the honour of getting a gift that is as good as or better than what I could have hoped for.
I will now go back to my day job, and will buy another pair of sandals for my husband, who is a professional golfer.
Happy holidays, everybody.
