Sister : Oh. My. God.
Me : What’s wrong?
Sister : You bought me all the things I asked for?
Me : Isn’t that what you wanted?
Sister : I did. But I never thought you would actually do it! I gave you the list expecting you would buy at least a couple of items from the list. That would have been more than enough for me.
Me : So you are not happy about this? I don’t have a return option for most of these you know.
Sister : You are not returning any of my gifts. Not the jeans. Or this top. Or that dress. Don’t even think of the watch!
Me : So the necklace?
Sister : Not even that.
Me : Then stop complaining and enjoy your gifts!
Sister : Thank you! This must have cost you a bomb! I feel really guilty. I want to make it up to you!
Me : But…
Sister : I am not listening to anything. I know you’re really busy and you always have office or this or that to do! But tomorrow we’re going out for dinner. My treat! Your choice.
I thought of the incident from two weeks ago.
Me : It is my sister’s eighteenth birthday! What do I get for her? And what all do I drop? She has a long list of demands!
Friend : Why do want to drop things out of the list?
Me : Because she has expensive taste and I have limited means!
Friend : Heard of online shipping?
Me : Heard of expensive stuff still being expensive in online shopping? I am just waiting for one of those day sales to come my way! But the good stocks don’t even last long enough for me to get to the shopping cart!
Friend : Those deals can be really painful to deal with! I was up at 7 am the other day huddled in front of the laptop with my mother to buy one of those funky watches for my brother. He had been eyeing it for a while now. First it took us five minutes of wait time to even access the website. And then after we gained access, it was out of stock by the time we managed to locate it on the website! How can so many people be after the same watch at 7 in the morning? It’s hard to believe but I bought him the very same watch at an even lower price the next day!
Me : How did you manage that?
Friend : I came across a website 27coupons.com. They have the most amazing deals for online shopping! I tried their deals for Jabong.com.
Me : Really? And they’re always available?
Friend : Yes. They have deals expiring after a certain time period but they will always have something new on offer. Something new and amazing!
Sister : What are you thinking?
Me : Oh! Nothing!
Sister : Tomorrow night is final then?
Me (speaking) : Yes. I’m fine with it.
Me (thinking) : She doesn’t really need to know I got discounts as high as 60% on international brands and covering products from watches, apparel, jewelry, et al! I’ll tell her about http://www.27coupons.com/stores/jabong.com/. Later.
P.S. : This is a sponsored post but the views expressed are genuine. It is so much easier to utilize these coupons rather than wait for the sales.
