Ok I have been saying that Old Navy should offer more coupons for a long time. I hated that I would recieve coupons in the mail but could only use them if I used my Old Navy Credit Card. To me that is not really saving. I have all my credit cards paid off and I do not want to rack up another bill just to use a coupon.
Well recently Old navy started a promotion on OldNavyWeekly.Com at first I thought Yeah Old Navy is finally listening to us! They were putting out coupons for $75/$100, $50/ $100,$45 off and many more. I thought it was very clever how they did the website where it was like a scavenger hunt to be able to find the coupons. There were secret things you could do, sort of an interactive website, in order to get the coupons. I won't post the secrets here because I don't want to upset my frugal shoppers nor do I want to spoil the fun for Old Navy.
The only thing wrong with this promotion is you have to sit by your computer and just wait till the website refreshes and you never know when that is going to be. I am mom of 2 and I work full time. So I do not have time to sit in front of my computer all day long in hopes to get a coupon.
Here's the other thing. People who really want to use the coupon in the store are not getting them. People are sitting by their computers waiting for the coupons, gobbling them up and then selling and trading them. There are a ton of them popping up on Ebay? So even if you are a regular shopper and you sit all day by your computer you may not get one because the resellers are grabbing them all up!
Third Issue: People that do get them are taking them to the store and the stores are refusing to take them? Either cashiers did not know about the promotion or they thought they were fake.This is not good PR.
The reason for this post is I am getting emails from readers who are having these very same issues and they need to be heard.
Old Navy… We love that you are coming out with more coupons…. we even love that you are making it fun. Please re-think how you do your promotions in the future. What about coupons for your loyal shoppers who subscribe by email. What about coupons for your loyal shoppers who don't have access to the internet?
If you have something to say about this promotion please post here! We want to know your likes and dislikes. Do you have an idea that Old Navy could use for future promotions we want to hear that to! This is your chance to be heard!
P.S. I would like to say Thank you to all those nice people out there who have been kind enough to help those who really need the coupons get them before the resellers do.
