As a member of Crowdtap and the Old Navy Style Council, I was able to take part in a "Sample & Share" (Definition: when a company provides you a sampling of their products, to try out, share with your friends/family and provide feedback for free or at no cost to you) for their new Winter Coat Line. For those of you who don't know who Crowdtap is or haven't experienced Crowdtap, I encourage you to visit Crowdtap, explore what they have to offer and of course SIGN UP, because you have no idea what you've been missing out on, as I sample and share some fantastic items from Old Navy.
The last sample and share I was a part of was a little bit of a complete bust, while I was able to SHARE my coupons with other's I wasn't able to sample them. When it comes to purchasing jeans from Old Navy, I have a complete customized style that for me means, I can only purchase my jeans online. But this time, I said OH NO! I'm getting me a new Old Navy Coat, there's no, if, ands, or buts about it, it was happening!
Well Crowdtap graciously sent me my coat coupons for me and one to share. This time around, naturally, I thought of my mother. With so much going on, time had passed me by, though I had viewed the many possible selections online and I had shared the prospects with my fellow tappers, it was the day before the coupon expired!!! My mother and I quickly head over to Old Navy and began ooohing and ahhhing over the gorgeous selections of Wool-Blend and Puff Coats.
Though no staff had to help us Oooh and Ahhh, we were very content in the selections they had available to try on, and the fact that the coats I adored were available in my size really made me all warm and fuzzy inside. My mom starting saying this coat is gorgeous, I want it, and What do you think of this one. I urged her to follow me into the fitting rooms to try them on so we could snap some photographs for this post! Surprisingly enough, my mother and I, ended up with the same set of coats, we thought we could help one another choose which one would be out favorites, we had several different styles, from the Peacoats and the Toggle Coats (which are super cute with a little hood, mom had it in her selections in the red).
We're in the fitting room, and they passers by are looking at us like we're strange, but we're not caring, we're trying on the coats,we're snapping photographs and we're really having a great time.
Our final selection of coats, happened to be these:
I was very excited trying them on, standing in the tall mirror, checking out how all of my assets viewed in the coats. My mom was so happy, I invited her to shop with me, but she never anticipated that I'd be inviting her to join in on the fun of shopping for a free coat. She thought I only had ONE coupon! I love surprises don't you?!
Well I'm going to share with you some of our photo pictures...
Well if you couldn't tell by now, we both settled on the Wool-Blend Cropped Peacoat, mine in the Burnt Umber and her's in the Black Plaid. We also stopped and looked at some of the accessories and I immediately fell in love with this Crochet Popcorn hat in Chocolate Kiss, doesn't it look adorable on me, but I also got the convertable mittens to match!
Here's the fantastic part, we make our purchases, additional items seperately, and our cashier is so enthusiastic about our good deal, she's interveiwing me about, how, where I scored this hot coupon. So as I'm telling her about Crowdtap and all of the wonderful things it has to offer, she's on the phone, trying to call her sister on the phone to tell her about my amazing coupon and about Crowdtap, she's trying to get her to sign up and sign up immediately! Then she calls up the manager not to dispute the coupon, but to tell him how fantatastic it is, how it rings up correctly and quickly removes the entire total cost of the coat! I really enjoyed this trip and the bonding time I was able to have with my mother. I enjoyed interacting and sharing all things Crowdtap with our cashier! So I'm giving HUGE SHOUT OUT's to CROWDTAP & OLD NAVY for making our experience enjoyable, pleasurable and exciting, there's nothing better than a little retail therapy plus bonding time with my mom.
Oh before I sign off until next time, I wanted to share with you a few tidbits about Old Navy right now, now when you spend $20 you'll receive a $10 coupon in return off your next purchase (must spend $20 to use the $10 off coupon), so on our trip we earned $60 off of $120! Also, their outerwear is on sale right at a huge reduction of up to 50% off!!! Lastly if you're headed into any one of the outlet stores they're having a hot sale on their Performance Fleece, yeah, BUY ONE GET ONE FREE, great time to stock up for sure!!!
Have I mentioned that I love Old Navy and Crowdtap?
Until Next Time,
