An Open Letter to Old Navy...

Dear Old Navy,

I am trying desperately to like you and your budget priced, fun and trendy clothing. Really, I am. My kids love you and I want to be part of the fun. See, a few weeks ago, I even blogged positively about you:!

After my glowing experience with you, I signed up for your weekly emails which promised to include coupons for additional encouragement to part with my slim amount of cash. that got me excited! You tickled my thoughts with that one. I had visions of us sharing many hours together as I carefully chose items in which to trade you my hard earned cash. .
I envisioned our future to be about regular time spent together and me making sure to keep up with your teasingly great Deal of the Week. In return, I only expected that you would put out just a little love by giving me a coupon. But, no, Old Navy, you have taunted me - and challenged my limited early morning email reading/checking skills. Through blurry eyes I have scoured your weekly email ads and tried to play your evil, self esteem killing game "click around to find the coupon". Ha! I have clicked and reclicked, and spoken not favorably under my breath about you, and still NO coupon. I have given you my email address, freely at every turn - just in case, that might provide me with just a little coupon ecstasy. What a one sided relationship this has been. I feel used, lied to and tricked for your own fun and games. Is this really what we were supposed to be about?

(BTW, The point is made better if read out loud in an emotion-filled Antonio Banderas voice or possibly as Jack Black in Nacho Libre!.)


  1. This is so funny, Miss are a hoot! I hope they see this and bless you with money saving options!


  2. I feel your pain!

    I finally clicked on the link at the bottom and requested to have my email address taken off of their list!

    Good luck in your pursuit of a coupon for Old Navy!

  3. Hate it when a company plays those kinds of games with me. I'm with Amy, I'd take myself off that list.

  4. The coupons are pretty hard to find. Usually you have to take one thing and move it somewhere else. This week a couple of them were move four stars and unzip a boot. The amazing coupons are long gone by the time I figure it out! Maybe you'll have better luck.

  5. I hear ya!I don't think I ever signed up for VS email but every day they send me an email saying the sale ends in one day. Every day. I don't even shop there. If you are not going to send me coupons, please don't email!

  6. haha...that is hilarious! well done. i like my coupons, too.


Thank you for stopping by...leave a little of your sparkle before you go!
