Every year the Houston branch of the American Cancer Society brings together local retailers, salons, etc to offer discounted services and goods to benefit the American Cancer Society. The card requires a donation of $70, which then gives you the right to make purchases at 20% off at hundreds of Houston areas retailers. Tons (from Anthropologie, Gap, to Pottery Barn, and Restoration Hardware, plus lots of local places like Berings). We try to support most cancer research/support initiatives, especially local efforts. We've bought this card for years and feel good donating to this cause. Also, we've saved tons of money using the card. If you live in Houston, please consider purchasing a Shopping Card; it has a great mission. Helping others while helping yourself to a good deal- that's a Friday Favorite.
I took the day off Thursday to get a bunch of very glamorous things done-like carpet cleaning- I might have used my Shopping card today. I might have used to to buy this dress (Sold out online) in my size-on sale-plus 20%off. Score! *Yes, I got my promotion, but the dress was sold out when I went to buy it. The WONDERFUL Anthropologie saleswoman searched and searched until she found one in my size.
