Have you ever heard of Scoopfactory? It’s quite an enjoyable daily email that gives you great info on events, dining, fashion and more . . . I’m endorsing for the following reasons:
1. It’s written with wit and cleverness, 2 of my favorite things.
2. I like being in the loop on important happs, and duh they give you the scoop.
3. They have contests all the time where you can win fun stuff. I just entered for a $200 Barney’s gift card last week and all you have to do is send them an email to enter, no giving out info for marketing junk. (I’m allowed to say “marketing junk” since I’m a bonafide marketer.)
4. Today’s email had a funny bit about the Yankees in it, and as evidence by my recent blogs (and a dream I had last night featuring Mark Teixeira, weird.) I’m a fan! Here’s a sample copied from today's Scoop. . .
Steve Miller left on a jet plane. We’re leaving on a really discounted Southwest flight.
Airline flight sales are hardly worth it when you discover all the concessions (we’re not talking in-flight snacks, we mean redeyes, black out dates, alternative airports). But when Southwest has a sale, it’s usually easy and honest. There’s only about 48 hours left for the big 4th Quarter Sale, with one-ways priced between $25 and $100. The deals are good for travel between Dec. 2-16, 2009 and Jan. 5-Feb. 10, 2010. That’s right, Vegas for about a hundy. New York for about dos.
Speaking of New York, tonight is Game One of the World Series between the Phillies and the Yanks. If you know any Philly fans who are heading to NYC for those games, you may want to offer them a little advice: Stay at the Hotel Indigo in Chelsea. Why? The place is offering a “Drown Your Sorrows” package for Philly fans only: when their team loses the World Series (”As expected,” says the hotel), guests will receive a free bottle of Perrier-Jouet Champagne to help offer them more false hope in life. They must show a game ticket and valid Philly ID. Rooms start around $450 for tonight and tomorrow. Click here for more info.
Way to go Hotel Indigo - that's classic! Don't you want to enjoy these tid bits too? Go to Scoopfactory and sign up. . . you can thank me later. Okay fine, now is good too . . . YOU'RE WELCOME.
