Here’s my way of strengthening relationships in the workplace:
Give your news director coupons.
(Seriously! People really like it when you save them money. Really, it’s like giving them money without having to exchange currency.) I really did do this once with my current news director. She seemed to appreciate the gesture. It was an Ann Taylor coupon.
This particular Ann Taylor coupon is pretty neat. Essentially, get $20 off ANY Purchase using this coupon and if you try on a pair of their new shoes. (You don’t have to buy the shoes.) WHICH MEANS… you can buy something on sale for just $20 and it’ll be free! Check it out: http://ebm.cheetahmail.com/c/tag/hBLbAr-BdYR8vB74sv4B3rks74u/doc.htm
Of course, it’s always best to call ahead to make sure the deal works at the location you’re going to. Enjoy!
PS: Big thanks to one excellent money-saving diva, Joanie Demer for this one. She’s also known as The Krazy Coupon Lady (we had her on Channel 9 last year) and sure has sass while saving! Check out her site www.TheKrazyCouponLady.com)
