I bought it. Yup. What happened? Let me tell you the tale.
On a fateful Thursday, I received an email from Hudson’s Bay VIP Rewards to let me know that my points balance was 9,494 (for non-Canadians, Hudson’s Bay is like Macy’s). This means I actually have enough to redeem for a $40 gift card (2,000 pts = $10). Then I scroll down and I see an offer:
That’s like getting $10 back for spending $50 – that’s 20% off – pretty good. But only on cosmetics and fragrances – hrm. Never mind.
