Ever since it got hot, and I mean really hot, we’ve been needing a lightweight blanket to use as a bedspread. I looked at some from Target but didn’t see what I really wanted. I knew that I was eligible soon for another Macy’s gift card through the e-rewards program I participate in (more about that here, here and here), so I just bided my time. When my gift card finally came in the mail, I looked at the Macy’s website and found exactly what I wanted.
I decided to check my local Macy’s first, though, because I didn’t want to pay the $9.99 shipping if I didn’t have to. Sure enough, they had exactly what I wanted and it was on sale! Good thing, because it’s original price was frightening.
It was marked down to $49.99 and I had an additional coupon for another 15% off, brining it down to $42.29. With tax it came to $45.46. I had an earlier gift card with $1.47 left on it and, of course, one for $25.00. After those were applied, the blanket only cost me $18.99. That’s an 81% savings off the regular price. Not bad, if I do say so myself.
So far, I really like it. It’s just the right weight and the weave is nice and tight, so I don’t foresee a lot of the stretching that can happen with these blankets. Plus, it’s Ralph Lauren, so it’s kind of a small thrill for me to know it’s “designer” and I got it for a great price. Yeah, I don’t get out much.
I haven’t washed it yet so that will be the real test. In the meantime, I’m certainly enjoying it, as is J, who gets very hot when he sleeps. Plus, it’s a lovely addition to my bedding collection which keeps growing and growing and growing because I’m addicted.
Also, apropos of nothing, my friend Jen sent these flowers to me via J the other day. Aren’t they pretty?
She’s always sending me sweet little bouquets, which I LOVE. Thanks Jen! You’re a super special pal.
