What do you think of my new sandals?
I love them. Super comfortable, great for walking, and also cute. I bought them online from Naturalizer, to replace my three-year old pair of walking sandals, also from Naturalizer, that had finally walked their last step.
What I also love? I started my shopping experience at the CAARewards site, and entered Naturalizer.ca through the CAA eStore. All I had to do was enter my membership number after clicking the link for Naturalizer.ca. By taking that one little detour, I not only got a great deal on my sandals on sale, I also earned 10% of my purchase back in CAA Dollars®. How cool is that?
What can I do with those CAA Dollars? Well, they are saved in my CAA member account, and they can be applied towards the cost of my membership renewal, CAA insurance premiums, travel booking, or travel merchandise purchases. The more you shop through the CAA eStore, the more Rewards you'll receive and the closer you'll get to earning free membership or your next vacation.
Personally, I'm a big fan of online shopping. I don't like crowds, and I really enjoy shopping in my pajamas. There's also the fact that shopping online tends to offer a better range of styles and sizes, so I'm more likely to find success in my search for that perfect item. Beginning my shopping experience at the CAA eStore is an easy first step. and it definitely pays off in the end.
Of course, there are many brick and mortar Partners as well, where you can shop in person and show your CAA member card to enjoy instant savings. Payless Shoe Source, for instance, offers 10% off regular priced merchandise, and Gap Outlet will give you 10% off everything - even sale items.
September is coming sooner than any of us might want to think. Head on over to the CAARewards page and check out all the places you can save on those necessary back to school purchases. You'll be surprised at how quickly your rewards add up.
