November 25th prompt for the challenge – Tell us about the last thing a person or an advertisement convinced you to buy
Anyone who knows me knows that I am a huge tea drinker and my place is David’s Tea (check them out!). Okay, I lied; my place to shop is Chapters/Indigo but David’s is a close second. Their teas are a little pricier than what you buy in the grocery store but they are a luxury that I enjoy when the budget allows it.
I get their promotions by email so I always know where my hard-earned dollars are going to next. Back in August, they had a promotion going on their travel mugs where, if you bought one, you got a free 50 gram bag of the tea of your choice. That’s a seven to eight dollar saving so you can bet that I made a beeline to the nearest store.
I bought their Travel Cup (12 ounce, $29.50) and absolutely love it!! Yeah, it’s a little pricey and I definitely cringed a bit but, boy oh boy, was it worth every penny! This thing absolutely does NOT leak even a little bit which is a problem that I have had with other, cheaper, travel mugs.
|Look, no handle so it fits in your cup holder!|
Also, it keeps the tea hot for hours. I make a tea before I leave home at about 6:30 - 6:45 and it’s still hot when I finally finish drinking it at about 9:30.
Obviously, I’m a sucker for advertising from this store but, in this case, that’s a good thing
