Target & TOMS Are One For One, For All! #TOMSforTarget

one-for-one-for-allWe all love TOMS, the shoe company that is also a philanthropic force helping those in need around the world. This season, Target is teaming up with this socially responsible company for the One for One, For All promotion.

 

Starting November 16th, for every Target+Tom’s Limited Edition gift you buy, these two companies will donate a pair of shoes, a cozy blanket or warm meals to those in need! 

And Target has more than just TOMS shoes! TOMS has beautifully crafted .021natural clothing collections for men, women and children as well rich and earthy home accessories. You can view their entire Target collection here.

So how are shoes changing the world one pair at a time?

In 2006, company founder, Blake Mycoskie was traveling in Argentina and found that the children in a local village had no shoes. Wanting to help, he created TOMS and promised that they would match every pair of shoes purchased with a pair fo new shoes given to a child in need. One for One.

.025Blake believes that we are all responsible for each other: “I was so overwhelmed by the spirit of the South American people, especially those who had so little, and I was instantly struck with the desire — the responsibility — to do more.” With that ethos as its mission statement, TOMS Shoes has given 10 million pairs of shoes to children in need. Along with this extraordinary feat, this company with a heart has provided prescription glasses and sight-saving surgery in 10 countries around the world.

Remember, for each TOMS product you purchase at a Canadian Target store .026from November 16, 2014 through March 12, 2015, TOMS and Target will donate the monetary equivalent of a blanket, a pair of shoes or a week’s worth of meals to Canadian giving partners including the Canadian Red Cross and Food Banks Canada. These vital charities will oversee the efforts to get your donations to those in need.

So with the season of sharing, caring and family soon upon us, partner with Target and Toms to bring a small but significant change to someone less fortunate.

Target REDCard®: Receive an Extra 5% Coupon (In Addition to Regular 5% off) if you Sign Up Before November 10

Why Don’t You Have a #TargetREDcard?

I asked this question to my friends, family, tweeps, blogger buds and almost anyone I have been speaking to over the last couple of weeks. The reason that I was asking everyone about the Target REDcard is that until recently even I  didn’t have one.

redcard-anthem

I like to think of myself as a smart shopper. I love to get a deal or discount on almost everything I can. Since I am this way I didn’t understand why I hadn’t made the move to get a card. I have given up savings of 5% on almost every shopping trip that I have taken since the first Target Store opened in March 2013.  I attended the opening!!!!!!!!!!!!!

So for the last 18 months Target Canada would have given me 5% savings on almost every purchase I made. And yes savings on each visit. That’s 18 months of savings I have been missing out on, crazy!

The savings happen EVERY time you use your Target Debit/Credit Card. It happens that same day. No waiting for savings. You see the savings immediately, each and every time you shop at Target!

5% Savings on almost all Purchases over the last 18 months – DO THE MATH

If you shop at Target once a week that equals 52 shopping trips per year. That’s savings on each trip. Don’t make my mistake of waiting 18 months to get a REDCard, oh the savings I missed out on. You don’t have to miss out you can start saving now, the only decision you have to make is which of their two REDCards you should get.

Look at your average Target receipt and then calculate 5%,

IT ADDS UP!

Get a #TargetREDcard before November 10th and you will receive an additional 5% Coupon

If you don’t have a Target REDcard, now Target has given you  some extra incentive to get a card ASAP!

shoppinghappiness

We want to educate Canadian’s on the benefits of a REDcard. Our American friends are already aware of the benefits so we thought, as Target Fans on both sides of the border we would do our part! #TargetREDcard

Did you know that Target has two payment options that will take 5% off your bill every time you shop. Yes everytime you shop. It is an immediate savyings.

REDcard Debit Option

The first option is debit card option that will debit your existing  personal chequing account. This card can only be used in a Target store.

redcard-debit-card

REDcard Credit Option

The second is their Credit card option, which is the r you can use the Target RBC MasterCard, a MasterCard with no annual fee. You get you 5% off every Target purchase, as long as you’re using the Target MasterCard as your form of payment. It also provides .5% cash rewards on all purchases (outside of Target) as well as purchase security and extended warranty insurance.

redcard-mastercard

If you sign up for either the debit card or credit card  before before November 10, 2014, you will get a a one-time coupon for an extra 5% off any purchase. ( so it is  5% + 5% = 10%)

Open up a new REDcard before November 10, 2014 and you get an extra 5% off coupon with your card to use on a shopping trip at a Target Store. Be on your way to maximum savings and rewards with a Target REDCard!

Showing Friends How #ThankFALL I Am

With the coming of Fall, I wanted to plan one last outside barbeque with our friends before the weather gets to cold. I am thankful for my friends and wanted to show them how thankful I am for them! While we all love getting together for an afternoon of good conversation, grilling, and relaxing outside we usually all chip in with the cooking and cleaning. For my barbeque, I wanted to treat and pamper them with a good meal and an evening of conversation without them having to do anything!

The cool weather has been moving in fast, so I needed to get my barbeque plans in action! I wanted everything to be just right and done. Planning the menu and then a list of what is needed always makes it easier on me and saves time. For whatever is needed, I can pick it up all at once and know I have everything covered. I hate being in the middle of cooking and realizing I don’t have everything I need!

I planned out my menu – everything from appetizers to munch on before the meal, meat, side dishes and drinks. As I made out the menu, I wrote down exactly what I was going to need to purchase for each thing. I also checked to see if I needed any condiments such as ketchup, mustard, etc. We were also running low on sturdy paper plates, so those went on the list as well as plastic utensils and napkins. No one wants a stack of dishes to tackle after the barbeque!

I also remembered the last time we got together, our friends had mentioned that playing horseshoes sounded like fun. Well, what better time to surprise them and give it a try than in the nice cool air! So, I added a horseshoe game to my shopping list. I headed to Target  with my list of grocery items, paper goods and my horseshoe game. This was going to be so much fun!

2014-10-17_14-52-20

My shopping trip went smooth as silk! I found everything I needed on my list. I even found some cute little table decorations to go on our picnic table! Everything was ready and my excitement was building! Friends provide us with so much, from supporting us in the bad times to celebrating with us in the good times. I am thankful for my friends and I couldn’t wait to show them with a fun filled day of grilling, conversation and playing horseshoes!
