It should really say, "Gymbuck blessing!"
I went on Facebook the other day to check on my Farmville, and I noticed that my friend Kelly's status said something like, "I'm giving away $150 worth of Gymbucks. Whoever messages me first will get it. They are only good till tomorrow."
If you have no idea what a Gymbuck is, it is kind of like a bonus when you spend so much at Gymboree. For every $50 you spend at the store, outlet, or online, during an earnings period, you get $25 worth of Gymbucks. Which means, during the redemption period, you can get $25 off of your $50 or more purchase! So, the more you spend, the more Gymbucks you get.
Anyway, I commented on her status right away and said, "ME!!" I even sent her a private message asking her if I was the first. I was stoked when she told me that I was!! I was like, "YES!!"
Friends, let me tell you. People SELL their Gymbucks on Ebay! That is how "valuable" they are! She was even thinking of doing that, but the redemption period ended the next day, so that is why she offered it up on Facebook.
It was perfect timing for me because my youngest daughter totally needed spring and summer clothes. I just went to Old Navy the other day and got her a couple of outfits, but they didn't really have anything that I liked. I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE Gymboree, but I have not been there in a long time. The quality there is like no other. It may be pricier than other places, but it's true when they say you get what you pay for.
So, I jumped online and started shopping!!! I was so excited to browse through their new lines! And let me tell you. I got a tremendous deal. I just have to share what I bought!
All the photos are from the Gymboree website.
Some items from the Glamour Safari line. I just love that scarf! And those hairclips are super cute!
More from the Flower Bazaar line. I just love the white belted dress! So clean & fresh. It's going to look so cute with the silver gem headband & sandals!These outfits were on sale. The green skirt is from the Fairy Fashionable line, the turtle top is from Tulip Garden line, and the pink outfit is from Popsicle Party line.
My grand total before the Gymbucks was $309.
BUT, minus the $150 Gymbucks, plus $5 shipping and $15 tax, my grand total for all of this was $179!
