Jasmere Review & Giveaway

A few months ago, I was asked to take $20 and spend it on a jasmere deal. I was assured that $20 would go a long way with jasmere, but I’ll admit, I was a bit skeptical. These days, $20 doesn’t go far at all! But I was wrong . . .

Here’s how jasmere gets unbelievable bargains for a song . . . jasmere seeks out lesser-known specialty retailers that deserve national attention. Their team of New York, Los Angeles and Washington, DC- based shopaholics personally test every featured product, using jasmere’s negotiating power to offer you an exclusive discount. But don’t let the low prices fool you! Every merchant featured on jasmere meets high standards of quality. Just because you’ve never heard of some of these online retailers, don’t think that their products and services aren’t some of the best out there. jasmere guarantees satisfaction with their featured deals.

Let me tell you about a few of the things I’ve purchased using jasmere vouchers. . .

  • I bought these great silhouette charms from Bonbon Charms for $16 each. The voucher is worth $40. The charms are priced at $40 each, and I bought one with my granddaughter’s name on it and another with my grandson’s name. So I spent $32 to get $80 worth of jewelry–a savings of $38!
  • When I saw the jasmere from jasmere at only $16 each. I applied my two vouchers toward the purchase of this purse and got the bag for $32 (from my jasmere purchase) plus $20 of my own money. Bottom line–I got a $100 bag for $52. I carried it along to a community theatre outing this weekend, and everyone who saw it wanted to know where I got that “darling purse.”
  • I bought five $40 vouchers for $17 each (total of $85) vouchers for some of the most beautiful jewelry I’ve ever seen at Jococo Jewelry. I haven’t used these vouchers yet, but I’ve got my eye on several things, like these beautiful Positano Earrings priced at $80. When I purchase these, I will have spent $34 for an $80 pair of earrings.

I like lots of the other collective buying sites like Groupon and Eversave, but of all the ones I’ve tried, I prefer jasmere, and here’s why:

  • jasmere deals are always online deals only, which means that anybody can take advantage of the deal regardless of where they live. With Groupon, the you have to search out an online deal if Groupon isn’t in your city of residence.
  • Like jasmere, Eversave has online deals, but Eversave deals are for typically for things that I wouldn’t buy for myself. Don’t get me wrong . . . I’ve bought Eversave deals that I’ve used to help me market my blog (fancy fortune cookies) and to purchase edible gifts for someone else. Thus far, I haven’t treated myself with any of the Eversave deals. That’s not to say I won’t have an opportunity to do so, but so far, I’m finding it more about my giving to others (which I love to do) than about splurging on me. Don’t we all want an opportunity to splurge on ourselves at a great deal? jasmere allows me to do that AND buy gifts for others.
  • jasmere deals last for 24 hours only. I don’t want to wait several days to get a new deal if I don’t like the current one. I look forward to checking out the new deal each day at jasmere.
  • And here’s the greatest thing about jasmere to me–the deal may be introduced at a specific price, but as more people commit to buy, the price goes down! I love it when that happens! For example, when I bought my charms, the deal started out at $18, but by the end of the deal, the price had dropped to $16!

Today’s jasmere deal is a double feature: You can get tags, photo mats and lots of other goodies from Any Random Jane and/or Lunchbox Love by Say Please. Click here to find out all the details.
