Shop Like a Kuripot

It was one of those random text messages that popped out of my inbox. It said:

Congratulations! You have successfully qualified for a complimentary Mall Gift Voucher. Thank you for using your Emirates NBD Debit Card for your spends. Your Mall Gift Voucher is valid for 5 months.

My bank has always been generous – I remember getting a AED 500 dinner voucher at a fancy hotel few years ago – and now I got a shopping voucher at a popular mall chain. What a lovely surprise.

I did not know what to do with it. At first, I thought I would wait until November so I can buy Rod something nice for his birthday, or maybe wait until I feel the urge to buy new gym clothes. The voucher can be used for shopping, dining and entertainment. I kept it in my wallet for weeks before I felt the urge to visit the stores.

And there it was – a big SALE sign at Promod, one of my favourite stores – and I knew I had to get me something nice. I bought a dress, top and a pair of shorts using my voucher.

I loved my top so much that I used it on my birthday dinner date. I am saving my dress and shorts for next summer’s travel to a humid city.

It is one of those days when a kuripot like me felt like I hit the jackpot.

Freebies? Yes, please!

This made me think – what is the point of having too many options when I end up wearing the same items over and over?

If you haven’t invested in the stock market yet, but are planning to, here are a few things you need to consider before doing so.
