Smart Save Days Out ~I’m Sold

by Jessica on February 13, 2012

I think the inventor of email is one of my favorite people on earth.  I just can’t help but get that slight “you’ve got mail” tingle when I open my inbox and see a flag for new messages.  There is type of email that I dread though, and it usually bears some sort of title involving advertising opportunity.  Often they (whoever they is) try to put a creative spin on it, but it all boils down to the same bottom line; we want you to help us sell our product.

The problem with this is that most of these advertising opportunities don’t know anything about my blog and their product isn’t a good match for my goals or my readers.   Yes, I am talking to you makers of adult diapers.  My readers and I have no need for your product…yet!  Let’s circle back around* in about 30 years.

*circle back around: industry jargon for emailing you again to badger you about helping us sell our product

So, when I received an email from Smart Save Days Out, I was skeptical.  As I began to research the product, I was not only convinced that it was a product that I would use and would happily endorse; I was disappointed that I did not know about it sooner so that I could use it myself.

Smart Save Days Out is a savings program based in the UK that offers discount vouchers for admission to popular attractions around London.  A list of participating locations are available on the website and it is as choosing where you want to go and saving money.

  1. There is no risk or registration.  Unlike other savings programs that require an initial fee, Smart Save is completely free to use and requires no pre registration.  Simply print the voucher and save 20% at the participating attractions.
  2. It is easy to use.  You can print the voucher and use it at the ticket counter, or even show the voucher on your mobile phone and receive the same discount.   Hotels also offer smart save maps which include all the voucher codes for attractions and restaurants.
  3. Savings for up to six people.  With more than the typical 2.3 kids, we often miss out on deals and packages.  Smart Save Days Out offers savings for up to six people-a perfect savings for our family.
  4. Benefits are easy to calculate using the website.  No guessing at the ticket counter.  No need for advanced math while on vacation.  Just plug your ticket needs into the website and see your savings.
  5. It shows me places I’ve never heard of, but want to see.  The top attractions are easy to find in any guidebook, but the off the path attractions are often our favorite stops.   Smart Save gives me a list of not only well known attractions, but hidden gems to enjoy

Wow Kew Gardens and St. Pauls is on the list! That is awesome. We are headed back to London this fall and I need to save every penny I can. Thank you thank you for paying attention to this email from an advertiser. I know it can get overwhelming when you are inundated with products that have to relevance to your family. But this one sure was a winner!
