If You Snooze, You Lose

by joeheg

About a month ago, I was in the middle of writing an article about a Starbucks offer. Here was the great title I came up with.

Starbucks: Get $10 When You Buy $10 E-Gift Card With Visa Checkout

There was just one problem. By the time I wrote the article and double checked the links before publishing it, the offer was gone.

This offer started on 8/14/17 and was supposed to last until 9/30/17 or until 225,000 people took advantage of the offer. By early on 8/16/17, the offer was finished.

That’s only two days!!!! In today’s world, that’s about all the time you have. Some offers don’t even last that long.

Whether it is a great airfare, cheap hotel room or a good offer for a gift card – you need to act right away. Those who hesitate are lost.

Have you missed out on a great offer because you didn’t act right away?
