Dear %%First Name%%,
With February 29, Leap Day, falling on a Friday it seemed like a great time to bring back Free Shipping Friday.
Here's the deal: Place an order today, Friday Feb. 29th and you can free shipping just by using Coupon Code fsf when you check out. That's all there is to it.
Oh, because we're basically nice guys and we realize that our customers are fallible, we'll actually give you the whole weekend to take advantage of Free Shipping Friday. Just place your order by Monday, March 3, use coupon code fsf and you're good to go.
Yes, I hear you asing: Free shipping is all well and good but what if my order already qualifies for free shipping because it's more than $65? Well, then we'll give you 10% off your order. All you have to do is use coupon code fsf10 and--bingo--we'll take 10% off your total order plus you'll still get free shipping.
So, that's it. If your order is less than $65 use Coupon Code fsf and you'll get free shipping.
If you're order is over $65 use Coupon Code fsf10 and you'll get free shipping plus 10% off.
Happy shopping and enjoy your Leap Day
