958 589 5020 www.bahiadelaluna.com/
Many sanmiguelenses have enjoyed this fabulous rustic, tucked-away, beach-side resort with gourmet dining. VIP Club members are given consideration.
(Any business or individual can sponsor a VIP Club Newsflash – read intently by over 2000 local subscribers, 2000 pesos.)
Your Club all-of-a-sudden has a slew of pertinent information to share! So it might be best to spoon feed the membership for the time being. This flash will be the first of three VIP newsflashes that will be sent out in succession over the next three weeks.
Each forthcoming flash will be chock with information! Please make sure to open them as we enter the new year 2022!
We want to first address some VIP Club issues. Every member joining or rejoining receives a VIP Club Welcome email Your Club points out the few rules. One of our participating establishments has gotten a fed up with wisenheimers grumbling about not getting the discount when paying for entertainment cover charges. For 21 years entertainment cover charges have never been part of the discount. Stop it!
Many members are not aware of the over 100 local businesses that also offer strong discounts. “What else ya got?” is a section we will add on to flashes, some participating businesses widely known, others not often on the radar.
Your Club wishes all a very Merry Christmas and Season’s Greetings. Let’s get rockin’!
Expiration dates on members’ cards? Just turn your VIP Club Card over and look at the bottom rear.
Das right, Boss, The Spanish word, Caducidad means “expires.”
In our last flash, Your Club offered a handsome Madam Loo Chinese Astrology poster if any member could guess how many email flashes would be opened by subscribers in the first 24-hours. All flashes from our Mailchimp platform go out at 5:00 a.m. As a clue we send out 2000 and between 700 and 1000 are usually opened in that time frame.
Member, Kate Frank Cohen, came the closest with her guess of 985, with 964 opened in the first 24-hours. She won a Madam Loo poster (22″ X 29.5″) featuring her Chinese Astrology sign, The Rooster. Thanks to all who participated.
Let’s do it again! Win a poster related to your sign! Send in your guess to [email protected], by midnight December 20th. Madam Loo’s Chinese Astrology posters make for great gifts and sell for $800 pesos.
