Shop the world with MasterCard

Now I know you ladies don’t need another excuse to shop but this one is just too good not to share…. You see the fine folks over at MasterCard have recently collaborated with the ecommerce experts at Borderfree to bring South African online shoppers a fabulous festive gift – starting now and going through until 31 December 2013, local MasterCard cardholders will enjoy exclusive offers such as free and discounted shipping and special weekly discounts from popular U.S. brands including Bloomingdale’s, Neiman Marcus, True Religion Jeans, Gilt, Intermix, Skin Store, Chefs Catalog & Online Shoes (and many more online retailers which you can see here)

What this means is that even local MasterCard cardholders can take advantage of Black Friday – a day of super sales in the US which is taking place on Friday 29 November this year. You will also be able to shop seasonal sales in the US with free or discounted shipping AND “spot sales” during the promotional period. To take advantage of these and other online promotions available at the retailers mentioned above simply enter the special code MCSHOP at checkout when you pay with your MasterCard Debit or Credit card! Now shopping online at international shops is super easy, convenient and affordable! What makes it even easier as that many of the prices are listed in ZAR instead of US $ so you know exactly what you are paying!

After my recent wardrobe sort out I’m definitely in the market for a few new quality items myself – things on my list include a pair of good quality skinny jeans (that make me look 5kg’s lighter), a leather biker jacket, cashmere v-neck jerseys and a few new tops and blouses with a bit of interest. Of course accessories are also always on my list – a black leather handbag, scarves, new sunnies, always earrings and as summer is around the corner I’m on the hunt for a pretty full piece costume!!

Here are a few of my fave finds

See what I mean? So much choice – and this is just the tip of iceberg! I’ll definitely be popping back to take a look through these sites again but this time with the view to looking out for something pretty to wear to Christmas Eve dinner…. or to give you some ideas for you on what to wear for your year-end function or New Year’s Eve party perhaps? What’s great about shopping this way is that you’re almost guaranteed that your outfit will be unique and you won’t be wearing the exact same thing as every other girl in the room 😉

Go on, shop the world with MasterCard you know you want to!
