Happy Boss’s Day

Happy Boss's Day

Celebrating Boss’s Day!

It’s Boss’s Day on Monday, 16 October, which “has traditionally been a day for employees to thank their bosses for being kind and fair throughout the year. This day was created for the purpose of strengthening the bond between employer and employee.”

Do we ever stop to think about the burdens that our Boss’s bear, making sure the company runs smoothly and that their staff get salaries every month? Ever heard the saying “it’s lonely at the top”? While as employees we come to work, do our jobs and get paid, but all the admin that happens “behind the scenes” lands on the shoulders of our Bosses. So, take a moment on Monday to say thank you to your boss for all that they do.

If you are looking for gift ideas, CashBag put together a few ideas for you!

Happy Teachers Day!

Teachers Day 2017

Celebrating Teachers Day!

Why do we celebrate Teachers Day?

Well, not only do they educate our children but they mould and prepare them for the future.

Our kids spend on average half their day, 5 days a week, in the care of these trusted guardians.

So today, we show our appreciation and support for Teachers. And in doing so, hope to ensure that the needs of future generations will continue to be met.

If, by chance, you forgot to send a gift with your kids today for his/her teacher, don’t stress! CashBag is going to help save the day and earn you cash back!

First of all we suggest buying them a Voucher, because it will be delivered straight to their inbox, meaning no delivery delays!

CashBag has a multitude of offers that you can choose from. If you already know their favourite online store, simply login to your CashBag account and click “shop now” on the online store of your choice. You will then be redirected to the online store, where you can purchase a voucher. Enter the recipient’s email address i.e. the Teachers, and voilà, gift sorted! Your cash-back will be added to your CashBag account ready for the next CashBag PayDay.

Don’t have a CashBag account? Get it here for FREE -> www.cashbag.co.za

To all the Teachers, thank you for caring for our children and moulding the future of South Africa.

Happy Teaching 🙂

Happy Grandparents Day!

Grandparents Day

Celebrating Grandparents Day

Sunday, 1 October is Grandparents Day: “The purpose of this special day is to link the generations which, in our fast-paced society, is dying out.  Grandparents have so much to offer, so many skills to transfer, so much good advice to give.”

If you are looking for gift ideas, CashBag has put together a few ideas to help you out – and of course, earn cash back!

While we (the young’uns) prefer to have our memories stored digitally, our elders prefer the “old ways” of having their photographs printed. What better gift than a personalised photobook. All your family-memories for them to page through over and over again?

Flowers are always a great hit. Perhaps a bouquet made up of chocolate? Something different for those special matriarchs.

My Granny told me to always look after your feet – “they have to carry you around for a long time!” A good pair of supportive shoes is always a great gift for our elders.

So, whether it’s just a phone call to remind them how much you love and appreciate them, or a fun day out for some quality time – enjoy the time you have with them.

Happy Shopping 🙂

 

Happy Heritage Day!

Heritage Day 2017

Celebrating Heritage Day

“Heritage Day recognises different aspects of South African culture and encourages South Africans across the spectrum to celebrate their cultural heritage, the diversity of their beliefs and different traditions.”

With that in mind, be sure to celebrate your heritage on Sunday 24 September 2017.

Stand tall, stand proud.

From all of us at CashBag – Happy Heritage Day South Africa 🙂

 

Happy Secretary’s Day

Secretary's Day

CashBag has you covered this Secretary’s Day

Secretary’s Day, also known as Administrative Professionals’ Day, is a special day to say “Thank You”.

“Thank You” to those that keep your business running in the background, while you are free to do what you love, the way you love it.

Today recognizes the work of secretaries, administrative assistants, receptionists, and other administrative support professionals.

It seems like the support staff (and yes I am generalising here) are usually the unsung heroes of our companies. Their contributions are not always quantifiable. Unlike sales staff or operations, whose efforts can be measured. Support staff are a necessity to any business. Let’s be honest, how do you run a business without your administrative staff?

If you forgot to order flowers or chocolates or forgot to reserve a table for lunch to show your appreciation for your most trusted support staff – don’t worry CashBag has you covered :

Go to CashBag.co.za and either buy them a gift voucher from their favourite online store (it gets delivered to their inbox). Or sign them up for a monthly subscription; anything from food, wine, coffee to magazines!

Remember, with each purchase made through CashBag you are not just showing your appreciation but you earn cash back too!

To all our administrative support professionals, thank you for all your hard work!

Spring Fever Frenzy

Spring Fever Frenzy

CashBag welcomes the Spring Frenzy

Finally, Spring is here, the leaves are changing the sun is shining, now we just need to wait for the rains to round it all off nicely.

But today; open the windows, play the music too loud and celebrate a new season.

And while we are feeling the Spring fever frenzy, CashBag decided to look a little deeper as to what our customers would need the most with the arrival of this happy season:

1. The perfect Spring Clean:

I love a good solid spring cleaning! Curtains, carpets, cupboards etc. There is something cathartic about purging your home of “last season” items and home decor. Just make sure you donate your old stuff – we’re all about giving back.

2. New arrivals for Spring:

Now, if you are anything like me, you may go a little overboard on the clothing purge! This helps me feel guilt-free restocking my wardrobe. Especially because every morning I have the “nothing to wear” conundrum, plus I get to save money while shopping through CashBag. If you are a bit more conservative, spoil yourself with at least get one great item that makes you feel like it’s summer.

3. Protect the peepers

Nothing completes a summer outfit and makes you feel like one cool cat than a shiny new pair of sunnies! But remember to keep your eyes hydrated and irritation free – with the change of season comes allergies (it’s a small price to pay though). 🤧

4. Skin safety

This one is for everyone – fair or dark-skinned, male or female we all need to protect our skin from sun damage. Plus it helps to slow down the ageing process (you all know what I’m talking about). So stock up on the sunscreen, wear a funky hat and enjoy your summer days ahead!

Happy Spring-ing 🙂

February Feels with a CashBag PayDay

CashBag PayDay

Happy Valentines Day from CashBag

We made it through January! We stuck (somewhat) to our new year’s resolutions, we managed to pay our bills and buy our groceries and love our families and then like a ray of sunshine poking through a grey rainy morning it was February…and we breathed a sigh of relief.

There are two main things I love about February:

  1. Valentines Day

Personally, I love it! Yes, there are a lot of mixed opinions about this day, but for me, it’s a day that I can be unashamedly cheesy with my love! I can send my friends ‘annyonous’ flowers to brighten their day. I can spoil my family with surprise gifts because I know that even though they will protest, they secretly love the spoils! It’s so exciting waiting to see bae’s face when his gift arrives. It’s a day of love and I love it!

And while I’m dishing out all this love I always include myself, because we all need to be a little kinder to ourselves ❤️

  1. CashBag PayDay

All the cash back I earned over Black Friday, Cyber Monday and Christmas got paid out on 15 February – which felt like another Valentines Day gift from me to me…and the best bit? I did all my Love Day shopping through CashBag so my balance is looking pretty healthy in preparation for the next CashBag Pay Day!

And if that wasn’t reason enough to be feeling fantastic this February, CashBag just launched “Refer-a-Friend”. Which means I can earn even more cash back just by telling my friends my fabulous shopping secret!

So, as we head into magical March (yes, why not make it magical!) CashBag will continue to bring you great deals and help you fatten up those balances in time for the next CashBag Pay Day

Happy shopping 🙂

 

Cash Back Deals Available:
Netflorist – 10% cash back
Travelstart – R50 cash back
Unbreakable Man – 15% cash back
Madison – 5 cash back

The road to hell is paved with good intentions

We all have the best of intentions when January comes round; to get fit, to eat healthily, to save money, to be better people etc.

January is a hard month though. It’s hard to feel motivated when your bank balance is constantly reminding you of the holiday season overindulgence. When those 3 more kilograms to go to goal weight is now 7kg’s. So CashBag is going to help you get motivated to start those healthy New Year’s resolutions and help you save money!

Here are a few ideas to get you revved up and ready:

Make a schedule:

Preparation is the key to any health plan. Map out your week in terms of what you’re going to eat, when you are going to exercise, what time you’re going to wake up and go to bed etc. Plan your meals, shop and prepare your meals for the week ahead with these awesome meal planners.

Be stronger than your excuses:

We all talk ourselves out of doing the hard stuff, the waking up early to go to the gym or just this one cheat meal…but it’s the start of the downward spiral. Stick to your convictions. When you start to rationalise why it’s ok to skip a session or eat that chocolate, give yourself a shake and push on with your plan.

Get a new gadget:

Like an exercise tracker, daily step counter or a BMI scale that tracks your progress and helps keep you motivated. Once those kilos start coming off and those goals start being met, it’s easier to keep going.

Get a new outfit:

Feeling good and looking good go hand in hand, so get your sexy self into some fancy workout outfits. Whether you’re more of a one solid colour look or colourful patterns, there is something for everyone’s taste. Keep your feet firmly planted in some funky trainers to complete the look.

Remember it all starts with the first step…take it!
