Need to create that website for that friend of yours? You know, the one about their cat? Squarespace has redone their interface and it’s (supposedly) more intuitive and easier to use. Now that friend can update it on their own anytime they want. Check out the video above and then some of the templates.
So it was time for me to replace the back door on my home. I love Home Depot and truly appreciate the advice their department Masters are willing to deal out. So I went looking for my door but they didn’t have exactly what I wanted so I sat down with a gentleman and went through the process of getting a quote on a special order door. Super helpful and very friendly, but the price was TWICE what a very similar door in-store cost. I asked him to print out the quote for me so I could look it over and think about it. He asked me for some personal info and told me he would make a followup call within a week.
He did just that. Curtious and kind, he called me up to see if I was still interested in ordering that door. To sweeten the deal, he offered me 10% off the quote. That amounts to $50 OFF! Which is a fair amount of change.
Lesson of the day. If you HAVE to special order something from Home Depot and can spare a week before the order get’s placed, you might be able to save yourself 10% by giving them your info and waiting a week. If they don’t offer you the deal, suggest it yourself.
