Thanks for your vouching herenow. Let us know how this new "outlets town" fare.
DanDare, I'm just a thrifty, keen shopper whose initial urge upon discovering tidbits on bargain opportunities around town is to share them with the expat community here.
Call it my intrinsic camaraderie among foreigners residing in Kunming. With added propensity to beating the locals at their own retail game, despite their upper hand in language.
Almost all local Kunminger I encounter are incognizant of grand opening or anniversary sales events scattered in their own backyard. For me it's like an Easter egg hunt.
Most locals I come across are either unknowing of these hidden eggs, or just don't mind being the overpaying consumers who appear to have money to burn.
However, for more frugal expats who lack the wherewithal yet limited in the shopping avenues due to language proficiency disadvantages, and to some extent even unfairly duped, my satisfaction comes when that gap is bridged.
I am a firm believer of penny saved is a penny earned, be it buying a croissant or a condo.
Other avenues of 92.8 for 200yuan pre-purchases were available on Aegean's WeChat official account (not sure if still available). As well as China Merchants Bank app (or 掌上生活 app) for similar 50%-off dining vouchers at Aegean tomorrow.
So for 200rmb kicks at WeiPinHui, you only pay $92.8. Quite the bargain worth checking out if you're a bargain hunter like myself.
