You know when you were younger, and you'd visit the fair or arcades with the silliest yet most entertaining games? My favorite was Donkey Kong and that racing game that acts as a stimulator to make it seem as though you're really inside of a tiny Japanese sports car going 200km an hour. You would play the games and collect tickets or coins that would shoot out of the machine if you won. Ecstatically you would count your tickets to see how many more you would need to take home the giant stuffed tiger, a sticky hand and some of those big dipper candies (you know with the powder and the stick, in cherry flavour, obviously). After eating all of your big dippers and pixie sticks in one sitting your mother would yell at you, but you would be on too much of a sugar high for it to phase you. Later, crashing in your bed you would some how not end up with type 2 diabetes and merely just a cavity or two on your back teeth.
In light of this recent flashback, I have discovered the adult version of collecting coins that can be redeemed for prizes; not giant tigers or big dippers, so so much better: designer clothes. Ifchic is a online retailer carrying only the most well curated designer clothes. Kind of like an arcade game, every day that you visit their online site from the 25th of the month to the 23rd of the next month, you are able to collect 6 coins a day (each coin equalling a dollar). On the 24th of the month you are able to spend all of the coins you've collected (which can equal $180) and put them towards any item on the site. I'd been wanting this pair of Etre Cecile denim for the longest time, and through saving my coins I was able to get them. What I have my eye on next are these heels...so amazing.
How does #IFCHIC24 work?
You visit their website as often as you like from the 25th until the 23rd of the next month and collect coins (by clicking on the coin that will pop up when reach the site). It’s possible to collect $6 in coins per day for a total of $180 per month, that you can use during the #IFCHIC24 shopping event.
How do you spend the coins?
The event lasts for 24 hours on the 24th of every month and you can spend the coins on anything on the website during this time with no minimum purchase. More FAQ on #IFCHIC24 here. Too good to be true? Definitely not – I’ve tried it myself!
