Introducing … the Sunday Blue Plate Special

This week I’m introducing a new feature on my blog: the Sunday Blue Plate Special.

The Blue Plate Special will be a weekly special offer in one of my online stores, posted on Sundays here on my blog, and no place else!

The special might be a BOGO (“Buy One Get One free”) offer, or a percentage discount, or free shipping, or a complete giveaway freebie!

Today’s Blue Plate Special:

Bonanzle BOGO on Belize Beer Coasters!

I was thinking that a beer-themed special would be appropriate, what with St. Patrick’s day coming up, doncha know.

bonanzleSo, to kick off my new Bonanzle store, I’m offering to send you one FREE set of my highly collectible Belize Beer Coasters with EVERY set you purchase from me on Bonanzle!

About These Belize Beer Coasters

These are the official Belikin Beer coasters (or beer “mats”, if you prefer), from the limited editions printed by the Belize Brewing Company, headquartered in Ladyville, Belize, Central America.

Belikin2006Since 2006, all the beer coasters printed by Belikin display the main structure at the Maya ruin site of Altun Ha.

The Altun Ha pyramid is the official symbol of Belikin Beer, and is printed on each bottle's label.

Each year, Belize Brewing selects 12 of the prettiest girls in Belize to feature on its calendar. The photos are shot in the most beautiful locations the country has to offer.

The calendar girls' pictures are used for promotional posters and billboards for one year only; then a new group is selected. And, before 2006, they were also featured on the coasters … but no longer.

So these Belikin Calendar Girl sets I’ve got, dating back to 2003, are really, really collectible. As far as I know, I’ve got the biggest – and the last – collection of these discontinued designs in the world!

How this Blue Plate Special Works

  1. This Sunday Blue Plate Special begins at noon MST, Sunday March 15, and ends at midnight, Tuesday March 17, 2009.
  2. Between now and Tuesday, purchase one or more – as many as you like, no limit! – sets of the Belize beer coasters in my Bonanzle Store.
  3. Enter the magic wordBelizeBOGO” in your note to seller (me).

Cool, eh?

Enjoy the special, and have a Happy St. Paddy’s Day!
