On Tuesday, March 16th, 2021, Fashion Nova sent a series of hilarious SMS messages to thousands of its US customers, encouraging them to spend their recently sent stimulus checks on a promo sale — deliberately created for the purposes of the stimulus checks.
The promo enables customers to purchase items from Fashion Nova stores at a discount of 80% (yes 80%) using the Code: SAVE80 and a link included in the SMS messages. According to the promo’s countdown timer on Fashion Nova’s website, the promo ends on Thursday, 18th March, 2021 at 11 AM ET — 2 days after its inception.
All this follows Congress’ passing of a $1.9T COVID Relief bill in March, which was done to help keep people, without jobs, afloat during the pandemic and to help get the economy running again. Although this bill ended up being passed in both the Congress and the Senate, not even a single Republican from either Congress or the Senate ended up voting for the bill, despite the overwhelming support by the public.
