I just love shopping in Egypt!
There is a blessing for my shopping-challenged heart here in Egypt that erases all the heart attack symptoms that arise whenever I find I need to go out shopping for something. I just sit down and shop for it online. It’s awesome. My blender just broke and I never broke a sweat. I just let somebody else figure out where the best priced blender is hiding in the midst of the busy market-place. I just type in souq.com!
Then some nice person drives all the way from Cairo to my front door, just to see me smile when they deliver it like a birthday present! And they wait patiently for the payment, right there at my door, too – no problem!
I guess you’d like shopping in Egypt, too, now that you know what I mean! Souq.com is my favorite online shopping site. It makes me feel far, far removed from the busy city. And they really did the smartest thing by calling their sale “white friday” – ahhhh comfortable connotations, a nice clean white shopping experience… heavy sigh of relief, peace descends on my soul, yes, let’s go shopping at souq.com where everything is nice and clean, signs are clearly marked, and prices are not “suggestions.”
Everyone who made a purchase at souq.com during that brilliant white friday sale received a very special thank you, too. I just found out in an email that souq.com teamed up with icflix.com, and is offering 3 months of free premium movie streaming to everyone who bought something during their sale! Wow, that’s awesome – icflix.com is the perfect online movie and tv show streaming website around. They have all the latest Hollywood, Bollywood, and Jazwood (arab movies) all lined up ready to play. They even offer the movies in English, French and Arabic, and with subtitles, too. See, here’s the flyer that came in my email:
I’m excited about icflix.com because Tv is a global pain in the butt. Even with a satellite dish on our roof, I’m not impressed with the idea of watching somebody else’s program lineup. I love choosing what I want to watch, whenever I am free to sit down and enjoy it. Movie streaming is definitely the way to watch tv and movies. And icflix has the variety I want, because I love Hollywood quality movies most of the time, but I also love Arabic and Bollywood flicks with English subtitles!
So in my email offering me my free 3 month premium movie subscription with icflix.com, they say I can share my activation code with anybody I like, and they can have a free 3 month subscription, too. The activation code is ICFLIXSOUQ – they said just enter that code when you sign up.
So I tried it out, first, to make sure it was for real. They say to go to icflix.com and sign up for a free account. Or go to the iTunes store or to Google Play, for mobile icflix apps. I’m on a samsung galaxy tab2, so I went to the google play store and found it here. This is a screenshot of the free icflix app in google play:
I am not a very trusting soul, so I clicked on the Read More link, to make sure that icflix is really all that. It sounded great, lots of free content, along with premium choices, too, but I was nervous about sharing it, if it wasn’t really true or they were hiding some details in the fine print. Here’s a screen cap of the details:
I decided it looked good, so I installed it. I forgot to sign up with the ICFLIXSOUQ activation code, though, because I let it sign me up using my facebook account. But even that was covered in the email, they said even if you already have an account with icflix.com, just go to My Subscription in the menu and enter the ICFLIXSOUQ code there to activate the free three months of premium service.
So that’s what I did after it signed me up using my fb account. No hidden requests for a credit card, no surprises, just enter the code and voila’ – three free months of great movies! (Here’s a screencap:)
I hunted for a movie, and started watching The Eagle – I’m a sucker for Roman Gladiators and hunky warrior types of every nationality! I put it on pause so I could write this post and share it with you all – it’s a great deal!
I hope you’ll check it out! Free movies for three months are waiting for you! Just sign up with icflix.com and activate your subscription by useing the code ICFLIXSOUQ!
