Joe’s Crab Shack Partners with Autism Speaks

Hubby and I went to Joe’s Crab Shack last week. If you’ve ever been to Joe’s, you are familiar with various managers coming to the table either during or after the meal to see if everything went well, and to solicit feedback. Well, we had two different managers stop by, one during our meal, and one as we were chatting at the end of our luncheon.

Hubby being hubby had to give the guy a hard time, and Hubby of course asked for a coupon.

The manager was great, gave Hubby a coupon off our next visit and told us about an offer that Joe’s was starting April 1st with Austim Speaks. Joe’s was selling coupons for future meals, and the cost of these coupons would be donated to Autism Speaks. While the manager gave details, I wasn’t certain I had everything correct, so I contacted the PR firm for Joe’s Crab Shack for details. She got back to me yesterday, and these are the full details:

During this month guests will have the opportunity to donate to Autism Speaks while they dine at Joe’s Crab Shack and, in return, will receive valuable coupons for free food on their next visit.

For every $1 donation, guests receive a free kids meal entree; with a $5 donation, a free order of Crazy Good Crab Dip; and with a $10 donation, a free Classic Steampot. Guests can also visit the Joe’s Crab Shack website to donate electronically and download their coupons.

Coupons are redeemable May 1 – June 15, 2013.

IMO this is a great way to not only support a worthy cause, but eat at Joe’s Crab Shack for less. I bought mine yesterday, and these are the details and restrictions:

PRINT THIS COUPON TO REDEEM. Only valid with purchase of an adult entree. Not valid on To-Go or with any other offer or discount. One coupon per check. Tax and gratuity are not included. This coupon is non-exchangeable

Trouble in WalMart’s Paradise?

That's A Wrap!


Hubby sent me several articles last week that there may be trouble in WalMart’s Paradise. One article entitled Customers Flee Wal-Mart Empty Shelves for Target, Costco. The story states that WalMart has opened more stores in the last year (455 in total), but has less employees working now than it did before those stores opened (20,000 less). That means stock doesn’t hit the floor, lines are long, and the stores are disorganized. WalMart again took last place in the American Customer Satisfaction Index, the sixth year in a row it did so.

The second article is hilarious: Wal-Mart may get customers to deliver packages to online buyers. Instead of the WalMart to go model where UPS or FedEx delivers, WalMart thinks your friendly neighborhood meth-dealer should be able to deliver your Sudafed. I am sure it would make it intact to your house.

Adding five full-time employees to Wal-Mart’s (WMT) U.S. supercenters and discount stores would add about a half- percentage point to selling, general and administrative expenses, according to an analysis by Poonam Goyal, a Bloomberg Industries senior analyst based in Skillman, New Jersey. Assuming the workers earned the federal minimum wage and industry standards for health benefits, the added costs would amount to about $448 million a year, she said. In the year ended Jan. 31, Wal-Mart generated $17 billion in profit on revenue of $469.2 billion.

To me, this sounds like penny-wise and pound-foolish. But hey, it is WalMart, what do you expect?

Do you shop at WalMart? Have you noticed a lack of stock on the floor? Longer lines? Less help in the aisles? At what point will you cease to shop at WalMart?
