Decode Van Heusen QR Code, and Get a FREE Wallet


It’s Father’s Day, and what a better way for Van Heusen (Ayala Center Cebu) to share the love by giving out FREE wallets. These 3-fold leather wallets could possibly be synthetic… But HEY, it’s FREE, and it’s Van Heusen! Now, that’s CLASSY.

All you have to do is to decode this QR code on the cashier’s table:

Not cool enough to have QR Code Scanner on your phone? If you’re on Android, download Barcode Scanner by ZXing Team, and scan the code above. You’ll get an awesome FREEBIE. Almost.

Of course, you need to be at the Van Heusen shop to claim your wallet. Last I checked, there were still 3 people (including me) who claimed the FREEBIE. This PROMO is good for TODAY only. So go, and claim yours NOW!

AND if you’re on a spending spree, you might also want to check out their polo shirts. Some of them have QR Codes too, like this one:

What will this get you? Why, a FREE Van Heusen undershirt. Cool.

Van Heusen is probably one of the first few establishments to use QR Codes as part of their Marketing strategies. Now, let’s see which other shops will follow suit. On a side note, Van Heusen gets minus points from me for NOT USING Foursquare. *grin*


Cebu StackOverflow Meetup on May 26 (Sat)


Last 28 April 2012 (Sat), StackExchange members around the world celebrated the 2nd Annual StackOverflow Meetup Day.

Busy with preparations [meetups, trainings, etc] for Startup Weekend Cebu of course — with WaitKnowMore going home first place last May 13 (Sun)! Read the SunStar link for more details.

For this delayed Cebu StackOverflow Meetup, we will be doing a series tech talks with 6 speakers. If you have been to Startup Weekend Cebu last May 11 (Fri) – May 13 (Sun), most of their faces will be familiar to you! They have been there either as an organizer, a mentor, a participant, or goodness.. a winner! So, who will be speaking? These GEEKS:
