Single? There's a holiday for you too!

Did you know that apparently "Single's Awareness Day" is an actual holiday the day AFTER Valentine's Day? Hey, couples get a day, so why can't single people? Most likely you are ecstatic because your wallet is fatter, and you can watch those weird reality shows without judgement - or maybe you are just holding out for Leonardo DiCaprio to realize you're his soulmate (like me). Either way, we think you'll enjoy these suggestions to pamper yourself and enjoy the single life.

Spa day anyone? Everyone needs a massage, don't even try to deny it! We have a few spa specials all over the valley, so take your pick! Our True Rest Float Spa gift card gets you one relaxing flotation therapy session for half the retail price. Check out their website to see what a session entails. 

Dedicated to singles is an activity program called Adventures 2000. Don't roll your eyes yet - it's not a dating service! Wine tasting, hiking, concerts, sporting events - pretty much anything, and you have a ton of potential new friends or even special someone, if you're into that kinda thing. Best of all, they're offering a free one month membership to Employee Network members. Talk about no commitment! Pun intended.

Adventures 2000 March Event Calendar

If you want to get away for a bit, Best Singles Travel is a similar service, but offers bigger products such as cruises or international vacation packages. Or maybe just try them out on a weekend trip - either way, go have some fun relaxing, doing some pre-planned stuff, and meet some new friends!

Valentine's Day Ideas & Specials!

Ah, Valentine's Day. Or as some people like to call it, Singles Awareness Day. I love Valentine's Day because of the crazy amount of chocolate in the stores. Truffles, caramels, assorted to my heart's desire. The way to my heart is definitely through chocolate. Anyone else agree?

I'm actually hoping for some chocolate dipped fruit because somehow I can convince myself it's healthier. Hey, fruit is good for you! Right? It's just a little chocolate... If your significant other enjoys sweets as much as I do, Shari's Berries has a huge amount of delicious fruit and baked goods that are discounted. Check them out and try not to buy them all - I'm struggling!

I've heard that SOME people in the world don't like chocolate. If your valentine happens to fall into this category, flowers are the obvious other classic Valentine's Day gift. A discount we have going this week for From You Flowers - 50% off Valentine's Day roses! You know, in case you haven't gotten them yet... don't worry, we won't tell on you! If she doesn't like roses, you can still get 25% off other gifts. Check out our website for the discount code.

Castles N Coasters in Phoenix, Arizona
Can't think of anything to do? Castles N Coasters would be an awesome date. Enter to win 2 VIP tickets, along with $20 worth of Fun Cards on our website. Drawing is February 11th, so if you don't win, you still have time to plan other fun activities! Completely free to enter, you just have to be a member of the Employee Network. If you don't win and still want to go, you can purchase tickets for 25% off a VIP pass, which is unlimited rides and 18 holes of mini-golf.

Another classic move - movie night! We have discounts for AMC Theaters that are valid for any date and time, and popcorn and drink vouchers. Because you shouldn't have to pay $6 for a tiny soda! You'll thank us later.

Sports fans? The San Antonio Spurs vs Phoenix Suns game is February 21st. If you get the tickets ahead of time, you can totally surprise him or her on Valentine's Day with the tickets, which are TWO FOR ONE! Get them fast, though - because we only have TWO tickets left!

Some other ideas: A "stay-cation" at a local hotel or resort or visit the Arizona Renaissance Festival. And of course - discounts are available for these services too!

Hope you all have a fabulous Valentine's Day!

2014 - A year of change for The Employee Network

Updating you on our company since our last post in 2011 (wow!), the Employee Network has continued to grow, offering more discounts to even more companies! This week we hired our newest employee, Marissa - who's title is yet to be determined - and we have re-vamped our social media sites and decided to give our blog a new look too! What do you think?

We also re-did our website and are currently still tweaking it to make it represent us and our partners in the best way possible. To the left is a screenshot of our new Twitter page, so FOLLOW us on there and LIKE our Facebook to get updates about exclusive offers and contests for our amazing Employee Network customers! 

Event season is almost here!!! Our first event is a couple weeks away at Arizona State University, where there will be a BBQ. Exciting! Who doesn't love BBQ? Hopefully this Polar Vortex weather is all done and we can be warm again, even though here in Arizona we have it pretty easy... 

We have a ton of events this year, as usual, so be sure to check here to see if your company is part of our 2014 Road Show calendar... if not, you should be! Maybe another BBQ is in order? Yeah, we hope so, too. 

For anyone who was following our blog before, just know more entertaining posts will be coming on a regular basis, with features on some of our corporate partners, multiple contributors, and more cool stuff! We just want to say thanks to all of our customers and followers, we appreciate you more than you know, and we look forward to updating you on many awesome things to come for our company and customers. 

- Marissa
