Seasons Greetings

In this last newsletter for 2014, YEI has one more favour to ask! We have entered YEI into the 2014 SA Blog Awards, and need as many votes as possible in order to come into the first three places in the awards. Please take a minute of your time to vote for YEI! Please go to www.youve-earned-it.co.za and click on the red VOTE button on the right hand side of the homepage. All you need to do is to enter your email address to submit your vote. A confirmation email will be sent to your email address – you will be asked to click on a link to confirm your vote. It’s as easy as that! Thanks SO much!

2015 will be an exciting year for YEI and its readers. The YEI website is being revamped to enable full accessibility on iPads and mobile phones. Watch this space for new development and new products. More about this next year!

Correction: There was an error in the November e-Newsletter. We spoke about EFT’s being de-mystified – this should have read ETF’s being de-mystified. Our apologies for the “transpose” error!

YEI has steadily grown during 2014 with regard to readers, listings and advertisers. Our advertisers constantly bring you (the over-60s) great deals which can be viewed in the listings section of the YEI Discounts and Benefits Directory. We urge you to spread the YEI word to your friends, family and local businesses, so that they too can benefit from the great deals on YEI.

  • Friends and family can register for the monthly e-Newsletter at NO COST, and “like” YEI on Facebook.
  • Businesses who provide a pensioner discount can enlist via the FREE company listing option on YEI.

The team at YEI would like to take this opportunity of wishing you and your family a happy, peaceful and safe Festive Season. Whether you are staying at home or are travelling to see friends and family locally or abroad, we wish you fun and safe travels. We also wish you good health, happiness, prosperity and peace in 2015. We thank you for your valued support and look forward to growing YEI with you.

Until 2015.

Kind regards,
Marilyn and the YEI Team
