Do You Jump on Last-Minute Appointment Offers?

I can't think of a salon or spa owner around who actually enjoys having open slots in the daily appointment booklet. No appointments, no money coming in. That's where technology comes into play, as more and more salons send email or text blasts announcing vacancies in the books.

Every few days or so, I get an email from an out-of-town salon that I used to frequent back in the day. While I am no longer a client, if I still lived nearby, no doubt I'd take them up on their offer every now and then. How about you? Do you get last-minute requests in your inbox, and if so, do you partake, or do the messages get a prompt click to the trash?

I totally take advantage of these! The Aveda salon I go to offers 20% off on their last minute appointments, and this has allowed me to be a stylin' recessionista and continue going there. Otherwise, I couldn't afford it.

Yes, Chouette4u — Sometimes they do offer discounted rates on the email.

i've never heard of this, and my various "places" don't do this, but i'd totally take a last minute appointment if it fit my schedule. i tend to book my nails, hair, waxing, massages etc. in places either near my work or my home so it would be convenient for me.

I consider it spamming.

No, unfortunately my schedule doesn't usually allow that sort of flexibility.
