Wellness Week takes place March 11-17, 2013. This year, you buy one SpaFinder gift card for $25 and get another $25 card free. The Wellness Week Bonus Card can be redeemed at any of the 22,000 wellness businesses globally that accept SpaFinder Wellness Gift Cards, including Bliss, Curves, Equinox, Red Door Spas, and The Woodhouse Day Spas. The special Bonus Card offer is available one per customer. It must be used by March 17, 2013.
In previous years, about 1,000 participating spas and wellness businesses offered a variety of $50 or 50%-off spa treatments or wellness services. "The reason we went to this new model was to expand the offering," says Pete Ellis,Chairman/CEO SpaFinder Wellness. "We take the financial hit" to encourage people to take a wellness initiative.
Some spas and wellness businesses have created their own events and special deals to coincide with Wellness Week. Curves, for instance, is offering a free week of membership.
To find the deals you enter your zipcode on the Wellness Week page. You need to dig, and in some cases, there may not be any in your area. If you're in a metro area like NYC, the chances for deals are higher.
Wellness Week also encourages people to express their commitment to health by taking the Wellness Week Pledge seven simple steps toward a happier and healthier life. A panel of experts offers advice to help you take the pledge.
