Hey everyone! Sorry for the lack of posts, school has been taking up most of my time recently :(  Anyways, I went to Maido AGAIN on Black Friday! They didn’t have any deals, however customers who had accounts on FiveStars did receive quadruple points! If you didn’t know already, FiveStars is a customer loyalty program! At Maido, you earn 1 point for every $5 you spend. When you reach 20 points, they give you a $5 store credit! Well, since I got so many (21) pens, I might as well do a haul and review!
