The Name Game Discount - Tuesday August 16th
Posted on August 16, 2016 Posted in Deal of the Day

Today is Tuesday August 16th 2016 and ALB Tech will be open at both locations from 11am to 7pm. The deal of the day today is the Name Game Discount. You remember the name game, right? Even if you don’t, we will explain how to play the name game shortly. In the meantime, lets talk about the deal of the day. It’s an 18% discount off any in store repair service and all you have to do is play the name game with your name while in the store. Yep. Aloud. In front of us. What the heck is this name game? Here’s Wikipedia’s take on it

“‘The Name Game’ is an American pop song written and performed by Shirley Ellis[1] as a rhyming game that creates variations on a person’s name.

Using the name Katie as an example, the song follows this pattern:

Katie, Katie, bo-batie,
Banana-fana fo-fatie

A verse can be created for any name, with X as the name and Y as the name without the first consonant sound (if it begins with a consonant), as follows:

(X), (X), bo-b (Y)
Banana-fana fo-f (Y)
Mee-my-mo-m (Y)

And if the name starts with a bf, or m, that sound simply is not repeated. For example: Billy becomes “Billy Billy bo-illy“; Fred becomes “banana fana fo-red“; Marsha becomes “Mee-my ‘mo-arsha’ .

Thanks for that information Wikipedia, always there to lend a helping hand. Lets put that information into practice a bit, shall we?

For Adam, it would be:

Adam, Adam, bo-badam,

or Jamie would be:

Jamie, Jamie, bo-bamie,

You get the picture, right? When you come into either ALB Tech repair shop today and we ask for your name, jump into the name game that you have prepared! That’s right, run through the name game with YOUR first name and save 18% off your repair service total. It’s a deal and it’s fun. Try it out and save some green. Thanks for taking the time to read this whole post – we look forward to fixing your broken tech stuff soon!
