A few weeks ago, after getting the comic book commissioned and printed, I asked Tommie Kelly to design some Christmas cards for me. Then I wondered what should go in them. Ah yes, money.
So this is how the Christmas card looks. With an IP infringement nod to Bóthar.
And then I decided to get money printed. #mulleybucks to be precise. Here they are.
I sent the money out to a lot more people than the Christmas cards. Over 100 people got them I believe. But the money was created for another reason too. Ideally I wanted to see these Mulleybucks used to be able to cash them in on products and services that I offered as well as from a few other people too. So with that in mind, here are some discounts from myself and other people. A few more too are on the way:
Mulley Communications: I’ll give you 50 euros off my Cork or Dublin Social Media Evening Courses if you present one of the #mulleybucks to me.
Caricatures Ireland: Will give you 20% discount for $50 Mulleybucks
Sweet Dreams Ireland: 10% off their products if you present $50 Mulleybucks
Project Arts Centre: 2 for the price of 1 tickets to see any performance of Celebrity from 11 – 15 January. Regular tickets are €15. Quote mulleybucks to get the offer when booking on 01 8819 613. Bring them along on the night too 🙂
As I mentioned, more discounts from other companies are on the way.

Meant to say more than that… Was buying a Sweet Dreams mural for Leah’s bedroom, now I get 10%, if I can get my Mulleybucks back out of her purse. Leah thinks the cool purple notes are way better than real Euro notes.
[…] Damien’s sending out more Mulleybucks all the time, and more companies will be offering discounts with them in the next while. More details on discounts can be found on Damien’s blog. […]
Is this some sort of attempt to replace the Central Bank in the event of Eurozone collapse? 🙂
I have to say it really did make me smile, watching people tweet about their new #Mulleybucks in the post. What an interesting campaign – well done Damien.
What conversion rate are Revenue going to apply between #Mulleybucks and euro? I’m sure that these gifts will have tax implications somewhere along the line 😉
I will swap a Tom Dunne Nudie Pen for some Mulley Bucks. Want to send husband to social media course to aid my world domination campaign.
Yet another great idea. Fantastic thinking and lets hope these Mulleybucks flood the economy
I just renewed my .ie domain – any chance they’ll give a retrospective discount as a rebate? #chancinghisarm
Anyways, great idea to create the discounts – really liking it 🙂
1. Not happy that I didn’t receive any!
2. Have a cunning plan.
3. We’ll take €50 off a custom Facebook Landing Page
4. Sit on hard of Mulley bucks until the Euro collapses.
5. Become rich.
Manuel does not accept MulleyBucks…cash, preferably sterling, only….heh
