Despite being a long time customer, the last time I set foot into a Comcast store it was a glorified service center. There was a long line and we moved at a medium pace to pay bills, swap equipment, and sign up or add services. I can’t remember when exactly that was, but it’s been at least 5-6 years.

I am pleased to say that Xfinity Stores are no longer a marginally faster DMV. The new Xfinity Stores are bright, cheerful, roomy, and full of phones, security systems, voice activated remotes, and other equipment you can play with and check out. And, of course, you can still go to pay bills, get customer service, swap equipment, and sign up for their services.

I got to experience all this first hand when I attended the San Francisco Xfinity Store located at 2186 Geary Blvd. San Francisco, CA 94115 for their Lunar New Year celebration. The store was decorated with Chinese New Year decorations and they even had authentic Asian snacks! It brought me back to when I was a kid and ate the sugared bean candies and drank the Vita drinks. They even had the pineapple bun pastries.

There was a face-painting station and an activities station to occupy your kids while you browsed the store. They had a raffle for their swag (I won a voice controlled remote!!) and while I was there, some new customers won fancy speakers and a waterproof speaker. I made sure to enter to win a TV while I was there, too.

Comcast Xfinity Swag

Comcast Xfinity Swag – my kids were most excited about the fidget spinners. I somehow found one in the washing machine the other day.

For my readers who are interested in adding Chinese programming to their cable channels, Comcast is currently running a promotion until February 28, 2018 where you can add their Mandarin Entertainment Dragon Package for $5/month for 12 months. Both current and new customers can participate in this promotion as long as you sign up for Xfinity Double or Triple Play. We’re currently Triple Play subscribers and I am probably going to sign up for it myself.

Also, until February 28, 2018, Xfinity On Demand is offering special Asian American Film and TV programming. There are movies celebrating Asian American heritage as well as popular Asian music on Music Choice from artists like Jay Park and BTS. (My children are especially obsessed with BTS.)

Anyhow, whether it’s been awhile or you have never gone to your local Xfinity Store, if you’re in the San Jose area February 24 from 2-4 p.m, you should swing by and check out the Lunar New Year celebration at the San Jose Brokaw Xfinity Store at 1068 E Brokaw Rd Suite 50, San Jose, CA 95131.

I’m bringing the Mandarin Mama kiddos for face painting, crafts, and lots and lots of juice. As you can see from the pictures below, my kids love art and were so happy about the dragon face mask crafts I took home from the event. It’s a tossup between the fidget spinners and the dragon masks that have brought them the most excitement. To be that easily pleased, am I right?

If you missed my Facebook Live when I was at the actual event, I’ve posted it below for your convenience. I’ll let you know if the San Jose store has a similar layout.
