Would you believe me if I told you that it was possible to send your friend a gift just by sending a text?
I wouldn’t have believed me either but it’s true! Those clever people behind parcelgenie app have launched a new texting service to make parcelgenie accessible to a lot more people. If you don’t have a smart phone or if you do and don’t like to download apps this service is perfect for you.
Using the service could not be easier, just send a text to 07480357021 and tell them which gift you’d like to send. You don’t even need to know the recipients address, just their phone number. Sit back and Parcelgenie will do the rest.
I was invited to try this service out for myself, I sent a gift to my mother and my friend Katie. Both of my gifts were received the next day which is super speedy service and great for those forgotten last minute presents. The ordering process took less than 2 minutes, my recipients received a text immediately asking for their address and I got text confirmation that the item had been posted.
A week after trying the service for myself this popped through my letterbox:
The personalised note was lovely and everything was wrapped making it really feel like a thoughtful gift.
How adorable are the bumble bee chocolates! I loved receiving this gift and the big bonus for me was that it fit through my letterbox so no need to go to rearrange delivery if you are out.
First time users of the texting service will automatically get 50% off on their first go just visit parcelgenie for more information.
