Whenever I hear the postman pulling up my ears strain to hear that subtle ‘clank’ of the letterbox … I am not a patience person so whatever I’m doing will be put on hold and I’ll bound down the stairs like a puppy!
Now post times I’m pretty disappointed, letters from the bank, various flyers, dental reminders, post for the previous owners (still 2 years on!) BUT since I’ve joined Peer Index, the fantastic company that rewards those with online influence (of which, get me, I am one!) the post has bought a new level of excitement …
I’ve had a few rather fabulous ‘freebies’ in return for me blogging (ahem, must make more of an effort on that front!), tweeting and generally ‘spreading the word’ about the companies/brands/products that promoting. I’ve had MOO cards (which I adore), I’ve had some fun Cravendale Epic straws (that Max adores), I’ve had 10 free downloads from BlinkBox (which has allowed me to watch the latest chick flicks on my iPad which, in turn, has left the OH incredibly happy!) and this week I got a free pair of FitFlops (to help promote the amazing Walk In Her Shoes charity).
But there was one Peer Index that arrived in my post that blew me away. I’d signed up for a free limited edition signed poster from one of the David Baileys from the innovative Samsung marketing campaign, as part of the perk you also got entered into a draw to win one of the Samsung NX 100 cameras that they’ll all using the ad campaign. I received my poster and then didn’t think anymore of it … until the postman rang the doorbell two days later, I signed for an inconspicuous jiffy bag, opened it up and found this …
whoo hoo I won!
I don’t think I’ve ever felt such shock whilst opening a package (well, okay maybe the credit card statement after Christmas!) … but this was on a different level, a different emotion … I honestly can’t remember ever winning anything of value like this before.
It’s the perfect size for taking out on day-trips, better quality than my iPhone camera and allows me to leave my old Canon 30D at home! So this is another thank you to the amazing team at Peer Index, I shouted about this through the rooftops via Twitter at the time .. and now I’ve finally got around to writing my blog post.
