Parcel2Go is a top parcel delivery comparison site in the North West of England; they offer cheaper alternatives for posting a range of parcels. I first came across them last year via my Money Saving Expert email from Martin Lewis. They had a £10 off offer for new customers … AND WAIT FOR THIS … without any minimum spend! That’s a bbbaaaarrrrgain, won’t you say.
So when I came across their ‘Sent With Love’ campaign promoting ‘not-so-snail-mail’, I wanted to find out more. Communication via the net has dominated my interactions in recent years but snail mail remains very dear to me. We live in a world that makes it very easy to neglect quality contact with our nearest and dearest. In this atmosphere, Parcel2Go’s project to encourage British folks to get posting to loved ones abroad is a relationship kindler! Their survey of 750 people about their keeping in touch habits when it comes to family overseas was quite a revelation … unfortunately, not shocking.
Fancy this right, ONLY 7.6% of those surveyed bothered to send parcels to family abroad. I don’t know about you, but there’s part of me that thinks this is a real shame. Imagine all the laughter, delights, anticipation, and surprise elements of traditional mail that so many are missing out on. I’ve decided to make more effort with posting memories; I’m harnessing the potential of snail mail to enhance my interactions with family and friends.
You can join in too, and put more smiles on your loved ones faces.
“Opening an email from you will make them happy, but an unexpected gift sent the old-fashioned way will really make their day”, said Robert Mead, Parcel2Go’s Marketing Manager. You know what, I totally agree.
Parcel2Go is inviting people from the UK with loved ones overseas to contact them and “share their stories of how they know each other, what special tokens they would send abroad and why. The people with the most interesting and sentimental stories to share will be invited to take part in the ‘Sent With Love’ campaign.” Those selected “will be asked to send a special gift or token to their loved one abroad … through Parcel2Go.com, and to document a photo diary of the parcel’s journey”.
The winner of this judged competition will receive £30 off their delivery costs; this will be credited to their existing or new Parcel2Go PrePay account to help send gifts to loved ones abroad.
So, what would you like to send to loved ones abroad? Your children’s drawings, baby scan photo, pictures of special occasions, a card or letter? What would you write? Who would you send something to? I can’t wait to read about it.
So, get creative enter the competition.
With your £30 Parcel2Go free delivery credit, you can send parcels within the EU and beyond. Visit Parcel2Go to get an idea of what your package might cost to post, depending on its weight and size. I used my free ‘Sent With Love’ promotional code to send my 1kg-ish parcel to family across the pond via the UPS Express option; recommended for its top quality delivery. Look out for my review on this.
