This giveaway has closed. Congratulations to the winner, Eve L.!
I can’t tell you how often I get pitches from PR people for things they claim will make my life easier. Usually it’s something that would make no discernable difference at all in the level of ease in my life. But when the folks behind Listen To Your Mother asked if I would give away a Fresh Direct gift certificate in conjunction with their show, I said of course! Fresh Direct has been making my life easier since 2003, and I support them wholeheartedly.
My life has been unusually busy lately. I was away for a week, and then I only had two days to catch up on a week’s worth of emails, clean my entire house, work a big fundraiser at the kids’ school, bake a birthday cake, and get ready for Fiona’s birthday party. And of course, having been out of town, we didn’t have the basics when we got home – no milk, eggs, etc. Thank goodness I was able to put in a quick Fresh Direct order for the very next morning, and get not only the groceries we needed, but the bulk of the food and drinks for the party, too. It saved me at least two hours at a time when I didn’t have two hours to spare.
I’m so thrilled that Fresh Direct was a major sponsor of Listen To Your Mother, because I know some of the people involved with the show (which was performed Sunday afternoon) and I know how hard they worked on it. I hope Fresh Direct was able to make their lives a little easier, too.
As a long-time Fresh Direct customer, I can personally attest to the quality of their food. And if something isn’t perfect, their excellent ratings system tells you, so that you can decide whether to buy it or not. Their customer service team is outstanding, taking care of any problems that may arise, usually within hours.
Fresh Direct delivers to NYC, and parts of Westchester, Connecticut, and New Jersey. In summer, they even deliver to The Hamptons. And the very best feature, something I’ve been taking advantage of since they introduced it, is the unlimited delivery pass. I pay one price – $99 – for a year of unlimited delivery. That has saved me between $200 and $300 every year off of their already low delivery charge!
Whether you’re already a customer, or want to try Fresh Direct out, you could use this great prize: a $50 gift certificate to Fresh Direct! To enter, just tell me what you don’t like about going to the grocery store. For me, it’s definitely having to carry heavy things into the house. No matter how many cases of pop I order, the Fresh Direct delivery guys carry them in to my kitchen with a smile. :-)
