hp presto mail GIVEAWAY



Today's giveaway comes from HP. Remember when I wrote about the incredible Presto printer that my husband and I got for his grandma's birthday {read here}? Well, they want to give one away...to one of you! I've got to tell you that this is fabulous. I can't say enough about how happy it's made my grandma (in-law).

Up for giveaway: one HP Printing Mailbox and three months of free service. {total value of $180!}

Just a recap to explain exactly what the Presto Mailbox is and how it works. Actually, maybe a picture would illustrate it better.


Step 1:
Email your friend/parent/grandparent to a Presto email address

Step 2:
Presto converts your email into a simple and perfect format (reducing picture size too!)

Step 3:
Your friend/parent/grandparent has their Presto printer hooked up at home and it prints your email right out for them to enjoy


A few of the perks we have noticed in our Presto use:
First, our grandparents know what we are up to on a daily and weekly basis without hearing about the past month in short details. They feel up to date and like they are "in the know."
Second, I found it beyond simple to set their account up. Everything is ready to go upon receiving the Presto box.
Third, there is NO SPAM. I love this detail. Only those that you "invite" are allowed to email the presto email address you set up for your loved one.
Fourth, it prints perfectly. Presto lets you know when you need a new ink cartridge, when your paper is running low and anything else you would need to know.

It's really that easy. I can't say it enough. And the benefits of giving our grandparents the "in" on our lives makes it even more worth it. Since they don't own a computer, I will oftentimes copy posts from my blog about our latest haps and how my daughter is doing. They always call to let us know they loved reading it!

The rules are a little different this time around. You simply need to link to this Presto giveaway on your own blog and leave a link to that post in the comments section here. If you don't have a blog, no worries. Simply tell us why you love Presto (and you're still eligible). note: Currently, the Presto Service is only available in the U.S., so the contest will be limited to people who will be giving the Presto Service and HP Printing Mailbox to a U.S. resident with U.S. phone number.

Hint! National Grandparents Day is September 7th. That is just around the corner. Presto is the perfect gift to keep them up to date on everything in your life. There is a current sale going on for $50 off the Presto Mailbox - info here. Now's the time to jump on it. {The Presto Service should be purchased along with the HP Printing Mailbox. Pricing for Service is $9.99 a month or $99 a year.}

  7. I need to win this, or buy it. My lovely parents are not internet savy, they cannot even check my blog. So they never know what my little girl (their 17th grandkid) looks like.
    I could just send and viola, my mom can tape it to her fridge!

    *fringers crossed.
