Do you have a family member or friend who is offline and doesn’t have a computer or email at home? Do you have a grandparent to whom you would love to send emails and photos, but they don’t have a computer or internet access?
If so, then check out Presto – a cool new service that delivers emails, photos and other content to people who don’t use a computer. So you can send emails and photos to Grandma and they just automatically print out on her HP Presto printer – the HP Printing Mailbox.
The cost of the printer is quite affordable at only about $150 US and the monthly service fee is $10. But, of course – one of you is getting it all FREE – Presto is including a one year free subscription along with the printer!
Now – if you are concerned that Grandma won’t be able to even set it all up, let alone work it – no worries. It is actually quite simple. You can set it up online or the user can call the Presto Customer Care toll-free line and get it all set up for them.
Then the messages are automatically set to print up to 5 times per day (you set your schedule) through an existing phone line (the service is designed to not interrupt calls.)
How fun is that? The printer just pops out full color photos and emails for dear, sweet Grandma – or whomever else you choose to give a Presto. Grandma can receive unlimited emails, photos and content from anyone she gives her “presto.com” email address to. Presto even transforms plain emails with a beautiful, colorful design. (There are lots of designs to choose from and you can change at any time – or even add seasonal themes.)
We thought this idea was so fabulous for people who are literally “disconnected” that we wanted to let you know about Presto and give one of you the chance to win it.
The service is only available within the US – so this contest will be limited to those of you who would be giving the Presto HP Printing Mailbox and Presto subscription to a US resident with a US phone number. I know it is sad! We live in Canada and so we aren’t able to use the service ourselves either. BUT we didn’t want that to stop us from letting our American friends benefit!
So if you know someone who would love to be “connected” without the technological complications of owning a computer and having internet access, then enter to win one right here!
We will play by the usual rules:
Here is what you do:
- First – sign the Mr. Linky with your name and URL by Monday, April 9th at 1:00pm Eastern. We will announce the winner Monday afternoon. Note: make sure you have signed the Mr. Linky by 1pm Eastern, Monday April 9th. If you are not a blogger, you may still enter. Just sign your name on the Mr. Linky without a URL and then email me your contact information at janice @ 5minutesformom.com (remember to remove those spaces!) Please note on your email that it is for the Presto contest.
- Second – on your blog, link to this contest in case any of your readers have friends or family that might benefit from this service. And please also link to Presto to show our appreciation of their support. If you are not a blogger, no worries, you obviously can’t link. But if you want, you can tell your friends about the contest. I am sure some of them have offline loved ones to whom they would love to give Presto.
- Note: the Presto service is only available to US phone numbers, so this contest is limited to those of you who would be giving the Presto HP Printing Mailbox and Presto subscription to a US resident with a US phone number. For example, if you are Canadian, but Grandma lives in Florida – you are good to enter (as long as we are shipping the product to the US address.)
