Contest Winnings: My Moo Luxe Minicards Arrived!

Full disclosure: this is not a paid blog or promotion for Moo or Mohawk Paper, this is just me excited about winning a giveaway by Felt & Wire (Mohawk Paper’s community website) for a US$100 credit for Moo product and free shipping. Using the credit, I ordered 400 Luxe minicards, paid the small difference in cost ($9) above the $100 credit and I also paid duty ($15 and change) on the total when I picked up the package at the post office today. I am quite impressed the offer of free shipping included Canada!

Here’s the giveaway, on July 24, 2013.

The deadline was July 31, and I only discovered the giveaway that day through a retweet on Twitter by Moo’s account. Entries for the contest were comments about a user’s favourite Moo product and why, the deadline was at 3pm, and my comment was posted at 10:23am:

I’ve used Moo.com for cards ever since they launched with a mini-card promotion on Flickr way back in 2004. (Flickr also started in 2004.) Moo gave 10 free minis and people would get each card printed with a different photo and trade them for other people’s cards.

Moo’s cards have always stood out, whether I gave out minis or the full-size business cards. I got the ones with rounded corners, which were a new feature then, and had their custom-made stickers to add to stationery. Moo’s come a long way since 2004, but they have always been very consistent in quality and customer service. I hope they stick around for a long while!

It’s a great feeling to win a product I already use!

I didn’t get around to putting in an order until August 10, but Moo turned it around in four days and shipped it on August 14, with an estimated arrival date of August 30. It was held at the post office overnight for duty, so it actually only took a week between the order shipping from Moo’s U.S. location in Rhode Island and delivery to Toronto. Pretty good for free shipping. Another win for Moo, and thanks to Felt & Wire for the swag!
