Disclosure: The following is the result of a compensated campaign in collaboration with Veo and Latina Bloggers Connect. As always, know that my opinions are now and always will be my own. Just ask The Husband. Or my mother. Or *his* mother. You've been here before, right?
The Husband wins this year. At least for Mother's Day. Usually it's me asking him if we've taken care of his mother's birthday or his father's Christmas gift, already knowing the answer, before asking him what he thinks of whatever it i I've already ordered and shipped because it's just easier that way. But this time, it was him texting me from work to ask if I had taken care of Mother's Day yet.
But he already knew that because before I could write back, he texted a suggestion to choose a pretty floral arrangement for each and have them delivered in time to stay in our moms' good graces. Since the idea didn't involve me having to scour the internet for something awesome, or a trip to the stores to buy something I would then have to ship, I told him he was awesome and decided to give the Veo Mobile App a shot at earning a permanent spot in my iPhone app library.
My phone is always with me and I had just seen a push update flash across the screen with a few Mother' Day offers, so I figured it was a good time to give it a go. That little 49 you see in the corner is the number of messages I need to scroll through!
Veo, powered by the Latinum, is actually pretty genius. Users can sign up for free trials, window shop and take advantage of current deals, or browse by brand partners. Notable bonuses include the little things that matter: the app is bilingual and refers to the good deals you can score as "cositas buenas" because, obviously. And because I'm never short on opinions, I like that Veo thought it important to include an option for me to tell the brand what I think for each deal or trial offered.
This is why my mother and mother-in-law won't be sending us hate mail come Monday, y'all. Veo App to the freaking rescue! Note that the deal ends the day after Mother's Day. I'm gonna chalk that up to the fact that Veo App knows I run on Mexican Time. That's synonymous with Latino Time, which means I might get there late, but I'm gonna make an entrance when I show up.
Flowers always make an entrance.
I ended up making two separate purchases through the Veo App -- one for each of our mothers -- with Eliana by my side. She watched my iPhone screen as I scrolled and she's the one who selected the floral arrangement to be received for each of her grandmothers. This heart-shaped succulent planter is the one she picked for my mom. I can't wait to hear what she thinks.
I'm also interested in what you think and am happy to tell you about your chance at a $25 gift card.
To be considered for the contest, you must give Veo a go on your smartphone and come back to this post leaving me a comment about your experience. One entry per person and entries will close on May 16 at 12 a.m. EST. I will randomly select one winner and announce in my newsletter, The Tortilla Press, which you can sign up for here.
So..te veo. Que me dices?
I love a good play on words. Don't you?
