Forgot Your Lunch Money? Text for a Free Mystery Brown Bag

By

After reading about it on Tribeca Citizen, we couldn't resist trying MaxDelivery's Super Max Snack (SMS, get it?) service this afternoon. Here's how it works: You send a text to 32075 including your name, your address, zip code, and any additional notes for the delivery guy. Within a minute or two, you'll get a reply indicating your request was successfully processed, and then, once the delivery goes out, another message telling you when to expect your free snack. Sure enough, within twenty minutes of receiving initial confirmation we got a call from the delivery guy telling us that he was at the elevator with what turned out to be a brown paper bag containing a Stonyfield strawberry smoothie, a Snickers bar, and an apple. There was also a coupon for $10 off our first order of $20 or more on MaxDelivery.com. As the saying goes, there’s no such thing as a free lunch (for everyone, anyway): Snacks are limited to one per person and are available to the first 30 requests sent between the hours of noon and 5 p.m. daily.
