While I was on vacation, I received the best pitch ever for a product review. The item was The Snugg is a company that makes high quality cases for iPhones, Kindles, tablets & more. Here are a few snippets from the email:
“If you are still reading, then thank you. I am lucky enough to represent a company called Snugg. I appreciate that there are trillions of people who sell covers, and I won’t ram a load of facts and figures down your throat and will try to keep it to a [minimum.]Your blog is fantastic so I would like to send you a cover, feel free to keep/distribute at your will, without charge, and I would invite you to leave a frank, honest and genuine review of our product. If you could save my chances of continuing gainful employment by reviewing these products[…]”
This is a guy who loves his job and the company he works for, and he totally deserves a raise. Since Snugg offers a variety of products, I got to pick which one I wanted to review. It goes without saying that I immediately picked the Kindle Fire HDcase, since it seems to be next to imposable to find a good one.
Snugg has Kindle cases to fit all available models, and I needed the 7”. At this point in time, they only offer them in black, but I’m not picky about colors. They mailed the case out on June 29th, and I received it last week. The case is soft leather, with opening on the sides so that you can easily plug in the charger. There is a loop for a stylus and the cover can convert into a sturdy stand. There is even a gap for the webcam. I think I have used my Kindle more in the last week than I have since I got it for Christmas. The stand lets me prop it up anywhere, so it’s a lot easier to read in bed now. I can even set it up on the coffee table and chat/argue about new episodes of The Venture Bros or tweet about the dreaded SharkNado. My daughter has also run around with it a bit to play games, and the case still looks like new.
I received the above mentioned product for free.
