Just in time for the holidays, I stumbled upon what has to be my favorite app yet: Postmates.
This may just be the best thing to ever happen to NYC. For just $7 shipping, anything you want (seriously) will be delivered to you within an hour. As I played with it, I was in awe of the variety of shops you can order from. If I want shoes from Bergdorf Goodman, or compost cookies from Momofuku Milk Bar, I can get it all within an hour. And for those of you who do anything in your power to avoid shipping costs - hello, RetailMeNot coupon codes - if you think about it, that $7 fee is just $2 more than your round trip subway ride...and you don't even have to leave your couch.
I know I'm going to do all of my Christmas shopping with Postmates and I think you should too. That's why if you go to Postmates.com & enter my code (tvpm), you get $10.00 free!
How's that for a happy holidays?
