Hello M:R Nation –
Our marketing department comes up with some pretty clever stuff. Some of the ideas come to fruition and some never see the light of day. Something interesting that came across my desk recently was a play on pet adoption. Instead of a cute puppy or hamster, it utilizes iPads and other devices that we see abandoned here at our Kansas City location. While we might still use this idea, I though it was cute enough to share to our over 800,000 unique blog readers (shameless boast). Here is our “Adopt a device” program in its infancy:
Meet our iPad Mini!
This scuffed up guy once enjoyed playing angry birds, watching netflix and surfin’ the net for new restaurants in the KC area. After being dropped, resulting in a cracked screen this iPad Mini’s owner decided to replace him instead of repairing. This neglected tablet is looking for a forever home and a new LCD Screen! Adopt this iPad Mini and take it home for only $150. (Adoption fee includes new LCD screen and repair costs by our certified technicians!)
Our plan here is to take unwanted devices and offer to you for free and all you would pay is the price that it would be to repair the device. While this sounds like a great idea to us, we would like to test this with our readers. Our goal is to keep these devices out of the land fills and get them out of our building to be completely honest. So what do you think? Would you adopt a device? You have a chance for a low cost device that will last you years to come!
