Heat Wave…and a Coupon Inside!

Hello there summer friends,

It’s been an interesting start to the year as the weather in Kansas City has been strangely rainy. It seems like every weekend that I have a chance to take the boat out, it’s been raining.

That’s all changed and this week there’s an official “heat wave” coming through the Midwest and a “heat advisory” that extends until 9:00pm tonight here in Kansas City. When I walk outside from an air-conditioned building it takes about 30 seconds for my sweat glands to kick it into overdrive.

Yesterday it was 96 degrees F, but it felt like 105 degrees according to the heat index. Since it’s so humid in this area, the actual temperature never seems to be relevant. The “feels like” temperature is what I always hone into when watching the news! Today is nearly the same.

So if you brave it out to head into one of our locations we’ll reward you for doing so! Heck, today is a perfect day to visit our Colorado Mission Repair, it’s only 92.5 degrees F – but get this – because it’s so dry in Lakewood, Colorado the “feels like” temperature is actually only 91 degrees. Yeah, that’s awesome “mountain air” for ya!

Again, if you head into one of our shops today, we’re offering a $10 off discount on any repair that’s over $50 now through the end of the week, Friday 7/17/15 at midnight. Just enter coupon code “HOT” when checking out online, or print and bring a copy of this blog to your sales representative for your discount. Please, no discounts without a print out, and this coupon cannot be combined with any other coupon or discount, including “Got Repair” benefit prices.

You don’t have to rush in. It’s too hot for that. Just slowly make your way into a Mission Repair location or place your order online and we’ll be happy to extend that $10 off coupon on your next iPhone, iPod, Mac or other Smartphone repair until this Friday.

Thanks and have a great day, Ryan

Johnson Drive Barricade Breaking Event Was A Success!

IMG_5554This morning Ryan and I went to our Express walk-in location in Downtown Mission for the Barricade Breaking Event. Local business owners gathered to celebrate the New Downtown Mission. Construction is complete on Johnson Drive and everyone is excited. The mayor was there as well as other city officials and the Northeast Johnson County Chamber of Commerce members. Everyone is encouraged to shop in Mission this weekend to celebrate the completion of this project and to support local businesses.

To celebrate we are giving all walk-in customers at our Mission location 10% off their repair. This offer does not require a coupon and is only valid for NEW orders. This sale is only going on TODAY – SUNDAY so be sure to stop by this weekend. If you have a cracked iPhone screen or if you need an iPad repair – now is the time to visit us on Johnson Drive and Nall. While you wait for your device to get repaired, be sure to shop around and check out all the wonderful improvements on Johnson Drive.

Check out the video below of the barricade being broken! We are excited to see those disappear and I’m sure our customers are too. : )

Have your made your fantasy picks yet?

Happy Friday friends! It’s true…football 2014 has started.

Have you made your fantasy football picks yet? Just so you know, I had to stop playing fantasy football. It’s not that I’m better than it, nor was I actually very good at playing; it is just too big of a distraction from the games I really want to watch, so this year I am NOT going to play.

Now with that being said, I know that just about every one of my friends is in a league or two and I’m definitely not “normal” in that sense. In fact, some of my buddies think that I’m absolutely nuts. Hey guys, you’re just going to have to deal with it!

For the rest of you that are either NFL fans or not, it’s hard to not notice that the football season has started. In fact we are running a football promotion with discounts on every repair service that we offer through our newsletter that is going out to tens of thousands of customers today. Keep an eye out for it, because there will be a special coupon just for you football fans out there. It’s a great time to get hat iPad or Computer repaired. Well you don’t actually have to be a fan, but you might notice a common “pigskin” theme hit your email inbox shortly. Not signed up for our newsletter yet? Sign up now!

Until then, have a great afternoon and I’ll be back soon with more great Mission Repair info.

Take care, Ryan

Where is August going?

Hello friends,

It’s almost mid-August and time is flying by! My son Casey started his senior year of school today (I won’t embarrass him with the picture I took today) and he was even early this morning. If you’re already out of High School (like me!) do you remember your senior year?

Mine was at Amador Valley High School in Pleasanton, California. It’s kind of funny because now that I’m living in Kansas (Casey started school here and is finishing here), I get to tell my kids stories about how I used to go to Santa Cruz on the weekends, our lockers were outside of the school (not in hallways like they are here!) and we ate lunch outside…every day…yes even through the winter. Obviously, the weather is different in California and therefore the schools were set up differently. In fact, we also had “Open” lunches where we could leave campus and chow down at the Burrito Stop next to the school. Looking back now, it was a great benefit!

I grew up spending summers here- this bring back a lot of memories!

Well the hot August nights that we usually get here in Kansas City are unusually cool this year. It’s been a very mild summer when we normally expect a lot of heat and humidity. I’m not going to kid ya, it’s been nice! My yard is still green when typically I can’t keep up with the heat!

There’s a lot happening around here at Mission Repair too. We’ve added several new products and repairs to our lineup of services, we’re in “super” repair mode with all of the schools coming back online and there’s some great news coming down the pike about Mission Repair. I just can’t believe that it’s already August…NFL football has started and it’s feels like Fall is upon us. We’re moving into another season next month which also begins the busy season here for us as well. I’ll be planning my company Christmas party soon and talking about the New Year before we know it!

OK, that’s enough fast forwarding 😉 Stop…relax…enjoy August! I’ll be back soon with some great Mission Repair info!

14 pounds of pizza? We couldn’t do it.

Hello friends,

Last week was a heck of a week here at Mission Repair- especially since I was out of town visiting Colorado for new locations for our next Mission Repair Express. I’ll admit it; We spent a little “relaxing” time up in the mountains as well 😉

Every time I go to the Mile High area, I always stop in at Beau Jo’s pizza. Ever eaten there? Their pizzas are called “mountain pies” and are amazing. I’ve been taking my kids there since they were little, and ever since we’ve always put honey on our crust wherever we go! There are honey jars on the tables, FYI. Check out this picture I snapped from their menu with my iPhone:

They have a 14 pound pizza that is made to order – why 14 pounds? It’s because of the 14,000′ high peaks in the area…it seems like there’s no better way to pay tribute to the area’s biggest mountain tops! This amazing pizza was featured on the Travel Channel and you can watch the video here. You can even get it for free – check out the video.

Well we opted for a couple of smaller versions of the pizza which were as delicious as I remembered. We had our fill and only dreamed of the legendary 14er. Maybe next time 😉

Ok so I’m back in my office going through about 700 emails from last week – feels like 14,000 – and once I’m caught up I’ll be back with some great Mission Repair news. Thanks for reading!

Take care, Ryan

Hummingbird and a coupon inside!

Good morning friends-

I woke up this morning and took a walk outside to the hummingbird feeder just outside my door. There were several birds around the feeder and all but one flew away as I approached…

IMG_0734

I got a little closer…and a little closer…until this little guy just didn’t want to fly away. So I snatched up my iPhone and clicked the picture above. I was about a foot away from this cute avian so he posed and I started snapping away. I got a few of him fluttering about but in this pic he stopped and “eyeballed” me just as I was “eyeballing” him.

He probably thought “wow, look at how close this guy is getting to me. They never get that close, they always run away”. 😉

At the very least I thought the picture came out well so I wanted to post it for all to see!

This makes me feel like posting a coupon for Mission Repair in honor of my feathered friend. Let’s take 10% off of your repair order now through the end of July, 2014 with coupon code HUMMINGBIRD. Just enter this coupon online or bring a copy of this blog with you when you visit one of our locations today or tomorrow to receive your discount. This coupon cannot be combined with any other offers.

Thanks again for reading, I’ll be back soon with more great Mission Repair information!

Take care, Ryan

iPad Screen Repair Center – yes, in your hometown.

Good afternoon-

Did you know that we can repair your iPad, even if you’re located in Denver, Colorado? But what if you live in Austin, Texas? Or maybe Atlanta, Georgia?

overnight

Mission Repair DOES take walkins at any of our locations with no appointment necessary, but the main core of our business is still mail-in repairs. In fact, we can pick up your device even if you live in Concord, California. We will take the guesswork out of mail-in services, and it’s one of the reasons we can keep our prices low. In fact, we cover the entire 48 States top to bottom and on a daily basis it’s good to get to know a customer that lives in Boise, Idaho. We chat on the phone, decipher what is wrong with your iPad, have it picked up from your location, repair it, and deliver it back to you.

There’s no better way to get an iPad, iPhone, iPod or other hand held electronic device repaired if you don’t want to battle the traffic, lines and congestion of a retail location.

Yes, of course you can stop by one of our locations and drop it off as well…But since we don’t have a store in every town across the country we make things simple by completing your repair remotely.

Interested in sending your device into us? Give us a call 866-638-8402 and we’ll be glad to help you out!

Take care, Ryan
