Looking for a coupon?

Hello everyone- we sent out a newsletter yesterday to our local region, and if you missed it, we’ve got the special right here for you.

mission

We are offering 20% off on any repair now through Friday at closing time (which is 7:00 pm, CST) if you visit our location in Mission, Kansas. The address is 5604 Johnson Drive, Mission Kansas 66202, and you can get directions here.

Please note that this is NOT valid on mail-in orders; don’t worry for all of our customers in other areas of the country we will make sure to offer you a special shortly. Rather, this is valid on new walk-in repairs at our newest store. Why? We are celebrating the “near” completion of the downtown district redesign and if you remember the “old down town”, you’ll see that the streets have been improved, the sidewalks are wider and well designed, and the parking is much better. This store of ours is downtown in a great location and now you don’t need to walk through a construction zone to get to it 😉

It’s a customer appreciation sale and all you need to do to get this special pricing is print out a copy of this blog (or the newsletter if you’re a subscriber), walk in to our Mission Repair Express location now through tomorrow evening at 7:00pm, show your customer service representative this special and place your repair order to receive the 20% discount.

Thank you.

Own a “vintage” phone?

Hello friends, I just watched a video on CNN.com that talked about the fad of owning and using a “vintage” cell phone. This was work related, so watching videos while at work is ok in this situation 😉

Apparently there is a new trend in cell phones – one that is making it “cool” to use an older, greyscale, non-smart phone as a sign and symbol of the times. I think that I might be one of the users that would quite possibly lean toward a “less-smart” smartphone – personally I’ve got so many means of communication with the outside world including through this blog I’m writing, that my cell phones seem to be on “offense” at all times. Yes, I have 2 phones, both set up and designed for very different purposes. Gulp.

In fact, I recently removed my email from my iPhone altogether and I’m a much happier man for it. I know, it’s strange…I just wait until I get to the office!

I find it a bit distracting when I’m out at a restaurant and see everyone swiping their phones; reading, texting, gaming or whatever. In my opinion it’s not a bad idea to take a break from the technology and look up once in a while.

UK manufacturer, Binatone, is making a new “Brick” phone. That’s right, it’s similar to the one that in the picture above, but it’s actually new and you can buy them now. Simple technology and a fashion statement to boot that come in several colors. There’s a caveat – you won’t get the smartphone experience. Not being able to Tweet or visit Facebook might freak you out for a minute but let’s face it, what did you do before Twitter and Facebook were around?

There’s a plus to older phones. Not only are they nostalgic but with the lack of a full-face glass screen they seemed indestructible. I can’t tell you how many times I dropped my old Blackberry on the ground and it NEVER failed. One drop of an iPhone and you’ll need to send it into us for glass repair. It’s how and why we are in business.

Are you willing to lose your smart features? Well that’s your call – no pun intended.

Happy talking, Ryan

So, it was about -30 degrees yesterday. It’s truely causing some issues.

Hello friends,

Negative 30 degrees Fahrenheit. Yeah. That’s about as bad as it gets. Whats worse is that it’s causing travel delays all around the country. Travel including freight airliners that would normally deliver your packages and repairs from Mission Repair overnight to your location…we are finding that they are taking a day or two extra at this time.

In fact, we only received in a handful of packages today from FedEx, when we normally get in a truckload.

So please be aware when we send something overnight and if it doesn’t get there on time, you can get a refund on the shipping charges. However this doesn’t apply to delays due to weather…so we are all in this together. I hope that you’ve found a nice warm place in your house to cuddle during these cold days and rest assured that when you emerge from your retreat, packages and shipments will be delivered like normal.

Have a great night, Ryan

Have you heard our Football radio commericals? Discount inside!

Hello friends,

September came and went – now October is here and in particular football season is in full swing. In fact, if you spent any time in front of the television yesterday watching football, you saw some fantastic games – even a game that went late into the evening!

Since we are a Kansas City based company, we’ve been running specials every week on our local 101 the Fox radio station before, during and after each Kansas City Chiefs game. In fact you can hear me issue a special each week according to the number of touchdowns the Chiefs score.

Yesterday they scored two touchdowns. Yes, I’ll even give the discount when they score on special teams touchdown too, so their sole offensive touchdown gets added to the total. Need that iPhone repaired? When the Chiefs score, you score!

How much of a discount to we offer? Well you’re just going to have to tune in to hear the live broadcast each week, and for those of you that don’t live in Kansas City, you can hear each broadcast live here!

Why not add to your savings when using Mission Repair? You’re probably going to watch or listen to the games anyway right? I’m just here to help.

Have a good day, Ryan
