Today’s Hook-Up: Your Vegas Box Awaits
Now, why didn’t we think of this?
You know how you come to Vegas, and you end up buying all kinds of personal stuff when you arrive? Things like suntan lotion and shaving cream and your special brand of shampoo or conditioner and all that? And then you either have to lug it all back home, or you have to chuck it because of airline regulations or whatever and realize you’ve wasted an overhead bin’s worth of hard-earned cash?
Well, here’s a novel idea. “The Vegas Box” is a new service that provides a box (more of a sturdy plastic bin) for your goodies, then when your Vegas adventure is over, picks up your locked box and stores it in a secure location, then delivers your items to your Las Vegas hotel upon your return.
Saves money. Convenient. Confidential. We’re not seeing a lot of downside here. How many half-consumed bottles of, say, Captain Morgan have been tossed (gasp!) because one’s Vegas visit has ended? The Vegas Box appears to be a solution. Get more details.
A lock with a seven digit-code is provided with your box, too, so you’re the only one who gets in. (Nothing illegal can be stored, of course.)
The Vegas Box works on a yearly pricing plan, and we talked the Vegas Box folks into an exclusive offer just for Pulse of Vegas Blog readers. The usual one-year membership price is $159 (which includes three pick-up/deliveries). If you order online, use the magical code POVBLOG and get a year of the service for just $99.
We just handed you $60. You owe us a cocktail.
If nothing else, The Vegas Box seems a great way to avoid excessive lugging of bags. This blog hates lugging.
And let’s just say it, there are some things one purchases and uses in Vegas that might not be all that useful back home. Leave your stripper stilettos or Elvis costume or gigantic Mardi Gras beads right here in Sin City until you’re back again. Oh, you’ll be back again.
