Kanageroo hasn’t really won a great deal in lotteries or the like over the years (despite hitting the jackpot in so many other ways), so it was a pleasant surprise last week to win a great prize!
That prize was a gift coupon for undies!
Kangaeroo won the undies through a website called Miles.
Miles is a downloaded phone app (at least that’s how I use it) that keeps a record of all my travel.
A bit ominous perhaps, but I have nothing to fear and my phone is tracking my every move and sending all the data anywhere, anyway.
Mrs. Kangaeroo encouraged the download, considering how much cycling I do.
So, I downloaded the app and kept fairly consistent tabs on it.
The premise, or so I believe, is to accumulate points and then use those points for purchases or discounts on buys.
The trouble with the app was, no matter how many points I built up, I could only earn discounts. I wasn’t too keen on paying, so I just kept storing points for miles moved.
Then, I discovered that the app held raffles and I could take part in these by using the points I had built up.
I promptly joined in whatever was available, and took part in each raffle while using the maximum number of points possible to increase my chances of winning.
Didn’t win much.
Didn’t win anything, in fact, except for the marvelous 2Under undies.
Claiming the prize required registration.
Unfortunately, this was automated from an old address.
I promptly notified the people at 2Under and they responded.
Within a few days of winning the raffle, I found myself with an awesome pair of luxury undies.
It was a delight to have such super skids.
They were delivered in an extremely fancy box.
The undies feel good, fit perfectly and have gone some way to changing the way I view undergarments (in a way that only Heat Tech has ever done before).
Perhaps most importantly, though, the undies come equipped with a Joey Pouch, the name that 2Under give to the added space they provide in the front of the jocks to give room “to support your equipment in comfort and style.” (Company’s words!)
Hard for a Kangaeroo to disagree about the special merits of a joey!
