My younger brother Jesse is now a college freshmen at my alma mater BYU, and I love having him close by! He tends to ask questions that normal freshmen do, such as: What kind of oil do I put in my car? How long do I cook the chicken for? What temperature do I wash my brights on? He has come over numerous times to get help with laundry and to make sure he doesn't forget what I've taught him, I made this infographic for reference!
My parents like to make sure he is stocked on cleaning/washing supplies, so the new #AmazonWishlist feature on Amazon.com would be a great tool for Jesse to let them know when he is low on dorm necessities. Also, if they sign up for a subscription of this Proctor & Gamble laundry necessities box they can save 5% so Jesse is never detergent-less again!
This Proctor & Gamble Laundry Bundle with Tide Pods, Downy, and Unstoppable is the perfect dorm care package that is both thoughtful and useful! The Tide Pods come in Spring Meadow, the Bounce dryer sheets in Outdoor Fresh, and Downy Unstoppables give laundry that extra fresh boost. Boys smell (it's especially bad in the dorms), so all of these amazing smell-good products will go to great use!
The #AmazonWishList feature allows the user to simply add the #AmazonWishList hashtag on the end of a tweet which includes a product they are interested in (with an amazon.com link); and it will automatically add it to the wish list on their Amazon account! Some of the other features that come with the Amazon Wish List is: Save-A-Photo, Universal Wish List Add-On, and Virtual Notes. Then my personal favorite is the Don't Spoil my Surprise, which allows friends/family of the user to view the wish list and surprise them with something off the list without notifying the user of it's purchase!
To help you get the hang of #AmazonWishList, Amazon is hosting a Twitter party! They will be offering special promotions on all featured items which also includes $1 off any of the featured products purchased during the party when using the hashtags #AmazonWishList and #AmazonHasIt. They'll also be giving away 10 Kindles during the Twitter soiree! Um, who doesn't want discounted stuff and the possibility of winning a Kindle?! The shindig is TOMORROW, October 15th from 11-12pm EST. Be there or be square!! Or go square dancing...whichever ;)
