How it works:
BuyYourFriendADrink.com is easy to use. It only takes two steps to buy your friend a drink or for your friend to redeem the gift:
-- To buy a drink: The gift giver clicks on the Buy A Drink button from our home page, fills out the gift information and writes a personalized message.
-- Message is sent: The gift recipient automatically receives an email and a text message that contain a personal message and a gift code.
-- To redeem the gift: The gift recipient finds a BYFAD bar or restaurant by clicking on the Receive a Gift? button on our home page. Then the gift recipient simply goes to the location of their choice, gives the bartender the gift code and orders his or her drink. A BuyYourFriendADrink.com gift does not require the pre-selection of a redemption location.
When you would use it:
Sending a drink using BuyYourFriendADrink.com is the perfect gift for when you can't attend a celebration, want to congratulate a friend or colleague, or simply want to send someone a cool, unique gift.
James Hobson, BuyYourFriendADrink.com's Chief Operating Officer, said, "I joined the company because I was overwhelmed with the number of times that I could have used a service like BuyYourFriendADrink.com. I travel a lot and often have to decline invitations to my friends' parties. To me, BYFAD is a great gift to send in those situations."
"We're excited to officially launch BuyYourFriendADrink.com and we're looking forward to creating a whole new opportunity for people to say 'cheers' to their friends when they can't be there to celebrate," added Cohn.
