Have you heard about the Amazon Treasure Truck making its way to the UK?
If you have never heard of this then the Amazon Treasure Truck is a service which offers users a limited discounted daily deal. Their fleet of vehicles has been a success in the United States and are now hitting the United Kingdom. The trucks have appeared in my hometown of Leeds twice now. On 7th March they announced the truck will be rolling up and down London, Manchester, Yorkshire, the Midlands, the HomeCounties, and the SouthCoast.
The truck alerts users of its limited edition deals and location for that day via text message. Our first experience was on Valentines day. 36 red roses and some Ferrero Rocher chocolates for £10. Not only is that an incredible price, the chocolate alone should have been £6, but the truck team were so friendly, fun and had valentines day cards for customers to take too. Perfect last minute gifts, that sold out quickly!
Yesterday’s offer was for 56% off the UE Boom 2. A few years ago I worked with UE Boom at London Fashion Week and have loved this robust speaker. The UE Boom 2 is now drop proof and waterproof so is perfect for my family on summer days out or for having to sing in the shower.
To give you an idea of how good their offers are they were selling their 300 UE Boom 2 yesterday for £49.99, despite them costing £169.99 from the brands own website. Ultimate Ears wireless bluetooth speaker provides 360 degrees surround sound, is shockproof and can be immersed in water up to one meter for 30 minutes!
Pick up this time was in the Victoria Quatre in Leeds, near John Lewis. Their exact location varies each time they visit and are only at set locations for 2 hour periods. As you can see it was a rather miserable and grey, rainy day in Leeds but their trucks are hard to miss and get a lot of attention. Yesterday saw them team up with local artists so that you could have your Ultimateears Boom 2 speaker personalised upon collection.
