    Thought this must fit the business section. Maybe some of you business managers might like to know how another company is advertising too, even if it is Angie's List.

    I've never got something like this in the mail before. After price letter openers that hold business cards, I can only speculate what this gadget must have cost per address they send it to. Wonder if we are a test mailing or if they have done that elsewhere.

    This thing is actually loud for it's size. If held in our kitchen, anybody in the living room would be able to hear it clearly. I was wondering what the heck was the lump. I found it only because I ripped the mailing in half like I usually do with Angie's List mailings. Then this gadget dangled on a shred

    And the question is, does it have more than one function?

    It's a spoken advertisement.

    Voice recording of a woman for Angie's List.

    And the volume is substantial for it's size. Sort a cool mailing, but wow, what a big mailing bill per every 10,000 households.

    They must be raking in some pretty good income these days.

    And here I thought they had sent you a new cell phone lol, just kidding. Thats a nifty trick! Must cost quite a bit but things can be made very cheap overseas now, especially in such large quantities. And it worked, I'm sure we're not the only people you told the story to, helps the word spread.
