When planning a destination wedding or honeymoon, there are countless details to take into account. Most likely, you’re going to be making purchases beyond flowers and table runners. For example, you might be interested in buying a fitness device if you’re trying to get in shape for the wedding, or considering purchasing a new camera for your honeymoon. Whenever you make an electronic buying decision, it can be stressful for the average shopper. With so many options, how do you know you’re making the right purchase for you? Well, we’ve found a simple solution to the buying quandary!
Lumoid is a try-before-you-buy gear rental service that delivers the latest gadgets straight to your door. The company delivers within the U.S. with no hidden fees – you only pay for the days you would like to keep the items and then them ship them back when you’re finished. Through Lumoid you can rent anything from photo equipment (cameras, lenses, tripods) to techie gear like drones. For more info, here’s the low-down on how Lumoid works:
- Select the gear you would like to try from the website
- Choose the date you need the items to arrive by and the date you will ship them back
- Input your shipping address and place your order
- Once your items arrive, open the box and enjoy
- When your trial period has ended, simply ship back using the prepaid shipping label
- Once the items have been safely returned to Lumoid, they clean, test and calibrate each item to make sure it is in perfect condition for the next user.
Once you’ve made your decision as to which product you want to purchase, you can put a percentage of the rental fee you paid towards your final purchase. You can also accumulate rental fees to put towards a final purchase. (i.e. You try out four different cameras and then put a percentage of those rental fees towards purchasing your favorite one.)
The company also recently expanded to include their “Wearables Box” for couples trying to get in shape. Choose up to five devices to try out for up to seven days, then send them back. If one of them stuck your fancy, Lumoid will send you a brand new device and waive the $20 rental/try-on fee. Devices for the “Wearables Box” include FitBit, Jawbone Up, Nike+ products, Samsung Gear Fit, Misfit Shine and Garmin watches.
For destination wedding or honeymoon couples, Lumoid is also perfect for people who are traveling. Select your final destination as your shipping address, and your cool gadgets will be waiting for you when you arrive. Get amazing honeymoon photos, without having to purchase that impressive camera for good. For more information, visit lumoid.com.
