Have you ever said to someone, “I can’t make it out tonight but I owe you a beer!”? Or maybe you’re the type of person who loves giving gifts but is terrible at coming up with great gift ideas. Don’t worry, you’re not alone! PintSender is a company that is here to help.
What is PintSender?
Started by three Calgarian friends, PintSender is an online service that, like the name suggests, allows you to send a pint of beer to a friend, a co-worker, your dog-walker, or even your main squeeze on Valentine’s Day. PintSender is essentially making it easier for people to buy someone a drink.
Jeremy, one of the founders of PintSender, came up with the idea when a friend who lives in Australia was celebrating his 40th birthday. He then brought it up with his friends, David and Ryan, and the idea took off.
It’s a good way for business to broaden their horizons, especially as a venue, [PintSender] brings in new audiences. We’re all about community and now people can buy each other pints and have a good time. – Jordan Bodnar, Bartender at Hayden Block
- Create an account on PintSender.com
- Enter your credit card information
- Send your lover, friend, grandpa, etc. a beer through email or text message and they can redeem it one of 46 participating locations in Alberta, British Columbia and Ontario
It’s really as easy is 1-2-3! Once you’re the receiver gets their link to redeem the pint, they will show their server at the bar and viola! your friend can now enjoy a pint, on you!
How much is a pint of beer on PintSender?
Each pint of beer you send is $9 — with $7 going to the bar and $2 going to the guys at PintSender.
If your Valentine’s Day crush isn’t as much of a beer lover as you, that’s ok! They can swap out their “pint” for select wine or spirits at most locations.
