I purchased a RoadID

Since I run so often at night, I though having some form of ID on me would be a good investment. To that end, I've ordered a WristID Elite from RoadID. This will also replace my "penicillin allergy" wristband that I wear.

The band hasn't arrived yet, but I did just receive an awesome email from them with a coupon code good for up to 20 people, for the next month. It's witty and cool, something seriously lacking in most customer service these days. It's what I've found from this company, though, from following them on Twitter...

I'm just going to copy the whole "sample email to your friends" right in here, to give everyone a feel for it. Thanks again, RoadID - can't wait to get my band.

SAMPLE EMAIL: Feel free to copy the following text and paste it into a new email to your friends.

Hey Everyone,

I just ordered one of the best products ever. It's called a Road ID - perhaps you've heard of it. If you haven't, go to their website and check it out. Road ID is a great product that could save your life someday.

When I ordered, they gave me a coupon that I could pass along to my friends. Here's the coupon number:

Coupon Number: ThanksTuri2333186

The coupon is good for $1 off any Road ID order placed by 02/22/2011. To order, simply go to or click the link below:

You can thank me later,

Oh by the way, their website is awesome, the customer service is outstanding, and the owners are very smart and good looking.

And they also included a sample tweet -

I finally ordered a Road ID. Don't have one yet? Do it now. Coupon ThanksTuri2333186 saves a buck - valid 30 days @RoadID

I just got my roadID (wrist elite) last week, and already love it. I bet you will too!

Awww, no more matching Penicillin allergy wristbands for us? ;) Guess it IS a good idea- I run with absolutely no ID on me, and it would be smart to have when on a trail by myself...

Smart, smart purchase!

Good call T! I ended up with the dogtag version because it seemed the best size to have Georgia & Nevada emergency #'s. I think I might need to go with the bracelet because I often forget to wear it.
