An App-tastic Christmas on FreeTrade Ireland!

It’s always a good day at FreeTrade Ireland when we meet our lovely users! This Christmas we’ve been busy spreading Christmas cheer to 2 lucky users who got new smartphones ahead of Santa’s Christmas visit simply for using our new smartphone app !

Sean Brady receives Android Smartphone from FreeTrade IrelandSean Brady in Limerick was thrilled with becoming a new member of FreeTrade Ireland, downloading our new app and opening his life up to the world of reuse and waste prevention but he received a Sony Xperia to continue to communicate the free trade message!

Pauline McDonagh, Limerick Clare Kerry Regional Waste Prevention Co-Ordinator (recently of Waste Watchers fame on RTE!), was on hand to pass on the prize to Sean and his daughter.

For the iPhone the competition really heated up. Every day we took great interest in picking the mobile item of the day and adding them to our gallery.

This week the white smoke emerged when Sarah Cannon was deemed to have posted the best ‘Mobile ad’ of the competition, launched on November 13th until Friday December 13th.

We had everything from foosball tables to solid pine units to bicycle helmets and food processors. The FreeTrade Ireland bar was pretty high and we have seen a lot of good quality items passing through the FreeTrade Ireland pages over the years. 

Sarah’s item was a beautiful beige 3 & 2 seater leather couch in pristine condition!

So Sarah from Shankhill, Dublin was the proud new owner of the iPhone 5c and well she may wear! She  informed us that she was actually the victim of her own success as she had been sitting on the floor since posting her mobile ad as the couch she free traded left so swiftly the new one hadn’t even arrived yet!

So thats FreeTrade for 2013 almost wrapped up!

We would like to wish all our users a Merry Free Trade Ireland Christmas!

PS For any new smartphones delivered by Santa this Christmas remember to download our new app for FREE on iTunes  or Google Play!
