Win an iPad 3: Tell your best FollowUpThen Story

The contest has ended! Congratulations to Lee Roy for submitting the winning story.

The New iPad 3

Yes, an iPad 3. Retina display. 4G network. Blazing fast speeds. And yours for free!

So how does this work?

This contest was inspired by a fish – by the name of Nerry. He gets fed every night because of a FollowUpThen SMS reminder sent to my phone...and only because
of a FollowUpThen reminder. Yes, this little guy owes his life to FollowUpThen.

Nerry says thank you

To our surprise, we found that Nerry's case is not unique. Since making FollowUpThen, we've heard tons of stories about how an email or SMS reminder at the right time saved the day –  saving relationships, not getting fired, health of animals and people alike. It's so inspiring receiving these that, well, we wanted to hear more!

The contest will last until March 14th at 11:00am (Pacific Time) - one week from this morning's unveiling of the new iPad.

So dig up your most unique, funny, interesting or epic story for how FollowUpThen has helped you. Post it in the comments section on this page.
We will let the the community and your social network rate them by 'liking' your story.

The story with the most 'likes' wins.*

We're looking forward to hearing your story. A shiny new iPad3 is probably sitting in some shipping container right now with your name one it!
