My Punchbowl Review and Giveaway

I got a great opportunity to review this awesome site, My PunchBowl.

Here is some info from their press release:
Framingham, Mass. (PRWeb) March 23, 2009 – In this era of large social networking sites and impersonal online relationships, we all need an easy and dependable way to keep track of the birthdays that matter the most. Enter MyPunchbowl Birthday Reminders. The new product, from the company behind the award-winning party planning site MyPunchbowl, offers a simple service to remember the birthdays of the people in your life that matter the most – your sister, your brother, your parents, your grandparents, and your close friends. “I’ve got hundreds of ‘friends’ in my social network, and it’s hard to sort out the birthdays that really matter,” said Dawn Dowling, a MyPunchbowl user. “MyPunchbowl Birthday Reminders helps me remember the birthdays of the 30 to 40 people that mean the most to me.” MyPunchbowl Birthday Reminders includes the ability to create groups of birthdays for simple organization. Users can create groups or select from the suggested groups, which include Friends, Immediate Family, Extended Family, Work Colleague, and even Pets. Not only do the groups keep your birthday reminders organized, but also you can quickly share a group with others. This feature is perfect for couples or friends where one of the pair is more organized. Additional features of MyPunchbowl Birthday Reminders enable users to:

• Sign up for the service using your Facebook account
• Request birthdays from family and friends via email and watch your list grow
• Use Facebook and Twitter to collect birthdays
• Organize birthday reminders into helpful groups
• Easily share your reminder list groups with others
• Customize settings to specify the time and frequency of your birthday reminders

MyPunchbowl Birthday Reminders connects seamlessly with the award-winning, web-based applications available on MyPunchbowl. Upon receiving a birthday reminder, users can easily begin planning a party using MyPunchbowl Party Planning or send truly personalized birthday greetings using MyPunchbowl eCard Studio.

“MyPunchbowl Birthday Reminders is the perfect complement to the personalized event planning and free eCards available on MyPunchbowl,” said Matt Douglas, CEO, Punchbowl Software. “With the addition of Birthday Reminders, MyPunchbowl offers another innovation to help our customers celebrate life’s milestones in the most personal way.”

I was able to review their birthday reminder. I have this problem of always forgetting birthdays, so this was perfect for me! It was super easy to go in and add the birthdays that I do know, but it also gives the option to send an e-mail requesting birthdays, or post a birthday-date request through Facebook or Twitter. It’s really awesome, and really easy to use. Plus, I can see myself using this forever. It's a great way to keep track and it's not just written on sticky notes that I always manage to lose.
