Purple Trail (Review & Giveaway – May 30)

Around my house, we are about to enter the Party Zone. Meaning, we have one thing after another from now until Christmas. With Zander’s Kindergarten Graduation next month, my and Zander’s birthdays in July, Ashley’s birthday in August, Jace and Lucy’s birthdays in September, and Parker’s birthday in October, I’m trying to keep from going crazy. And I’m constantly trying to figure out how to keep everything I need to plan organized.

Thank heavens I was introduced to PurpleTrail. With their super easy way to send online invitations and party planning tips, I have been having a ball. My favorite part is that everything is ad free, and FREE. (I love free – especially considering that I have so many things to plan over the next several months.)

With the Free Plan at PurpleTrail, you get the following perks:

  1. No ads in Email Invitations.
  2. Up to 75 Email Invitations per event.
  3. Up to 250 Email Invitations per month.
  4. Customer Service within 2 business days.

That’s really a lot of options for free! Obviously, if you pay, you get more perks. The price of the upgrades are really reasonable, too. They have 3 different paid plans: Basic for $14.94/ year; Pro for $24.95/year; and Premium for $49.95/year. Note – those are all per year, not per month!

As I was browsing their site, my favorite page is the Invitation Wording Ideas page. I’m always trying to come up with a cute and clever way to word an invite, and this page has some really great ideas. I also really like the Party Ideas page. There are so many ideas in there. I’m getting some really great ideas for the kids’ parties, and the ideas aren’t going to break the bank, either!

All in all, I think it’s an excellent service, and one that I will use many times over the next few months. It’s a great way to keep things organized and send out super cute email invitations to friends and family.

Do you want to try PurpleTrail for yourself? You can always go sign up for the free account and see how easy it is. But, why stop at free when you can get more?

PurpleTrail is offering one reader a Basic Plan account!

    This is so cool, I love that Purple Trail has a manager/tracker tool. If only it could do the shopping and housecleaning. Thank you, Angie.
    Please stop by my blog, I have two awards for you, thank you.
