My Video Debut and Easy Savings



It seems like every time I’m at Zoka coffee I always see at least 5 people waiting in line on their smartphones, BUT NOT SAVING!  Just like it pains someone with OCD to have missed voicemails, I can’t stand being a bystander to a missed savings opportunity! I just can’t do it. It’s like I have a spidey-sense for overpaying… a savings-sense, if you will.  So to help me sleep a little better at night, I made this video to show just how easy it is to save with Pirq.


To be honest, I’ve never really made a lot of videos before this and didn’t know what to expect. I found out that making the video was actually a lot of fun! Shooting a movie starring yourself can be a scary experience. I know that the camera is on me, and I want to get my words right. Shooting a movie on a smartphone is super easy, but you have to have a partner with steady hands to shoot. Thanks to PIRQsweetie for helping me put this together!


As PIRQhero, I never miss an opportunity to share the message of saving. In this video, I wanted to show how you don’t have to go out of your way to get great deals around you. I truly hope that no one would miss out on a deal because they didn’t feel confident with the technology. Pirq is easy to use and I really do hope this video shows that.


I wouldn’t consider myself particularly camera friendly, but I gave it a try for the sake of saving. It was a weird experience to watch myself on videotape; it definitely made me more self-conscious.  But after a few takes (don’t worry, a blooper reel is in the works), I got some footage that I liked.With that said, I’m always open to constructive criticism.    :)  Check out the video on Pirq’s Facebook wall and tell me what you thought about it. Showing how easy it is to use Pirq comes with sweet rewards. Not only did I get 30% off my Milk and Cookies Ice Cream bowl at Ben and Jerry’s in Kirkland. I also had a fun time shooting the film with PIRQsweetie and learning what goes into a good video. You don’t have to let me have all of the fun though! Get together with your friends and make a video showing how easy it is to use Pirq – and share it on our Facebook page!  I can’t wait see what you come up with!
