Apps I Love: Getaround

LifestyleVeronica Arrieta2 Comments

Getting around without out a car can sometimes be tough! Although we live in San Francisco and take an Uber everywhere, there's the occasional time when we need to meet friends for dinner, have a wedding or just want to get out of the city. So, instead of the hassle of renting a car from Avis or Enterprise, we use Getaround, which let's people rent their cars when they aren't using it. All you have to do is search for cars nearby your location, pick out which car you want to drive and send a request. Once approved, the Getaround car kit helps you find and unlock the car just by using the Getaround app. 

All Getaround rentals provide car insurance and they make sure to screen every renter. It's really that easy. Last week I had to drive up to Sonoma for a meeting so I rented an SUV on Getaround that was only one block from me. It's so convienient to pick-up-and-go and then return because you just park it in the parameters they give you, lock it up using the app and walk away. 

Getaround is currently in San Francisco, Berkeley, Oakland, Portland, and Washington DC. Get $25 off your first rental here

Apps I Love: BloomThat

I'm always on the search for new apps and when I find an app I love, I tell the world…well not the world - just you (but you get the point!). I've been sucked into this tech bubble while living in San Francisco and am constantly learning about emerging tech trends and discovering new apps. So I've decided to start a new series where every month I feature my favorite app. 

With Valentine's Day only two days away, I want to introduce you to this month's app: BloomThat

BloomThat provides on-demand flowers for $35 in 90 minutes or less. And yes, it works! You pick out one of their handcrafted bouquets, starting at $35, submit your billing information, delivery address, and voila! About 90-minutes later a courier will show up with bouquet in hand wrapped in burlap with a handwritten note from the recipient. The photo below is an actual bouquet that my husband sent me on our two month wedding anniversary.

I've included more detail about BloomThat below.
