Hmmm, see what dear old Vinny (Yola's founder) has been up to lately...

I've just now installed the app on my phone and signed up. There are at least a few dozen stores on the list of those 200+ that they offer and which I have bought cards from in the past so it seems to reason that instead of going to the brick and mortar store to buy the cards to do it from Gyft instead and support a founder of Yola at the same time.

Only downside is that for some time I won't be able to use it as cash is tight but when I get rich off an invention (lord willing, next year the checks start rolling in) I will be a frequent shopper of gift cards and now have a pretty cool avenue to do that from anywhere that has cell service.

Maybe Yola should have a gift card too (and add it to Gyft) so that anyone can gift a website package for friends and family via their phone.

Anywhooo, just thought to pass it along to our Yola forum family what one of our very own is up to. Even if it is a seldom heard forum member. Ahem, Vinny, ahem... Oh wait, I am a seldom heard member too, darn... LOL

Cheers...

Hi Ed, welcome back! We've missed you. Best of luck with your invention - please fill us in when everything is settled, perhaps when the checks start rolling in you can take the time to catch up with us.

Hi Rose Marie, Thanks and thanks again...

Unfortunately, I have been unable to share what exactly my invention is as I have been under a non-disclosure agreement since November. Suffice it to say, it was selected in the top two (sadly, I was second) out of nearly 6000 inventions that were submitted this last year to/by a very well known (global) company.

It has been an uphill battle to get one of my many dozens of inventions in front of the right people. I hope that it simply is my time to reap from all those years of not giving up. Knock on wood, I'll be set for life and then some.

As soon as it hits the marketplace I will be shouting from the rooftops you can bet on that. ;)
