Well, I am pleased to report that CompetiTowel has responded to the throwdown request and I am fully confident that their comment on the original Chill Towels review was, in fact, legitimate. The comment was not from a customer, but from a representative at the company and while that wasn’t made perfectly clear in the way the comment was presented, they have now responded in a way that is both thoughtful and professional.
CompetiTowel had this to say:
“You’ll be happy to know that CompetiTowel has been created by a fellow female athlete who grew tired of using towels that had to be stuffed in your clothes or paper towels that really don’t help manage sweat. C.Towel is a hands free workout accessory designed for athletes of all ability levels. Whether you exercise outdoors or in a gym, this featherlight towel with a rotating, retractable device is ready when you are. Simply clip to your workout clothing, fuel belt, or racebelt and get moving. We are so confident that runners in your local group and readers of your blog will see the value of having an effective training accessory that we are prepared to answer your challenge and help a great cause at the same time in supporting TNT.”
“Our idea is simple and can be up and making fundraising money this weekend with very little stress on your part. We have set up a Promotion Code that your users can enter at the time of checkout on our website. For every order that we fill between now and the end of 2008, West Coast Fitness Products will donate $1 to your TNT fundraising effort.”
Pretty respectable and impressive of them, right?
So if you are interested in checking out their product AND supporting my fundraising, here’s what you need to do:
- Visit CompetiTowel and add your item to the shopping cart.
- On the final screen of checkout, enter the code, JillsTNT into the form and hit ‘Redeem’.
This promotion is good throughout the rest of the year. Hopefully I will have my own CompetiTowel in the coming weeks so I can test and review one. I can really see this being useful in a gym, especially for my husband since he likes to haul a towel around from machine to machine.
I want to thank the people at CompetiTowel/West Coast Fitness, they have been nothing but polite and respectful during this exchange.
