You already own a lot of frying pans and forks.
When you got engaged and began to plan your honeymoon, you knew you didn’t want duplicates. “Let’s sign up for Honeyfund,” she suggested. She had to tell you what it was — a free honeymoon (and wedding) gift cash registry. It was a great way, she had said, to make sure you received gifts you could use — not more mixing bowls, steak knives or towels. Plus, she explained that people loved the idea of giving you something they could watch you use as you posted your life on Instagram. “It’s kind of like they get to participate in the honeymoon,” she said.
“Hmmm,” you muttered. “Aren’t honeymoons just for the two us?” “Silly you.” She shook her head at your obtuse point of view.
At last she tried to explain. “My bff was gifted her entire honeymoon to Thailand on Honeyfund by friends and family — a hotel room, riverboat trip, exotic cocktail, airline ticket and pad thai dinner at a time. They didn’t have to spend a dime!” she exclaimed.
“Not a dime.” Now you understood. You loved the idea. “It’s like having a pre-paid honeymoon,” you summed it up, looking as rakish as possible. She just grinned.
You’d already decided on a dream trip to Mexico. Your plan was a jaunt to two destinations: Hilton Los Cabos Beach and Golf Resort and Waldorf Astoria Cancun. So, what a surprise when you set up your account to discover that Honeyfund was collaborating with Hilton to host a sweepstakes called “Take the Honey and Run.” It turns out that couples using Honeyfund for their Hilton honeymoon can receive a plethora of perks and exclusive benefits. “Count us in!” you crowed. Even more enticing, to launch this new partnership with Honeyfund, Hilton is hosting a sweepstakes. The winner will garner five nights at the Hilton Vallarta Riviera All-Inclusive Resort, in an Ocean Front Master Suite, plus all meals and beverages.
“Wait, if we win (you asked) would that be our honeymoon or a pre-honeymoon?”
“Does it matter?” She said.
