OK - here's my last question for the evening.
I just received my latest offering from the I Love Inns spin-off marketing group. It's a new trident sugerless gum.
The instructions specify that you either place it "in-room" or hand it to guests.
This, to me, seems fraught with pitfalls. In the past I've used their products as turn-down items - so the Olay was WONDERFUL, however, handing gum to guests or leaving it on their pillow has way too many personal hygiene implications for me.
Thoughts ??????

I'm not getting anymore offers from them. Possibly because I wouldn't commit in perpetuity to take whatever came down the pike from them.
No gum, too much could go wrong with that.
I still have 2 cases of cereal. Months expired now so can't put it out for guests. Still handing out Olay packages.

Hey, I just signed up with them! Where are my offers?
Gum as they leave..."This is a free promotion thru ILoveInns, a lot of folks like to keep gum in their car (purse, pocket), so I thought you might like it." They can always decline. I wouldn't give it out while they're staying with you though...gum is a pain to clean up.

Hubs is quite happy to polish it off.
If he gets tired of it, I might make some mini muffins for snacks when it cools down here.

parting gift only! best idea!
gum stuck in hair! (peanut butter rub and then wash) but ugh!!!
gum stuck on pillows cases, in towels, deliberately stuck under tables ... why do people do this ? i don't know ... and for those who must take children, that's where it will end up.

Tipsy - are these promotions from a different marketing company than Iloveinns? There was another company that was calling around with promotions after the great cereal debacle. What's the name?

Which reminds me, it's time to do the underside of the nightstands inspection. That's where I found a was of gum last time. Not noticeable when cleaning, but very visible when lying in bed! Hubs was 'modifying' the nightstands for me when I found it. Yuck!

I figured the best way to find out (and fastest) was to ask Deborah. It is the Interlopers - Brand Connections - that is doingthe Gum.

I hate finding Jolly Rancher wrappers on the sidewalk outside - I know they come from our guests.

I knew it wasn't Iloveinns - they don't have any promos listed right now - but I couldn't remember the name of the other company.

The little flags from the Hershey's kisses are everywhere. I have to look in my decorative crockery to make sure they aren't being used for trash cans.

Wait a minute...the dogs brought in the gum and stuck it to the underside of the breakfast table? What kind of dogs are they? Chew-huahuas?
