    Hi thefrugalmrsjones,

    My name is Haira and I am sending you this e-mail on behalf of Cordskinz Marketing/PR team to introduce our new product that solves earbud tangles once and for all.

    Tangled earbuds has been a problem for many, if not all earbud-users with no easy solution. Other products aiming to liberate earbuds from their tangled existence require folding, organizing, or tying earbuds in certain way…too much work!

    My team just launched Cordskinz to resolve this issue. Cordskinz provides three main values 1) Easy Anti-Tangle, 2) Cord-Protection, and 3) Ability to style earbuds.

    Check us out at
    Or our FB page

    Our product is brand new in the market and we would love your review.

    If interested, we ask for you to use it, review about it on your blog and/or youtube channel, and share our product with your viewers through your social media sites. When responding, please include your mailing address and two Cordskinz color preferences.

    Thank you and let me know if you have any questions.

    Haira and the Cordskinz Team
