Some of them offer some sort of deal- a free meal or dish with purchase, a discount on a purchase etc…
Others just send a creative birthday greeting, which is a nice gesture and can also be pretty cool…
This year one such happy birthday email stood out.
Lufthansa sent me a “birthday greeting from the cockpit”.
I wasn’t exactly sure what this meant so I opened up the e-mail to find out.
When I clicked the link it led me to this page:
I filled out the page with my phone number and waited for the captain’s call!
The phone rang within a second and a video played simultaneously with a message from the captain from the cockpit wishing me a happy birthday and some other pleasantries.
The best part was just before the end of the call, when the co-pilot held up this thoughtful sign!
This was a very nice job on Lufthansa’s part to make their birthday message a bit more interactive than the average birthday e-mail message!
What’s the best e-mail you’ve received from a company wishing you a happy birthday?
