CONGA: Grabr international delivery service.

Grabr is a new service that will pay you to use your unused luggage space for deliveries. You just go to a retail store to buy the desired item and transport it along with your regular flight. You get $10 free for signing up. You also get $10 when a friend signs up and $50 if they make a delivery.

Grabr can also be used as a form of manufactured spending. For instance, delivering a surface pro to someone for $2500 seems like a good MS strategy. The only drawback is that it will be unique to where you’re traveling.

This is a Conga Thread, so use the most recent link available before posting yours.

Here is my referral link

Interesting service and you're right about the MS if it's a big-ticket item. But... how good are they about protecting the traveler from instances in which the buyer claims to not have received the item when they actually did?

You get the money up front. It's the buyer taking the risk.

But what if the buyer claims to have not received the item? I read the money sits in escrow until they report that the item has been delivered.

As with any courier service, document the delivery with a written receipt as well as video. The buyer can contact Grabr at the exchange to avoid issues.

Might be interesting to start a non-conga thread where people can share their experiences. Right now it doesn't look like there's any orders for any of the cities I'm flying between (DTW, PHL, YYZ) - hopefully some will pop up. I get free checked bags with Delta, so this seems like a good way to earn back that cc annual fee.
