This Model Mom Ordered Formula to Her Hotel Room With a Single Text Message

Staying in a hotel without a 24-hour concierge? Consider the GoButler service

When traveling with children, it's inevitable you will forget to bring something. Let's just hope it's not their blankie or lovie or...underwear. But even if you did forget a baby blanket for them to sleep with at night or a fresh pack of superhero undies, there's a service that can help you find replacements.

It's called GoButler.

GoButler is a free, text-based service that works very similar to a hotel concierge or a virtual personal assistant. (Coincidentally, the texting operators are called "Heroes.") GoButler's simple mission is to make your life easier. Hungry? Text GoButler for some pizza delivery. Need a hotel room? Text GoButler to put you in a hotel within your price range and star preference for the night. 

Or if you're like model Coco Rocha and realize you've checked into your hotel room but have run out of baby formula, text GoButler to get you the exact brand and amount that you need.

 

(Nevermind that Coco received hate comments for feeding her baby formula. #TolerancePlease #WeAreAllMomsDoingOurBestHere.)

 

GoButler is currently available "Anywhere in the USA, Canada, the United Kingdom, Germany, Austria and Switzerland."

Now, if you're like me, you're probably wondering how much using GoButler will cost you. Especially since it seems so similar other delivery apps like Postmates and Instacart (which I use frequently when I need groceries in a hurry. Use my referral code to save $10 off your first order.) But somehow, someway, GoButler says you only pay for the items that you purchase.

The company, however, does plan on making money soon and it will probably do that through third-party affiliations where they will get a small commission from the merchant they use to fulfill a guest's request.

But as it works today, the only cost of GoButler is however much those superhero undies cost.
