What You'll Get
Keepsakes take up a lot of space, forcing families to press photo albums between bookends and distill the memories into delicious but ephemeral beverages. Concisely store mementos with today's Groupon: for $40, you get $100 worth of digital transfer services and a PeggyBox reusable shipping kit (a $19.99 value) from PeggyBank (a $119.99 total value).
At PeggyBank, highly trained technicians convert home movies, photos, slides, and audio recordings into crisp digital files, then upload them to PeggyBank's private online vault. Rather than attempt to preserve disintegrating photos with mosquito-attracting tree sap, clients can convert memories to a semi-eternally impenetrable format. Send off an 8mm ($19.99) or 16mm film reel ($19.99/50 ft.), or a color photo ($0.45–$0.70/photo); pricing for each order varies by format and quantity, and clients can calculate costs here. Today’s Groupon also includes a PeggyBox, a reusable kit that allows users to safely send away their memory packages with free shipping.
PeggyBank repairs broken tapes, cleans obscured images, and even speeds up or slows down movies and sounds that have been chafed by the sands of time. These memento mavens will also cheerfully craft special projects, such as a poignant photo or video montage for a birthday, anniversary, or traffic-court deposition. After about three weeks, PeggyBank will return all original mementos to be displayed or fed to malnourished time capsules. Curious customers can peruse the FAQ page here.

PeggyBank understands that it takes a lot of faith to let go of your memories, even temporarily. That's why they designed a multi-step process to set their clients' minds at ease when sending precious VHS tapes, photographs, and rolls of film to be converted into digital files. The process begins with customers packing their treasured media into a PeggyBox, a crush- and shock-resistant container equipped with waterproof bags to safeguard contents from rain or water-balloon fights in the post office. Upon receiving the packages, PeggyBank's technicians assess the contents and provide an estimate before converting videos and images into the appropriate type of file, which are then hosted by PeggyBank for clients to download at their convenience. Finally, PeggyBank bids adieu to clients' original copies as they ship them safely back home.
