Have you been meaning to check out that new Ethiopian Restaurant on H Street? Dying to be the first to try Rose’s Luxury? Unfortunately, it can be difficult to plan a date night when you’ve got kids running around. Finding a sitter takes time, and it’s important to find someone that you trust. UrbanSitter, an online and mobile service for parents and sitters, makes booking a trusted babysitter as easy as making dinner reservations. And, if you enter below, you could win a $50 babysitting gift card.
UrbanSitter was founded by a group of parents who had the idea of using technology to facilitate sitter searches. UrbanSitter uses your social profiles to connect you with sitters through people that you know. You can either search for sitters by date and time or you can post a specific job and then choose from your results. Each sitter has his/her own performance marketplace, where you can see reviews from parents, their number of repeat customers, video clips, response time to requests, skills, and more. UrbanSitter harnesses the power of social recommendations in a space where a friend’s recommendation is critical.
Don’t wait around for the next holiday to go out. Sign up for a free UrbanSitter account or download the UrbanSitter app — and soon you can start enjoying impromptu date nights. Make sure to enter the contest below, new UrbanSitter members have a chance to win a $50 UrbanSitter gift card.[sc:raffle2]
