8 Services (And Deals) That’ll Make Your Life Easier
From pet owners to parents to those who like to cook (and those who don't), we’ve gathered nine exclusive deals that will save you time and money.
Butcher Box’s meats are flash frozen at the peak of freshness, packed with dry ice, and shipped directly to you each month. That means you get the highest quality meats available to make dinners at home feel a litle more like going out! Each box contains 100% grass fed beef, organic chicken, or heritage breed pork delivered directly to your door. Each box comes with 7-10 lbs of meat and works out to $6.50/meal.
Perfectly portioned ingredients, new recipes every time, and step-by-step instructions—Blue Apron makes cooking easy for those of us who don’t have time to run to the grocery store or meal plan.
"I was a little worried about getting fresh ingredients delivered to my home but I was pleasantly surprised. I am really happy with Blue Apron overall. I have tried 3 of their meals- Cod Tacos, Greek Pizza and Spring Chicken Fettuccine. All 3 recipes were very easy to make and it was all delicious. The ingredients were all super fresh and I couldn't have been happier. I had another box come in and FedEx was unable to deliver it on time. I reached out to Blue Apron because the meat was now spoiled and they issued me a full refund. That is going above and beyond! I'm now waiting on my 3rd box and I'm so excited. I also like that the recipes featured are things I would never think to cook at home so I feel adventurous."— Kimberly S., Kenner, LA
Cost: $59.94/week (2 people, 3 recipes); $69.92/week (4 people, 2 recipes); $139.84/week (4 recipes, 4 people)
Barkbox is a monthly delivery service that brings your furry friend a collection of 4-to-6 all-natural treats and innovative toys that revolve around a surprise theme.
“We love our BarkBox thus far. Our puppy has LOVED the toys, and they have even managed to keep her interest beyond a couple of days! The toys we've received haven't been basic plush toys, they've all had some special element. Of course, she has liked the treats as well - but that's not tough to accomplish! We definitely think the value of the box is well beyond the $20 we pay for it - and think it'll actually save us money in the long run by keeping us from making as many trips to the pet store to find ways to spoil her! If you're a Milkbones and kibble kind of person, I doubt BarkBox is for you—but if you have a habit of spoiling your pup anyway, GO FOR IT!” – Kaitlyn K.
Cost: $20/month for 12 months; $24/month for 6 months; $29/month for 1 month
Answer your Palate Profile and get wine recommendations delivered to your door each month. Go with Winc’s suggestions or make your own selections from a changing list of reds and whites.
“I cannot say enough good things about Club W! My boyfriend is working toward becoming a certified sommelier and we drink A LOT of wine. This is such a great way for us to try amazing wines at an affordable price. And not to mention, their customer service is beyond what I expected. I decided to opt out of an order for this month due to the fact that I will be traveling a lot and a glitch in the system caused my order to go through. As soon as I received a "your order has shipped" email I contacted them and Nate was so helpful! He emailed back within 24 hours and assured me that I could return the shipment and receive a full refund to my account. Thank you so much Nate and the Club W team!” – Mackenzie K., Athens, OH

"I've made $300 with ebates, just by shopping at stores that I would normally choose anyways. The rebates really start to add up when you pay for airfare/hotels/rental cars through ebates retailers. They often share exclusive coupon codes to certain retailers, just to make sure you get an even better deal. I shop at Sephora online frequently and they are consistently 4% cash back on purchases, but often they get bumped up to 8% back... Woohoo! Plus they are starting to link your card info (it's totally voluntary) so that you can earn cash back when you go shopping at a mall. Ebates really just sweetens the deal time after time." - Kirby M., Springfield, OR
