A few weeks ago, I wrote about a deal from a dating and relationships company called How About We. In my post, I described how you could use the $50 credit for new members to purchase an “at home date” that could turn out to be a super value.
They’ve actually got a bunch of interesting-looking “Going Out” dates as well, such as a Woodcut Map Class, Flying Trapeze Lessons, or a Private Chef’s Table at an incredible restaurant. (Note that the “Going Out” dates are only available in certain cities).
However, if you are looking to maximize the deal factor, the key is to select a date from their “Staying In” collection (and these are available nationwide). A few weeks ago, I purchased a BBQ meal for four that was delivered to my doorstep; my total cost (after applying the $50 new member credit) was $11. It was delicious.
Recently, a friend of mine ordered the Peanut Butter and Company sandwich-making kit. She had a $50 credit and figured she would use it on something she would have bought anyway. Look at the massive amount of peanut butter they sent her! (Not sure if this amount is typical, but she was thrilled). She ended up giving me half of it. They also included three jars of jelly, a book, and a few other goodies. Because of the $50 credit, she got it all for free!
I just think this is an incredible deal. I’m not sure how much longer they are going to offer the $50 credit, so if this site piques your interest, you might want to sign up sooner rather than later.
My next choice is going to be a Luke’s Local meal box. This is showing up as a free date for me (once you are a member, you get one free date each month). The box will be delivered to my doorstep, and includes a Jablow’s dinner cut, seasonal vegetable selection, cooking staples, a pantry item, flowers, veggies and dip, an artisan snack, and shrubs from Bar Jars.
Things to know:
• If you decide to sign up, your first month is free, then afterwards you pay a monthly charge of $18/month. I was planning on canceling, but the service has actually ended up being fun (plus it’s a fantastic value), so I ended up sticking around.
• If you are single, make sure to sign up for the Couples section anyway, because that is where all the dates and deals are. Not sure why they think that single people don’t like dates and deals as well (?!).
• If you sign up using my link, you will get a $50 credit, and I will get a credit as well. Thanks!
How about you? Would you try How About We?
