Holiday shopping? Here’s $50!

I recently discovered a site called HowAboutWe for Couples. DON’T LAUGH, it’s not what you think!

Basically the site offers a variety of interesting dates for couples: brunch with booze and bowling, couples cedar enzyme baths, private fly-fishing lessons, at-home camping…you get the idea. You browse their list of dates, choose the ones you like, and go! Easy and fun.

While the actual dates are only available in certain cities, you can also use the site for gifts, as the “at home” dates they offer are packages delivered to your doorstep…which can be great to give as unique presents.

They always have a few amazing deals on the site, but the best part is that right now they are offering a $50 credit that you can use towards your first date. This was the deal I got when I signed up a few months ago, and it can create a freebie (or deeply discounted) situation!

I chose a BBQ meal that serves four, delivered to my doorstep. Because of the coupon, I only paid $11:

how about we BBQ

It really was only $11!

Amazing, right?!

If you are looking for an interesting, offbeat gift (potentially for free!), check it out. (Don’t forget to cancel before your first month is up – otherwise you will pay $18/month. I was planning to cancel, but I have ended up sticking around because they’ve got some pretty great deals…but the monthly charge is something to be aware of).

I hope you find something great.

(Note that I do get a referral credit if you use one of the links above. I really appreciate and thank you for your support!)

  1. Good deal – unfortunately not available in the MD/DC/VA area yet. Looking for a way to get past this. Do you have a link directly to the pig of the month?

  2. FYI – I actually notices hte Pig of the Month is expired. A couple of other options:

    http://couples.howaboutwe.com/dates/800-love-is-art-new-york

    http://couples.howaboutwe.com/dates/883-ultimate-date-night-love-kit-nyc

    KINKY!!!

  3. this service is only for 4 cities. yet now they have my email address. are you getting compensated for each email obtained?

      liv – If you don’t live near a city that they serve, you can still order a date package similar to the Pig Of The Month. Right now they’ve got a few featured in every city (and they are always adding more). I do not get a referral credit for each email obtained – only if you decide that you like the service and want to try it out. I think it’s fun and some of the offerings are pretty intersting. Also, it’s a free $50!

  4. i’m in MD and signed up – picked up the brooklyn home brew kit delivered to my door – thanks Kendra! I saw another ‘deliver to your door’ one for chocolate pretzel making kit.

    One question for Points Pixie (is your name Kendra?) – i couldn’t find anything about a recurring charge/membership fee – they ask for a credit card to order the brew kit even though there was no cost since it was less than $50.

    If you go under ‘membership’ tab at the top – there is a ‘gift membership’ button which says you can gift a membership for $50 for 3 months.

      TJ – The charge to keep your membership going is $18/month. Good info about the Brooklyn Home Brew kit! And yes, my name is Kendra but I will also answer to Pixie Points/Points Pixie 🙂

  5. Woo hoo. Thanks! I’m not sure if this offer applies, but How About We also has a singles site where you can purchase a date and invite another person on the site to join you, or see who’s offering dates and take someone up on it. A twist on traditional online dating.

  6. Don’t forget to cancel before 1 month trial is up – $18/month after that.

      TJ – I was planning to cancel, but it turns out that they actually have really good deals on a regular basis, so I have ended up keeping my membership alive!

  7. Hmmm…unable to access the site; it is “grayed out.” When I click on the “Sign up” or “Sign in” link, nothing happens. Any suggestions?

  8. Took advantage of this too! Thanks!

  9. The pretzels look good, will give it a try, thanks!

  10. Not real happy to have given them all my info, only to find out that they are not yet available in my city! Would like to cancel out, but see no way to do that.
