Blue Apron Free Week: Is Blue Apron Worth a Try?

Blue Apron Free Week
Have you seen those colorful, happy farm-to-table commercials on TV? You know the ones with cartoon-like characters, fresh and delicious-looking produce and happy faces throughout? Blue Apron is one of the most popular companies providing these farm-to-table experiences without having to head to the supermarket. In fact, the company is serving more than five million meals each week.

So, to answer the question posed in the title, yes, Blue Apron is worth the try and here’s why…

Blue Apron’s Cost

Right away I’ll tell you that Blue Apron isn’t a family-friendly meal plan. You’ll get three two-person meals a week for about $60. You can also get a Blue Apron meal plan for a family of four. For a four-person plan you’ll get two ($69) or four ($140) meals for the week (that is only a few dinners a week).

Blue Apron Free Week
That may seem like a lot of cash to shell out to only feed you and your partner (or your family) a few days out of the week (my initial thought). However, when you compare the Blue Apron quality of product and amount they are sending you you are really getting a decent deal. In fact, once I looked into it, making these dishes at home with comparable fresh ingredients would cost twice as much as Blue Apron is charging.

So, now that we’ve gotten the monetary items out of the way, what is the Blue Apron experience like?

Preparation of a Blue Apron Meal

When it comes down to it, that is exactly what Blue Apron is: an experience. You receive fresh “farm to table” produce in the mail with recipes and instructions on how to prepare the food. You’ll get to try new and exciting foods and feel accomplished because you’ve cooked it yourself.

Blue Apron Free Week
Preparing a Blue Apron meal is extremely easy too. Each delivery is accompanied with recipes for the items in the box. Each recipe card has the name of the dish and ingredients on the front. Turn the card over and you’ll see easy-to-read step-by-step instructions on how to prepare the meal (which is great if you’re learning to cook).

Delivery

Preparing the meal isn’t the only easy step either. Ordering, receiving and cancelling your Blue Apron deliveries is easy too. All you have to do to sign up for Blue Apron is register on the site. The company has also thought out their shipping process as well.

Blue Apron Free Week
You can log in to Blue Apron and change your delivery date based on your specific schedule (they’ll even deliver on Sundays). Opening and unpacking your Blue Apron order is comparable to Christmas! When it gets to your home each item is packaged individually with ice packs to keep it cool. You simply open the box and pick up layer by layer of fresh organic produce.

If you aren’t happy or need to discontinue your shipments for any reason you simply send the company an email and receive a cancellation link in return. You can also skip weeks if you don’t have the money or don’t like the upcoming recipes. It is truly hassle-free.

Conclusion

In my opinion, Blue Apron seems like a quality product for a reasonable price. You get high quality produce without having to brave the supermarket crowd (and that’s enough for me to want to continue weekly shipments). If you’re interested in giving the services a try you can sign up during Blue Apron free week or keep an eye out for promotions and then decide if you’d like to continue with their weekly deliveries.

Find Stores That Owe You Cash: A Paribus Review

Paribus Review
I, like many people, love to shop online. It is a great way to save money and avoid the crowds at the stores. What if there was a way to save even more money by shopping online?

Well, there’s an app for that! Paribus, a new app, is helping online consumers get cash back from stores that owe them money. While this sounds like a win-win situation, I had a few questions. So, I sat down to write a Paribus Review to give you all an idea about the app’s user-friendliness and usefulness.

A Paribus Review

As with any other money saving app, results may vary when it comes to Paribus and how much you’ll actually get back. In my book, it’s worth the time to sign up and give it a chance though. According to some of the app’s earliest users, there has been great success in getting cash back. Some users have even quoted $80 of savings at one time.

But how much time does it take to download and how involved do you have to be in the process?

It is Easy to Sign Up?

Everyone is busy so taking time to sign up for an app or website that may not ever save you money seems like a waste of time to some. However, according to the Paribus website, it only takes about 15 seconds to sign up (this may differ if you have slow app download times). You’ll also need to provide your credit card infomration and your email, but sign up is pretty easy.

All you have to do to sign up is link your email address that you have all your online receipts sent to. Once you’ve done that, sit back and relax. Paribus is going to take care of the rest.

How Does Paribus work?

Essentially the app scans your inbox for any online shopping receipts and helps save you money when there’s been a drop in price. These price guarantees are something that most stores offer anyway but they make you work for it. Instead of you sending the emails, making calls to save the cash, Paribus does it for you. 

  • How much does it cost? Although downloading Paribus is completely fee and you don’t technically pay for its services, Paribus does take 25% of the cash you get back. For instance, if you get $80 back from an Amazon purchase you will only receive $60. Paribus will cash in on $20 of your refund.
  • What stores does Paribus recognize? Right now Paribus is tracking about 20 of the nation’s largest retailers (this includes sites like Amazon, Macy’s, Walmart and Best Buy).

Paribus retailers

Paribus Promotional Period

Since Paribus is still a relatively new company they are having a promotional period where if you refer a friend you get 5% off their 25% fee. If you refer one friend, you will only have to paid 20% (two friends, 15%; three friends, 10% and so on). If you get in during this promotional period and refer five friends you can get Paribus completely free during the promo period.

Should You Download Paribus?

When all is said and done, downloading Paribus is a no-brainer. You don’t have to do anything but sign up and continue shopping the way you usually do. Paribus does the rest and, although they take a cut, the app still presents a great opportunity to save money (something we all need to do a little more of). 

So, what are you waiting for? Download Paribus and start saving!

What is Gamer Optic Nadeshot’s Net Worth?

Optic Nadeshot's net worth
We all know someone who plays video games so much they could make a living doing so but how many people actually make a living that way?

Matthew Haag, better known as Optic Nadeshot, has been able to make a living playing his favorite game, “Call of Duty.” In fact, he’s become a millionaire! So, what is Optic Nadeshot’s net worth and how did he earn so much money just playing video games?

Who is Optic Nadeshot?

Optic Nadeshot, as stated previously, is a professional gamer who has been able to make his way to the top through the “Call of Duty” video game series. What made Nadeshot so successful, however, is the rise of competitive gaming.

The 24-year-old gaming professional got into competitive gaming at just the right time. Although it is a relatively new concept, he was able to capitalize on it quickly. He began as a competitive amateur playing Halo 2 and, by the time he was 16, he was making his professional gaming debut playing Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare. 

Since June 2010, Haag has been a member of Optic Gaming, a community for professional gamers. He took the captain seat of Optic Gaming for a year and during his active time in the community he focused on the Call of Duty games. Each COD game that has been released has been played (and conquered) by Nadeshot.

Just about every gamer out there has played “Call of Duty,” so how did Matt Haag become so successful?

What is Optic Nadeshot’s Net Worth?

Optic Nadeshot's net worthOptic Nadeshot’s net worth sits at about $2 million. He is pulling in about $1 million per year and most of it is from his competitive gaming career. The average 24-year-old is lucky to make five figures a year, let alone seven!

Nadeshot really made the best decision of his career when he decided to focus his time on the Call of Duty series. COD has become one of the most famous video games in the world. Gamers have logged millions of hours playing the game, making Haag’s skills coveted. He pulls in revenue from his Youtube channel, which has practically 3 million subscribers, as well as cash prizes from competitions in which he participates in throughout the world.

Cash isn’t the only thing Nadeshot is raking in either. He is often times showered with gifts when he goes to gaming conferences. Some of his “perks” include cars and free hotel stays while he’s in the area. Many of the sponsoring companies offer the pro gamer VIP treatment.

Haag’s skills aren’t limited to gaming either. He’s also published a book called “OpTic Gaming: The Making of eSports Champions.” It has been relatively popular among gamers. He’s also moving on to bigger in better things in the years to come.

In 2015, Nadeshot stepped down from the President seat of OpTic Gaming and said that he is making a career change but he won’t be disappearing from the world of gaming. He hopes to become a full-time video game content creator and co-owner of OpTic Gaming. So, instead of playing against Nadeshot you may be playing a game created by the famed gamer in the years to come.

How Much is My Hair Worth?

how much is my hair worth
Saving money can be difficult. Oftentimes we look for new and innovative ways to make some extra cash to stash away. I’ve been trying to save up cash for a substantial emergency fund but have found it difficult. So, I started looking for new ways to make money.




I stumbled upon plenty of articles about strange ways to make money, how to make money selling your body and even how to sell your hair. The last one was what caught my interest though. You can sell hair? How much is my hair worth?

What Kind of Hair Can You Sell?

First, you’ve got to have nice hair to be able sell it. No one will want to buy damaged hair. However, if you’ve got 10 (or more) inches to chop off and your hair is healthy, you’re in business! Most buyers are looking for “virgin” hair which means it has never been dyed, washed too much or subjected to high temperatures. So, how can you sell your hair and how much is your hair worth?

How to Sell Your Hair

Selling your hair is actually pretty easy, especially considering what an odd task it seems to be. As previously stated, you’ll need to cut at least 10 inches off your head. You can do this yourself or get it cut professionally (Great Clips cuts it for free if you cut 10+ inches).

Now that you’ve chopped your hair you can go about selling it online. You can go to Buy and Sell Hair and Online Hair Affair to post your hair for sale. Decide which site you’d like to make the listing on. The listing should include details like the length, texture, hair care habits and information about your lifestyle. You’ll pay a one-time listing fee for your posting but it’ll be worth it once you make a ton of cash from selling your hair.

How Much is My Hair Worth?

Purchasing long, healthy hair is actually pretty expensive. On the sites mentioned above, hair has been priced in the high hundreds and even low thousands. You can always compare your hair to other listings on the site as well to determine a fair price for your hair. If you’re still wondering “how much is my hair worth,” you can use this calculator to determine how much you should sell your hair for.

As I said earlier, I am not able to sell my hair for extra cash because I’ve dyed it quite a bit. However, it turns out that it is a legitimate way to make money (and quite a bit of it). If you’re looking for a way to make extra money and have 10 inches to spare, sell you hair!

Would you sell your hair for cash?
