It’s Friday, which means there is a new video up on my YouTube channel! In this vlog you’ll see my Ebay sales for last weekend, hear me talk about not listening to online rumors, and see Lucy and Charlie’s November BarkBox! Note that there won’t be a video on Friday, November 23; not because I didn’t film one but because I accidentally deleted it. Oops!!!
Lucy and Charlie got their November BarkBox this week, and as usual it was a big hit! While Lucy doesn’t really play with toys, like Max, Charlie loves them; and his sharp little pug teeth have been tearing through them like crazy. So it’s always great to get new ones for him. And of course both of my dogs love the treats!
The November box came with both hedgehog and boots plush toys; with BarkBox, you can select your box subscription based on the size of your dog, so my pups get the “Small” box, and the toys are always the perfect size for them. They are also always very sturdy and hold up to my ferocious chewers.
Also included were packages of turkey cranberry treats and jerky treats; again, both are smaller pieces that match with my small breed of dogs. And there was also a bully stick, which I break in half so that my dogs can share it.
In addition to monthly subscription boxes, BarkBox also features a BarkShop section on their site full of treats and toys, many of which have been featured in past boxes. All of the items are of the highest quality; most are made in the USA and are organic and grain-free. For Christmas I will go on and just order treats and toys directly from BarkBox as I trust the quality and already know that my dogs will love everything.
The November Love With Food box arrived this week, but it wasn’t until this evening that I actually had any time to open it up! Love With Food is a monthly subscription box service that sends out healthier snack foods; included are non-GMO, organic, nut-free, vegan, etc. treats. There are three subscriptions to choose from: Tasting, Deluxe, and Gluten-Free. I get the Deluxe box, which this month came with the following:
- Maya Kaimal Chickpea Chips
- One Potato Two Potato Sweet Potato Chips
- Chimes Toasted Coconut Chewy Toffee
- Go Organically Fruit Snacks
- Pure Growth Organic Cheddar Monkeys
- Glutino Gluten-Free Pretzel Twists
- Emmy’s Vanilla Bean Organic Coconut Cookie
- Everly Strawberry Lemonade
- Kashi Chewy Nut Butter Bar in Salted Chocolate Chunk
- Heavenly Organics Mint Chocolate Honey Patties
- Made Good Apple Cinnamon Granola Bar
- Enstrom Almond Toffee
- 2 Pieces Ginger Candy
- 2 Pieces Blood Orange Candy
As usual, this month’s box did not disappoint as it was filled to the brim with lots of fun foods, many of which are completely new to me! I always share this box with my dad; I love that I can fill his snack caddy up with healthier choices. From this month’s box, I know he’ll like the Strawberry Lemonade and coconut treats!
Love With Food subscriptions start as low as $7.99; and you can cancel at any time. They donate a portion of the proceeds to help fight childhood hunger in the US and around the world to organizations like Feeding America and The Global Food Banking Network. Plus you also earn points from purchasing boxes and through referrals that you can redeem for cases of products.
I am so excited to share with you my new Amazon Influencer Page! This is a new program Amazon has just released for social media influencers, i.e. people like me who make money online, including with social media. For now, the program is only open to those with a YouTube channel; but it sounds like they’ll be expanding the program for those who aren’t on YouTube but do have Twitter, Facebook, and/or Instagram.
If you are familiar with Amazon’s “A-Stores”, the Influencer program is similar. A-Stores allowed those signed up as Amazon Associates, Amazon’s affiliate program, to create a stand-alone website with links to Amazon products. If you had an A-Store and someone went through your link to shop on Amazon, you’d earn a commission, just like you would with a direct product link on it’s own. However, Amazon recently announced they were discontinuing with A-Stores, effective tomorrow, 10/27.
However, the new Amazon Influencer Pages are pretty much identical to A-Stores in terms of function; the only difference is that they don’t appear to users as a stand-alone site, but are instead right on Amazon.
For someone like me who not only has Kindle books and Amazon Merch tee shirts available but also recommends Ebay business products on Amazon, my new Amazon Influencer Page feature is perfect. Now I can have all of the products I’ve both created and use under one URL. This will allow me to easily refer people to one page where they can see my books and shirts plus Ebay supplies.
If you are already signed up as an Amazon Associate and have a YouTube channel, be sure to apply for an Amazon Influencer Page asap. The site says it may take several days for approval, but I was approved in less than 24 hours. I’ll now be adding my Amazon Influencer Page link to all of my social media accounts to hopefully drive traffic there to earn affiliate income!
I recently had the opportunity to review the Passport To Beauty Subscription Box; check out the video below this post to watch it! Passport to Beauty is an every-eight-weeks subscription box that delivers exclusive beauty products along with handpicked items from different destinations handpicked by global guide Shalini Vadhera. Boxes are only $49.99 with FREE shipping and include a wide variety of beauty, home, and food products from locations around the world.
I was super impressed with their first box, which featured products inspired by and from Barcelona, Spain. Each box contains over $200 worth of products; I am keeping some and gifting others, including adding some for future giveaways. I love boxes such as this that provide a huge variety of items that can be kept or shared!
There is a new video up on my SeeAnnSave YouTube channel, which you can also watch below! I recently reactivated our Love With Food subscription, so I thought I’d open up the box on camera. Love With Food is a monthly subscription box service that sends better-for-you snacks, many of which are organic, low-to-no-sugar, gluten-free, non-GMO, and even vegan.
There are three subscription choices: Tasting Box, Deluxe Box, and Gluten Free Box. The cost of each box depends on the length of the subscription you choose. You can cancel at any time. Note that you also earn points through your subscription and referrals which can then be used to purchase cases of full-size products. And for every box Love With Food sells, they don’t a meal to a person in need! 🙂
