Laura Recommends

Dear friend,

I created this “recommend: page to easily list recommended services, products, and companies that I use and/or those I know are valuable. This way you can quickly find great products and services all in one place. You can save TONS of money all from one page!

Disclosure: There are some affiliate links below, but these are all products I highly recommend. I won’t put anything on this page that I haven’t verified and/or personally used.

With Love,


Money Saving Websites and Apps

Ebates: Sign up for a website like Ebates where you can earn free CASH BACK for just spending like how you normally would online. All you do is click on a store that you want to shop through (they have TONS of stores such as Groupon, Kohls, REI, Toys R Us, etc.), and shop just like how you normally would. Ebates makes a commission for referring you to the store you just shopped at, and they give you some of that money back as a thank you. Plus, when you sign up through my link, you receive a free $10 cash back!


Shop online from some of your favorite stores and get cash back!

Ibotta:  Ibotta is a fun and exciting way to earn cash every time you shop – plus it’s free! It works in over 80 retailers nationwide, and Ibotta users have already earned over 5 million dollars.  I enjoy using this website especially for grocery shopping.  Lots of name brand items online and off.  Click here to receive a $10 bonus.

AirBNB: My preferred way to travel is to stay in short-term rental vacation homes such as Airbnb (this will give you a $20 Airbnb coupon code for your next stay).  We’ve used this many times and  the Airbnb vacation home rates are usually comparable or cheaper than a hotel, plus you usually have more room and often there is a kitchen.  It’s also nice because they are pet friendly and  if you have several people going on vacation with you, you can split a house for much less than it would be for everyone to get a hotel room.   In addition to this, you can also make money by renting out your home.

Uber: Safe, reliable and easy.  We use Uber for travel when we are out.  It takes the stress off of renting a car when we’re out of town.  This has become our “go to” source for travel.  Click here to get a $15 off your first ride coupon.

Paypal:  We use this site for just about everything.  It makes online purchasing so much easier when paying through paypal.  Get a her$5 credit here. 


Blue Apron – I LOVE this meal delivery service so much. We have fun trying new menus and not having to leave home to shop. Everything I need to plan my meals is included and the exact amount. It’s been such a time saver as well as budget saver!
