Sometimes kids only accept one type of product, and sometimes adults only accept one type of product. Here at Homemaide we give rewards to people who share some of their shopping experiences with us — reach out to us today to get some of those rewards today. Here’s one example:

My son needs to take Iron supplements due to a deficiency of that mineral in his blood. Some of the iron supplement gummies that people sell hideous. Some times my boys wont’ even eat them even after the gummie and mixed with more sweet or savory snacks. Both of my boys used to need to take these. My younger son grew out of his iron deficiency, somehow, according to the lab tests at the doctor’s office.

iHerb used to be the only retailer who sold the palatable iron gummies, complete with a bit of sugar sprinkled on to each gummy. Recently Amazon recently added it, so the price is a little less than iHerb offered the gummies at.

Vitamin Shoppe is where I get the Omega-3 fish oil — chocolate orange flavor for my youngest son and orange flavored for my older son; Vitamin Shoppe has subscription services (recurring order) so I can set it and forget it, which I love the convenience of!

You know how many are in the bottle and how many you take every day — 1 serving per day per child until the next order and the next supply arrives in October.

I also shop at Home Depot for specific items, non-subscription, free delivery which is great because bulky items are easier to be delivered than to pick up in a Honda Odyssey of a certain age and occasionally questionable functionality.

Now, contact lenses I have to order at least once every two years…from different providers each time, whichever is cheaper. There’s a new kind. My health insurance is helping pay for. $500 for 6 months of contact lenses from 1-800-Contacts. No deal — too expensive.

In the past I tried Kaiser Permanente lenses then CostCo, and now I’m trying Hubble which has a better price. Annoying thing is you have to send in your prescription, the lens providers have to verify your Rx with your optometrist, then create the lenses, then QC them, and…then they will send them to you.

A few years ago my family and I went to Chincoteague and swam at the beach. It was beautiful — the sand, the surf, the kids, the weather — all of it. Near the end of our trip I accidentally lost my glasses in the ocean. nSo — that led us to the nearest Wal-Mart where we waited in The eye glasses shop there for over an hour — for my health insurance provider to confirm my identity, my Rx, and so on. Not a great way to wrap up our trip, for sure.

Anyway, Hubble is a subscription service. I have three boxes of my right eye contact lense, so I don’t’ need a full order of lenses for both eyes also dependent on me agreeing to a subscription service.

$19 per box at Hubble and $29 per box from Wal-Mart; Google suggested Contact King which is offering them at $15 per box plus $9 processing fee per order not per box — still cheaper than Hubble and I’m getting exactly what I want — 2 boxes for the Left Eye only. Subscription services for contact lenses make sense if you wear contact lenses every day but I don’t.

I wear contact lenses when I ‘m not too tired ot pt them in. Days when my allergies don’t’ let me put in my contact lenses.

1–800-Contacts wants you to order in bulk and once you order $150 worth, they give you a 20% discount ($30 or about one free box of lenses). You can do a one-time order or subscribe. They also let you take a picture of your prescription instead of entering each data filed and hoping and praying you don’t mis-type on the tiny phone alphanumeric keys.

They also offer a video option.

2 boxes come to $121 at checkout, after the discount is applied BUT they used a brand that doesn’t work for me so now I have to go back and choose a different brand

12-pack in each box which is double the amount that is usually in each box, hence the higher price.

Different brand, AccuView 2, which I LOVE is $33 per box but does not include any savings but it does include a $20 rebate if you buy 7 or more boxes. Hmm.

Now my phone’s camera keeps defaulting to shooting video, not taking a still picture. SO Now I get to start over, entering all my shipping and billing information

Why the hell doesn’t Amazon offer these?

$60 for 1–800-Contacts to send you 2 boxes with six in each box

It takes me 6 months to use a whole box (with 6 in each box).

You’re supposed to change them every two weeks but I change them once a month since I don’t wear them all day, every single day. So Contact Lens King is the cheapest. Let’s check out shipping and other fees like Hubble added on right before my presumed checkout

$16 processing fee added per box. 2 boxes at $15 each should be $30 cause I forgot to remove the Oasis brand (wrong bradn for me) in my cart. That brought the processing fee down to $6 total ($3 per box of left eye-only AccuView 2 contact lenses.

Cheaper wins this time!

I wonder why the processing fee is so much higher for Oasis brand lenses? Perhaps because some people feel they get higher quality when they pay more? Oasis is a newer kind compared to AccuView 2. Newer equals better or more cost? Sometimes but I’m not willing to take that risk when it comes to a prescription for things I put in my eye.

I had this fun purchaser’s journey while making breakfast for my four year old, while my 9 year old cleaned up the living room after completing his piano practice but before he and I played catch, before we wait for his school bus to arrive

Why not just set an order at a frequency of my choosing?

The contact lens retailers don’t give me that option.


THE BOTTOM LINE

HOMEMAIDE helps you sell your style and buy the things that make you smile, seamlessly.

Any item you pass in your daily routine (contact lenses, pens, hens, iron supplement gummies, Omega-3, ice cream, cars,), any fun detour or side attraction you stop at while on a road trip (Wal-Mart, CostCo, Optometrist outlets, a petting zoo, Soft Serve Ice Cream, museums and their never-ending gift shops) — ALL you have to do is upload a picture or paused video screenshot of that to your existing social media sites and Homemaide will send you a commission for every purchase your friends make.

AND — they don’t have to buy a luxury car for you to earn a commission (but if they do, YOU will earn a commission from Homemaide on those larger purchases(!!!). Think about that for a second:

HOMEMAIDE helps you sell your style and buy the things that make you smile, seamlessly. $18.9 Million Bugatti “La Voiture Noire” Is the Most Expensive New Car Ever Sold. A carbon-fiber one-off built for one valued customer, this 1479-hp machine pays tribute to the 110th anniversary of Bugatti with nods to the Type 57. https://www.roadandtrack.com/car-shows/geneva-auto-show/a26638740/bugatti-la-voiture-noire-most-expensive-new-car-for-sale/

That’s not a bad commission based on you posting pictures, videos, and other content on social media sites. If you’re wondering how you might get paid a commission for such a sale — or if your friends buy real estate near where they see a picture of you vacationing — you might be wondering: “how can I get a commission from a sale like that? I haven’t paid 7 levels of Realtor Board dues (City, County, State, Regional, National, and more) or car sales licensing board dues.” Fortunately, Homemaide doesn’t use over-regulated, Centrally-controlled fiat currencies who’ve been debased more than the ancient Roman Denari to give you your commission. So, no worries! Reach out to us today to learn more!

If you’re friends rented the cheapest economy car or the cheapest car they could find off of Craigslist, or the Rocky Road that’s on sale at 2 for 1 prices at the local grocery store, you’d still earn a commission off that. If they bought the item that was in your picture, video, or voice-automated update (like a rental car, Airbnb lodging, hotel stay, Lyft, Uber, Via trip) — they can purchase that (even as a e-giftcard) and ship that to a family member, relative, or friend. And after that purchase, yes, YOU will also earn a commission from that purchase.

If they bought stock in Honda, Toyota, Tesla, Ford, GM or one of the top Rocky Road Ice Cream producing companies (Nestlé USA, Dean Foods Co, Saputo Inc, Land O’Lakes Inc, Dairy Farmers of America Inc, Schreiber Foods, Kraft Foods, Agropur Cooperative) — YOU would earn a commission off of that purchase. If they bought any item from the pictures you uploaded, you’d earn money. That’s the magic of Homemaide.
