HelloFresh and Chef's Plate Ebates $22.50 cash back

Savings:
22.50
Hopefully not posted yet.. Was checking something on Ebates and saw that HelloFresh and Chef's Plate both have $22.50 cash back (regular $7.50). With the 50% coupons that float around for both frequently, this can be a really good price. At around $80 regular for the cheapest options -50% -22.50 that's about 17.50 for a box! Seems like a good deal to me. If I wasn't about to be out of the country I'd be all over it :(

I think everyone should consider the amount of waste these boxes have. I ordered goodfood and it was a food item inside a bag, inside another bag, inside a box. Multiply that by 10 or 15 items and it's a darn lot of plastic being used for no reason.

And I agree, the portions are ridiculously small.

you don't think your groceries are packaged like that before they are displayed?

I ordered HelloFresh once before and iirc they package with paper bags by meal. Saves a little plastic, but i suppose still bad in the long run

To be clear: I'm not saying no packaging -that wouldn't be realistic. But the packaging in some of these boxes is really excessive. Is it necessary to put a zucchini in a plastic bag, and an onion in a plastic bag, then put both into another plastic bag?

Use EBATES25 for additional 25 bucks off first n second box.

So 22.5 + 25 bucks off of first box. Only a pronto meal at 79.99 (no taxes), comes to 32.49 total for 6 meals (3 recipes, 2 people). That's not bad at all. Got 9 recipes to choose from (Pronto)

I have tried them before, portions r decent sized that I could bring to work the next day but obviously YMMV.

EDIT: there is also a 50% off first box for new members but that may void the cashback.

That's crazy, they're definitely full meals.

This deal was posted earlier today but got removed bc people were asking for codes.

The better deal is use code "cucumber55" for 55% off and use ebates through the app to get 27$ cashback.

The net cost comes out to 9$, assuming u take the pronto plan for 2people and 3 meals. This deal only works for hello fresh.

I would argue no.

Produce comes loose in a box which is put on display. The consumer then puts it in a plastic bag and then another plastic bag on check out. There's rarely another box after that.
The smarter consumer would use something like a reusable "box" (eg PC Green Bins or those collapsible crates that are on clearance at Costco) and place produce directly into it, eliminating 2 bags.

So at best you're saving at least a box.
At worst you're saving a box and a bunch of bags.

Originally I didn't like the packaging and there is a lot. The positive side is I recycle much more for everything now. I usually split the portions and take half for lunch the next day, but I rarely eat meals over 400 calories so it work ok for me.
