 Working with Brands

Jenna has worked with a number of brands for reviews, sponsored posts, events, media campaigns, and consulting.


Jenna has been a great partner to work with, both as a Groupon Affiliate and a partner in planning conference events.  Not only did she make herself available for pre-planning calls and responded promptly to emails, but she also did an amazing job on the day of the conference event, helping with set-up and hosting duties.  Jenna was a pleasure to work with, and someone I would definitely look forward to partnering with in the future.  Her bright personality and conscientious attitude are extraordinarily great qualities in a partner- Julia Kozuck | Affiliate Merchandising Analyst | Groupon

Why do I go bargain hunting?

I have always enjoyed searching for deals.. Who doesn’t?  Currently, I am home on maternity leave from my full time teaching position. After going from a family of 3 with two paychecks to now a family of 4 with one paycheck, we decided that in order for me to extend my maternity leave we needed to find ways to save. Thanks to couponing, I was able to extend my 3 month maternity leave to now 4 years.

    I am contacting you because I would appreciate your help in promoting our organization. This could include liking us on Facebook (Budget Meals, Inc.), following or retweeting us on Twitter (@savefoodmoney), mentioning Budget Meals in your blog, or adding a link to Budget Meals’ website to your site as well. Any help would be greatly appreciated. We just want to help as many families in need as we can
