A couple of months ago, I was selected to receive a RAN Bonus Box from Rakuten Affiliate Network, the company we use for our affiliate links. The box was so fun to get and I received so many amazing products and discovered a lot of great new brands. When they announced their travel-themed RAN Bonus Box, I couldn’t wait to get it. Stacie and I travel a lot and we both have some pretty big trips planned for this year. I was so excited to see what Rakuten and their partners had in store for us and I was looking forward to developing relationships with more brands. I was not disappointed when I opened my RAN Travel Box. It was packed with goodies from some amazing brands and everything was perfect for the travel theme.
One of the things I love about being a blogger is discovering and connecting with different brands. Even in this day and age when internet shopping is so prevalent and there are forums dedicated to the latest and greatest beauty and fashion products, it can still be hard to learn about new companies. I’m part of Rakuten Affiliate Network and they’ve recently started a program where they send out a RAN Bonus Box each quarter to introduce their bloggers to new brands and begin partnerships. It’s a really fun program and I was fortunate enough to receive their Q1 RAN Bonus Box which featured products from six different brands, most of which were new to me.
