Have you taken the Home Advisor for a spin yet? If you have, then you know that it’s a simple, interactive tool that helps you save time and money while helping you build your Shopping Annuity! If you haven’t, read on for everything you need to know about using the Home Advisor.
You don’t have to have advanced technological skills to use the Home Advisor; simply navigate to the landing page and click “begin.” The Home Advisor will first ask you to choose categories you purchase products for regularly, like Lawn and Garden or Pets. Once you have selected the applicable categories, the Home Advisor will walk you through every part of your home and prompt you to select which products you use most. Once you have completed your checklist, the Home Advisor will provide you with value comparisons between our most popular ma® branded products and competitive products. The value comparisons differ from product to product and focus on demonstrating the benefit of the ma® product versus leading products, their cost, and your total savings.
Let’s say the Home Advisor prompts you to start with the kitchen. Begin by selecting the cleaning products you purchase regularly, and the Home Advisor will then create a custom list of ma® branded products based on the categories you selected. The Home Advisor may select multiple ma® branded products for one category, which gives you a larger selection to choose from.
While no two product detail pages are alike, you can expect to find a short product description, product comparison chart, and the product price and Cashback value on each one. In addition, the product detail pages include an “Add to MyList” button, which you can toggle back and forth to select “yes” or “no” depending on if you want to add the product to your MyList or not.
As you go through the Home Advisor, check out the progress meter at the top of the page to see how much you have left to complete. Want to know how much potential Cashback you’ve earned? Take a look at the Cashback Value tally to the right of the progress meter. Don’t have time to finish the Home Advisor today? No worries; the Home Advisor will save your information so you can access your customized MyList later on.
Once you complete the Home Advisor, you can then view a customized MyList of your product selections. This is where you can select which products you want to add to your cart and which to save for later. If you don’t want to be bothered with re-ordering each product every month, check “Yes, Add to AutoShip” and we’ll do the re-ordering for you!
What if you don’t like the title of your MyList? Simply click “Edit List” to change the title and description of your MyList, and even choose a new cover photo from hundreds of stock photos. Once you have finished customizing your MyList, share it with the world using the social sharing buttons located at the top of the page.
