Review: EatSmart Precision MaxView Digital Bathroom Scale

Falling off the healthy eating train in the past years, I decided to jump back on. No help from Nutrisystem this time, but with the tips I did learn while using that system. I'm down about 15lbs. in the last 2ish months. Tracking the weight wasn't easy without a working scale in the house. Thankfully, the great people over at EatSmart (yes, the ones I've reviewed plenty on this website before) sent over one of their newer products for me to test out.
I received the EatSmart Precision MaxView Digital Bathroom Scale. When I opened the packaging to take the scale out, all I could think about was the display. At 4.5", the LCD display is huge compared to my last bathroom scale. It's also backlit to make it even easier to read in the dark. The  thick tempered glass sits on a silver colored frame, which comes equipped with the battery area (on the bottom) and 4 sensors.

The Precision MaxView Digital Bathroom Scale certainly is sleek and modern looking, but the best part is how easy it is to use. Auto-calibrated and equipped to handle up to 400lbs., this scale is ready to use right out of the box. Pop in the 2 triple A batteries, step on, and get your weight. There is a handy little button on the bottom of the scale that allows for 3 different modes; Pounds, Kilos, and Stones.

A pleasant surprise was the EatSmart Body Tape Measure that is included for free in the box. This time around, I've started taking measurements with the body tape measure, it is much better than just taking pictures to see my progress. I'm all for easy, and although losing weight isn't, this scale is. Out of the box and in full swing in less than 2 mins. The scale is very sturdy, and not an eyesore. The glass and frame make it look very elegant, it is low profile and easily placed near a corner with a door swinging right over it. I appreciate the wonderful customer service I receive at EatSmart and their great products I've had the pleasure to review over the years.

Disclaimer: I was NOT paid for this post, however I did receive the product in question,  from the company or their representing  PR company,  free of charge in exchange for my review. All opinions are my own and I have provided a fair and honest review. I received no other compensation for my review nor was I under any obligation to give a positive review.

Get $50 Cashback When You SIgn Up For Discover It Student Card! Promotion!

In an effort to continue building my credit that I started last year, I made a wise choice earlier this month. I signed up for a Discover It Student credit card and was approved. For any students looking to get a god student card with amazing cashback rewards, this card is definitely the way to go. I am new to the Discover family, but from my first call to activate my card, I will remain faithful. I've never had a better CR, she sounded more exited to activate the card than I was!

Discover It Student cards comes with a great cashback program, every quarter (4 in each year) you get 5% cashback on purchases that fall in the quarter's categories. For January - March you get 5% cashback for the category "Restaurants and Movies". Now, this great category includes fast food chains like Burger King, Taco Bell, etc. And movies include Netflix subscriptions, beside purchases made at major theaters like Cinemark, Regal, and more . So you get cashback for things you already commonly pay for, how great is that?

Now to the point, Discover is offering $50 to anyone who I refer, so if you'd like to add to your credit, or start building credit, I suggest you apply for the Discover It Student card, or even the non-student Discover It card! To be eligible for the $50 cashback promotion, you must click my referral link here, and just make 1 (one) purchase within 3 months (it can be $1 purchase, doesn't matter!). And who doesn't love free money? :)
