How can Cushion help me?
Cushion Bill Pay gives you more visibility and control over your finances than ever before. Many people get hit with bank fees—such as overdrafts and late fees—due to cash flow problems. With Cushion, you can consolidate and track all of your bills and BNPL payments in one place, plan your budget by reviewing what’s coming down the pike, and avoid overdraft fees by temporarily pausing payments that might overdraft your account and resuming them when you are ready.

What is BarkBox?

BarkBox is a subscription service dedicated to making your four-legged companion happy. Once you create an account and provide basic information about your dog, you’ll start receiving monthly subscription boxes. The classic subscription contains two toys, two treats, and a chew, all according to your dog’s needs.

BarkBox allows you to modify the boxes in between deliveries. There is also a monthly theme that determines the box contents. And if your pup has allergies or you have other household restrictions, no problem! BarkBox will tailor each box to fit your preferences.

How Much Does BarkBox Cost?

BarkBox charges by how often you elect to receive a box, not by the box contents. You can opt for a yearly, semi-annual, or per month subscription.

All the subscriptions run $23–$36, depending on the frequency that you choose. You can also purchase an individual box starting at $8 as a special treat to your four-legged friend.
