I have  received word that many of you got in! Please let us know how it’s going for you.

Well if you didn’t get in last time, it’s available again. Some people leave the program, so you never know what market they are looking for so if you didn’t get in try again.

What’s she talking about? Nielson is the largest US company that tracks consumer data. Sign up here to become a home scanner and scan items you buy (at home with the scanner they give you) and get paid for it.

This week only you can save $3 on the Taste of Home cooking school, normally $12 now $9. This will be Tuesday, March 30th.  I am probably sending my husband to learn to cook! There will be cooking tips, demonstrations, door prizes and special gift bags.  I have heard this is a big event. Since I am part of the Savvy Shopper network of bloggers, you all can go here to get the special discount too!

Posted: February 23, 2010

Save up to 30% at your favorite stores.

Gift cards are ca$h (to stores)
+ you can combine them with coupon$
= save huge $$$ at retail stores and restaurants.

Example: Foot Locker $200 Gift Card selling for $160 at PlasticJungle.com.

If someone gives you a retail, restaurant, or movie theater gift card you don’t want, you can also sell or trade it at PlasticJungle.com.

Prices vary from $30-400. Plastic Jungle has Walmart, Target, Best Buy, Kohl’s, JCPenny, American Eagle,  just about everywhere I could think of except Home Depot which is where I need one for!  Luckily, I was able to set up an “alert” and as soon as they get one I’ll get an email.

We just bought a house last year with no yard (I mean, it is just dirt with no trees or anything) so we have a massive summer coming at us and I’m sure a discount at Home Depot would be used up quick.   Last year we installed the sprinkler system ourselves (6 week project, 50% savings over hiring a landscaper to do it) and we are doing a garden plus all grass ourselves this year too.  Pictures and updates to come!

Home Depot can be expensive.  Waiting on big sales there will save you enough money for a month’s worth of groceries.  I just subscribed to their new email alert, which they only send when they have special offers, clearance or promos. That way I can buy at the lowest point.  Or should I say I tell my husband he can go get that tool he has been eying.  Go here to sign up.

I just found Smilebox, my new favorite program that lets you do free custom cards that can be emailed or uploaded to your blog!  Get your ecards here; remember you can choose your own photos, home videos, plus your own music. You will have to download the program to your desktop and then double-click on it to start it up, from there is is super easy to use.

Here is one I just did for the Grandparents for Valentine’s Day:

There is an option to upgrade where you don’t have their logo on things, but I just did the free option.

I love checking my mail and email and getting random free samples or coupons.  Vocalpoint sent me coupons for $3 off Kashi cereal, and full-size Kashi cereal was $3 at Walmart so I got it free.  I am sure glad I didn’t spend my money on that stuff! I couldn’t even pawn it off on my starving college-student brother!  I think we ended up trashing it. Really, it was that bad. Here are two sites I get a lot of freebies from by signing up for their mailing list:

Home Made Simple Home Made Simple: they email and mail you special offers, samples, coupons, and sweepstakes offers from brands like Cascade, Dawn, Febreze, Mr. Clean, and Swiffer.

Vocal PointVocalpoint: Mails coupons and free samples directly to your home.  Has users offer reviews of the products so you know if they are good or not.

Anyone else got free samples of things and decided you were glad you tried it before you bought it?
