Update: I got my card in the mail today! I went to Emergency Essentials in Provo and got two #10 cans of Egg Bowtie Noodles for $4.99 each, so after my free $10 gift card  I paid $0.28 OOP!  Read below on how you can get your free $10 gift card too!

Gift Card Giveaway

Simply try Emergency Essentials free Food Storage Analyzer™ tool and write a quick review of it on your blog to receive a free $10 gift card from Emergency Essentials. Everyone gets their free $10 gift card good for their canned food items, which can be bought online or at one of their in-store locations!

You will receive a free $10 Emergency Essentials® gift card by doing the following:

  1. Go to the Food Storage Analyzer™ and create a free account – Click here to go to the Analyzer.
  2. Try out the Food Storage Analyzer™ – Click here for Analyzer instructions.
  3. Write a review of the Analyzer and post it on your blog and
  4. Important: Copy and paste the code in the box here (under step 5) to the bottom of your review post – this will add the red button to  the bottom of your post.
  5. Send an email to with a link to your blog post. Put ‘Blog Post Giveaway’ in the subject line of the email so that we can verify your post and the button. Be sure to include your address so we can mail your gift card.

I love this analyzer. Like most mormons I am trying to get a one year food storage in case of job lose, famine or natural disasters.  I am a shy of my goal though; I used the analyzer and found that my current food storage is 130 days for my family of 4 people.  At least I know where I am at now.  What’s your food storage goal?  And what are you getting with your free $10 gift card?  I’ll let you know once I get my gift card what I get!

Make sure to clip your free $25 gift card to Rite Aid coupon in today’s paper!  Mine was in the Daily Herold. Just transfer a prescription to Rite Aid and make sure to scan the coupon at checkout to get $25 on a Rite Aid gift card.  Has anyone tried to use these at a Walmart or Shopko pharmacy? Both stores take competitor’s coupons, let me know if it works!!!

Wow, have you activated your December UPromise eCoupons yet? 42 new coupons worth $48.55.

Here’s how eCoupons work: You login to and click on “coupons & deals” then “Grocery eCoupons”.  Then you select ALL the eCoupons.  Make sure to type in your rewards card #’s for Smiths, Albertsons, and more. Once you do that you won’t ever have to do it again. That’s it. When you go shopping and swipe your members card, your eCoupons will register to your UPromise account and you can use that money for your children’s college.  I have my Debit card added as well so if I am shopping at other places I can get rewards using it as well.

Really, I don’t bother matching these eCoupons up to sales because I just activate them all in about 1 minute and if I happen to shop at Smith’s or Albertson’s when I swipe my card I just automatically get those savings in my daughter’s college account.  Sometimes I use a lot; sometimes none. Never hurts to have them activated though!

There are some hot ones this month, including $5 for 2 Similac Baby Formulas,  $1 off Nestle Chocolate, $.75 for Little Debbie (combine this with the $.75 on right now or the FREE coupon they recently sent their Facebook fans in the mail.)

Posted: November 24, 2009

smiths_logoWow! Save up to $50 at Smith’s!  For every $100 gift card to Smith’s you buy, you get $10 off at checkout, up to $50! If I shopped there frequently, I would just buy as many of these as I could afford.  Smith’s gift cards here.
