People often ask how I find so many freebies. One way is by visiting My Savings Freebies page.  For example, I just saw on My Savings that today Tide is doing another giveawayat 3pm Eastern Time for their Tide Stain Release. Like Tide on Facebook and click the ‘Challenge’ tab. There will be 10,000 samples.   I got this last time and the packet came with a bunch of stain releases! That’s a great deal.  They also have printable coupons.

But what is different about the My Savings site?  They have a call-in freebie section! So if you are out of printer ink, you can’t print more freebie coupons, you can checkout this section for companies who offer freebies/coupons if you call them!  This is something new to me and I can’t believe I didn’t know there was a list of places you could call companies to request your freebies and coupons as well.  There are a lot of magazines on that list too.

I posted about this previously, but it seems people were having a hard time winning. Well here’s a great tip I’ve heard to have you win those Cars 2 Movie Tickets on Walmart’s Facebook page:

  • “like” Walmart’s page
  • Click on the “Mater’s Secret Mission” tab
  • Click on the “Get Started” button, and select a secret agent (a Facebook friend) to receive your message.
  • These are supposedly re-set every hour, so make sure to submit your message one minute before the new hour.
  • Sometimes the “Sorry all the vouchers are gone” never goes away. Not sure why. But I had my message wrote, and encoded..then I pressed “send” at 1 minute to the hour (like 1:59 etc) and got them!
  • You may get free coloring book pages.  That means you’ll have to play again to try to win.
  • Another tip: Try playing late at night when everyone else is sleeping.

*Limit of two FREE movie ticket vouchers per Facebook user.  Voucher code valid until July 31st or until Cars 2 is no longer showing in theaters, whichever comes first.

(Thanks, Shining 2 Save!)

I am so excited about this new feature! Saving Towards a Better Life is sending over some Walgreen’s transactions for under $5 for us each week.  Now what I would do in this case is keep the remaining $5 RR you get at the end of the transaction for next week’s list, so you can pay almost nothing out of pocket for next week!

Prices do not include tax and Transaction #1 assumes you have the (3) $1 RR left from last week’s transactions. *Cuckoo readers, sorry this is the first week of me being sent these deals so we missed out on last week’s, but hopefully you have some RR’s laying around!  I plan on posting these every week from now on so we can get in the groove!

Walgreen’s Scenarios:

Transaction #1
2 Pocket Folder with prongs x 3, $.39 (your filler items)
Hyland’s Teething Gel .5oz, $5.00
G-U-M Dental Care 2 pack micro or super tip toothbrushes or Floss 200 yds, $2.00
Clorox Clean up with Bleach 32oz, $2.79
Use the $1/1 Hyland’s Teething Gel, Earache Drops, or Allergy Relief printable
Use the $1/1 Clorox Clean-Up Spray printable (on Facebook) or $1/1 Clorox Clean-Up printable
Pay: use (3) $1RR from last week
Final Price=$5.18 OOP and a $5, $2 and $1 RR back

Transaction #2

2 Pocket Folder with prongs x 3 = $.39 (your filler item)
Hyland’s Teething Gel .5oz – $5.00
Use the $1/1 Hyland’s Teething Gel, Earache Drops, or Allergy Relief printable
Pay: use $2 and $1 RR from previous to pay – DO NOT use $5!
Final Price=$1.39 OOP and another $5 RR (you’ll have $10 RR now)

Transaction #3

W Women’s 6 Blade Razor System – $3.99
Air Wick Freshmatic or Double Fresh Scented Oil or Neutra Air Freshmatic – $7.99
Clorox Clean up with Bleach 32oz – $2.79
2 Pocket Folder with prongs x2 -$.26 (your filler items)
Use the $1/1 Clorox Clean-Up Spray printable (on Facebook) or $1/1 Clorox Clean-Up printablep
and use one of the following coupons:
$4/1 Air Wick Freshmatic Ultra Starter Kit printable
$4/1 Air Wick Freshmatic Ultra Odor Detect Starter Kit, exp. 7/24/11 (SS 06/12/11)
$4/1 Lysol Neutra Air Freshmatic Starter Kit printable
$4 off coupon from 7/10/11 SS
Pay: use your $10 in RR
Final Price=$.23 OOP and a $3.99, $3.00 and $1.00 RR back ($7.99 total)
You can stop here for your maximum RR in your pocket for the lowest OOP or keep going if you want more products

Transaction #4

Buy 4 Dove Men+Care Body Wash 12-13.5oz or Active Clean Shower Tool, $15 total
Corner Office Legal Pad 50 sheets or index cars 70-100 pack, 39c w/in ad coupon
2 Pocket Folder with prongs, $.13
Use 2 B1G1 Dove Men+Care Body and Face Wash or Active Clean Shower Tool, exp. 7/24/11 (RP 06/26/11)
Pay: Use all your RR from Transaction #3
Final Price=$.3 OOP and $5 RR back

Total: $7.11 OOP for $46.12 worth of product, plus $5 RR’s for next week!

Then, if you want to do the EOS shave cream deal, you could buy 2, use your $5 RR, pay $1 and get $4 RR back and end the week with $4 RR.

If you want to do it all in one BIG transaction (you can only get ONE of EACH RR deal per transaction) then get all the RR deals above ONCE. Use the matching coupons. You’ll have 11 items and 8 coupons (including the (3) $1 RRs from last week) so no fillers will be needed.
You’ll pay $29.27 OOP and get $23.99 RR back

Thanks again,  Saving Towards a Better Life

The first 10,000 people to head over to Rite Aid’s facebook page can score a coupon for $3/1 Sally Hansen Crackle redeemable at Rite Aid.

I have tried this and it works pretty good, if you know it’s crackle polish it looks cool.  But if you didn’t know it was supposed to be crackle polish, it may look like chipped nail polish.

Thanks, Eric

I love their lettuce wraps! The brown dipping sauce is the best.  I actually order this as my entree when I go out to eat there because it’s so good and I don’t want to share it as an appetizer 😉

Head on over to P.F. Chang’s coupon page on Facebook and “Like” them, then click on the “Click here to sign up” button.  You will have to then click on “Allow” Then submit your email address to be emailed a coupon for FREE Lettuce Wraps with any entree order.  This coupon will print 7/6 only, but is valid until 7/31.

I just searched my Kids Eat Free database and was sad P.F. Changs didn’t have  a kids eat free day because this deal would be cuckoo if they did!

Right now on Pilot’s facebook page you can print a coupon for a free 44 oz. drink!   These are valid at Flying J locations as well.
