Happy Saturday! Time for another Saturday Mail Call!
Well, it was a nice week here at the Begley house. Keith the Mailman was pretty good to us. He came through with a nice variety including, grocery, health & beauty and magazines! Here is a picture of all the treasures I received in my mailbox for this week:
Magazines: Bloomberg Business, Martha Stewart Living and Outdoor Life
Health and Beauty: Cepacol Hydra Lozenges 4 count package, two 2 ounce tubes of Suave Cocoa Butter & Shea lotion, one 6 ounce tube of Freeman Chocolate & Strawberry Clay Mask
Grocery: Seven coupons from www.mycokerewards.com for a free 12 pack of any Coke product and Two Wild Ophelia All Natural Smokehouse BBQ Potato Chip dark chocolate candy bars!
I shared my sources for finding free things a few posts ago. I hope that some of you have taken advantage of this. Concerning the magazines, most of these come from taking short surveys on www.rewardsgold.com. They reward you with enough credit to pick free subscriptions of your choice. Martha Stewart Living is my favorite, but I have also ordered many others including ESPN the Magazine for my son and he liked it. The Cepacol Lozenges and Clay Mask came from www.luvocracy.com. A couple of months back, they were giving a $10 credit to anybody who registered with their site. The money could be applied toward shipping as well, so I finally used it to order the mask last week, which came to $9.98 shipped. When it arrived this week, the box also contained the Cepacol. The Suave lotion came from www.pinchme.com, so go there and sign up now! This is a site that will send you a box of two different products to try, and all you have to do is complete very, very short questionnaires about the products on the pinchme website. Of course, my free 12 pack coupons came from www.mycokerewards.com. If you or someone you know drinks Coke products, it is definitely worth your time to sign up and enter codes. Now for the Smokehouse BBQ Candy bar....yes, this sounds delicious yet wrong......not something I would normally purchase. It is also from www.pinchme.com. It is also listed on Amazon.com (http://www.amazon.com/Wild-Ophelia-Natural-Smokehouse-Chocolate/dp/B00AUN58GI) for $5.99 per bar!!! Now, I love chips with chocolate cake, so this may be right up my alley.
Estimated values of the above:
- Candy bars = $5.99 * 2 = $11.98
- Chocolate & Strawberry Clay Mask = $3.99
- Cepacol Lozenges = about $1.00
- Suave Lotion = $1.00 * 2 = $2.00
- Martha Stewart Magazine = $4.99
- Outdoor Life Magazine = Current offer on www.outdoorlife.com is $10 / year, so one magazine = $0.83
- Bloomberg Business Magazine = Current offer on www.businessweek.com is 26 issues for $15, so $0.58
- Coca-Cola 12 Pack coupons = $3.50 (average) each * 7 = $24.50
TOTAL ESTIMATED VALUE OF STUFF FOR THIS WEEK: $49.87
I hope this encourages you to search out some free stuff of your own. Not only is it fun, but a huge budget helper!!! Have a fun, frugal and fabulous evening, from our house to yours.
