Freebie Friday!


If you happen to pop onto my blog on Thursday night....you will be in total shock pleasantly surprised to see that FF is up EARLY! I have to be at Drew's school all day tomorrow starting with Teacher/5th grade games at 8am, then I am giving his teacher a class baby shower at 12 and finally yearbook signing is at 1:30. They' ll learn a lot tomorrow, huh?





*****Today is Mega Swagbucks Day! Go here to sign up!******
Swagbucks has stepped up their program lately and are now giving away even more bucks and many more times a day than before. I think I have accumulated close to $25 in Amazon gift cards just for searching the web…something I do anyway! You are really missing out if you are not searching through Swagbucks!


~This week Toys R Us has Leapster Games on sale 25% off at $18.74. You can grab the $5 off coupon HERE and pay just $13.74 each. That is a great price for these.


~See Here is offering Buy One Get One Free mini photo books with promo code: minibook-2. The mini books are 24 pages.
These also have free shipping so it works out to $4.99 for both books shipped!
You can click HERE to create your book!


~Yikes it seems like these are coming every week now! Here is a 20% off Coach coupon for the Factory Outlets through Sunday!


~Yeah! There is a great new coupon available for Buy One Scrubbing Bubbles Toilet Gel and Get a Free 2 in 1 Scrub Brush kit.

They also have a ton of items available with a Buy 2 Get 1 Free sale! I saw a bunch of other deals- mini strawberry body butter is half off at $4.
They also have a few things under Final Sale- like eyeliner for $5. Head over HERE to have a look.


~Barnes and Noble is offering selected children’s and adult books at a great price right now- get 3 for $9.99!
It looks like shipping is about $6 unless you spend $25 in which case it is free.
You can try codes: Y8H7P3C for 15% off or Y3V4U3X for 30% off if you have other shopping to do. I don’t think it will work for the 3/$9.99 sale.
This might be a good time to select the summer reading books for the kiddos!


~It looks like you can request a free sample of CamoCare skincare right over HERE.
I am not sure exactly what product they will send- but hopefully this one comes!


~Walmart is having a free ice cream sundae event on May 22nd with Blue Bunny, Breyers, Hershey’s and Reddi Whip. The event is free from 11-4pm. And it looks like you get a sundae for free.
You can click HERE to see a list of stores that are participating by entering your zip code.


~Crocs has free shipping right now plus they have a new 15% off code- CROCSFRIENDS15.
They have several sandals and flip flops that are marked down as well as a lot of different styles in the outlet.
The new spring line from Crocs is also pretty cute- like these Genna shoes.
Head over HERE to have a look.


~Boost Kid Essentials are priced at $5.97 at Walmart stores.
There is a new Buy One Get One Free coupon HERE .


~Borders has the new summer reading program available for kids 12 or under.
If they read ten books total before 8/26- you just need to fill out the form HERE and take it in to a Borders or Waldenbooks store. You can then select a free book from the list of titles at the bottom of the form HERE.
Yeah for these stores encouraging kids to read!


~There is a new $2 off Ovaltine coupon available. There are actually 3 coupons for Ovaltine- 2 of them are for $1/1 and one for $2/1.
I can’t recall seeing an Ovaltine coupon before so grab it while you can!


~Well there is a really deal available right now at Catherines.com. They are offering a $20 off a $25 purchase promo code: 777006560.
(EDITED: I think the shipping might be $7 unless you pick it up in store.)


~They have Buy One Get One 50% off jewelry as well.
There is a coupon available for $3 off Chef’s Requested Bacon Wrapped Steaks. If you have printed it in the past, it may not have reset.
These are priced at or around $3.28 at Walmart- so .28 after coupon!


~There is a great deal on Super Mario Brothers for Wii from Amazon right now.
Here is the deal: The game is $34.99 with free shipping.
Then you get $10 credited to your account within 2 days of the game shipping. This credit can be used for a future video game purchase.
You also get $5 credited to your Amazon account for a MP3 purchase. You should get an email to let you know the credit is available.
So this works out to be a pretty great deal! Click HERE to have a look. You can see more details about the promotion by clicking on special offers directly under the price.


~There is a free iced coffee available from Au Bon Pain on Tuesday May 25th from 2-8pm with no purchase necessary and no coupon needed!
Sadly this is only available in a few markets:
New York, NYBoston, MACambridge, MAPhiladelphia, PAPittsburgh, PAWashington, DCChicago, ILProvidence, RIHartford, CTCleveland, OHColumbus, OHIndianapolis, IN
You can get the scoop from the Facebook page HERE.


~If you missed out last time this is such a good deal- you can head over to Expressionery and have a look at all sorts of custom stationary items. Take an extra 60% off AND get free shipping with promo code: DB2010.
Now this includes clearance merchandise so you can get little note cards for as low as $6.72 shipped! You can customize everything with your name, company name etc..
These either come in a nice box or a plastic sleeve (depending on the quantity you order) so they will make a nice gift as well! I think this would be a perfect inexpensive gift for any weddings you might have this summer!


~You can get a coupon HERE for a free limeade sparkler drink at Taco Bell. This is valid through 7/11 or whenever they have accepted 500,000 total coupons (so I would go sooner rather than later).
It appears no purchase is necessary and it is 1 per person.


~Oh yeah what a great coupon! There is a new Buy One Get One Free Athenos Hummus coupon available!
I see Athenos for as low as $2.50 so you can probably get a great deal!
(Whoops looks like you are supposed to like Athenos to get the coupon- so you can do that HERE.)


~They sent me an email from the Gap Outlet that says the entire store will be 40% off this weekend for adults and 30% off for the kiddos!
The email indicates it is from May 20-23 and the sale is at all US Gap Outlet or Gap Factory stores. You can click HERE to find a store near you.


~Barnes and Noble is offering a Buy One Get One Free Frappuccino drinks through 5/24 with coupon HERE.
This would be a great excuse to meet a friend to catch up! (Or just have them all to yourself- I won’t tell!)


~If you hurry over to Seattle’s Best and register for newsletters you might get something good!
They posted on the Facebook page that the first 10,000 will receive a freebie.
Click HERE to register- you want to look for a green dot and click that a few times until it asks for your email address. You won’t get a confirmation that you are in the first 10,000 so we will just have to wait and see!


~If you head over to Mayfield Ice Cream, you can select a Try Me Free rebate for the full value of the product to be refunded or (4) $1 coupons.
This offer is regional- so be sure to click on the rebate form first, it will ask for your zip code and tell you if the product is available in your area.


~There is an Energizer battery coupon available for $1 off any battery or flashlight. This is a great coupon to print since battery coupons are few and far between.
You can stack this with the $1 off Target.com coupon for any batteries or flashlights to get an even better deal!


~Don’t forget about the Tylenol recall on the MFA Facebook Fan page today that she already got a check in the mail! The list of recalled products is listed HERE and you can request free product coupons or a check right over HERE.
$1/2 Burger King snacks.


~I posted this coupon, but if you missed it the first time you can score a $1 off any Bic product coupon HERE.
Target has the bags of ball point pens for .99- so free after coupon. I also found white out for .39 after coupon and 2pks of Mark It makers for .74 after coupon.


~There is a new coupon for $1/2 TGI Friday’s Snacks. These are priced at .99 at the drugstores all the time and you might find the same deal at your grocery store as well!
I would grab the coupon while you can- the little things can make great fillers at the drugstores!


~There is a free sample of Chex Mix 1.7 oz but I will warn you now this takes a little effort. Here is what you have to do:
1. Head over to Tablespoon Foodfile on Facebook. You need to like them and allow the application.
2. Fill out the quiz which is 16 questions. If it has an error message at any point just close it out and open again from the link above and you should be right back where you left off.
3. Once you finish there is a brown “Chex Mix sample” button at the bottom once you finish the quiz.


~There is a new Yankee Candle coupon available! Buy 2 Yankee Candles and get 1 Free, now through May 27th with this coupon here.


~Jergen’s Natural Glow lotions can be found at Target for $1.99 in the travel section. I am not always a huge fan of buying lots of travel items but I checked this out today and these are actually a really good size.
You can use the $2/1 Jergen’s coupon and get these free! (This specific coupon has no size restrictions).


~You can click HERE for a $5 off Ben Gay coupon- just a quick registration and get a coupon for any Pain Relief + Massage item.


~We should see the annual flip flops for $1 event at Old Navy on May 22nd. This info hasn’t been officially announced yet but they do it every year. It is usually the plain flip flops in a million colors for ladies, men and kids. They are usually priced at 2/$5 in stores. There is a limit of 5 and in my experience they have mountains of them but I would try to get there early regardless.


~This might be worth jotting down on the calendar. On May 25th you can head into an Ulta store and they will be giving away 10,000 Nicole by OPI nail polish nationwide.
You will need to coupon on page 24 of the June/July magazine OR the printable coupon that should be available HERE. You can get all the details about this promotion HERE. I would strongly recommend calling your store in advance to confirm participation!

AGAIN, think ahead for some great savings. They also have a ton of flip flops and even some sandals for little boys for just $14.99 before the code.

What a post! Being new to your blog that was a bit of a shocker. I hope today went well for you and the kids at school. It sounds like it should have been exciting and eventful.

I will definitely check out your blog again. Perhaps you'd be interested in giveaways I do for girls and boys.
