THE FREEBIE JUNKIE RECOMMENDS

Free $5 at Ebates.com




Did you know that you can get $5 just for shopping online and also save some money and get rewarded for shopping?  You can get all of this at Ebates.com - I use Ebates.com while I shop online and so far I've received $100 back.  Basically, I signed up for an ebates account (click here) and then while I'm logged in I search for the store that I want to buy something e.g. OldNavy.com or Macys.com and even ebay.com and a new window will pop up telling me how much cash back I can receive and also it may tell me if there are any online coupon codes that I can redeem at checkout.  How easy is that?  I almost never pay full price for anything because somewhere there is a coupon or rebate or ebate in this instance that can be utilized.  For first time sign ups you will receive $5 - free money!  Go for it!

Freebies at HouseParty.com


I got into the Bic Soleil Sunshine House Party and this is what I received today to host my party.  This is my fourth House Party and this has to tie closely with the Land of Lakes Cheese House Party where I was given 14 LOL labeled Martini Glasses as giveaways, the Sex in the City DVD and free coupons to go buy LOL cheese to make appetizers to host a movie night.  I won't divulge the entire content of the Bic Soleil party packs so to surprise my guests who might be reading this post, but let me tell you the party pack is nice.  For those wondering what the House Party is, well its a website that invites you to host a party with your friends and family whilst promoting products.  They have a lot of parties that you can apply for and if invited you promise to host the party, invite friends and family and promote the product and then provide feedback on their website.  There's no selling, buying or begging - just an excuse to host a fun party.  Check the website out and go host a party. 

Here's a link to print a $2 coupon off a pack of Bic Soleil razor.  On Sunday Rite Aid will have the Bic Soleil razors for $3.99 after a $2 rebate.  So pair this $2 and get the razors for $1.99 after rebate and coupon. If you get the Sunday paper there is a $3/1 coupon in the P&G booklet so it will cost you 99c after rebate and coupon.  Not free but I'm just doing my job ; ) 

Free museum entrance


For the Bank of America Card Holders this weekend they can enter participating museums for free (when you show your bank card).  This occurs the first weekend of every month just in case you have other plans.

My Freebie Friday

I love to multitask and this morning, I dropped the kids off at school at 7am and got to work at 7.50 am and in the space of 20 minutes I picked up the following items - ALL FOR FREE

Acme Grocery store
4 packs of Mission Tortillas, 10ct (used these coupons).  See my original post here
3 boxes of Puffs Tissues (used Vocal point coupons)
When I checked out a coupon for a free Edy's fun flavor cup (up to $1.25) popped out.  Now a freebie on top of a freebie is what I call super couponing.

CVS
Avatar DVD (see their deal on their flyer plus used a $5 Extra care bucks) It does entail paying for things like the coke products but I offset that by buying all my fig newtons using the $1 coupon here as that fufilled some of the $25 spend.

2 boxes of Wheat Thins (be a fan on facebook and click to print the $1/1 coupon)  The tiny boxes are a $1 this week. 

I've updated my April freebie post as it is the last day of April today - how fast did this first quarter go already?

But the day is still young - so in my lunch break and before picking kids up at the end of the day I'll see what else I can pick up. 

Update: Here's what I got free after work:

I went to CVS and picked up 2 more Fig Newtowns and 2 more sunscreen.  then ran next door to Giants to pick up 9 cans of Mighty Dog (should have been 10 but he pushed my coupons through) and a CFL light bulb

Hope everyone has a great weekend and yay for the warm weather.


Coupons to print for freebies

Click on these coupon links to print these coupons as they will most certainly go on sale somewhere soon and when doubled you will get these for free.  When I figure out when and where I'll post.


Click here for the 50c/1 coupon - (doubles to $1.00 at my stores) - wait for a sale


Click here for the 75c/1 coupon (doubles to $1.50 at Acme grocery store this week to make them free.   I shall be picking up 4 on Friday morning before work.  These freeze well so stock up guys.  While I'm at Acme I'm going to pick up the puffs tissue and use my Vocal Point coupons.  For those who are not familiar with Vocal Point - check out their website and sign up, you'll get sent new products and coupons to test and share with friends and family.




Click here for a 45c/1 coupon (doubles to $0.90 at my store) - wait for a sale.  It does say do not double but will double (since the UPC code starts with a 5 - i it starts with a 9 it will not automatically double) unless your cashier is vigilant and pushes the button to say do not double - therefore find a young male cashier ; )




Click here for the $1/1 KC Masterpiece coupon (go through the sign up process and bonus you're also entering for a Keith Urban experience). These go on sale during grilling season for a dollar - so yes you've got it - it will be free.

Free Carvel Icecream


Free Ice cream at a participating Carvel Stores today.  None close to me but didn't even know they had Carvel stores.  Click here to find a participating location.

Thanks to Nrord at VickysDeals

Free Eucerin Sample

Click here for a link to a free Eucerin Sample.  I like to keep lotion samples in my car so that we can moisturize on the go. 

Free Ban Deodorant

Rite Aid has the Ban Deodorant for B1G1 @ $3.49 each.  So when you buy 4 it comes to $10.47.  Then use the $1/1 from the Sunday paper on 4/18.  You need 4, if you don't then use this printable 75c/1 (print 2 per computer).  Then submit your receipt to the Rite Aid rebate to get $10 back.

Here's the math: $10.47 - $10 rebate - $1 X 4 = $3.53 MONEYMAKER
Or if you only have 75c/1 = $10.47 - $10 rebate - 75c X 4 = $2.53 MONEY MAKER

Even if you only have one coupon it will be free.


If you have other things to buy at Rite Aid don't forget to use this coupon to get $5 off when you spend $25.

Note: 4/30 - I couldn't pass up on the $5/$25 coupon with the Ban deal so I scoped out the Physicians Formula makeup as I knew they had some free after rebate sticker on some packages at some stores, unfortunately mine didn't have any so I found some $4/1 coupons on the packages and they were B1G1 half off.  So this is my transaction last night.

4 Ban Deodorants
2 Physicians Formula loose powder
Used 2 $4/1 Physicians Formula coupons found on packages

Total out of pocket with tax $13.13, submit for the Rite Aid $10 rebate.  Therefore paid $3.13 for the make up which is usually $12 a piece.
