Review: Vera Bradley Twirly Birds Pink Bags Give Back


My Husbands family go ga ga over Vera Bradley bags.  Even my young nieces sport the collections.  I always admire the bags from afar and now we're so lucky to review a Vera Bradley Perfect Pocket Tote and Caitlyn in the new Twirly Birds Pink pattern (Breast Cancer Awareness pattern).


GIVE BACK
The Twirly Birds Pink pattern twitters sweet songs of hope for a cure to breast cancer. Raspberry pink and warm white warblers make a vibrant statement for fashion and for the cause”. 10% of Vera Bradley’s net proceeds from the sale of products in Twirly Birds Pink will be donated to the Vera Bradley Foundation for Breast Cancer! There are 95 items you can order in this pattern! 

I just love the Vera Bradley Perfect Pocket Tote, its perfect for sporting my laptop on my trips or just for an everday work bag, but being a Mother I can see someone using it as a diaper bag as it has 2 deep front pockets which could hold 2 baby bottles and the inner compartment would hold a plethora of diapers, spare clothes and binkies.  The matching caitlyn purse is so cute and will hold my large amounts of coupons, cards and store cards. Yes I'm so practical : )


BUY IT
Make your day and treat yourself to one of the many pattern Vera Bradley bags at their online store - There's a pattern and style simply for everyone.  There's even a sale section - yay. 
Check here for a location that sells these wonderful bags.

MAKE A DONATION
If you would like to make a difference to Breast Cancer Awareness then head to Vera Bradleys Foundation for Breast Cancer  here

Thank you Vera Bradley for the review items and for supporting such a wonderful cause.

HURRY: Rue La La $20 Credit still available and counts towards SHIPPING!

I got my OneKingsLane items in the mail today.  Here's the bamboo salad server set that I got for 95 cents SHIPPED!  They are bigger than expected and so wonderful!  if you didn't do this deal then here's one for you below which seems to be even better!!!!


So the Onekingslane order reminded me to tell you all to sign up for the $20 credit on another daily deal site called Rue La La.  My credit is on my account now - did you get yours?  What did you buy?  The $20 credit is only available till 10/25!  So don't hesitate.  Remember it will take 48 hours for the credit to appear after sign up (mine came earlier than 48 hours though).

Here's one I'm eyeing on Rue La La thanks to Hip2save - click on the “Shop for Good” sale, you can snag a Vincent Longo Lipstick & Lip Pencil Set ($49 value!!) for ONLY $4.95 shipped after the $20 credit!  I need a good eyeliner and so the lipstick will be a bonus for me!! 

I personally love the Saucony Sneakers - only $35 + shipping- so with credit $15 + Shipping!  STEAL OR WHAT - plus the bonus is 10% of the proceeds go to Breast Cancer Research Foundation.

Here's the info that I posted earlier this week!

I love these daily deal sites - its amazing how many there are!  I just scored a beautiful scarf for my daugher for $3.94 shipped - check out how here, and I just got confirmation today that my OneKingsLane freebies are shipping - that was an awesome daily deal freebie!!!  and now Rue-La-La is offering a $20 free credit thru 10/25  to go buy anything from their site.  Its by invitation only from a member - c'est moi (thats me)! Here's the link.

This credit could take up to 48 hours to show up in your account. You can use this credit to purchase anything on their site and the deals change daily, so if you don’t like anything you see when you get the $20 credit, you’ll have until 12/31/10 to redeem the credit. It also appears there are (and will be when new deals start) quite a few items priced around $20, so FREE + shipping after the credit.

**Note: Shipping fees do apply (they seem to be a flat rate of $9.95).

Moneymaker free Restaurant.com Gift Certificates


If you like to eat out with the family or friends then this is for you. 

There is an online coupon code PUMPKIN which gives you 80% off at Restaurant.com.  This significantly reduces the cost of a $25 restaurant gift certificate to JUST $2.  If you are not familiar with Restaurant.com, its a site where you can purchase select restaurant certificates e.g. spend $50 get $25 off or spend $35 get $15 - the bonus is the certificate NEVER expires - keep it in your wallet. This greatly reduces your bill especially when eating out with the family.  If you are not an ebates.com account holder then purchasing a restaurant.com gift certificate could be a money maker for you - here's how:

Sign up with ebates.com here
After sign up type in Restaurant.com in the search button
A tracking ticket will take you to the restaurant.com website
Choose your restaurant using your zip
Purchase using online coupon code PUMPKIN
Upon first sign up ebates will give you $5 cashback
In addition, you will get 15% back from your total puchase
This makes it a $3.30 moneymaker after your ebates cashback check

If you already have an ebates account like me then I will only pay $1.70 cents after the 15% cashback!  WOW!!!

I scored big on my first restaurant.com purchase last year.  I chose a new up and upcoming restaurant called Honey and not only was the food awesome but I ate there for a steal.

October is Breast Cancer Month: Treasure Your Chests

Photobucket
October is a colorful month, with the browns, orange and yellow leaves everywhere it truly is Mother's nature at its best.  Pinks also feature heavily in October too - to symbolize Breast Cancer Awareness month.  Have you seen your city buildings lit up with pink?  Have you seen all the promotional products covered in pink!  No other charity is as recognizable than Breast Cancer awareness but yet we still find our mothers, sisters, daughters, friends and even men struck down hard by this disease. 


So I'm including this video to spread this proactive message "Early detection is the best prevention".  This is a live webcast and shows E! News host Giuliana Rancic and Lindsay Avner, founder of the national breast and ovarian cancer non-profit Bright Pink, "felt themselves up" which is hosted by Orbit White Bubblemint gum

Watch live streaming video from TreasureYourChest at livestream.com

GIVE BACK
As a proud sponsor of this campaign, Orbit White is donating 10 percent of every pack of Orbit White Bubblemint gum sold in September and October, up to $75,000, to Bright Pink.

Give your friends the best gift - Life - send them this post so they can be informed.

Disclosure: I wrote this review while participating in a campaign contest for MomSelect on behalf of Orbit Gum to share the message.  All opinions are of my own.

Where can I find a store that takes Maestro?

Back in July I posted about these surveys on Kraft Mayo and Bullseye BBQ sauce which pays you $15 upon successful completion.  I have my $15 prepaid cash cards but have tried to no avail to spend my money as my local stores don't take them!  It states you can use them where Maestro symbols are available.  Anyone have any luck on using your cash card?

Thanks

Switching to Verizon Fios can earn you $100


The Holiday season is moving in fast and so how about earning yourself $100.

While hosting my Verizon Fios Viewing Party - The Ultimate Battle through Houseparty I found out that if I make a referral for someone who wants to sign up for Verizon Fios* then we both get $100 in an American Express®-branded reward card that can be used at select merchants that welcome American Express® Cards in the U.S. 

I already have the Verizon Triple pay package and love it, we've used DirectTV and Comcast and we're happy not to switch back.

If you are interested in an easy $100 gift card just for signing up** then email me at addictedtofreebies at gmail dot com and I can send you a referral email where you can sign up! I would just need your name and address, state, home tel. no and email address to forward the request.
*Subscribe to at least one Verizon service, such as Verizon FiOS TV, FiOS® Internet, Verizon FiOS Digital Voice or Flex Bundle, Verizon High Speed Internet or Verizon Freedom Value/Verizon Freedom® Essentials Phone service

** An order placed for a qualifying service (High Speed Internet, FiOS Internet or FiOS TV) must be within the 45 days of referral.
