@Ana You really should sign up for Shopkick. It rewards you a daily point for clicking on the app and if you walk into certain stores like Macy's, Target or Wal-Mart for example it will give you various points (depending on the store.) You can also earn more points by scanning products while in the store. It can be a little time consuming if you want to scan all the items for that store (sometimes the network connection is bad in big stores) but it is fun and after receiving 500 points you can redeem them for $2.00 Target or Starbucks reward for example but there are tons more things to choose from and within different point ranges. Once you sign up, you can invite friends and if they sign up from your link, you'll receive half the points they earn for the first 2 weeks that they're active. I earned about 116 points off of one person for example. All I did was post my link on Facebook but you can personally text someone as well. Give it a try, hope this helps :)
It's an app where you check in certain stores and scan items listed you get points that once you hit enough you can redeem for gift cards!
I'm in SoCal but I'm sure it's a universal app!
I love shopping at B&B but sometimes it’s just too expensive so I wait for coupons. I received a coupon for 1 free travel item, 20% off a total purchase plus 1 free candle and 1 free travel item with a purchase. I usually just go to get the free travel item but there was a sale on the C.O. Bigelow lip treatments and I’ve always wanted to get them. I ended up doing 2 transactions to maximize my savings.
1 C.O. Bigelow lip treatment retails $7.50, Sale price $4.00
travel item (body spray, body lotion, shower gel) retails $5.00 each
mini mason jar candle $4.50
transaction 1: I bought 2 lip treatments, received 20% off and free travel item (roughly paid $6ish)
transaction 2: I bought 1 lip treatment, received the mini mason jar candle and travel item for free (roughly paid $4ish)
Total Retail $37.00, Spent $11.10, Saved $25.90
I also used my Victoria’s Secret Angel Card for these purchases. They’re affiliated stores so I can receive angel points good towards a future purchase at Victoria’s Secret.
@Pigucoupon OK, I just got off the phone with a VS rep. You can clearly use your card to shop there but cannot earn points towards your Angel Rewards. So whoever I spoke with initially from the company didn't know what they were talking about. My apologies, hopefully anyone that see's this brag post will read the comment section to verify the point situation. Thank you for bringing it up!
Could you let me know if VS gave you the points or no please? I chatted with a VS customer service representative and they told me points can only be earned at VS sore, not BBW sore. TIA
I entered a contest via TerraCycle on Facebook. Basically, they asked “how do you store your Bear Naked Granola bags for recycling?” They wanted you to post a photo and explain. I was the only person who entered!! I won 6 FREE bags of a new Bear Naked granola flavor. It really does pay off to follow your favorite brands on social media.
1 bag of Bear Naked Granola retails $4.49
Total retail (6 bags) $26.94, I paid $0, saved $26.94
@gtgirl Every Easter, my father-in-law gives me candies in a giant Ziploc bag. So, every year I reuse my bags for things around the house. Example: I collect old light bulbs and batteries in separate bags and when they're full I take them to get recycled. Same goes for the Bear Naked bags. I've been collecting those bags for over 2 years along with other products that can be recycled through the TerraCycle program. I also have a completely full bag of Coca-Cola caps that people have given me. I redeem them through the mycokerewards.com program and I've gotten magazine subscriptions, shutterfly rewards, movie tickets etc. I've never had to buy any Coke products.
that's pretty awesome, I'm curious now as to how you store your bags :~)
Here we have 4 items that my husband and I picked up from Harbor Freight in the span of 1 week. We received 2 mailers and it advertised 3 free items in each. We chose 2 of those items (can only receive 1 free item per person, per day.) We had to make a trip to Home Depot and Harbor Freight is along the way, so why not stop in? We ended up having to go back to Home Depot later in the week, hence the 4 free items. On our second trip back though we noticed that they just posted a huge sale and had more coupons at the checkout. I now have 10+ coupons to receive free items. We have time to redeem them because they’re good until October!
Multimeter $9.99, screwdriver set $4.99, LED work light $6.99, flashlight $6.99
Total retail: $28.96, spent $0, Saved $28.96
Still have coupons for free: flashlights, extension cords, cutting shears etc. Score!
I have that exact same screwdriver set :). They always have free harbor freight coupons in the Sunday Newspaper or in Smartsource Inserts. There's a harbor freight right across my job so when I see a new item I will need or know a friend will need I go right in after work to pick one up. I love the long expiration dates on them.
@gtgirl You should totally go! My husband says, "Well these aren't the best quality tools." (We are avid DIYer's and have a ton of tools.) While I agree with him on that, these make great stocking stuffers for family members, a white elephant party or even secret santa at the office. Really, there are a lot of possibilities. I'm planning on using the flashlights to make emergency kits for the house and car, for example.
If you live in Northeast Ohio, then you know about the deals at Marc’s. For those of you who don’t, They pick up discontinued items from Target stores and sell them dirt cheap! It can get dangerous shopping there sometimes
Pictured here: 2 Target brand tote bags and 1 pair of I think Merona slippers (the brand tag was gone)
@gkmurtoff Yes, it is a grocery store but they also have a closeout section that has anything from make-up, clothing, home décor, kitchenware etc. Each store varies in items. A good example is that the Marc's by my house currently has a line of Threshold furniture from Target for half the retail price but that's not to say if you went to another location that they would have the same furniture. Does that make sense?
it looks like a grocery store...do they have a small section of clothes too?
Note:The Motts Applesauce 6pk cups didn’t register as a qualifying item for the buy 10 get a $5 gift card deal. Went to customer service and was told it was only the Motts 4pk pouch. I tried to tell her that the cups were included and were on the sign on the shelf. She refused to give the card, I got aggravated and no longer pursued the issue. My husband on the other hand went get a worker near the grocery section that was stocking to look at the sign. He explained to the worker the situation and showed the receipt to the worker. The worker agreed that it was part of the deal and went with my husband back to customer service. The worker told her what the sign said and she gave my husband the $5 gift card. My husband said she was not happy about being proved wrong. The Alpo coupon didn’t stipulate if it had to be for single cans or the 12pk so I wasn’t sure on that one but the register accepted it. Also, I wasn’t sure about using the Target printed Suave coupon for $3/$10 and the Target mobile coupon for $1/2 coupons together. I asked the cashier and she said they would work together and the register accepted them.
