Easy Find Deals [Mar. 22nd, 2010|08:37 am]
The Penny Pinchers
Hi,  I just started a journal to help people find deals and coupons for whatever you're looking for.  I'll be posting up random deals and coupons I find for online shopping.  easyfinddeals  There's not much up right now, but more will be coming.

Let me know if you're looking for something specific.  I can try to help find it~

I don't have any rules, but I'll put them up as I go, since I don't know what to expect yet.

Please take a look.  Suggestions are welcome.

Huggies Enjoy The Rides codes!! [Feb. 18th, 2010|04:32 pm]
The Penny Pinchers


Here is a new code to help build your Enjoy the Ride Rewards account.  Click here to see all the other codes I've previously posted.


Just to clarify, the codes that I post are for everyone to use once.  They will work on every new account (or old one) that has not used that code yet.  The codes that you find on Huggies products (diaper packages, wipes, etc) will only work ONCE FOR ONE ACCOUNT.

You can also earn points on the Enjoy the Ride website by:

  • Registering with Huggies Enjoy the Ride.com – 10 points (new members only)
  • Watching videos – 2 points each (look under Earn Rewards tab, currently there are 10)  These are actually kind of funny!
  • Taking polls – 2 points each
  • Browse, click and earn – various points
  • Referring friends - 5 points each who register

*HOT* Free Photo Gifts (even shipping!) [Feb. 12th, 2010|09:58 pm]
The Penny Pinchers


Ok - so I'm really excited about this. You know how Snapfish always has "free" items offers but you have to pay shipping on them? Well not this week! I just got an email about a special Free shipping promo code and I just verified it with my account. I was able to make all the "free" items in my account (a mug, the flipbook, the coasters and a poster collage), put them in my shopping basket and checkout. They each had a shipping fee of $5.99, but at the bottom of the page, I put in the free shipping code and it subtracted all of them!

To get free shipping, use promo code PRESDAY during checkout (valid 2/12-2/19). It will deduct shipping costs for all items EXCEPT prints.

If you sign up for a new account, you will be credited with:
  • Free Set of 5 x 7 photo cards (expires in 2 weeks)
  • Free 4×6 Flip book (no expiration date)
  • 50 Free prints (expires in 2 months)
  • Free Set of 6 Photo coasters (no expiration date)
So the coasters, flip book and photo cards above will all ship free with this special code. It usually costs $5.99 each to ship them so this is a huge savings and makes these TRULY FREE. (I made the coaster set with my new baby's pictures on them for the grandparents as a gift and the flipbook is going to the other set of grandparents!)

Heres how you can get your freebies added to your cart:
  • Open up a new account here. (it will say 50 free prints, but it actually will add all the above to your account)
  • After you register, click on your account in upper right hand corner.
  • You will see a list of the items credited to your account.
  • Click use credit next to item you want to use.
  • Make your item and add to cart.
  • Add your promo code of PRESDAY and forget about paying shipping!
I'd love to hear how you guys are using this incredible deal and any fun gift ideas you have!

Free baby formula! [Jan. 15th, 2010|11:33 am]
The Penny Pinchers


Just wanted to give everyone a head-up, there is a 800 number to call for request a free sample of store brand formula for babies here.  :o)

Press #3 and you will be connected to a rep.  Just say you are calling to request a sample.  They have a milk-based sample available to send to you (Parents Choice) OR they can send you a coupon to use at a local store near you.  I asked for Target and was told I would be sent a coupon for the Up and Up brand. 

***The rep also told me to mark this date on my calendar and to call back next month to request another coupon.  She said you can do this once a month, every month!!!

Coupon Train anyone? [Jan. 13th, 2010|02:01 pm]
The Penny Pinchers


I am looking for people who are interested in participating in a coupon train.  If you don't know what a coupon train is, it goes something like this:  I have clipped ALL of the coupons from my Sunday paper and there are oodles that I'm not going to use.  I'll put them into an envelope and will send them to the next person on the train list.  That person takes what they want (removing any expired ones as they sort), adds in their own unwanted coupons and sends everything off to the next person on the list.  I'm looking to keep this going, so to have people who will commit to resending the packet within 2-3 days is ideal.

If you are interested, please sign up here.

Any Swaggers out there? [Jan. 13th, 2010|11:48 am]
The Penny Pinchers

Just wondering if anyone is in on the Swagbucks out there?  If so, maybe we can help each other out with the bonus codes during the week?  Please email me if you are and we'll work out a system!

If not, and you're curious what it's about, here goes :o)  Swagbucks is a search engine that rewards you in the form of Swagbucks (points that can be traded in for prizes.) You can chose from a variety of prizes, including gift cards. The most poopular is a $5 Amazon.com gift card which you can redeem for 45 Swagbucks.  (It usually takes 2-3 weeks to collect 45 Swagbucks). 

You get 3 Swagbucks for joining and can win anywhere from 2 – 5 a day if you search until you win in the morning and in the evening.  I usually win within a few searches. You can add more to your account by keeping a lookout for Swagcodes a few times a week.  (I always notify you of them on my blog when they are available)

You can go here to join. If you refer someone to Swagbucks, when they win by searching, you win the same amount! I think it's a great way to earn a little extra at something that you do every time you're online anyway.  I still prefer Google as my main search engine, but I just try to remember to do a couple searches a day over there to earn the points. 

I spent all my points on Christmas presents this year (boy did that really help out!!!), so I'm back to starting all over again for Christmas this year :o)  I try not to spend them during the year because I like to see them rack up.  I was actually able to buy my father in law a Kindle last year from all the Swagbucks I saved!
