Totally Tampax Tuesday Radiant Sample

Another Facebook freebie came this week! This week is off to a good start. I was starting to think this would never show up as I ordered it sometime back in March… to my surprise THREE showed up in the last two days. I did see a lot of people have been getting duplicates. :D

Free Triscuits and Kashi Crackers

Yesterday I used my first coupon in probably two weeks! Since starting couponing back in October/November I don’t think I have gone more then a couple days without using at least one coupon.

Maybe someone out there has also notice that my blog is lacking in updates – I haven’t even posted about my March Glymm or Luxe boxes. In fact, I haven’t even tried anything in them yet. Rather then couponing & deal hunting I have been focusing all my spare time and attention on something else… my wedding!

About three weeks ago we decided to move the wedding up a year… to this August! Since then it has been a fair amount of work trying to get some things organized and planned. I guess trying to plan a wedding for 5 months from now is a bit of short notice! hah! But things are going well – it just means I have less time to focus on finding all the awesome deals out there. But truth be told, I am pretty well stock in all cleaning and toiletry supplies – I really don’t need to coupon or search for deals at the moment because there is nothing we need; other then your basic milk and eggs. I am still watching for freebies when I can but not worrying about too much else.

I have a stack of free product coupons to use up – I am watching the expiry day on those. Yesterday I used up a coupon cracker coupons.

Free Triscuits and Kashi Crackers
Paid: $0.00 – Saved $10.97 – 100% Coupon Savings

2 x Free Kashi Crackers – Zesty Salsa
1 x Free Triscuits – Applewood Smoked BBQ

The Kashi Crackers came from the Thiffty Foods Facebook and was only good in BC at their stores. The Triscuit coupons came from there Facebook a few months ago.

Here was some deals I meant to post a few weeks ago:

Random Deals
$5 Pure Stainless Steel Water bottle, $1.00 Ladyspeed Stick Deodorant, Free Revlon Nail Files

And that is about that for an update, I will try and get some posts up for my March Glymm & Luxe boxes by the end of the weekend – at least to show what came in them.

Happy Weekend Everyone!

Mail – Lots of Free Product Coupons

It’s been a while since I posted about mail; it has been piling up on my kitchen table. There has been lots of great free product coupons lately – still haven’t figured out my best plan to use them. I sort of want to use them all in one go (with all the others I have) just for fun.

Mail - Lots of Free Product Coupons

– FREE DR PEPPER any flavour 591ml
– FREE 1L Natrel Baboo
– FREE box of Kashi Snacks (Exclusive to Thrifty Foods)
– FREE 295ml Vaseline Total Moisture Product
– Get one FREE Liberte Greek Yogurt
– 650g Tub of Asana Yoplait FREE
– 430g box of Quaker Maple Brown Sugar Instant Oatmeal FREE
– $5.00 worth of Champman’s Products
– 2 x FREE Lindt Swiss Glassic 100g Bar
– FREE Schick Hydro Silk Razor

The FREE Lindt Swiss Glassic 100g Bar cards came from winning on their contest two weeks in a row. Pretty cool “coupon” – it is on a plastic card. Pretty fancy! I don’t even think this is everything I have received in the past few weeks, but it was everything I haven’t put away yet. It really has been a pretty awesome few weeks.

Free L’OCCITANE en Provence Shea Butter Hand Cream

L’OCCITANE en Provence had an offer on their Facebook – for every sign up to their website you got a free hand cream valued at $6. If they reached 6,000 subscribers they would upgrade you to the bigger hand cream valued at $12. They reached 39,000!

The catch was you had to pick up your hand cream in store and we don’t have a store locally.

The hand cream is pretty nice – it is a little thick but absorbs pretty well. It has a pretty nice smell to it too and leaves your hands soft. I am such a hand cream addict, a girl can never have too many. This one is a bit pricey, but a good hand cream can be worth it. The downfall is, there is no where for me to buy this locally if I wanted to.

So yesterday a friend and I drove an hour and half to pick ours up! It was a fun day.

The L’OCCITANE en Provence store was nice – I have been in one before but never really checked it out. It looks like they have some really nice products – bit pricey though. They also loaded the three of us up with some free samples on top of our free hand cream.

Free L'OCCITANE en Provence Shea Butter Hand Cream

Free L’OCCITANE en Provence Shea Butter Mini Hand Cream 30ml
L’OCCITANE en Provence Samples:
Aromachologie Soothing Shampoo 8ml

Almond Milk Concentrate 8ml
Immortelle Eye Balm 1ml
Essential Water for the Face 2ml
Precious Fluid 1ml

While we were there we hit up Old Navy since we don’t have one (yet) – I picked up a couple things. There wasn’t that many great deals, but I found a couple items I liked. I don’t normally pay full price there but I did have a 20% off coupon so it wasn’t too bad. And I really liked what I found – a neon orange t-shirt, woo! We also got to see another one of my really good friends. Had a delicious lunch at Red Robin and hit up American Eagle where I found some $15 jeans. We don’t have any of these places in our town so it was a really fun day. We got lots of walking in too (over 15,000 steps and 35 flights of stairs according to my FitBit).

Great day!

Couponing: First Time Getting Cash Back from Overage

On Friday I went into the mall to get my free Bath and Body Works trial size item thanks to their Valentine’s Day coupon on Facebook. I picked one of the newer scents, Aruba Coconut – smells great. Man I love Bath and Body Works.

Mall freebies: Bath and Body Works Aruba Coconut Lotion and Revlon Nail Files

After getting my free lotion I headed into Walmart for a quick look around. I found some Revlon nail files for $1.77 – perfect to pair up with my $2.00 off Revlon Beauty Tools coupon I found at Shoppers Drug Mart last week. I grabbed 4. I really didn’t need anything else in Walmart so I thought I would see what happens with my overage. Well… THEY GAVE IT BACK TO ME AS CASH! It was only $0.07 but I couldn’t believe it. This is the first time I have been paid in cash back to use coupons. Super exciting.

First time getting paid to coupon

Since Friday was my first day wearing my FitBit I was actually just walking around the mall to get my steps up – it worked out well and I left with some freebies. In fact, I didn’t spend a penny and left with 7 more than I entered with. Awesome day.

Mail Freebies: Marcelle, RMS Beauty, Marcelle and MORE!

Today was an amazing mail day – the best I have ever had.

amazing mail day

I had 5 packages (and an envelope) waiting for me when I got home! It was almost as good as Christmas morning. I actually feel bad for my poor mail person today. Least we don’t have door to door delivery – they just had to drop them all in a box.

Mail Freebies:  Marcelle, RMS Beauty, Marcelle and MORE!

Free product coupon for CheeCha Puffs (missing from photo)
Free L’Oreal Paris Elnett Hairspray
Free Marcelle BB Cream
Murad T-Zone Gel (used Glymm points, so it was free)
Free RMS Beauty Lip Shine (used Glymm promo code when buying gel)
Free Lean Cuisine Lunch Bag (photo below)
and my FitBit! (gift)

Free product coupon for CheeCha Puffs came from an offer on their Facebook page a week or two ago. L’Oreal Paris Elnett Hairspray came from an contest on their Facebook page before Christmas – it was an instant win prize. Took a while to get.

The Marcelle BB Cream is one of the most exciting freebies I have received yet. I got this for referring 10 friends to sign up for their Facebook page last Tuesday. This came REALLY fast for an amazing freebie. It is full size and worth $22.95 plus tax. I had previously read other bloggers saying how awesome it was and had tried to find it in stores (not knowing it didn’t come out until last Tuesday) so I am extremely excited to try this out.

The Murad T-Zone Gel came from Glymm.com. I used 400 Glymm Points to get it for free – 100 points is worth $10 (you get 100 points for signing up to their monthly box subscription.) I also used a promo code from my January Glymm box to get a Free RMS Beauty Lip Shine (worth $25). I did have to pay tax and shipping on the Murad T-Zone Gel for a total of $11.46. So I guess it wasn’t totally free, but it was pretty darn close. (There will be post on this soon to share my experiences with shopping on Glymm.com.)

The FitBit was a Valentine’s Day gift from my fiancĂ©. Last Thursday I went for dinner with a girlfriend and she gave me all kinds of rave reviews about hers – I came home and was telling him about it and he ordered me one right then and there. I can’t believe a week later it was at my house. It shippied from California and arrived in Canada in under a week (not even 5 full shipping days). You can check out more about the FitBit on their website and order your very own with FREE shipping! In case anyone is wondering, I used the free shipping option and it still came super fast, so save your pennies and don’t bother with any of the paid options. I am sure you will be seeing more posts about my FitBit in the future.

Free Lean Cuisine Lunch Bag
And last but not least, my Free Lean Cuisine Lunch Bag. Last month leancuisine.ca was offering double points on Lean Cuisine pins. Each meal was worth 500 points and you could get a lunch bag for 1500 points (3 meals). Combined with both the Facebook offers for free meals, a friend giving me her pins and a couple I had in the freezer I was able to get TWO lunch bags! The second one should be here soon. It is a really nice bag and a good size. Really happy with it and can’t wait to try it out.

All that came today! CRAZY!!! Earlier in the week I also got a free product coupon for Philadelphia Cooking Creme. And something I forgot to mention – last Monday February 6 – I was the first person to tweet @londondrugs and I won 4 boxes of Keurig K-Cups – got to pick them up last Friday. Bit slow on posting that.
I won 4 boxes of Keurig K-Cups

Anyway, it has been a really great week. Wonder if there will be anything exciting in my mailbox tomorrow? Another lunch bag perhaps?
