Best Buy: Free Gift Cards for Report Cards* – From Stacie:
Our local Best Buy store is offering "gift cards for scholars". It
breaks down like this:
1 A= $5 BB gift card
2 A’s=$10 BB gift
3 A’s= $15 BB gift card
4+A’s= $25 BB gift card.
last night and got some great FREE goodies!! I have also heard that
the clothing store Limited Too does the same. Do you know of any other
chain or franchise stores participating in a program like this?
(*Note from Crystal: The Best Buy deal might only be a local deal available at Stacie’s Best Buy store. Anyone know? If you know of any other great report card offers, please share them in the comments section!)
Half Price Books: Make A Profit Off the Free Magazines – From Catherine:
As I’ve been going to Half Price Books once a week
to get the kids’ the summer reading program sheets and free books, I have
been taking in some books we don’t need anymore and haven’t
successfully sold any other way.
One week I noticed that our Half Price Books has a
magazine section, so this week I took in several of the magazines I
have already flipped through but didn’t want to save (now that I get
tons of free magazine subscriptions I’ve found out about through Money
Saving Mom!). They gave me a great price for them, between 50 and 75
Given that I didn’t spend anything on the magazines in the
first place, I thought that was a pretty good deal, and it more than
paid for my gas to get over there (although fortunately for me, HPB is
on my usual errand route anyway). I just thought I’d pass that along,
as other people may have basically new magazines sitting around the
house. Getting money for them is better than throwing them away!
ACE Hardware: Rebate Sale This Weekend – From Renee:
I just wanted to let you know that
Ace Hardware is having a huge rebate sale this weekend. They have many free items after rebate and many items
that are just $0.99 cents after rebate. More details can be found here.
Did you see the ebates.com
tip in the AllYou magazine this month? Apparently, if you refer
someone, you and they get $5.
(Note from Crystal: For those who haven’t signed up to EBates yet, I highly recommend it. You only have to spend an initial $5.01, and you get $5 back for signing up. And then you can encourage your friends to join and earn an additional $5 for each friend who signs up with the promotion going on right now. Sign up here.)
Pampers: Gifts to Grow Program – From Jessica:
I know you mentioned Pampers recently on your blog and I wanted to be
sure that you knew about Gifts to Grow. We use Pampers too and I just
recently discovered what the stickers on the packages are. You can
find out about it at www.pampers.com. Every Pampers product comes with a code that you can enter into your
profile on the site and you can use the points to earn free toys, gift
(Note from Crystal: I have not used this program yet–bad me for all the Pampers I’ve purchased (well, I got them mostly free at CVS, but that still counts!) in the last two years!–but I just bought another package and can’t seem to even find the code on it. Where should I be looking? And how many packages do I have to buy in order to earn anything of value? Just curious.)
