NSR: Get Free Stuff
As the holiday's approach, my bank account and credit cards quiver in fear! They get used and abused as I'm shopping for all of the people on my lists. This year, I am actually saving a ton of money, by having done a little work throughout the rest of the year. Here are some of my tips, and if you start now, you'll be feeling much better by next year too!
Disney Movie Rewards: Most Disney movies you purchase come with a little sheet inside that contains a code. Enter this code into your DMR account to earn points - then redeem your points for some great rewards! This year my older son will be getting a Little Einsteins DVD and the baby will get a Baby Einsteins DVD both cost me nothing since I was able to purchase them using my points. Additionally, a special offer is sent out around your birthday allowing you to get a free DVD or BluRay (from a selected list of options) for just the cost of shipping. If you sign up to get their newsletter, you'll be able to earn a bonus 5 points a month using the code sent out in the email. The final great feature about this program is all the deals you get for being a member. Coupons sent out for $5-$10 off the purchase of Disney movies (I got an $8 off Cars 2 coupon when it was release this month). If you're Disney fans, this is a great program!
Pampers and Huggies Gifts Programs: If you have a child in diapers, and are brand loyal to either of these companies, sign up for their rewards program. Every box or bag of diapers you buy has a code inside, which (much like the disney program) you enter on their web site and can redeem for great prizes. The baby will be getting a set of Magnetic toy boats for the bath tub (retail value $14.99) FREE after redeeming some points from Pampers.
Swagbucks: I'm sure you've heard about Swagbucks, but if you haven't you're missing out. Simply use their search engine, participate in daily polls, complete special offers and keep your eye on their Facebook page and Blog for codes to earn "Swagbucks" these bucks can be redeemed for prizes like Amazon.com gift cards, movies, games etc. I've been saving up my amazon cards and was able to buy a big ticket item for my husband for Christmas for very little out of pocket cost. If you coupon at all, you can print your coupons through Swagbucks to earn additional points too!
Review: Using these four different sites, I was able to get 2 DVDs, a set of toy boats and over $40 in gift cards to amazon.com all FREE.
