Pampers points: 10 free points

In honor of Leap Year, or just for the fun of it, Pampers is offering 10 free points.  Click here and use the following code: FBLD229AWE4VB12

Simple, wasn't it?

Thanks to H4F

My Coke Rewards: Wednesday deal and bad news for Arctic Home

Actually, I'll start with the latter.  It appears that the bonus points for finding a diamond are done.  We had a good run, didn't we?

Second, the Wednesday Deal: SpyKids 4 DVD for 450 points instead of 750.  Didn't know there was a SpyKids 4, did ya?  Now you're a little intrigued.  Admit it, just a little?  Yeah, me neither.  But if you're interested, here's the link.

Recyclebank: 25 more easy points

Seriously, if you haven't signed up for RB, this is easy stuff.

Club Bing coming to an end

I don't actually root for programs to come to an end, but I'm not going to miss this one.  Club Bing was notoriously fussy and known to accuse players of cheating without providing an explanation, thus voiding their prizes. 

Wonder if I'll ever get my watch that I "won?"

My Coke Rewards: Wednesday "deal"

Ahh, back to the Coke we know and love.  The Wednesday deal is a subscription to Real Simple magazine for 200 points instead of 400.  Normally when MCR offers crappy deals, I've at least heard of the magazine.

Pampers points: 10 free points

Bad news: My wife is out of town for Valentine's Day.

Good news: Pampers has been kind enough to mark the occasion by offering ten free points by entering code FBVAL9BD99DAY12, according to our friends at  I'm not sure that the two are related, but I'll be happy to take the ten points.

My kids are almost out of diapers (Whoo-hoo!), but I'll keep collecting the Pampers points.  These guys are paying for my movie tickets.  Too bad I didn't start collecting years ago.  I could have gotten a stroller out of it.

MyPoints pays off: Just received a $100 Macy's gift card

It took a while, but MyPoints finally paid off.  After months of clicking, I ended up with enough points for a $100 Macy's gift card, which arrived yesterday. 

AMC Stubs: Discount on Best Picture marathon

AMC Theatres offers Stubs, one of my least favorite loyalty program.  In my opinion, no one should ever be forced to pay to join a loyalty program and I would not have joined had they not given me the first year free.  The biggest benefits are a $10 gift card for every $100 you spend, free upgrades on overpriced popcorn and soda (thereby getting people to buy snacks they might not have bought in the first place) and free online ticket purchases (what I call the ATM phenomenon: getting you to pay for something that saves the company money), although you still have to wait in line to pick up your tickets at the counter.

Having said all that...I'm probably going to renew my membership, anyway.  It kills me to pay for it, but I see enough movies that it's worth it for me, and cutting off my nose to spite my face just didn't make sense. 

Anyway, here's the deal: AMC is showing Best Picture nominee marathons all day Saturday, this week and next.  $30 for a four-picture pass on 2/18, $40 for a five picture pass on 2/25.  Yes, that's how screwed up these guys are: the marginal cost for the additional show is higher, not lower, than the average of the first four.  You get a $5 concessions gift card for each show you buy (Get your bottles of soda ahead of time at a real store.) and Stubs members get $5 in "Bonus Bucks" if they buy tickets ahead of time.

Bottom line: It's a lousy program when compared to typical loyalty programs but, if you see a lot of movies, it might be worth it.

Disney Movie Rewards: Five free points

Whew.  I was getting a little nervous that they had given up on the monthly code.  Never fear, just a bit late.  Go here and enter code: 328WEDKFAHF.

Free IHOP pancakes on February 28

I always feel guilty when I go a few days without a good post, and one of the ways I address guilt is with food.  Thus, I'm buying you all free pancakes at IHOP on February 28.  Okay, I'm not buying them, IHOP is.  Technically, they're not even buying them, they're giving the pancakes away for free.  But it's the thought that counts, so read about it here.

If it makes you feel any better, I'm working on my master list for birthday freebies.

My Coke Rewards: Double points promotion (with T&C)

MCR finally got around to giving us the Terms and Conditions for its Double Points promo this month.  Donate 35 points or more to Heart Truth and you get double points for all codes you enter from specially marked packages.  Not as good as the Arctic Home game, which has paid off huge for me (and is still going on, by the way), but it's something.

Recyclebank: 40 quick points

Happy Valentine's Day, on the early side.  In order to celebrate, visit Recyclebank for a quick 40 points.  20 points at the bottom of the landing page for a recipe and a quiz on the next page.  Enjoy my french toast recipe!

My Coke Rewards Wednesday deal: FTD $20

For those who have waited to buy flowers for their sweetie, today's Wednesday deal says it is an FTD $20 Reward Code for 200 points, instead of 500, but when you click on the link, it says 150 points.  That's actually a reasonably good deal.

Pampers points: Five free points (Seriously, they do have some good prizes.)

I was starting to get a little nervous, as it had been a while since Pampers gave out any free codes.  Fortunately, they have come through again for us.  Earn five points with code: TWITL9E8XAGTG12.

And just because you don't have a kid in diapers is no reason not  to join.  A quick glance of the reward catalog showed me movie tickets, gift cards and magazines, among other prizes.  If you are not yet a member, you can join here. Then check the Pampers posts for previous codes.

Shout out to for this code.

Swagbucks: Earn 14 SB with promotional bills

Every so often, Swagbucks runs a cute promotion where, if you earn certain promotional bills, you get a bonus.  In this case, it's Valentine's Day bills.  Get all five and get a 14 point bonus.  Valuing SB at 1.1 cents each, that's a $0.15 prize!  Whoo-hoo!  Hey, I said I'd give you freebies, not make you rich.  Doesn't matter, Swagbucks is a pretty cool program.

Seventh Generation Loyalty Program: Free points

So this is a new one to me.  Who knew that Seventh Generation has a loyalty program?  I clicked on a banner ad to connect me and found it.  Most of the decent prizes seem to start at about 50 points.

Join by clicking on a banner ad or the link here.

Free Points to Start

Nothing difficult: Most involve a video that you can play in the background or something similar.

3 points: Click here to get a point for watching the video and two more for answering the quiz questions.  Answers are: 3/4, Burlington, Milk>Flakes, Post-Consumer Recycled and 90%.

1 point: Watch (or don't watch) this video.

3 points: Write a sentence here.

1 point: Watch this Laurie Berkner video.  Note: If you have kids four and under, Laurie's CD's are wonderful for them.  My three-year old twins love her music.

Papa John's: Hey, we all won a free pizza!

It's a good thing that coin came up heads last night, since I really don't have that much else to write about.  As mentioned in this post, if Americans voted correctly for the coin toss, anyone who entered would get a free pizza and two liter bottle of soda from Papa John's.  We may be falling behind the world in a lot of areas, but combine a free pizza and football, and there's no way Americans get it wrong.

Too bad I have ridiculous amounts of pizza left over from last night and that I'm a Patriots fan.

Ebates and others: Valentine's Day savings

Need a last minute present for your sweetie?  There's deals all over, so keep your eyes open.  Here's the best one I've seen (and the one I used):

Teleflora is offering 25% by entering code TFVDAYBZNW at checkout.  Put it in the promo code box on the checkout page and hit "apply."  It will automatically adjust the price.

But wait, there's more!  If you make the purchase through shopping site, you can get an additional 20% back into your Ebates account.  Just go to Ebates, enter "Teleflora" in the search box and it will take you to the Teleflora site.

But that's not all!  If you sign up through the link above, we each get an additional $5 (or you can get a $10 gift card, instead).  So your total is 25% off from entering the code at checkout, 20% back from Ebates and an additional $5.

And that's not all!  Wait, actually it is.

My Coke Rewards: Confusing, but potentially lucrative, free points

This whole "donate points for a chance to get a bunch" thing seems to be catching on, although February's Heart Truth promo is on the confusing side.  That link can be found through the bonus offers page, which reads, "Dbl. Pts. on Diet Coke® w/ Donation Enter The Heart Truth™ multipack code AND donate pts. to it in Feb. Credited on 3/8."

If the promo is similar to last year's, there are special 12-packs to promote the event.  This program isn't as good as the current Arctic Home game, since each double-points code will only get you an additional 10 points but, if you drink a lot of Diet Coke, there is an opportunity here (It costs 35 points to enter.).  Keep an eye out.
Special thanks to Team Flyertalk for pointing it out.

Free Swagbucks for watching a video

Sign on to Swagbucks and click on the pop-up to earn a SB for watching a one-minute video.  And hey, you can watch it twice!  Whoo-hoo!

Stouffer's Dinner Club points: 10 free points

It's time for this month's survey and poll.  Two minutes will get you 10 points.  No guarantee that an additional 13 minutes will save you 15% or more on your auto insurance, though.

My Coke Rewards: Wednesday Deal

A rollup flexible keyboard?  What's scary is that this is the best deal of the past several weeks.
