Shopkick: Beware the store detective

So I was wandering around a Walgreen's the other day, scanning my Shopkick products for points.  A not-so-stealthy store detective kept following me around, peeking around from behind aisles, checking out what I was doing.  I left the store five minutes and 200 points later, but I have to wonder what that detective was thinking.

Maybe I'll go back tomorrow.

Friday Freebie: Sleep supplement

Since I've been sick recently, I'll make today's freebie a sleep supplement.  Sleep: It does the body good.

Note: I've never used the stuff and am not endorsing it.  Just saying it's out there.

My Coke Rewards Wednesday Deal: Family Circle Magazine

Man, they must have a lot of magazines to get rid of, since they've been pushing them pretty hard.  Today's deal: Family Circle, for 50 points instead of 133.  How did they come up with 133, anyway?  Is Family Circle anything like Family Circus?  I hated that comic strip.

Old Orchard Juice games: Easy points

Old Orchard isn't one that I write about too often, since there aren't a lot of free code promos.  But there does appear to be an easy (and sometimes fun) way to generate points.

First, check out the list of opportunities here.  If you haven't signed up for the alerts, that's your first way to get easy points.  But number 2 on the list is the games.

The games offer multiple opportunities for points.  First, you get 10 points for every game you play, once per hour.  But you also get additional points if you do well at the games, and most don't take much practice to finish in the top three.  Join a tournament (or start one of your own and earn 10 points) and play.  For every player in the tourney, 10 points are added to the pool.  When the tournament is over, 1st place gets 50% of the points, with the net two getting 30% and 20%.  Given how many people enter and how badly they play, it shouldn't be hard to pick up a few.

And we're back! Don't forget the Disney Challenge

I'll actually be around for the next few weeks which means that I'll be here when nobody posts any freebies for us (It's been a crappy few weeks.).

But until then, don't forget to check out the Disney Challenge on Facebook every few weeks.  They run Disney-related puzzles that can earn you a few points toward your total.  Hey, every bit counts!

Sort of out of the office notice

I'll be out of town this week, but will attempt to keep up with things, even if they're a day behind.  Keep checking in!

Pampers Gifts to Grow adds Starbucks cards as rewards

Ya know what sucks?  Having a whole post done, only to have your internet die on you.  Our modem, which was already on its last legs, met its final end Saturday night, also leaving us without internet service for the weekend (and phone service for an hour or two, which is okay, since no one ever calls us anyway).

So Pampers finally bit the bullet and added a reward that is good for somebody without a toddler: Starbucks gift cards.  1,100 points gets you $10, which isn't great, but it's an infinite return on capital if all the points are free.

Friday Freebie: Estee Lauder perfume

Ooh, a free perfume sample from Estee Lauder.  I guess that's good.  I don't wear a lot of perfume, although I do have a  weakness for Bulgari bath products.

Thanks to for the tip.

Kellogg's Family Rewards: 75 points

Cool.  I'm beginning to like these football-themed promos.  Here's 75 points from KFR:


Kellogg's Family Rewards: Possible points

I got my usual weekly email from KFR with an opportunity to enter a sweepstakes.  I didn't win the sweepstakes, but the code 3t5j-b4tx-g7wl-mjr9 got me 100 points.  I don't know if the code is unique, but if it isn't, you probably have something similar in your email.

Recyclebank: 150 points

It's nice that RB always puts out a monthly offering of 100-200 points.  This month is football themed, not that that matters.  Points are points.  Click on 15 boxes, get 150 points.  How nice.  Go here to play.

My Coke Rewards Wednesday Deal: $50 gift card

I'm sure there's nothing too terrible about the gift card ($50 off a two-night stay at certain hotels), but any gift card for $50 on MCR, particularly at 70 points, warrants attention.  Be sure to read through the details, since too good to be true is generally too good to be true.

Recyclebank: 25 points

Check out Recyclebank for a quick 25 points on barbecuing.  That's all.
