Kellogg's Family Rewards: 50 points

Last night, I finally heard those four precious words that ever Daddy wants to hear from his 5-year old daughter: "I'm tired of Frozen."

In honor of that moment, here's 50 points on KFR with code JUST-BECA-USEB-ONUS.

Pampers Gifts to Grow: 10 points

First, please see my note about disappearing posts below.  Hopefully, this one hangs around.

In any case, here's ten points from Pampers, ending the month right.  FB789MEM0ZPR014

Disappearing posts

For some reason, every post that I have written since May 22 has disappeared.  I'm currently investigating the matter and, if necessary, will take it all the way to the head of the interweb.

Stay tuned.

Possible free Redbox DVD code

Rumor has it that if you text EMAIL to 727272 and then enter your email address, you'll get a free Redbox DVD code, good for two weeks.  Enjoy watching Frozen for the 50th time.

You may get a confirmation from Redbox that you need to confirm.

Recyclebank: 25 points

It's been a really lousy day.  First, I got hit with a $150 cash advance fee while trying to MS.  Then, my flight to Philadelphia tonight got cancelled.  And finally, I got charged an extra 35 cents at Potbelly for ordering a Strawberry-Banana smoothie instead of just a Strawberry one.

On the plus side, I did get 25 points for taking a Recyclebank quiz here.

Credit Sesame: Free credit score service (No, really, it's free. I'm serious.)

I'm not a big fan of credit score/protection services when it comes to value.  They always find a way to get a few bucks out of you if you sign up.  I do, however, use Credit Sesame when I feel like getting an update on my score.

Credit Sesame offers your Experian score, which is not the same as the more recognized FICO score but does give you a pretty good indication of where your FICO score is (FICO's model is proprietary.).  The inquiry is a "soft pull," which means that it does not show up on your credit report and will not affect your credit.

Why is it free?  Because they'll try to sell you extras, of course.  Unless you have a burning desire for their other services, you can ignore them.  

Bottom line: It's good to have a handle on where your credit score is and why it's there, and CS is a service that will get you most of the way for free.  Note that if you're actually applying for a mortgage, loan, etc., you may be better off paying for the FICO score.  But if you just want to keep an eye on your score, look for trends as you apply for credit cards, etc., Credit Sesame is a good place to start.

Check out the site here.  It may take a second to load.

Note: CS does claim to offer me a small (very small) amount of money if you sign up using this link.  It is much appreciated.  Will they actually pay me something?  Who knows.

Pampers Gifts to Grow: 15 points

I'm loving this Twitter thing.  Another 15 points from Pampers.  Is anyone else tempted to just start typing in random numbers and letters to see if you get any points?

Kellogg's Family Rewards: 1,000 bonus points for five codes before the end of May

Enter five KFR codes before the end of May and get 1,000 points.  Hey, it's better than not getting 1,000 points for entering five codes.  But it is a good reason to hoard your codes until a bonus shows up.

Pampers Gifts to Grow: 25 points

I have no idea why Pampers has all of a sudden gone so points crazy, but who am I to argue?  Head to their site and enter code HSPK9XNEW7OND13.  Then be happy.

Pampers gifts to grow points: 75 points

Cool, a double.  First, head here.  Next, enter code FBHAP99MD11V014 for 10 points.  Then FBJMAY8973TR01 for another 10.  Then, FBJMAY8973TR014 for yet another 10.  But wait, there's more!  Enter 99832MT8MFDEY14 for 25!  Next, enter code FBHAP99MD11V014 for 10 points.  Finally, go here, scroll to the bottom and click "I've read it" for 10 more.

Update: And fortunately, Hunt4Freebies is not as careless as I am, since she noticed that you can get 10 more points by going here, scrolling down and clicking "I read it."

Kellogg's Family Rewards: 225 points

You'll have to excuse my tardiness, but it's been a long weekend.  On the plus side, my kids asked me this weekend if there's a Children's Day, so I got to say, "Every day is children's day!" for the first time.  Almost as good as "because I said so!"

In the meantime, check out KFR and enter the following codes for points:

KFR: $20 Shutterfly credit

I'm not going to use mine, so here it is.  Good for one use only, so please post after using it.


FTD code from MCR

I'm almost embarrassed to mention this one, but freepointsite don't judge.  MCR is offering 15% off FTD flowers for only five points, which is essentially free. Please, don't use this link.  Get miles for your flowers.  Get cash back through a shopping site.  Do something.  But there are lots of other deals out there to be found.

So why do I even mention it?  Well, all the deals can't be good ones.

Watch a video (or don't watch a video), get points.  That's my favorite kind.  Visit your points here.

My Coke Rewards: Double points on Diet Coke 12-packs until 5/11

Diet Coke has apparently changed the design on its 12-packs.  Apparently, the company thinks that a makeover is what it needs to reverse declining sales.  Really, I don't care.  They're offering double points for a few days, so they could use that new Gap logo that looked like it was designed with Photoshop and I'd be happy.

Check your email for your Disney points today

It's been a late month for everyone, including Disney, but I finally got my link to free Disney points in my newsletter.  If you haven't gotten your monthly newsletter yet, check you spam folder.

Recyclebank: 100 points

Each month, RB puts out a big earning opportunity at the beginning of the month and then does very little for the rest.  They finally got around to doing May.  Go here, sign in and click on the button that says you will do whatever it is that they ask you to do.  Wait a few seconds (or more) for it to credit and then move on to the next one.

Kellogg's Family Rewards: 50 free points

Cinco de Mayo may be 24 hours in the past, but Kellogg's is kind enough to let the party continue.  Enter CINCODEMAYOPARTY at KFR for 50 free points.

Pampers Gifts to Grow: 10 points

Welcome back.  Hope you all had a nice weekend.  I got to spend an hour at my daughter's ballet recital.  She was lovely and quite proud of herself, although I'll have to have a little talk with the ballet instructor, since her (assigned) outfit made her look a bit like a Las Vegas showgirl.

Oh, yeah, the Pampers Points code. Here you go: FBJMAY8973CV014.

But it's really a lot more fun to talk about my kids.

Pampers Points: 25 points

Okay, I have to admit it: I cheated on you guys today.  My other blog was mentioned in a newspaper article and I've been dealing with that.  In the form of penance, I offer 25 Pampers points, which I have scrounged up from various sources on the internet (Thank you, internet dwellers.).  Enter the codes below here.
