MCR: Extra points through Kroger

A reader was kind enough to email me (and then email me again, when it became clear that I didn't know what I was talking about) about a promotion involving Kroger.  Link to My Coke Rewards through this Kroger link and you'll receive an extra ten points for participating 12-packs, up to 30 for the lifetime of the promotion, which is mid-July.  Once per log-in, so you may need to log out and go back in.  Please read the rules on this one, as Coke made it complicated.  Or maybe Kroger did.  Or it was a conspiracy.

My Coke Rewards: Double points on zero calorie sodas (6/25 and 6/26)

This deal is actually a pretty good one.  Today and tomorrow, get double points on all of Coke's zero calorie drink 12-packs.  Time to use up those codes you've been hoarding!

Kellogg's Family Rewards: 25 points

I always thought that you magically learned how to barbecue things once you bought a house.  I keep burning the food, though.  Still, here's a cool KFR code: EASYBARBECUEBITE.

Kellogg's Family Rewards: 50 points

Today's KFR code is NUTR-ITIO-NINA-BOWL.  Since they're giving me free points, I won't make any comments on the actual nutrition levels of many of their cereals.  Oops, I think I just did.  But Kashi is good.

Kellogg's Family Rewards: 50 points

Whoo-hoo, summer has arrived!  Each night, it will get darker one minute and two seconds earlier than the previous night, meaning my kids will fall asleep one minute and two seconds earlier.  To celebrate the occasion, Kellogg's has been kind enough to offer a 50 point reward code.  FIRS-TDAY-OFSU-MMER.  Enter it here.

Pampers gifts to grow: 15 points

Cool, not one, but two codes!  Five points for TWIT1SUM98CE014 and ten for FB831SUM98C6014.  Enter your codes here.

I wonder why all those numbers in the middle are the same?

Disney Movie Rewards: 10 points

Alas, the last of the DMR codes.  Head here and enter CTSEND for 10 points.

On the plus side, there's a one-hour Phineas and Ferb special tonight, so at least the DMR promo is ending on a good note.

Disney Movie Rewards: five points

It really feels like a Friday and I'm looking for a fifteen point code.  Alas, it isn't.  But you can still get five points at DMR with code CTSL8R.

100 My Coke Rewards points for joining Rapid Rewards (Southwest Airlines)

The offer has always been 60 in the past and, frankly, I don't know when they changed it.  But it's there and, even if you never fly Southwest, you might as well take advantage of it, since it's free.  Check it out here.

Recyclebank: 25 points

Recyclebank can be a pain sometimes, since you often have to search all, over the site to find anything that pays points, and even then, the new offers are infrequent.

Today was much nicer, with this 25 point offer right on the front page.  Enjoy.

Disney Movie Rewards: five points

I wonder whose job it is to come up with these codes.  Some summer intern, perrhaps?  Anyway, go to DMR and enter CTSFZY.

Disney Movie Rewards: five points

It's Grrrrrr-eat!  Actually, it's CTSGR8.  See what I did there?  Last three of code sound like "great."  Oh, never mind.  Just get your points here.

Kellogg's Family Rewards: 50 points

CELEBRATEOURDADS!  No, really.  As much as I believe that it something we should all do, it's also worth 50 points at KFR.

My Coke Rewards: Fuze Fridays

One of my readers was kind enough to point out that I had missed an easy MCR promo.  Until the end of the summer, Fuze 12-packs are worth double points on Fridays.  That's an easy way to pick up some bonus points that don't count against your weekly limit.

Most people look forward to the beginning of the summer, which is the longest day of the year.  I hate it.  My kids refuse to fall asleep until it gets dark, meaning I have kids running into my room screaming, "It's too light out for me to go to sleep!" while I'm trying to watch The Lost Boys, er, Orange is the New Black (Let's see who gets that reference.).  Bring it on, winter solstice!

Pampers Gifts to Grow: 15 points

You know what I found out this weekend?  There's a Phineas and Ferb "exhibit" at Epcot.  What are the chances that I could get away with dumping the kids on my wife so I could go visit my two favorite cartoon characters?  Yeah, I didn't think so, either.

How about 15 Pampers points?  These are the ones I could hunt down over the weekend.  There may be more out there.

TWIT58FA76DY014 for five points
FBTNSK8FA876014 for 10

Pampers Gifts to Grow: 10 points

Head over to Pampers and scroll down about one quarter of the way.  Look for the orange box that says "earn extra points for some recommended reading."  Click, scroll and then click the button that says "I read it."  You'll be ten points richer and know more about bike safety (assuming you read the article).

That's pretty much it.

You can repay me in donuts.

Disney Movie Rewards: 15 points

Double bonus!  Not only is the DMR code worth 15 points but it also features a scene from Phineas and Ferb.  What else could one ask for?

Actually, I do have a question?  What on Earth did I write to make Google Adsense put an ad for Kitty Litter under this post?

Friday Freebie: Free York Peppermint Patties

I try to do a lot of the legwork on my own for the free points, but when it comes to the Friday freebies, I often rely on others.  Today's yummy FF comes to us courtesy of

Get a free York Peppermint Patty just by signing up for Saving Star, which gives you cool ecoupons.  You can find out more here.

Disney Movie Rewards: Five points

Ya know what I like most about these month-long promotions?  It guarantees me something to write about on the slow days.

Today's code: CTSJUN

Treasure Trooper:

So Treasure Trooper isn't exactly a loyalty program.  It's more a "get paid to do stuff, like submit an email address (Don't use your main one! or survey" type site.  In the past several years, I've earned $1,869.04 (give or take) from it.  Please see the full disclosure section at the bottom after reading through the details.

Here's how it works: There is a list of tasks, which range from signing up for a newsletter to trying out a product.  The easiest offers (sign up for a newsletter types) pay the lowest, starting at $.25 and moving up from there.  The highest are the trial offers, and they can run $20+.  There is also a $100 treasure hunt, a game involving dragons and monthly bonuses, as well as a bunch of other stuff that I can't remember.

What I like

  • It's not a scam and it's free to join.  They pay once per month and have never missed a payment.  They get paid by the advertiser and then pay you, so they accrue for it each month.
  • The admin staff is very active, and there is a chat room if you have questions.
  • If you do an offer that requires a trial period, they're easy to cancel if you don't want to keep it.
What I don't like
  • Offers don't always credit.  Nobody knows why.  They tend to credit very, very well when you first get started, though.  See below for helpful hints.
  • There is a cash shopping area, but it doesn't pay very well.  You are much better off at Mr. Rebates or Big Crumbs.
Helpful hints to get offers to approve:

A lot of the offers are put up by the same advertisers, even if it doesn't say so.  Over time, they'll only credit so many offers to the same email address.
  • Don't use your main email address for offers or you will end up with a lot of spam.  Create a few new email addresses and use those.
  • Clear your cookies/cache after each offer.  It takes two seconds to do but will dramatically increase your approval rate.
  • If you do a trial offer, they can often be cancelled online.  Regardless, put a calendar note in your phone (or datebook; we don't discriminate here) to cancel the offer.
Referral Program: Full Disclosure

Yes, I get a referral bonus if you sign up through my link.  It goes two levels deep, so I get a smaller bonus for my referrals' referrals.  This month, there is an added referral bonus contest, so I may benefit more than usual.

And that's all.  Feel free to hit me with questions, etc.

Kellogg's Family Rewards: 70 points

I have no idea why two of these codes are 25 points and the third is 20, but they're free, so what do I care?  They're all over the web, so there may be more out there that I didn't see.  Go to KFR.


Disney Movie Rewards: 5 points (plus more coming)

Hooray for the summer!  From now until June 21, Disney will be posting daily codes worth five points each.  Today's code is CTSSUN.

Disney Movie Rewards: 10 points

After a weekend of play dates, I'm crevé, as the French would say it.  Yet I'm still out there looking for free crap.  How's that for dedication?

Why don't you start by hitting up DMR for 10 points with this code: CTS11P.

11P?  Yeah you know me!
