Sigh, they've made it difficult again to find points.  Here's 25 for taking a five question quiz.

So here's a MCR code:


Please post when you use the code.  Thank you.

Kellogg's: Ridiculous 1,000 point "bonus opportunity" and a collecting strategy

I received an email from KFR offering me 1,000 points for entering five codes from a variety of cookies or crackers products.  The catch (of course there's one) is that you need to enter the codes by Friday, meaning a lot of eating between now and then.  Unlikely.

There is a way to beat these promos, though.  I'm not normally a fan of hoarding reward codes, but for programs like My Coke Rewards or KFR, which frequently offer bonuses for entering codes from one category, it may make sense to keep the codes separate until a bonus appears.  You run the risk of points devaluing or a particular prize going away, but the devaluation will usually be more than made up for by the bonus.  Just a thought.

Recyclebank: 25 points

For once, Recyclebank made a customer-friendly change.  Now, instead of forcing me to hunt for new bonus opportunities, they are putting the new bonuses right on the front page, which means a daily check can be done in seconds.  Here's today's, for 25 points.

Kellogg's Family Rewards: 100 points

Something very unusual happened yesterday: I actually entered a code from a Kellogg's product, not a free code.  It does happen occasionally when your kids go through boxes of cereal like mine do, but I prefer the free codes.  Here are two for KFR:


50 points apiece.

Pampers Points: 10 points

Whenever you go to GTG's website, it's always worth scrolling down to check for articles that will give you points for reading them.  The article in this link will give you 10 points once you scroll down and click on the "I read it" button.

Top Cash Back: Free "Frozen" Big Golden Book for new members

Note 1: I first saw this deal at hunt4freebies, although it's making its way around the internet
Note 2: You must be a new TCB member to take advantage of it

So if your kids just can't get enough of the Frozen movie, here's a chance to get a book for them.  Just what you always wanted, right?  If you don't like the offer, just let it go.  Let it go, can't hold back anymore..sorry, got distracted there.


  • Clear your cookies/cache in your browser.  Here's a simple explanation how.
  • Sign up for TopCashback here*.  TCB is a cash back shopping site.  Not my favorite, but good for a free book (and occasional other freebies).  
  • Type "book depository" into the search bar along the top.
  • The first offer is the one for the free book.  Buy one copy and nothing else.  Shipping is free.
  • Within 30-60 days, $9.80 will show up in you TCB account.
And that's all.  Congratulations, and enjoy your new book.

*I do not receive any referral bonus if you use my link above.  If you make a future purchase from TCB, however, I could receive a bonus.  Thank you for your consideration.

Pampers Points: 15 points

One of the things that I don't like about GTG is that they don't give me cute codes to use.  Thus, they're tough to memorize, thus, I have to keep flipping back and forth on tabs.  But they're free, so here's 15:

10: FBJULHAP8764O14
5: TWIT87JL6HPY014

Kellogg's Family Rewards: 100 points

I'm not sure how I missed this one, particularly since it was an email, not a tweet, but here's 100 points from KFR.  Code: KFRC-ELEB-RATE-SUSA.

Midweek update: Recyclebank: 150 points

Ah, much better.  Here's the monthly Recyclebank "big bonus."  Click through slideshows here and get 150 points.

Out of Office Notice

Hi all,

I'll be out until July 14.  I will try to check in every few days but internet access might be spotty.  Have a great holiday!

And now for something completely different...

I've decided not to launch my petition to get Reagan National Airport renamed "Perry the Platypus Airport."  Instead, I'm joining this petition to get it renamed Tim Howard Airport.

But Perry could totally score off of Howard.

Recyclebank: A bunch of points

Recyclebank added a bunch of slide shows and videos to its "Earn" site today.  The problem is, I forgot to copy the links.  So just head here and scroll down.

Stouffers Gifts to Grow: Ending 12/31/14

Well, it had to happen.  Stouffers finally realized that nobody pays a premium for frozen meals and ended their program.  It ends on 12/31/14 and you can earn and use points until then.  I'm not taking chances on prizes running out and ordered my $25 Amazon gift card today.  It's a good program and I'm sorry to see it end.

Pampers Gifts to Grow: 10 points

I've grown a little suspicious of Pampers.  In the past few months, they've given out more codes than in the couple of years prior.  But until they "enhance" their program, I'll continue to take advantage of it.

Use code FBCAN898DAY9814 here.
