Kellogg's Family Rewards: 50 points

I've always liked the movie Fright Night.  Not the remake, the original.  And now, it comes with a bonus!  50 points at KFR for FRIGHTNIGHTBONUS.

I'm tired and cranky.  Here's 100 KFR points.  Well, the code for it, anyway.

Recyclebank: 25 points

Quick: What was higher, 2013 confectionary sales during Halloween or the GDP of Belize?  Hmm...

Go here, click through the slides and find out.  Oh, and get 25 points.

Kellogg's Family Rewards: 125 points

Cool, three codes today!  Worth 50, 50 and 25, respectively at KFR.


Anyone think they're just calling 'em in now when it comes to getting new codes?  And what's with that chocolate business?  Their chocolate cereal is simply awful.

Pampers Gifts to Grow: 10 points

I have to say, I'm disappointed.  I'm gone for four days and the only thing I come back to is a lousy 10 points from Pampers.  Tant pis.

But you can feel free to go here, scroll down and click "I read it," and you're good to go with your free points.

Kellogg's Family Rewards: Possible free points in email

Today, I got a 200 point code in my email, for no apparent reason.  My wife got a birthday email today with 100 points.

Which makes me wonder, what would happen if I went into my KFR account every day and changed me birthday?

New site like Ibotta or Checkout 51; cash for purchasing groceries

I have no idea how to describe these sites, so let's just say they give you a shopping list and you get cash back if you buy any of the items and take a picture of the receipt.  Really, it's easier than it sounds.

Note: The sign-up link below earns me $1.  Yes, a whole dollar!  If you use it, it would make me happy.

Snap by Groupon is better than Ibotta and as good as Checkout 51.  There are 42 items on the list this year, including a lot of unbranded options (e.g., You get $1 cash back for buying any gallon of milk, $1 for any bag of candy, $.25 for kale, $.50 for toothpaste and $.50 for apples.).  There's also cash back for certain branded products, such as $2.00 back for Huggies wipes or $1.00 for Barilla pasta.  Added bonus:You can do some offers more than once.

Since many of these products advertise on different sites, there is a good chance that they will be on more than one site and you can double or even triple your rebate on the same product.

Kellogg's Family Rewards: 120 points

I spent a lot of time on that first code trying to figure out why Elvis loves bonuses and why KFR didn't know how to spell Elvis.  Then I realized...




Pampers Gifts to Grow: 10 points

They've definitely picked up the pace here, leading me to wonder whatever happened to Huggies.  Meh, I'm now over 2,000 PPs.


Disney Movie Rewards: Monthly points

Check your email for your monthly newsletter from DMR.  I got six points this month.  Whoo-hoo!

Recyclebank: 150 points

I'm glad to know that RB is still doing its monthly "biggie."  This month's is a bit of a pain, since you have to click on links and they don't open in a new window, but if that's the worst thing that happens to me today (It won't be.  My wife is out of town and I'll have to control the kids alone tonight.), then I'm doing okay.  Here's the link.

On Credit Card Deals...

I made a conscious decision a while ago to take only minimal steps to monetize this blog.  While I do get some revenues from Google Adsense clicks and the occasional program referral, the money is truly minimal (averaging under $10 per year).  This site is a hobby for me.  I get to be snarky and write whatever I want, while finding free points for items that I may never use anyway.  It's all part of the fun for me, and I love it.  Once I start trying to generate revenue on a constant basis, it becomes work.  Remember when you were forced to read a book for school?  Kind of took away from the enjoyment, didn't it?

Great books that we read in school that are so much more fun when they're not assigned: The Good Earth, The Westing Game.

Having said all of the above, I am not immune to the siren song of credit card affiliate links, either.  To that end, I have teamed with to offer credit cards at my other site,, a site for novices to frequent flyer programs (i.e., if you have >100 posts at Flyertalk, this site may be too basic for you.).  It's a third-party site, so I don't make as much as the big guys do, but it's something.

The link to my credit card affiliate site is here.  If you are considering any cards, I'd be grateful if you'd take a look there.  There are different banners for different types of cards.

And that's it.  That will be the last mention of this affiliate site here and any future references to credit cards will be entirely incidental.  Since I started this blog in 2011, I have had nine posts that mentioned the words "credit card," and I'm guessing that will be about the same number going forward.

Thank you again for taking the time not only to read today's missive but this blog in general.  It's nice to know that something I write is actually getting read.

Pampers Gifts to Grow: 15 points

Okay, so I'm running a little behind on these codes, so here's a big one.  Here's 15 points from Pampers GTG: twit89cnmecke14
