My Coke Rewards: Hilton and Holidays

My Coke Rewards has launched a Boxes of Joy game, where you can win a prize instantly. It costs one code to play, and it appears that, if you use the code to enter, you will not get points for that code. Skip the rip-off. Instead, see section 3b in the rules for a free entry. You can enter up to three times per day.

Don't have a Hilton Hhonors account? Sign up here and get 100 MCR points.

My Coke Rewards Annoyance and the Lost 25 Days of Christmas

MCR has a new game out. Enter a code, click the button and get told that you didn't win. The game may be called "Boxes of Joy," but I've found it to be boxes of something else not suitable for public printing.

Be careful with this one: It tells you to enter a code from one of your caps, but if you use the code to play, you don't get points for it. Instead, see the rules here, in particular, Rule #3, sub-category b. It gives you a link to play for free and, while previous Coke contests had capped you at five free entries per day, this one caps you at forty. So I played forty times. And lost forty times. It didn't cost me anything except some time and the feeling in my typing fingers. I could play using the other accounts in my household, but why bother?

Disney Movie Rewards usually does the "25 days of Christmas" starting in December. It has not been announced this year. Too bad. The promo gave five points per day, so it was a good way to accumulate a bonus or two.

The Annual CVS Black Friday Freebies

There are four truly great days of the year at CVS: The third day after Halloween, the third day after Easter, the third Day after Christmas and Black Friday. The first three are the days that all the candy from the holiday goes on sale. It will start at 50% off and, a few days later, will be 75% off. If you wait for the 75% off, however, you risk getting stuck with just Whoppers and Necco Wafers, so use your judgment and scout it out.

The fourth day is Black Friday. It's actually Black Friday plus the day before and after, but if you go on Thursday, you risk the shelves not being stocked and, if you go on Saturday, you risk stuff being gone. Of course, you can always get a rain check, but who wants to get started?

CVS extrabucks

CVS has a rewards program called extrabucks (EB), which are rebates that can be used for any purchase at CVS.. On certain items, they will give you back EB when you purchase the item. For example, they might have an offer that gives you $2 in extrabucks when you buy a $6 tin of cookies. After you make the purchase, your receipt will have a coupon for $2 that can be used at CVS toward your next purchase.

Every year on Black Friday weekend, CVS has a bunch of items that are "free after EB." For example, there might be a toothbrush on sale for $2 that comes with an EB coupon for $2. Usually, there's one or two of those each week. For Black Friday, there are usually at least a dozen. The downside is that they have been offering less and less each year. This year, there are only 13 items, two of which you can buy two of.

How to Do It

You'll need a CVS circular and a self-checkout register. Also, print out the $.50 Colgate toothpaste coupon from cvs.com before going. The deals are usually about the same nationwide, but there are occasionally substitutions. Each year, I work out the way to maximize your free items. This year, you can get 15 items, all referenced below (and listed in the circular) for $.27 OOP (out of pocket). The items would sell for a total of $22.85 without coupons. Here's how you do it:
Find the most expensive item. In this case, it's the "No Gray Quick Fix." It doesn't matter if you are actually going to use the item, since you can always donate it to charity if you don't. Remember, it's free.

We're going to put the NGQF to the side for the moment and start with our most expensive combination. It includes the GUM toothbrush ($2), the Trolli candy ($2) and the Starburst/Skittles, Excedrin and CVS Pantiliners, which are $1 each. Finally, add in a Hershey's or Reese's bar for $.77. The total will be $7.77, and you'll receive $7.77 in EB on your receipts.

Now, move to the next most expensive combination, which is the No Gray ($5.79), Orbit gum ($1) and M&Ms/Twix/Airheads ($.79). That combination totals $7.58. Use the EB from the previous transaction to buy these three items. Alas, $.19 goes to waste ($7.77-$7.58).

Finally, go to the last combo, including a second toothbrush (These are two per household.), a Starbucks Doubleshot Espresso ($1.50) the second pantiliners (also two per household) and the Colgate toothpaste. Scan your CVS card at the coupon counter and you'll get a coupon for $2.50. Combined with the $.50 coupon from cvs.com, you'll get the toothpaste for free. These items cost $7.50 totals, meaning that $.08 from the previous transaction goes to waste. At the end, You'll have $7.50 worth of extracare bucks to use at a future date. Since everything cost you $7.77 OOP, you just got 15 items for $.27.

I recommend doing these at the self-checkout register so you don't drive the cashier and the line behind you crazy. If there is a problem, don't panic. A CVS associate will come over and help you. Trust me, you won't be the only one doing this.

Have a happy and safe holiday.

Double My Coke Rewards points 11/16-11/20

These are the only codes that I hoard, and I do so for the double points promos like this one. 12-packs of Diet Coke, Coke Zero and Coca-Cola will get you double through 11/20.

I have to admit, I gave in and had a Coke Zero this weekend. It was really good. Back on the soda wagon.

Kellogg's Family Rewards: Points and a Promo

First, head over to KFR and enter code IHEARTBONUSCODES for 100 points.

Next, start hoarding codes. From 11/16-11/25, KFR will be offering triple points on uploaded receipts and those generated by a loyalty card, while offering double points for codes entered online. You must buy and enter the codes within 14 days of purchases, but I have no way of knowing if they can track when purchases were made if you simply enter the code online.

Disney Movie Rewards: Monthly Points

I got my link for DMR over the weekend for my free monthly points. If you didn't see yours, check your spam folder. If you still don't see it, shoot them an email and they'll manually credit the points.

Retailers have caught on that people show up the day after holidays hoping for discounted candy, so they've pushed it back a few days. But it's three days later, so there should be at least some 50% off stuff by now.

Disney Movie Rewards and some subtle begging

I'm going to be traveling for the next few days, so posting might be less frequent. Oh, please bear with me, today has been a loooonnnngggg day.

First, I just got my monthly points link from DMR last night, so keep an eye out for yours. I didn't get one last month, but I emailed them and they awarded me the points.


So I hate to do this, because nobody likes listening to bloggers shill credit cards, but I'm going to ask for your help for the next time you apply for a credit card or do an app-o-rama.

And by helping me, you'll be helping you! As you know, bloggers receive a commission when somebody applies through their site for a credit card. Thus, there is always an inherent conflict of interest. But the companies that provide links will only let you keep them if you get a minimum number of applications per month.

So here's the deal: I will give you 100% of whatever commission I receive. I'm just looking for applications to keep the links active. You can see all the details here, but it's pretty easy. Once you get approved, let me know at mef730@gmail.com. I'll keep an eye out for the application. It doesn't tell me who did what, but if your email coincides with an application, I can connect them. They're usually pretty good about tracking for me, although it may not convert if you have to call and speak to a representative who processes it manually.

That's all. Have a good night, everyone.

Free toothpaste at CVS

This one is kind of cool. A number of different Colgate toothpaste brands are on sale at CVS for $3.00. The coupon dispenser will print you an instant $2.00 coupon and there is a $1.00 coupon in the Sunday newspaper (which means that it can also likely be found online). That results in a price of, um, er, oh yeah, free! And it's a real free, not the "here's some extrabucks" kind.

20 Coke entries for an amusement park ticket (I think?)

So I received a notice telling me that, if I enter 20 codes before 8/14, I'll get a free ticket to one of a number of amusement parks:


"Get a ticket to one of your favorite amusement parks or waterparks, including Cedar Point, Knott's Berry Farm, Kings Island & more. Enter 20 codes from participating MCR packages by 8/14 to enjoy this offer."
But when I check the fine print and open the email, only Cedar Point is listed as a ticket you can get for 20 code entries. All the others are listed as being available for the bargain price of 1,000 points. Um, no thank you.

Added "enhancement:" If you do enter codes through the special link toward Cedar Point, you don't get points for it.

Uber and Lyft: Sign-up bonuses

If you are one of the nine remaining people in the world who haven't signed up for Uber or Lyft ride services yet (There were only about 12 people left when I signed up, so don't feel bad.), here are a couple of reasons to do so: free credits.

I used my Lyft credits today, since they expire in a couple of days.  I found the drivers to be a bit more interactive with Lyft than Uber and the prices a touch cheaper (no surge pricing during rush hour today, for instance).  On the other hand, there are more Uber drivers and the app is a little more  user-friendly.  But on a the third hand, we each get the credits below if you sign up with my referral code.  Nothing like a couple of free rides.

Double My Coke Rewards points at Sprite

I guess it's good.  Through June 14, enter Sprite codes for double MCR points.  It's really too bad I've given up soda.

Kellogg's shoots KFR; long live KFR

Well, it had to happen.  A few weeks ago, I posted about an "enhanced" KFR program.  I didn't know what the enhancement would be, just that there was an enhancement coming.  And here it is.

Instead of printing codes on the inside of packages, KFR is going to scanning of receipts and linked supermarket loyalty cards.  So why is that bad?
  • Anyone who has ever had to upload a receipt knows that the tools can be very clunky.
  • No more sharing of codes (good for them, bad for us)
  • It may slowly lead to the end of bonus codes.
No guarantee that bonus codes, where I get the majority of my points are going away, but these changes can't help.

And now, for something different...

Well, not really.  Here's a MCR code for three points.  Please post once you have used it so that others will know.  Thanks!

And a quick favor to ask...

So I have a quick favor to ask, and it will help both of us:

Several months ago, a company was nice enough to give me credit card links so that I could make my fortune and retire a wealthy man, rolling in bags of money.  Funny how that works. Late last year, I read an article about the TSA confiscating a child's toy. The parent of that child used the publicity to start a campaign to get people to donate toys to charity, so I decided that any money I get from links will go to a charity.

Bookmark this page.  Really.  Next time you need a credit card, apply through the link above (It helps to clear your cookies before using the link.). I'm also happy to rebate the entire commission to you, as long as you let me know when you applied for it and what you applied for.

A couple of things:

1) You may have heard about the hundreds of dollars the bloggers get from the credit card companies.  So have I.  Alas, I have to go through a third party that takes a healthy chunk of the commission from me, so you won't get rich either from the applications.  But it's enough to buy a kid new shoes.

2) I have no way of identifying who is actually approved for a card, just that there was an approval.  And occasionally, cards get approved through my site without generating a commission.  Usually, it has to do with stored cookies, but sometimes, well, I don't know enough about these referral programs to know why bad things sometimes happen.  In other words, it is, as Billy Joel would say, A Matter of Trust.

And that's all.  Any questions, hit me at mef730@gmail.com.  Otherwise, here's the link once again.

Thanks,
Mike

Pampers Gifts to Grow: 15 points

What's with all these 15 point codes?  Not that I'm complaining, just that I'm used to the 5 or 10-pointers.

Enter TWITPAR789NLL15 here.

Tuesday, May 26, 2015

Pampers Gifts to Grow: 15 points

More Pampers Points.  Maybe I should have another kid?

Kellogg's Family Rewards: Enhancements coming?

Most of us know that any time a program is "enhanced," it gets devalued.  I got an email today from KFR telling me that in June, the program will be "bigger, better and easier than ever!"  Uh oh...

Free movie tickets from My Coke Rewards

I was scolded last night for not writing enough about MCR, so it's a good thing that I got a MCR deal in my email.  Even better, it's actually a pretty good one.  Enter six Minute Maid codes before June 30 and you will get a free movie at fandango.com.  You can get up to five codes, so they're fairly generous.  And if you're anything like me, movies=nap, which those of us with kids cherish.  Details are here.

By the way, this promo is a good reason to hoard codes.  Every once in a while, MCR runs a brand-specific promo.

Free Starbucks drink for you, free stars for me

As my 11 or so regular readers (Thanks extended family!) know, I'm a Starbucks junkie.  And now, here's a chance for me to benefit from your hard work!  Oh, and you can benefit, too.

Sign up here and you'll get a free drink when you register a Starbucks rewards card and allow them to send you emails (to the email address of your choice).  And I get six stars.  For the uninitiated, you get a star every time you make a purchase.  Get twelve stars and you get a free drink, which means that I get a free drink if I refer, hang on, let me grab the calculator, oh yeah, two people.  Enjoy!

And now, off to find my t-shirt with a picture of Marty the Rabbit Boy and his Musical Blender.

Pampers Gifts to Grow: 30 points

Another 15 points from Pampers.  Still waiting for those movie tickets to pop back up...

TWITMOM89CNLL15 for 15
TWIT8943222FF15 for 5

Kellogg's Family Rewards: 20 points

Apparently, KFR read some of my previous posts, because they knocked down the freebies to 20 points for this code.  No matter, enter POPTARTSAVENGERS.

Sunday, May 10, 2015

Pampers Gifts to Grow: 35 points

Nothing like some Mother's Day Pampers points.  And as a father, I can assure you that there is nothing like having kids that are no longer in diapers.

Go to Pampers and enter codes FBM5D3ARW788815 and TWIT89CN4522215 for 15 points total.  I think the first is the 10-pointer.  And for another 20, enter CM5TY218FRM2015.

Kellogg's Family Rewards: 50 points

My wife is eating something called a "Veggie Dog."  Seriously?  I never actually believed that there was meat in hot dogs, anyway.

Oh, yeah, 50 points from KFR.  LETSHEARITFORMOM.  No, I mean, that's the code.

Kellogg's Family Rewards: 50 points

All of a sudden, the codes are popping up again.  Enter CELEBRATESMOTHER at KFR for 50 points.

Tuesday, May 5, 2015

Pampers points: 25 free points

I'm pretty sure the first code is ten points and the second is five, but either way, you'll get 15 points at Pampers.

I also got 10 points for watching a video at the bottom of this page.

FBCIN5893333315

Kellogg's Family Rewards: 50 points

Here's another 50 points.  Enjoy with code KFRFIESTA4POINTS.

Disney Movie Rewards: Monthly points

I got my monthly email with free Disney Rewards points, which probably means you got yours, too.  I got six points this month.

Are all these free points worth it?  I don't know.  But over time, I've gathered just over 3,000 points.  A few of those came from DVDs that we bought or Listia, but I'd say 80-90% of them were freebies.  2,800 points gets me a Bluetooth keyboard, whatever that is, while 3,500 gets a really cool Goofy clock.  The current top prize is 15,000 points, a private tour of Walt Disney Studios.

Recyclebank: 155 points

I have to admit, I don't check Recyclebank as often as I should.  But it's always important to check at the beginning of the calendar month, since the site usually does one big promo per month.  This month is all about organic waste and is worth 155 points.

Pampers Points: 15 points

A couple of new codes for the Pampers points collectors in the group.

FB89TACE2445415: 10 Points
TWIT89N22344415: 5 Points

Kellogg's Family Rewards: 150 points

One thing about Kellogg's: They know how to screw up a website.  I was finally able to sign in after about a week.  On the other hand, I have a bunch of codes to enter.

LEGGOMYEGGOBONUS: 25 points

Shutterfly offer at My Coke Rewards

I've never actually used Shutterfly, mostly because the internet still scares me a little, but this redemption offer from MCR looks like a good one: five points for 100 prints.  Keep an eye on S&H costs.

I don't actually see a lot of 20 point freebies.  Normally, it's 5 or 10.  Still, who am I to turn them down.  Head to Pampers and enter code: C4M8T4YFRDM2015.

Monday candy

Just remember, tomorrow is one of my favorite days of the year: the day after Easter, when all the Easter candy goes on sale.  The sweet spot is somewhere between 50% and 75% off.  You'll have more choice at the former, but better prices at the latter.  If you like Peeps, you can probably wait.

Kellogg's Family Rewards: 200 points

Hope everyone is having a lovely holiday season.  In honor of the holidays, here's 200 Kellogg's points.  Thanks to Hunt4freebies for help with the codes.

Kellogg's Family Rewards: 150 points

I'm on the west coast this week and my head hurts.  I don't think the two are related.

Here are 150 points from Kellogg's.

EVERYONELOVESKFR: 100 POINTS
SCOOBYSWEEPS4YOU: 50 POINTS

Meanwhile, my kids have become obsessed with Frozen cereal (from the movie, not really cold cereal).  Fortunately, I get codes on the boxes.  And I'm a sucker.

Kellogg's, My Coke Rewards and Disney Movie Rewards

Sorry, I'm feeling a bit lazy today, so I"m going to do this all in one chunk.

Kellogg's: 150 points for entering codes KELLOGGSREWARDSU and RESCUEYOURPOINTS.  I can't remember how much each code gives, so try them both.

My Coke Rewards: Head through the link and invite five friends.  Once they accept, you'll get a coupon for a free 20 oz at Target.  Hey, you must know five people or have five email addresses.

Disney Movie Rewards: Five points each for codes FEAST and BIGHERO6.

Wow, dry spell.  All I've seen over the past few days is another of these Pampers "scroll down and click 'I've read it' for 10 points."  It's here.

Pampers Points: 10 points

I tend to miss these ones occasionally, since they're not codes, but I caught it this time.  Go here, scroll down to where you can click the "I read it" button and click.

Jet.com: Free membership in online shopping warehouse club

It took me a while to figure this one out, but it appears that Jet.com, which hasn't actually launched yet, is the online equivalent of the warehouse club.  I laughed it off at first, but after reading a Bloomberg Business article and discovering that this guy is the one who started diapers.com, I have decided that he is probably the real deal.  Anyway, it's free for six months, so the most I have to lose is, well, zero.

Oh, if you sign up through my link, they will shower me with glory.  Well, not really, but I might get something.  You can too, if you want to start a conga in the comments.


Disney Movie Rewards: Check your email

I just got my monthly email for Disney Movie Rewards.  Normally, I get 5-10 points but, for some reason, I got 25 this month.  I'm not complaining.

Kellogg's Family Rewards: Bonus points for Apple & Cinammon Jacks

One of the nice things about KFR is that if you don't show up for a while, they'll give you bonus points.  I got 100 for entering a code.  but the 100 bonus points for every Apple/Cinnamon Jacks code through 2/2 is for everybody.  It's a good reason to hoard codes.

They must have a lot of Jacks in inventory.

Tuesday, January 20, 2015

And we're back!

And here's 15 Pampers Points for people just like you.  Not you, people just like you.  Okay, you can have them too.  Just enter code TWITSCLBBECMM14.
