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  Otherwise, here's the link once again.

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  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: 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.

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.


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
