Kellogg's Family Rewards: 125 points

On the downside, they're getting rid of codes on boxes. On the plus side, cereal was on sale for $1.88 before coupons this weekend.


Thanks to Hunt4Freebies for these freebies.

Pampers Points: 10 points

Well, here's a nice way to start off the week. 10 points from Pampers using code FB89C2N12NCLF15.

My Coke Rewards: 5 point redemption for a Shutterfly book

This redemption isn't too bad. If you use Shutterfly, MCR has an offer for a 20 page book for only five MCR points. You'll pay S&H, but it's one of the 20 page books, so if you're a Shutterfly user, it's a great opportunity.

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.

Lyft: MICHAEL918142 ($30)
Uber: michaelf1649 ($20)

Free Pampers Points: 10 points

The website is acting funky today.  Good luck.

Kellogg's Family Rewards: 125 points

Fortunately, it appears that KFR will continue to offer bonus codes. Good luck uploading all those receipts, though. And my supermarket doesn't offer a loyalty card. How is that supposed to work?

100 Points: FREEBONUSFROMKFR (They've never used this code before? Seriously?)

I just got new glasses which help me see quite nicely at a distance, but really mess things up when I've got a computer in front of my face. In honor of my new glasses, here are two of my favorite scenes from The Simpsons:

Disney Movie Rewards: Monthly points

Keep an eye on your email for the monthly bonus from DMR.  Note that there is also a link in there for 25 points by connecting your account to Facebook.

Kellogg's Family Rewards: 100 points

On the plus side, they haven't shot all the free codes at KFR.  Yet.

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.

Pampers Gifts to Grow: 20 points

Whew.  I was getting a little nervous.  Head over to Pampers and enter code CM6TY8FRM932015.

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!
