It’s April Fool’s Day! Did anyone get pranked? Not I, this whole week has been freebies galore, for me! Monday, Tuesday, Today, and Tomorrow. What does Friday bring, I wonder?
Monday morning at around 11am I was doing some monotonous envelope stuffing, and needing a little something to perk me up. My co–worker who collects the mail from the school board mail room came into my office and gave me a white and blue package I did indeed recognize. I received my P&G Brand Sampler (that I had posted about)! That same day, after work I headed to my boyfriends to make some supper, as I didn’t want it to go to waste sitting in the fridge all week. To my surprise, I received another sample box at his place (I totally cheated the system and entered in three different addresses so I could receive more freebies: Boyfriends, My place, and Work. Oops!). Photo to the left for extra emphasis. I’m so excited! Razors, shampoo, dental floss, face moisturizer, coupons and teeth whitening strips! Oh boy! On Monday, I also e-mailed Colgate-Palmolive company from their website and complimented their 360 toothbrush that boyfriend introduced to me a year or so ago. A woman quickly e-mailed me back thanking me for the letter, kindly noting that they will be giving me coupons in the mail! Nice!
Tuesday I received a card in the mail from my Mom’s Aunt. It was a sweet Easter card with a generous cheque written all out to me! I’ll be paying off my VISA with that (I bought a couple of $19 sports bras at MEC this weekend). Speaking of credit cards — My boyfriend and I signed up for the PC Financial MasterCard card (just to earn points for free groceries!) and have been using it for about a month and a half. I’ve yet to receive my “$20 worth of free groceries coupon” in the mail — boyfriend received his in the mail on Tuesday. Mine should be not too far behind!
Then today, I received an Easter package from my parents in the mail. Hey now … nobody is ever too old for a little treat, every now and then from their parents! Actually, it’s the first care package I’ve had in about a year or more. I requested one from my Mom, because I haven’t gotten any snail mail (okay besides the Easter Card, but I requested a pkg from my Mom weeks ago) in a while and wanted something special from my Momma (hehe!). I’ll never grow up. She always buys the good stuff, you know? The things where I hate spending money on — like Neutrogena hand cream. It’s such amazing hand lotion, but it’s like $8 a bottle, and I’d just buy the dollar store kind that works like crap (or the free Aerie lotion I received just last month, ha!). Just to save the money for something else, like TROPICANA orange juice! Can’t skimp out on the good o.j.
Tomorrow, I’ll be heading out to the mall to pick up my monthly freebie from Aerie. I can’t get over how great their marketing is, and how they’re promoting their new Aerie stores. On any given Thursday, they have a monthly freebie you can pick up. No purchase necessary, just walk in — present your Aerie card, they punch it and you walk out with your gift. March was a really ugly beach bag, and February was hand cream that I use at work (and smells just like the store does). They’ve been doing this for a good while now and you just need to have a stand alone Aerie store (not one that is inside an American Eagle store) and pick up a card. A few other freebies I received from Aerie are free undies (when they were actually out of the monthly giveaways – awesome!), candles, lip glosses, eye mask for sleeping and even a cute little blank note book.
So, I can’t leave all you guys empty handed by just telling you all about my freebies and goodies this week (Canadian only, unless otherwise noted). So I leave you with:
- Free bottle of Pledge Multi-Surface Cleaner!!! (A+ cleaner, in my books!)
- Free samples and coupons when you sign up with Alberta Style Canada
- Get ready & save the date. Brandsampler is giving away $90 worth of free coupons starting on Saturday, April 4th!
- I’ve yet to order from this new website. But you can check it out for yourselves. This website allows you to select coupons and they ship them to you for free (CAN & USA)
I used a lot of parentheses in this entry today (love it).
