Bargains & Freebies On Magazines, Dining Out, Greeting Cards & More…
I’ve been sneakily stocking up on freebie offers all Fall, so I’d be ready for all the Christmas stocking/last minute giftie/family in need projects that swarm my extended family this time of year. Take a look at some of the ideas below and see what works for you. Sneaky inside tip: most of these items will ship to you well before Christmas, or you can download them immediately. Have fun!
Greeting Cards & Personalized Gifts:
York Photo is offering some excellent ideas:
- 60 free photos
- a free photo calendar (use code GIVCAL when ordering)
- Join Mixbook for photo storage and printing free, and then get 10 free personalized greeting cards. (Use code 10FREECARDS at checkout.)

- I just ordered this for my Zoe–it’s the “Elmo Adventure Learning Kit” 3 storybooks, a word card box and a free Elmo backpack–pay $3.99 for shipping–but it’s a $44.00 value, so I’m happy.
Need Some Cash Quick For Last Minute Items?
- “I Do, Now I Don’t” buys your old jewelry and pays very quickly–usually in less than 24 hours.
- USell will pay you up to $350.00 for your old phone with immediate payment.
Free Sample Size Items…healthcare, toiletries, laundry, household, diapers and more:
I love these options because they send free toiletries and different samples every month–and often include free coupons for the full-sized version. Since we do a lot of stockings and backpacks for the Road Home, our local women and children’s shelter, things like laundry soap, deoderant and such are much appreciated.
Secret Clinical Strength has an offer right now for a free stick of Secret Clinical Strength, a coupon for a free stick, another $16.00 in Proctor & Gamble coupons, all for a shipping fee of $4.99.
Pick up a free month’s supply of contact lens.
And if you know someone who’s expecting, sign them up for Similac Strong Moms–I got over $300.00 in coupons for Zoe for formula, diapers and other baby care items.
Hope some of these resources help you stretch your budget this year–there’s still so many going without that I’m alwaus focused on how much more I can send out. Good luck, my clever Couponistas!
