Awesome Ponds deal at Target

Right now Target has a printable up for $1.50 off any Ponds Cleansing Cloth item, which is awesome just by itself.

But when I went to Target today I noticed that some of the 30-count cleansing cloths had $1.50 off peelies that you can combine with the Target coupons for $3 off each package. In my area they sell for $4.69, take $3 off with coupons and thats $1.69 for 30-count cloths. I got all four of those for about $6.75-ish, or I got four for the price of one and a half packages! :)

Head on over to Target to see if you can find these in the beauty section of the store. I did also see some of these packs with the peelie coupon attached in the back section where they keep all the seasonal items, value item (like the double boxes of cereal or the 2-packs of listerine), things like that. So keep your eye out and look around when you go to Target again!

Pinecone Research looking for Participants

Want to join a new Survey Panel?

Pinecone Research is one of the most well-respected survey companies out there, and one of the hardest to join. I have been a member for about 2 years now and have nothing but good things to say about it.

Every survey you complete you get $3 (no matter what the subject, or how long it takes) either mailed to you by check or deposited directly into your PayPal account. I opt for the PayPal and let it accumulate and usually put it towards something I've had my eye on. Also when opting for the PayPal delivery, you usually receive your reward within about 48-72 hours.

Although there is one survey you don't get paid for, and those usually are numbered 3001 in emails, those are pre-screeners and profile updaters to keep your information up-to-date so they can send you the most relevant surveys. They usually only take about 5 minutes and will ask you questions about many topics.

Pinecone is also a great company for product trials. I've gotten many over the couple years I've been with them. It's always full size products such as shampoo, conditioner, salad dressings, cleaners, etc.

I have referred several friends over the years and they are all quite happy in their dealings with Pinecone and you will be too.

If you are interested in joining, click here. Do it quickly, usually their available spots are filled pretty fast!

Walgreens Coupon Policy

Walgreens has something they have never had before....a company-wide coupon policy. Before guidelines were generalized throughout the company, but stores were free to interpret them however they wanted, which could sometimes leave the consumer with the short end of the stick.

That is not the case anymore. You can go here to view/print the new company-wide policy that is to be followed at ALL Walgreens locations.


Click here to get a Buy one enttree, and get the second for 50% off at TGI Fridays.

Expires 9/1.

It does say on the coupon that it is reuseable. While I'm not sure too many people would go to Friday's more than once in the course of a week, I'm guessing you can print the coupon more than once.

Click here to print out two new Baja Fresh Coupons! One for $2 off a purchase of $7 or more and $5 off a purchase of $15 or more.

Widespread Target Clearance

If you haven't been to your local Target lately, it probably wouldn't hurt to stop in. It seems most Targets are getting ready to/have begun/or will be beginning remodels to expand their food sections to include some fresh produce, baked goods, and an expanded refrigerator and freezer sections.

Because of the remodels, Target's clearance selections are more abundant than usual (probably so they don't have to move it all around the store) and you might be able to score yourself an awesome deal or two.

Everything you see in the picture was on clearance and after coupons it came to about $6.00 for eyeshadow, room freshener, a pair of flip-flops and an area rug. Regularly priced, all of that would have been close to $50, so I'd say a pretty good deal indeed.

They had tons more stuff, but I held some self-control and didn't scoop up everything I saw. So stop by your Target and see if there is a "Fresh Groceries coming soon" sign because if there is, more than likely, you'll find some good clearance deals inside!!

Get 30% off and Give Back.

During August 26-29 if you shop at Old Navy, Gap, Banana Republic, Gap Outlet or Banana Republic Factory Store and use this coupon, you'll get 30% off your entire purchase. Also, by using the coupon, 5% of your total purchase price will be donated to the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. How is that for a sweet deal?

Coupon is for in-store use only.

Hopefully everything will be easier to find for everyone now that every entry is labeled. :)

BzzAgent part 2

Last week I posted about BzzAgent and their word-of-mouth techniques. I also showed you a pack they are likely to send you during a campaign.

I decided to show you an example of one of their smaller packs they sometime send for campaigns. Even their smaller packs are amazing. This is their current Garnier Fructis Sleek and Shine Blow Dry Perfector campaign. The claim is that it's a 2 step system that you use once every 7 shampoos and your hair will stay frizz-free for those 7 shampoos without any extra hair care products.

Along with the actual system itself, I also got a $2 off coupon in the pack along with the BzzGuide and note from Jono the Bzzhead (both of those are standard in any Bzzkit).

So for those that were still a little apprehensive about the program, it's a really nice company to be apart of. No matter what the campaign they take care of you and in return you just have to spread the word about the campaigns you are involved in and complete reports about the instances where you talked about the product.

In case you missed it before, you can sign up to join BzzAgent here.

*Please note, I am not being compensated for my views on BzzAgent. Any opinions are purely my own.

$5 off Automatic Shower Cleaner

Have I mentioned how much I love my Automatic Shower Cleaner? I admit I'm not big on bathroom cleaning so anything that makes it easier is a must for me. I've had mine for almost two years and it's great. It cleans the shower beautifully. The only part that it neglects a little is at the bottom of the shower where the wall and the floor meet which is where, I assume, all of the "stuff" collects after it's washed down the walls. But I would rather clean up one area of the shower than all of it all the time.

You can click here and print a $5 off coupon for the starter kit. The kit usually runs around $12, so this would bring the price down to about $7 and if you can find a sale it would be even less. The starter kit comes with the actual cleaning device, one refill and batteries. Each refill lasts about 30 showers/uses and coupons are regularly in the Sunday paper and online for refills (which usually run about $4 each).

Free Fruitista Freeze from Taco Bell has a rare Taco Bell coupon where you can get a free Frutista Freeze with ANY purchase. Yes, you can even buy one 79cent burrito/taco/etc and get a free freeze with it. You should be able to print this coupon twice and I found it under the local coupons tab on the site.

BzzAgent is a word of mouth organization that will send you coupons/samples of new products so that you can spread the word to your friends/family/associates/etc.

I have been a member of BzzAgent for a few years now and have found them to be very easy to deal wiith. They aren't a survey site, they send you invitations to join campaigns as they fit your profile and as they become available. The above picture is a campaign packet that I received from them today about Orbit's new packaging. In the packet, I received the 5 packs of Orbit hum in all different flavors, a BzzGuide and Buy One Get One Free Coupons. This is the standard for BzzAgent.

Currently, I am enrolled in three BzzCampaigns. When you start out you might only get a couple of invitations every few months until your Rank improves. The higher rank you get the more campaigns you get and the earlier you find out about the campaigns (I'm a Busy Bee which is about rank 4). You gain rank by completing Bzzreports stating how you spread the word about the product as well as doing periodic profile surveys.

Signing up for Email Alerts

Doesn't giving out your email address just beg for a lot of spam?

Simply put: Not really.

Think about the stores that you shop at a lot. Are you at Kohl's once a week? Do the people at Macy's know you by name (well they know me by name, but thats because one of my friends works there and everybody knows him)? Wouldn't it be nice to be in the know about deals/special sales at your favorite store? I think so.

Most stores these days have a website where you can register your email address with them. Through this you can receive periodic emails about special sales or even coupons/promotion codes that can be used on your next order. Also, a lot of stores will have special promotions for your birthday that you can use the day of your birthday or throughout the month. This morning alone, I received 4 emails for my birthday (which is next Sunday, AHEM!!). In those emails, I have a free shake from Arby's, a special birthday "surprise" from Sephora, $10 off any $25 purchase at, a free Dessert from TGI Fridays, and a free Burger from Red Robin - and my birthday is still a week away.

Read the fine print in the terms and conditions. Usually this is where they specify that they will not sell your email address to any other companies that could fill your inbox with spam.

If you are still concerned, do what I've mentioned before and set up a free email address through yahoo, gmail, hotmail, etc that is specifically for your retail subscriptions (I prefer gmail because they have an awesome spam filter), survey sites, etc. This way when you are sifting through your email you won't get it mixed up with personal emails and delete something that you shouldn't have.

And remember, you can opt-out of emails at any time if you decide you no longer really shop at a certain store or just don't want to receive emails. At the bottom of emails you will see an "unsubscribe" link. Just click that, and click the confirm button and you will no longer receive emails from that particular company.
