Shh! This is a secret link just for my social media followers so don’t spread it around.
It’s that time of the year. You already know that I’m horrible at gift giving. I’m making an effort this year though. For the holidays, I’m giving two of you one free phone case from my other venture. You get to choose ONE case that will fit either the iPhone 4/4s, 5/5s, 5C, Samsung Galaxy S3 or S4. Click the image for more details and/or options. I’m trying to be fair and offering one design for men and one for women. Feel free to swap the case out for something else as long as it’s on the site and is not the fully customized option.
I’m only willing to mail this bad boy to the continental U.S. and can’t guarantee that you’ll actually get it in time for Christmas but I will try. Much as I love you, paying customers come first.
I will continue to offer super secret free stuff to my followers every month and they won’t be phone cases. E-mail subscribers might be offered something else.
Love you guys,
I don’t have an iPhone, and probably won’t have one because I’m an Android kind of girl, but, I can still appreciate a good offer.
I know that the iPhone has never been offered for free before, so, Apple must be getting desperate because the new iPhone 5C prices and promotions are such that Walmart is offering the new iPhone 5C at 20% below the suggested price and I’ve sniffed out how you can get a FREE, yes, FREE iPhone 5C.
If you’re willing to port over to Sprint and sign a new contract, you can get a free iPhone 5C.
Now, all of you iPhone fan boys or girls who don’t mind switching can save some serious money by switching. However, if you’re like my Twitter friend Melanie Nichols, you might be waiting on a line somewhere to shell out your money for the latest version. Whatever works for you! It’s always fun to watch.
It’s the fourth anniversary of the start of this blog. Every time I pass another year of blogging, I’m surprised that this blog has survived for another 12 months. Make no mistake, consistently writing articles well enough to keep readers somewhat engaged is not easy, especially if it’s not your full-time job. Thank you for sticking by me for four long years. We’re officially toddlers now. If you’re new here, get ready for the ride.
As I do every year, I like to reward my readers with an anniversary gift of sorts. This year is no different than any other. Since reading is fundamental I would like to encourage that habit by giving away a Kindle Fire. I’m giving away only one Kindle Fire to one lucky reader.
With all of the Christmas goodies (read: spiked punch) floating around, I forgot to post winners of my part of the 12 Days of Christmas Giveaway. You were entered into the giveaway if you are a Twitter follower, a have liked the Facebook page or if you subscribed via e-mail. So, here goes!
$25 Twitter Winner
$25 Facebook Winner
$25 E-mail Winner
If you won, please shoot me an e-mail at cheapskate@yes…. that includes your PayPal address and I’ll send your winnings right over to you. Congrats to the winners and be sure to come back next week when I announce an even bigger giveaway to celebrate my blog’s anniversary.
I might not be a fan of extreme couponing, but clipping coupons can be an effective way of lowering your overall grocery bill. I just don’t believe in spending hours each week clipping coupons for things that I might not use. Instead I go to coupons.com once each week and print the coupons that I need. Easy and simple.
Today, for their birthday, the folks from coupons.com are giving away a year’s membership to their savings club, a $30 value, for free! This will give you access to high value coupons not regularly offered on their site to the general public.
Just sign up using this link and enter the promo code BIRTHDAY when checking out.
Note: You will be asked for your credit card number since this is set to auto-renew, but they send you plenty of e-mails ahead of time so that you can cancel.
I have the distinct honor of sharing my birthday with Earth Day on April 22. For the past three years, I’ve celebrated by giving away cash and featuring articles with a “green” theme all Earth Week. I’m continuing the tradition this year as well by giving you a chance to win up t0 $105 without jumping through hoops.
It’s pretty simple! I’m randomly giving $50 to one confirmed e-mail subscriber to this blog, so sign up below!
It was three years ago on January 4 in a period of desperation that I registered for the domain and built the site that would become this blog. After coming up with the idea for this blog, I sat on it for a bit before actually writing anything. I didn’t know what I was doing and I started to question whether I wanted to share my financial crisis with the entire world.
I thought that maybe one or two people might stumble into my blog and possibly leave a message or two or word of encouragement. Never did I think that the blog would evolve to welcome tens of thousands of you every month, or that I would learn and share so much about money and finances. So, I am celebrating my third anniversary this month, and I’m doing it with you and some friends. In the true nature of giving, I and some blogging buddies have decided to reward YOU for following along, and we’re giving you a few chances to win some fabulous CASH and prizes.
This is the final day of December, and the final day of our giveaways and freebies. I’d like to wish everyone a safe and happy New Year. If you plan on drinking, AAA will drive you home for free, whether you are a member or not!
I saved the biggest giveaway for last. American Family is giving you a chance to win $50,000 in cash. Wouldn’t that be a great way to begin the year?
If that doesn’t interest you, how about a couple of freebies?
- Use this coupon for a 7 day pass at 24 hour fitness. Start the year the right way by going to the gym.
- Free 30 day trial of Dailies contact lenses
- If you have a Kindle, Amazon is giving you the chance to download 50 specific books. You can find the list here.
- Finally, get a free estate planning kit sent you by Texas A&M Foundation.
My goodness, we’re almost at the end of our Christmas celebration. Hasn’t this month just zoomed by to you? It certainly zoomed by to me. On to today’s freebie.
Since your smart phone is not essentially a mini computer, did you know that like all computers they can pick up nasty viruses? It makes sense, but I didn’t realize it either! Protect your phone with the Anti Virus Free app from AVG, the makers of some really cool regular antivirus software for your regular computer.
You can thank me later.
