    The website lets you print a Bricks coupon $1 off 2lbs of cheese (print twice) after you enter the sweepstakes!

  • Christina

    I love all the freebies, thank you for posting :0)

  • Susan

    I love the Friday freebie posts too Becky.

    Any tips for keeping track of sweepstakes that you can enter more than once? I tend to enter a sweepstakes when I’m interested in the prize, but then forget to go back the next day and enter again. Or get mad because I can’t find the link to enter again.

    Unrelated, but I thought I’d mention that I got 38 swagbucks for a search just now. All this time I’ve been thinking that “Mega Swagbucks” Fridays was nothing but hype because I’ve never gotten any more SB’s on a Friday than I do any other day. But maybe there is something to it after all. Needless to say, I was delighted. I also got 50 SB’s the other day for my birthday.

    Now, if that 160 for the Old Navy groupon would just post! Has yours come across yet? I haven’t received the groupon either, so I should just quit chomping at the bit, I guess. 🙂

    • Becky

      YAY!!! Congrats for the great win on SB!!! The most I’ve ever gotten is 24! I didn’t know you got SB for your birthday! That’s AWESOME! I just cashed in for my 11th Amazon gift card!! And I’ve only been doing it since January!!

      So, for the Old Navy Groupon… if it didn’t post (but has cleared to your Groupon account) go back to the Trial Pay portion of Swagbucks, and in the same line as where it says Most popular, local, etc… on the right hand side is the word support. Click on that, and it’ll walk you though filing a claim for your SB… I’ve had to file 3 or 4, but they are always REALLY fast at getting me the SB after I proved I did whatever (so for Groupon, you’ll just have to submit a copy of your receipt, which should be in your email).

      Now, as for how do I remember to enter the sweepstakes every day? I don’t 🙁 which sucks, because you can’t win if you don’t enter (and I’ve had a VERY lucky month!)
      But, some Ideas I’ve been thinking about are bookmarking the sites in a sweepstakes folder, than setting an alarm on my cell phone, or setting them all up as my homepage so when i open a new browser they pop up… but honestly? I add things to the post every day of the week, (so I’m in there, looking at it and editing it) and I still don’t remember to do them 🙂

      • Susan

        Becky, yep, free birthday swagbucks. I was quite surprised.

        I got some other coupons in my email that came with a birthday greeting. My favorites were $1.50/1 John Freida, which I was able to print 4 of — sweet!) and $10 off any purchase of $10 or more from World Market. There were some others too. Quite fun to find them in my inbox.

        That would be a great post sometime — a list of all the sites that send birthday coupons.

    What if you only have one phone number and that is your personal phone? Suggestions?

    • Becky

      I give them either 208-555-6993 or 208-555-5555, depending on my mood 🙂

    • Paige

      Sign up for an internet phone number at It’s free and if someone calls you, they get to leave a message that then gets sent to your email address. I use it for sweeps/freebies, all sorts of stuff.
