What do you think of the new format?

Easier to read?

Harder to read?

You changed the format?

Do you like the Mail Call?

Do you like the Freebie Friday post?

I want to hear from you!!  What would you change?  Keep the same?  Is there something you aren’t seeing that you wish you were?  Something that you are that you wish you weren’t?


  • Susan

    I received some of the same items you did. Image that! 🙂

    I got a free sample of the Powerbar energy gel thingies, and we thought they were horrid. Bleck! My daughter wouldn’t even eat one — she tried it, chewed it for about two seconds, and spit it out.

    Needless to say, it’s great to have a free sample to try products out to see if you like them.

  • I got a free 5pack of Zyrtec at Walgreens this week from a coupon-by-mail. Signed up for several of the sweepstakes you mentioned. The ones I avoid right now are most of the ones that require you to ‘like’ a Facebook page. That is more of a personal space for me although I’ve considered setting up an account just for ads/discounts.

    • LauraVO

      You can always unlike the page after you get the coupon/freebie. It’s on the left side of the page, if you scroll down a ways.

    • Becky

      I’d been thinking about putting a different category for “Facebook” likes… would that be helpful?
      Or just indicating it in some way?

  • Jessica FabFruGal

    Great list Becky! I heart samples and you’ve got them all in one place. Awesome. Thanks!

  • Sheri

    A lot of the links I clicked on for the freebies either said nothing found or took me to something completely different. Hope you can get them fixed, I’d like some of them. I know one was the Carefree liners.

  • myssssss

    I wen to a great clips today they had given out 300 of their schick razors so gave me $4.00 coupons off of schick razor or refills, the lady was very nice and embarrassed they had given out all of them in one morning..goodness sakes, my hubby got his hair cut at one and did get one even offered, I don’t think they even knew of the promotion..hmmm..but got 8 coupons and Target up the street has them for closeouts about $3.97 every once and a while which makes them free except for sales tax…

  • Judie M.

    Thank you for doing this – there is a lot of information here and I appreciate that it’s all in one place.

  • Jen

    I LOVE the Friday Freebie post! I seriously look forward to this one all week, and wake up excited on Friday. My husband thinks I might have a problem… 🙂
