My Daily Freebies: Friday 8/28/15

Here is what I got/found for free today!

  • A free 1-year subscription to Better Homes & Gardens OR a $6 refund check!  I found this card inside the packaging of the "Better Homes & Gardens" cubby organizer that I ordered from  I picked the $6 refund check.

  • The latest issue of Entertainment Weekly magazine (free subscription via Recycle Bank).

  • My daughter ate dinner for free at her job :)

Did you get any freebies today?


  1. I love that you read the fine print and are getting the 6 bucks back! I am sure the magazine banks on people NOT reading it and just opting for the magazine or throwing the card away without looking at all!
    I can't remember if I mentioned this to you or not, but thanks to YOU, I now look at the bottom of all my receipts to see if there are any freebies/surveys to take! I have taken three surveys so far and put into drawings for various amounts of giftcards/cash. It only takes me a few extra minutes so I figured you never know.... =)

    1. LOL, I hope you win something, Traceybee! When I have time (or if I have relevant feedback that I want to pass along), I do the surveys that just enter you in drawings but so far I haven't won anything :( A couple of times, though, I was told at Lowe's to make sure I took the survey because a customer of that particular store had won the $5K prize. I guess the employees were as surprised as I would be to hear that it wasn't a scam and that the money was actually awarded, lol. But you definitely won't win if you don't enter so good luck to you!

    2. You should check out the Special Offer they have for buying Hefty trash bags at Walmart right now! Buy 1 box of Hefty Trash Bag at Walmart (either in store or order online but pick store pick-up for the shipping) and then take a picture of it, and email them the picture and your receipt and you get 400 SB! If you get 2 or more boxes, then you get a $10 Walmart gift card! I don't know how much they are at Walmart, but there was $1.50/1 coupons that you can print from the Coupons area on Swagbucks. Then you also get 10 SB for each coupon that you redeem, and I'm thinking that the bags will be free or close to free after the gift card... check it out!

    3. Thanks for the tip on the trash bags!!! And , I really should start using the coupon area on Swagbucks too! I really could use some Amazon gift cards for Christmastime!!! LOL

    4. Since you're working on a new routine for next week, make sure you include joining the SB Team Challenge that starts at noon on Monday and work on it all week. Sure the prizes are paltry BUT they usually make it easier to earn SB during those weeks and that's when I really tend of pile them on! Bookmark the homepage of the challenge on Monday once it's open (right after you're assigned to a team) and keep on checking all the comments. Usually there are super users who post very useful tips on what to do to accumulate as many points as possible (which ads to click, etc.). Yes, it will keep you busy that week but if your goal is to earn gift cards for Christmas, it's going to be super useful. If you have a smart phone, download the following apps: Swagbucks (to input mobile Swagcodes when they're available, Swagbucks TV,,, Sportly and log in each of those apps with your SB log in. During the team challenge you can run those apps one after the other all day while you're on Wifi (mute the sound) and earn at least 30 SB per app per day. The beauty of them is that you don't (or very rarely) need to click on anything, the videos just advance by themselves. You'll need to read that specific team challenge's rules to see if they'll be awarding team points for those though. You need to earn at least 200 points for your team to be eligible for the bonus. Anyhoo, if you have any questions next week, just comment on one of my blog posts and i'll help you :)
