Friday Freebies AND Giveaway!

Posted August 5, 2011

Freebies and giveaways and coupons, oh my! Come and get your freebies and samples AND enter to win our newest giveaway!

It’s the first Friday of the month, which means it is time for a Giveaway! This month, I am giving away 2 Groupons for a family four pack of black-light illuminated indoor mini-golf at Lunar Mini Golf! The 18-hole course is located at Triangle Town Center (5959 Triangle Town Blvd., Raleigh, North Carolina 27616). Click HERE for their website.

Each Groupon is good for a family pack, which includes up to three rounds of mini golf and glow-in-the-dark necklaces for four (up to a $32 value). Seriously, who can pass up free glow-in-the-dark jewelry?

Because the Groupons expire August 15, this is going to be a very fast giveaway. I will randomly select the winners using random.org on Saturday, August 6 at 6 PM and post the winning names soon after. Make sure you can head to the “course” by August 15 before you enter this giveaway.

To enter, simply post below if you are hitting the stores this tax-free weekend and what you plan to buy. Good luck!

Now…… on to the FREEBIES!

Free Purina Beneful WagPack including a sample and a copy of Wag World Magazine. Thanks to heyitsfree.net for this one. Click HERE for the sample.

Free sample Post-It Durable Tabs and Storage Container Labels. There are also a bunch of Post-It coupons available on the website. Thanks to couponing101.com for this one. Click HERE for the sample.

$35 in Proctor & Gamble coupons from the new Home Made Simple coupon book, Gather Together! If you are new to Home Made Simple (part of P&G), you will need to fill out the form first. If you are already registered, just log in. Then they will send you the coupon booklet in the mail!
Click HERE for the sample.

Free Activia Selects coupon. You fill out the form and then they send you an e-mail with a link to print the free product coupon. As we all know, most stores in this area won’t take free product printable coupons so you may have trouble redeeming it. In the past, I have had pretty good luck using coupons like this at CVS and Walmart. Most grocery stores will not take them. If your store takes it – please let us know which one it was. Click HERE for the coupon.

Dove Chocolate “Get Pampered at the Pro Bowl” instant win game with prizes including a trip to Hawaii. Other prizes include spa gift certificates and Dove chocolate, of course. To enter, you need a qualifying UPS but you do get 1 entry without a UPC. Click HERE for the game.

Home Depot free kids workshop on Saturday August 6 between 9 am and 12 noon. They will be building a cute little pencil box. Click HERE for the details.

Lowes Build & Grow kids’ workshop will be building a Schoolhouse Photo Holder on Saturday, August 13 at 10:00 AM. These workshops are free and they get to keep the craft as well as a number of other cute freebies. Click HERE for the details.

    If I do any shopping it will be for a new laptop! Mine is starting to suffer from all the coupon printing and deal hunting that I have been doing lately!

    I am looking to use gift cards I have for Old Navy and Macy's. I hope to stretch them a bit farther during the tax-free weekend.

    Im not planning on taking advantage of the tax free weekend. We already have the things we need for back-to-school, so we will be enjoying this weekend together at home. Hopefully next weekend we will be celebrating my sons birthday over some mini golf!

    I will not be buying a lot of school supplies this weekend. My daughter has most of everything that she needs already.

  • verncamp Aug 5, 2011

    I did have to purchase something but the clerk said it didn't qualify for the tax free weekend thingy...oh well...atleast she was kind enough to check for me. :) I would really, REALLY love to win this for our family. I am not working right now so money is not available for family outings such as this....It sounds like a really fun time! Thanks for having such a fun drawing and all the other hard work you do for us on here! :)
