Mailbox of Goodies...FOR YOU!!!

UPDATE:  The giveaway has been extended!!  It will now end on September 2nd at 6pm CST!



Above is my Mailbox of Goodies for the day, and as you can see I got myself a LOAD of coupons. They're my prizes from all of the giveaways that I have been wining! I am the type of person that never wins anything, so when I entered the gizillion giveaways around the blogosphere, I never to win anything at all. And instead I find my mailbox overfilled with coupons!

But quickly now, let me share with you the one freebie that I received by UPS. Yes, my Neocate Sample came by UPS. It took less than week for me to receive mine, so you should go and request yours today to put more goodies in your mailbox!

And you know what else you can do to beef up your own Mailbox of Goodies? You can get $100 in coupons and a personalized surprise! I have been so blessed with such a wonderful Mailbox this week that I want to spread the love. Yup, it's time for My Precious Pennies' FIRST GIVEAWAY!!!

I have been cleaning out my coupon album, and I have decided to pass on some coupons that we will never use. They're not junk mind you, it's just now that we menu plan, we very rarely buy food items that have matching coupons. And I refuse to spend money on "snack" foods that aren't fruit, so we end up not using a LOT of food coupons. Not to mention there are tons of coupons that we just don't have a need for, like pull-ups. This is a truly mixed batch, because I just pulled out my trusty calculator and kept adding until I reached $100 of coupons. And I might even throw in a little non-coupon related surprise in there too.

So how do you win this awesome prize? You can get four possible entries, and please leave a SEPARATE comment for each entry:
  1. Leave a comment with a description of your best Mailbox of Goodies.
  2. Post about this giveaway on your blog and leave the permalink.
  3. Subscribe to My Precious Pennies, or let me know if you've already subscribed. Make sure you leave the email address that you subscribed under.
  4. Take my button here and post it on your blog.
My Precious Pennies
You have until Sunday 08/31/08 10am CST Tuesday 09/02/08 6pm CST to enter. I will announce a winner later that day here. I'm not going to be messing with emails or trying to track you down...the winner is responsible for checking back here and contacting me within 48 hours, or I will rinse and repeat the process and draw a new winner.

Good luck to all!!!

I never win anything either, but just won 50 free cards from Baby Cheapskate. They should arrive any day now and I am so excited.

The next best thing is all the formula samples and $5 checks/coupons. They really help with a new little one.

The best mailbox goodies I have received would have to be a full size package of diapers! They were parent's choice and came in about a year ago. ambernicole49@yahoo.com

My best mailbox of goodies was from houseparty.com - I was selected to host a party and they sent me everything - from paper plates and napkins to party favors for the guests to take home :)

Your lot of coupons sounds awesome! We would love to win. Thank you for a chance!

Erica said...

Oh, enter me please! I've just started coupon clipping and am always excited to find more to add to my collection!!

Anderson said...

My best mailbox of goodies was the free Playtex drop-ins bottle I received. It turned out that my new baby didn't want any of the bottles we had for our first, he only took to the Playtex one. It was a LIFESAVER!!!!
We would love to win and put those coupons to good use!

Jennifer said...

I've just started getting goodies in my mailbox. I'm getting mostly feminine care products with an occasional snack mixed in there. My husband just smiles when he brings the mail in. But it doesn't fool me... He's enjoying the freebies as much as I am!

Thanks for the great giveaway. I did a $100 coupon giveaway last week. I think it's a great way to share the coupons you know you won't use. I also pass along any strays that we won't use to the military coupon sites.

Stephanie said...

The only goodies I ever get in the mail are free samples, so this would be fun.
