Deals, Steals, & Freebies OH MY!

UPDATE: I've updated this post with a couple more steals & deals...they just keep strolling into my inbox today!

To make up for my complete lack of freebies yesterday, I'm bringing a MEGA post of deals, steals, freebies...and then some!

Yummy Food stuffs
  • Free Starbucks at Barnes and Nobles! Print this coupon for a complimentary tall-size cappuccino, latte, espresso, freshly brewed coffee, or hot tea. We're got a Barnes and Nobles by Gymboree, so we're making a pit-stop this Saturday! Mommy only gets the double chocolate chip frappaccino from Starbucks, so daddy can get the free drink!
  • Get a $5 coupon to Chili's and a FREE dessert on your birthday and anniversary! Valid only for select SC or GA stores.
  • Free Zaxby's meal coupon (by mail)

Steals & Deals
  • Get a 6 piece cutley set, cutting board, AND dessert for $3.98 shipped to your doorstep! Sisterly Savings has all of the details on how to get a great stocking stuffer and some dessert for your trouble. Oh, and don't miss my FIRST GUEST POST!
  • Do you have a little girl in your family who's an American Girl fanatic? Emily Rose is the place to find a perfect gift for her! Order now, and get a FREE pair of shoes with any order over $30 with the code AFFERSHOES. I really wish my daughter was old enough for American Girl since we're so close to a store here, but maybe we'll be back in a couple of years when she's old enough to enjoy it.
  • Get a $5/$25 Walgreens coupon good for Friday and Saturday! I'll be sitting this one out, since there's really nothing to get excited about, and I'm not too happy about the $5/$25 instead of the $5/$20 we've been getting.
  • Check your email for a 10% coupon for ebay. They have an unique code that you can use until 10/31 via PayPal.
  • Borders is having a Friday and Saturday sale, both in store and online, for Borders Rewards Members. Get 40% off all CDs (SAP5360M) or 50% off 4 selected books (SAW5383B). I'm thinking about getting Member of the Family by Ceasar Millan. I wish I was rich enough to hire him to come take a look at Chip. Poor coyote-prey ball-obsessed daddy-loving dog. Dog is so psycho over my husband he tried to commit suicide via coyote while hubby was away. Anyway, you can also get A Bold, Fresh Piece of Humanity by Bill O'Reilly, Are you There Vodka? It's Me, Chelsea by Chelsea Handler, and Book of Lies by Brad Meltzer.
  • Sign up for a Shutterfly account through this link and get $10 credit in addition to 50 free 4x6 prints AND free standard shipping.
  • Check out Old Navy's online-only sale - select items are 60% off. $7 flat-rate shipping...I'll let you decide if it's worth it.
  • Get a $20 Petsmart Gift Card when you sign up for a Petsmart card. You'll get your giftcard after your first credit card use. I love how you can put personalize your card.
  • Use the coupon code ORDERSALE at to get 20% off purchase $25 - $49.99, 25% off orders $40 - $74.99, and 30% off orders of $75 or more. The offer expires 10/22. Shutterfly allows you to stack coupon codes, so it maybe worth your trouble to play around with their shopping cart.
  • Register as a Preferred Diner with Upromise and get a $3 bonus!
  • is having a 60% sale until 10/19. Use the coupon code MORE to get a $25 gift certificate for only $4!
  • Don't miss the Zout rebate! It's on B1G1 sale this week at Walgreens. Pair it with 2 $0.55/1 coupons and pay $2.89 for two but get $3.99 back by rebate!
  • Try some Progresso soup with their taste guarantee. There are always coupons and sales for Progresso soup, so keep your eye out. You've got a while though, considering this won't expire until March 31st!
  • Buy some Lysol, take your kid to the doctor's, and get $5 rebate. This is a maybe for me, since I've got some questions that I've sent off to Lysol and am currently awaiting an answer. We don't pay for our doctor's visits and thus won't get a bill or receipt. It also says two different products...does that mean 2 different types (sanitizing spray & cleaner) or just 2 different products (sanitizing spray in scent A & scent B)? I'll update as I get more information.
  • Hunt's Ketchup Great Taste Guarantee! Rebate up to $3.00 and valid through 11/30.
  • Be Sure of Yourself! Rebate up to $2.99 and valid through 12/31. Pair it with a $1/1 coupon to make it a moneymaker.
  • Kellogg's cereal rebate: Kellogg's Frosted Mini-Wheats Blueberry Muffin Cereal OR Kellogg's Smart Start Strawberry Oat Bites Cereal. It's valid through 7/31/09, so there's plenty of time to hunt for a $1/1 coupon. They come around easily - I have a $1/1 for both of these cereals - the blueberry muffin one expires 10/31, and the strawberry one expires 12/31. I think both were from All You, but am not 100% sure.
    • Did you know that you can check your Kellogg's rebate status? I still haven't received my $10 rebate, so I punched in my last name, street number, and zip code...and it looks like they received it on 9/26 and it's "in process". Not too excited about the fact that it says "If status is 'In Process' please allow 90 days for delivery". But at least I know they received it.
Whew! That's a LOT of stuff! I hope that you will be able to use something on the list - if you do, please let me know! I love hearing about how I'm helping you to save your Precious pennies. Briana also has a nice list of freebies, so hop on over for a peek. Please let me know if I missed anything!

Oh thank you, thank you! I had not checked Wal-Mart's sample page in a while and I have been considering trying the Garnier wrinkle filler. My sample is on the way!
