Technically, I only received 3 freebies today, but one of them was huge. Before I get to that, let me give the details on my Macy's giveaway. I am no longer a Macy's card holder, but I still receive Macy coupons. Today I got two 20% off any single day of shopping and two $15/$40 coupons. Both are for use with a Macy's Star Rewards Card, and are good through November 30th. As far as I can tell, they are not tied to my non-existent card, so anyone with a Macy's Star Rewards card can use them.
To enter, just leave a comment on this post with your favorite Mailbox of Goodies that you've received so far. If you're a subscriber, you can also get an extra entry by emailing me the secret subscriber code at the bottom of each post. This giveaway will end sometime on Monday 10/20. Please do not enter if you do not have a Macy's card or do not plan to get one - if you do want to get one though, these coupons are valid WITH the new Macy's account discounts. And since they're valid through November 30th...you might want to save one for Black Friday shopping!
Okay, onwards to my Mailbox of Goodies. I received another issue of my free "Parenting" magazine. I really need to start cutting down on these free subscriptions - I barely have enough time to read them all. I also got my Walmart Jergens sample, and it also came with a trusty $1/1 coupon. My next freebie came courtesy of the US Government, which was piles and piles of informational booklets. I haven't had a chance to read them all in detail yet, but they all look like they are just stuffed with information.
I went through this list of free publications and ordered the ones that are of interest to us. Here's what I got:
- Identity Theft and your SS #
- Introduction to Mutual Funds
- Taking Mystery out of Retirement
- Facts on Savings & Investing
- Savings Fitness
- 10 Ways to Prepare for Retirement
- Questions about Investments
- 51 Ways to Save Hundreds
- Internet Fraud
- ID Theft: What it's all about
- Money tips for all ages
