Detroit Deal Diva

Archive for the ‘Freebies’ Category

I made my last shopping trip of the year on New Year’s Eve.  I had a number of coupons that were due to expire that day and I tried to use as many as possible w/o breaking my budget.

I did three transactions because I was using a lot of coupons. I have found that when I am using a lot of coupons there are less mistakes with my coupons and any mistakes that are made are easier to catch.   I had to make my bi-weekly baby purchases so that always drives up my bottomline. Otherwise, I think I got some pretty good deals.

These are the free items that I’ve received over the last week or so.  I love getting free stuff. It makes getting mail so much fun. You never know what might be in your mailbox from one day to the next.  I request so many freebies that I often forget where I requested them from and some seem to just show up in my mailbox from parts unknown. 🙂 I requested the Febreze w/Gain  when Gain was having their weekly giveaway  a few weeks ago.  Hopefully, some of you were able to request this freebie or one of the other free items Gain was giving away. I was also able to request a full-size bottle of  the new Gain Dishwashing  Liquid.  I am still waiting for it to arrive.  I also got a free travel size bottle of  Baby and Body Works “Twilight for Men” Body wash,  a $5.00 ECB card from CVS, a bag of  Cheetos Mighty Zingers,  six Nescafe stick coffee packets w/ a coupon,  Nexcare bandages w/ coupons, 2 Breath Right strips w/ coupon, a K IND bar, an Organize in Style coupon booklet,  a free Sobe coupon and my ink Reward from Staples.

I don’t know why CVS sent this to me, but I was certainly happy to get it. 🙂

I intend to post some of the freebies when they are still available so that everyone can request them while they are still available.  If you want to see some of my past freebies, I have several  “Weekly Freebie” videos on my You Tube Channel.
