Coupon Policies explained...

This is an incredibly helpful website explaining coupon policies... HUGE thank you to Jenny @ Southern Savers for this!!

Free Caribou Coffee!

If you know me, you probably know that my very favorite coffee in the world comes from the marvelous Caribou Coffee. If you're like me, then tomorrow is your lucky day! Caribou is giving away free 12-oz. cups of decaf from 12-closing tomorrow.

Starbucks is discontinuing their decaf coffee, so I guess this is Caribou's way of announcing that yes, they really ARE better than Starbucks. :) Enjoy!

Thanks to MommySnacks for this one!!

Go here to register and start earning SwagBucks:

Free Starbucks!

Starbucks is giving a free tall coffee to every person that pledges to volunteer 5 hours in their community. Go here to pledge your time. They have also put on this site ways to find oppourtunities to volunteer so if you are looking for a cause check it out.

This is a totally worthy cause- hopefully we're already volunteering at least 5 hours to help out someone in our community, and this is a nice little treat for that. :)

According to the site it says you only have to tell your Starbucks barista “I’m in” to get your free cup. I'm so good with that. Easy and free!

Free coffee starts tomorrow 1/21 through 1/25.
(-thanks Southern Savers!)

Free Cosmetics!!

UPDATE: This is totally legit! I got 2 free mascaras and a free Lancome sunscreen- all full-size- today at lunch!!

I'm going to the mall at lunch today to see if this is legit... I'll let everyone know how it goes!

Due to a Classaction lawsuit against some big retailers, anyone who bought cosmetics from one of these companies anytime between 1994 and 2003 can get one free product while supplies last. Here are the stores that are “participating” (makes it sound so willing):
Bergdorf Goodman
Boston Store
Carson Pirie Scott
Neiman Marcus
Saks Fifth Avenue
They will give one product per person. You do not have to have any proof that you purchased a product but you do have to sign a form stating that you are taking a product. They will give products away as supplies last or for 7 days. Go here for the official lingo and to see a list of the free products.

Y'all, I just have to share how excited I am!

As I'm sure you know, I'm a BeautiControl consultant. I joined a few years ago because I have sensitive skin and the skincare is AWESOME. I became a consultant to get a discount on the skincare. I never did anything with it, and I stopped selling and stopped using the skincare.

Recently, I decided that I REALLY missed BeautiControl, so I ended up becoming a consultant again. This time, though, I'm not just doing it for the discount. I'm in it for real! I have decided that I want to do really well and become a Director. The higher up you go, the better. BeautiControl gives you these awesome prizes- jewelry, trips, and when you become a Director, you get a red Ford Mustang- they pay for car, tax, tag, title... everything!!

I think the reason that I'm so excited is because these products really are awesome. They're different from anything else out there. Other brands (Avon, Mary Kay, etc.) are high-quality, too, but more like on a department store level. Every single product that BeautiControl offers is as good or better than what you'd buy in a dermotologist's office.

Anyways, I just wanted to share my resolution for 2009 - to become a Director with BeautiControl!!

I hope you'll all go check out my website:

Thanks!! :)
