Free Make-up, Grocery, Household Coupons and Mail-In Rebates

This week I shopped at Walgreens for a few items. Before leaving the house I checked my coupons. I found two vitamin coupons and two for makeup, all of which I was planning to purchase. The coupons I had were ones that I print off the computer. These coupons were worth money off products at any retailer and points when redeemed. The vitamin coupons were each worth $2 off and the makeup coupons were each worth $1 off. I also made money the minute the cashier scanned the coupons.

You see, each coupon I redeem is worth 10 points. The 40 points I earned on this shopping trip will be combined with other points I currently have. When I choose, I can redeem them for a variety of gift cards or donations to charity, my choice. Not long ago I redeemed points for free movie tickets to my local theater. You too can earn points for printing and redeeming coupons. Click here?.for more information about this free service.

In addition to redeeming coupons and earning points, I also make money back another way. I select coupons each month online. I generally choose all available since there are times I buy items that are not on my regular list. When I purchase any I selected online, the coupon value is added in my online account. I also get the coupon discount at the cash register too and earn 10 points for each one used. I can cash out the money in the form of a check, use it to pay down any student loans, transfer it to a 529 account, or add it to a high yield account where money is price matched. All of these programs work together to maximize benefits. To learn more about what I am doing and to start doing it too, get started here.

Besides sharing my coupon secrets, I decided to also share this tidbit of information. Many companies offer consumers free products to try. Finding out which items are available for try me can be difficult. Click here for a bunch of freebies from makeup to cleaning products. I have also included a few rebates on pet food and detergent.

Pharmacy And Cheap Prescription Drug Prices, Some Free

Are you struggling to pay for your prescriptions?

Looking for Pharmacy and cheap prescription drug prices?  

How about free prescriptions? keep reading.

Freebies are real and companies are giving them away every chance they get, but finding them can be difficult, until now. I search out all freebies and have gotten a bunch of stuff over the years. Medication is just one of the ways I make money while saving money.

Recently my daughter was sick with a double ear infection. I had already taken her to the pediatrician and paid $20 a visit. Twice they found nothing wrong with her. When she complained about her ears and of not feeling well, I took her to a clinic. There, they discovered she had a double ear infection and wanted to give her antibiotics. I already figured she would need medicine and gave the clinic the  pharmacy number for Publix, that I know gives free antibiotics. The doctor said they weren’t sure if the pharmacy gave the free antibiotics to children or only adults.  I just told them to make sure she was given the free prescription amount so we didn’t have to pay.

When we picked up the prescription, it was free, just like I knew it would be. Why should I pay and visit my regular pharmacy if I can get it free. Pharmacy and cheap prescription drug prices should be given to patients by their doctors. This saved me $20 for the appointment and $20 for the antibiotics.

Many people are suffering and not taking medications they need because they are not aware of pharmacies that offer freebies. Doctors should familiarize themselves with these pharmacies to help their patients out, but many don’t.

Publix is in my area and they not only offer free antibiotics but they also offer free high blood pressure medicine. Here is what I found at Publix?.

Lisinopril: Free 30-day supply of ACE inhibitor lisinopril, used to treat high blood pressure, diabetes and some heart conditions and chronic kidney conditions. Get up to 60 tablets per month.

Antibiotics: Free 14-day supply of Amoxicillin, Ampicillin, Cephalexin (capsules or suspension), Sulfamethoxazole/Trimethoprim (SMZ-TMP), Ciprofloxacin (excluding Ciprofloxacin XR), Penicillin VK and Doxycycline Hyclate (capsules).

Metformin: Free 30-day supply of 500 mg, 850 mg or 1000 mg immediate-release tablets. Get up to 90 per month.

Here are pharmacies that offer free medications. Many more offer discount medications starting at just $4 for a 30-day prescription.

Unclaimed Cash In Your Name


Is there Unclaimed Cash in your name?

Many years ago I discovered money owed me sitting in a holding account. I never did figure out how it got there since I had lived at the same address forever. Apparently when companies owe consumers money they often don’t take the time to connect with the customer for reimbursement and the money ends up in an unclaimed money fund.

Unclaimed cash and property can consist of dividends, insurance refunds, bank account balances, un-cashed checks, securities, utility refunds, royalties, child support payments, etc. This can also happen when an estate is settled and contact can not be made with the heirs. The money sits in holding which can include state/local governments, banks, businesses, retailers, hospitals, etc. The money must be turned over to the state in which the owners’ last address resides in. If you have lived in multiple states, money may be sitting around waiting to be claimed in all of them. The funds are held until the owner can be found.

It is time consuming to search each state for their unclaimed cash and property fund department. Once found, names are submitted and a search is performed. Sometimes money is under just the first initial and the last name. Sometimes money is under the maiden name. It can be difficult to search and locate all the money owed to you.

There are advantages to using a service. Since not all unclaimed assets are in state and federal databases yet, even though they will eventually end up there, there may be a delay in locating the money. Most unclaimed funds departments have scheduled update times allowing the search you perform to be outdated. However; services that search for you are able to search the database and locate money quicker and faster.

To see if there is anything out there for you to claim start with a free trial. This allows you to see the dollar amount in unclaimed funds reported. This is not a guarantee that the money is yours since there are others with the same information as you. It simply means that funds are unclaimed matching the description you provided. Once money or property is found that belongs to you simply subscribe to the premium plan and you will be guided through the claim process step by step. You can even speak with an asset recovery specialist. They are available to help with any confusing or complicated parts.

Not only will you find unclaimed funds for yourself, but you can find anything owed your family and even your friends. The database used contains information from all 50 states and several Federal agencies that could belong to you. This is tedious work so let someone with experience do it for you.

Welcome To My Home, I Am So Glad You Stopped By

Hi, my name is Vicki

Here are a few things about me;

Yes, my name is really Vicki. Many people think it is short for Victoria but it isn’t. My mom wanted to name me after my grandmother whose middle name was Victoria, but thought everyone would shorten it to Vicki therefore; she just named me Vicki to avoid all of that. Funny thing is, people call me Victoria. I just answer to it because it is easier than telling them it isn’t my name.

I am a native Floridian. Yep, I was born in West Palm Beach and still reside locally. Do you know where we vacation? Get this. We travel north where the snow is to vacation. That is really funny when you think about it. People from up north travel to the sunshine and I travel to the snow. For the past three or so years we have visited New Hampshire to ski. I am not an avid skier and it takes me a long time to make it down the mountain. I see my son pass by twice before I get to the bottom.

Another interesting fact about me is I love saving and making money. Saving money is really making money because if I don’t spend then I am accumulating it. I am a member of several reward programs that pay me to buy stuff. That is a crazy thought isn’t it. Here is a true story about how I saved hundreds of dollars when buying a swingset. First of all, have you noticed that swingsets are not cheap. When I was a kid we had the metal ones. Do you remember those? It would be boiling hot and you wanted to play outside. Steam was waving off the slide but it was so inviting. I remember leaning back to make sure I would not have my leg touch the slide as I slid down. I didn’t want to get burned but the thought  of how fun the slide was outweighed the possibility of me getting burned. I never though to get a towel and use it to slide on.

Well, metal swingsets are a thing of the past. Now they are made of hard plastic or wood. I found a plastic one with powered coated metal legs to keep it from rusting. I finally narrowed the search down to one swingset I wanted to buy. It was over $1500.00. Yes, you read that correct. How did a swingset soar to such a high price? This is nothing special either. It had a slide that was attached to a platform for the kids to stand on. I guess it resembles a treestand. There were also one swing and a tire swing on it. That is it. Just a basic swing set.

I searched the internet for the swing set I wanted and found a few stores carried it. Guess where I found it? Overstock. I found it there by accident. I didn’t even know that overstock sold swing sets. Overstock was listed on a reward site I use and they offered me, I believe, 5% back for buying it. Not too bad since I planned on getting it anyway. I also had a credit card that offered 5% if I shopped at a store listed on the reward page. Well, this is looking even better now. This was almost too good to be true. Almost. Oh my gosh, I almost forgot the best part to tell you. Overstock was giving me the swing set with free shipping. Yes, this was the only store offering it for free shipping. This was a $149 savings. This swing set that started at $1500 was starting to look very good to me.  The final savings I got was Overstock has a club, for $19.99 a year I could get 10% off all purchases. The savings on this swing set was worth more than the $19.99 the club cost me so I joined. I saved several hundred dollars buying this swing set for the kids. They still use it today and we have had it for a few years now. I could tell you more ways I save but this was a very big savings and I really wanted to share that with you.

Find out more about me as you read my articles. I love to interact so drop me a message. I do read each one and would love to hear from you. Oh, one last thing you might want to know about me. I started my own business where I can now work my own hours and spend more time (sometimes quality, sometimes not so much) with my family.

Welcome again to my home. I am so glad we got a chance to find each other.
