Want free money to spend at JCPenney?

Go into your local store tomorrow morning first thing when they open so you can score a Reward Card.  At the door, they will be giving away Reward Cards worth anywhere from $10 to $100!  I can’t wait to go in there tomorrow morning to see what I get! They were giving them away this morning also but I didn’t know about it and I was working, otherwise I would have went this morning too.

Good luck! Let me know what value you guys get!

I scored this cute bracelet! I had a $10 off $10 coupon and the bracelet was originally  $20 but it was 50% off.

Influenster #EverPure VoxBox Review

I love Influenster so much because I get to try new products for free and I can’t say that I’ve ever had a complaint about any of the products I’ve received from them.  Included in my EverPure Voxbox are the following products pictured below:  L’Oreal EverPure Repair & Defend Shampoo, Conditioner, Mask and Lotion.

I felt like the shampoo cleaned my hair well and the conditioner got the knots out of my hair easily.  While I was using them I felt like I was at a salon because of their scent.  The hair mask made my hair soft and manageable.  Their hair lotion was easy to apply and made my hair smooth after I blowdryed it.

Above is a photo of me after I used all of the L’Oreal EverPure Repair & Defend products.  I like how smooth and soft it made my hair feel and my hair looks really healthy!  I received these products free for testing and review purposes.

If you’re interested in getting opportunities to try out stuff for FREE like I do, click on the green Influenster button on the righthand side of the main page.

I would love to hear from you!  What are your favorite hair products?

K-Mart Double Couponing Adventure: Week of April 17th, 2016

For as much as I love Double Couponing at K-Mart, I have to say I was pretty ecstatic when I found out they were doing the Beauty & Health Double Couponing for Shop Your Way Rewards Members event again (4/16 & 4/17 only) within 2 weeks!  I scored all of this stuff for FREE this week plus I have points left over from my Double Couponing Adventure from 2 weeks ago (see past blog post).

Here is the breakdown:

-The stuffed bunnies are obviously not health or beauty related but they were in the 90% off Easter Clearance section and I HAD to get them for my nieces for next year.  They’re so cute!

They were originally $3.99, marked down to 39 cents each.

-Garnier Fructis Volume Extend Fortifying Conditioner $3.99. Used $2 off coupon, which doubled to $4, making it FREE!

-Dial Frozen Yogurt Cooling Body Wash FroYo with Yogurt Protein original price was $5.99, sticker price shows it was marked down to $4 but it actually rang up $3. Used $1.50 off coupon which doubled to $3 making it FREE!  I wish I had more of those coupons on hand because I would have bought a lot more.  If you have a K-Mart nearby and you have a lot of good Dial coupons, might want to check this out.  If you see this post in time before K-Mart closes today, take advantage of the double couponing deal since it ends today.  It smells really good and I think it’s interesting that it has a cooling effect.  I’ve never tried anything like that before.

-Right Guard Xtreme Heat Shield deodorant original price was $4.79, marked down to $3.50.  Had $2 off coupon which doubled to $4 making it FREE plus a moneymaker.  My boyfriend can never have too many deodorants on hand!

-Rimmel London Stay Matte Liquid Mousse Foundation $5.49.  Had $2 off coupon which doubled to $4 making it $1.49.  I decided to try a different shade (203 True Beige) because I think the exact same brand of this one that I have right now might be too light.  I really enjoy using these.  They are easy to apply without any brushes or sponges and go on smoothly.  It’s also lasted me quite a while.

-Super Poligrip Denture Adhesive Cream $2.49.  Had a coupon for a full value 0.75 ounce one making it FREE!  I don’t use this but these coupons for completely FREE items are a great filler to get you to the minimum $25 mark.  This will be donated since I don’t know anyone personally who uses this.

-Colgate Maximum Strength Sensitive Smart Foam with whitening Toothpaste $5.29  Didn’t have a coupon or anything for this.

-Covergirl Star Wars Limited Edition The Super Sizer by Lashblast Mascara $5.99.  Used a $2 off coupon which doubled to $4, making it $1.99.  I have so many mascaras but this was a pretty good deal and it’s limited edition!  This is the only one I happened to randomly find in the store so I got pretty lucky because I didn’t think I’d end up getting a chance to use this coupon, let alone double it.

-Covergirl Bombshell Shineshadow by Lashblast in Platinum Club.  I don’t know the original price but the sale price was $1.87 and I had a $3 off coupon making it a moneymaker.  I remember hearing good things about these eyeshadows so I’m excited to try it and the color looks really cute!

After all of the moneymaker coupons and using some of my Shop Your Way Rewards Points, everything was FREE!  I don’t think K-Mart usually does moneymakers but this time they did and I can’t complain.

See my first K-Mart Double Couponing Blog Post for details on how to Double Coupon in general.  Please post below if you guys have additional questions or if you want to share about your couponing experiences.

Whether you are new to couponing or are a long-time couponer, good luck until next time! Happy couponing guys!

Want to Score some Summer Shades? Keep reading

I was so excited when I found out that I could get a pair of sunglasses for free, especially these ones because they’re really cute.  They have a variety to choose from, but I selected these because they would match anything.

How to get your shades:

-Go to https://www.myparliament.com/gconnect/login_input.action

-Must be 21 or older to join the website.  You don’t have to be a smoker, if they ask what you smoke, just put any answer

-Make yourself an account (you will probably have to confirm the account, so make sure to check your junk mail in case it doesn’t go to your Inbox)

-Every Monday (until May 1st, 2016) at 6am Pacific Standard Time, they will give away 10,000 pairs of sunglasses.  What I did was set an alarm on my calendar and logged into my account at 6am PST on the dot and I was able to get a pair.

-Go to Offers on the upper left hand side of the webpage

-Pick which pair you want and there you go!

-I reccommend having your account made ahead of time so that you are ready to go by next Monday at 6am PST.

Good luck everyone!  I hope you all get a chance to pick out a cute FREE pair of sunglasses.

Please comment below if you have any questions and I’d love to hear from those of you who end up getting a pair.

K-Mart Double Couponing Adventure: Week of April 3rd, 2016

IMG_20160403_211319

Last night on Instagram I found out that K-Mart was allowing double coupons on Health, Beauty and Stationary items only for yesterday and today.   If you know me, of course I was freaking out so I went there today and used my stash of high value health and beauty coupons.  I’m not sure if it required the $25 minimum subtotal before coupons or not because my subtotal was above $25. The customer service cashier said she didn’t even know about this promotion that was going on.

Anyways, so here’s the breakdown:

-Biore Baking Soda Pore Cleanser $6.99

I hear cleaning your face with baking soda is all the rage. I have a free sample that came with the coupon I used today but I haven’t even tried it yet lol.

-Poise Liners 26 count $2.99

I don’t think I’ve ever paid for a package of Poise liners before. I always wait to use my coupons at K-Mart during Double Coupon Week. I just request Poise samples several times per year and get my coupons that way.

-Always Discreet liners 24 count $3.99

I also use the coupons that come with these samples just during Double Coupon Week.  This time I had a newspaper coupon. The local paper gets dropped off randomly at my house every once in a while and I don’t have a subscription anymore. I cancelled my subscription because I noticed that I’d always seem to be missing coupons from my paper.

-Garnier Whole Blends Hydrating 2 in 1 Coconut Water Vanilla Milk Extracts Shampoo/Conditioner  $4.99

I haven’t tried a 2 in 1 in a long time because they don’t seem to condition my hair very well, but I thought I’d give this one a shot. I had the opportunity to sample 3 different scents of Whole Blends through Crowdtap here recently and really enjoyed using them. This scent that I just picked up has been my favorite thus far.

-Garnier Clean Soothing Makeup Removing Towelettes $5.99

I was excited to try these because I haven’t really tried out too many makeup removing wipes and I’m still in the market for finding which wipes suit me best.

-OB 40 count tampons $6.99 on sale.

I think the original price is $7.99 or $8.99.  I don’t really use tampons so I usually give these to a friend. I received a full value coupon for these in the mail along with a little box of tampons.  This is the 2nd full value coupon I’ve received from them this year.  And I’m not complainin’ lol. These kinds of coupons are good for many reasons, but I like them because if you need to get to the $25 subtotal for Double Coupon Week, it helps you get there without having to use your own money.

Biore-Had $2 off coupon which doubled to $4 off making it  $2.99

Poise-Had $2 off coupon which doubled to  $4 making it  FREE!

Always -Had $2 off coupon which doubled to  $4 making it FREE!

Whole Blends -Had $2 off coupon which doubled to  $4 making it  99 cents.

Garnier makeup removing wipes-Had $2 off coupon which doubled to  $4 making it  $1.99

OB-Had full value coupon valued up to  $8.99 making it FREE!

Today I saved over 81%!

Also, I’m not sure what the promotion was but somehow I earned $10 in points today. So I spent almost $6 today but got $10 back. Pretty good deal if you ask me!
