More Ways to Save Money, Earn Money and Find Coupons!

June 9, 2010

I’ve gotten quite a few new readers lately and I wanted to share some of   the places that you can register at for free and get some freebies and/or coupons and also share a few ways to earn a little money or rewards:

P&G Everyday Solutions – Join to Get Free Samples and Coupons on P&G Products You Know and Love

Baby Center – Get BabyCenter’s free email newsletters that allow you to track your baby’s development week by week and includes articles on important health and safety topics handpicked for your particular stage of pregnancy. You’ll also receive valuable coupons, sale notices, and free offers from BabyCenter and their partners.

Dollar General Savings Zone – Get member only perks, specials, and more!

Home Depot Garden Club – Sign-up to get several coupons, specials and savings throughout the year on gardening things and savings at Home Depot.

Home Made Simple – Sign up for Home Made Simple newsletter and be among the first to know about special offers, samples, coupons, and sweepstakes offers from brands like Cascade, Dawn, Febreze, Mr. Clean, and Swiffer.

Vocal Point – This is one of my favorite freebie sites and I’ve gotten several free samples and high-value coupons from them.

Some of the other free programs that I often share free codes for are Pampers Gift to Grow, Huggies Enjoy the Rides and Juicy Rewards from Tropicana. You’ll often get freebies just from finding free codes online.

Great Coupon Sites to Check Daily: Coupons.comRedPlum and Smart Source. Also, Target has several coupons on their own site. Note: Some of Target’s are store coupons, while others are manufacturer coupons. You can also sign-up for coupons to be added to your store loyalty cards (of select stores) through Cellfire. UPromise is another place you can load your shopping loyalty cards to but with this one, you’ll earn money for college just from the purchases that you make.

Shop Online Much? Then you’ll want to sign-up for eBates and ShopAtHome. You’ll get $5 added to your account when you sign-up through those links. Search for the stores you shop at most to get Cash Back added to your accounts on your purchases.

MyPoints.com
Need to earn money? Two of the survey sites I recommend the most to  my readers for surveys are MySurvey and MyPoints. Others some of my readers have mentioned are: Ipso I-say, and Toluna. They’ve also earned money through the National Consume Panel Homescan by Nielsen. (If you get into taking a lot of surveys, you may want to download something like Roboform that populates information for you quickly to speed up the process.) (Read more about surveys on this link.)

And my favorite free online place to join is SwagBucks. Use code SUMMEROFSWAG through June 11, 2010 to get 50 SwagBucks added to your account. You’ll earn SwagBucks for doing online searches through them, finding free codes and more. Turn these in for prizes or gift cards for places like Amazon or even Southwest Air.

Don’t forget to check out my Couponing Basics and Coupon Class Materials for more info on couponing and how some store deals work. Also, I did an entire series in May of 2009 on 31 Ways to Save on Your Grocery Budget that might help you save money. Lastly, several of my readers have found some of my postings on Freezer Cooking to be money-savers, as well.

I hope that you’ll find more ways to save some money, earn coupons and even maybe earn some prizes or money with some of these programs or resources!

Hi! First time to your site. Love it–I too am a geeky girl! New to couponing about 8-10 weeks and I cannot understand the Vocalpoint thing. I signed up weeks and weeks ago and NOTHING. When I open their emails I don’t even know where to go and what to do exactly. So I just poke around for a while and leave in frustration. Is there some magic formula that I’m just not getting? I want free stuff and hi value q’s too! Thanks in advance for any advice.

Hi Susan,

Vocal Point will randomly send out the free samples and coupons. After you get them, then you can go onto the site and review them or share your opinions if you want. It’s all just a waiting game. But the freebies are so hot that it’s worth the wait!

Hello Jaycie, this is my first time visiting your site as well and I love it. I am extremely new with using coupons. I actually just started when the show on TLC came on!! Now, I am looking for some help from you. Right now I have all my coupons in a pile, they are not filed or in a binder, nothing, I just keep printing and cutting…lol I should be able to do this on my own but I am having such a horrible time. So here is where I need your expert advise….I am getting ready to put my coupons in an envelope thing with the seperate pockets(I dont know how to explain it) and I am having the hardest time labeling the tabs. Now I was on a website last night and there was a list like “Grains” then anything that had grains in it would go in that section. I hope I am explaining this good enough. I was wanting to mark the tabs like that, then glue an index card to the front of the pouch that lists the majority of the coupons I would have in there. I hope I am not being a pain, but I need to get this together or all my coupons are going to get lost. 1 more thing…since I am starting with coupons and visiting a bunch of different sites, I want to get another screen name and of course cant think of a good one. I want something that obviously has to do with couponing then my name. Either Regina or Gina. I dont care if it is my name first,then a couponing term or vise versa. I really hope I am not bothering you with off the wall questions, so forgive me if I am :) Keep up the good work on your site, as I visit a few times a day now and get alot of good information from it. I look forward to hearing from you soon.

Hi Regina,

Here are how I label my tabs:

Baking Products, Beverage, Breakfast, Bread/Rice/Pasta, Canned Goods, Condiments, Snacks, Frozen Foods, Meats/Fish, Dairy,Paper Goods, Beauty,Baby, Household, Medicine, Personal Care, Pet Care, Store Coupons, Misc, Using Today and Expiring Soon.

I’m not sure on your screenname but I’m sure you’ll come up with a good one. It can be as simple as coupongina.

Blessings,
Jaycie

I really enjoyed this article. I am new to couponing and your site has a lot of helpful information. In the beginning I found couponing overwhelming, but with websites like yours, it makes it alot easier. Now I just take what I learn, and incorporate that into my own thing. I look forward to visiting this site. Thank you for the tip on Vocal Point.
