Free Personalized Luggage Tags, Clorox Green Works & More

Dear Diary,
Sorry to say, I'm still preoccupied. Life has been like a roller coaster lately. Anyhow wanted to let you know about these free personalized luggage tags KLM is offering. You can pick from their pics or use one of your own. I thought this was kind of cool.
Also Matchstick this promo agency provide me with a chance to try Clorox Green Works natural laundry detergent for free. I've been using this for the past week and I love it. It's a very concentrated laundry detergent so a 30 load size bottle is quite small. Love the scent of it; love the packaging and love the fact that it gets the job done. By the way Clorox Green Works is 95% natural and is not tested on animals. And you can use it in all types of washing machines; even the high efficiency ones. Gotta Love it!
I know I told you about Mark's Work Warehouse before. Well I had one more of those great $10 cash cards. Went back and used it to buy a quilted vest and a long-sleeved waffle shirt for myself. By using the gift card and buying from clearance I got these two items for around $11 including taxes. Woo Hoo!
Freebies lately have included: Neutrogena Healthy Skin anti-wrinkle cream, Clive perfume samples and last but not least, a bottle of Sunlight Green Clean Wild Lavender Cold Water Power laundry detergent that greeted me at my door. This arrived courtesy of UrbanMoms. When I get a chance to try this one, I'll get back to you to let you know what I think about it.
Winnings that have arrived are a coupon for a free bag of Purina Pro Plan dog food and 2 Mott's Clamato Caesar bartending kits plus tickets to the Metro Food & Wine Show.
Cheers for now,

Alberto Styling Product free & Mark's Work Warehouse

Dear Diary,
I've been preoccupied lately, so my apologies for not sharing with you. But I'll try and make it up to you I promise.

First of all if you would like a coupon for a free Alberto European styling product, become one of their first 20,000 fans.
I don't know if this was available to you, but it was for me so I'm gonna tell you about. Well last week my Mark's Work Warehouse flyer had a great coupon attached to the front of it. It wasn't just their regular coupon for $10 off when you spend $50. Oh no it was much better than that. It was a $10 cash card that you could use when you spend $10. The only restrictions were that it couldn't be used to purchase socks, gloves, underwear, headwear and gift cards, but no worries Mark's has plenty of other little items you can use the cash card and basically get em free. Stocking stuffers galore! Anyhow I just happened to acquire 3 of these cash cards, thanks to neighbours who aren't into flyers. So dh and I headed to MWW and we each got a shirt on clearance that was regular priced at $30 for under $6 including taxes. And I've still got 1 cash card left; gonna head back before Nov 22 cause that's when it expires. I sure hope you didn't toss out such a valuable coupon; check your blue bins before it's too late.

Free Book Reminder & winnings

Dear Diary,
Hope you got in on the free book offer that I posted just the other day. I did.
Just wanted to tell you that I really enjoyed the Rockettes that I attended the other day; awesome event plus the fact that the tickets were free was a bonus. Since then I'm happy to tell you that I won again and again and again and again. Firstly 100,000 aeroplan miles, next a $25 visa gift card from Energizer, then a $10 gift card for Starbucks and today tickets to the wine & food expo in To and a Mott's Clamato bartending gift pack. Oh what a winning week it's been!

Oh and I also received a free product coupon from Matchstick to try a new product from Green Works. It's for a natural laundry product and I can't wait to try it out. I really like some of the other Green Works products that I've tried so far: the window/glass cleaner and the all purpose cleaner, so I'm guessing I'll be happy with the laundry product. I'll let you know.

Free Book & My Winnings

Dear Diary,
Word has it that Chatelaine has another free book offer. Oh how I love free books! In the past I've received a couple of free books from them; a Shopaholic book and The Girls. Really liked The Girls even though it wasn't a book I would have considered reading. Never got a chance to read the Shopaholic one cause I left it at my dd's house in Europe. Ah well, guess I'll have to reserve that one from the library. Anyhow this offer for this free book opens on Thursday November 12, 2009 at 12:01 p.m., so if you want it, you might want to be there or you might as well forget about it. Have no clue what book it is though lol!

On another note, my winnings of late include an Incredible Hulk DVD, a $10 Gift Card to Beyond The Rack, Biore samples from Flare, tickets to see the Radio City Christmas Spectacular and some kids adventure prize pack from Fruitloops.

Free Calendars & Old Navy Coupons

Dear Diary,
Yes it's that time of year again when there are all kinds of free calendars to be had. I should know, I ended up with all kinds of them last year. Telus has a really cute one, at least I think so. I got it last year and signed up for it again. You don't even have to be a Telus customer to get one. Hey who in their right mind would pay for a calendar when you can get them free. Mind you, I would consider buying one for a gift and I certainly would accept one if someone bought me one. But I think you get the picture. When I discover more free calendar offers, I'll let you know.

If your a fan of Old Navy another way to get some great coupons, is by clicking on various items in their weekly flyer. These coupons are in addition to the ones you can get when you sign up for their email. This flyer apparently is up on Thursday evenings and the timing of it varies. But by clicking on some of items and mannequins, you can get some really great coupons which can be used for shopping at Old Navy that week. It's kind of like a treasure hunt. Some of the high value coupons are available in limited quantities and disappear rather quickly. So why not check it out. Can't believe that I just discovered this! Ah well guess I learned something new today, so it must be a good day.

Living Well Free Zantac Trial Offer

Dear Diary,
LivingWell is doing it again, giving away free samples that is. This one is for Zantac but it's not up and running yet. But when it is rest assured the 2000 samples they have to give away will be scooped up in no time. So I don't want to hear about it if you missed out on this one.

Also don't know if you've ever thought about this but I've found it's a great idea to sign up for your favourite shop's newsletters. Mind you, you will get email from them regularly some will give you more than others. But it is definitely worth it as often they will email you coupons or offers and let you know first about special sales. Just last weekend, I received a 25% coupon for Old Navy and best part was it was valid even on clearance merchandise. By the way, my sister and I shared this one and got some great deals. Please note something that I have done is set up a different email to receive these offers so that way your personal stuff isn't cluttered with a lot of other email. I also use this email to enter contests, do surveys etc etc.
Oh by the way, I won a DVD the other day.
