Posted by 1FrugalMom on April 13, 2013 at 2:10 AM Comments comments (0)

**UPDATE (5/23/13)!  "Newbies" can now earn an extra $10 if they redeem 5 offers within their first 2 weeks of registering HERE!  Wow!  Take advantage of it now! They were not offering this when I signed-up, and I don't know how long it will last!

Check out the IbottaApp, a new, and FREE, app that PAYS YOU CASH for buying your favorite groceries & products!  "Ibotta is a fun & easy way to earn $20 or more each time you go shopping.  The more you use it, the better & more personalized your offers become."  Simply purchase items you normally do, and get cash back via PayPal!  You can also earn $1+ for every person you refer (no limit)!  For more information, and to sign-up for free, click HERE.


            Some of the current stores that participate, include: 

7-Eleven, Bi-Lo, CVS Pharmacy, City Market, Dillions, Dollar General, Dominick's, Duane Reade, Family Dollar, Food4Less, Fred Meyer, Fry's, Giant Eagle, H-E-B, Harris Teeter, Hy-Vee, Ingles, King Soopers, Kroger, Meijer, Military Commissary, Pathmark, Pavilions, Pick 'N Save, Publix, QFC, Ralphs, Randalls, RiteAid, Safeway, ShopRite, Smith's, Stop & Shop, Target, Tom Thumb, Vons, Walgreens, Walmart, Wegmans, WinCo Foods, and Winn-Dixie, just to name a few!

You can easily earn $20 or more every time you use Ibotta!  So what are you waiting for? 

How to get the most out of Ibotta

- Before shopping, check for offers on your favorite products. 

- After shopping, take a picture of your receipt to earn cash. 

- Every time you redeem an offer, they’ll send you a new one. Tell them your likes and dislikes and they’ll send you personalized offers.

- Pamper yourself with the cash or donate it to any school in America.

Reminder: Since ibotta is basically a rebate after purchase, you can still use both store & manufacturer coupons to cut your initial out-of-pocket expense. :)

Answer 1 multiple choice question and get paid $1!

Posted by 1FrugalMom on February 11, 2013 at 10:35 PM Comments comments (0)


Woo hoo!  I just received another payment from PollBuzzer (see my PayPal screen shot below)!  It's EASY to EARN FREE $$! Answer ONE quick question (or more if you choose), and get paid on Monday! It's that easy! Sign-up to be a panelist with Pollbuzzer (it's completely FREE)!  And simply answer ONE question (a multiple-choice question), and get paid $1 via PayPal every Monday!  

Answer as many, or as few, questions as you choose (they email the questions to you after you sign-up - and they don't spam you - promise)!  Personally, I don't like survey sites (b/c they're too time consuming), so PollBuzzer works perfect for me! It's quick & easy!  It's the fastest buck you'll ever make in just 15 seconds!  Just click on "become a panelist" to get started.

You can also "earn an additional $1 for each new PollBuzzer Panelist that you refer! Just send the unique referral link below to your friends, family, colleagues, or whoever else you want to refer. Each time a new panelist joins PollBuzzer after coming to the site using your link, you'll be credited with the referral. Once that new panelist answers 4 questions, we'll know it was a successful referral, and $1 will be credited to your account." Here's my referral link: http://pollbuzzer.com/?r=V3JsUnFpRE1xNXFHSUQxbXo5cUhTQT090

Note:  Use an email address that you check often (don't worry - no spam), because you're only given a limited amount of time to respond to the email(s), and answer the question(s).

FREE Cosmetics of Your Choice! Hurry!

Posted by 1FrugalMom on October 21, 2012 at 3:25 AM Comments comments (8)

UPDATE! THIS OFFER HAS EXPIRED (new offer HERE)! However, you can still get the sign-up credit (but it's been reduced from $20 to $10).  And you can still score additional free credits, good towards free Coterie cosmetics, by referring friends. UPDATE:  I can verify that this is indeed a legit offer!  My items arrived today (10/26/12) via Fed-Ex!   Note:  I upgraded to the free express shipping.  



Get a FREE $40 credit!  You will receive a $20  $10 credit for opening an account with THIS LINK! And another $20 credit for using promo code DEMETERVIP at check-out.  CLICK HERE and then click sign up and create an account. THIS DEAL IS FOR NEW ACCOUNTS ONLY.  

Once you create a new account, click on either 29 cosmetics, Stila, or the Perfume. You will have a $40 credit so anything under $35 will be FREE ($5 of the $40 credit goes towards S&H - that's why your total has to be $35 or less)!  Select from a free 29 Cosmetics Lipstick, Lip Gloss & Bag, Stila 2 Piece Eye Collection, or Noteworth Eue Eau de Toilette, from Coterie!  On the checkout screen where it says "Shipping Address," click "add address," and enter your address


For "promo code" enter DEMETERVIP and click "APPLY CODE" then scroll to the bottom to to see that the total will be zero (unlike at the top of the screen).  And if for some reason even after entering the code you still only get $20 off then please log out of the account then log back in and enter the code again.  And currently, you can also earn a $20 credit for each friend you refer!  Refer friends to earn even more free credits!  Note:  Credits expire after two months.  


Just a quick disclaimer:  While I know this site is 100% legitimate, & the codes are legitimate, too, there is always the possibility for these orders to be cancelled. So keep that in mind.

My Favorite Frugal/Freebie Sites! These sites changed my life! And I'm excited to share them with you! If you love free & frugal, follow these sites!

Posted by 1FrugalMom on June 20, 2012 at 5:10 PM Comments comments (0)

Below is a list of my favorite freebie sites (listed in no particular order). The best thing to do is follow the sites listed below on Facebook by "liking" their Facebook Fan pages. Then that way their posts (& thus awesome deals, aka free stuff) will show up in your Facebook news feed. Half the freebies you'll find are mail offers (fill out a short form online and the stuff comes to you free through the mail. Keep in mind, some mail offers take weeks, sometimes even months, to receive but are often worth the wait).

The other half are free locally via coupons combined w/ sales. These sites will provide links to those coupons, and tell you where the free items are located (ie: Walgreens, CVS, Target, Walmart, etc.). They watch the circulars for sales, and match those sales up w/ available coupons (most can be printed from online), and tell you where to get the stuff for free. (Note: If you're not into using Facebook much, then you may want to consider signing-up for their daily email alerts instead.)


Since following the sites below, I haven't had to spend $$ on items like shampoo, conditioner, toothpaste, body wash, deodorant, or razor blades b/c I've received it all for free! I've received all sorts of free stuff (see pics) including free pizzas from Domino's, PizzaHut, PapaJohn's, and Hungry Howie's; plus lots of free t-shirts, quality make-up, jewelry, books, food products (like coffee, cereal, snacks, energy drinks, etc.), health & beauty products, dog food & products, laundry detergent, air freshener, magazines, countless free eBooks, tampons/pads, vitamins, perfume, and the list goes on! All for FREE! And that's just the beginning!

The sites below have really allowed me to stretch my budget, and live comfortably, on next to nothing. I've also learned many great frugal ideas for re-purposing everyday used items from around the house. These sites have also taught me how to make my own effective home cleaners using everyday household items for pennies on the dollar. The savings is unbelievable!

Also, if you've ever considered blogging, these are great sites to learn from. Many even provide info about blogging on their sites to share w/ their readers.  Finding the sites below has been a God send to my family, and I'm certain they'll be a blessing to yours as well!

Without further ado, here are my favorite sites:
































I have one more favorite site I’d like to share, but I’m not including it above b/c it’s not a “freebie site.” But I’d like to share it w/ you b/c it’s one of the most awesomely frugal sites I’ve ever seen! It’s full of awesome ideas, and I’m sure you’ll love it! It’s: HOMESTEADING / SURVIVALISIM at https://www.facebook.com/homesteading yes, that’s a Facebook Fan Page, and yes they have also have a dot com website, but I’m not listing that address b/c their dot com address appears to just be a sales page. So follow them on Facebook to gain tons of valuable, priceless actually, wonderfully frugal & creative ideas!  

People always ask me where I find the awesome stuff I do, well now you know! Enjoy!

** Please note: I am NOT affiliated w/ any of the sites listed. And this is NOT a sponsored post. The sites listed above have honestly helped me tremendously, and I sincerely hope they'll help you, too!  Correction: And I'm CERTAIN they'll help you, too!  Don't be stingy, be sure to "LIKE" and "SHARE" this post to also help your family & friends, as well! I'm sure they'll thank you for it later!
