Alright! Without further adieu, this is the Polar Pillow review and GIVEAWAY that I know many of you have been looking forward to! And I'm super excited to tell you all about it! What is Polar Pillow you ask? "PolarPillow is an award winning cooling pillow that helps you sleep better so you can live better!" Polar Pillow (info sheet, PDF).
Before trying the Polar Pillow I read a lot about it and thought it was a pretty cool concept (lol no pun intended), and was very interested in trying it out. What I didn't know then at that time was that the Polar Pillow would be life changing, and I would absolutely fall in love with it!
For YEARS, almost my entire life really, I've always struggled with sleep! It usually takes me forever to fall asleep, and I usually wake up several times throughout the night. And most of the time, I hardly ever wake up feeling refreshed. And I kid you not, Polar Pillow has changed all of that!
With Polar Pillow, I fall asleep much more quickly, I sleep more soundly throughout the night, I wake up much less often, and I wake up feeling more refreshed! It's awesome! The hardest part for me has always been falling asleep in the first place, and Polar Pillow is just so cool and comfortable that it soothes me into relaxation and sound sleep quickly! It's a dream come true!
In addition to all of that, Polar Pillow is saving me $, too! Let me explain... My family and I need it to be very cold in our home to sleep at night. And seeing as we live in "The SunShine State" of Florida, as you can imagine, keeping a Southern home cold at night can be quite expensive! And that's what first attracted me to Polar Pillow in the first place! I was thinking, "hmm, if our body temperature feels cooler, maybe I can save on cooling costs." And I was right! It works! We don't need to set the thermostat down as low to sleep at night anymore thanks to the Polar Pillow! I'm so excited about that part! I bet Polar Pillow pays for itself in no time!
Another exciting discovery that we happened upon by accident just though our personal use, is that the Polar Pillow has helped both my young son and I with our frequent headaches! That alone is a God send! I can also imagine how helpful Polar Pillow must be to those that suffer with hot flashes, night sweats, fevers, and etc.! I should write a "thank you" letter to the Polar Pillow founder! I don't know why no one thought of this product sooner! Polar Pillow is pure genius!
Polar Pillow is literally life changing! If you suffer with any sleeping issues, or if you just want a better night's rest, do yourself a huge favor, and purchase a Polar Pillow! "You spend 30% of your life on a pillow...get the right one!" ~Polar Pillow!
Right now, the kind people at Polar Pillow are offering a 15% OFF discount to my readers when they place their orders & use promo code 1FRUGALMOM at check out! Plus, Polar Pillow is also currently offering FREE SHIPPING on all orders right now until February 2013! What are you waiting for?! "Love it or your money back!" ~Polar Pillow
EXCLUSIVE GIVEAWAY for 1FrugalMom Fans! The extremely generous people at Polar Pillow are kindly giving away an awesome Polar Pillow to one of my lucky readers! For your chance to win, ENTER HERE on the Rafflecopter Entry Form! "A great day begins with a cool night!" Polar Pillow
Note: PolarPillow comes with a PolarPack, that can be frozen, and inserted inside the pillow to provide extra ALL-NIGHT cooling. Polar Pillow states that "if used without the PolarPack, the pillow will still be cool on its own for approximately two hours of use. After being used, PolarPillow's coolness will re-energize within 30 minutes of exposure to room-temperature conditions." We personally found that the Polar Pillow remained cool enough for us all night long even without the PolarPack! Click here http://www.polar-pillow.com/FAQ.cfm for answers to frequently asked questions about the Polar Pillow. View my brief video review HERE (if you can't see it below).
** Giveaway open to continental U.S. residents only, 18+, and ends on 2/3/13. 1FrugalMom is not responsible for prize fulfillment. Sponsor will ship directly to the winner.

PRIZE: Travel Mirth In A Box Bundle (ARV $71.50)
Welcome to the Mirth In A Box Giveaway Event, we've teamed up with Adventures of 8, Blog with Mom, & Just Married with Coupons and our other blogging friends to bring a lucky winner a Travel Mirth In A Box Bundle prize valued at over $70!
Let me tell you a little about "Mirth in a Box:"
MirthInABox.com offers tons of gift boxes for every occasion. The owner of this business is very dedicated and really cares about the happiness or "mirth" that her boxes bring! Bobbie Anne from BlogWithMom.com reviewed a woman's travel related Mirth In A Box and was very pleased at what she found when she opened the box. Let's hear what she had to say about it:
The woman's travel box was so much fun to explore. I can see giving this box to someone who is getting ready to leave on a trip, and with holiday travel around the corner, this is perfect It has everything you need that you may forget in the midst of all the packing hustle and bustle. I received a universal travel adapter, a mobile phone holder that holds your phone on the wall while charging, pad of sticky notes, small notepad, an ink pen and a nice cosmetic bag FULL of goodies:
Here's what I found inside the cosmetic bag:
- Cucumber make up remover pads
- Jasmine fragrance nail polish remover pads
- Large travel pack of tissues
- Pill container
- 2 Type Tags - One says "Mine" and one says "Not Yours" (used for backpack ID, keychain, zipper pull or luggage tag)
- Pack of mini wipes
- Pack of flush-able toilet seat covers
- Stain remover wipes
- Sewing kit
- Ear plugs
- Small pack of mints
Going through this Mirth In A Box just makes you smile and want to go on a trip so you can use everything! This box was great and MirthInABox.com has SO many more to choose from!
I went to MirthInABox.com and looked through all of the travel boxes and I think this would be a great idea for me to purchase one of the kid related travel boxes for my boys before our next road trip It would give them something new to look through and would keep them busy for awhile in the car. Not only does MirthInABox.com offer gift boxes, they also offer individual products that would make perfect stocking stuffers. This site allows you to purchase a premade gift box or you can choose a category and easily build your own box. As you build your own box, the site will update the pricing so you can tell how much your box will cost as you are building it. I like the idea of building my own gift box, especially for my out of town family members. It would definitely save me time if I built their Mirth box and had it shipped straight to them instead of shopping for them and dealing with packing everything and then shipping it off.
Now what you have been waiting for... MirthInABox.com is sponsoring a giveaway and one lucky winner will receive a Travel Mirth In A Box Bundle similar to the one shown in the picture above.
PRIZE: Travel Mirth In A Box Bundle (ARV $71.50)
(The Travel Bundle comes with a colorful canvas cosmetic bag filled with travel-sized essentials for planes, trains, automobiles or desk drawers! Great gift to celebrate new job or wonderful way to say, Bon Voyage” . Plus you will get these add ins: Universal Travel Adapter and the Folding Mobile Phone Holder.)

Over the last few years, staycations (vacationing at, or near, home), have become increasingly popular. Enjoying a staycation is a no-brainer for those of us lucky enough to live near beautiful vacation hot spots. And I'm about to share with you what I've discovered to be the very best place to stay on beautiful Pensacola Beach! Plus, I'm going to tell you how you'll get the most bang for your buck while living it up like a King on a Jester's budget!
I first discovered The Holiday Inn Resort shortly after their grand opening. They were hosting a free event in which they invited the local public to come down and join in the family fun. The place is totally awesome! We found paradise!
And while there, we also discovered that giveaways and contests were taking place on their Facebook Fan Page. Naturally, I started following their page. I even won a few things! And quickly discovered that their fan page, as well as their blog, are both extremely informative! By following them, I receive great updates about local activities & events in the area, plus current specials and promotions going on.
Speaking of special promotions... right now, The Holiday Inn Resort on Pensacola Beach is currently running a promotion called "Endless Summer," which offers discounts on room rates from now until the end of November.
And a little birdie told me that soon they'll be running a campaign on their Facebook fan page called "Grab the Moment," which will be offering last minute, super extremely discounted, room rates. So make sure you follow them on Facebook! You can follow them on Twitter, as well.
Also, right now you can enter to win a 5 Night BEACHFRONT Vacation GIVEAWAY on Florida's Gulf Coast!!! QUICK & EASY ENTRY HERE!
As locals know, right now is the best time of the year to enjoy Florida's beautiful emerald waters, and stunning white sands, along the Gulf Coast! The weather is PERFECT! It's not too hot, and waters are still warm! Plus, there are no crowds. And room rates are greatly discounted.
Daytime is perfect for enjoying almost ANY outdoor activities, including swimming! And nighttime is perfect for strolling the beach and relaxing in their hot tubs! And the beds in the rooms are so incredibly comfortable, that you're sure to sleep as well as we did!
Another great savings opportunity you have with any room at the resort is the fact that every room contains a microwave, little refrigerator, and coffee/tea maker, and free wi-fi. Just imagine how much you can save with these items available, and conveniently located, inside your room! And the wifi range is great! It even works poolside near Riptides.
Another HUGE savings is the Lazy River Pool. Let me explain… their lazy river pool isn’t just shaped like a river, it really is a “river pool.” It has a strong current just like those ones at expensive water parks! And if you’ve ever been to one of those, then you know water parks normally charge more than $20 per person. So think how much you’ll save by not having to visit an expensive attraction because it’s built right into the resort and included for free with your stay! Read more about their amenities here.
The lazy river pool is my son’s absolute favorite part about the resort! He is more than happy to stay in there ALL day & night! It offers countless hours of fun & entertainment! Matter-of-fact, my son prefers the lazy river pool over getting in the ocean. He enjoyed swimming in it about 10 hours each day!
What I like about it is that it’s located in the perfect spot. Everyone one can simultaneously enjoy different things while easily staying within view of each other. As a parent, I’m very pleased to be able to can keep an eye on my child in the lazy river pool while at the same time also being able to enjoy the hot tubs, ocean, and even poolside service from the resort’s restaurant, Riptides.
Riptides has some awesome items on their menu to choose from! My favorite is their “Piled High Tide Spinach & Artichoke Dip” made with beer batter cheese soup with fresh parmesan and served on a tasty muffalatta bun and tortilla chips! Mmmmm!! Oh my gosh, it’s soooooo gooooooood!!! Seriously, it’s the BEST I’ve ever had in my entire life! If you’re a “spin dip fan” like me, you do not want to miss this! Trust me, you will not be disappointed!
There are also two huge savings opportunities while dining at Riptides.
The first one is that kids always eat FREE! That’s right, always free! No matter what day of the week, no matter what time, no matter what meal, children under 12 enjoy eating for FREE at Riptides! This alone is a huge savings for many of us with kids!
Secondly, everyone can benefit from the fact that Riptides accepts Restaurant.com gift certificates which can be purchased for pennies on the dollar when on sale. They are often offered online at 80% off. For example, for just a dollar or two, you can purchase a $25 off Restaurant.com gift certificate that can be used at thousands of different locations, including Riptides! This is an awesome savings value for anyone! Enter to WIN a $100 Restaurant.com eGift Card HERE!
While staying at the resort, you’ll also save tons on gas, and time, because you will not need to drive anywhere. Location is key, and The Holiday Inn Resort is in a prime spot! It’s centrally located within walking distance of everything you could need or want!
Just a short walk across the street is the new 360 Observation Wheel! And the sights from both the wheel, and from our room, were absoutely spectacular! We even saw dolphin from our room each morning!
The new & amazing 360 Observation Wheel is one big boy that is bad to the bone awesome! Seriously! It’s fully enclosed, air conditioned, 17 stories high, and offers an absolutely spectacular view that you will not easily forget! You can see for MILES!
And I’ve heard that many people whom are afraid of heights were not afraid when they rode the 360 Wheel! I’m guessing that’s because it’s such a SMOOTH and comfortable ride! It was very stable and extremely enjoyable! I definitely recommend it!
Save more by following them on their Facebook Fan Page to get alerts for discounted ride tickets, and special promotions. Checking out the Wheel is a must do while you’re there! The ride was awesome and gave plenty of time to capture “that perfect shot” with your camera.
I cannot express it enough! Staying at The Holiday Inn Resort is PARADISE! It’s the perfect place to relax, recharge, and refresh! The whole entire family will be more than pleased! And you’ll have more time to enjoy your weekend holiday because you won’t be driving around on the go from one place to the next, thus saving not only precious time, but also your hard earned monies as well! I parked my car there on Friday evening, and didn’t move it again until we checked out Sunday afternoon. Because I wasn’t running around, I was able to spend more time relaxing! It was total bliss!
The property is simply amazing! The amenities are fantastic! The views are absolutely breath taking! The service is excellent! The staff is extremely friendly and helpful! They made us feel like they rolled out the red carpet for us! And made us feel like the President/King of the World while staying there!
Our experience at the Holiday Inn Resort was fantastically WONDERFUL! Life long lasting treasured memories were created! And we’re looking forward to our next weekend getaway there soon! It’s the perfect escape after a busy week! See more of my weekend staycation photos here.
While staying at the Holiday Inn Resort, feel free to also visit their sister property, and next door neighbor, the Hilton. Many of my photos were taken from the outside balcony on the 17th floor of the Hilton looking down at the Holiday Inn Resort. The view will leave you speechless! And I was told that guests of the Holiday Inn Resort are welcome to also enjoy the pool at the Hilton, which has nice kiddie type water spouts, and poolside hammocks. Both properties are located directly on Pensacola Beach with walkways just feet from each other that extend right out almost to the water’s edge. No long walks lugging gear in the sand because the walkways land you directly on the coast, just a few feet of sand before you hit the water! It’s ideal!
Also, every Thursday on the Holiday Inn’s Facebook Fan Page they have “Random Acts of Fun” where you can win some cool prizes, like free tickets to ride the 360 Observation Wheel! So be sure to watch their wall every Thursday for your chance to win. Usually, they’ll post a photo, and you enter to win simply by commenting on it. It’s that easy!
One last suggestion… Not only are the rates, crowds, and weather, better this time of year, but so is seashell and treasure hunting because of all the passing storms that have stirred things up and washed stuff ashore. So dust off those metal detectors and bring them on out! I heard a man found a gold diamond ring there just a week or two ago! Woo hoo! How exciting is that?!
If you’re local to the area, or live close by, do yourself a favor, and take advantage of these awesome bargains! Come get your Toes in the Sand at the Holiday Inn Resort on Pensacola Beach! You’ll be more than glad you did!
