$10 Off $25 or More Purchase at JC Penney this Friday and Saturday.

If you're heading to the mall this weekend, take this coupon with you for $10 off your $25 or more purchase at JC Penney. Coupon is valid this Friday, March 25 and Saturday, March 26. You can also use this coupon online at jcp.com. Just use code : SALEDAZE when prompted at checkout.

FREE Glasses at CoastalContacts.com This Friday

CoastalContacts.com is at it again! They're giving away another free 10,000 glasses this Friday, March 25. Just use code: USAFREE at checkout to redeem your free pair. You only need to pay shipping, handling, and any lens upgrade (if applicable). Giveaway starts at 12nn EST.  

I LOVE this company and I'm not being paid at all to write this. They do this promotion every once in a while and I know it's legit since hubby has already ordered and received 2 pairs from this company. Since his eyesight is pretty bad, we had to pay extra for thinner lenses. But after the extra charge plus shipping and handling, we still only had to pay around $28. Not bad at all as we shelled out $150 before for a pair of glasses from one of the local stores here after insurance. 

For more details re: the giveaway, like CoastalContacts.com in Facebook and click on the "FREE GLASSES" tab. 

2 Smoothies for $5 at Jamba Juice

I love Jamba Juice and their organic smoothies, but we don't have one here in Evansville (Boo! LOL.). I do try to get some whenever we go out of town though. 

Anyway, if you're lucky enough to have Jamba Juice where you live, here's a coupon you can take with you to get 2 16oz. smoothies for $5.  

This coupon can be used until March 30, 2011. 

Update: The Frugal Pinay's First Giveaway


Aaargh. Facebook is giving me such a hard time! Apparently, I should've created The Frugal Pinay's page via my personal account. And of course, stupid me just went ahead and created another account and along the way, I just got confused as they keep on asking me to put in my real name, import contacts, etc. That was frustrating since I don't want another personal account. I just want the page. 

Anyway, to make the long story short, I had to delete/deactivate the new page I created and now, I have to wait for 14 days for FB to permanently delete the page. After that, I can re-create The Frugal Pinay's FB page again (sigh). 

Despite my Facebook woes though, I decided that I'm still gonna end this giveaway this week. Yes people, it's still ON! ;) Of course, the rules will have to change a little as I can't really promote The Frugal Pinay's FB page right now. Anyway, you can join by doing any of the following: 

  • Follow my blog via "Google Friend Connect." 
  • Follow me on Twitter.
  • Send me a message on what deals/freebies you would like to see/hear/read more of in this blog
  • Share this giveaway via Facebook or Twitter.

Leave a comment below along with your email address and let me know what you did as each is equivalent to one entry. Giveaway will end on March 20, Sunday at 5pm CST. Drawing will be done via random.org to ensure fairness and the winner will be announced the same day at 8pm CST. Good luck! :)

Free Parenting Magazines

If you've read my post about the crazy diaper deals I get from Amazon and you are wanting to take advantage of the deals too, this post might be useful to you. 

As mentioned in my post, you can get the Amazon coupons inside various parenting magazines. I have subscriptions to almost all of them and I got them for free too (of course!). :D 

So far, I found links for a free subscription to two parenting magazines. Click on the name of the magazine/s you are interested in and it will take you to the link where you can sign up for the free subscription:

ValueMags used to offer a free subscription to Parenting, The Early Years magazine. But unfortunately, the offer has ended. You could still sign up in the site though. That way, they can send you an email if they're offering the free subscription again. 

As for the Parents magazine, you might try to get a subscription by signing up at StrongMoms.com. The site is by Similac and the last time I signed up, they gave me a 6-month subscription to Parents magazine, over $30 worth of vouchers for Similac formula, as well as one full-sized tub of Similac Advance and one full-size can of Similac Sensitive formula.  Pretty awesome freebie. :) 

Also, don't forget to check your local Babies R Us store or Burlington Coat Factory's Baby Depot as you can get the latest copy of BabyTalk or American Baby there for free.

Crazy Diaper Deals At Amazon

Ok, so I just finished ordering diapers from Amazon (again) and ended up paying $1.83 for 534 diapers (all different sizes) with free shipping. While I know that there are already a ton of people who are taking advantage of this crazy deals, I know too that some of you are still unaware of how this thing works. So, I'll try to explain how to do this deal as simply as I could. 

First, check if you have any of these parenting magazines: BabyTalk, Parenting (The Early Years), Parents, and American Baby. If you do, check if they have the Amazon tear-off cards/coupons (pictured above). If you don't have any of these magazines, head on over to your local Babies R Us store or Burlington Coat Factory's Baby Depot. They give away copies of BabyTalk magazine for free. A good place to go look for these coupons too is your pediatrician's office or your local library. There are people who sell them too on Ebay but I noted that one Amazon coupon usually sells for about $5-8 and that doesn't include shipping. I don't recommend that as it's fairly easy to get the coupons for free. 

Now, Amazon gives away 2 kinds of coupons: one is a 20% off diaper purchase and the other is a $10 off any purchase in Amazon's baby store. Apart from that, it it fairly important to note that they are printing 2 kinds of 20% coupons too. Some coupons will start with a "YT" and some begin with "YJ."  If you're lucky enough to get a "YJ," "YT," and $10 off coupon,  then you can stack them all together to get the lowest possible price you can get for diapers.

After you get all these coupons, it's time to sign up for an account at Amazon or sign-in if you already have an existing account. After you sign up/sign-in, join Amazon Mom to get free shipping and an additional 15% discount. It is free to join. 

After you do that, you can go ahead and choose the diapers you want/need. Once you have chosen your diapers, click on the tab "subscribe and save" to drive the price lower. This is also free service and you can cancel anytime (I usually cancel after my diapers arrive). After subscribing, you will then be directed to the page where you can add your coupon codes. Here's a computation of one of the deals I got after I joined Amazon Mom, ordered diapers via "subscribe and save," and put in all my coupons:

LUVS Size 5 Diapers - 150 count

Regular Price:                                                                                          $35.05

Amazon Mom + Subscribe & Save Discount:                         -    $10.52    
One "YT" 20% Off Coupon:                                                            -    $  7.01
One "YJ" 20% Off Coupon:                                                             -    $  7.01
One $100 Off Coupon:                                                                     -    $10.00
TOTAL:                                                                                                    $ 0.51

Now, is that not a ridiculously great deal?! Hope you can all get in on these deals while Amazon is still doing 'em. I don't know how long this deal is gonna last so I went ahead and used all the coupons I have. 

Let me know if you're planning to do the deal or if you have any additional questions for me. I'd like to hear what kind of deal you got! :)
