Lots of freebies while shopping today

I had such an awesome shopping day. It was supposed to snow so we left earlier then we usually do to try to beat the storm. Our first stop was McDonalds for lunch. I had Valentine’s Day coupons so I got both my kids a free chocolate milk. I saw on my app that since I had (over the past 6 months) bought 5 items from the mccafe menu I was able to get any size free. I chose a large Caramel Frappe. Second stop was Aldi’s and nothing special about that. Since @Sharon6345 and @JohnRoberts are always finding great stuff at the Dollar Tree we decided to stop there to look around. Wound up buying 5 things but really nothing worth shopping there for :( Our next stop was Walmart for lots more groceries. I got 25 shopkick points for walking in. Was scanning items on the shopkick app when I happened to be in the aisles by those items. In the yogurt section I was scanning an item and a guy said “Shopkicks?” and I said yes and told him I had just downloaded the app and wondered if it really works. He said yes that he’s earned over $200 worth of rewards from it and they send it right to the phone. Wanted to make sure @Tina30219 sees this! I earned 240 shopkick points today. They had a display set up and were giving out samples of two chobani products and giving out coupons for a free one. The best sale I found today was CoverGirl Mascara on clearance for $2. I used my $50 and $25 gift cards I got from the online sites I wrote about cashing out at last week. Using that I bought everything in the photo for only $15! Before driving home we stopped back to McDonald’s to use two more of the coupons for a free chocolate milk and free ice cream cone.

@sharon6345 I didn’t notice you hadn’t responded back until now. You could use shopkick with WiFi if the Walmart you go to has free guest wifi. I know dollar tree isn’t on the list of stores you can earn kicks at.

It sounds like it was a great day and now you can just sit back and laugh at the snow.

Today is a semi formal dance at the school and it's snowing and the roads aren't good. I feel bad for the parent having to go out on the roads to pick up their kids. I'm glad to be inside where it's warm. I've showered and am ready for bed soon.

Thanks for letting me know this works will definitely be looking into this app . Glad you got such great deals and your freebies. I am sure the kids had fun as well. I like when stores are giving out samples with coupons to go along with them. You did good for all you got and only paid $15 after your giftcards.

Since that app has such bad reviews I will make sure to try to cash out for rewards as soon as I can instead of letting them build up to get to a bigger reward. I have to look and see how many points I need for a reward.

@shaggin Right I have a friend that hoards her points and lets them build up. I told her she needs to cashout out because you never know when the site might close down.

I do not like buttercream frosting at all. I love cream cheese frosting the best but that only goes well on some things. Peanut butter frosting is yummy as well.

I have heard a lot of bad reviews online about Shopkick so I won't put much effort in and will cash out as soon as I reach a reward instead of letting it build up. Still waiting on the $3.50 credit on Inboxdollars for downloading it and doing my first kick. I will have to email them as its been over 2 weeks.

@shaggin I hope it works out for you! I like to cash out when I can instead of building up too for all apps/sites I use because I am afraid of the site going out of business & all the effort we put in to it!

Ahh then you won't be able to get the free samples I did anyway. They usually only do them for a half hour or so on certain days to introduce new products.

I just downloaded the app recently for $3.50 from Inboxdollars which I'm still waiting on. I've heard a lot of bad reviews so I was glad to run into another guy doing kicks who said he's earned well from them.

The coupon booklets were $1 and you get 12 coupons for free things. Seeing they are good until May I wish I had bought another booklet. The free caramel frappe was the best thing all day yummy

So happy and proud of you! Thode McDonald's coupons sound great. I don't go there that often to it to have seen the coupons but wish I had! But only pay for fast food if I have a coupon for it! I do get coupons in the mail but not very many Mcdonald's ones, Mostly from Arby's and once in awhile from Burger King.

The coupons were in a Valentine's Day booklet. They are only for kids though. I don't get the newspaper so I never get the coupon inserts.

@shaggin Oh, i thought these were for anybody who bought them. I get the fast food coupons and sometimes other coupons by mail as i do not get the newspaper anymore myself as i had so many newspapers I did not read so could not justify the cost anymore. The coupons come in the mail in an insert of fliers of grocery store sales for the area.

McDonalds prices are pretty low and Walmart has very low prices as well but I guess the prices in general here are more then where you are. I've heard on here Canada is much more expensive.
