There are some little known facts out there that I personally have found helpful and think would help most of you parents and families out there. I only put up a few, I’m sure I’ll think of more after I publish this, but feel free to share your own in the comment section as well. I always love new tips and tricks.
Are you one of those parents accumulating small toys and books from fast food restaurants? Chick-fil-A offers it’s customers an option to trade the unopened toy/book in for a free kids cone or cup of ice cream. Little Miss A prefers their ice cream over the books which are usually too young or too old for her anyway.
Pampers.com has a great reward “program” called Gifts to Grow, basically, when you purchase Pampers products, wipes, diapers, etc, there is a code or sticker on the item. Once you register at their website you can enter your codes for points towards free merchandise. Most of the items are Shutterfly related, but I have seen gift cards, toys, and free baby product coupons as well.
With Miss A we received a Melissa & Doug Monster Bowling set worth $25. I did not have to pay for shipping, although I think back when the program started a few years ago they did make you pay. Anyway I think it’s a great idea, if you’re already buying Pampers anyway why not take the few extra minutes to enter the codes and get something free. And if you don’t want to use your codes feel free to send them to me 😉
What’s the scoop on Bed Bath & Beyond coupons? Well of course you can use them at any Bed Bath & Beyond, and often Bed Bath & Beyond will accept them if they are expired as well. Bed Bath & Beyond is in the same company as Buy Buy Baby so they allow you to use their coupons at their baby stores as well. I have also heard that some, not all, BabiesRUs stores will accept either Bed Bath & Beyond or Buy Buy Baby coupons because they are competing stores.
What are some ways you save money that others may not know about?
