You got that for FREE?

This week the Today Show did a special on things you can get for FREE.  Totally FREE – no strings attached!  See the video here. With financial times as crazy as they are for everyone these days I quickly got out a pen and paper to share with you!  Here we go – get ready to be exited!

1. FREE FOOD –  Ikea offers FREE food!  Mondays you can get a free breakfast and Tuesdays kids under 12 can eat for free.  Sounds like a plan to me!

2. FREE E BOOKSKindle has 100,000 books in its lending library you can borrow and read on your own time!

3. FREE PRINTABLE PAPER – If you are a designer, I know you love paper and everything about the scrapbooking aisle at your local craft store!  But, here is something that is actually VERY useful.  This website allows you to download, FOR FREE, hundreds of types of paper – from lined college ruled, score keeping, chart paper, etc. to print out on your home computer.  They even have calligraphy paper!

It was also suggested to check stores like Staples and Office Max to get your coupons for paper.

4. FREE FACIAL!  Ok people this is new to me, but did you know if you go to any Clarins counter you can sign up for a FREE 20 minute facial?  It is called Skin Time and they will do a mini facial on you to see what products you need.  I’m asking myself how many malls there are here in town with a Clarins counter!

5. FREE CHOCOLATE – If you join Godiva’s Free Loyalty Program, you can pick up a FREE piece of chocolate once a month!  If you prefer Lindt, just walk into one of their stores and they will give you a sample.  Good thing they only do this once a month, huh?


IHOP – Sign up for IHOPs Pancake Revolution E-Club and you will get 3 FREE meals: one on your sign up date, one on your birthday, and one on the anniversary of your sign up date!

Baskin-Robbins – Sign up for the Baskin Robbins birthday club and you will get a FREE cone on your birthday!

Starbucks – Sign up for the Starbucks Rewards and you will get a coupon for a FREE drink of choice on your birthday.

Sephora – Sign up to be a Beauty Insider and you will collect points on every dollar you spend, PLUS you get a FREE gift during your birthday month!

I hope this helps save you some $$$$!
