Check out these 5 freebies for your family
By Aimee Heckel
Jennie Sanford is so keen on making saving money fun and easy, she does the grunt work for you.
Sanford runs the popular money-saving website, Bargain Blessings, offering ways so save on groceries, travel — pretty much everything you can think of. She and her small team test all freebies before promoting them, to wade through the spam and hoaxes. She also grades grocery deals, so you know whether the deal is excellent, a rare low price (grade A — stock up!) or whether it’s discounted, but could still be better (grade C).
“You can still technically earn your family money by saving your family money,” Sanford says. “We know everyone’s really busy, so we’re making saving easy for really busy people.”
You really can get lots of incredible things for free, she says.
“My team and I spend all day sharing freebies and deals,” she says. “There’s definitely an abundance.”
Here are Sanford’s top five family-focused freebies right now:
3. Free flavored waffle. Bring this coupon to the Waffle House Monday through Friday through May 16 and get a free flavored waffle. Your options: peanut butter, chocolate chip, blueberry or strawberry. No purchase necessary.
4. Free 2-liter of Pepsi Next. Spin the virtual wheel and win a free Pepsi Next. There are a limited number of freebies available each day so give it a shot.
5. Free music — lots of it. Amazon is offering 500 free music downloads right now! Search by genre, and listen to a sample clip before downloading. The catch: You might need to buy an external hard drive for all of it.
“It’s a good way to find some new songs,” Sanford says.
