One of the easiest ways to save money is by using coupons and freebies to make your money go further.
And one of the easiest ways to get those coupons and freebies is to sign up for e-mail and mailing lists.
Here is my list of the top mailing lists to be on if you want to get free stuff:
VocalPoint. VocalPoint is a community of women who offer their feedback on a variety of P&G products. The freebies that I’ve gotten from VocalPoint have been wonderful – free full-size bottles of shampoo, coupons for free boxes of cereal, and much more. When you get an e-mail saying a sample or “Try and Tell” is available – don’t delay! Their freebies usually disappear fast.
Kashi. Seven Whole Grains on a Mission… Lots of great samples in your mailbox including cereal, cookies, granola bars, and more! Each sample usually comes with a great coupon, too.
Eat Better America. This is a division of General Mills and is a great source for some excellent coupons and recipes.
Right@Home. SC Johnson offers regular prize packs to its e-mail list. You won’t always get everything you sign up for, but you will get something if you keep trying. I’ve gotten Ziploc storage containers, Glade candles, Scrubbing Bubble Toilet Gels and more.
MamboSprouts. By e-mail and by snail mail – this is a great resource for coupons for organic products.
Kraft First Taste. Wonderful freebies from Kraft! In return for coupons for free products (I’ve received Maxwell House, Digiorno 200 calorie pizzas, Jello Mousse Tempations, and many, many others), they’ll ask you to share your opinions on the products. It’s very easy and well worth the time.
SheSpeaks. SheSpeaks offers women the opportunity to influence the development and marketing of products. You’ll get the opportunity to try products for free in return for your feedback. They also encourage you to spread the word about products you like. I’ve gotten the chance to try a variety of food products, beauty items, and more.
