Pei Wei Freebie

Pei Wei’s marketing folks alerted me that on Thursday, October 28 from 12PM-1PM, Pei Wei will give free Grilled Thai Sausage with a pineapple fried rice to the first 250 people to arrive at the secret Dallas location.

Check out their Facebook and/or Twitter page Thursday morning to get the location details.

Walgreens: Free EOS lip balm after Register Reward

There are a few free items (after Register Rewards) at Walgreens this week, but the EOS lip balm caught my eye so I wanted to mention it.

I received a free EOS lip balm by mail during a promotion earlier this year or maybe it was last year. It was their mint version and I loved it!

I am going to try to get the Summer Fruit variety using the Register Rewards I received last week for Swiffer and Clorox Wipes Register Reward purchases.

Check out the EOS lip balm and other Register Rewards promotions for this week at

Office Depot – Free after Worklife Rewards Items

Starting today through October 9, you can get several items, including Keurig K-Cups and Energizer AA or AAA batteries for free after Office Depot Worklife Rewards!

I love this deal because I always need printer ink so this is like buying the printer ink and getting coffee and batteries for free!

In addition to Keurig K-Cups and Energizer AA and AAA batteries, the promotion includes notepads, a 17 inch laptop case (looks like the one I have, which I love!), stackable file totes and 1 inch ring binders.

If you plan to do this deal, here are some things to think about before you get started:

– You must have an Office Depot Worklife Rewards number, which you can get for free. Sign up here. You will be assigned a number immediately.

– If you order $50 or more, you will get free, next business day delivery.

– If you order $100 or more, use one of the $20 off coupons found at

– There is a limit of one Office Depot Worklife Rewards account per household or business.

I ordered eight boxes of Keurig k-cups and two packs of Energizer batteries for $84.88 after using a $20 off $100 coupon code on I also opted to use to get the 500 points to get me closer to another $50 Macy’s gift card so I can buy the Vitamix. I will get my money back from my purchase in the form of a Rewards card that I will have 90 days to spend at Office Depot (likely on printer ink).
