Short Break

I’m taking a short break from blogging, but will return by Monday. Today was the last day of school for my preschooler. I can’t believe she’s off to kindergarten next year. But instead of going to school today, we headed to Shreveport for the annual Jambalaya Jubilee juvenile arthritis camp and conference. A news crew filmed me at one point, so if you live in Shreveport and saw the news, you may have seen me. 🙂

Between the end of school festival and class party, work and getting ready for this weekend trip, I have neglected my blog. I have also scaled way back on shopping because of my stockpile of food. I have only needed fresh produce, milk, bread and occasionally meat, but the pantry is starting to become empty so I’ll be back out looking for grocery deals soon.

I mentioned a while back that I am working on something that will make coupon organization and usage a little easier. I am still working on that. Hopefully a portion of it will be available this summer!

Instant Win Games

If you’ve read this far, then I want to share two instant win games I won this week. 2-4AM is a good time to try your luck at instant win games, so since I’ve been up already trying to get some work done, I’ve played a few games. Here are the two I won:

Honey Nut Cheerios Sweet Rewards Giveaway – you could win a cash prize every 10 minutes! I won $5 on my first try. Use code: k30fr h4f3h 7720 unless you have a cereal code already. This is the code I used to win. I believe it’s the generic code you get if you don’t have one from a product package.

Restaurant Style Salads from Home – Dole, Fresh Gourmet, Marie’s Dressing and Athenos Cheese have gotten together to hold this instant win game. It took several attempts for me to win a free salad. Not sure it’s entirely worth it given how long it took, but worth a few tries if you like salad.

Free DVD at redbox – 6/1 only

For those of you who took advantage of the weekly free DVDs at redbox, you probably heard that redbox ended that promotion last month. They’re now doing one promo code per month through the summer. Here’s the June promo code for a free redbox rental:

FM63H7

It’s good until midnight Central time on June 1 only. Make sure you select the ‘rent with promo code’ box before you enter any credit card information at check out. It’s at the bottom of the screen and is easy to miss if you’re doing this for the first time.

Instant Win Game – Ice Age Dawn of the Dinosaurs Movie Tickets


I went to Tom Thumb’s Web site to see this week’s grocery ad and noticed an instant win game for two tickets to see Ice Age Dawn of the Dinosaurs. I decided to play, and I won! The game runs from 5/26 – 6/30/2009, and you’ll be entered to win a grand prize trip to Denver, Colorado.

You can play on any of the Safeway sites (it should be the first graphic on the homepage, but it rotates with other promos so click quickly!):
www.safeway.com
www.vons.com
www.pavilions.com
www.randalls.com
www.tomthumb.com
www.genuardis.com
www.dominicks.com
www.carrsqc.com

According to the rules, there are three games you can play to try to win. I won on the first game (find acorns under snow), so I’m not sure what the others are. They’re giving away 1000 pairs of tickets, which are redeemable at a participating Fandango theater. You must live in one of these states to play: AK, AZ, CA, CO, DC, DE, HI, ID, IL, MD, MT, NE, NJ, NM, NV, OR, PA, SD, TX, VA, WA, WY, VA.

Read the Official Rules.

Good luck!

Oh – because I got distracted with the game, I’ll do the coupon match-ups on Wednesday. A quick glance at the ad didn’t reveal any spectacular deals unless you want meat. Looks like there are several options for $1.00/lb.
