1. I got a free box of Cinnamon Toast Crunch
Mr. FG alerted me to the million-box giveaway General Mills was doing.
Since he likes that cereal (the girls don’t really eat cereal at all), I picked up a box, scanned my receipt, and got the $5.30 credit to my PayPal account within 24 hours.
It was a super easy process, so if you like this cereal, go get your free box.
2. I submitted an iPhone claim
My old SE, which Zoe is now using, qualified for the iPhone battery slow down settlement, so I submitted my information.
Hopefully $25 will be hitting my bank account soon.
Click here to visit the iPhone claim website to see if your phone qualifies; the submission process is really easy and $25 is $25.
(Hat tip to both WilliamB and Mr. FG for alerting me to this claim.)
3. I bought $3.29 mums at Aldi
Of course, mums are not exactly a necessity but geez, these were only $3.29!
I’m not one to invest much in non-perennial plants, but even I couldn’t resist these.
4. I got multiple discounts on Claritin
Sonia’s been have some allergy issues (the shots she’s getting only cover her spring allergies), so she needed some non-drowsy meds.
- picked a container with “10 free” tablets
- got it on sale for $19.99 ($5 off)
- used a $4 Claritin coupon in the CVS app
- used my $10 CVS Carepass reward (pay $5, get a $10 credit)
So, I paid $6 plus the $5 I paid for the Carepass, for a total of $11. Which is much better than the original price of $24.99.
5. I got a discounted haircut
I haven’t gotten a hair trim for about a year (!) and it was starting to show on my ends.
So, when HairCuttery sent me a $3 “happy hour” discount, I made an appointment.
(Apparently they are slow after 5 pm, so appointments made after 5 got a discount.)
I was the only customer there, and I was in and out in 15 minutes. Sweet!
The ends of my hair are not nearly as straggly now, and I am very happy.
Also, I am probably good to go for another year now, knowing me and my lazy hair habits.
Bonus item: I buzzed Zoe’s undercut again. Even cheaper than going to HairCuttery with a discount.
