Marble Slab Canada Freebie: BOGO Ice Cream Cones – July 20th Only

Posted by on July 19, 2014 at 10:00 PM

Marble Slab Canada Freebie: BOGO Ice Cream Cones   July 20th Only

What do you have planned tomorrow? Whatever it is, you better make sure to swing by a Marble Slab store as well because they’re hosting a BOGO event on all cones! Stop by any Marble Slab between 11am and 2pm on Sunday, July 20th 2014, to take advantage of a “buy one, get one free” deal on all ice cream cones.

Although it’s a BOGO deal, this promotion only extends to the regular size for the free cone. This means that you need to get either a regular or larger sized ice cream cone in order to get a second one of regular size for free.

Marble Slab’s promotion is actually in celebration of both Ice Cream Day and Ice Cream Month. As it turns out, President Reagan proclaimed the month of July to be national ice cream month with the third Sunday being national ice cream day and since Marble Slab was founded in Houston, Texas, this promotion makes total sense.

Although there are no Marble Slab stores where I live, I’m still super excited about Marble Slab’s offer for all of you who can enjoy it, especially since it features unlimited mix-ins. I’m a huge fan of Dairy Queen and have been getting a chocolate extreme blizzard a little too frequently this summer but the charge for extra ingredients is definitely a big turn-off.

At Marble Slab though, you can choose among 20 different mixins to add to your ice cream cone like bananas, brownie bits, Butterfinger, chocolate chips, cookie dough, Oreo cookies, sparkles, etc. Heck, you can even add strawberries!

Be sure to also snap a picture of your cone and hashtag it #MSCHappyHour to be entered to win 1 of 2 $10 gift cards. It may not be the best contest prize ever but it’s still better than nothing, especially since it’s a super easy one to fulfill!

Did you know that Bargainmoose’s forum is frequently updated with all of Marble Slab’s latest printable coupons? Be sure to sign up to get all of their coupons delivered straight to your inbox as soon as they are released. In fact, Marble Slab frequently makes coupons available for discounts on ice cream cones, ice cream cakes, smoothies and many others.

Moosers, what is your favourite flavour of ice cream at Marble Slab? And which mixins do you choose?

LastPass Premium Upgrade: Free For 6 Months

Posted by on July 19, 2014 at 5:00 PM

LastPass Premium Upgrade: Free For 6 Months

Back in Jessica’s money-saving article about 13 Free Apps to Help You Organize Your Life, she mentioned LastPass, an award-winning password manager tool. In the wake of the Heartbleed bug, LastPass are currently offering a free upgrade to their premium services for six months!

LastPass is a great little program used by many millions of people all over the world. Alas, I am not one of them! I actually use Roboform, a competitor of LastPass. But I have over 1500 passwords saved on there…

If you’re a new user for LastPass, you will get your first six months of LastPass premium for free. If you’re an existing user, this will actually upgrade you to their premium services for the next six months. You can use LastPass on many devices too, from your home PC to Android to Blackberry.

Now, we’re not naive shoppers here. LastPass offer a free service anyway, so offering six months for free of their premium services is obviously a cunning marketing plan. They’d like you to get used to the premium features and then after the six months finishes, you’ll opt to pay for their services. All the premium features are described here. LastPass premium actually costs $12 per year, so this freebie is worth $6. Even if you do find the premium features desirable… then $12 a year isn’t much for a great little program.

LastPass has a very handy password generation feature, which can generate some random passwords for you. For example, my Bargainmoose password is Er6OYA8uVK1n. No, it’s not! As if I would tell you that… :-p

How about you? How do you manage your passwords? Are you like my mum and have a few written down in a notebook beside your computer? If that sounds like you, then I seriously recommend you try out LastPass … for your own online safety and peace of mind.

Crazy Egg: Track & Analyze Your Website Free For 90 Days!

Posted by on July 16, 2014 at 6:30 PM

Crazy Egg: Track & Analyze Your Website Free For 90 Days!

Got a website? Then find out which links your visitors click the most and which parts they spend the most time on with a Crazy Egg’s visual map. Even better is that you can try it for free for as much as three months (90 days).

At our core, we’re all visual people. For those of you with websites of your own, Google Analytics is fine and dandy but analyzing the data can be time-consuming and misleading. This is where Crazy Egg comes in: this nifty software allows you to see the most interesting and clicked on parts of your website with a visual heatmap. There is a huge difference between what you think is attention-grabbing and what users actually end up focusing on! To learn more, be sure to check out how Crazy Egg differentiates from other analytic services.

I have seen and used different page trackers, but what I find cool about Crazy Egg is that on top of showing you a page’s most popular areas with the heatmap tool, it can also show you which parts are potentially broken (scrollmap tool), the number of clicks on a page (overlay tool) and a comprehensive overview of all the clicks (confetti tool).

If after 90 days, if you’re still interested in continuing to use Crazy Egg, then there are four plans to choose from:

  • Basic: $9/ month for 10 active pages
  • Standard: $19/ month for 20 active pages
  • Plus: $49/ month for 50 active pages
  • Pro: $99/ month for 100 active pages

All of the plans come with basic features like multiple domains as well as heatmap, scrollmap, confetti, overlay and list reports. The more you pay, the more features get added such as: priority phone support, advanced filtering, mobile heatmaps etc. Plus, whereas the basic and standards plans generate daily reports, the plus and the pro ones have daily reports available.

The way I see it is that Crazy Egg is definitely worth a try, especially since it’s free for three months! You can also use it to completely redesign your website in order to cater to the topics and products that specifically interest your visitors.

By the way, if you haven’t checked it out yet, be sure to have a look at our coupons page for a constantly updated resource of all discounts and promotions for almost near store you can think of: from Chapters Indigo, The Bay, Best Buy, Sears, and countless others!

Extreme Pita Canada: Free Purfresh Beverages Sampling Event July 17th

Posted by on July 16, 2014 at 6:00 PM

Extreme Pita Canada: Free Purfresh Beverages Sampling Event July 17th

There is a pretty cool freebie event happening tomorrow at one of my favourite places to buy lunch. Extreme Pita announced on their Facebook page that they will be giving free samples of the Purfresh Beverages tomorrow July 17th, from 2pm – 4pm.

Here is how this freebie deal event will work. Head in to one of the participating locations listed above on the link above, and between the times of 2pm and 4pm tomorrow, you will get to try out their Purfresh drinks with no purchase necessary. This is actually the first time they are doing this free sampling event so it should be great! It looks like they will have a few different samples of these drinks for us to try out.

I love Extreme Pita because it is fast food, but it is healthy fast food.  There is a huge difference between the two.  I get lunch or dinner quick and easy for my family there and not have to worry about feeding my family garbage, high fat, high sodium and high calories for their meal.  They are one of the only places that have the calories listed for you plain and simple so you know what you are getting without have to ask or look for it.

If you have yet to try the food at Extreme Pita, you are truly missing out.  My absolute favourite lunch would have to be their grilled chicken pita. A small is just 241 calories and the regular is still only 366 calories.  They are delicious and very filling.  You can tell them what ingredients you want in it as well.  This is perfect for a picky eater like me who is fairly specific on how I like my food.

One of the other bonuses to eating at Extreme Pita is that instead of regular greasy french fries with your pita, they have homemade pita chips.  The pita chips are so good! They come in a variety of flavours and are a must to add to your lunch if you have yet to try them.  My go-to flavour would be either the original or the chili and lime. When I go there with my husband or a friend, we each get a different kind with our meal and then share them so we get more than one flavour.

Amazon Student: 6-Months of Free 2-Day Shipping

Posted by on July 15, 2014 at 8:00 PM

Amazon Student: 6 Months of Free 2 Day Shipping

Amazon finally has brought the Amazon Student program to Canada. Students can sign up with a valid student email address to get FREE Two-Day Shipping with Amazon Prime on eligible purchases (with no minimum required) for six months and e-mail alerts for discounts and promotions.

After the six months of free two-day shipping from Amazon Canada, your Student Prime account will automatically renew unless you choose to unsubscribe. However, instead of paying the full price of $79 per year, students will only pay $39 per year for Amazon Prime. However, once you graduate (or at the end of four years), your subscription will automatically renew to the full prime cost of $79 unless you choose to unsubscribe. To sign up for your free six-months of Amazon Student Prime, you will need to:

  • have an Amazon Canada account
  • be a college, university or CEGEP student enrolled in at least one course
  • be able to provide proof of enrollment if requested
  • have a valid college, university, or CEGEP email address (and access to that account)

I am officially still a student, as I do not graduate until November, so I signed up for this offer with my student email address. It was very simple. I just needed to have access to my email address to confirm my subscription. I actually have my student email forwarded to my regular email address and I was able to confirm my account by clicking through the link in the forwarded email.

This offer is available across the country, but it is done slightly different for residents of Quebec. If you are schooling in Quebec, you can sign up for Amazon Student and you will receive an 18-month membership with the first 6 months at no charge. They will not bill your credit card until the first six months are over, and you can cancel at any time.

For students, this is thrilling. I have purchased many of my textbooks on Amazon.ca in the past when two-day shipping would have been super handy. I also love books, my husband loves movies, and together we place a purchase or two at Amazon.ca about once or twice a month. Two-day shipping is certainly going to lessen the time we have to wait between ordering and receiving. I just need to mark down in my calendar what date I should be cancelling my subscription so it does not auto-renew.

David’s Tea Canada: Free Tea For Kids On Sunday!

Posted by on July 12, 2014 at 8:00 AM

Davids Tea Canada: Free Tea For Kids On Sunday!

Head to a David’s Tea store this Sunday and your kids can get their tea on! All kids under 12 get a free tea. Yippee!

I’ve been trying to get my kids to drink tea for a while now. They guzzle the juice I buy them, which is full of sugar and pretty much nothing else, even though I buy the organic, 100% fruit juice. It gets expensive and I worry about their teeth and all the extra sugar they really don’t need. Tea, on the other hand is healthy and while not completely inexpensive, probably cheaper than juice. They love Nestea iced tea, which is of course full of sugar, so I didn’t think the switch would be this hard. But, I think taking them to David’s Tea this week, where they’ll be served a free tea might make them open their minds a little. And, if they try it and don’t want it, yay, free tea for me!

This isn’t just any tea, either. With flavours like magic dragon, cotton candy, root beer float and cherry snocone, the kids are bound to love them!

I noticed this really cute kids’ iced tea mug, which, if your kids happen to love the tea they try, you could get to make drinking tea even cooler for them. I love the little lemon guy on the side as it is childish, but mature enough that my older kids would use this cup.

Imagine days of sitting on your porch swing, drinking iced tea with your kids. I can’t wait for Sunday!

Dealfind Canada: Free Photo Book from Photobook Canada ($24 Value)

Posted by on July 11, 2014 at 10:30 PM

Dealfind Canada: Free Photo Book from Photobook Canada ($24 Value)

Hello fantastic deal how I do love you! Receive a FREE 6×6 inch Mini Square Softcover photo book with 40 pages in it from Photobook Canada when you pick up this voucher for $0 from Dealfind Canada. This offer is worth $24 and includes tax.

You will only need to pay for shipping when you order your photo book from Photobook Canada. That means if you get this voucher and never use it, then you have not lost any money. If you get the free voucher and do use it, then you are saving $24 and only paying $4.99 for shipping. I am totally getting one of these as a gift for a friend of mine.

Now, you do have the option to upgrade your free voucher to a paid voucher at a very steep discount. Here are the upgrade options:

  • FREE 6×6 inch Mini Square Softcover ($24 Value)
  • $10 for an 8×11 inch Medium Portrait Softcover ($40 Value).
  • $15 for an 8×11 inch Medium Portrait Imagewrap Hardcover  ($60 Value).
  • $20 for an 11×8.5 inch Medium Landscape Imagewrap Hardcover ($70 Value).
  • $30 for an 15×11 inch Large Landscape Imagewrap Hardcover($105 Value).

All these books only include 40 pages. If you upgrade your book size, then shipping costs will naturally go up. However, Photobook Canada has always had very reasonable shipping charges so don’t worry about them. Personally, I am sticking with the free photo book.

There is a limit of one free book voucher per person. You have from July 23, 2014 to January 27, 2015 to redeem your vouchers, which is plenty of time to create your photographic masterpiece.

I am pretty stoked about this. Unfortunately, the redemption date does not start until the 23rd or else I would make up a photo book for my friend Robert as his birthday is on July 27th. Maybe I will send it as a belated birthday gift or deliver it in person when I see him again in November. It is hard being away from friends for a long period without being able to see each other, so picture books are a nice way of still being with a person when you cannot be physically present.

Pick up this great little freebie while quantities last. Over 5,500 vouchers have already been claimed and I do not know if there is a limited quantity. Supposedly, there is still one week left of this deal.

What is your book theme going to be and whom are you going to send it to?

Free Slurpee @ 7-Eleven!

Posted by on July 10, 2014 at 1:30 PM

Free Slurpee @ 7 Eleven!

To celebrate their birthday, 7-Eleven is offering a free small Slurpee to the first 1500 guests at each store. This offer is available between 11am and 7pm on July 11th (tomorrow!).

If the hot, humid weather is getting you down, there is no better way to cool off than a refreshing Slurpee from 7-Eleven.  I know my kids and I will be waiting outside for our freebies!  To find the 7-Eleven location nearest you, click here.  You may find flavours like Mountain Dew White Out, Brisk Lemonade, or Crush Cherries n’ Cream.  Or if you’re an adventurer like me, you’ll make a little Slurpee swamp water with a mix of a few different flavours!  Is there anything better in the summer than using a straw with a scoop on the end to suck up fun-flavoured frozen sugar water?  I think not.

Did you know that the first Slurpee poured in Canada was in 1969?  Another little known fact is that Winnipeg is the Slurpee capital of the world.  I have to wonder if they suffer from an above average incidence of brain freeze.

But wait, there’s more!  Snap a selfie of you and your pals enjoying your delicious free Slurpees and you could win cool prizes!  7-Eleven is running a selfie contest to win a grand prize of 711 Slurpee coupons ($1280.00 value) for the Largest Group Selfie photo submission and three $250 Slurpee/7-Eleven Gift Cards, plus Slurpee Surprise Pack for Most Original or Creative Group Selfie photo submission.  The entry deadline is July 13th 2014 at 11:59:59 p.m. Eastern time.  Contest runs from July 11th 2014 to July 13th 2014.  Photos must be submitted on the Slurpee Facebook Page.  All the rules and regulations can be found at www.slurpee.ca/elevenday/.  I enjoy that my desire to take a lot of random selfies could result in prizes!

Slurpee.ca also offers a free download of their new Mobile App, which gives you access to weekly coupons and other exclusive savings, allowing you to enjoy 7-Eleven discounts even after this awesome giveaway is over.  This week when you download the App, you can get a thank you coupon for a free Big Gulp.  These guys really care about your hydration needs.

Stay cool.  Take a selfie.  Win prizes.  This is the stuff that summer is all about.

Trend Trunk Canada: Free Promotional Gift Cards

Posted by on July 8, 2014 at 10:30 PM

Trend Trunk Canada: Free Promotional Gift Cards
If you have never had a promotional Trend Trunk card before, then scoot your bottom over to Trend Trunk Canada and enter your email in the pop-up offering free promotional gift cards. They are giving out promotional gift cards to everyone who enters their email address.

I cannot get another one because I claimed mine when they ran this promotion about a year and a half ago. However, the gift cards start at $5 and can go all the way up to $250 if you are good friends with a rabbit’s foot and a horseshoe. You are guaranteed $5 to spend on Trend Trunk, which is like throwing money at me and telling me to go spend it on clothing, shoes, or purses. You do not need to tell me twice!

Trend Trunk is one of my favourite places to buy and sell clothing. I love how I can pick up clothing I love for way cheaper than I could elsewhere just because it has been worn a few times or has sat in someone else’s closet for a year. Let me share with you a few things on my lust list right now.

This Tribal Skirt is made in Bulgaria, and looks to be in very good used condition. I like the classic checkered plaid and am pleased that it is made of 35% wool. It would make a fantastic fall/winter skirt and since the owner has given the dimensions, I know it would fit me almost perfectly. It also costs only $14 including shipping. What a steal!

You will never find me far from designer goods. This Burberry Purse in pink nova check coated canvas is a little dream at only $207 including shipping, when it originally cost $620. I love the white leather accents. I also have my eye on these Michael Kors fashionable winter boots (with heels). I have such a love affair with plaid that these babies are warming my heart just looking at them. Originally $160, they are just $53 including shipping and look to be in good condition.

Trend Trunk is a mecca of deals to begin with, so the free gift card is just some really great icing on this yummy deals cake. If you get one of the higher value gift cards, drop us a comment below! One promotional gift card per account or email address.

MyMemories: Free Downloadable Digital Scrap-booking Kits

Posted by on July 8, 2014 at 9:30 PM

MyMemories: Free Downloadable Digital Scrap booking Kits

My Memories is a website devoted to digital scrapbooking. They sell both the software, and then various scrap booking kits and photo books. They also have the most amazing section of free downloadable digital scrap booking kits – absolutely free – for anyone to use.

You will need to create a free account on the My Memories website in order to get the free kits. However, no purchase is necessary. These Album and Photobook templates are intended for installation in the My Memories Suite software, which they make and sell. However, the General download will still contain all of the digital paper and page element files and template pages in a flat jpeg format so that you can recreate the template. The General use installer will let you use all their beautiful elements in programs like Adobe Photoshop, Photoshop Elements, Paint Shop Pro, etc. Do note that the layered pre-built pages are not available in the general download, only in the version for the MyMemories Suite.

There are many free scrap-booking kits to choose from: 355 to be exact. I am a big fan of Steampunk esthetic so this Steampunk Ruin Quick Page Free is appealing to me. It is a very small freebie though with only one page element.

I also like this Happy To Be Me-Kit, which is far more extensive than the quick page above. It includes 5 digital papers, 22 page elements, and 62 monogram characters. The colour pallet of rose pink, powder blue, and darker blue is really pretty.

My Memories makes it easy to find other work by your favourite scrapbook template designers. Just scroll to the bottom and you will see other paid and free kits they have designed.

If you want to pick up the My Memories Suite software for full compatibility, now is not a bad time. I found coupon code STMMMS3764, which gives you $10 off the software. All prices are in USD. I have no idea when that coupon expires, so give us a shout if it stops working for some reason.

I thought this was a fun little freebie opportunity for anyone who loves digital scrap-booking. While the full benefits of each kit require the suite, you can still use most all the elements with whatever software you currently use for your projects. This is a great way to expand your current graphics collection.

P.S. Their website has been really slow for me. It might require an extra dose of patience to get your freebies.

Colgate Sensitive Pro-Relief Toothpaste Freebie!

Posted by on July 8, 2014 at 3:30 PM

Colgate Sensitive Pro Relief Toothpaste Freebie!

Call me weird but I get a total rush when I get freebies!  It doesn’t even matter what type of freebie I get sometimes, I just love them.  It is even better when I get a freebie that I will use or enjoy and this is what you can do right now. For a limited time only, you can get a free Colgate Sensitive Pro-Relief toothpaste sample.

To get your free sample of the Colgate Sensitive Pro-Relief toothpaste, click on the link above and fill in your mail address info.  You will have to answer three very quick questions about how sensitive your teeth are and what brand of toothpaste you use now and then you will get your free sample mailed to you.  I just did it and the entire thing took me about one minute to complete from beginning to end which is not bad at all.

Once you fill out the short survey, you will receive a free 22 ml tube of the all new Colgate Sensitive Pro Relief Toothpaste from Colgate Canada. I love these size of samples because they are the perfect size to take on a carry-on bag for travel, or camping for a weekend with my family. This way, you cut down on your toiletries when you travel and you don’t waste anything.

You will be able to request one sample per household and once you fill out the three question survey, it will take 4-6 weeks to be delivered to your mailbox. They even give you a few tricks and tips for sensitive teeth once your survey is filled out which is a nice little bonus.

Mac’s Canada Convenience Store Coupon: Printable Free Big Foot Candy Bag

Macs Canada Convenience Store Coupon: Printable Free Big Foot Candy Bag

I am a huge candy nut so this freebie really stuck out to me.  Head into your local Ontario Mac’s Convenience Store with this printable coupon between July 7th until July 13th, and get your free bag of Big Foot Original candy with no purchase necessary.

You will be able to use one coupon per person and it will only be valid for the Mac’s Convenience Stores in Ontario starting on Monday morning. I wish it was valid here in Alberta, because the Big Foot candy is one of my favourites! Why is it that all of the great printable coupons tend to be for Ontario? It seems like they get all of the best freebies.

The Big Foot candy bag you will get is the 64g Big Foot Original bag.  It is valued at $1.49 and there is no purchase required.

If you haven’t tried this candy before, it has a cherry flavour that is very similar to swedish berries and they almost melt in your mouth. I remember having these as a child and I could never get enough of them.  There are different versions of them now, with some that are hot to taste, which are also delicious.  As a nice little bonus, they are peanut free and come from a peanut free plant, which means they are good for all people with allergies.

You will find this Mac’s Convenience Store coupon posted on the Bargainmoose coupon forum.

Free eBook of your choice from Entitle Books!

Posted by on July 5, 2014 at 8:00 AM

Free eBook of your choice from Entitle Books!

Entitle Books hasn’t yet been mentioned on Bargainmoose, but I wanted to tell you about their free trial offer in which you can download a free eBook, no strings attached!

In the free seven day trial, you are entitled to download one eBook for free, and it’s yours forever. You can download it to your device (tablet or phone, etc.) and it’s stored there. In order to sign up to the free seven day trial you have to enter your credit card details. If you do not cancel within seven days, you will move on to the subscription plan which costs $9.99 per month. If you only want to get the free book, remember to cancel within seven days.

Here are a few examples of the eBooks you can choose from, across some different genres:

Best Sellers & New Releases

  • Stephen Hunter – Sniper’s Honor
  • Gail McHugh – Pulse
  • Steve Jobs autobiography

Sci Fi / Fantasy

  • Michael Crichton – Next
  • Robin Hobb – Dragon Haven
  • Jack McDevitt – Infinity Beach

Classics

  • George Orwell – Animal Farm
  • Joseph Heller – Catch 22
  • Gary Paulsen Hatchet – (I remember reading this as a teenager, it’s good)

I had a browse of the selection of eBooks on Entitlebooks.com and I’ll admit, it’s not huge. There are more than 200,000 books to choose from and that’s a large number of books, but that’s across many genres and types. I looked in the sci-fi and fantasy section which I would be very au fait with, and while there were a number of good titles, the selection wasn’t amazing – only 32 books!

Even so, this is a very handy offer for one free eBook. I’ve downloaded a big juicy Stephen King book and I’m going to be reading it on my iPad when travelling for my vacation next week.

After the free trial on Entitle Books, you’re subscribed to their monthly plan, any two books for $9.99 per month. To be honest, that’s actually still a very good price – being able to download two full size eBooks for only $5 each. And the fact that you can cancel the plan at any time and keep the books is a real bonus. I am going to read this Stephen King book, see how much I like the actual app, and then I will be considering going on to the monthly plan for a few months and saving a few more books from their library.

Costco Canada Freebie: 2 Free General Admission Movie Tickets With Gold Star Or Executive New Membership

Costco Canada Freebie: 2 Free General Admission Movie Tickets With Gold Star Or Executive New Membership

Here at Bargainmoose, we frequently write about amazing deals at Costco and if you’re not a member yet, then what are you waiting for? Costco has an awesome sign-up bonus right now: if you sign up right now, then you can use one of the following Costco promo codes to also receive 2 general admission movie tickets for absolutely free.

Click here to get the Gold Star Membership @ Costco.ca now

  • Coupon Code: GSWEB66
  • Discount: 2 free general admission movie tickets
  • Expiry: 31st August 2014

Click here to get the Executive Membership @ Costco.ca now

  • Coupon Code: EXEC76
  • Discount: 2 free general admission movie tickets
  • Expiry: 31st August 2014

While the Gold Star membership is $55 and grants you basic access to Costco’s membership, the Executive one is $110 and includes additional perks like a 2% annual reward (up to $750) and discounts on car rentals, credit card processing etc. The two general admission movie tickets will be sent by mail and even better is that they will both be eligible for SCENE points.

Not to be biased or anything but I’m a huge Costco fan and enjoy visiting their warehouse every week to take advantage of the various deals. Just last week, I bought a fantastic 8-pc colourful knife set for only $19.99! In fact, I just wrote about a great deal on $130 off a Graco 5-pc soho squares set that is now on sale for just $590 (reg. $720) and which could up to over $900 if the items were to be individually purchases elsewhere! The great part about shopping online at Costco is that shipping and handling are also absolutely free, unlike other stores, which charge outrageous shipping fees for big ticket items.

If you’re a huge movie buff, then you should also know that Costco has a variety of movie ticket packages such as the Cineplex Night Out movie package for just $24.99. It comes with 2 general admission tickets, 2 regular soft drinks and 1 regular popcorn.

Unfortunately, this freebie is only valid for new memberships and can’t be used on renewals; otherwise I would have definitely already redeemed it on the Transformers: Age of Extinction movie (pictured on the image above).

Which movie are you most looking forward to see in theatres this summer?

Home Depot Free Workshops for July

Posted by on June 30, 2014 at 8:30 AM

Home Depot Free Workshops for July

Tomorrow marks the first day of the month of July and Home Depot has yet again outdone themselves and they have some great free July workshops this month.  Each of the workshops will be between 1-2 hours in length and you can sign up for free to have fun and learn at the same time.  These free workshops do fill up fast so it is better to sign up sooner rather than later.

This month, there are four different workshops to check out that are all absolutely free.  Three of them are on the weekends but one one of them is on a Wednesday night.  This is perfect for families like mine that usually head out camping on the weekends in the summer.  You can still do a workshop midweek for free so you won’t miss out.

Build a Bug House July 12th
