In-Stores May 3rd: LEGO Star Wars Wookiee Gunship Make & Take Event FREE @ Toys R Us Canada

Posted by on May 2, 2015 at 5:00 PM

In Stores May 3rd: LEGO Star Wars Wookiee Gunship Make & Take Event FREE @ Toys R Us Canada

Freebie time! On Sunday, May 3rd, Toys R Us is hosting a LEGO Star Wars Wookiee gunship make and take event starting at 11am until 1pm. This event is in-stores only.

Toys R Us’ description of this event is actually slightly confusing because in the title, they state: “May The 4th Be With You!” but it’s actually being held on May 3rd. So don’t miss it by thinking it’s Monday when it’s actually this Sunday.

For those of you who don’t know, the reason they incorporated “May The 4th Be With You” into the promotion of this event is because May 4th is the official Star Wars holiday. Don’t expect to get a day off work but it’s still a cool tidbit to know, especially if there’s a huge a Star Wars fan at your office. In case you’re wondering why May 4th was selected as the official date, it’s because of the famous: “May The Force Be With You” slogan.

With regards to Toys R Us’ event, it’s for children ages from 4 to 14 years. Children will be showed how to make a LEGO Star Wars Wookiee gunship, which they will then be allowed to take home with them — yay freebie!

Given that this event is scheduled from 11am until 1pm, it would be my assumption that you could arrive any time within that time frame for your child to learn how to make the Wookiee gunship, especially since only one model is being given per child and it’s only while quantities last. Calling your local Toys R Us store to confirm the details would definitely be a good idea, especially to make sure that it is indeed being held at your store before pumping up your child (or children) for it), especially if you can’t get there in time for the beginning of the event. This could definitely make for a great outing, especially if you invite your child’s friends.

Keep in mind that this event won’t be held at Toys r Us Cedarbrae Mall and Express stores.

Want a Free Big Gulp Drink? Download the 7-Eleven Canada App Now!

Posted by on May 1, 2015 at 3:30 PM

Want a Free Big Gulp Drink? Download the 7 Eleven Canada App Now!

If you are passing by a 7-Eleven Canada store today, then don’t miss this opportunity for their Free Friday offer. Today only,  you can redeem a free Big Gulp beverage of any size through the 7-Eleven mobile app at your closest 7-Eleven location.

The Big Gulp from 7-Eleven is great if you are super thirsty. It is even better that today you can get it for free by simply downloading the 7-Eleven Canada mobile app. The 7-Eleven app is available through the App Store and Google Play on both Apple and Android devices. It will take just a moment to download the app, and in exchange you will be able to redeem this freebie. Personally, I leave the app on my phone so I can redeem future freebie offers from 7-Eleven Canada without the wait.

Today’s 7-Eleven Canada Free Day Friday offer will allow you to head into your local store and pick up a free Big Gulp beverage, while supplies last. From previous experience, I have found that my local 7-Eleven Canada store does not run out of their freebie Friday offers quickly, so hopefully you won’t be left disappointed.

The Big Gulp is great except it never fits in the cup holder of my car. 7-Eleven Canada even offers refillable cups or mugs, but they are not included in this offer. You will find many interesting flavours, hopefully you love it. You can even mix as many flavours into one cup as you like, for a unique taste.

There are also other offers available through the 7-Eleven Canada app. These offers will vary depending on your location, but usually you can find offers like buy 1 get 1 free and more. To see if your local 7-Eleven Canada has your desired offer, just click the savings. You will then be directed to your local 7-Eleven store.

Printable Coupon for FREE Item @ Bath & Body Works ($7.50 Value)

Posted by on April 29, 2015 at 1:00 PM

Printable Coupon for FREE Item @ Bath & Body Works ($7.50 Value)

Bath & Body Works has a stellar printable coupon out right now for a free item – no purchase required! Your free item can have a retail value up to $7.50.

Bath & Body Works rarely gives out printable coupons with no purchase – so this is a fantastic freebie. Usually, their coupons are for a free item with $15 purchase or a percentage off $30 worth of goods. I think this coupon is my favourite.

This coupon is valid NOW – so print it off and hurry in to your local store. This offer is so good that I actually had to check whether we had a Bath & Body Works in my city. Indeed they do, in the Woodgrove Centre Mall. I do not use many of their products myself as i have super sensitive skin, but Mother’s day is coming up and I want my mother to feel special. Thus, I am going to print off this coupon and pick up up a small gift to take home with me in May.

The coupon excludes outlet clearance items, but is valid on anything else that has a retail value of $7.50 or less. I know you can pick up some nice smelling soap and some mini bottles of body lotion for this price. You may even be able to get some foaming hand soap as well. I have not been into a Bath & Body Works for ages.

I highly recommend signing up for the Bath & Body Works newsletter so these coupons are delivered directly to your inbox. The deal requires you produce the original coupon code and some stores will demand to see the original email or ask for your email address. This is pretty rare, but does happen on occasion. It is really at the store’s discretion and we can do nothing about that.

I do hope you enjoy this sweet freebie. Drop me a line in the comments below to let me know what you bought! The last time I posted a Bath & Body Works deal, Mooser Sandy picked up the Forever Red Fine Fragrance Mist (travel size). She highly recommends that scent.

Oh goody, free beauty products to try!  I love when I can get free samples, it pushes me to add new ideas to my beauty routine without plunking down any extra cash. I do not often pick up random products off the shelf, but I have been experimenting with my moisture routine on my face lately as the weather changes so this is good timing.

This latest sample from Garnier Canada is a sample from the new Miracle Cream line. According to the website, there are actually two products in this line, the Miracle Sleeping Cream Night Cream and the Ultra-Lift Miracle Sleeping Cream Eye Cream. The sample will be the Miracle Sleeping Cream Night Cream according to the website. After you put in your contact information, a note pops up that the sample should arrive in four to six weeks. Garnier also gives you three printable coupons through a free Websaver Canada account. The coupons include $1 off Garnier Nutrisse hair dye, $2 off the Garnier Fructis line and $2 off the Garnier Clean line.

The Miracle Sleeping Cream Night Cream is designed to help repair your skin  overnight. This cream combines the moisture of a face cream with a formula that gives your skin a lift similar to when you give yourself a facial. The first time you use the product your skin should feel very soft and subtle. With regular use, you should start to your skin look brighter and fresher. Of course things like sleep and drinking plenty of water are important also for healthy skin. Combine your other healthy habits with this cream to give your skin an extra boost. The skin under and around your eyes particularly is very delicate, but a good moisturizing routine can help you to reduce lines and look healthier.

I am also happy to see this sample is in the same category as their fantastic under eye rollers that I use almost every day for the dark circles under my eyes. I hope this new night cream combined with my daily use of the eye-rollers will give me even more improvement. I am starting to see wrinkle lines on my forehead and around my eyes that were not there a few years ago. Grab your freebie now before someone else swipes them up!

Free Comic Book Day Across Canada (2nd May)

Posted by on April 26, 2015 at 11:25 PM

Free Comic Book Day Across Canada (2nd May)

Do you know what comes on the first Saturday every May? If you love comic books, then you already know the answer to that question, but just as a reminder – the 2nd of May is Free Comic Book Day across Canada! So head into your local comic book store on Free Comic Book Day and treat yourself to a free comic.

Comic book stores big and small across North America participate in Free Comic Book Day on the first Saturday every May. There is no purchase necessary to claim your free comic book, so this is truly a freebie to snag. However, stores get to decide which comic books to give away for free. While this event is free for everybody, it is not a “free-for-all” in the selection process. The past two years there have been between 44 and 57 different free comics available, so I am sure you will be able to choose something.

Depending on which store you visit on the 2nd of May, you can choose up to 10 free comic books. That means you can truly reap the benefits of the selection available. This is a great event for the young and old. Anyone can enjoy a good comic book. There are previews of the available comic books available on the Free Comic Book Day website, so take a quick gander to see what is available for you this Free Comic Book Day 2015.

Some of the comic books included are:

  • Dark Circle Comics # 1
  • Spongebob Freestyle Funnies
  • Transformers Robots in Disguise # 0
  • Terrible Lizard # 1
  • The Tick
  • TMNT Prelude to Vengeance
  • Worlds of Aspen
  • and much more

With a total of 50 different comics to choose from for free this year, you are bound to find something. I may even pick up a couple for my son to read since the pages are so colourful and interesting in comics. Of course each store may have different hours of operation, and the free comics are available on a first-come first-serve basis, so be sure to call ahead to avoid any disappointment.

Get A Free Sample Of Claritin Non-Drowsy Tablets *BUMP*

Posted by on April 25, 2015 at 2:35 PM

Get A Free Sample Of Claritin Non Drowsy Tablets *BUMP*

*BUMP! Claritin is offering a brand new free sample of their non-drowsy product, so gets yours now before it’s too late! All you need to do is like Claritin on Facebook to claim your freebie.

Every so often, Claritin makes free trial sizes of its popular product available but only for a limited time. This freebie is set to expire a couple of days after the Black Friday week-end, so make sure not to miss it, especially since it could also end beforehand if all the samples are claimed. However, there is no way of knowing if the Claritin samples are almost out of stock or not, so make sure to claim yours as soon as possible.

I’m one of the lucky ones who doesn’t suffer from allergies but my hubby non-stop coughs, sneezes and blows his nose. Of course, it doesn’t help that he’s allergic to cats and we have two of those troublemakers but in any case, I can tell you that Claritin helps his right away. It’s best if you take it on a daily basis, so whether you have already tried their products in the past or are looking to give it a try for the first time, this sample pack is sure to help budget-wise at least a little bit.

A couple of weeks ago, my hubby had particularly bad symptoms and I rushed to get him Claritin from the pharmacy. I kid you not but not even 20 minutes later, he was back to normal. I’m sure it depends on each person but it’s still worth a shot if your allergy symptoms are bad.

Keep in mind that this Claritin freebie is for a free pack of non-drowsy tablets of 10mg.

Do you live in Quebec? Although you won’t be able to claim a free trial size of Claritin, you can, however, get a printable coupon for $3 off the purchase of 20 tablets or more. In many ways, this is perhaps even better than the freebie because rather than waiting for your sample pack to arrive, you can print the Claritin printable coupon and immediately head over to a pharmacy near you. A 20-tablet Claritin pack usually retails for about $15, so with a $3 rebate, this amounts to about a 20% discount.

FREE Kiehl’s Starter Kit for Earth Week

Posted by on April 23, 2015 at 12:30 PM

FREE Kiehls Starter Kit for Earth Week

In honour of Earth Week, take in the flowing Facebook voucher and ANY brand of empty cosmetics jar to your local Kiehl’s store. In exchange, you will receive a free environmentally friendly Kiehl’s Starter Kit.

Click through the link above to see this offer on Facebook. Then, click ‘claim offer’ and the offer will be sent to the email address associated with your Facebook account. When you visit the Kiehl’s store, you will need to show them the email.

I am super jealous of all you Moosers that have a Kiehl’s in your city. Unfortunately, Nanaimo does not have a Kiehl’s or else I would be down there this minute with an empty jar in hand to pick up my sweet freebie. I have only tried Kiehl’s products once, and they were very nice. They were smooth, creamy, and had a pleasant but not overly powerful scent to them. I have also always loved their stores. They are bright and colourful. I have a special place in my heart for neon lights. In Vancouver, they have an entire (fake) skeleton in a lab coat and a pair of sunglasses – he is just great!

Now, it just says a Kiehl’s Starter Kit – it does not say what products are in it. However, I checked out starter kits on Keihl’s just to get an idea. Their usual starter kits retail for $29.50 and include three products each. Even if your kit is a mini starter kit… I would certainly estimate a value of $15 or more for the kit you will receive. When you pick up your free starter kit, let me know what you get! I am very hopeful it is a full size kit because that would be a very high value freebie.

This offer is available while supplies last, so I suggest taking advantage of it as soon as possible. There is an offer of one free starter kit per person 0 no matter how many jars you bring in to the store.

Canadian Freebie: Biotrue Contact Lens Solution

Posted by on April 23, 2015 at 8:05 AM

Canadian Freebie: Biotrue Contact Lens Solution

Bausch and Lomb is throwing us a little freebie that is perfect for your suitcase. Click the link and fill out a short form to receive your free sample of Biotrue contact lens solution.

Bausch and Lomb is throwing us a little freebie today that I am taking with me on my next trip. Once you visit the Biotrue website, they ask you to take the Biotrue challenge and test the product. When you first arrive, there is a short survey asking what contact lens solution you use. After submitting your answer, you are asked for your contact information to ship your free sample. A confirmation page pops up and your free sample is on the way. Biotrue states that you should receive your sample within two to three weeks. I also received an e-mail confirmation almost instantly saying my sample was on the way.

Biotrue is a combination solution for your contact lens. The solution mimics the PH level in your eyes and tears to give your eyes more comfort. This liquid tear solution is designed to help keep your eyes lubricated all day for the entirety of the time you wear your lens. This solution also disinfects and helps manage the protein build-up that can happen while wearing your contacts. I do not suffer personally from dry eyes with my contact lens, but know many people who have challenges wearing contact lens. A product that helps to keep tears between your contact lens and your eyes will also help ensure you can wear your contacts comfortably for longer. This solution is one more step to helping you keep your eyes clean and healthy.

The picture shows a sample size bottle of contact solution and a contact lens case. Biotrue does not specify if the contact lens case comes with the sample solution. I did receive a Biotrue sample for free in the mail last year and it did include a free contact lens kit, so I hope the same will hold true for this kit.

Requesting your sample is step one of your options. If you choose, you can simply request your sample and you are done. Or you can come back to the website and tell Biotrue if you felt a difference with their solution. Biotrue has a contest going right now that you can enter every day for a chance to win a $150 Spafinder gift certificate. This contest continues through May, but freebies usually only last for a limited amount of time. If you want one, grab it now!

Canadian Freebies: Free Sample of Numi Organic Tea K-Cup from RealCup

Posted by on April 22, 2015 at 3:00 PM

Canadian Freebies: Free Sample of Numi Organic Tea K Cup from RealCup

Happy Earth Day, let’s drink some tea! Check out the free three-capsule sample of Numi Organic Tea from RealCup. Sign in through Facebook from the link below and share with your friends the simple change you will make to make the world a better place. After sharing, your free capsules will be on their way to your house in the mail. These capsules are compatible with all Keurig K-cups brewers.

I found this freebie to be a little bit confusing, but do not worry we can walk you through it for some free tea! In the promo on Real Cup’s Facebook page, Numi Organic Tea would like to help the world be a better place and is asking participants to commit to one of the nine ways to be more eco-friendly.  Pick one – I chose to practice turning off the water when brushing my teeth. I am still trying to teach my daughter to turn off the water while brushing.

If you do not like broadcasting information about this Facebook promo, you could always try hiding the post after it is on your timeline. Click to your profile, find the post and change the privacy settings on the post to whatever you like. You could also tag your friend so they get free tea too.

After you share, you are given a form to fill out your shipping information and are given more details about flavours in the sample pack. Your sample pack includes three K-cups including:

  • Jasmine Green Tea
  • Morrocan Mint Tea
  • Aged Earl Grey Tea

After registering, you will receive a promo code for Numi Organic Tea. Numi Organic Tea does not ship their products to Canada from their website, so unfortunately the promo code only works for those of you in the U.S. Numi Organic Tea mentions on their website that you can now buy their delicious teas from Amazon Canada.

Your free sample will take 4-6 weeks to arrive. There is one additional flavor available for these capsules, a Rooibos Chai that sounds delicious. Unfortunately, this flavor is not included in the sample pack. If I decide to purchase this tea, that flavour will be in my order for the next round.

Numi Organic Tea also mentioned their capsules are recyclable! Recently I was reading about how no K-cups were recyclable and mentioned it in this post about upcycling K-cups. If these new capsules that are compatible with the Keurig K-cups truly are recyclable, I hope the technology takes off in the K-cup market. Until then, I will continue using my refillable K-cups I mentioned in my post and upcycling K-cups.

Canadian Freebie: Free Brewed Coffee Or Tea With Reusable Cup April 22nd @ Starbucks Canada

Posted by on April 21, 2015 at 11:09 AM

Canadian Freebie: Free Brewed Coffee Or Tea With Reusable Cup April 22nd @ Starbucks Canada

Yum, free Starbucks coffee for me for Earth Day! Stop into a participating Starbucks Canada with a reusable mug and receive a free brewed coffee or tea on April 22nd. Set an alert on your calendar now!

Starbucks is committed to doing a little good for Earth Day this year and reducing waste. On April 22nd, you can walk into a Starbucks Canada and receive a free brewed coffee or tea up to 16 oz. free. You must bring a reusable cup to take advantage of this freebie. Starbucks is promoting their new reusable cup that only costs $1, but you can bring in any reusable cup or mug for this promotion. Starbucks also mentions that any modifications are not included in this freebie. Drat, guess I will have to pay extra if I want them to drop a shot of espresso in my drip coffee.  Canadian Freebie: Free Brewed Coffee Or Tea With Reusable Cup April 22nd @ Starbucks Canada

My experience with these promotions from Starbucks is that often the smaller Starbucks kiosks such as those inside stores or at the airport do not participate in these promotions. On their website, Starbucks states that the offer is good only at participating Starbucks locations. You may want to check with your local store to make sure they are participating. Chances are good if you have successfully participated in any other Starbucks freebies at your location, they will be involved in this promotion also.

If you prefer Starbuck’s fancier coffees, do not overlook the little stand where you can add cream and sugar. Starbucks always has a nice array of various flavoured sugars you can add to your coffee. If you have never tried them, add a little chocolate or vanilla sugar to your freebie to jazz it up.

If you are a regular at Starbucks, you can bring that coffee mug with you all the time. Starbucks also offers 10 cents off the price of your drink every day if you bring your own mug. While not a huge savings, those dimes can add up if you frequent Starbucks.

For additional savings, consider joining Starbucks’s loyalty program if you are not already a member. Through this program, you earn stars for every drink you purchase. You will receive a freebie food or drink offer in the mail after registering, plus a free drink on your birthday. If you earn five stars in the first 12 months, you will receive free refills in store on brewed coffee or tea. Starbucks will also send you various promotions and freebies that are only for members.

Check out this fun video Starbucks made just for this promo!

Babbel.com: 3 Month Free Trial Worth $27 (Learn a Language)!

Posted by on April 18, 2015 at 4:00 PM

Babbel.com: 3 Month Free Trial Worth $27 (Learn a Language)!

While on my daily internet travels, I often find new and interesting sites, as I am sure many of us do. I recently discovered Babbel.com, a website and an app which helps you to learn the foreign language of your choice. And I have found out that while they do have paid subscriptions on Babbel, there is a way to get a free 3 month trial of their services!

First up, simply sign up for a free account on the link above and choose the language you want to learn. I selected Spanish just as a tester, even though I already have the basics in the language. Then… wait. One day after I signed up, I got an email offering me a free three month trial of their services. The email contained a unique link which when clicked, activated the deal.

If you do decide to keep on with the Babbel services after the initial 3 months, you can then choose to pay their subscription fees which start at $6.95 per month if you take out a longer subscription. The three month plan costs $8.95 per month… so technically you are getting a freebie worth $26.85 here.

I like the name Babbel.com, it makes me think of a few things related to languages and has a bit of cognitive dissonance going on there.

  1. It’s an anagram of babble, to speak rapidly
  2. The Tower of Babel in the bible regarding the origin of languages
  3. Babel Fish from The Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy

So, good name choice, Babbel.com!

I was in Spain last week on a vacation and I got the chance to practice my rusty Spanish. I’d studied the language for a few years at school and it surprised me how fast it all came back to mind. One thing I personally find with languages though – if you asked me to translate a particular verb or noun from English to Spanish, I couldn’t do it off the top of my head, I’ve forgotten a lot of the vocabulary. But, I can listen to a conversation and get the general gist of the flow by roughly translating the verbs and nouns… my brain just decides it wants to work that way. Babbel.com: 3 Month Free Trial Worth $27 (Learn a Language)!

Is there a language you’d really like to learn? Give it a try on Babbel.com and let us know how you get on. Adios!

Free 6 Pack of Crayola Markers @ Nestle Canada

Posted by on April 18, 2015 at 1:29 PM

Free 6 Pack of Crayola Markers @ Nestle Canada

Here is a fantastic new freebie offer from Nestle Canada. Fill out the short and simple form and you can receive a free six pack of Crayola Markers. This offer is only available for a limited time, or while quantities last. In other words, snag it now. You’ll need a UPC code to get this free pack of markers, but I have one provided for you below.

So, to get your free six pack of Crayola Markers from Nestle Canada, simply follow the link above and fill out the required information. You will have to submit your name, address, phone number and email like usual. You will also need to provide a UPC code to get the freebie. You can use one of your own, or use mine:

  • UPC CODE: 068274096334

There is no limit to how many people can use this UPC code, so don’t worry about it being a one time use code. Once you submit the form, you will get a confirmation notice that says delivery will take 6-8 weeks. You can then use your free Crayola markers to enter the Nestle Pure Life contest. Get your child to draw an adorable picture and send it in. This drawing could be featured on bottles of Nestle Pure Life Natural Spring Water. Wouldn’t that be cool? Just post the image on the Nestle Pure Life Facebook page.

Knowing my kiddo, he would probably submit a cute and simple drawing. I know some children out there that have amazing artistic abilities, it would be pretty impressive to have their art featured on the water bottles. I do wonder which colours will be included in your pack of free markers though. Depending on the colours, the drawing could be limited. I am sure the usual blue, purple, orange, green, red and yellow will be included, but who knows.

Enjoy your freebie Moosers!

FREE Lysol No-Touch Hand Soap System with Mail-in Rebate ($18 Value)

Posted by on April 17, 2015 at 4:48 PM

FREE Lysol No Touch Hand Soap System with Mail in Rebate ($18 Value)

I am excited to let you know that this awesome Lysol freebie is back! Use the mail in rebate form below to get a free Lysol no-touch antibacterial hand soap system.

Seriously, this is a great freebie! Lysol will refund you up to $17.90 to cover the cost of the product, taxes, and postage. I always figured that you would only get what you pay for the dispenser (plus taxes and postage) but freebie lovers like Krista say you can get the full rebate even if you pay less for the mail in rebate:

For example, if you purchase it for $19.99 somewhere, you will only get the rebate for the maximum of $17.90. Why not find it on sale for $11.99, and then you will still get the $17.90 and you could actually make money! I have done this many time before.

I think this is a fantastic plan. I know my partner has done this with food on apps like Checkout 51. I think he made like $1 a bag on crisps (times three) one time.

To receive your refund, you need to purchase the product in store and then complete the Official Refund Form in the link above. You must attach the original dated cash register receipt from where you purchased the Lysol system. Make sure to circle the price on the receipt and write down the Universal Product Code (UPC) on the receipt as well. Failure to do so will result in no refund. FREE Lysol No Touch Hand Soap System with Mail in Rebate ($18 Value)

There is a limit of one rebate per household / address. This is typical of all freebies. Even if you have taken advantage of this offer before, you can still do so again. They do not exclude people who have taken advantage of this promotion previously (like back in September).

Purchase the Lysol no-touch antibacterial hand soap system between now and July 31st, 2015. Then, make sure to mail in the completed rebate form with attached receipt by the 31st of August. They need to receive your completed Official Rebate Form by the end of august in order for you to be eligible. The rebate will take six to eight weeks to arrive.

I have never taken advantage of this offer before, but I am thinking of buying one, filling out the rebate, and then giving it to my parents. I could see this being quite useful in my father’s shop.

Canadian Freebie: 3M VHB Tape

Posted by on April 14, 2015 at 11:30 AM

Canadian Freebie: 3M VHB Tape

Right now, 3M is giving away a free sample of the 3M VHB Tape. This tape is tough and designed to replace screws and hold up to weather conditions. Snag your free sample with 3M before they are gone!

When you fill out the form, this sample asks for your contact information along with your company name. 3M does state that they intend to fulfil this sample for commercial samples. I always write that I am an independent contractor, which I am on the side. After you submit your information, the website does mention on the page after you submit that a 3M representative will be contacting you within seven business days. I suspect you will receive either an e-mail or a brochure in the mail. I did not receive a confirmation e-mail immediately such as may happen with some other sample requests. I expect the sample will take a few weeks to arrive, though 3M does not state explicitly how long it will take.

Several years back I worked with a company that regularly created exhibitions for the public. Our shows had to be clean, concise and hold up to lots of people touching and pulling on items that they should be only reading. I was regularly mounting text panels, figuring out how to make pieces more durable and working with the amazing people in our shop to finish projects. A 3M double-sided industrial tape was regularly in our toolbox. I went through huge reams of double-sided tape for every installation and always had success.

I do not doubt that the 3M VHB tape will hold up to almost any project you give it. This tape is for heavy duty construction projects. You can attach this double-sided tape to metal, glass, plastic and a large variety of other surfaces. Use this tape as a replacement for screws and bolts, no holes or drills needed.

This product will also stand up to various weather elements such as rain, wind and extreme heat and cold. I can see using this sample for several outdoor projects I have in mind, and I bet it will hold together nicely. There is a video testimonial on the 3M website in which a company that works mainly with aluminium praises the tape for also bonding quickly to surfaces without drying time. Most other products that bond as strong as bolts and nails have a long drying time and lots of chemical fumes. I am looking forward to trying out my free sample when it arrives.

Bargainmoosers, what would you hold together with this tape?

Free ice cream?! Head into a Ben & Jerry’s Canada location tomorrow the 14th of April to get a free ice cream cone during their Free Cone Day promotion. This is Ben & Jerry’s way of saying thank you to their faithful fans and customers, so be sure to drop in and collect the token of appreciation.

Tomorrow is the annual Ben & Jerry’s Free Cone Day. While I have noticed that there are not many Ben & Jerry’s locations in Canada, free ice cream is too hard to pass up. If you have a Ben & Jerry’s Ice Cream Parlour near you, make sure you get in at some point tomorrow to claim your free ice cream cone. This offer is valid from noon until 8pm tomorrow only.

By looking at the store locator, I can tell you that there are Ben & Jerry locations in Saskatchewan, Alberta, Ontario, and Manitoba. There seems to be about 25 locations across Canada, so hopefully there is one close enough for you to enjoy this freebie. Ben and Jerry’s has been giving away free ice cream once a year since 1979, so why break the tradition?

I have tried Ben & Jerry’s ice cream from the grocery store – and my are the flavours ever delicious. I would only imagine that they would be so much more delightful in the actual ice cream parlour. This offer does not specify which size cones and flavours are included in the offer. I took a look at Ben & Jerry’s flavour list and I may or may not be drooling already.

Take a look at some of the flavours and you’ll surely be collection your free ice cream cone. How about Banana Peanut Butter, Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough or Strawberry Cheesecake? Om nom nom! I think I will be having a bubble bath with a bowl of ice cream tonight.

Enjoy the free ice cream Moosers!
