Glitch?!? Orange Chocolate Sweet Spice Herbal Tea Only $4 & Completely Free Shipping Coupon Code @ Teavana

Do you love fancy tea as much as I do?  Score some of Teavana’s Orange Chocolate Sweet  Spice Herbal Tea that was $7.98 for 2 oz. but is now only $3.99. Teavana has released a coupon code for completely free shipping that is intended as a US only code, but will give you free shipping with no minimum to Canada also!

Click here to buy the Orange Chocolate Sweet Spice Herbal Tea @  Teavana now

  • Coupon Code: FIREWORKS
  • Discount: Free shipping with no minimum
  • Expires: 5th July 2015

I am giddy with excitement about this deal Bargainmoosers, as I have some truly amazing tea deals to share with you today. First off, as I mentioned above Teavana has released a free shipping code that is intended to give Americans free shipping all weekend for the holiday. I have some good news, the coupon code works and ships free to Canada!

I immediately headed over to the sale section to see what delicious teas I could score at a bargain price. Right now Teavana has discounted the Pumpkin Spice Brulee Oolong by 50%! This is a great time to stock up on some delicious tea for fall. This herbal tea sounds delicious with flavours of orange, chocolate and hints of chilli.

If you enjoy bringing your tea habit into the summertime as iced tea, then you will be excited about this next deal. Grab the Sangria Punch Black Tea that was $9.98 but is now only $4.99. I have been eyeing this Sangria flavoured tea for over a month now but was not willing to pay the shipping costs to try it. I sacrificed for you Bargainmoosers and ordered some for myself to make sure that code works. With flavours of red wine grapes, citrus, hibiscus and currents, this sounds like a delicious tea to sip cold on a hot summer day. Check out my cart here where I ordered this tea:

Glitch?!? Orange Chocolate Sweet Spice Herbal Tea Only $4 & Completely Free Shipping Coupon Code @ Teavana

If you are not sure how to brew loose-leaf tea for summer, you should also pick up the Blue Infusion Tea Pitcher. This pitcher was $16.89 but now is only $13.97. That may seem like a slim discount, but when you compare it to the slightly larger $28 Perfect Pitcher at David’s Tea, this pitcher at Teavana that functions the same for iced tea is a steal. I bought the David’s Tea pitcher and it is amazing, but I wish I had waited for the deal on this smaller pitcher.

We have seen a similar shipping glitch from Teavana that I blogged last month. I ordered the last time and my order was to my door within three days. I was very happy with both the quality and quickness of my order. If you like these teas, I would order now before Teavana sees this glitch! Teavana does ship from the states, but duties are prepaid at checkout if you spend over $20, and there are no duty costs for orders under $20.

To see a little more about the tour, check out this video on Nutella’s Facebook page.

So by now you should be drooling and asking where can I get some of these great Nutella freebies?

Taco Bell Printable Coupon: Quesarito Combo Meal For 2 – Just $9.99

Posted by on June 28, 2015 at 5:00 PM

Taco Bell Printable Coupon: Quesarito Combo Meal For 2   Just $9.99

Don’t feel like cooking tonight? Then here’s an awesome printable coupon for Taco Bell: print it out to get a Quesarito meal for 2 for just $9.99.

I have to say that I’m actually really surprised that with this printable coupon, you will get two combos for $9.99. I had to read the fine print a couple of times to make sure that I wasn’t reading what I wanted to read but yes indeed, you will get:

  • 2 beef Quesaritos
  • 2 regular fries
  • 2 regular drinks

A meal for 2 for essentially $10 is pretty awesome nowadays. I hardly ever get junk food for this reason but without any printable coupons, you can definitely expect to pay double that price for most meals, if not more!

Trying to find out what’s inside this quesarito proved slightly challenging. Judging by the picture above, I would have guessed that it’s filled with beer, cheese and fries but poking around online, I found a description at that it’s filled with rice rather than the fries that I seem to see. The Canadian version of Taco Bell’s site hasn’t been updated yet with the new addition, but all it says in reference to it is: “a cheesy quesedilla, wrapped around a beefy burrito” with no mention of any fries or rice.

In any case, this is a minor detail that you can find out in-stores and anyways, do you really need anything other than beef and cheese? Taco Bell Printable Coupon: Quesarito Combo Meal For 2   Just $9.99

I’m particularly intrigued by the fact that it’s a beef burrito wrapped in a cheesy quesadilla. That sounds beyond delicious and I definitely can’t wait to give it a try!

As always, you can find this Taco Bell printable coupon on the Bargainmose forum. In case you didn’t know, you can also subscribe to get the latest coupons straight into your inbox.

Canadian Freebies: Fibre 1, Chex Cereal Or Nature Valley Muesli Free Product Coupon @

Posted by on June 22, 2015 at 2:00 PM

Canadian Freebies: Fibre 1, Chex Cereal Or Nature Valley Muesli Free Product Coupon @

Who out there wants more free product coupons? Head on over to right now to claim a coupon for a free Fibre 1 Crumble, Chex Cereal or Nature Valley Muesli full-size product. Head over quick, freebie coupons do not always stick around long.

This newest free product coupon is from General Mills through their portal. Coupons can be redeemed only on Friday, July 31st, 2015 once you receive it in the mail. These free product coupons are part the new Free Fridays program that has been offering multiple free product coupons lately. I personally like this new program, as I am a big fan of trying new products free before I consider purchasing a product.

You must have a account to receive the coupon, but signing up is free if you do not already have an account. This coupon includes a full sized Fibre 1 Crumble,  Chex Cereal or Nature Valley Muesli. It looks like General Mills is again debuting new flavours to entice us with for this promotion. The Chex Cereal appears from the picture to be a new cinnamon flavour. The Fibre 1 option looks to be some sort of crumble bar. One is a dark colour that looks like blueberry, and the other is most likely either a strawberry or raspberry flavour.  Lastly, there is the Nature Valley Muesli.  It is hard to tell what the flavour option is for the Muesli but looks like it would be delicious with some yogurt or milk.

If you are not a cereal person, do not forget there are many recipes online that you can add cereal as an ingredient. For example if you head on over to the Betty Crocker website, I see multiple cereal bar recipes you could add the Cinnamon Chex Mix into. When you have a freebie is a great time to experiment with a new recipe.

If you did not grab the Nature Valley and Oatmeal Crisp coupon freebie, it looks like there may still be a few free product coupons left that you can click an order at the same time as this newest freebie coupon.

Set your calendar on your phone so you do not forget. With so many different freebie coupons lately, I need to set a reminder for myself to claim my coupon. I would hate to accidentally miss one of these yummy freebies offered lately. At this rate, I have breakfast planned for multiple weeks!

Goodness Me! Free Shipping No Minimum & 20% Off

Posted by on June 18, 2015 at 2:00 PM

Goodness Me! Free Shipping No Minimum & 20% Off

Goodness Me! is a divine little spot of heaven for natural and organic food, beauty products, and more. Today and tomorrow they are offering free shipping on any order with no minimum. I also tested this previously mentioned 20% off coupon codeKHRF – and it works* WITH the free shipping!

*Note: The 20% off coupon code only works once per account. If you have used it once before, you cannot use it again.

I didn’t think I would be placing another order for myself so soon, but they stock Theo Chocolate. Theo is a brand out of Seattle that makes, in my opinion, the best chocolate bars you can have. The ingredients are squeaky clean, free of soy, and the taste is divine. Currently, two bars of their chocolate are on sale: Dark Chocolate 70%, 85g and Milk Chocolate, 85g. Originally $4.79 each, they are on sale for $3.50. After coupon code, purchase each bar for just $2.80 with free shipping. I just ordered a bar of the milk chocolate for my father and two bars of soap. My total was just under $15 and it shipped, free of charge, to rural Alberta.

I like when you can combine sale products with coupons and free shipping offers. This SkinGel from Nature’s Aid is on sale from $13.99 down to $12.49. Use the above coupon code to receive this product for just $9.99. I own a bottle of this gel and it is excellent for itchy skin and sunburn. It is an aloe based product, which accounts for the cooling affect it will have on your skin.

Summer is the season of lemonade. If you are not up to making your own, then purchase Santa Cruz Organic Lemonade, 946ml. Originally $4.49 per bottle, the lemonade is now on sale for $2.50. If you have not already used the 20% off coupon code, then each bottle of lemonade comes down to $2.

The first time we posted about this company, we received a great response. One Mooser said:

They just opened one near me – I am in love with this store!

And fellow blogger Eva said:

I shop in-store at Goodness Me all the time! I love that store! Might have to shop online with such low shipping too.

With this free shipping deal and the 20% off coupon code, there is no reason why you should not shop at Goodness Me! online.

Canadian Freebies: Nature Valley Or Oatmeal Crisp Free Product Coupon @

Posted by on June 15, 2015 at 3:30 PM

Canadian Freebies: Nature Valley Or Oatmeal Crisp Free Product Coupon @

Click through now and you can receive a coupon mailed to your door for a free full-size product. You can choose between a box of the new flavour of Nature Valley granola bars or a box of the new flavour of Oatmeal Crisp.

Life Made Delicious has teamed up with to offer you a delicious freebie. Right now, you can click through the Life Made Delicious coupon portable above and grab a free product coupon. This coupon will entitle you to a full sized new product that is redeemable only on Wednesday July 24th. Set you calendar with a reminder so you do not miss it.  Brooke blogged about a free taco seasoning coupon the other day through that worked similarly. This freebie also says it is part of the Free Friday program. I am not sure where the Friday part comes in this time as you redeem this coupon on a Wednesday, and today is a Monday. As long as the free part works, it is fine with me! You must have a account to claim this coupon but you can sign up for one for free.

This freebie includes two product choices. I am glad to hear there is a choice, as sometimes the freebies that are limited to only one day can be difficult to find in the store. Big freebies are swiped up quickly. This is a full-size product after all.

First up is Oatmeal Crisp Cereal, which is available in five different flavours. This is not the brand of cereal I usually pick, but the Vanilla Almond in that line sounds delicious. I do not see the flavour featured for the coupon on the website, but it looks like the new flavour is either a cranberry chocolate flavour or a cherry chocolate flavour. Either way, it sounds like we should have a delicious choice.

Also included are Nature Valley Nut and Seed Crisps. I looked at the General Mills Website but did not find any information about this type of bar. Nature Valley bars are usually delicious, packed full of nuts, dried fruit, chocolate and seeds. I usually prefer the chewy versions of their bars but may try these nut bars because they are packed full of seeds. The image is not clear exactly on the flavour, but I am seeing almonds on both featured boxes.

Grab your coupons now for these great freebies. I know one of the times I sent away for a limited time coupon like this, they ended up sending out a bunch more freebie coupons when they ran out of stock at many stores. Then I was able to grab my freebie more leisurely, it was great. You should receive the coupon in five to eight business days.

How to Save Money Eating Gluten Free

Posted by on June 13, 2015 at 8:00 PM

How to Save Money Eating Gluten Free

For people who have celiac disease (gluten sensitivity) eating gluten free foods is a necessity.  For others, eating gluten free foods (foods without wheat flour in them, namely common foods such as pizza, cookies, bread, pancakes, pastas, and many cereals) is a choice that improves their health.  Eating wheat free has become not only a fad, but a very popular diet that encompasses avoiding wheat products such as pizza, cookies, bread, and things like pancakes.

Although I do not have celiac disease or gluten sensitivity, since reading the book Wheat Belly, written by cardiologist Dr. William Davis, I have cut down on the amount of wheat that I eat in the day.  On days that I have wheat, like pasta or a pizza, I do find that I feel more bloated, more fatigued, and more lethargic.  Therefore, I try to avoid too much wheat, but I’m not super strict as I really enjoy the taste of pizza and pasta from time to time.

Just like going with the Paleo diet, eating gluten free can be more expensive than a typical North American diet full of convenience foods that make you full.  According to Yahoo Finance, the gluten free industry is set to be a $1.7 billion industry by the year 2017.  However, it doesn’t have to be.  Here are a few ways to save money when eating gluten free.

Don’t Forget the More Economical Grains

For many that avoid gluten, they opt for expensive alternatives to wheat, such as millet, quinoa, couscous, and buckwheat.  According to Today’s Dietician, many people forget about other alternatives to quinoa it is  good ol’ rice, corn, and gluten-free oats.  These are more economical than the more ‘ancient-grains’ type of carbohydrate.  I have oatmeal every morning for breakfast and make my own granola from the 100 days of real food granola recipe.

Be Friends with the Freezer

As with how to save money on the paleo diet, one of the best ways to save money on a gluten free diet is the plan ahead with your meals (remember, organization is key!) for the week and freeze them.  Instead of gravitating towards fast food after work, grab a meal out of your freezer so you have a weeknight meal ready to go.  Invest in a chest freezer if your freezer in your kitchen is tight on space.

Learn to Cook

According to Huffington Post, gluten free foods can cost anywhere from 76% higher to 518% higher than non glutenous foods.  The prepackaged gluten free food is what really adds up in terms of cost at the supermarket.  If you learn to cook a lot of the gluten free foods yourself you will save a lot of money.

There is a lot of gluten free junk food out there.  Just because it’s gluten free that doesn’t mean that it is healthy or good for you because essentially it is junk food disguised in a sheep’s clothing.  Pre-packaged gluten free foods are definitely more expensive.

Instead, if you want to have snack foods on hand, prepare them ahead of time:  kale chips, brussell sprout chips, and even homemade Larabars (see this homemade Larabar recipe from the hundred days of real food blog) are great ways to stave off the urge to buy packaged foods.

Look for Gluten Free Recipes

There are many places that you can find gluten free recipes that are practical and can easy to replicate.  For one, there are a few recipes posts in the Wheat Belly blog website and at the back of the book if you’re ready.  In addition simply googling for gluten free recipes is also effective and the search engine will find you some more gluten free recipes, of course!

Know Where to Shop

The places that offer a wide selection of gluten free foods with the best price is at Trader Joe’s.  I bought some brown rice pasta (gluten free) for really cheap and it tastes delicious (I think it was under $3 Canadian) and I think it is reasonable for the price and the effort it takes to get to a Trader Joe’s.  Also, Superstore has a health aisle/ gluten free organic section now for very reasonable prices.

Bargainmoosers, how do you and your family save on gluten free recipes and meals?

(Printable Coupons) A&W Canada: Free Buddy Burger Or Coffee & Hashbrown (With Purchase)

Posted by on June 10, 2015 at 11:00 AM

(Printable Coupons) A&W Canada: Free Buddy Burger Or Coffee & Hashbrown (With Purchase)

Need an excuse to swing by A&W for a meal? Right now, you can grab a few new printable coupons and receive a free Buddy Burger or grab a free coffee and hashbrown for breakfast with purchase.

(You’ll have to sign up on the above site to get the free printable coupons)

I try not to hit the drive-thru very often. I took my daughter to A&W not long ago for her first rootbeer during their last promotion, which Brooke blogged about last month. My daughter liked the lollipop they gave her, but would barely touch the rootbeer. Every time we pass by any A&W now she says “Remember when we went there and had that drink and I had a lolly? Do you remember Mommy?” Even though she has never eaten a meal there, A&W is regularly promoted now from the backseat of my car.

If you are feeling a little hungry, you should keep these printable coupons in your car for your next quick meal. Included are the following discounts and freebies with purchase:

  • Free Buddy Burger with cheese with the purchase of any combo meal
  • Free 12oz. coffee and hashbrown with the purchase of any breakfast sandwich
  • Add an extra patty to a Teen Burger or a Mozza Burger free
  • Upgrade from fries to sweet potato fries on individual purchase or combo meal free

To print these coupons, you must login or signup for a free account. Once you sign in, there is also an option to send a free rootbeer coupon to a friend. My husband loves free rootbeer so I might send one his way. A&W will only let you use one coupon per transaction. You should be able to checkout separately if you go with another person.

The first coupon for the free Buddy Burger could easily feed both my daughter and me for around $9. Most combos cost about $8 to $10 depending on your location, and that free Buddy Burger should save you about $4. Your prices may vary, but I did find some pricing online for a location in Sudbury, Ontario. If you have not tried those sweet potato fries, they are more delicious then the normal fries. I usually make my own homemade orange fries, but I can never get them as crispy in my oven as A&W can crisp them in the fryer!

Tim Hortons: Small Caramel Iced Coffee Only $1

Posted by on June 5, 2015 at 4:00 PM

Tim Hortons: Small Caramel Iced Coffee Only $1

Tim Hortons has a new sweet special for coffee addicts like me. Right now, you can grab a Small Caramel Iced Coffee for only $1 at participating locations.

I have spoken several times about my slight coffee addiction here on Bargainmoose. I do love Starbucks when they have deals, but for every day, Tim Hortons is my coffee of choice. Now Tim Hortons is singing the caffeine siren song with these awesome $1 Caramel Iced Coffees.  If I am remembering correctly, a small iced coffee costs about $1.50, but if anyone knows the exact price please note it in the comments.

This drink is straightforward and yummy. Included in your cup will be coffee, ice, cream and caramel. I usually lean towards an iced cappuccino, but this drink will sway me at this price to give something new a try. I sometimes order the regular iced coffees in summer as a cold alternative to a more decadent drink. You can also ask for regular milk instead of cream to lighten your calories a bit more.

If you are craving one of those super decadent drinks, you could also substitute chocolate milk for cream. I substitute chocolate milk occasionally in an iced cappuccino at no extra cost, and it is delicious. The chocolate milk will give you a nice taste of chocolate yumminess mixed with that caramel. This is a nice alternative to the Chocolate Chill drinks, which are more expensive. While that chocolate drink looks delicious, it seems to be a little too much chocolate for me.

Over at Tim Hortons’ website, they have also included a little game with this iced caramel coffee announcement. Use your arrow keys to move and combine matching tiles. Each time you combine the tiles and unlock a new tile, the tile appears at the bottom of the game. I tried to see how far I could get in the game, hoping Tim Hortons would throw me a free coffee or coupon as a reward. I played for a couple rounds before I gave up, only managing to unlock eight different tiles. Bargainmoosers, if you play and manage to unlock all of the tiles, please report back as to what happens! Is it just a, “Congratulations, You Won,” note or is it something more?

Tim Hortons does not specify how long this promotion will be available. If you are interested in trying this drink for only a buck, you may want to swing by a Tim Hortons soon.

Free Doughnut Of Your Choice For National Doughnut Day (Friday June 5th) @ Krispy Kreme Canada (EXPIRED)

Posted by on June 4, 2015 at 6:00 PM

Free Doughnut Of Your Choice For National Doughnut Day (Friday June 5th) @ Krispy Kreme Canada (EXPIRED)

Yum! I like doughnuts for a treat, but they taste better when they are free. On Friday June 5th, head over to your local Krispy Kreme for a free doughnut, no purchase necessary.

Krispy Kreme doughnuts are light, fluffy and are beloved by many people. Where I live, the local Costco sometimes sells them in the feature sample spot. They always have warm and fresh free samples, which is the best way to eat a Krispy Kreme doughnut. I share grocery coupons with one of my neighbours, and she made a special trip over to my house to tell me several months ago that Costco was selling Krispy Kreme doughnuts that weekend. I did not prompt her or ask her to look out for doughnuts, she just loves them that much that she wanted to share the doughnut yumminess.

Now you can grab your own doughnut completely free. National Doughnut Day is in honour of the Salvation Army Volunteers. This event commemorates volunteers providing doughnuts to soldiers on the lines during WWI. Free doughnuts is a good way to remember these brave volunteers.

Your free doughnut is not limited to Krispy Kreme’s famous original glazed doughnut according to the Facebook event. You can choose a doughnut in any variety. If you like the glazed doughnuts, I would suggest trying the Maple Glazed Doughnut. My daughter without a doubt would pick the brightly coloured sprinkle doughnut. My husband would pick either the Cinnamon Apple filled doughnut or the Apple Fritter. Your choices may vary based on what is available at your location. You can see all the flavours on the menu at the Krispy Kreme website.

I looked at where the Krispy Kreme’s are located, as I too would enjoy a free doughnut tomorrow. According to the Krispy Kreme website, there are locations in the following places.


  • Toronto Downtown (2 locations)
  • Mississauga


  • Quebec City
  • Greenfield Park


  • Delta

This promotion lasts all day. Like most bakeries, you will have the best selection if you head over earlier in the day. I think they bake some of the doughnuts throughout the day, but I would guess most are baked in the morning. Maybe if you are lucky your treat will be waiting there for you warm, just out of the oven. I need to stop blogging about delicious doughnuts now before I go buy one. The freebie is not until tomorrow!

Domino’s Pizza Promo Code: 2-Topping Large Pizza + 2L Coca-Cola Product – Just $9.99

Posted by on June 3, 2015 at 8:00 AM

Dominos Pizza Promo Code: 2 Topping Large Pizza + 2L Coca Cola Product   Just $9.99

*** BUMP – coupon code extended to the 6th June 2015! ***

Grrrr…. writing about pizza deals sure does suck, especially when there is a picture of a delicious-looking pizza staring at you in the face, practically screaming: “you know you want me!”

In all seriousness though, if you don’t know what to eat tonight, then here’s a great deal from Domino’s. You can use the coupon code below to get a large 2-topping pizza with a 2L Coca-Cola product for just $9.99.

Click here to order pizza @ now

  • Coupon Code: 4049
  • Discount: $9.99 for large pizza & 2L Coca-Cola product
  • Expiry: 6th June 2015

Usually, all Domino’s coupon codes are visible in their “coupons” section but I actually couldn’t find this one. It’s possible that it depends on your location but in any case, I tested out this coupon and it does indeed work. Here’s proof:

Dominos Pizza Promo Code: 2 Topping Large Pizza + 2L Coca Cola Product   Just $9.99

Before entering the code, the pizza came up to $15.49 and I also didn’t have to add the Coke beforehand. As soon as I entered the promo code, a pop-up appeared asking me to choose a beverage between a Coke Zero, Coke, Diet Coke or a Sprite. Personally, I rarely drink any soda anymore but I don’t mind taking advantage of offers like these that include a soda as I simply stow them away for when guests come over. Do make sure that you get your soda though as the last time I ordered from Domino’s, they forgot to give it to us!

To order your large pizza, you need to click on “entrees” and then “build your own pizza”. Don’t make the same mistake as I did though: before clicking “add to order”, don’t forget to select the kind of crust you want and of course the size from under the giant picture of the pizza. Then click “next step” to select your cheese, sauce and toppings.

Here’s an awesome tip: when choosing your sauce, you can select “extra” from the drop down menu to get extra sauce at no extra cost. Sadly, this little tip won’t work with the cheese or the topping though — trust me, I’ve tried!

When you go to check out, you will also be offered parmesan bread bites for just $2.99. At that price, you actually get 16 of these little bad boys, so it’s definitely worth it. I haven’t tried them yet but they look absolutely scrumptious from the picture.

Canadian Freebie: Hellmann’s Stick Pack Sample From Unilever

Posted by on May 29, 2015 at 10:58 AM

Canadian Freebie: Hellmann’s Stick Pack Sample From Unilever

Unilever is giving away free samples today of its famous mayonnaise in a new single-serve stick packaging. Head on over to grab your freebie before they are all gone.

Mayonnaise is not my favourite condiment, but I know so many people like it. I was at a friend’s house who was watching her weight for a vacation. She skipped out on a delicious mini croissant for her sandwich but could not skip the mayo! If you have a love affair or at least a casual friendship with mayo, you should send away for this free sample.

There is a catch with this freebie. It states on the Unilever website that this sample is for verified business addresses only. I am an independent contractor, so my home address technically is a business address also. You may want to consider sending this freebie to a business location or the order may be cancelled. Fill out the form with your info. Once you submit, you should receive a confirmation e-mail within a few minutes. Unilever states in that e-mail that they will check your submission, and send out your sample within two weeks

These packets of mayo are compact, but they have more mayo in them than the average packet of mayo. They also are much easier to open than your typical small packet of mayo.  Those tiny ketchup style packets never have enough mayo in just one packet for a sandwich and I always end up with at least one packet that explodes across my daughter’s plate. I have had these new mayo packs included on my plate alongside a hamburger I ordered when visiting the states. My condiment-loving husband went on about how amazing they are for weeks. Well honey, they have finally arrived in Canada!

These would be handy to throw in your picnic basket this summer. When you add the mayo to your sandwich ahead of time, I find the sandwich can get soggy. If you apply the mayo right before you eat, the sandwich tastes so much better. If you cater parties, these would also be great alongside a buffet. I imagine these would be much less messy than a bowl of mayo on a buffet. Being the odd person who does not care for mayonnaise on my sandwich, I am always grateful when the condiments are served on the side to indulge my pickiness. Grab your free sample of a great product now before they are gone.

Head into East Side Mario’s this week with this printable coupon and you’ll be able to feed your little rugrats for free. For every meal you buy (with a minimum price of $13.95), you’ll get a free Mario Mini Meal, valued at $5, or $5 off a $10 meal.

This coupon is valid for dine-in only and is not valid on tables with more than 10 children. That means the Duggars are out of luck. For someone like me, with three children, I find that kid’s meals can still be too large for my younger kids, so they share one anyway. I could take my kids out this week and just pay for my husband and I to eat and the kids will eat free.

The kids also have to be 12 and under.

I like taking the kids to East Side Mario’s because I find it loud there, so my kids loud talking, fighting and whining about when the food will come is oblivious to the other diners. There is also quite a bit on the menu that they like, because all of my kids will actually eat pasta.

Mario meals are cool because they include quite a bit:

  • meal
  • drink
  • dessert
  • activity book with crayons
  • toy

While I wouldn’t say their menu is stellar cuisine, there are options on there you know kids will eat, like dino buddies, pogos, pizza, grilled cheese soldiers and more. The dessert is your choice of a brownie or three mini ice cream cones. What I like about the mini ice cream cones is that I can steal one! I’m usually too full for dessert but it gives me that little bit of sweetness after dinner.

The coupon expires on Sunday and usually these coupons will say Sunday to Thursday only, but this one doesn’t. That means you can actually go out on a Friday or Saturday night and get a kids eat free deal. Tuesday all kids meals are already $2, so you might not want to go that night, as that is a great deal in itself as well. They also have some very cool drinks that kids will love and I remember liking going there as a kid because of the drinks. Maybe I still go there for that reason East Side Marios Coupon: Free Mini Mario Meal

WagJag Canada: $24 For 24 Packs of Pur Gum Plus Bonus Mints & Free Shipping

WagJag Canada: $24 For 24 Packs of Pur Gum Plus Bonus Mints & Free Shipping

This deal is very timely for me. Get 24 packs of Pur gum plus two packs of bonus mints with shipping included for only $24 at WagJag Canada.

Here’s why the deal is timely. My youngest son started kindergarten this year and turned from my very easygoing, fun and lovable child into a bit of a nightmare for his teachers. None of us could understand it, as he was the kid I put in his crib as a baby and he just went to sleep. He was the toddler who followed along wherever we went without a hassle or a typical toddler tantrum. In preschool he excelled and everyone loved him. Once kindergarten started, that all changed and he didn’t want to follow rules, continually struck out at his classmates and teachers and just sort of wanted to be left alone to play. Now, I do believe the high ratio of kids plus full-day everyday kindergarten somewhat contributed. But, once I delved further into it, we found out that taking his soother away just before kindergarten started threw him for a complete loop and he is looking for some oral stimulation.

It was recommended to us that he chew gum in class and that may just be the bit that will help him sit through circle time and stop talking and interrupting. But, I don’t like gum – almost every gum contains aspartame and I am always making sure my children never ingest the stuff. But, I don’t want to give them traditionally high-sugar gums because I worry about cavities. In comes Pur gum.

Pur gum is aspartame-free and is sweetened with Xylitol, which is a naturally occuring sugar substitute. While the minty flavours might not fully appeal to him, there are a few I know he will chew. I also think I could do some chewing to stave off my afternoon cravings for sugar. My husband will also I’m sure, steal a few packs as he is a huge gum chewer.

While you are considering this deal, you see that it is about $1 a pack for this gum. Comparing around, I see that has this gum on sale for $18.69 for 12 packs. You’ll also have to pay for shipping on that one or get your total up. sells one pack for $1.49.

Already, 580 people have taken advantage of this deal, which tells you this is a good saving. WagJag says the regular price is about $63 for this total package.

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

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.
