For awesome coupons!  Right now they have coupons that you can’t find anywhere else.  Some are printable that you can get right now and some they mail to you (they come within 4-6 days). A few of my favorites are:

-$1 off Coca-Cola product,  home mailer
-$2 off Kashi product, printable
-$1 off Honest Tea product,  printable

-$3 off $50 Publix purchase, (Atlanta area stores) printable

How to Get Started::

I am getting a lot of emails and comments lately saying that Recyclebank baffles them and asking how to get started.  So I thought I would walk you through everything.

  1. Start by registering with Recyclebank. (It’s free)
  2. Once logged in, click on “Earn Points” across the top.
  3. Look for the logo of each of the point options above, click on them and start earning.
  4. Once you have earned all the points you can, click on the “Get Rewards” section at the top
  5. Pick a Reward Category and start looking for coupons. Most of the printable coupons are under: Food & Beverage, Health & Beauty or Pets
  6. Select the coupon you want and proceed to “checkout”. After cashing in your points you’ll either get a link to print the coupon right now or the coupons will be mailed to you in a week or so.

Understanding the Green Your Home Section

If you are getting to the house and then getting lost, here’s some help.

  1. Before you start going through make sure you are registered or logged in.
  2. Look in the right corner to pick a room.
  3. A big floor plan of the house will pop up. Each open room will be blue, click on the room you want to go to
  4. Once inside a room, click on each [+] to take a quiz or learn a fact.
  5. After earning points make sure you click each time to get your points (if you don’t then you aren’t earning anything)

Each room in the house took me maybe 3 or 4 minutes so total. You might spend 20 minutes earning these points (and learning fun facts) and then have some great coupons!
