      I need two more people! Anyone want to help?!?!?

    • Darlene

      Can't seem to get this to work.

    • Freedom

      i got mine

    • Rebecca


    • Amy B.

      I bought one and so did the hubs :) Thanks for the tip!!

    • Ashleemichele

      How do you buy it?? I see the offer but not a place to purchase it??

    • Michelle

      Got it!

    • Kelley Harold

      Yay! Thanks for sharing this. Never bought a livingsocial deal before, but who couldn't use Amazon?!

    • Just bought mine!

    • Jennifer

      I can't seem to get this to work either…no deals showing up for me???

      • Jennifer

        Does it only work if you had a previous account?
        I made a new account for myself and one for my husband. No deals showing up on either account.

      • Cynthia

        At first I couldn't see the deal either. Then I clicked on “other deals” and selected Atlanta as the city. The Amazon deal showed up then.

        • Jennifer

          Thanks – I will try that!

        • Jennifer

          It worked! thanks so much!

    • Jlaleonard

      HOT deal! Look how many are being sold! It says, “Share for a Free Deal”
      “After you buy the deal, you'll get a unique link to share. If three people buy the deal using your link, then your deal is free”

    • jrun

      just signed up for a new account and that was the first deal that popped up. not sure if it matters what city, but it worked for nashville. great deal, thanks!

      • DonnaChas

        Do you get anything for signing up to Living Social?

    • Kelly B.

      Awesome! Thanks!

    • Jennifer

      Can't get it to work either. Bummer.

      • lyssibee

        try another city: livingsocial(dot)com/atlanta worked for me….

      • Sandra

        It just worked for me….what a great deal

        • Tamela

          I've never done this before. How do you get the $20.00?

    • couponmama

      I think it doesn't work for some cities maybe? When I clicked on the link it asked me to confirm my city (Asheville) then sign up for emails, but the Asheville page had no deals for today. I set up an account & still no deals, no emails, so I went to a different city on the list…worked for Greenville! :) They email the gift card the next day.

    • lyssibee

      It works for all cities that have Living Social deals (try Atlanta). Keep in mind that if you post it to Facebook or twitter and 3 friends buy the deal through your posted link, you get yours for FREE!! :)

    • Rstorey5

      Not working for macon ga either

      • Rstorey5

        Did what other poster suggested. went to other deals and used atlanta an got it. Thanks for the heads up.

      • Everyonelovesboxers

        Put in Atlanta

    • Chell

      Got it….I am saving all my swagbucks, $$ from online opinion polls, and any deal like this for Christmas. Start saving now !!

    • Alicia

      Don't forget to go through Swagbucks and you'll get 280 Swagbucks for buying it, which may put you close to another AGC.

      • kjmiller

        Wish I'd seen this first!

        • celine

          do it again, i just cancelled my order and reordered through swagbucks

      • Christie

        Went to Swagbucks but they must have removed that offer already. : (

      • Jennifer

        I can't figure out how to go through Swagbucks… I see how to get swagbucks for other livingsocial deals but don't see this particular one.

      • Celine

        thank you for that info, i just got 280 swagbucks on top of my card

    • Tsipipay

      Thanks! I got mine.

    • Ajladd

      Orlando and Columbus both work as well.

    • Tamela

      How do you receive your money

      • Jo

        You should get an email tomorrow with your gift card information

        • Campclan7

          Thank you so much

    • Kelley

      Can I use the Amazon gift card to buy a Target gift card from Amazon.com?

      • kjmiller

        Doubt it. Most gift cards can only be used on merchandise. Could be wrong though..

      • rebecca

        No it says that you can not use the gift card to buy another gift card.

    • Dorrietyds

      When this deal started at 1 am I was able to purchase up to 10 and they where going like crazy! Amazon must have caught on and reduced the limit. Hmmm Do you think they will still honor all 10 of mine?

      Also, Living Social is running really slow (Due to this deal I can only imagine LOL). Just keep trying and it will eventually go through. *One other tip – You can register each of your email addresses if you have more than one and purchase a gift card per email address. Might be more work than its worth keeping up with each email address you registered but I thought I would mention it.

      • Guest

        They have started to track purchases with the same credit card just like ticketmaster does :)

      • Morgan

        Unless you used 10 differennt credit cards, they will go back and cancel them. Even if you used different emails.

      • LD

        If living social limit was 10 I dont see why they would not let you . Unless Amazon tells them no then they will not charge you for all 10 . I did not see the item at 1 am so dont know the stipulations on that . Will be interesting to see how it plays out if living social did let people buy up to 10 when they first posted the deal

        • Jess

          The Limit is one :) Always has been. Its just like Groupon you can buy 5 but they will cancel 4 of them. When they have a limit of one.

    • kjmiller

      Boohoo, I could only buy one! I too, would have bought ten or more!!!

    • Leahdpettit

      Awesome! I buy from Amazon all the time!

    • Natalie559

      Love amazon! Great deal! Thanks so much for posting!!!

    • Donna

      AWESOME! I love amazon…just bought mine. Thanks, Jenny! :)

    • Joysdachshunds

      Can you buy more than 1 under different email addresses and then use them together for one purchase through Amazon??

      • LD

        Think you would need to diffrent accts with living social and 2 diffrent cc cards to charge them to or more if you want more . But not sure if you can redeem them on same acct with amazon. but maybe you can . And amazon doesnt allow you to have more than one acct or I should say like you too . lol. They have litterally banned people from there site google it and you will find lots not sure what the real story is behind it all though.

    • Guest

      The problem is Amazon limits how many gift card/codes you can redeem per order. I feel sorry for people who purchased more than1. Have to remember companies have got smarter in the recession.

      • june

        Where was that info? I read the “fine print” and didn't see that there is a limit to this particular gc.(other than the purchase limit of 1, but nothing about a redemption limit) And Amazon does not have a limit of how many gc's that you can use per order. I've not paid cash for any purchases since I started swagbucks.

        • Guest

          I never been able to use more than one gift card per order but maybe it depend on value of gift card. I been using Amazon since they started.

          • LD

            I put in my gift cards into my acct as I get them from a person swags another site or this and it just racks them up and I use them on any order depending on total it uses my gift cards up first . Never have I have them deny a gift card because I already have one. Now the promotional codes are diffrent . depending on the kind you can only use one towards that item . But have used more than one on a order but each one is for diffrent items . I have used Amazon since they had only sold books and nothing else. Not sure how long ago that was and dont want to know lol .

      • Tasha

        I'm pretty sure that with Amazon, a GC is not the same as a discount coupon code. I can go now and enter the numbers from any GC's that I might hold, and the credit is then applied to my account. I can then use that credit in one order, or in fifteen orders.
        Oh, and I've also been able to stack the 20% off diaper coupons, as long as they start with different letters, so I'm not sure this really even applies to all coupon codes.

    • Guest

      So the link you shared that many people click on. Does that me southernsaver got her for free without telling us she getting money when you click on the link?

      • thriftymotherof3

        Not sure what you are asking here.

      • Laurakc181

        First off – Jenny is amazing and anything she gets for a good deal (even free) is good for her. Do you realize how much work goes into updating a blog like this? I tried to do my own and it takes almost all my time just to get the deals, more or less to share them with others too! She is an amazing person and anyone who tries to make her sound anything less….well, just know that even if she did get hers for free – there is nothing wrong with that! :) And I say this in the nicest tone I can possibly say it in :)

        • JB

          Great site. As I am aware there are law she has to follow :) She should be stating if it a link she going to be paid or get anything for free :) Many site do follow these when they post a link :) I for one does not click on any links without the wording.

          • Nikki

            Her disclosure is at the bottom AND it's called Affiliate Disclosure. She doesn't have to put it in every post just on the site!

          • Beth

            For goodness sake just be quiet.

          • Donna

            She doesn't hide anything and she's following the law because she does have a disclosure. It's not required to put it on every link! If you don't want these deals, just don't click on the links then!

            Jenny does all this work on her own time and doesn't get paid a salary even though I'm sure she puts in almost as many hours as a “real” job. Many of us are more than happy that she might get a little bit back by us clicking on her links! This site is worth so much and saves thousands of people thousands of dollars.

      • Tasha

        Jenny has never tried to hide the fact that she makes money from this website. How in the world do you think these bloggers are able to spend the time and energy that they do to find us these great deals??? If you click on a link from here and buy something, she likely gets paid something for that. I for one and more than happy to contribute to the livlihood of this great place so that she can be sure to continue helping me and so many others find these awesome deals, and all without taking any extra money out of my pocket!
        (Of course, I'm also someone who believes in the Golden Rule. Treat others as you wish to be treated, and such. I'm more than happy to help others when/where I can, as I know that in times when I need help, there is always someone there to help me in some way, even if it's just to cheer me up, get me in a better mood, so that I can think clearer and more easily find a way out of the bad spot!)

      • GudGrammar

        Let's use English, people.

        • Btronning


      • Grateful for Jenny

        I would have never known about this deal had she not posted it and it's likely you would not have either so instead of being upset with her, why not just be grateful that she shared it with us!

        • Kelly

          You can get the deals at 12:01 on yahoo deals if your cities there by the way.

      • Jen B.

        I barely understand what you're trying to say because of typos but Jenny does us a huge service by posting all of these wonderful things on her website. She DESERVES compensation. I can't believe that anyone would complain or criticize her site.

      • Danielle

        Seems like there are alot of people lately that are being critical of this great service that Jenny (and her helpers) provide to us. I hope they all get free items for their hard work. What difference does it make if they get a commission from the people who use the links posted here? I would gladly pay Jenny for this service, even though I run into problems like others with coupons running out, links not working, or my own stupidity reading things wrong, Southernsavers has saved my family so much money by providing this service. Not only do I get the necessities my family needs I am also able to make so many contributions to the local food bank that I could not afford to do previously. I really wish there was some way to block all of these rude people from this website. Jenny (and helpers) thank you so much for all of your hard work. It is greatly appreciated from this Georgia household.

      • cblakefl

        I sure hope so!

      • Freemn4

        She gets paid? I am soooooo glad to hear that!!! She works a full-time job putting this site together and I appreciate her efforts so much! I just returned from a couple local stores and got several free items thanks to Jenny! I never expected to have so much fun saving money with couponing. I tell anyone who is interested in how great the deals are on here! Thanks Jenny!!!

    • Everyonelovesboxers

      I got the gift card but the three emails I entered has not went through to the person I emailed. Does it take a while for them to get it?

    • Kardomr

      does this work like groupon…where after you purchase they email you a certificate?

    • HT

      Excellent! Thank you

    • Southmom3kids

      I didn't get a confirmation email. Will that come tomorrow with the gift card? I kind of expected a confirmation email right away. Oh, and when does it show up that someone signed up using your link?

    • Jenn

      As always, thank you Jenny.

    • Partyof9

      I just have to say, I get very annoyed when people complain about anything Jenny does. She, and her team, work incredibly hard to help the rest of us save money.
      We do not pay her anything for this service! I don't really care how she gets reimbursed for her time via ads or whatever, I am just thankful that she does get some reimbursement! Plus! If you know anything about her, you know SHE GIVES BACK through charities, even though she certainly is not obligated to do so. I am soooo thankful for Southern Savers!!! I would never have time to coupon otherwise.

    • lizzyd

      For some reason my Swagbucks, isn't showing that i purchased it through them…
      Does it take a while to show up or did I do something wrong? thanks

    • Mlmmah

      I'm glad Jenny can get paid or benefit in some way for such hardwork, because I know that I have benefited and saved so much from her!! Thank you Jenny!

    • Kerri L

      Got mine!! Thanks for the heads up!

    • Mrs_Hawkins

      I can't figure out how to get the deal. I don't see anything for it.

    • Abrshafer

      Just got mine! Yeah. My city is Chattanooga and it worked fine!

      • Hallie1200

        I am in chatt too, how do I do it?

    • Samantha

      Thanks so much! I had 3 friends buy the deal, so I get it for FREE! Whoot! Thanks so much for all you do Jenny!

    • PaulaB

      I joined amazon mom and if you sign up for auto order, you get 30% off diapers. Add this to this $10 off and you get Pampers Cruisers for 14 cents each. That's the best price I've ever gotten at the drug stores with coupons and sales. I wouldn't do it for Huggies though, since you can get those for under 10 cents each at the drug stores.

      • Mel

        You should also try ordering from diapers.com. You can buy $3 credits for Pampers products with 150 Pampers Gifts To Grow points. And you can use 2 credits per product. So a jumbo pack that would normally be $11.50 will come down to $5.50. You can also mail in coupons. I just did and got another $1.50 off per pack that way. They also had a promo going where you’d get 30% of your purchase back in a credit towards your next purchase. Not sure if that’s still going or not but then that would bring the price of your second order down even more!

      • Amy

        I got a whole bunch of pampers at RA for less than .99 for a jumbo pack. Also, when the baby outgrows the size I exchange the free huggies at the drugstores for a box of pampers. So far I have spent about 50 dollars on 3400 diapers since last July.

        • Emily

          Do you mainly get coupons from the paper and online printables and then just wait for the really good deals? I'd love any tips as I'm stocking up for baby #1.

      • Annhorton09

        Where do you get Huggies for under 10 cents?

    • Ashley

      I was going to buy from someone's link on here, but now it's disappeared?

    • Eparisher

      Just bought mine too. Woohoo!

    • Mkbaker

      Thank you for all your great finds! Appreciate everything you post!!

    • Nocurtain

      i signed up at living social earlier today, but have not yet seen this deal in my inbox or on their website for purchase. how long does it take to pop up? will it come in my inbox or on their site? thanks for the help! this is an amazing deal. :)

      • Chazree

        when I submitted my info it popped right up on my screen.

    • Studyalldaypartyallnight

      when you get one with my account then one with my husbands, does it matter if we use the same credit card? and when do i get the email? immediatly or at mid night?or when? sorry but i am new to using this site and was wanting to buy something on amazone for $40 can we get two and use both to buy that one item?

      • Ashley

        From what I read you need 2 different credit cards or they will cancel the 2nd one you try to buy on the same card.

    • Lmgleaton

      I ordered mine today!!!

    • Susanbax

      Thanks for the tip!! I can always use a amazon GC!

    • CTaylor

      Thanks Jenny!! =)

    • Amy

      If you go through swagbucks you get 280 SB! I got mine!

      • Kb

        what? explain…

      • Allyg24

        me too!

    • Samantha

      I don't have any emails from them in my inbox this morning and I purchased this yesterday??? Anyone else?

      • Sampanes

        same here. I checked on my living social account page and my credit card still has not been charged. Hopefully by this afternoon.

        • Southmom3kids

          I know, I'm thinking maybe tonight or this afternoon. I haven't received an email either, but I did check my living social and the change I did notice was the last four digits of my CC was showing up now so maybe they are working on processing it. I can't believe how many they were selling!

          • Donna

            Oh, I'm glad to see I'm not losing my mind – I didn't get an e-mail and it still shows pending on my account too. Wow – that's a lot of gift cards! I guess they're just running behind getting them all processed. I'll try to be patient! :)

    • Laura

      I bought mine at 6pm and entered email addresses of 5 friends. At midnight none of my friends had received my referral email. As of now they still haven't so that part never worked for me. I haven't received a confirmation email for my purchase but when I log in to my account it still shows as pending.

      The site already said 890k sold when I bought mine and I was shocked they had not put a sold out sign on it. I see this morning they finally put up the sold out sign at 1.3 million sold.

      Giving 1.3 mil folks $10 off means they lost 10.3 million dollars on this deal. I can't believe they let it go that far!

      • Southmom3kids

        You know that some people will spend more money. That's how they make money. I think it's smart business. Also, how many people know about living social now? Amazon bought living social. How many more people are going to keep buying deals from them? Tons! They are just making more money.

    • Nettehjr

      I cannot seem to get in to order this…..why??

    • Nettehjr


    • Victorian-lady

      I never got my confirmation email and I don't know how to sign on or where now.

      • couponmama

        I too didn't get an email, but I logged on to living social, clicked my account & my deals, and it showed it as purchased, gave me the gift card #. Later, I also got the email. I think they were just slammed. :)

    • jessc5

      Recieve my Deal today! Whooo Hoo!!! I used a $10 Visa Card that I won on Huggies and turned it into $20 on Amazon…AND went through Swagbucks and have enough to get another $5 gc for Amazon! Now let's see if I can save it or if I'll spend it before the weekend. :/

    • Pam

      My e-mail came through at 8:50 this morning (I am in SC). I was able to apply it to my amazon account and plan to buy a DVD set for half-price today….YAY!

    • jen

      I got my email confirm saying to log in and it will give me if I click and follow and then it will apply it to my amazon account… thing is I'm not ready to buy anything yet. Do I just let it sit in my living social account or do I apply it to my amazon account and let it sit there?

      • 3monkeysmom

        I am wondering about this too. I wanted to save it along with saving up Swagbucks to use for Christmas gifts. Will you let me know if you find anything out? I don't want it to expire….Thanks!!!

      • 3monkeysmom

        Nevermind…did a little research :) Go ahead and follow the link from your email. Apply it to your Amazon account and it will stay there until you're ready to use it. It doesn't expire :)
