I am starting a new goal of having a free “present” for every bill in my mailbox.  Who cares about the water bill when you get a free bottle of shampoo!  Really it makes it all more fun in the long run.

A few treats for today:

Free Sample – Orville Redenbacher Cheddar Cheese Popcorn (thanks Beth!)

Free Sample – Suave Professional Shampoo.

Free Sample – John Freida Frizz-Ease Smooth Start Hair Care

      The cheddar Cheese Popcorn offer not available in FL?

      • Emily

        We don't have a Kroger store here. Guess that's why we can't get the freebie.

        • Lucy

          Yea, I was also upset about that. The freebie is only available in certain states, but not in Florida :(

    • Julie

      Love it! My son looks forward to getting the mail for me just to see what kind of 'treats' we got :)

    • kelly1369

      Thank you!

    • Lisa

      Between the samples and the rebate checks, I have started looking forward to getting the mail again. Before I stumbled on your site and started couponing, I would just leave the mail in the box for a couple of days – it was never anything but bills anyway.

    • ChefLezlie

      I love that goal! I live on simple pleasures just like that! :-)

    • I love freebies! Seems like I've been getting a lot in the mail lately, just yesterday I got a free small sample size of soap, a free sample size of Puffs and a coupon in the mail for a free Vitamin Water, as well as a coupon for $1 off an organic product. I look forward to getting the mail now to see all the samples and freebies I get! Plus, a few days ago I got my free FULL size bottle of Aveeno lotion! Can't beat that. I love all the health and food freebies!

      • WynetteC

        sounds like I sign up for almost the same things you do, but no sign of aveeno and no clue if I ever signed up for it or not

    • Courtney

      Thanks Jenny! I love this idea!

    • Lisa

      We've tried the cheddar cheese popcorn and my kids love it!

    • Andrea

      Thank you, Jenny. Love the popcorn cheddar!

    • Jamie

      I like that idea!! I was so excited when I checked the mail today….I had a bottle of Aveeno lotion!

    • kbribelin

      got em all! thanks!

    • no bills yesterday…just one FULL-SIZE bottle of Aveeno Stress Relief lotion (which was much needed yesterday!), one full size package of gum and a sample package of dog treats! YAY!

      • Christi

        I got that in my mail too! And I also, was in much need of stress relief – what a welcome surprise :)

      • Loran

        How did you get the Aveeno lotion? That sounds awesome!

    • Robin

      I love these posts with the free samples almost as much as HT triples! <3 Was everyone else THRILLED to get that full size bottle of Pantene?

    • Christy Myers

      Also not available in NC even though we have Kroger here. Oh well.

      Make sure that you check the state for Kroger before you type all of your info in .

    • hoverath5

      Got a free bottle of Aveeno yesterday! How awesome!! Thanks so much for all the great info on this website.

    • Loran

      How do you get the free Aveeno lotion everyone's talking about?

    • WynetteC

      Jenny’s original post about the Aveeno posted on Feb. 9, 2010:

      Notice all the posted comments about the website issues or errors that day. I vaguely remember the website going slow and saying it wasn’t worth that hassle.

    • Solmom13

      What is the website to get the free Aveeno lotion?

    • sfkiefer5821

      I am new to couponing. In March I went to Big Lots to buy the three $1 Olay body washes as suggested on the Southern Savers website and then submitted for the $15 rebate. Just got the request denied back in the mail stating “Your request did not include the correct UPC(s) required for the promotion”. I am confused – the offer was available for Olay body washes. Can anyone offer advice as to what I can do next to receive the rebate?

    • Lynn

      Love your idea!! I've been trying to get “freebies” & “coupons” every week, but you've got me beat by every day!LOL It really does get your mood better…it's like, well I get the bill but LOOK WHAT ELSE I GOT! Way to go..Let us know how you do in your daily posts. I'm a subscriber and so excited for you.
