Mom Magazine & Princess Audrey

I was so excited that FedEx dropped off a great (unexpected) box of goodies yesterday.  It was a great pick me up after breaking my foot on Wednesday!  I love free goodies and thanks to my growing following the freebies are getting bigger and better.  As always I love to share the goodies.  I was able to snag this great blogger pack through BSM Media.  If you are a mommy blogger I urge you to check them out.  The opportunities they keep sending my way have made many people happy!  I was excited to receive a free subscription of Mom magazine, but had 100% forgotten about it (from February)!  I love magazines and FREE magazines.  I would have been happy with the magazine alone, but the folks at Mom put together a great promo pack for all of the bloggers that are participating.

This pack knocked my socks off.  There are MANY amazing products in the gift pack and I will spend some time blogging about my favorites this week.  My opinions are my own, but I think it is best to tell everyone that I was given a heap of goodies for free! 

This box also arrived during a week that has been filled with planning Princess Audrey's Benefit.  For more info on our princess CLICK HERE to visit her Caringbridge page.  I plan on adding many of the items from this package to several raffle gift baskets.  If you are in the Champlain Valley area please mark your calendar and come out to support this wonderful family.  On Sunday 8/29, the grounds of The Assumption of Mary Church in Redford will be transformed into one huge Warm Fuzzy for Princess Audrey and her family.  The event will be held from 11am-6pm.  Check out the Facebook Event Page for all of the details.  There will be a spaghetti dinner, hotdogs/michigans, kiddie carnival, auctions, raffles, and an array of live entertainment.  The Bull and Napper families have been strong supporters of many great causes.  Now is the time for our community to give back and help them through the rough patch they are going through.

Weekly Cinema- a fantastic deal!

Weekly Cinema

CLICK HERE to check out Weekly Cinema.  I just joined and I am looking forward to this one!  Right now they are offering 1 FREE movie ticket and 3 tickets per month for a monthly membership fee of $15.99 per month.

You can purchase tickets via Fandango every month.  Both local theaters in Plattsburgh NY (Cumberland 12 and Regal) are part of the 16000 national theaters in the Fandango network.  I have purchased tickets through them on several occasions and the printable tickets are a breeze to use!

They are also throwing in Popcorn vouchers at the moment.  There ticket values are high and these monthly credits can be used to purchase 3D and Imax movie tickets.  Monthly Cinema makes family movie night much more affordable!

I love  CLICK on the picture to visit  Their gift certificates make excellent gifts.  My sister was always thrilled when I would send her $100 worth of certificates.  We have been buying certificates for over a year and I think between the 2 of us we have cashed in 15 of them.  There are bigger and better offers all of the time.  This week they are having a good sale.  Today is the last day to use the coupon code above.  Starting 7/23 you can use coupon code PLATE for an even better deal- $25 certificates for $2! Here are my favorite local restaurants:
  • Cafe Mooney Bay in Plattsburgh $25 gift certificate is valid on a $50 dinner purchase.
  • Pizza Putt in Burlington VT $25 gift certificate is valid on a min. purchase of $35. Minimum 2 entrees. Valid for Dine In ONLY. Excludes: Holidays/Special Events, Other Offers/Promotions.
  • HoJo's Lake Placid NY $25 gift certificate is good on any $35 food order.

Sam's Club Gift Card Contest

I love the Box Tops For Education Program.  Every year PTA/PTO groups across the country collect, sort, and organize these great campaigns.  Price Chopper always does a great job with their promotion of this great General Mills program.  This year Sam's club is jumping into the game.

The school year will be here before we know it.  Sam´s Club is offering several promotions to multiply your Box Top Points from Aug. 11 through Aug. 31.  Stock up on your favorite back to school items and earn more cash for your school. At the Sam´s Club Back-to-School event, you can get a head start on your collection and find 6 Box Tops on participating General Mills products. With your favorite Box Tops for Education brands at a great value, Sam´s Club is your one-stop destination for all your back-to-school supplies you need to send your kids off to school with confidence!

Sam's Club and My Blog Spark were nice enough to upgrade my membership to a "Plus Membership".  There are several perks to this great program, but my favorite features are the added "coupon like" discounts and extended shopping hours.  They were also nice enough to send me a $25 gift card to help me get a jump start on my Box Top donations.
