New In: Freebies and Bargains

I have gotten a lot of great freebies and bargains lately, so, it seems that I'm long over due for a freebies and bargain post.


These cute little sandals from H&M were FREE!  They are possibly one of my greatest bargain snags to date!  Neshaminy Mall sent me an online survey that promised a $10 gift card, so I completed it and scored $10 free.  At the mall, I was looking for some little summer sandals.  These fit the bill, and were priced at $12.95.  So, with my gift card, I expected to pay $3.  Not a bad deal!

Oh but it gets better....

At the register, the sandals rang up $5 on clearance... AND all the clearance was buy one get one free!!!  My sister got a little two-pack of panties as the BOGO deal. So, I got these sandals, panties for my sister, and still have $5 of free money on my card. How awesome is that???

I won these two chocolaty-brown Nicole for OPI polishes from a Dove chocolate giveaway on Facebook. The prize also included a coupon for a free Dove chocolate bar-yum!

Wet 'N Wild always offers $1-off coupons, making their 99 cents items FREE.  I got these two colors free with coupons at CVS. If I keep getting these deals, pretty soon I'll own every color!

I won this full-sized Weleda Pomegranate lotion from their Facebook giveaway.

Free lotion samples that I requested by mail: Jergens BB Body, and Suave Moroccan Infusion.

A free sample of Pantene shampoo and conditioner.

Samples of John Frieda shampoo/conditioner and Garnier Fructis Marvelous Oil.

I scored all of these for free in a "Start Sampling" box.  I like medicine samples like the Tums and Breathe Right strips, because they are great to keep around in case someone in my house gets sick.  Because of free samples, I have a little medicine stash in case of emergencies.  I also got this Garnier Fructis Damage Eraser Sample, and best of all, a free Colgate tooth brush!

These are random samples.  I grabbed a Gucci cologne sample for my BF, Burberry Brit and a body splash for me.  The L'Oreal Pore Vanisher, Garnier 5 Second Blur, and Olay came in my free magazines-so double win there! I also got this Tide sample, and a coupon for a free full-sized bottle of Suave. I'm going to give the Suave to my BF.

Some vitamin samples...Zarbees natural allergy relief, Heliocare, and all the rest are from AI Sports Nutrition.  I'm not sure if these AI Sports products are a sample pack or a giveaway, because it seems really generous for just a sample!

I also picked up some things for free with coupons at CVS.  This Almay eye makeup remover was free with coupons and Extra Care Bucks. (Sorry, I used it before taking the pic!)

 This Colgate Optic White toothpaste was free at CVS after Extra Care Bucks and coupons.


This sporty white watch was just $2.50 on Ebay, including the shipping from China!  It works great and looks really nice.  It also comes in other bright colors.

I found these two skinny belts on sale at Charlotte Russe at Neshaminy Mall.  They were $1.99 for both (so, less than $1 each!) and they are perfect for summer dresses and skater skirts.

 I found this small cross-body handbag on Ebay. It was $4.50-and that's including shipping from China!  Obviously, for just $4.50 it is not top-of-the-line quality, but it is a good-looking bag and perfect for the price.  It almost resembles a small version of the Marc Jacobs Natasha Bag.  It also comes in a variety colors.  I've been pretty satisfied with inexpensive bags that I've purchased from China.  So, if you need a certain color, shape, or style of handbag but don't want to pay a lot for something you won't wear often, Ebay is a great place to look.

 So, have you scored any great freebies or bargains lately?
