Free $10 Aveda Gift Card by Making Wish List

Hey folks,

Happy Christmas holidays to all of you. I just came across this Aveda offer from a friend. Aveda's Canadian stores are giving away 10$ gift cards. You just need to go into any Aveda store in the country and add 5 items or more to a wish list.

Then, you need to give the advisor the names, email addresses, or phone numbers of anyone you want them to notify of your wish list. It can be just one person that you want to notify.
When you receive your your new gift card, you can use it on anything in Aveda stores. Many Aveda products cost less than $10!

Earn Gift Cards by Using ForwardOn.com

Hi folks:
Last week I started using a new service called ForwardOn.com. When you join this website, you will have the ability to forward interesting emails to friends and family.

You just forward any fun email (videos, funny pictures, etc.) to share@forwardOn.com. You can then earn points every time the email is viewed by other users on forwardOn.

They also give you 5000 free points for new members on the signup page (good for almost $5 in rewards). When you hit 10000 points, you can redeem for gift cards such as $10 Amazon gift cards, and even gift cards for diverse retailers such as Old Navy, Macy's, and Borders.

I am closing in on my first 10000 points and I plan on getting a $10 itunes gift card with it.

RBC Rewards Points (Royal Bank) Offer to get 50% Bonus British Airways Miles

RBC Rewards (Royal Bank) currently has a special limited time offer to get 50% Bonus British Airways Miles when you convert the RBC Rewards to British Airways Miles. When the RBC Rewards points are converted to BA Miles (British Airways Miles) between 3 November and 31 December 2008, you’ll receive 50% bonus points.

The minimum points need to transfer is 10000 RBC Rewards Points. So 10,0000 RBC Rewards points would get you 15,000 BA Miles during this promotional offer period.

This offer is awesome!! I currently have 20,000 RBC Rewards points and I plan to convert them to get 30,000 BA Miles. The 30,000 BA Miles would almost be enough to get a round trip from Toronto to London.

Free Paypal Shipping Code (Credit) for ebay Users

I received an email from ebay that gave me free shipping if I paid for an ebay auction using Paypal. You might be able to use the code also.

Basically, it is a FREE SHIPPING code (up to $10) that is valid on the purchase of any item. A user can use this code UP TO THREE TIMES PER ACCOUNT.

When you buy an item on ebay, you need to pay with Paypal and enter the Paypal redemption code: CJUNE10SHIP. If your ebay account qualifies, you can use this code for 3 different ebay purchase and receive up to a $10 shipping credit when you pay for an ebay auction or Instant Purchase ("Buy It Now") with Paypal. This offer is good until June 30, 2008 11:59:59 P.M.
You need to also make sure the email address on your eBay account is also the same on your PayPal account for this to work.

This offer is available only to ebay members who have received an email for this promotion. However, if you didn't get the email and want to try using this code anyway, here is a neat trick to test if the Paypal code "CJUNE10SHIP" works or not:

  • "Everyone: If you're not sure whether or not this code applies to you, do a search for "immediate payment" with Buy it Now and within a specific price range. In the link I gave, you can click on any of the auctions, make sure the auction payment for Buy it Now requires immediate payment. If it does, you can click Buy it Now, click the button to say that you will be using a Paypal code on the payment, then log into your Paypal account.
  • Do not submit the payment! At the bottom of the payment screen, you'll be able to apply promotional codes to your Paypal account, if you click apply and it works, the code is enabled on your account!"

Free $10 iTunes Gift Cards (Certificates) from themoviespoiler.com

I came across this interesting offer from the guy running the website themoviespoiler.com. On his site, he advertises "For the next few months I'm rewarding the submitters with a $10 iTunes gift certificate for every FULL spoiler THAT I USE! GOT SPOILERS? Send them in!" His website is
http://www.themoviespoiler.com/. This offer should be valid for rest of this summer and fall.

Please be aware that he does have some guidelines for writing the movie spoilers, such as:
"If you've seen a CURRENT movie that I haven't yet spoiled and want to write your own spoiler, then feel free to send it to me and I'll put it up for you. All I ask is that you don't "review" the movie, just explain what happens...". It looks pretty good. Maybe, I'll submit a spiler for Adam Sandler's movie "Zohan" and hope that it gets accepted.

Free Samples from Qualityhealth.com

I count myself lucky that I can find so many free samples on the internet and around town. This morning I picked up a coupon for free Gillette Mach 3 razors. These were given out by the Gillette people in the downtown business district.

I've also made a habit of checking out Qualityhealth.com, the website that gives out health and consumer-related products. Recently, they were giving out free samples of Colgate toothpastes. Their new promotion is giving out a free trial pair of Acuvue Contact lenses - https://www.qualityhealth.com/psp/campaign.jspa

out their short survey. After you fill out the survey, you should receive coupons (for more free samples) sent to your email address.

Free Desktop Firewall Program from Webroot ($20 Value)

Security on the Internet is a very important topic these days. I was evaluating different firewall programs for my Windows XP PC when I came across a free offer from Webroot. Webroot is giving away their desktop firewall program for free. The program is worth $19.95 but it is free for now. The program can be downloaded at

I ran the program on my Windows XP machine and put the program through its paces and it works pretty well. It blocked most ports while I was surfing. This program uses up more resources than my D-Link firewall router but hey, it is a Windows program. It is free so its features are more basic than say McAfee's firewall product. But all in all, Webroot's desktop firewall program is ideal for computers or offices that aren't heavy users of the internet or that don't have a hardware firewall available.

Sign up for Quaker® Moms Care Club and Receive Free Quaker Products

My mom has only started using the internet for a short period so she amazed me when she showed me about Quaker's Moms Care Club promotion. Basically, when you sign up for Quaker's email list, it will add you to the Moms Care Club. The Moms Care Club periodically sends free Quaker products and coupons to its members. According to Quaker: "As a member, you'll get a sneak peek at new Quaker products and the latest product news, notice of promotions and instant wins, discount coupons and more.

To sign up and be eligible for Quakers Moms Care, go to this link http://www.quakersnackbars.com/subscriptions/default.aspx and be sure to select the check boxes that say "Free trials and coupons" and "Quakers Moms Care".

I read that some of the coupons given away include coupons for free " Simple Harvest All Natural granola bars" and "Morning Minis" products.

Grow your Own Herbs and Vegetables and Save Lots of Money!

Today's hot deal has an environmental focus. Recently, I wanted to do more in my household and also help heal this planet. I wanted to reduce household waste and also reduce my Greenhouse gas emissions.

I tried different things in my house and discovered the fun of growing some of my own vegetables and herbs. I realized that if I could grow even a small fraction of the vegetables and herbs that I eat, I could save a lot of money on my grocery bills.

I started small. I found that some of the vegetables that I buy at the supermarket still contain roots that can be replanted. For example, when you buy green onions, spinach, leeks, butter lettuce, alfalfa sprouts, radishes, parsley, or cilantro at the grocery store, you'll find that they will still have roots attached to them. These vegetables are still living plants. So you can simply cut off the root part of these plants and replant them in a pot filled with potting soil.

By replanting the roots of vegetables that I bought from the store, I have accumulated green onions, alfalfa sprouts, and spinach plants growing in planters at home. My next step is to buy some seeds of tomatoes, onions, garlic, and celery and plant them outdoors. Spring has finally arrived and it is finally time to grow some vegetables outdoors.

Some benefits of growing your own vegetables and herbs include:
· Reducing carbon emissions used to transport vegetables that you normally buy at the supermarket
· Saving lots of money by growing part of your own food supply
· Healthier to eat vegetables that you grow yourself (fewer pesticides and chemicals used)
· Growing your own food is a fun and stimulating hobby. And you'll also get some exercise.

Tips on growing your own vegetables:
· Start a compost as a complement to your vegetables. The compost can be used as a rich natural fertilizer for your vegetable and herbs and it will also reduce your household's waste going to landfills. Compost used as fertilizer will also save you lots of money!
· Use as little commercial fertilizer as possible. The production of Nitrogen-based fertilizers contribute to global warming. Again, organic fertilizer from compost is recommended over commercial fertilizer.
· You can grow vegetables all year-round by planting them in small pots indoors (close to a light source). During the spring and summer, you can also plant more vegetables and herbs in your backyard.
· To read more tips about growing different vegetables, check out these resources:

Some Tips to Save Money and More

Hey folks. It is almost spring time and tax time. It's time to clean up the house again, file those income taxes and find new ways to save money at the same time. In this vein, here are some of my own ways to save money and make my dollars go further:

1. Use a rewards or cash-back credit card to get back some money for the money that I spend.
2. Brown bag my lunch during the week
3. Deposit any extra money into a high interest savings account. You'd be surprised how compound interest in savings accounts (ranging from 3% to 5% interest) can really add up!
4. Take public transit rather than drive.
5. Turn off any unnecessary appliances and lights.
6. Buy sale-priced items, bulk items, and use coupons when shopping for groceries.
7. Subscribe to internet, cable tv, and phone services through the same company and take advantage of bundled discounts.
8. Split the cost of coffee with your co-workers rather than buy a fancy capuccino every day.
9. Use a discount brokerage rather than a full-service brokerage and save on trading fees.
10. Use a good tax software program or talk to an accountant in order to maximize your yearly tax deductions.

There you have it...you have just read my own list of ways to save money. If you want to find more ways to save money, check out this list of "25 Ways to Save Money" - http://www.milliondollarjourney.com/25-ways-i-save-money.htm

Free Intuit Quickbooks Software for a Limited Time

Happy New Year, everybody!! I hope that all of you will have a happy and prosperous new year.

The first offer that I found in this young new year is a free and legal download of Quickbooks Simple Start 2008. I have used a Quickbooks in the past and I found it to be the easiest bookkeeping and accounting software solution for my personal needs. The Simple Start software is great for business uses and it will also be useful for home and personal use. In the past, older versions of Simple Start sell for $60 or more, but you can get it for free through Intuit's and HP's promotion. You can download it for free at http://qbgdm.intuit.com/CMC12479/hpcatalogue1/index.html?cid=hpfreeoffer9&priorityCode=4265458076
