Congratulations to the five winners of our Facebook contest. Followers were asked to submit their best holiday deals using How to Shop for Free techniques/coupons/etc. So many of you shared such great bargains and deals that it was hard to pick just five! Thank you to everyone who participated in the contest. I seriously LOVED reading each and every one of your adventures.
After much deliberation, nail-biting and hair-pulling, here are our five amazing winners:
Shawn Workman Delaney – By returning all old cellphones, mp3 players, GPS devices, etc. to Radio Shack, she received a $50 Radio Shack gift card and was able to buy her husband’s Christmas gift for FREE!!! Way to be environmentally conscious while shopping for free!
Lori Williams Benincasa – By combining an in-store sale at Toys-R-Us with $45 cash back from her credit card company and a few other coupons, Lori got a GeoTrax Christmas in Toyland train set down from $129.99 to $35.99. Way to hunt down those great deals!!!
Diane Decowski – By opening up a Sony card and making a purchase, Diane received 20,000 points (equivalent to $200 credit after first use). She then went to BJ’s Wholesale Club, and combining her $200 credit from Sony with BJ’s $50 off coupon, scored a PS3 for $44.99 (originally $294.99). WHAT A DEAL!!!
Donna Russell Saati – By combining her Ebay purchased B1G1 coupons with RiteAid’s B1G1 sale, Donna was able to donate 40 Right Guard deodorants, several packages of disposable razors, 3 blood glucose monitors, 3 lancet devices and 2 packages of Depends underwear to her local Veteran’s Outreach Center. Thanks, Donna, for using your How to Shop for Free skills to pay it forward! Truly heart-warming this holiday season!
Lori Allinder – Lori went to Bath & Body Works and scored a veritable treasure trove of goodies! Armed with just a few coupons, Lori managed to bag over fifteen items whose original cost of $35.96 was whittled down to $12.22. That’s $22.84 in savings. Way to go, Lori!!!
