Free Coupons Email Campaign 1/31

Happy Monday! I have already started receiving coupons in the mail. So here are the companies to email today.

Is Paybox a Scam ???

Have you heard about getting $25 for signing up for Paybox? Paybox is suppose to be like Paypal in that it is an online payment service. If you want to sign up, click here to get your $25. But you might want to read the rest of this article first.

I saw a Paybox post on a blog and signed up. You also receive $10 for referrals. After I signed up, I looked at their "blog". Their post on January 31st, has a link for a "training course" that they recommend. That link takes you to a Clickbank product that you can purchase for $37.

Hmm... I don't ever remember Paypal trying to sell me anything! Looking closer this what I found:

* there is no address for this company on their website or blog.
* all account balances are held in Paybox currency. What is Paybox currency? According to Paybox, their currency is "is autonomous and independent of all nations and governments."
* Paybox can discontinue the service at any time without any explanation or notice to you
* PayBox is registered in Montenegro which means it is not subject to US regulations.

Could it be legit? Maybe but I seriously doubt it. I don't think taht I will be getting my $25 in Paybox currency.

Saturday Personal Challenge Link Up !! - Disney World

Do you have something that you want to save for? Maybe a special vacation, something that you would like to buy or a even fitness goal. I have started this linky so we can post our personal challenges and goals. Every week you can post an update about your personal challenge on your blog and then link up here! I am very excited to hear about everyone's challenges!

My Personal Challenge: Paying For Disney World Trip

I love Disney World! I am so excited that my family will be going this summer. I figure that the trip with transportation and meals will cost about $3500.
I have decided to challenge myself to earn that money through blogging, couponing, and rebates. It is a big challenge but I am hoping to pull it off.

I will be giving weekly updates on my progress and a overall monthly update. Maybe you will be inspired to try a challenge of your own.
So what counts towards my goal?

Any income earned through my blog and websites.
Income earned through rebates on items that I would have purchased normally
Free item coupons
Ink catridge recycling
Selling on Ebay
?? other ideas that I come up with

I decided not to include all my coupon savings because I use coupons on a normal basis. If I counted that money towards the Disney World trip, then my regular grocery budget would go up.

In order to get more coupons, I will be starting an email campaign to companies. I will be posting a daily list of the companies that I email so you can join in if you want to. Hopefully, we will get some free coupons and other goodies!

Friday Favorites: My Cuisinart Panini Maker

Did you ever really want an appliance but then when you get it, you never use it? Oh my gosh, that has happened to me! I have appliances that collect dust around my house. BUT not my panini maker!

I absolutely love my panini maker! Why?

Fast & Easy
Easy for teenagers to use (Awesome!)
Economical/Cheap lunches and dinners

I use our panini maker almost everyday. I like to use the Italian bread from the grocery store bakery. It costs $1.99 and makes about 8 sandwiches. The lunch meat cost about $3 a pound and a pound makes more than 8 sandwiches for us. In summer, I like use fresh veggies from the garden to add some extra crunch to the sandwiches. Even plain old grilled cheese sandwiches taste better out of a panini maker.

I have definitely saved money by making cheaper lunches and dinners. If you are looking to save money and time then you should consider a panini maker. You can find panini makers at Walmart, Bed Bath & Beyond (use a coupon!), and Amazon.

Personally I like the Cuisinart panini maker because I think that it is more sturdy and just built better. But you can find cheaper versions. The one pictured above costs

Friday Favorites: Glad Press'n Seal Wrap

I love buying items on sale! I especially love to get meat on discount. Unfortunately I always had a problem with freezer burn. I would use expensive freezer bags and try to get all the air out but it never did the job.

For many years, I thought about buying a foodsaver machine. I loved how the food looked in the commercials: it didn't get freezer burned, cheese didn't mold as easily, and it just looked fresh. But I could never justify buying the machine and then having to pay for the bags to run in machine.

Well, I am happy to say that my problem is solved. I love,love, love the Glad Press'n Seal Wrap. Check out my photos below!

This chicken has been in my freezer for about 2 months. I bought a bunch of chicken when my local store was having a great sale. It looks the same as the day that I put it in the freezer.

Glad makes the Press'n Seal Freezer Wrap and the Press'n Seal Wrap. I have used both of these. The freezer style is a little stronger but you can use the regular Glad Press'n Seal Wrap in the freezer. That is actually what I have used in the photos above. The cost at my store is $2.89 per package (840 feet).

Here a couple of tips for using the Press'n Seal Wrap:
Separating your pieces of meat (as shown with chicken) seals each piece individually.

If you separate your pieces of meat, you can just remove the package and cut off the correct portion size since each piece is sealed individually. This works great with hamburger patties.

Check for the Glad Press'n Seal Wrap at your local store. You can also find the Glad Press'n Seal Wrap and the Glad Press'n Seal Freezer Wrap on Amazon.

Wow! I am amazed at the great customer service from! I had won a gift card through a blog contest last year. So I ordered a Christmas centerpiece for my mom. When the centerpiece arrived, some of the lilies had brown spots and looked wilted. So I emailed the 1-800 Flowers customer service. I mentioned what the flowers looked like and offered to send photos.

The next morning, a new centerpiece was delivered at no cost! I was extremely pleased with the service and the quick correction of problem. I knew that when I was ordering flowers again that I would definitely use 1-800 Flowers.

But, wait! Today I received a letter from 1-800 Flowers apologizing again for any inconvenience. They included a $20 gift card to use on a future purchase.

Wow! I am blown away! This company has shown to me that they want me as a customer and that they want their customers to be happy. From this personal experience, I can highly recommend 1-800 Flowers to everyone! I love that they corrected the flower error immediately. Then they went above and beyond my expectations by sending the gift card!

Way to go 1-800 Flowers! You are a Friday Favorite!
