Do you Use Text Message Coupons?

Text CouponsWhy Text Coupons vs. Email Coupons?

I get so many emails on different promotions and discount codes but rarely have the time to look through them all, so I end up missing the great deals. However, if I get a text message with a simple code to give at the store or online, I use them much more frequently! They do not bombard you with text messages. It’s a simple text stating the promotion that they are offering to subscribers and its usually around 5 a month.

Example

Perfect example: Around Easter, I am super busy and have not been able to check my email, but I ALWAYS have my phone. I was out shopping for my girls’ Easter dresses and shoes and remembered that yesterday I had gotten texts from Bealls and Payless Shoes. (Well also other stores, but living in a small town and doing shopping the night before Easter, I was limited to just a few places.) Most stores are having lots of sales already, so at checkout, I got the sale prices and also got an extra 25% off after giving them the discount code at checkout! If I had not subscribed to get text message coupons, then I would of missed out on my extra savings!

It’s SIMPLE

It is so simple to subscribe. Send a simple one word text to the number I have provided for you, and then you are ready to receive your discounts! After signing up, it states how many text messages you will receive in a month. I have also included a few where you have to enter your cell phone number on the website, and then they send a text confirming. Text message rates apply so if you have an unlimited usage plan on your cell phone, then coupons via text is perfect for you!

Easy to STOP

If you get text coupons that you don’t use,  just text a single word and all text messages will stop!!! When signing up, and with every promotion they send, it gives specific directions on how to unsubscribe.

Huggies Rewards: Are Generic Diapers Really Saving You Money?

17 Mar

imageRaising a family is one of the biggest joys in my life! We all know that having kids also means lots of added expenses, so I am constantly looking for ways to pinch a penny. Is generic diapers really saving you money? Would you like to be rewarded for the baby products you buy?

Generic VERSUS Name Brand Diapers

After having my third child, I Generic vs brand diapershave finally learned what works best when it comes to purchasing diapers. If I had known back when my first child was born what I know now, I would have made different choices that would of made things so much easier!

Generic Diapers: More diaper changes

When using the generic diapers, I found myself having to change my daughter more often during the day because they are not as absorbent. Changing her more often is not a big deal, I was just using more of the generic diapers. So when I thought I was saving, in reality I was spending about the same.

Generic: Night Time Diaper Changes

Once I put my daughter to sleep, I want her to sleep as long as possible. When she wakes up in the middle of the night, the last thing I want to do is change a wet diaper. Not because I don’t want to take time to do it, but because it wakes her up more, making it more difficult to get her back to sleep.

In my experience, generic diapers always leak in the middle of the night, which leads to frequent night time diaper changes. So I was buying Huggies diapers to use at night and generic diapers during the day. Was I really saving money by using the generic? Since I was having to buy two different brands of diapers, I was actually spending about the same amount had I just bought all Huggies diapers.

HuggiesName Brand Diapers

Everybody has a preference when it comes to diapers whether its the texture, how it fits, or how it looks. All the name brands that I have used all work well and are about the same price. So it all comes down to the name brand name you decide to purchase. For me it was Huggies!

Why Huggies?

If all the name brand diapers work well and about the same price, why not choose the one that offers rewards and get rewarded on things you already buy?

Huggies Family Rewardsimage

This is a program where you get rewarded on the products you buy! When you purchase a Huggies product that has the Family Rewards Symbol, there is a sticker inside with a number on it. After signing up on the Huggies website, you enter the number on the sticker and you get points added to your account. Once you have accumulated points, you can redeem your points for rewards! I am personally trying to save my points for a $50 amazon credit, Fitness magazine, and the musical instruments for my daughter.

Time Saver Tip

I keep a basket on the counter. This is where I put all my codes for rewards and when I have accumulated 5-10, then I enter codes at one time. I participate in several award programs, so this saves TIME!!

Have you Heard of the Money Saver Store No More Rack?

I don’t know how I found this online store, but it is a GREAT place to find awesome deals, so I thought I would share…..

I have ordered a couple of things and looking forward to order more! You can buy anything from electronics, accessories for android and IPhone, sheets, bedding, organizers, clothing for men and women, toys, much MoRE!! ALL AT HUGE DISCOUNTED PRICES!!

My Experience

Just to give you an idea of the store, I bought these earrings and necklace and was super happy with the quality!!

Nomorerack earrings

Do you want to know the best part?

They were only $5.00, original price was $199!!! I was wanting a pair of diamond earrings, not the real thing, to wear everyday. I have to be careful with my earrings because I have sensitive ears and they get infected if I wear jewelry that does not have sterling silver or real gold post. Being a stay at home mom, I do not change out my earrings very often so I wanted a pair that I could leave in and even sleep in without my ears getting infected! These were perfect!! I keep them in all day and sleep in them and you can’t beat the price. I haven’t worn the necklace yet, but next time I get dressed up, the necklace dresses up the earrings to wear for a special night out!

Here is something else that I am interested in from Nomorerack, just to give you an idea of the discounts!
