Free Blockbuster Kiosk Code 4/22 and 4/23

If you use one of the Blockbuster kiosks, you can get a free rental by entering the code THANKYOU.  You still have to return them by 9pm the next day to avoid being charged the $1 rental fee.

I know in Lafayette, the kiosks are at some Speedway gas stations (on 231 and Teal Rd, I believe).  You can find the locations at

Deal Websites

Along with starting to clip coupons, I get loads of emails from different websites about their daily deal.  I never had any idea there were so many.  I also never realized that department stores also had a deal of the day on their sites too.

Now,, we have ordered from and haven't been overly happy with the items we received.  We ordered a Pillow Pet (though, not named that) for Emma for Xmas.  When we got it, it was very small.  Luckily, she is little herself and she didn't care at all.  She was just happy to have a ladybug pillow.  We also ordered a rechargeable WII remote batteries and docking station.  We got an excellent deal on these.  $4.99.  Problem is, one quit working within the first couple of days.

Now, .. we have been happier with.  We got a great deal on a car seat for Kaitlin.  We have also ordered some of their rather amusing t-shirts they have lol.  "It's a trap!"

Some other sites I visit to check out their deals: (they have usually about 5 daily deals and weekly deals also)

Are there any sites you like to check out for things like this?

Couponing .. is that a word?

I'm very new to the coupon world.  It's become sort of a game to see what kind of good coupons I can get though.  With the recent decision for me to stay home with the kids, rather than work .. we need to cut corners where we can.

Dan and I watched Extreme Couponing the other night.  We actually got a fairly good laugh out of the guy we were watching.  I am all for getting stuff free, but who needs 150 years worth of deodorant??!!  After saying he has that much, we watched him buy more!  Umm.. can we say donation???  Can we say care packages for the troops?  I mean, come on!  Then, we also saw him buy 1100 boxes of Total cereal.  At least he did say most of that was going to his local soup kitchen!

I can't ever see me going to the store with a trailer to bring it all home!  lol  But, I am enjoying looking for great deals.
