Get Your Car Cleaned for FREE!

Is your car dirty?  Mine has been filthy for a few months, it seems!  We always have it on the list of things to do each weekend, but there's never enough time.  Well, if you are out and about anywhere near 10400 S. and Bangerter before August 1st, you'll be in luck!  There's a brand new car wash called Star Wash there that is holding an awesome grand opening special!  Right now, you can take your vehicle (or vehicles) as many times as you want before August 1st for a FREE WASH!  We went today, and it was great!  The facility is totally state-of-the-art!  The car wash is a drive-thru, but you put the car in neutral and are pulled through on a track.  It takes three minutes.  The wash and tire shine normally cost nearly $12.00, but you get it for free right now!  My minivan came out cleaner than it ever does at drive-thru places!  And one more thing--all their self-serve vacuums are also free for the grand opening!  So what are you waiting for?  Go get that car clean and spread the word!

A Few Freebies Worth Your Time

If you spend any amount of time checking out online deal blogs, you probably know that some are full of offers for free items, trial samples, and all kinds of goodies (and not-so-good goodies!!).  If you're like me, you probably look at most and have no desire to add your name and contact info to another list.  My sister-in-law and I were talking about this today, and I decided that it was time that I tell you about two offers that really are worth your time and effort.  I only recommend them because I am an enrollee in both, and by the way, I don't receive any commission or referral credit for sharing these with you.  I've just come to enjoy the benefits of both very much, and I think you just might too!

The first great freebie site is Kraft First Taste.  I've been a member of their site for about six months now, and I've received well over $100 in freebies from them.  Now, I'm not talking about useless dryer ball samples, toe fungus gel, or anything like that!  Kraft First Taste sends awesome stuff!  And they don't really even send "stuff".  They send COUPONS!  And so far, almost every coupon I've received from them has been for FREE PRODUCTS!  (All from Kraft, of course!)  I've gotten Oscar Mayer Turkey bacon, Kraft cheese, Kool Aid products, DiGiorno pizza and more for FREE!  You'll love what you get from them--products your family can actually use.  After you try the products, they just ask that you log onto their site to complete a brief survey of your thoughts.  It's simple and so worth the tiny effort for such great free coupons.  Check it out here.  The one trick to keep in mind with Kraft First Taste is that you need to check the website every month or two for new offers.  (I'll give you a heads up here when I notice new offers too!) Any offers available for you will be listed under "My Offers" after you log in.  You select that you want the offers available, and they mail them out to you!  (Once in awhile there are printable offers too.)  That's it!  Give it a try!

The second place for great freebies is Vocal Point.  I've been signed up with Vocal Point for about a year, and their promotions come automatically by mail as they are available.  The great thing about Vocal Point is that they send you a sample of the item (all Proctor & Gamble products) along with great coupons.  There is usually one very high value coupon for you and three or four other great coupons to share with friends and family.  I've been able to get Puff's tissues for almost free, Pantene hair care products, Crystal Light, feminine hygiene products and more.  Their offers always come in neat little packages and are more like gifts than propaganda!  So go here to check them out.  They have lots of forums and areas to check out, but I normally just use Vocal Point for the great offers.

So those are two resources that you may not have considered to get more great deals.  Check them out, and let me know what you think!
