I received the Childrens cold medicine yesterday. What a amazing freebie and perfect for all the cold and flu bugs going around.

I haven't gotten my mail yet today but it's always a treat! Yesterday I got the first issue of my free SHAPE magazine subscription, and a free coupon for granola bars! This weekend I got the new Olay ProX Sample ($30 value) , with five $10 off coupons. Books, magazines, free food, toys, medicine, coupons OH MY! Keep 'em coming!!

I sign up for everything and have seen nothing.. Im always sad when i open the mail and nothing. Does it take a while?

I received my allure box a couple of days ago and my Burt's Bees bag yesterday. I've always wondered what my mailman must think, because I've delivered mail before and I've never delivered to anybody that gets as much stuff as I do :P

My problem is that stuff comes in and I get so excited that I don't want to put the stuff away and then I have a pile before you know it!

Any ideas??

I love getting mail now. Everyday I stand around the driveway waiting for the mail goodies. The mailman just hands them to me and doesn't even bother with the mailbox. I received the secret clinical strength from vocalpoint yesterday and today I got a sample from Curel, yay!!

anon: sometimes it does take awhile other times it's only a couple weeks. I also got my first issue of Shape-i signed up for it in September. HTH

I'm with you anon@12.18. Although I sign up for a lot of freebies, I receive very few. But hey, maybe in future we will get more like others.

Angelique said...

I received the cookie cutter package yesterday and today elf make up and the nestle planner with coupons!!! This is so much fun! Thank You

I got cookie stencils not cutters??

Sophie said...

Yes, I love getting my mail. So far this week I've received the Olay Pro X 28 day sample w/$10.00
0ff coupons, $10.00 check rebate from Kellogs, and some coupons I ordered on ebay. It's so fun to check the mail! I love logging on and checking all the deals on Hip 2Save too!! I'm so thankful for your site Collin!

My daughter and I fight over who brings the mail in! She signs up for things too!

Anonymous said...

It is so much fun to read what people are getting. I too wonder what my mail person thinks delivering all these things:) This should be a weekly post!

Ann@12:18 don't get discouraged things will start coming soon. I only started couponing and sampling five or six months ago and I already have a healthy stash.

SweetCanela said...

I love getting mail too. Always new coupons or a new freebie at least 5 out of 6 days of the week.

Amy said...

Has anyone gotten their Annies Homegrown Calendars? It seems like it has been a long time...

Anon 12:18,

Most of the stuff I get in the mail I had completely forgot about. I had requested them sooo long ago and just figured what I get is what I get lol. But don't give up. Others were saying they got theirs when I had not and was feeling kinda bummed until one day, mine was in the mail too :)

I also, have never received things I requested. Lots of samples from the Walmart site I never received. Remember the tv wall handing thing? It said it was on its way..and of course never came.

I was thinking about using one of my extra binders to write down my orders/requests. Date I ordered, if it went through, and how long it said it would take. Just to see how many I miss out on. But don't give up! Once things start coming in the mail, you will usually see something there every other day if not every day! Its so funnnnnn!!!!!!

It takes a while. I don't think I started receiving samples in the mail until about three to four weeks after I started couponing. After that if you continue to take advantage of the freebies when they come along you'll see them start to stagger in...

I also received the Secret a few weeks ago, and have a never ending flow of Wake-boarding, Diving, and Sailing magazines coming in. Oh and let's not forget that coupon for Edible Arrangements, I'm picking up my chocolate covered fruit on Saturday! Oh and $1.99 burritos at Baja Fresh last night! YUM!

A lot of people think couponing means you are poor or that you'll have to compromise. It's just the opposite! The life of a "coupon-er" is abundant, you should see my pantry it's overflowing! Last month I spent $150 and received $550 worth of groceries, toiletries, free/ discounted meals/entertainment, and freebies! Life is great!

Michelle said...

Has anyone gotten the "I love bacteria" tshirt from a few weeks ago? Honestly I know I sign up for way more free things than I actually get....

Anonymous said...

what is a blog . i needed one to get the children's meds

MalibuBeachBum said...

Ooooooohhh! GREAT goodies! I got my first issue of SHAPE magazine in the mail today! Got my Olay Pro-X in the mail on Monday! GREAT mail-checking week so far!!!

Anonymous said...

Michelle, some come sooner than others. Some products the turn around is a week or so. Others like the Pennzoil Rebate from what seems like decades ago (I think it was 3-4 months ago) finally came in a few weeks ago. If you can be patient and keep signing up for new offers, eventually you'll start to see things come in. I haven't received the "I love Bacteria" shirt either, and my guess is that it may take a while. Hang in there, it's worth it!

Lynne said...

It's a lot of fun to have these little surprises several times a week. Did anyone get their Hugo Boss perfume sample? Also I didn't get my coupon for the free fruit, my friend registered seven hours after me and got hers! I've even checked my spam file! I wonder if I call them if they will honor it?

So far this week we've gotten... Kashi coupons, inhaler holder, scott's insider t-shirt, and the splendid life order like yours! Seeing the mail man is my favorite part of the day! My kids(ages 4, 3, and almost 2) and I run out to see what treasures await us. I'm bummed about the meds..I didn't get any yesterday and I sign up for so much that I can't remember if I was in on that one or not. :(

Christina said...

I also love checking my mail - I got both my splenda order, my homeopathic med kit, AND a surprise from seventeen - the you are gorgeous kit from seventeen and clearasil!! I said it felt like Christmas - Thanks for all the tips on these great deals/freebies!!

I have a lot of trouble getting samples and freebies. I live in a really rural area, and the post office does not deliever to our home, so we have to use a PO Box. So, if I use my box address, I don't get offers that say "no po boxes" and if I use the house address, I get "that address is not valid." I have a 50/50 shot, very frustrating :{

Shopping Frugal said...

The Splenda spoon changes colors in ice water :) Super cute.

Wichita Coupons said...

I love getting all the great freebies every week. I do a post about my weekly mail every weekend!

Anonymous said...

I got my Splenda order yesterday too but I did not get the spoon :-(

Ashley B. said...

This week and last have been great! Kashi coupons, Vocal Point Clinical Strength, 4 magazines, Total cereal, FP princess dvd...it just goes on and on! checking my mail now is SO much more fun!!

Liz said...

I got the 3 full size medicines yesterday in my mail. I couldn't believe how much they actually sent out to us! I was shocked! I thought maybe a sample or so but, 3 full size products, amazing! The mail lady looked at me today (as i was waiting for her to arrive) and, said you sure do get alot of mail everyday! I love it!

Anonymous said...

Eekks! Where did the Kashi Q come from?

I too was wondering about the blog thing. I didn't request because I didn't know what that was all about.

Andrea A. said...

I used to hate the mail. All that came in was bills and sales stuff. Now it is great! My husband says,"yeah great for you, I still get the bills". Ummm oops. I think I need to make sure to find some for men. Other than that I keep checking out my peep hole starting at 3pm even though I know mailman doesn't come until 3:30. Then if there is no freebies I am so sad. ;-)-

Kayren said...

I literally had to add a second mailbox b/c I order so much free junk. It's like an addiction! I can't help myself, esp when it's FREE. It's just that magic feeling you get when walking to the mailbox...the sheer anticipation of it all. Will something be there? How much of it? It's like Christmas when I have an armload of mail!!!!

Jen said...

The meds offer says it's expired. I just got mine today, and was going to post it on my blog.

Lynne, I got my Hugo sample about two weeks ago. It was only a little packet sample (the kind you rub on your wrist), but it smelled good! :)

Anonymous said...

Got my Hugo sample as well. I haven't tried it yet.

ashley said...

I got my splendid life order today but it did not come with the cookie cutters like I thought It would soooo sadd......

Joe Money said...

I got HELLO Gorgeous! SEVENTEEN Clearasil freebies Woowoo!!
Thanks Collin.

Jaime said...

I got my "drugs" today, too! :) So surprised that they were full size!

Angela said...

There isn't as much for men of course, but every time we get something my husband is excited because he knows it didn't cost anything or it was a great deal!

Also I let him do the honor of opening up the packages, he says he loves it :D

Hi,
I was so excited to receive this package too. I recently started my blog and the company said that because I was a new blogger I couldn't receive the product. What a disappointment. Thank you for sharing the tip. Too bad the company backed out on their promise.

Julie said...

I didn't receive my cookie cutters either. I got the scoop and spoon. Was I suppose to do something special to get the cutters?

It is like Christmas when I receive my freebies in the mail! Today nothing...it's funny before I didn't care!

Please make this a weekly post on your blog! It's fun to see what others are getting. Thanks for all you do Collin!!!

Amy J said...

I run to the mail box before my kids can get there! Today I got my Hillshire Farm lunch bag. Last week my EOS lip stick, free Yo Plus coupon and $20 Kraft rebate! It is too much fun! Thank you for all the hot tips and ideas.

Anonymous said...

Yesterday, my $4 Pace Q, and today, the surprise from Seventeen magazine! My daughter will love the little bag with goodies in it. Who knows what I'll get tomorrow! :)

Jannel said...

I agree that this should be a weekly post. It is so much fun seeing what goodies everyone is getting!
