Cheaptastic TIPS

Free at Craigslist

There are tons of awesome resources online for getting free stuff. The Craigslist free section is great. Here’s an example:


Coke binge

Download the coca -cola app and start collecting “coke points” on all coke products (which is everything) certain points get you free movie tickets, gift cards, event tickets 😬

Miniature Putt Putt Golf

Wait for people to finish the 18th hole and don’t let their ball drop. Play for free.

$1 Family Movies this summer at participating Regal Theaters

Go to http://www.regmovies.com/Movies/Summer-Movie-Express, enter your zip code and check out the showtimes for all those movies. $1 all summer long. You’re welcome, parents.

Key Maker Machine Discount

Next time, you need to create a duplicate key in one of those machines, 1st put in a “mail” key. The machine will 1st tell you they don’t make this type of key and then it will apologize and give you a discount for the inconvenience. Now, use that discount on the real key you needed made.

Free Samples

Go on the internet and go to any search engine website. Type in the search box “free sample” (make sure you type it with the quotation marks). You will be given hundreds of websites that mail free samples out. And find tons of websites that blog about different freebies.

Quick tip: You’ve got to have Address Auto fill for this. Chrome has one available. It will automatically place in your info (address, name, phone, etc.) in the fields. Then all you have to do is press submit.

Another tip: Use an email address that you don’t ever use or want to use again.

Free Tires

If your tires need to be replaced. Go get a rental of your exact car. Swap out the tires of the rental and your own car. Then return the rental with the 4 old tires. I actually did this last year and they never noticed.

Food Court Samples

Walk around food court for samples. Then take your hat off and put on jacket and do it again. Free Lunch!

Water cups

If you’re tight on money always ask for a water cup and fill it discretely with whatever you want. If it’s a place that gives you clear cups or certain colored water cups be sure to only fill it with clear liquids like water, lemonade or Sprite. You will save money every meal if you did this.
