Friendly’s Deal

Many people have already taken advantage of this but there are a couple franchises not participating. Contact your local restaurant to see if they are participating before you take the trip.


UPDATE: Offer expired. Bookmark this page and check back often so you don’t miss out on any more deals!


Shopkick is an app where you earn “kicks” for visiting your favorite stores.

With some stores, you earn kicks just for walking in the building. For others, you earn kicks for scanning the barcode on certain items while you are at the store. You DON’T have to buy the item, just scan the barcode ¬†on your phone.

However, there are some stores, where making a purchase of certain items WILL earn you kicks.

You can then trade your “kicks” for gift cards.

Besides earning kicks, you can also see deals at stores listed. For example, right now under “deals” is 15%-30% off your J.C. Penney purchase. Click “show barcode” and it will put a barcode on your phone for the cashier to scan at the register. Then you get your instant savings.


Shop Your Way

Get FREE or discounted items with Shop Your Way!! Yes, this is for real!

Who doesn’t like FREE money? I have personally purchased so many items that didn’t end up costing me a cent! Just look at this screenshot of one of my orders:

You get points in 3 ways:

  1. Earn points on your purchases made online or in-store.  Get a percentage back in points on your purchases. Sometimes they have special deals where you get extra points back!  The pictures below were FREE after getting a bonus 100% of the cost back in points! 
  2. Win points (or prizes) by playing regular sweepstakes or instant win sweepstakes. Not only could you win, but it’s fun and free to play! You can play these free sweepstakes on the Shop Your Way website.¬†¬†Also download the Win It app to play even more sweepstakes! It’s free to download, too! You could win whatever prize is being offered, or points, such as in the screenshot below:¬†I have gotten lots of FREE items just by using points I won in the instant win games! I’ve also purchased expensive items at a HUGE discount by paying most of it using points I won.
  3. Surprise points. Yes! Check your account often because sometimes they give you free surprise points…just because! I just had $12 in surprise points to use on clothing. Sometimes there is a minimum, sometimes there isn’t. ¬†¬†And check your receipts….

Points can then be redeemed for items to purchase at Sears or Kmart online or in store. For example,  10,000 points equals $10 to spend!

You can play sweepstakes for the chance to win points or prizes for FREE WITHOUT making a purchase, so what are you waiting for?


Good luck!!img_20161005_225140

These points REALLY add up quickly!!

I just ordered another absolutely FREE item by using points I won in the Sweeps Instant Wins!

Now I have some new pajamas! On sale for 50% off and then paid for entirely using points I won in the Sweeps Instant Wins:screenshot-2016-11-16-at-12-14-42-am

And two more totally FREE items…. ¬†This blender was on sale for $15.86, I got FREE shipping AND paid for it using Shop Your Way Reward Points. Nothing out of pocket. Same with the K-cup holder. 100% paid for with Shop Your Way Reward Points I won in the Sweeps Instant Wins.

Other items I received FREE or practically FREE because I used Reward Points I won or surprise points:

I just got $50 worth of clothes for FREE! They had lots of clothes on CLEARANCE. Then, you got 100% back in points! This sweater ¬†was on the clearance rack. Green ticketed items were $3.99 no matter what they said. Here’s an example:

  • It was $40 originally.
  • On clearance for $9.99 but green ticket so it really cost $3.99.
  • 100% back in points, so it was like it was FREE!
