Free Friday: Halloween Weekend equals food freebies galore

Whether or not you celebrate Halloween, odds are you do celebrate food freebies. Thanks to the haunted holiday, this Free Friday features a significant number of food freebies. For a little balance there are also a couple of beauty product freebies. On with the show …

free pancake

Take your kid to IHOP today for a free scary face pancake.

IHOP serves as this week’s Free Friday opening act. The popular breakfast chain is offering up a free Scary Face Pancake to all children 12-and–under today (Friday, Oct. 28) until 10 p.m. No purchase is necessary and no coupon is required.

Another kids eat free offer comes from Boston Market. Print this online coupon and bring it in to get a free kids meal, with the purchase of an adult entrée. The online coupon is valid from Saturday, Oct.29-Monday, Oct. 31. (Thanks Free Sample Momma)

T.G.I. Friday’s has its own food freebies this weekend. If you wear a costume to any of their participating locations from Saturday Oct. 29-Monday, Oct. 31, they will give you a free appetizer! It appears the choices are mozzarella sticks, pot stickers or crispy green bean fries. (Thanks The Reali$tic Couponers)

Two corporate titans combine for this next Free Friday food freebies offer. Today (Oct. 28) through Monday, Oct. 31, Walmart is giving away free Starbucks ice cream. Just stop by the Bright Ideas Station at your local Walmart to pick up your free ice cream.

free dove

Free Friday has the best beauty product freebies.

The last two food freebies this Free Friday are only available to Southern California residents. KFC locations in Southern California have an online coupon on their Facebook page for two free large sides with the purchase of an 8-piece meal. Palomar Pizza & Pasta in the San Diego area, meanwhile, has a SaverTime voucher for a free slice of pizza that you can redeem at the Vista Palomar Park’s FREE Halloween Spooktacular on Saturday, Oct. 29 from 1-4 p.m.

This edition of Free Friday might be packed with food freebies, but as promised, there are a couple of beauty product freebies as well. Boss will mail out a free fragrance sample of its new BOSS Orange scent to anyone who provides their name and mailing address.

Likewise, DOVE is mailing out free Dove® Nourishing Oil Care Leave-In Smoothing Cream to anyone who signs up for their email list and gives their name and address.

Save Money Monday: The difference between a coupon, a daily deal voucher and a sale

PennySaverUSA’s Save Money Monday coupon blog is back on the scene and we are devoting today’s entry to detailing the differences between a coupon, a daily deal voucher and a sale.

On the surface, a coupon, a daily deal voucher and a sale might appear to be the same. In fact, the distinctions between the three are very important.

A coupon provides a discount for a particular item or service. There are printed coupons, online coupons and mobile coupons. Coupons can range from 25 cents off a box of cereal to $250 off a $1,000 couch.

Printed coupons can be found in publications like the PennySaver and must be brought to a store in order to get the stated discount off the stated product or service.

smog coupon

This is an example of a printable online coupon.

Online coupons come in two forms. Printable online coupons can be found in PennySaverUSA.com and function the same way as printed coupons. E-commerce online coupons, on the other hand, provide a promo code that you can then use when making an online purchase. When you submit the promo code, the stated discount will get subtracted from the price of your online purchase.

Mobile coupons are redeemable from your cell phone and are rapidly growing in popularity. They function the same way as printable coupons, but instead of presenting a printed coupon to the store, you just show them the coupon on the screen of your cell phone. PennySaverUSA has launched the app Cha-Ching (available for both iPhone and Android phones) to provide you a way to use mobile coupons.

While a coupon requires no upfront purchase, a daily deal voucher must be bought. You pay a stated price upfront for the voucher and in return you get whatever the value of the voucher. For example, you pay $5 for a $15 men’s haircut voucher to the local barber shop. You then take that voucher to the local barber and you don’t have to pay for a haircut (aside from the initial $5 outlay to buy the voucher). PennySaverUSA.com now has daily deals available from SaverTime.

A sale is very different from a coupon and a daily deal voucher, because it requires no action. A sale is a discount offered by a merchant on a particular item or service to everyone. A coupon (printed or online) or daily deal voucher is not necessary to obtain the discount. Check out PennySaverUSA.com’s PowerSites directory to find local sales in your area.

Please leave in the comments if you have any further questions about the difference between a coupon, a daily deal voucher and a sale.

Gift ideas for President Obama on his 50th birthday

Today marks Barack Obama’s 50th birthday and PennySaverUSA wanted to share some gift ideas for the President of the United States of America.

Our first gift ideas suggestion for President Obama is a massage! What with that nasty debt debate and then today’s stock market crash, it’s a tough time to man the Oval Office. Thankfully on his next trip to Orange County, he can get 50% off a massage at Body Therapy Center with this SaverTime daily deal.

With gold so incredibly expensive right now and President Obama looking for ways to save money, our next gift ideas suggestion is for a personalized sterling silver pendant! This daily deal is also from SaverTime and even comes with free shipping, so you wouldn’t have to pay to get it to 1600 Pennsylvania Ave.

original pizza

President Obama deserves a nice big pizza for his birthday.

Nothing says party like pizza. Hence our next gift ideas suggestion for President Obama. On his next trip to the Sunshine State (Florida), PennySaverUSA would be glad to treat him to an awesome pie at Original Pizza II. Even better, they have great online coupons which would help cut down the expenses!

Our last gift ideas suggestion for President Obama’s 50th birthday is a cell phone app. The United States is the “Land of the free” after all, so we are giving him something that’s free! It’s called MOGASA, and it’s PennySaverUSA’s new cell phone app that helps you find, post and review garage sales (download it for iPhone or Android).

If you have more gift ideas for President Obama’s 50th, please leave them in the comments.

Make Money Monday: Make and save with new daily deals site SaverTime

PennySaverUSA.com will typically focus on jobs during the Make Money Monday feature, but this is a special day that calls for a one-week detour. It’s the launch of our daily deals site SaverTime!


Spread the word about SaverTime and earn credits.

Sometimes the best way to make money is to save money, but with SaverTime you can actually do both. In addition to offering great coupons, SaverTime’s 5-3-2 Rewards Program allows you to receive credits the more friends in your network buy a deal. You can then use those credits towards deals and end up with an awesome coupon without having to spend a penny.

As if a daily deal program that helps you Make Money Monday and save money at the same time wasn’t enough, there are several other advantages SaverTime has over the other daily deals sites.

Unlike so many other daily deal sites that have either national or regional deals that might be completely irrelevant for you depending on where you live, SaverTime stays true to its local focus. When you sign up, you will be asked to select your locations (you can pick as many or as few as you like). You will then only get daily deals emails dedicated to your locations (for each location you add to your favorites, you’ll have to subscribe to get the emails).  That way you don’t have to read through an email with daily deals from some place you will never visit. Not all locations are ready quite yet, so if you don’t see your area of residence, please check back periodically.


Enter for a chance to win up to $1,000 in the SaverTime contest.

Another thing that separates SaverTime from your average daily deals site is that it offers practical coupons you will actually use. It can get frustrating when you get repeated daily deals featuring unusual goods or services that aren’t really functional at all. SaverTime deals are designed to help you save money on every-day expenses like your car or home.

To make it even more convenient to use SaverTime, you can get Deals-On-The-Go using your mobile phone, and as if you needed any other reasons to join, SaverTime is offering prizes of up to $1,000 in its free contest!

You won’t want to get that oil change or gutter cleaned without consulting SaverTime first to see if a money-saving deal is available. Stay up to date with everything SaverTime on their Facebook page and Twitter feed. What are you waiting for? Become a member!

Disclaimer: For now, SaverTime is only offering daily deals in California, but it will be adding Florida over the next month, and is open to adding more states. Please tell us where you’d like to see us go in the comments.
