Here are a handful of freebies to round out May and get June started. Enjoy.
- Head over to Wal-Mart, between 11 a.m. and 4 p.m. on Friday, May 30th for free ice cream. My sources tell me that Dibs, Blue Bunny and Ben & Jerry’s will be there for the taking. Honey, need anything from Wal-Mart, because I’m going.
- Every Wednesday, Arby’s is offering something free from its menu. This coming Wednesday, June 3, you get a free FruiTea with a sandwich purchase. Check out the Centsible Savings blog for a rundown on freebies through August.
- Get a free burger until June 10th at Shorty Small’s full service restaurants when you tell your server, “Give me the Burger, Baby!” There is a one burger per table limit, but absolutely no purchase is required. You’ll find Shorty Small’s restaurants in Little Rock, Arkansas, Branson, Missouri, Wichita, Kansas and Oklahoma City, Oklahoma.
- Alouette cheese is encouraging people to try out the new Baby Brie Wedge by offering a coupon to download for free cheese. The coupon is good through the end of the year.
- Log on to the Mars candy website to take advantage of the company’s Real Chocolate Relief Act. Every Friday through September 25th, you can sign up to get a certificate for free chocolate from the Mars candy company–makers of Dove, Snickers, Twix, M&Ms and more. (Thanks for Miami on the Cheap for the heads up about this offer.)
- Don’t forget: through May 31, 2009 (that’s this Sunday!) at an Uno Chicago Grill near you, you can use a coupon (click here for it) for kids to “Make Your Own Pizza” for free, with purchase of an adult entrée. (Kids are defined, by the way, as being age 12 and younger.) With the make your own pizza option, children are given aprons, thin-crust pizza dough, sauce, and toppings to make their own delicious creations, which are baked and brought back to the table for dinner. Yum!
Complimentary Online Course
- In time for National Safety Month, the National Safety Council will offer free enrollment in two popular online training courses, June 1-7 only: “Alive at 25 Parent Program,” for parents of teen drivers; and “First Aid and CPR with AED,” basic training for adults. For the “Alive at 25 Parent Program, click on “New Student” and enter “NSM” as an access code. Users will have 30 days to complete the program. Register for the “First Aid and CPR with AED” course here.
Mac Camp for No Moola
- Still unsure what to do with the kiddies this summer? Live near an Apple Retail Store? Then you might want to sign them up for a free Mac summer camp, for kids ages 8 to 12. Camps cover making musics, movies and more using, what else, Macs. Only bummer? You, the parent, have to stay with the kids during this so-called camp. Hey, that’s not camp–that’s Mommy and Me!
Treat Yourself to iTunes
- Become a fan of iTunes on Facebook, and you’ll receive a code to download 10 songs from iTunes for free. And I just bought a bunch of songs on my own dime. Darn! Thanks to Sweeties Swag for cluing me in on this deal. (Note: you have to scroll down the iTunes fan page to find the link for the 10 free songs. And unbeknownst to me, iTunes automatically downloads the 10 free songs; you can’t choose them. Sorry.)
