Normally Curves only offer a 7-day free trial. So a 30-day free trial is awesome. Unfortunately for me this offer is only valid for the ladies. It ends on May 20th, 2012, after which it returns to the previous offer.
I’ll give you a quick rundown of Curves, but if you want the full low-down, check out this dieting website’s review. I didn’t intend to, but I read the whole of their page, because god they know their stuff.
In nut shell, Curves is a gym (for women only – which is wrong if you ask me, but great if you ask my girlfriend). They have gyms all over the world but mostly in North America. And they are franchises, so they have a familiar vibe without being blue-prints of each other. Their claim to fame is that their workout sessions (yes, you are with lots of other sweaty ladies) last only 30 minutes and it’s circuit training, so you get to use a wide variety of machines and go through a ton of exercises, which means a whole body workout, rather than focusing on specific areas. Curves is all about the socialness of the event, if you could turn a tea house into a gym it would be curves (for the good or the bad).
I also saw an advert a few months ago that said they had teamed up with Zumba Fitness, so perhaps you can ditch your dancing and workout classes and just do the Curves/Zumba one instead. Actually, that may be lazy, which defeats the point.
T&C’s: “Limit of one 30 day free membership per person. Not valid with any other offer, no cash value. New members only. Valid only at participating locations in US & Canada. Offer expires 20th May 2012″

I think all I really needed was the title here. It says it all.
To expand on that for kicks and giggles David’s tea (the guys that charge 4x as much for tea as anyone else ~ don’t get me wrong I love the stuff) are giving a free cup of tea to nurses on May 12th 2012 and the next day (the 13th May 2012) for Mothers.
I understand the Mothers Day part but not the nurses bit, is it national nurse day in Canada on Saturday? (~ actually I just found out it’s International nurses day, which is 1 up on national lol) If you are a nurse or a mother how are you meant to prove it? There are no more details than that on their newsletter unfortunately. I assume you can get a take away or drink in tea.
Did you get your free cup? I’m going to see if one of my friends who is a mum will get me a cuppa, I want the bon bon one, it’s awesome. There are David’s Tea stores like everywhere now, find your closest one.

Black’s are doing it again! They currently offer free shooting of portraits for mother’s day. You can simply show up in one of their stores and they will shoot a portrait of you and then print it on a 6×8 mother’s day themed bordered canvas. No purchase necessary and no strings attached. As you might have guessed it’s available until mother’s day, May 13th.
This is a perfect frugal gift for mother’s day. Enjoy!

One of our favourite free samples offer is back. P&G Brandsampler is now available with a whole new bunch of free product samples. The freebies can be different from one person to the other, so I’m not sure exactly what you could get this time but trust me it will be something useful. Procter and Gamble are not cheap so they normally send about 3-4 samples at the same time. Nice, isn’t it? Hurry up if you want to get yours!
Remember that you will need to become of P&G Brandsampler member to claim the freebies.

Tabasco has jumped on the freebie train and is offering free limited edition sample kits, that are meant to be shared with your closest friend. This deal is only available via their facebook page and for a limited time only as well. From April 30th, 2012 to May 4th, 2012, they are going to be giving away 200 samples each day and, from what I can see, the kit includes 10 mini bottles of Red and 10 Sachets of Chipotle (I’ve never tried this flavour so I’m excited).
For your chance to get one of these kits, you have to make sure to “Like” their facebook page so you can get updates on what time they are opening registration each day for these kits. Act quick, and don’t worry if you miss out! You’ll have plenty of opportunities to grab a set. If not, try and see if you can snag a bottle or two from a friend who got their hands on one.

Until tomorrow only Fruits and Passion offer to their customer a free travel-size product when they show the below printable coupon at the time of purchase. If you had planned some shopping in a Fruits & Passion store this weekend, then make sure you print this coupon before going.
I personally think that we never have enough of these travel-size beauty products because they are so useful whenever we go travelling.

Rogers Canada are offering a free Xbox 360 with Kinect to all the customers who activate 2 new smartphones. This offer is perfect for couples and families who currently don’t have a smartphone and/or a contract with another service provider.
They have different plans available for couples and families starting at $105.50 per month and going up to $140.50. As you can guess, the promotion is only valid with a three-year term contract. But it is still a great offer if you were looking to get a new smartphone anyway and someone else in your family also is. Get it together and get a free Xbox 360+Kinect.

This is a freebie from Walmart Canada and not a Facebook one. Use this link to access the sampling request form and fill in your personal information if you would like to receive this Poligrip freebie. Poligrip is a denture adhesive cream, so it’s not worth ordering this free sample if you don’t have dentures or you don’t know anybody who have some. There are only 10,000 samples available.

Starting today and throughout the weekend, you could enjoy a free small popcorn while watching your movie at any AMC theatre. To enjoy this freebie, simply go to the AMC Facebook page and ‘like’ them. You will then be able to print the appropriate coupon and to show it to the cashier at the theatre.
If you don’t like to ‘liked’ brands on your Facebook page, you can always ‘unlike’ them after you got the coupon, it takes 2 second.

The free bowling program for kids during the summer time is back this year again. The free bowling activities are available at participating centers throughout Canada, find the nearest one on Kidsbowlfree.com.
Kids that do not exceed the age limit (might be different from one center to another) will be able to register for up to 2 games per day all summer long until the end of July. This is quite a nice activity to do with your kids and it shouldn’t cost you too much either. Have fun bowling Canada!

Print the below coupon and get a free 50ml ROC Enydrial hand cream ($10 value) with all purchases of cosmetics of $25 or more at any London Drugs store. It doesn’t include clearance items. This is a great offer I think because ROC products are quality ones and buying a minimum of $25 of cosmetics shouldn’t be too hard.
The coupon expires only at the end of April, so you still have plenty of time to use it.

This freebie has already started yesterday but I checked today and there are still some free samples available. This means that you shouldn’t waste any time and go to Tampax’s Facebook page straight away if you’re interested in claiming it. Go to the section ‘Tampax Tuesdays’ to find out about this offer and like their page to order your sample.

Click on our link and claim your free sample of either Purex UltraPacks or Ultra Liquid Detergent. There is a limit of one sample per household and expect a maximum of 6 weeks to receive it. From my experience you cannot be in too much of a hurry, as this kind of freebie always takes a long time to arrive. I’m not sure when this expires, so hurry up!

When I heard about this, I didn’t really got excited because I normally don’t shop for clothes at Sears. I like their stores for a bunch of other reasons, but one of the sections that I probably don’t stop by is the apparel one. So when I read that Sears would be launching a publication on the latest fashion trends, beauty, lifestyle as well as home trends I thought that it would be worth a quick look.
I checked the first edition of the LOOK online magazine and I was happily surprised by the clothes featured in it. One of my favourite sections was the one by the Sears women’s wear trend director, Cynthia Florek, who gives some really good fashion advice.
One of the things that I like about the Sears online magazine is that if we find a look that we like we can buy it straight away online at Sears.ca. We don’t even have to look for it, as there is normally a link to the item. Don’t forget to check our Sears Canada promotions page to get the latest discounts and coupon codes.

I couldn’t really believe it when I stumbled upon this Facebook freebie from Vaseline, but it really is true. For a limited time only, through the Vaseline Facebook page, Canadians can get a free full-sized bottle of Vaseline Total Moisture. As you can guess, there are a few steps to be completed before you can get the coupon and enjoy your freebie.
First of all, go to the Vaseline Facebook page and ‘like’ them, this has become mandatory for all the Facebook freebies ;) You then have to choose one of your friends and deserve them a Vaseline Goodness Award. This only takes a few seconds and your friends don’t even need to accept it for you to get your voucher. But if they do, they’ll also get a voucher for a free full-sized bottle.
As you can guess, there’s a limit of one coupon per person. There are probably limited quantities available but I couldn’t find any information about when this promotion would be ending.

Today on February 29th, it is free tea day in all David’s Tea stores. That’s right, show up in any location and get a free large tea! No secret sentence to be mentioned or no coupon to be showed. Each store will have two flavours available that you can choose from, we don’t know which ones yet as it’s meant to be a surprise.
I only recently tasted David’s Tea because I got a sample box at Valentine’s day and I need to say that I’m now addicted. If you know someone who likes tea, then a sample box which contains a bunch of different flavours can make a really nice gift. So far I’ve tried only 3 different ones, but they were all excellent. I normally always have a tea after dinner instead of desert, because it contains a lot less calories.
So for sure I’m going to head to the closest David’s Tea tomorrow after lunch and enjoy a large hot tea. Let us know which flavour you tried?

This is right, today only (February 25th) you could get a free pumpkin or apple pie at M&M Meat stores in Canada. How does this fantastic freebie (hmmm…. apple pie) works? Simply buy for $10 or more of M&M products at one of their stores and you’ll automatically get a pie with your purchase, no printable coupon needed. I’m guessing that if they still have both flavours left, you should be able to choose which one you want to get, but I can’t guarantee it.
Find the nearest M&M Meats store
They are probably having this promotion because they have too many apple and pumpkin pies left from last fall and these don’t last for ages. So it’s better to run this kind of freebie offer and make customers happy than to throw away good food. I don’t like when stores and restaurants throw away food that is still good for eating. This is such a waste.

Starbucks is in the giving mood this month. If you happen to be visiting one of their stores or know of one in your area drop in and look for the free ‘Pick of the Week Cards‘ which should be on the counter (if they have some left), if not ask them at the counter if they have any more. If you don’t know where your local Starbucks is then use this handy Starbucks store locator.
About now you are thinking what do these cards do? Well basically they allow you to get a free app, just like they do with music (if you didn’t know this then welcome to the world of frugalness). This week’s free app is a good one. it’s for EA’s popular Scrabble App. No idea why EA is making a scrabble app, but I have friends who work for EA; so errrr… well done, I’m sure it’s awesome!
Once you have found one of these marvelous cards at Starbucks, follow the instructions on how to get the free app. This week’s one usually sells for $1.99 so you’re lucky, and no purchase necessary.

It’s been a while since I last wrote about a free cat food offer, quite frankly because my girlfriend buys the cat food, so I didn’t bother looking for any deals or offers.
However, our local pet store now closes before my girlfriend can come back from work. So I have been left with the honor of buying the cat food and litter. Horray! So or course I went on the hunt for an easier way, or at least a cheaper way. And I recently found a Purina coupon for a free bag of kitten food (1.8kg). Now I don’t have kittens (big ones maybe) but I am a huge fan of varying their diets, I did this with my last cat and she lived until she was 18 years old, so I did something right.
So even if you don’t have a kitten you may still want to get the food for your cat or someone else’s cat.
How to get free cat food from Purina Canada?
Easy. It takes about 1 minute.
1) Go to Purina
2) Enter your info for stuff* to be posted to you
3) Wait to receive your stuff*
*Aforementioned Stuff includes;
- A coupon for a free bag of protein rich Purina kitten food (up to 1.8kg bag)
- A coupon for a free tin of any Purina brand wet cat food
- A coupon for $5 off Maxx scoop kitten litter
- And other stuff that’s not that interesting

This is just a quick post to let you know that, tomorrow only, all children 13 years old and younger accompanied by an adult will be able to get in the Hockey Hall of Fame for free. Each adult (price ticket: $17.50) can accompany up to 4 children.
This could be a fun activity to do with the kids if you live in the Toronto area. And it’s quite a cheap one as well, as you only need to pay for your admission. Keep in mind though that it’s probably going to be super packed and full of excited children. Not recommended if you have a headache ;)
Enjoy your weekend everyone!

This is a good freebie for all the Toronto Star readers out here or for everyone who was considering subscribing to this newspaper. If you own an iPad/iPhone, a Blackberry, an Android device or en ereader, you can try the Toronto Star on your device for free during 30 days. Make sure you cancel your subscription before the 30 days period ends to avoid being charge for the next month.
Subscribe to the Toronto Star for free
How many of you still have a subscription to a paper newspaper? I’m sure that this number has been going down for the past few years. I don’t own an ereader yet, but as of now I only read the newspaper on my computer and so does my friends and family. I’m tempted to think that in a few years, newspapers will be available only in an electronic version as it will cost them more money to print it than what they charge for.
What are we going to use to start our fire then? I’m guessing that we’ll still have all those publicity flyers. It seems like we just can’t get rid of them, even though we put a sign on our door.

Biore are launching a new product that should help you control your skin and also keep it in check. More precisely, not only is this product supposed to clean your skin deeply, but it should also help to balance it.
The Biore products are quality ones and they have been proven efficient a while ago. The only question about this latest one is: will it really give the results it promises? And there is never a straightforward answer to that as skin care products don’t necessarily work on all kinds of skins. Some work better for certain type of skins, which is why it is so important to find one that will fit your needs.
Like Biore page and get your free sample
To be able to get your free sample, navigate to the ‘New Product’ tab on the left-hand side of the Biore Facebook page. And once you’ve ‘like’ their page, enter your personal information as requested. There are only a limited quantities of samples available so let us know if ever you’re not available to get yours.

This is quite a cool freebie, even though it is only accessible through Facebook. ‘Like’ Lean Cuisine’s FB page and get a coupon for a free Lean Cuisine meal of your choice. Lean Cuisine meals are healthy frozen meals. I’m not a big fan of frozen meals but I think that it does the job once in a while if I really didn’t have the time to prepare lunch. But I rarely buy some as I prefer freshly prepared food.
When you ‘Like’ the Lean Cuisine Facebook page, you will also be entered to win $10,000 towards the trip of your dreams. There are also other prizes such as 2X reward points and $1000 Molly Maid gift cards. So this isn’t going to be a waste of your precious time :)

You could get free fries at Burger King restaurants on January 27th 2012. How does it work? It’s so simple, that you can actually simply show up in a Burger King and you’ll automatically get a free small size french fry, no purchase necessary. It looks like there are limited quantities of fries, so don’t wait too long before you show up.
I think that Burger King are changing their french fries to thicker ones so this promotion is probably to get people talking about it and to try these fries out of course. I rarely go to Burger King restaurants, I can’t even remember the last time I went there, so I’m not even sure how good their old fries were, but I might try these ones though as I really like french fries.

This is a Facebook freebie. For a limited time only, we’re not sure exactly when it ends, Lipton are offering a free sample of a flavour of your choice of Green Tea Superfruit. You can choose between the following flavours: Acai Blueberry, Cranberry Pomegranate, Blackcurrant Vanilla, Passion Fruit Orange Jasmin and Red Goji with Raspberry.
I really like green tea, so I’m kind of wondering what it will taste like with the addition of these fruity flavours. I think that it will be pretty good, but I’m not sure that it will taste of green tea anymore. Anyway, if you would like to get your sample, go to Lipton’s Facebook page and like them. You should then be requested to enter your mailing address so they can ship the sample. And don’t forget that we always like to hear what you think about new products like this one.

I think this is a pretty cool promotion from McCain. Grab your PIN code inside specially marked boxes of McCain pizza and get a free digital movie rental. The codes should be available with McCain Crescendo rising crust and McCain International pizzas.
This sounds like a good evening to me; no cooking plus a free movie to watch. I’m going to the supermarket tonight, so I’ll be looking for one of these boxes. Let’s hope there will be some left.
There is a choice of 25 movies available for rental, so you can choose what you would like to watch. They are not the most recent ones, but they are all good movies perfect for a quiet movie night.
Get more information on this McCain promotion
