Free Redbox DVD Rental (when you reserve online)

redbox

Head over to Redbox to get a free dvd movie rental today, Sautrday, 9/20.

Use promo code:  LKMNLK99

I tested it online and it worked.

redbox_9_20

Update:  Alva tried it at a kiosk and it worked!
(Thanks, Alva!)

I’m not sure if it will work directly at a kiosk or if it’s only online reservations.
If you find out either way, please let us know.
In the past, these only work online or with their app.

We’ve also heard you can use these codes up to five times on a credit card that you’ve used before and three times if it’s a new credit card.  You just need to check out separately for each one.  You can give that a try, if you want a movie marathon!

(Thanks, Free Stuff Times!)

mccafe

Just a reminder that this starts tomorrow!

From Sept. 16th – 29th, McDonald’s is having a Free Coffee Event.

Stop by any McDonald’s nationwide and get a free small coffee during breakfast hours.

No coupon is needed and no purchase is necessary!

We received an e-mail about it from McDonald’s.
But, you may want to call your location just to verify they are participating.
You can find locations here.

I have to admit, we don’t go into McDonald’s often.
My daughter is 10 and she’s eaten there once.
It was in an airport and quick options were limited.
The point being, I had to google what breakfast hours are and it looks like it’s 6-10:30.
(Correct me if I’m wrong???)

Facebook Problems? ~ Get Bargain Believer to Show Up in Your Feed!

facebook

I’ve received quite a few emails recently, asking how to get Facebook updates from Bargain Believer to show up in your news feed.

The very best way seems to “like,” comment, and share posts regularly.  The people that do that say they see all the updates.  As a bonus, Facebook shows the posts with the most love, more often.  So, we love all of you that interact with our page!  It helps those who want to get the updates, but choose to remain quiet.

If you are opposed to that, hover over “liked” and make sure “following” is checked.  You have hope, but it doesn’t seem like much.  Most likely, you’ve already done that and nothing has changed.  :(

Lastly, you can check to “get notifications,”  which is an option under the “like” button.  Some love get notifications, some don’t.  Try it for awhile and see what you think.  You can always uncheck it later.

If Facebook won’t show you the love, there are other ways to follow.

Email - One email per day, usually around 3pm — good way to quickly look & see what you missed

RSS

Twitter

You could give one of those a shot or just stalk the website page each day.

Anyone have any other insight about getting your “liked” pages to show up?

Last Free Dbacks Game & Sunsplash Admission + Surprise Coming! ~ Pogo Pass Holders

dbacks_field

I just want to make sure that all Pogo Pass holders know that the last Dbacks game you can get into (this season) is on Friday, 9/12.  The pass includes two Dbacks games.

It’s also the last weekend to use your Sunsplash admission.

Go to Pogo’s website to register for tickets for either attraction.

Note:  The passes are good for 365 days, and everyone has a different start date.  You could use these next season, if the venue is still on the pass, before your expiration date.  I’m not 100% sure if they will be there next season since things change, but we can hope.  I’ve never been disappointed yet.  Whenever something comes off, somewhere as good (or better!) gets added.

Stay tuned. . . the pass is getting even better soon.  My lips are sealed, but smiling big at the new high value venue coming very soon!  :)  (If you already have a pass, it will automatically be added, when it’s released!)

Here’s what your annual pass will include (for now!):

To purchase:  Go to the Pogo Pass website (That link should get you the $39.98 rate.  If not, use the code BARGAIN.)

  • Sunsplash (ONE visit anytime, valid 2014 season ending 9/14, not sure about next season)
  • Sea Life Aquarium (TWO visits, anytime)
  • Phoenix Zoo (TWO visits, anytime)
  • Diamondbacks Games (TWO games – last game this season is 9/12)
  • Rattlers Games (THREE games, dates will be added throughout season)
  • i.d.e.a. Museum (TWO visits anytime, except opening weekends – three weekends per year)
  • ASU Sporting Events (women’s basketball, soccer, wrestling, volleyball, gymnastics, track and field)
  • Enchanted Island (FOUR visits, Fridays & Saturdays, most rides included)
  • Jump Street (TWO visits, Monday & Wednesdays, Chandler or Glendale)
  • Stratum Laser Tag (TWO visits, dates and times listed)
  • Phoenix Rock Gym (TWO visits, gear is $5, if needed)
  • Tempe Paintball (TWELVE visits, one per month, not Saturdays, includes gun rental, air & 100 paintballs!)
  • National Comedy Theatre (THREE visits, Fri. and Sat., with occasional Thurs. Seating is limited. Call to reserve seating.)
  • Skateland & Great Skate (TWO visits per month, skate rental not included, but can bring your own)
  • Brunswick Zone (TWO visits per week, shoe rental not included, excludes Sat. and some other special days)

To purchase:  Go to the Pogo Pass website (That link should get you the $39.98 rate.  If not, use the code BARGAIN.)

** Each person needs one, unless they’re 2 or younger.  Most places won’t charge admission and it’s not worth buying them one.  If you have a three year old, check the venues you will use and see what their policy is for three year olds.
