Free Redbox codes are rare these days, but we have one!

Get a free DVD rental!

Text RETURN to 727272

You’ll get a one-time use code to enter online or through their app.

Your code is valid thru November 4th.

Tip: If you’re already getting Redbox texts, text STOP to 727272.
Then, go back and use the code above to opt in.

I’m not positive if the code will work directly at a kiosk.
They don’t always work there, so you may want to reserve it online.

5 FREE Digital Movies ~ “Movies Anywhere” Information

Movies Anywhere is a new streaming service that solves a major problem: allowing you to access almost all (currently excluding Paramount Pictures and Lionsgate) of your digital movies from one place.  It’s also offering up to 5 free movies when you connect 2 of those services with theirs.  There is no cost to sign up and connect the services, so it is completely free.

Sign up with Movies Anywhere and connect your various digital accounts and then enjoy on whatever device you would like (including Roku, Apple TV, iOS, Android, Web).

In addition, after creating a Movies Anywhere account if you connect one account, they will give you 2 free movies (no substitutions):

If you connect a second account, they will give you 3 free movies (no substitutions):

They say this is for a “limited time.”  I’m not sure when the offer ends.

You might be wondering if you own any digital movies.  There is a good chance you do.

For many years now, when you buy a DVD/Blu-Ray you may have also been buying a “Digital Copy” of the movie too.  If you were diligent, you were creating accounts and entering movie codes so that these various streaming movie providers (e.g., Disney, Vudu, Ultraviolet) would know you “owned” that movie and were authorized to stream it.

Or, you may have purchased a purely digital copy of a movie from iTunes, Google Play, or Amazon over the years.

In any event, there is a good chance you “own” digital copies that are spread over different systems and depending on how you want to watch the movie, it may be a pain to do that.  For example, if you purchased a movie from iTunes but are now using a Roku, you might have had a hard time watching it.  Now if you connect them with Movies Anywhere, that won’t be a problem.

So, in summary, if you have 1 or 2 streaming digital services accounts (and just about everyone has an Amazon and either an iTunes or Google Play account) and would like to consolidate them for your viewing ease and gain up to 5 new movies, check out Movies Anywhere.  For more details on how to sign up and connect the accounts to get this deal check out this article.

P.S. If you are interested in converting some of your DVDs into digital copies with Vudu (which is owned by Walmart) so that they will be available through Movies Anywhere, you can look into their Disc to Digital Conversion program.  It does cost $2 for same definition conversion, or $5 to upgrade, but you may find it worthwhile to get a digital copy of your favorite movie that you can watch from almost any device.  It also might be a good option if your physical copy is scratched, as all you need to do is scan the barcode.

Nanci left this comment for us after going in August:
The museum’s parking lot was completely full but they offered overflow parking directly across Central Ave in the parking structure. The structure serves the Uptown Phoenix’s Arts District building, 1636 N. Central Avenue, which houses the offices of the Arizona Opera Company. It was free to park there, the attendant just asked that we park on level 3 or 4 and exit to Palm (since the other exits were not open). There were even two gentleman, maybe officers, controlling the lights and stopping traffic so we could cross Central safely. I was worried there would be no parking but was pleasantly surprised to find the overflow lot.  (Thanks, Nanci!)

Emails, Facebook, Twitter! ~ Follow Us!

Go here to get our daily emails.  Yes, they come everyday, usually around 2pm.  They’re not for the weak or those annoyed by getting an email every single day.  :)  The emails give links to all the posts we did, in the previous 24 hours.

Make sure you click on the confirmation email!!  So many miss this step.  I’m guessing it’s because it goes to spam sometimes, so be sure to check there if you don’t see it.

Facebook is where we’re most active.  We post extras over there all the time, especially more localized deals or offers that will probably disappear quickly.  As an added bonus, you can learn tidbits from others who contribute or ask questions over there.

If you hover over “Following” and choose “See First,” Facebook will show Bargain Believer posts first, so you don’t miss anything or see it too late … or never.  If you don’t, there’s a good chance you’ll miss a lot.  The more you like, comment, and share posts; the more Facebook believes you actually want to see the posts.  Stay active, please!  It also keeps us motivated, knowing there are people who are actually out there.  :)

Sometimes, we wait to post on Facebook, so there’s a greater chance it will actually be shown in your feed.  (Facebook doesn’t seem to like us posting things right in a row.)  If you’re waiting on something, you can always hop over to www.BargainBeliever.com and see if it’s already there.  Sometimes, we’re backed up, especially on Mondays & Tuesdays, when we do a lot of ad match ups.


Honestly, Twitter just gets the automatic feeds from the website.  If you’re a Twitter follower, everything will be there.  It will just show the post title and have a link.  There won’t be extra commentary or interaction there.

If you don’t know what this is, it’s probably not for you.  :)  You can get feeds in different ways, but here’s a link, if you want to set it up this way.

Kids FREE Admission in October ~ San Diego Zoo, San Diego Safari Park, Sea World, Aquatica, Legoland and 40+ Museums in California

zoo

Family trips to California were always a favorite for me as a kid. We’d pile in the back of our pick up truck and go blazing down interstate 10 in July when it’s 115 out.  My pig tails were in knots by the time we got to my aunt’s house in Pomona.  Have you ever tried opening a Coke in the back of a pick up going 70 down the highway? Take my advice, don’t ever do it. My tangled pig tails also had a nice layer of corn syrup in them.  But, we’d stop at my aunt’s in Pomona, load her and my cousins in the back of the truck and head to the beach and all was right in the world.

I knew I had a picture one of these trips, so I just found it for you.  That’s me in the back on the left with the red pig tails.  At least my parents gave us cheap chairs to sit in.  Although, there were only 3 chairs and I was the youngest, which meant I sat on the blanket.  I’m not even sure how this was legal, but in 1979, I guess anything was fine!

In case you are planning a trip to California for Fall Break, here are some nice deals. And if you aren’t planning a trip to California, you should!  One tank of gas and the whole family is on the beach! And here are some great deals for kids in October, plus, the beach is free!

The San Diego Zoo and The San Diego Safari Park both offer free admission for kids in October.  You have to pay for any extras you may want to do, but at least the admission is free.  Adult admission is $52 for a single day into either the Zoo or the Safari park. Kid admission is $42 (ages 3-11), so this is a nice savings! I did talk to someone at the zoo and the told me that it doesn’t matter what you pay for your adult ticket, weather you save by getting the 2 day park pass or get tickets at Costco. Basically, kids just waltz in free as long as an adult is with them. And if you can get your kids to waltz, I’ll be even more impressed!  HA!

Sea World is offering a sweet deal right now too.  Buy a full priced Adult Ticket, Get a Child Ticket Free!  I don’t know how long the deal is running, but you have to buy the tickets on their webpage here and use them by 10/31.  The adult ticket will cost $94.99, but you’ll get a free kid ticket. A kid ticket is for children ages 3-9 and is normally $88.99.

Sea World Aquatica is offering the same promo as Sea World. Go here to buy tickets. But you only have thru October 8th to use those tickets. An adult ticket is $46 and a child ticket is normally $40 for ages 3-9.

Also, Legoland has kid free tickets too thru 10/31. Go here and use promo code: 17025. Or you can purchase this offer at a Legoland ticket booth, but you’ll need the coupon here.

And if that isn’t enough reason to load the kids in the back of a pick up truck, er I mean, put them in the SUV with full AC, their tablets and an Icee from 7-Eleven,  kids also get in free to 40+ museums in October. You can read more about that here.

There are also discounts at Costco, and I know there are some for military also.

You can read about those deals and a few more (like kids free on sightseeing tours) here.

Another great place to find discounts is Groupon.  You may surprised that something you planned to pay full price for has a Groupon deal!

D-backs Win ~ Deals Today at Taco Bell, Papa John’s, Circle K and Jack in the Box

It’s been awhile since we had all these deals available. The Dbacks beat the Dodgers yesterday 7 to 6, and scored several home runs. All these deals are good today, Wednesday, 8/30.

taco_bell

For Arizona residents, participating Taco Bells will give you three free tacos when you purchase a large drink, if the Diamondbacks score at least 5 runs.  (Home or away games. A win or loss doesn’t matter — well, for the tacos!)  :)  The deal is only good the day after the game from 4pm – 6pm.   No coupon is necessary.  Large drinks were $1.69 at my Taco Bell last year.

Here’s a link to their schedule.  It also lists the scores of past games, so you can see if they scored 5 runs!

Last year, you could pay 30¢ more for a limeade of freeze, 30¢ extra for each Dorito taco you wanted, or get all three “D-backs style” (sour cream & tomatoes) for $1.  I’m guessing it will be the same this year.

**  I’ve heard of rare Taco Bells in Arizona that don’t participate.  It’s safest to call yours before going, just to make sure.

papa_dbacks

“All season long, the day after every Dbacks win you get 50% off your regular menu price online pizza order. They won last night, so you get 50% off your total online order today!”

Order online at Papa John’s and use the code DBACKS50

Remember it’s after EVERY win, all season long! (home or away games)
It used to be 50% off anything on the menu, but it’s now only pizzas.

Here’s some other codes in case you need to order another day:

Here are other codes I try, when I want to get 50% off my online orders . .

ASU50 (after different sports teams win)
COYOTES (when in season)
CARDINALS (when in season)

If those fail and you don’t have points saved:
SAVE25 (for 25% off)

Circle K has a Strike Out Meter for the Dbacks. During regular season home games, you’ll get a freebie based on the strike outs. The more strike outs, the better the deal!

You need to download their app to your phone to get this deal. Go here to get the app. The deal will automatically get sent to your smartphone “as a deal” in the app. Follow the app instructions on claiming the deal. You’ll just need to show the offer on your phone to the cashier.

Today’s deal is free PIllsbury Minis.  No other purchase is needed.

jack_in_the_box_logo

If any Dbacks player “Jacks” a home run out of the park, fans can go Jack in the Box the next day to receive a free Jumbo Jack with the purchase of a large drink.  The location I called charges $2.39 for a large drink.

If you’re not a Dbacks follower, you can do a quick internet search for “dbacks score” and you’ll see that you can click for highlights or a recap.  They should tell you if there was a home run, in their summary.

Not all restaurants are participating.  Rose says the 7th St. & Indian School location is not.  (Thanks, Rose!)

diamondbacks_logo

The AZ Diamondbacks has a great promotion for kids.  No Chew Crew membership is free to children 15 and younger who pledge awareness of the harmful effects of spit tobacco and “Say NO to spit tobacco.” Parents/guardians must be 18 years or older to register a child for the No Chew Crew.

Kids who take the pledge can get in free to select games.  You can read all about it here.

And when you are at one of the games, register to be part of the Dbacks Kids Club.  All children ages 3-15 are eligible, with a parent’s permission, to sign up for the club at the D-backs Kid’s Club HQ located in the Phoenix Children’s Hospital Sandlot, near section 332.

You can earn other prizes too! Members simply scan their membership card at specially marked fan kiosks throughout Chase Field and receive a slip redeemable at the Kid’s Club HQ for a prize. Members earn a free prize for each of the first 20 games attended and a bonus prize at game 25 and 30! Kids must be presented to redeem prize.

You can read all about the Dbacks Kids Club here.

You can read all about the D-backs promos here.
