FREE tickets to Toy Story 3 – a reminder June 20, 2010

PLEASE NOTE: I have no affiliation with Toy Story 3, Disney/Pixar, or any movie theaters, and no matter how nicely you ask me, I can’t get you any free tickets. That’s something you have to do on your own. 🙂

Happy Father’s Day to all those great dads out there! What are you doing to celebrate? We’re headed to the movies!

Do you remember that deal we shared back at the end of March where you could get FREE tickets to Toy Story 3 when you bought Toy Story 1 & 2 on DVD? Well, now is the time to redeem those certificates at DisneyMovieRewards.com!

I redeemed ours last night online and it was VERY simple. Our vouchers are printed and ready to go for our local Cinemark Theater. I made sure to put the adults’ names on the vouchers since the kids cost less anyhow! The vouchers are good for up to $8.50 per ticket and even good for the “no coupons, no passes” showing of Toy Story 3.

In memory of my daddy who is celebrating up in Heaven today, I wanted to throw in a plug about the importance of being a registered organ and/or tissue donor. For more info on how to be the ultimate in resourceful, please click here. If you’re not ready to register, please at least start the conversation with your family.

Happy Father’s Day!

 

FREE 8×10″ photo collage at Walgreens June 18, 2010

What to do with lots of related photos without breaking the bank? Put them together in an 8×10″ photo collage — and get it for FREE! I made one of these with photos from last summer’s family reunion the last time I saw this deal, and this time I’m going to make a collage using photos from my son’s first teeball season!

These 8×10″ photo collages are SO easy to make, and you can get one FREE (with no S&H charge) when you choose in-store pick-up! Simply go to the Walgreens Photo site and upload your photos. Use code GOBIG8X10 to get your 8×10″ collage for FREE at check-out. If you prefer to have it shipped, shipping is just 99cents!

Here’s something to ponder… This is a fabulous FREE gift that you can have printed at a Walgreens that isn’t near you, but is near your dad or someone who’d like a photo collage from you? Have the collage printed at the Walgreens nearest the recipient and ask him or her to swing by to pick it up! Now that’s being resourceful!

Find a Walgreens near you (or someone you love)!

Expires: Order by midnight tomorrow (Saturday, 6/19/2010)

Thanks, Freebies4Mom!

$28 custom boxers & coordinating travel mug for Father’s Day June 1, 2010

Here’s a great, one-of-a-kind Father’s Day gift for Dad, Grandpa, and those other special guys in your life! Really, who needs another tie? And I’m a HUGE fan of gifts people can really use. If you have to dust it, no thanks!

For just $28, he’ll get a set of custom boxers with a coordinating travel coffee mug — personalized any way you’d like! The photo I included in this post shows the #1 Dad set, but Collections by Tara Nicole offers 4 different boxer choices and 18 print choices for mug inserts (plus tons of plain colors). Specify what you’d like embroidered — his name, monogram, or a short saying — and you’ll create a gift he’ll love!

Expires: Order ASAP to ensure delivery before Father’s Day (June 20th)!

 

$1.99 & FREE shipping for custom photo notepad May 25, 2010

This would look really cool on Dad’s desk at the office (or on my desk at home!), and would be a great way for him to remember his loved ones while checking off his to-do list.

Another great use for this deal? End-of-year teacher gifts!

EXTRA 15% OFF at Disney Outlet & 25% OFF one item at Disney Store May 7, 2010

Mother’s Day may be this weekend, but Father’s Day will be here before you know it! I found this fabulous “Canine Caddy” Mickey Mouse & Pluto Snowglobe at the Disney Outlet for just $25.49 (regularly $79.50, on sale for $29.99, then an additional 15% OFF when you use code OUTLET15). What a great gift for any golfer in your life — especially those grandfathers and dads who don’t need yet another tie!

Golf not your thing? No worries! Use code OUTLET15 through May 9, 2010 at the Disney Outlet to get an EXTRA 15% OFF their already amazingly-priced Disney merchandise!

If something at the regular Disney Store has caught your eye, head over there with code MOM25 to save an EXTRA 25% OFF one item!

Expires: Both of these deals expire on Mother’s Day — May 9, 2010

Thanks, Patti D.!
