Free shoes from Famous Footwear + Free Sandwich and Free Dessert!

April 18th, 2014 at 03:06 pm

I LOVE my freebies!

Got a free sandwich from Schlotsky's Deli for tax day, just had to buy a pop and chips, but still a great deal to get a Schlotsky's Sandwich, 32oz Pop and bag of chips for $3!

Had a text reward from McKenzie River Pizza Co, for a free dessert when you spend $18...2 meals and 2 drinks is easily way over that, so got a free dessert when we ate dinner there. I got the Mack Lovin, it's a giant warm (like melted) chocolate chip cookie with 2 scoops of ice cream and chocolate syrup on top....ooooohhhh my......it was AMAZING!

And then got text deals from Famous Footwear, $10 off a 10 purchase (got this deal from My Frugal Adventure). I had DH do it as well on his phone, so we each had $10 to spend. Found 2 pairs of shoes in the clearance area and already have them ready to sell and a potential buyer for the slippers! SCORE!!

Girls Sandals were $29.99, clearance to $10 - $10 coupon = FREE!
Slippers were $27.99, clearance to $10 - $10 coupon = FREE!
*ETA - Sold on FB on 9/2/14 for $7.00 = $7.00 Profit
