Happy New Year (and Thank You!)

posted in Miscellaneous on

I want to wish all of you a very Happy New Year! I hope you’re all out having a fun time tonight bringing in 2012! Be safe and have fun :)

I wish everyone luck sticking to their New Year’s Resolutions. I highly recommend adding Couponing to the list if it isn’t there already ;)

2011 was a great year for me and my blog and I owe it all to my lovely readers. New readers and my lovelies that check the blog every day keep this page running. I love hearing your feedback and seeing your great deals. Thank you for being so supportive of a college-aged blogger! I know it’s hard putting up with and listening to 19 year old blogger sometimes. Not many people like listening to people younger than them, but I try to be reliable because I truly do this to help you. I appreciate every single reader and know you’ll stay with me through 2012 and watch me grow even more. This time last year I had less than 20 readers/day, so this sites is surely growing and I’m so grateful! ;)

Thanks everyone and Happy New Year!

Love, Brandi

    There’s going to be a SUPER high value $2.15/1 Finish coupon that will make a HOT deal at CVS. :)

    I’m currently accepting donations for the Finish coupon ;)

    I want to remind you guys to use your cashback sites! Ebates and ShopAtHome are wonderful, I highly recommend them. You’ll get cashback on every purchase you make online. If you’re new to eBates you’ll get the $10 gift card (read below) and if you’re new to ShopAtHome, you get $5 in your account.

    Currently, if you sign up for Ebates via this link you’ll be mailed a $10 gift card if you make a qualifying purchase within 90 days.

    Ebates is a FREE cash back site that offers cash back when online shopping at popular stores. Make sure you sign up here and select the gift card you want. When you are ready to make a purchase online, go to Ebates first, type in the site and go through their link. You’ll earn a percentage of that order from Ebates. Once you reach a certain amount, Ebates will send you the money!

    It’s very easy, and doesn’t take too long to get your money. All you need to do is sign up here and then remember to use Ebates before you make your next online purchase!

    This freebie has been around for awhile, but it goes so quickily every day and I want to make sure y’all get a chance to get one.

    Head on over here at NOON EST sharp to request a FREE reusable bag from Nursery Water. They will be gone within minutes, but check back tomorrow if you miss it.

    NOTE: If you are viewing it before 12 noon – the counter above will say “0 bags”. 
    Check back at 12 noon EST when the counter resets.

    It’s Friday and Mega Swagbucks Day! Today is the day of the week where you are supposed to earn the most Swagbucks, so start searching!

    Swagbucks is a place to earn prizes, like Amazon gift cards, by earning Swagbucks through random searches, surveys, polls, games, TV, and special offers. Just spend a few minutes a day on Swagbucks and you’ll have a few Amazon gift cards before you know it!

    How to See Recent Posts on Facebook

    posted in Miscellaneous on

    With all the crazy Facebook changes, people are missing out on their friends statuses and more importantly, the freebies!

    By the time you see that I posted that free sample, it could already be gone! Here are two easy ways to make sure you’re seeing what you want to see on your News Feed:

    1. Log in to Facebook and “Like” the Savvy Student Shopper if you haven’t already
    2. Go to your home news feed and click “Sort” at the top right of the feed.  Then select “Recent Stories First” -so you’ll catch all the freebies asap!
    3. Then, find a post from the Savvy Student Shopper (either on your news feed or my wall). Click on the arrow towards the top right of the post and select “Highlight this story”. (As seen in example above) This makes sure your favorite pages aren’t hidden from your view.
    Hopefully that helps you see more of what YOU want on Facebook and I’d love it if you followed the Savvy Student Shopper :)
