ANOTHER free Hallmark personalized card!

Did you already get your free personalized card from Hallmark that I posted about here?

Well, now you can get ANOTHER free card from Hallmark, by going here and entering the code APRILCARD at checkout. 

Also, don't forget that you can select the option to have Hallmark mail the card directly to the recipient, and the code will even cover your postage!

Old Navy Weekly- Keep Checking Back!

Good news! If any of you are like me and are following Old Navy Weekly to try to get your hands on one of those coveted $75/$100 Old Navy Q's, you'll like hearing this:

It sounds like the folks at Old Navy Weekly are going to spread out the love a bit. In recent weeks, as soon as they reload the site with new Qs, there's a mad rush and all the good stuff is gone in a matter of minutes. So now, I think they are going to reload the site with smaller amounts of Qs throughout the week, so keep checking back to see if they've added any of the high-value ones!

This week, I think one of the high value Qs can be found by clicking several times on the cotton candy. It's empty right now, but perhaps it will be reloaded soon.

Also, you can get a $5/$25 Q by clicking on the blue pants of the woman by the toddler.

Good luck! Let me know if you find any other good Qs or are able to snag one of the $75 gems.

Frugal Muse Giveaway: I'm sending two of you to the movies!

Has it been a while since you enjoyed a night out at the movies? Well, I've got really good news for Frugal Muse readers today: Two readers will win a pair of tickets to go see Coyote County Loser, a great new romantic comedy!

The details on the prize!

• The Frugal Muse is giving away two pairs of tickets to see Coyote County Loser this Friday (April 24) at Rogers Malco Pinnacle Hills in Rogers, Arkansas or at Siloam Springs 6 Theater in Siloam Springs, Ark. Even if you don't live in Northwest Arkansas, you can still enter to win these tickets if you know someone who does live in NWA. Make their day and win some free tickets for them!

• The contest will be open through tomorrow (Tuesday) at 11:59 p.m. at which time two winners will be drawn at random. The winners will be contacted via e-mail and then will have the opportunity to decide which show time they prefer, and tickets will be left "will call" in their name at the theater.

How To Enter: 

I'm making this contest super easy to enter and win, and I'm even offering four ways to enter, giving you the opportunity to earn up to four entries in the drawing!

Four ways to enter:

1. Leave a comment on this post telling me about the craziest thing you ever did for love or any other thoughts you have about love. Also leave a note telling me which tickets you'd like to win- Rogers or Siloam Springs. Be sure to leave a valid e-mail address or a link to your blog so that I can contact you if you win!

2. For a second entry, become a follower of this blog! Be sure to leave a second comment letting me know that you became a follower to earn a second entry, and leave valid contact information! If you are already a follower and want your shot at two entries, just leave a second entry stating that you are already a follower and would like a 2nd entry!

3. For a third entry, send a friend the link to this post and invite them to enter! If they enter, you just earned a third entry! Just leave a comment saying that you invited someone who entered (we'll be rolling on the honor system here- I trust you.) :-).

4. For a fourth entry, blog about this giveaway or the movie on your blog. Post a comment with a link back to your blog entry, and you'll be entered again!

Good luck!!

Total RRs left at the end of the transactions: $18.50

GREAT deal on stainless steal coffeemaker from Gevalia!

WOW! Check out this awesome deal from Gevalia Coffee:

Click here to sign up for Gevalia's coffee delivery program, and you'll receive: 
• programmable stainless steal coffee maker
• four half-pound packages of gourmet coffee
• stainless steal coffee scoop
• Gevalia travel mug

The best part? This deal will only cost you $29.95 + $5.95 shipping! Considering the cheapest stainless steal coffee maker at Bed, Bath and Beyond alone will set you back about $70, and two pounds of gourmet coffee can easily cost you $15 or $20, this is a great deal. I also love to take advantage when deals like this come along to plan ahead for Mother's Day, Father's Day or birthday gifts!

The only thing you'll need to remember to do is to cancel your membership with Gevalia after you receive your shipment if you don't want to continue receiving their monthly coffee shipments. All you have to do to cancel is call 1-800-438-2542.

Coffee lovers, enjoy!
