Who doesn’t love getting something for nothing? Plain and simple, free stuff rules! Here, some Foxy favorite freebies — little things that make life so much sweeter.
Tune It On – iTunes/Starbucks Pick Of The Week
Every time we prance in for our grande cinnamon cappuccinos, we score a little jive with our java. Pick up one of the iTunes cards sitting on the counter and download a free song by punching in the code. Good for our ears – and wallets!
Scream For Ice Cream – Baskin-Robbins Birthday Club
The only thing we love more than ice cream is free ice cream. Sign up for the Birthday Club (online or at a store), and they’ll send you a coupon right before your big day. It’s good for a free scoop. You can try playing the B-day “card” at restaurants, too. If it’s your friend’s birthday, ask if the restaurant does complimentary birthday desserts. It’s always sweet to surprise someone with a cake, candle, and song at the table!
Freezer Fun – Fancy Freezer Labels
Opening up your freezer to find a stash that’s been there since the Ice Age is scary. This is why we love Martha Stewart’s free printable freezer labels. They’re pretty and practical. Just jot down the contents and date on the labels, stick them on your food packages, and you’ll never have a glob of funky lookin’ stuff in your freezer again.
Posh Postcards – Personalized Postcards
Martha to the rescue, again. The diva of do-it-yourself provides two printable postcard templates. You simply supply a 4×6 photo for the front of the card and then voila, you’ve got a free, fashionable way to keep in touch with friends and family.
Luscious Locks – Pantene Shampoo & Conditioner
Treat your tresses to free treats courtesy of Procter & Gamble. They’ll send you free samples — all you have to do is sign up.
Creams ‘n’ Things – Kiehl’s
This fancy pantsy bath products purveyor gives three free samples with any online purchase from their website. Fine, it’s not totally free since it comes with a purchase, but it makes us feel like we scored a major deal. And we love that we get to customize our freebies to suit our tastes.
Fantastic Facials – Department Store Facials
High-end cosmetics brands at your local department store often offer free facials or treatments. Naturally they’re promoting their products, but there’s absolutely no obligation to buy anything. If it’s true and makes you more comfortable, tell the facialist that you want to go home and see what it does for your skin before you buy. Check online at sites like Clarins or go to your local counter to ask a salesperson to keep you posted on other free offers.
