Cookies for Kids Cards $1 at Giant Eagle

by Tara Kuczykowski on October 28, 2014 · 0 comments

Just in time for Halloween, Giant Eagle has the new 2015 Cookie Card available at all supermarket locations. You can buy your 2015 Cookie Card for $1 at the customer service desk, and use it to get a FREE fun-sized cookie (in store only, one per child, per day). You can choose classic favorites including Chocolate Chip, Sugar or Candy. Use your 2015 Cookie Card as a Halloween treat to give out to friends and neighbors or as a special gift for the trick-or-treaters in your family.

In operation for more than 20 years, the Giant Eagle Cookie Card program has resulted in more than $2 million being donated to local Children’s Hospitals. With the traditional program, customers are asked to pay $1 per cookie card, with all proceeds benefiting the many Children’s Hospitals across the company’s footprint.


Have you ordered your kids' Halloween costumes yet? If not, I've got quite the deal for you from Swagbucks!

While I've shared how to earn with Swagbucks in the past, I really haven't talked much about their Shop & Earn program. If you're familiar with other cash back sites, it's virtually the same; however, you receive your cash back in the form of Swagbucks that you can redeem for gift cards and more.

Earn up to 14% Cash Back. Plus get a free $5 Gift Card when you spend $75 or more.

Now is a fantastic time to give the Shop & Earn program a try for two reasons:

1Right now you can receive up to 14% cash back on qualifying purchases at participating online vendors in the Halloween Shop. Cash back is paid in the form of Swagbucks, which will appear as pending in your member account ledger within 2-4 days from the date of purchase and will clear within 32-35 days from the date of purchase.

2Get a $5 gift card for orders over $75 placed during the promotional period at the stores listed below. Note that members are limited to only one $5 bonus. In other words, if you place multiple $75 orders at any of the stores below, you will only receive one $5 gift card. The $5 bonus will be awarded in the form of 500 Swagbucks, and will be issued 14 days from the conclusion of the promotion.

The Swagbucks Halloween Shop is comprised of the following stores:

  • Buy Costumes – 8 SB per Dollar (equivalent to 8% cash-back)
  • Costume Discounters – 14 SB per Dollar (equivalent to 14% cash-back)
  • Costumes Supercenter – 14 SB per Dollar (equivalent to 14% cash-back)

What are you planning to be for Halloween this year? So far only my 10-year-old daughter has her plans nailed down -- she's going to be Batgirl. :)

Fun With Duck Tape {Bat Pumpkins!}

by Tara Kuczykowski on October 16, 2012 · 0 comments

I love how these bat pumpkins for Halloween turned out. Can you believe they're made with Duck Tape?!?

This is a great alternative to carving pumpkins with younger children. Just cover your pumpkins ahead of time and precut the features using the method described in the post -- then you can just peel and stick!

After Halloween, you can peel the duct tape off of your pumpkins and make some homemade pumpkin puree.
