“Jump” on over to Fisher-Price to request this third-in-the-series Planet Heroes DVD, “The Ace that Jumped Over the Moon.” My boys LOVED “Ace in Space.” They were a little disappointed that “Here Comes the Sun” was so short, but overall it was a hit as well. There’s no shipping required, so sign up to receive yours today!
Check it out!!! I mentioned yesterday in Mail Call Monday that I received another great surprise last week. I was selected to host a Gerber Organics House Party! My little man started solids just a few weeks ago, so this couldn’t have come at a better time. It’s going to be tons of fun sharing all this loot with my friends (and one lucky reader – more to come on that)!
If you haven’t heard about House Party, I highly recommend you check it out. I’ve hosted numerous parties over the past few years, including Hershey’s Bliss, Cacao Reserve, Gevalia, Pepperidge Farm, a previous Gerber party and more! Right now they are taking sign-ups for Grey Poupon, Better Homes and Gardens/Green Works, Fisher-Price, and Barbie. My almost 4-year-old DD is really hoping we get in on the Barbie party.
I hope to hear about all of you hosting some fabulous parties in the near future!
Join the Cold Stone Creamery Birthday Club to receive a coupon for free ice cream on your birthday. Best of all, you can register every member of your family for this! I kind of had to laugh when I noticed that it said you can only add five family members, because that just won’t cut it for us. But they do go on to say that if you have more than five family members, you just need to create another account with a different email address. So a big thumbs up to Cold Stone for recognizing that large families are still thriving these days!
Thanks so much to Brittany for letting me know about the club, and be sure to hop over and wish her a very happy birthday today!
I’ve been an avid reader since the age of four when I learned to read my first book (and all-time kids’ fav), The Little Red Hen. I’ve always tried to encourage reading with my own kids, and we’ve amassed quite a collection of books, but there’s always room for one more!
So I was super excited when I found out about Harper Collins First Look program for kids. Simply register here, and Harper Collins will notify you by email when they have new books available for review. They have four up for grabs currently. This is the first I’ve heard of it, so I just registered myself, but I found a lot of positive feedback in my research of it. I’ll be sure to post again after we’ve reviewed a few books to add details on the whole process.
I was asked about how I received my Coca-Cola coupons, so here’s the back story. DH stopped at the grocery store a couple of weeks ago and picked up a 20-oz. Coke for me on his way out. When he got home, I noticed that it had leaked in the bag. He thought maybe he had bumped it and knocked the cap loose, but one swig told me the cap had not been secure for awhile, because it was completely flat. Blech!!!
I was a little disappointed, but I was going to just write it off, until I noticed that it had one of the new caps on it. (Have you noticed these? They’re really cute!) It then occurred to me that maybe it was a design flaw, so I took five minutes to look up a customer service email address and write a short email about my problem. I included all of the manufacturing information that I was able to find on the bottle
To my surprise, when I woke up the next morning, I already had a response. They asked for some additional information and told me to hang on to the bottle until I heard from them again. About three days later, I received a letter from them thanking me for reporting the issue with the two coupons shown here enclosed. I was really impressed with the quick response, and grateful for the coupons as I wasn’t really looking for anything in return for my feedback.
So the moral of the story is that sometimes it pays to provide a company with feedback. Now, I’m not advocating providing false feedback to try to garner freebies, but many companies do respond to customer feedback, both negative and positive. I’ve also had very good luck with simply writing to companies that have products I really like to let them know what I like about it and asking to be added to their mailing list for coupons. Try it sometime, and you might be pleasantly surprised, too!
