How is everyone doing with their savings so far? Some of you may know that I said I was going to be compiling a list of companies that you can email to get even more savings, so here is the beginning of what will hopefully be a very long and useful list of companies that will send you coupons if you ask them nicely.

In case you're wondering what to include in your emails to these companies or any others you contact, here's a sample email that I sent to Azteca Foods (of course I never got a response from them, but this is generally how I structure my emails).
Dear Azteca foods,
My family and I love to eat tacos, burritos, and tostadas for 
dinner all the time. Deep-fried bean and cheese burritos are 
actually one of my favorite dinners as far as taste and 
simplicity. Normally we purchase La Rosa tortillas, but I'd 
love to try out your brand to see how we like it. If you had 
any coupons that you could send me, I would greatly appreciate
Thank you very much!
Allisha Gold, Burrito Enthusiast

 Good luck with your emails! I'll be sure to update the list of companies as I get more coupons in the mail!

Blog Giveaways

Why pay for something when you can get it free? Blog giveaways are great ways to win free items, gift cards, or even cold hard cash! In this past month alone, I've won 4 different giveaways being hosted by bloggers themselves, and this was pretty much the first month I've ever entered blog giveaways! What's so fantastic about giveaways that are hosted on blogs is the fact that your chances of winning are usually pretty high. Most giveaways range from just a few hundred entries to a few thousand; compare that to the sweepstakes held by large corporations that can have hundreds of thousands of people entering. And what's even better is that almost all blog giveaways allow you to earn multiple entries, making your odds of winning even higher! So now that we've been talking about blog giveaways, I say it's time to announce our first blog giveaway!! Enter through the Rafflecopter form below for a chance to win a $5 Amazon gift code. This giveaway will end on April 7 at 12 AM EST and is open to the U.S. ONLY. The winner will be chosen through random.org and will have 48 hours to respond to my email. You must follow my blog through Google Friend Connect to be eligible to win and I will verify the entries. Good luck! (:

Bored? Get a FREE $20 Game Download!

Free entertainment! Woohoo! Paradox Interactive is offering free downloads to their Cities in Motion game! All you have to do is complete their survey about video games, which should take you at the most 20 minutes. It actually froze on me when I was almost finished with the survey, so I had to re-take it for it to finally go through; but even with me basically doing the survey twice it still took me less than 20 minutes. Hopefully it will work the first time for you! You can take the survey until March 31st and they will email the download to everyone a few weeks later.

Great news! Just a couple days ago I was selected to be a tester for another product testing site called SheSpeaks. In the next 2-3 weeks, I'll receive full-sized bottles of Pantene Nature-Fusion Shampoo and Conditioner in exchange for just sharing my opinions with them! I joined SheSpeaks on February 14, so it only took about a month for me to be picked to test a new product on the market. Definitely join if you'd like to receive free products in the mail!

And be prepared! I'll be posting something in the next week or so that I know you'll absolutely love!

Product Testing Websites

We all love trying out new products, and what could be better than getting to try out new products for free? Over the past 3 plus months, I've been joining a number of product testing websites and other various websites. However, because I am only posting about websites/tips that I can personally vouch for and have had the opportunity to try, I can only tell you one website I have actually been chosen to test a product for. Swaggable! I joined this site on February 29, merely 3 days ago! What's so great about it is the fact that this is the only site I've ever been picked to test a product for, but at the same time it is the most recent site I've joined. I get to try out Chai Now, an alternative to regular tea and coffee. When I get it in the mail I'll let you know how it is!
They have a HUGE variety of different things you could be selected to try, and several other people I've talked to also quickly received an invitation to try out a product after joining. So I definitely recommend signing up, all they ask is that you write a review about what you thought of their product.
Unfortunately, a lot of sites can take up to a year before they choose you to test out a product, it all has to do with demographics. I'll post on the other product testing websites as I get picked to try out more products!
