Vitacost Savings

VItacost savingsI just finished my Abouttime protein powder in the vanilla flavor and was looking to repurchase that brand because I really like that it’s made with the natural stevia sweetener. When I first purchased this protein powder last year I bought it off of About time’s website. But when I went to look online for it now, I realized it’s being sold on Vitacost.  Vitacost is a health food/supply website that sells its own brand but also several other brands. I like that I could purchase this protein powder along with other items that are sold via their website.

Protein Powder

The website has lots of promotions going on at one time. I found one specific to protein powder for 15% off, and then 10% off your first order by signing up via email.

Along with the company’s promotion I also used this cash back website and received 6% cashback!

Savings: 18%; free shipping


Dunkin Donuts App and DD perks

I think it was last fall that I signed up for the Dunkin Donuts perks rewards and downloaded their app onto my smartphone. The app works well although I’ve experienced some functionality issues. However overall I do like how easy it is to reload, put money on, track your rewards and track coupons that are offered. When I first signed up I received a digital coupon in the app for a free any size beverage.  There was also some sort of football promotion going on that I got a free coffee when the football team in my region won a game. Other times that you can receive a free any size beverage is on your birthday or whenever you reach 200 points.

The coupon deals within the app seem to update and change once a month. So for instance a ‘purchase a muffin for $1 off’ coupon will last the entire month of May. Or 2x reward points on sandwich purchases will be good for every sandwich purchased within a few weeks time period. Really good coupons that you should check the app frequently. Recently there was a get any size hot or iced beverage for $1.99 (for this coupon and the free drink ones I always treat myself to the drinks that would normally be like $4).


Other benefits of using the app: You can pay with your smartphone, load giftcard balances to consolidate

Savings: vary by promotion, but in the short time I’ve signed up for DD perks I’ve already received 3 free beverages (regular price $2- $4 each)


Victoria Sercret Secret reward cards:

Thanks to the Krazycoupon lady I sent away for Victoria secret rewards cards during the promotion time period back in March. The detailed post is here.

Essentially with no purchase necessary I sent out five envelopes to the stated address with a return address inside with my address on it. I did this five times. You could have submitted one per day for the entire promotion period but since it was my first time trying this out I only did 5. After a couple of weeks I received my self-addressed envelopes back in the mail with 5 secret rewards cards.

I also only did five submissions because I read online you can only use one card per transaction. I figured most cards were going to be $10 and since there are very few items at VS for $10 this would end up costing me money to use the reward cards. Well I did receive five secret rewards cards back (4 in the mail and then one randomly in my email which I provided on the information card). They were all for $10. Well luckily when I went to my local VS I was allowed to use 3 cards per transaction which was great. So I ended up using $30 worth of rewards in one transaction and then $20 in another. I only ended up going over in one transaction by like $2 so I considered this a great success and I can’t wait to try this no purchase necessary mail in promotion another time!

Savings: This cost me about $5 in stamps and I received $50 in free merchandise, 90% savings!
