Kmart, Sears: Possible Free Surprise Points Means Free Clothes

Kmart, Sears: Possible Free Surprise Points Means Free Clothes

free clothesCheck your Shop Your Way accounts. I just looked at mine and I have $7 to spend on clothing at Kmart between now and January 15 and $7 to spend on clothes at Sears by January 20.  Choose an item for $7 or under, and you can get free clothes. Sounds like a new free work out top for your New Year’s resolution.

There are a bunch of items on sale because of the change of season, so you can definitely get a good deal. Did you get these? My mom didn’t, but Pete did, so not everyone is able to get free clothes. But if you are, head over to Kmart’s website or Sears’ site and see what you can pick up. If you’re lucky enough to live close to a Kmart, choose in store pickup and you don’t have to pay for shipping.

If you’re not a Shop Your Way member, join here for free. It’s Kmart and Sears’ free loyalty program. You’ll earn points on your purchases, plus get bonus point offers, exclusive coupons, and more. All your purchases at Kmart and Sears, online and in store too, will earn you points. You can use those points on future purchases. Every 1,000 points is $1. Each month, any Shop Your Way member with a personal shopper will also be awarded bonus points. That’s free money! Get yours by joining here so I can be your personal shopper — for free.

52 Week Savings Challenge (Free Printable)

52 Week Savings Challenge (Free Printable)

A few years ago, I put together a 52 week savings challenge free printable. It’s a printable I like to revive this time every year.

Have you tried the challenge before? It’s a pretty easy way to save a bunch of money. Here’s what you do: Print out the printable below and keep it with your budget. Putting away a few dollars each week will help you save over $1,300 in 2017. You put away $1 this week, $2 next week (week two of the year), all the way until you get to $52 during week 52. That adds up to $1,378 at the end of the year, which is a nice chunk of change to have!

Just follow the schedule for your weekly savings goals. To print the schedule, just click on the image, save it to your computer, and print. You can print it in grayscale and fast draft, so you don’t use colored ink. Look at that. Saving more money already!

52 Week Savings Challenge free printable

Drugstore Divas is filled with tons of ways to save money all year long. We’ve done posts like that since this blog started in 2009, and we will continue to do that into 2017. We are making a few changes though. I want to focus more on ways to life a frugal life rather than ways to get free toothpaste. It’s like dieting. You don’t want to diet, you want a lifestyle change. So this year, you’ll see less coupon alerts and more posts about meals you can cook at home so you’re not blowing money on take out.

I’m really excited about where 2017 is going to take Drugstore Divas, and I hope you are too!

Kmart: Possibly Free Shoes With 5,000 Shop Your Way Points ($5)

Kmart: Possibly Free Shoes With 5,000 Shop Your Way Points ($5)

kmartI think Shop Your Way is trying to single-handedly fund my Christmas shopping right now. Check your accounts and you might have 5,000 surprise points ($5) for a footwear purchase — and that can equal free shoes.

Log into your Shop Your Way account and then check your surprise points. If you have it, you’ll see 5,000 points for footwear with no minimum purchase required. I was looking at the sale shoes in my local store and there are a ton of slippers on sale for $5, like the Piper Girls’ Winky Face Yellow/Pink Slipper. This coupon works for them, so that’s great. They’re an adorable gift to give a little girl. Plus, they’re free, so that’s a great price for you. No girls on your shopping list? No worries. There are slippers for men and women priced at just $5 too.

Who are you picking up these free shoes for?

Starbucks: Buy A $10 Gift Card & Get $10 Free (Til 12/22)

Starbucks: Buy A $10 Gift Card & Get $10 Free (Til 12/22)

starbucksAre you a fan of Starbucks? Then this deal is for you.

Right now, when you load $10 or more to the Starbucks app with Visa Checkout, you will get a $10 eGift card. You must make the purchase by December 22 (or while supplies last). You’ll receive the eGift card within one day. There’s a limit of one per person for this deal.

I always do these offers because, well, I like getting free money, which turns into free coffee. And, speaking of coffee, have you had the Caramel Brulee Frappuccino? I had it the other day to substitute for the Salted Caramel Mocha Frappuccino that I fell in love with over the summer, but was dumped off the menu for the winter. Sad times, folks. Sad. Times.

When you get your gift card, be sure to use it to register for My Starbucks Rewards, Starbucks’ free loyalty program. By joining, you’ll earn stars for your purchases — and those turn into free refills, free drinks, and more. Join for free here.

And, if you’re a big fan of coffee, be sure to check out our Spiked Mocha Nut Coffee recipe. It’s pretty tasty. You can also make a virgin (non-spiked) version of it too! And if you’re a fan of frappes (like me!), try our Copycat Coffeehouse Frappe recipe. If you do try either of these recipes, be sure to leave us a comment and let us know how you liked them.

I usually run out for this, but I’m not this time. The Salted Caramel Mocha Frappuccino is my current favorite at Starbucks. Have you tried it? The salt basically swims in the caramel sauce and when you eat it at the end, it’s the single best taste ever. I think I buy that drink just so I can have the salt at the end. But, that drink it’s part of the BOGO holiday drinks, so I’ll just wait until I get my birthday freebie next week.
