FREE family movie night 8/25

My kids have been talking about this for days since we got the email from Redbox. Today, August 25 is "America's Movie Night." Search "Redbox" on Facebook and click "America's Movie Night" on the left. You're just a few clicks away from a free code. I know the movies are just a buck, but isn't it fun to get it for FREE?!

What good movies have you rented from Redbox lately?

Eco-friendly scotch tape: get it FREE!

When I can score a deal that's a green product and I get it for free, I wear a smile all day. Yes, I'm that nerdy. I just stopped by Staples to get all the extreme deals on the front of the flyer for myself and my church. They still had plenty of everything, and the notebooks rang up $.09, not $.19--even better.

My favorite deal was for Scotch magic eco-friendly tape, made from 75% renewable or recycled materials. The dispenser is made from 100% recycled plastic, the back-card is from 100% renewable materials, and the tape is made from over 53% renewable plant-based materials. I'm not sure how they do that, but that's cool. You can also reuse the dispenser and buy refills separately or recycle it through Terracyle. Since our school has just started collecting for Terracycle, I'm jazzed about this idea, which pays the school $.02 for each item. Love it!

So here's the deal: You pay $3.99 and get $3.99 back in Staples rewards to use on a future purchase. Voila: FREE. Limit 1 per customer. Go green, save green, give green!

Decent Staples deals this week

If you happen to be near a Staples this week, there are a few good deals to pick up. You need a rewards card for some of them. I will probably be picking up deals for myself and my church by using both Staples cards and I won't have to pay tax on their purchases. There's a limit per account; not per customer. The deals are either in Staples rewards; pay now, save later through store credit, or Easy Rebates; pay now, they send you a check. Rewards are usually good for 2 months. Here are the deals:

1 Scotch Magic Greener tape: $3.99, get $3.99 in SR=FREE
1 Staples pack of pastel paper 500 sheets: $8.79, get $8.79 in SR=FREE
1 8 pack of Staples writing pads / steno pads: $10.79, get $10.79 in SR=FREE
1 3 pack of Scotch moving & storage tape: $13.99, get $13.99 in SR==FREE
