The nearest mall is over an hour away from my home in northern New York so when I need something, I often shop online. Before I make a purchase, I try to check for coupon codes to see if there are any deals out there. One of my favorite sites for codes is Brad's Deals. My son told me about this site (thanks, Brian). It always seems to be current and they come up with some fantastic offers. If you haven't been there before, be sure to check them out.
Another site that I've used is Imega Deals. There are usually some good buys here as well. In addition to the regular coupon codes, Imega Deals has a section for Freebies. If you look along the left side of the page, you will find the link for Free Stuff. I just checked it this morning and it doesn't look like anything new has been added lately. I don't think companies are offering as many freebies now as they did a year ago.
Don't forget to log into Big Crumbs BEFORE you go to any shop to make a purchase! They even give you credit for Ebay purchases but you have to log in before you bid.
