Friday Freebies – September 11th

This week, I found a little bit of something for everyone – from food to school discounts, even a chance to make $5 million dollars!

If you want to add a little creativity to the usual meal, or want to save cash by making restaurant meals at home, go here for ideas that will last for weeks.

Don’t let the heat keep you from a free hot drink. Sign up for Abuelita’s newsletter to get a free sample here.

Like those restaurant gift cards? Now’s a good time to get one. This site will let you buy a $25 card for $10!

Students (and parents, too) might like this site. It has tips to get discounts on everything you could possibly need – from discounted travel to ways to pick up discounts while furnishing your dorm.

Students might want to bookmark this site. It has one minute recaps of hundreds of literature books commonly assigned for classroom reading. You’ll have to register, but it’s free. And if you’re assigned a book that’s not in the library, request it and they’ll make a video recap.

Teachers can see IMAX movies for free. It’s an incentive to get teachers to plan field trips for education films (not the big blockbusters in other theaters). Here’s the sign up information for teachers. And here is the information on movies and teaching materials available.

If you like to party, this site is for you! You can buy or sell party supplies on this site (they’ll take a small commission). Make sure you shop around so you’re shipping costs don’t cost you more than if you bought them at one of those supply stores. If anything, it’s a good way to get rid of those party favors and make some cash!

I don’t usually include contests here, but this one is hard to pass up! Make your own 30-second Doritos ad and it could wind up playing during the Superbowl. Winners could earn up to $5 million – that’s a lot of chips! Here’s the story behind the contest. Go here to learn the rules. Good luck!

That’s it for this week. If you want to share a tip, send an email to with “Friday Freebies” in the subject line.
