Friday Freebies – Oct. 15th

This week’s roundup includes a free workout (good for tonight, so check it out NOW), a free cupcake and a few photo and Halloween tips.

Who doesn’t love a free cupcake? The folks at The Cake Shop will give out samples Saturday (Oct. 16) from 1 – 4 p.m. The yummy flavors include: apple pie, apple spice cake with apple filling and caramel buttercream, hot chocolate, chocolate cake with marshmallows and hot chocolate flavored buttercream, brown pecan, brown butter pecan cake with caramel filling and salted brown butter buttercream, gingerbread pear, and gingerbread cake with pears topped with a citrus cream cheese frosting. You can check out their site here to find a location near you. NOTE: The Stone Oak location is the only one participating in the giveaway.

Do you have photos collecting virtual dust on your camera or online? Now’s a good time to print them! Snapfish is offering to print 50 photos for 10 cents each and you can pick them up at your neighborhood Walgreens. If you’re not already storing your photos on Snapfish, you’ll need to register and upload them here. Choose which ones you want to print, then enter the code WGOTC50 at checkout to get your discount.

If you just need a couple of photo cards (and by couple, I actually mean TWO), here’s a coupon to print them at Wal-Mart.

Don’t destroy your old denim! Take your worn jeans to the nearest Gap store to get 30% off any pair of 1969 jeans. For a bigger discount, text denim to 36888. All Gap, Banana Republic and Old Navy card holders get 35% off.

From my inbox: How would you like a free workout? San Antonio Fit Club will give you access to its BeachBody workout on the first and third Friday of the month (though a change has been made for October and there’s a free class tonight). Just show up at 8 p.m. and be ready to sweat. No registration required. Note: the class ends around 9:15.

Have an old iPod and want to get your hands on a new one? You might consider trading in your old one at Toys R Us. You can trade up to three iPods now through October 23rd to get $100 towards the purchase of a new iPod. Check with your neighborhood store to see if it’s participating in the trade in program.

Have you checked out our Halloween section? Find some adult costume ideas, recipes, and you can even carve a virtual pumpkin (no gooey pumpkin guts to clean out).

If you’re a more advanced pumpkin carver, check out these patterns. Then, when you’re ready to show off your work, send us a photo to or post it on our Facebook page.

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