Friday Freebies – Dec. 17

This week’s roundup includes savings on board games, a free movie and ways to save while shopping online.

Board games make great holiday gifts! Hasbro will give you coupons for its games here.

Join Red Robin’s eclub to get a free burger on your birthday. They’ll even throw in a little freebie just for signing up!

Get in the holiday spirit on Wednesday (Dec. 22) at this free outdoor screening of “A Christmas Story.”

If you have a lot of coins stashed, now’s a good time to dump them at Coinstar. Now through Dec. 31, if you cash in $40 or more in coins, you’ll get an additional $10 in a gift card from retailers like, iTunes, Borders and Lowe’s. Read more about it here.

Shoppers, you might want to sign up for ebates. They’ll give you automatic rebates when you shop online.

While flipping through the pages of November’s In Style (yes, I know it’s December, but I just got around to it!), I spied a full page of savings for online shoppers. Apologies if they don’t help you finish your holiday shopping on time. If you missed them, here they are:

  • E-mail: – sign up to get a daily list of discounts, free stuff and tips in your inbox; – set your style and price ranges and get customized sale alerts on designer brands; – get e-mails with shipping discounts from retailers; – create a profile and get customized alerts on sales.
  • Online: – this widget knows when you’re shopping! When whatever you’re looking at is available on another site for a better price, the hand lets you know.
  • Sale Sites (members -only): –  beauty products at up to 85% off; – home decor at up to 70% off; – designer duds at up to 80% off; – babies and kids goods at up to 70% off. Note: once you’re a member of these sites, you can usually earn even more savings by recruiting a few friends to sign up.
  • If you’re on Twitter, you should follow these users to get coupon codes and web deals: @cheaptweet, @coupontweet, @earlybird and @fatwallet. PS – you should also be following us on Twitter!

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