Mailbox Round Up

Here's what came in the mail last week:

Magazines (all free):
eWeek
Wine Spectator
Yachts International (I can dream...)
Voice of the Martyrs (with flyer Is secret Christian work "illegal"?

Samples:
Airborne

Other Stuff:
Coupon for BOGO Starkist Tuna (from Vocalpoint)
5 $1 off Coke coupons (from RecycleBank)
BOGO Soft Scrub coupon (did you know you can request it to be sent to you if you can't get a Bricks coupon to print???)
Betty Crocker calendar (wish it had coupons!)
$10 payout from Ipsos I-Say survey panel

Laugh of the week:
This is what a card said that came with the Airborne:
"Thanks for being a Fan! Unfortunately, you were not amog the first 2,000 fans to sign up for our Free Sample Giveaway. But we are truly grateful for your support, so enjoy this sample of Airborne!"
Huh???

How did you do?

Proud to be part of Mailbox Monday on A Frugal Friend.

Hello Amy Looby;

I received the same Airborne. It was confusing and I've lost the link but I think they meant that they were out of samples so they sent a full size instead. I laughed too! :)

Happy Mailbox Monday!

Looks like you had a great week! I have been so busy this week -- I haven't had any time for my coffee and blog reading :(

I love that you can request that they send you the coupons if you aren't able to print them...the bad thing sometimes is that they print them to send to you -- and if the expiration date is quick -- you have to be quick to use them sometimes too.

Have a great week -- OH and it's my day on the food blog tomorrow -- if you have time -- stop by and check out the yummiest cheesecake you have ever seen!!

Do you contact Bricks or the company? That's awesome...I haven't had trouble in awhile, but when I first started printing coupons I ran into some problems.....it's great to know.

Have a great week!
