Awesome Week! A full size Aveeno....that is a great free sample...I'm impressed!

Happy Mailbox Monday....and I can see you've been busy with surveys. I'm trying to sneak more in too! :-)

I missed out on the Aveeno sample - tried to request on my iphone but it wouldn't go through -and when I finally got home - all gone. I thought - hey think of all the free lotion you got with coupons and I felt better! LOL

Have a great week!

Amy Lyn, how do you avoid sites that turn out to be malicious? I'm always scared to click on unknown sites (and especially now that my computer was slammed with a virus that will result in it having to be rebuilt!). I'm just so leery...

Love you!

I've just been lucky I guess. I don't post ANYTHING that I haven't tried out myself first. There are a lot of things I find that I do not post just because I'm not sure about them.

I think having a Mac helps since there are so many security features in the operating system itself. Any site that asks for information you don't want to give out (SS#, CCard#) for freebies or coupons is junk. Leave it alone. I also don't give my totally correct info. Obviously, if I want a sample or coupon to actually arrive, I have to use my real address, but I don't use my real DOB or phone number (and a lot of the times, those are not required...watch to see what is actually required by each site) and I have a separate email address for when I have to input one. I check it about once a week just to make sure there aren't any confirmations that I need to click to get the sample or whatever.

I also have a separate email for my survey sites. That way only survey invites come to that address. I never miss one that way. Any site that requires you to pay to do surveys is junk too. You should never have to pay to do them! I'm working on a post with the sites I use since I've made quite a bit this year on them.

Good question, hope my answer helps.
