Home Depot Receipts Emailed

With every retail store trying to collect my email address I usually automatically deny requests for email addresses at the till.  But I was using the self check out one day, and when the display asked if I wanted my receipt emailed to me I thought why not.

I found out today, that they remember that preference to the credit card.  This is very helpful for me, because I go to Home Depot quite a bit for any maintenance purchases for my rentals, and I need to keep the receipts for taxes.  Saves me from having to scan in my receipts.

Canada Automobile Association Savings

With the marriage, car registration, and address changes that happened lately, I've been to the Alberta Motor Association more often then I've been in years.  This makes me appreciate my membership a lot more.

For starters, with most registries you have to pay for your fees with debit or cash, but at AMA I can pay with my credit card.

Also, I always get discount movie tickets with my AMA memebership.  But in my last visit in I just happen to glance at the rewards pamphlet while waiting in line.  I'm surprised at the savings that are applicable to me.  There was a 25% off at my regular dry cleaners, discount entry to the Zoo, discount at food places etc.  It's too much to list here.  But the point is I always thought that AMA discounts doesn't much apply to me, but I was wrong.  I'm going to add it to my list of places to check for discounts before buying anything or paying for any services.  All the discounts/rewards are posted online.  If you are not in Alberta, go to CAA Rewards and choose your province to look for deals more relavant to you.

Johnson & Johnson Healthy Essentials Baby Freebies

I have read that Johnson & Johnson gives out a welcome pack for people expecting babies if we call or email them. I gave the email route a try.  They told me to sign up for the Healthy Essentials.  I did, and yesterday I got this coupon for a Johnson's Baby Take Along Pack ($5.99 at Babies R Us)

If interested here is how you can get one:

  • Sign up for Healthy Essentials.  
  • As you are filling out the information, be sure to expand the 'Your Household' part of the form, and fill the part about expecting a baby.
  • After you submit the form a message will say you are eligible for a trial of the Johnson's Baby Take Along Pack, do you want it?  Say yes.
  • In a few weeks the coupon will show up in the mail.  My coupon doesn't expire until June 2015 so plenty of time to use it as well.

You can also earn points on Healthy Essentials by printing and using their coupons etc. and redeem points for gift packs.
