Free Money for Making Reservations

Free Money for Making Reservations

Hello Everyone,

You all know how much your Discount Queen loves to save money, but I love earning FREE money even more.

One of my favorite things to do is to dine out with friends or family. However, before I just show up at a restaurant I always check OpenTable, first. This site lets you make reservations for free at 1000’s of restaurants around the USA.

Every time you make a reservation you will earn 100 points. There are some restaurants that reward you with 1000 points if you dine during their “off times.”

Once you earn 2000 points you are able to exchange your points for $20 dining certificate. However, you don’t have to redeem the points for the certificate when you get to 2000 points. You can let them keep accumulating. 4000 points are $40, 5000 points are $50, and so on.

This is a wonderful and FREE way to earn FREE money.  How could anyone turn their back on this wonderful opportunity.  So, next time you are looking to dine out, make sure to make  reservation via OpenTable, first.

Plus-Size Gals Rejoice with Gwynnie Bee

Standard

This post is for all plus-size ladies. I feel your pain when it comes to shopping for stylish looking outfits in extended sizes. First of all, many stores still carry styles that look like they could be used as drapes or tablecloths when not being worn. Secondly, many of the stores that carry plus-sized clothing “hide” the department up on the second or third floor in a back corner, as if extended-size clothing was something illegal like heroin or cocaine. Lastly, some of the manufacturers say the clothing is “plus-sized,” but the clothing is not cut correctly and is really “skinny” clothing with more flow.

Thanks to Gywynnie Bee plus-size ladies who wear from sizes 10-32 can all rejoice. Now you can rent gorgeous and stylish outfits for reasonable prices every month. Plus, if you love the outfit you can purchase it at a discount!!  Right now Gwynnie Bee is offering a 30-days for FREE. You can choose the 1, 2, or 3 piece plan, and get this plan for FREE for 30-days. There is NO OBLIGATION and you can cancel (very easily) online, if you decide not to continue.

Go to Gwynnie Bee NOW to check out all the great clothing options and sign-up NOW!  You have nothing to lose.  So, don’t delay. The FREE 30-day trial is a limited time offer. Go to Gwynnie Bee right NOW.

Go Out and Have FUN for Le$$ Money

Standard

I don’t know about you, but the Discount Queen LOVES to go out and have fun.  Having new experiences makes life more interesting, but going out shouldn’t mean choosing between a fun night out and making your car payment or light bill.  There are many ways to go out and experience things like a restaurant you’ve never been too, some pampering, like a massage, or even seeing a live show without causing your wallet to cry the “I’m so Broke I Could Cry” blues.

Here are a few ways to go out and have fun without spending tons of money:

Join Restaurant.com.  This site lets you purchase gift certificates to participating restaurants in amounts of $10, $25, $50, or $100 at a fraction of that cost. The “normal” price is usually $10 for a $25 gift certificate.  **HOWEVER** I highly suggest joining their site (it’s FREE), and getting on their mailing list.  You will then be notified when the company is offering sale on their certificates.  Typically the sale price is $4 for a $25 certificate, but I have seen them goes as low as $2 for a $25 certificate. This is when you LOAD up on certificates. They are good FOREVER, they can be EXCHANGED for different restaurants, and if a location goes out of business or stops taking certificates, the company will notify you so you can choose another restaurant. This is a wonderful way to check out a place you’ve been dying to visit, but didn’t want to risk paying full price for the “unknown.”  Go to http://www.restaurant.com to learn more and explore all the restaurants in your area.

If you want to do more than just eat out, there are many sites that offer exciting options at a discount. Many of these sites offer discounts of 50% or more for activities like like shows, massages (and other forms of pampering), comedy, and of course dining out. Two of my favorite sites to check for discounts is Groupon and Living Social. However, to save yourself some time and to compare the best deal I highly suggest signing up for Yipit.com.  Yipit searches multiple discount sites to find the best deals in your area on a plethora of activities.

My final suggestion for locating things to do at a major discount is Goldstar EventsGoldstar offers tickets to stage shows like Oz, Rent, Book of Mormon, and many others at up to 50% off. They also offer tickets to music productions, comedy shows, tribute bands, and so much more.  Be sure to check out Goldstar to explore all the fun you could be having in your own area for LE$$ money.

FREE Meal on Your Birthday for Joining E-Clubs! Part 1

Standard

Hello to all my Discount Queen Lovers,

Today I’m starting a new mini-series.  I am going to provide you with links to restaurants who will provide you with a free meal on your birthday just for signing up to get periodic emails from each location.  Several locations will give you coupon to get a discount or freebie that’s good right away. In most cases you will need to use that coupon within 10 to 14 days, but each deal will have its own expiration date.

Please keep in mind in this series I am focusing only on establishments that either give you a free meal or give you a BOGO deal for your birthday.  I am not including locations that give a slice of cake or a cookie on your special day.  Call me old fashioned, but I remember when nearly ALL restaurants gave you a slice of cake with a candle FREE on your birthday.  You didn’t have to sign-up for a special club to get a piece of cake, one time per year.

Just click on the highlighted restaurant names below, and you will be redirected to the site’s website to sign-up for their E-clubs.  Please keep in mind some of these locations are not found nationwide, and may be local to one area of the USA.

I will be presenting more locations over the next several weeks.

Thank you for stopping by, and don’t forget:  Have fun shopping, but SHOP SMART!
