Mahatma Rice Giveaway!

I'm a big fan of Mahatma Rice and was asked by BzzAgent if I wanted to try it out. So of course I said yes! I received a package of Basmati Rice and Jasmine Rice. I cooked both of them so that we could have a taste test. Results? They were both yummy! Each one had a little different smell and taste to them but they were both really good. The grains were really long and were not as starchy. The kids loved them. I had fixed Hawaiian Chicken for dinner that night and the Jasmine rice went really well with it!

Would you like to try it out? I have coupons for a free 2 lb. bag of Basmati Rice and a free 2 lb. bag of Jasmine Rice (you get both coupons). And I have enough for 4 lucky winners! So, leave a comment telling me your thoughts on Jasmine or Basmati rice (or if you haven't tried them...what rice do you prefer?). Leave your comment by next Tuesday, March 23, 11:59 p.m.

Another Diaper Deal

If you are in need of newborn diapers, or if you like to buy diapers for baby gifts, has a great deal on Luvs Newborn Diapers. You can get a package of 38 diapers for $6.49. There's no limit to this price (as long as the diapers on in stock...right now they are). There is also a Luvs coupon for $1 off your first package of Luvs diapers. also has some other diapers on sale that you might want to check out.

If you purchase $49 or more, your shipping is free. If you are new to, make a minimum $49 purchase and enter code ANNS3709 and you will receive $10 off your order!

Like I mentioned above, if you need newborn diapers or like to give them as baby gifts, this is a great deal!

FREE Money!

If you purchase anything online and haven't signed up for Mr. Rebates yet, you need to do it! It's free money!

When you are ready to do an online purchase, simply go to the Mr. Rebates website, search the store you are looking for, click on that store and the store information will come up. It will have the rebate percentage you will get back for making a purchase as well as any coupon codes that are available for that store. Then you click on that store and Mr. Rebates will link you to that store. I have looked into MANY cash back sites and rebates sites and I keep coming back to Mr. Rebates. They seem to have the highest percentage cash back...and their coupon codes are always up to date.

When you make a purchase the rebate percentage will go into your account (may take up to 7 days of when the item is purchased or shipped). Once the money is in your account, it will be considered "pending" for up to 90 days (to make sure you don't have any returns). After 90 days it will be considered "available". When you are ready to "cash out" (you need $10 available in your account), you can request a check or have it sent via paypal.

If you haven't signed up, go Mr. Rebates here and get an extra $5 added to your account. That's free money!

Need a magazine?

I received an offer from 5 of my friends and they will get a $5 gift card to If you would like to be one of my "friends", send me an email ( by this Friday and I'll send you the "invitation". Your $5 gift card will come in an email. Also, this is for new customers only.

Possibly more savings? Sometimes you can't combine offers but try this and see...
Once you have your $5 gift card, go to through Mr. Rebates and you could get 30% rebate! It's worth a try...or if you are already an existing customer and are looking for a magazine subscription, this is a great rebate! (and it's only available for a limited time)

I have bought from and they have a good selection with already discounted prices. With the gift card and/or 30% rebates, you can get a good deal.
