1 Bright Side, 2 not so much for 2/5/10

Hello all. Sorry for not posting much so far today, I have been running a few errands and catching up on mailing out the coupon requests.

Though I have not had a Big Mac in years, I decided to try a McD Big Mac snack wrap. For a $1.49 you get a wrap that contains a McD’s burger patty (cut/chopped) and all the other stuff that goes into a Big Mac. With my B1G1 coupon, from the WOW! MORE McD Coupon sheets, I drove away with food for less then 2 bucks.

You might be wondering if I really just ordered the snack wrap, and yes, that was all I ordered because I ALWAY have at least a 6 pack of FREE Publix Water in my car. I figured that for a buck forty-nine that I couldn’t go wrong, though my Dr. and Kathy would tell me otherwise. Very easy to hold, and yes, it tastes like a Big Mac. Plus, after you are done, you do not feel stuffed due to the buns that the original uses. Would I get another one of these, yes, but I don’t usually eat at McD’s. When I go with our kids I usually steal a few of their nuggets and fries.

After running some errands, I decided to try the KIND bar at Starbucks. Of the three outlets I either drove to or called on my phone, only one of them even knew about the promo and that store did not know about it until someone told them about it today. These are not Starbucks inside Super Targets, but regular stand alone/part of a strip center outlets. I tried the store in Ocoee, and they said that they did not know about the promo either until this morning. Oh well, so much for my using my Starbucks GC on some coffee while I sampled the KIND bar flavors.

Now, for the really fun part, that I predicted to friends, but gave the Egg Board (the people that brought us that jingle, “The Incredible Edible Egg”) the benefit of doubt. I found out about the two hoops to jump through on Facebook offer the other day, and alarms were already sounding in my head. You know that as soon as the opened the link to get the coupons, the servers were going to get jammed, and people would be unhappy. Signed on to Facebook at around 11:45 and yep, there are some mighty unhappy people. No, I have not yet received my coupon for FREE Eggs, have you? WOW! As I type this I have been trying to get my FREE egg coupon, I have advanced to the form. Here is what it looks like:

BTW, talking about Facebook, have you become a Fan of FrugalFloridian?

Now I just sit back and wait for the coupon to arrive via email, so far, no dice. Has been about 20 minutes or so.

Now I am going back to figure out the shopping list for our Publix run later this afternoon.
