Apply to host an Old Navy spring accessories party and more on Crowdtap

 I just found out about a great new site called Crowdtap that allows you to tap in to engage with brands, test products, and earn cash while helping charities at the same time!  I also noticed that they have an awesome opportunity available through 4/29 where you can apply to host an Old Navy Spring Accessories Party through Crowdtap!  If you are chosen to be a host, you will receive a kit that will include the following items in your kit…
*5 Old Navy tote bags
*2 spring scarves
*1 pair of spring shades
*1 spring fedora hat
*1 spring saddle bag
*1 Old Navy Spring Accessories Sampling party booklet
*1 dry erase

To apply to host the Old Navy Spring Accessories party

1.) Invite your friends via Facebook
After you have signed up and been accepted as a party host, you can schedule a party on Facebook and invite your friends.
2.) Get your party kit in the mail
Your party kit, filled with samples and other goodies, should arrive in a few days.
3.) Host the party
Open the kit, and distribute the goods. After you and your friends have had a chance to try out the the samples, you'll fill out surveys and submit photos to provide feedback.
4.) Get rewards and points
After the surveys have been filled out and submitted, you will receive a cash reward for hosting the party. You will also be awarded Crowdtap points, which qualify you for new opportunities down the road.

Please keep in mind though they may (or may not) allow you to apply for the hosting opportunities but they will not chose you until you reach a certain level by participating on the site.

New to Crowdtap?

If you're looking for a way to help out charities and get rewarded in return, you may want to check out Crowdtap.  Crowdtap is an online community that connects consumers with brands so they can directly influence new product and marketing ideas, while earning cash and free products in return!  With Crowdtap, you'll get to tap in to engage with brands, test products, and earn cash while helping charities at the same time!  Here are a few well-known charities promoted on their site:

*Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation – funds efforts for breast cancer research, education, advocacy, health, etc. (I signed up to this one.)
*Autism Speaks – goal is to find the causes, treatments, and cure for autism and help those with autism and their families
*Pencils of Promise – help build schools for children who may not receive any education in developing nations around the world.
*ASPCA – mission is to provide effective means for the prevention of animal cruelty to animals
*American National Red Cross – provide emergency assistance, disaster relief, and education in the US and other countries.
…and more!

How Does it Work?

By signing up with Crowdtap you will be presented with a variety of opportunities to complete and you'll be helping brands make major marketing decisions as well as help spread the buzz about products you like!  You'll also be able to answer "Info questions" that will help them better match you with more opportunities.  How do you earn cash rewards?  You can earn cash by earning top awards as a result of providing meaningful responses in discussions and participating in discussions daily.  Also, once you reach level 5 you will receive a 5% cash bonus for every $10 you earn.

1.) Go HERE and sign up for a Crowdtap account with your Facebook account
2.) Answer a few polls to help brands target you by your interests
3.) View Opportunities and participate with the brands and offers that interest you
4.) Earn status, rewards, charity – the more you do, the more you get, the more you give!

How do the Rewards Work?

After your account reaches at least $10, you'll be able to redeem your earnings in the following ways…
*Cash Rewards 
*Gift Cards
*Help Charities 
*Free Products 
Keep in mind that you'll need to earn at least $9.99 before you can "redeem" your earnings (you'll just click on the "redeem link at top") AND 5% will automatically go to the charity you select on signup which Crowdtap will match. Then just choose to donate the rest to a charity or get an Amazon gift card e-mailed to you!
Also, the points you earn determine your "level" and each level you obtain gives you privileges on the site and showcases your accomplishment.  However, keep in mind that points and dollars are completely separate in Crowdtap.  Points will help you level up, unlock badges, and compete with your friends while moving up the leaderboard.  Dollars translate to real money and can be redeemed for Amazon gift cards or donated to your selected charity.  Individual actions can earn you points, dollars, or both but points and dollars are not directly related to one another.
*If you are already a member of Crowdtap, please feel free to leave a comment and let us know how it works for you!

(Thanks Hip2Save)

Freebies and Cheabies in March

(First of all left me apologize for the delay in doing this. April has been a very busy month for me and I haven't had much time to do my usual activity. These are not all of my freebies for March since I left my Target, CVS and Harris Teeter visits out.) This was the Free Valspar paint sample with $5 coupon. 

Got 4 free Martini Gold non-alcoholic mixers with 5 FREE bottle coupons and tons of .55 coupons from Martini Gold.

OK magazine, L'Occitane sample and coupon, BK and McD coupons and two Lane Bryant coupons for $15 off $15 purchase. I used one recently and purchased 2 pair of earrings for a little over $7. They were having a B1G1 50% off jewelry sale and one pair of earrings was $15 and the other was $7.50 so after coupon I paid less than $4 for each pair.

Mags, Kohl's coupons, P&G coupons, Tangled Rapunzel fleece throw blanket for a little over $6 from Disney store, my VS splurge was 7 pair of undies for $23 with 2 secret reward cards worth anywhere from $10 to $500 and I redeemed one for some tops and it was a $10 off rewards code.

Bed, Bath and Beyond coupon, Bayer aspirin sample and Playtex sample.

Target finds: The blue and grey sweats for my daughter were 1.48 each piece, the yellow fleece for my son was $3 and the champion jacket for my daughter was $3. The Propel waters were b1g1 free with a Target coupon

I hosted a Mommy Party and the sponsor was Nutella and these were all the free items my guests and I received.

JCP finds: This order total was $20 and I got 2 pajama pants for my son, 2 tops for me, a sweat jacket for me and black pants for my daughter.

Bed, Bath and Beyond had a "misprint" on their site. The candles were supposed to be $1.99 each but they had it for 18 for $1.99 and it is not uncommon for companies to cancel orders when they realize their mistake but they actually honored it and so after shipping I got all 18 for a little over $8

4 boxes of Raisin Bran Crunch from Amazon for $6.43

My Children's Place finds: everything was for my daughter but the socks. This is $36 worth of items and I paid $14 total.
There was a promotion on Disney Store that if you bought any theme park item you got free shipping so I got the recycle bag for 2.95 and the adorable Minnie Mouse light up shoes for my daughter for $8

VTech learning fun map from Target for $12.92

My Stock-N-Go order I paid a little under $10 for. Ambi complexion bar, 8 pack dial soap, Fix-a-flat, Jergen's natural glow and Norforms feminine item.

My Teddy Grahams I got 24 for $2.27 on Amazon after deal and $5 Amazon code coupon

Children's Place finds: 2 pair of shoes and a bag for my daughter and sneakers for my son. This was $73 worth of items I paid $30 for.

My purchase I paid $15.78 for. I got 3 free samples, Ivory 10 pack soap, Charmin 6 pack toilet paper, Bounty 8 pack paper towels, Soft and Beautiful oil sheen and Hollywood fashion tape deodorant removing sponge.

My Wet Seal purchases for $23 was shoes and a top.

Okay I am a $3 to $4 flower girl. I get my flowers from either Walmart or Harris Teeter but I treated myself to 18 roses on my anniversary from 1800 Flowers. The roses are normally $30 alone without shipping fees which are around $15 but I had a coupon code and just paid $23 for them total.
