Where do the free item coupons come from?


Christy April 6, 2012 at 8:46 pm

@Amy I got the FREE pop coupon from My Coke Rewards, I redeemed some rewards points for the coupon.

The other coupons came from companies who were offering coupons for FREE products. I requested them both about a month ago.

I’m thinking that the target coupon is no longer available for the candy land game?


Christy April 9, 2012 at 1:13 pm

@Jenea You are correct, the coupons for the Candy Land game are no longer available. I listed them under a heading that says “deals that are no longer available”, but I wanted people to know how I got the deal. Does that make sense?
