More Ways to Save Money has beautiful cards that can be personalized with your own text and photos.  They offer free shipping to send the card to you, or will charge the price of a stamp to send it to someone else.  The cards themselves usually run about $2.99, but they typically offer a free card about once a month.  If you plan ahead to the next occasion you’ll need a card, you will seldom have to purchase one.  The code right now is FRIEND12, which expires 8/5/12.

Recyclebank  offers opportunities for learning about going green and rewards you points for actions.  You can redeem the points for gift cards, high value coupons, magazine subscriptions and more.

I just won a $50 gift card to Starbucks from entering a contest listed at Penniless Teacher.  I’ve also won a $100 Walmart gift card, a case of cookies, and some other cool stuff by entering contests.  Blogs often have few people who enter contests, so the odds are really good.

MyCokeRewards is another place to enter codes that you find online or on Coke products to get gift cards, magazine subscriptions, or high value coupons.

Freecycle is a great organization that gives people the opportunity to pass on used items, avoiding the landfill and saving money.  You can post requests and offers, though general courtesy is understood to post an offer before posting a request.  Additionally, it is expected that if you receive an item from Freecycle, you won’t be selling that item.  Be sure to let someone know where you will be picking something up for safety’s sake.
