T.G.I. Friday's Rewards Program

I recently signed up for T.G.I. Friday's new rewards program called Give Me More Stripes. I wanted to tell you about it in case you're missing out on the savings!

Right away when you sign up for the program you'll receive a free appetizer or dessert coupon in your e-mail. You'll also get a one-time pass to skip the line if you come on a night when the restaurant is busy. They will send you an actual sturdy plastic card in the mail which helps you earn points when you eat at the restaurant. For each dollar you spend, you'll receive one stripe (or point). Every time you spend $100 (which unfortunately doesn't take long these days) you'll receive a coupon for a free food item up to $8.

Other perks in the future may include complimentary welcome tastings, upgrades on beverages, and preferred seating and parking. I just received an e-mail coupon for 1-cent appetizers at the bar when you purchase any beverage (I'm hoping it doesn't have to be alcohol) and $1 entree with the purchase of another entree. So you'll definitely get some great deals when you become a member of this club!

If you're ready to get started and join the club, you can click here! You will even have the opportunity to personalize your membership card.

Nature's Source Review and Giveaway

I recently joined the Bzz Agent campaign for Nature's Source Natural Cleaners made by S.C. Johnson. I was pleasantly surprised when I received a HEAVY package in the mail with all 4 types of cleaners to try: Natural Glass & Surface Cleaner by Windex, Natural Bathroom Cleaner by Scrubbing Bubbles, Natural All-Purpose Cleaner by Scrubbing Bubbles, and Toilet Bowl Cleaner by Scrubbing Bubbles.

I have to say, in the past I have been a little skeptical of the natural cleaning products, wondering if they would be as effective as traditional formulas. However, when I tried these products out around my house, I couldn't believe how similar the results were. I was especially impressed with the Natural Glass & Surface Cleaner by Windex, because it worked just as well as my regular Windex, with no streaking, and had a great citrusy smell.

The most important reason I like these products is the fact that they are better for the environment. It's a simple way to make an impact but you don't have to sacrifice quality in the process. All the cleaners are made with natural agents like coconut oil and purified water and they are manufactured in a facility that uses renewable energy from a landfill. In addition, the bottles are recyclable and nothing is tested on animals. You can feel good knowing you're buying something that is responsibly produced.

I would definitely recommend this line of Nature's Source Cleaners to anyone who wants to keep their home clean while doing something good for this planet. What's not to love about that? And here's something else to love: it's giveaway time!!! I have 6 coupons for a FREE Nature's Source product of your choice to give to 6 lucky winners! All you have to do is leave a comment on this post. Nothing complicated, just say something. I do love to read your comments, though, so the more you have to say, the better!
