How to spot a Spam/Phishing sites

Since there seems to be quite a few fake freebies out there here is how to spot Spam/Phishing sites:

  • The “freebie/sample” is way to good to be true.

This should be a signal to start your investigation. If you are overly excited about the freebie, then it is probably too good to be true and you should do some research before filling in your information.

  • The site is an unfamiliar web address.

If they are offering a product sample and it is not the company’s main website, it is probably not going to be legit. Recent example: If they want to give you a sample of “Palmolive” but it’s not coming from Palmolive.com then you need to see how the website is affiliated with the company.

  • The site is “bare”.


If the site is simple with very little content, it probably means they created it just to steal your information.

How to play detective!

This will give you the Domain’s name, address and when the site was created. This is usually the 1st thing I do. If the site went live within a few days, I am almost positive the freebie is a scam.

  • When on the site, look at their “Contact Us” information.

Usually Spam/Phishing sites will copy other site’s information or not have any contact information whatsoever. If you can find a phone number, call! It doesn’t hurt to ask them yourself.

  • Google!

I will Google the site to see what comes up about them. If no information comes up, the site is probably new and spam. If it comes with with legit information then you can read further on to see if you can trust them or not.

I am usually pretty on top of the spam sites and try to post which ones to avoid before you get to them. If you find one and are unsure, don’t be afraid to ask me to look it up for you.

Do you have any tips on how to spot a Spam site? Please feel free to leave them in the comments and I will add them to this post.

Review Thursday’s! ~ Vemon Bite

I usually try to do these on Thursday but with ONW I got behind. What this is…is I pick a newer sample that most of us have likely received and critique it!

This week I would like to discuss Vemon Bite Cold Blast Arctic Punch! In the comment section let us know your thoughts. I will give you a guideline that you may choose to follow.

  • Sample size and packaging.
  • Smell.
  • Texture.
  • Effectiveness.
  • Would you purchase this item in the future?

Please leave your reviews in the comment section. Thank you for your participation!

Here is my review:

  • Sample size and packaging: Nice! They sent a full size bottle!
  • Smell: Cough syrup!
  • Texture: Thick.. like cough syrup! What I ended up doing is mixing it with Club Soda. It actually was really good and tasted like Fruit Punch with bubbles.
  • Effectiveness: Didn’t feel much and I am very sensitive to Caffeine and had already had some Caffeine in the morning.
  • Would I purchase this in the future? Maybe if I could get it on sale with a coupon for inexpensive. I used to drink ALO T of energy drinks and really cut down after reading all the bad side effects but I do enjoy one when cleaning or if I hadn’t gotten much sleep.

Please check out this link to see past reviews: Sample review.

Possible freebies at Walmart

From what I read on moneysavingmom.com.. you can print 2 new coupons at healthychoice.com

  • $2 off any frozen HC meal (exp 10/7)
  • $2 off any Fresh Mixers (exp 10/7)

I personally do know there are Healthy Choice meals priced at $2 which would make them free after coupons. Not all meals are though and do vary from $2-$3.50.

It’s also been stated that the Fresh Mixers are priced around $2-$2.50 making them free or really close to it.

Another Walmart freebie I read was Morton’s Season All 5 oz + product. You can print a $1 off coupon from Coupons.com. Supposedly it’s priced around $1-$1.58. I will verify my Walmart’s price for you tomorrow. (exp 12/31)

I posted the other day about Old El Paso Taco Seasoning being 8 cents each @ Walmart after coupons. Well, this is still around but it was only $0.38 cents at the big Walmart and $0.84 cents at my local Neighborhood Walmart. Just an FYI.

Possible spam/phishing site (Palmolive “freebie”)

I figured I would post since I have seen this on numerous sites. I am almost 100% positive that “Enjoythesamples.com” is a phishing site. The offer posted on other blogs is for a free sample of Palmolive. What makes me believe it is not a real site is that fact the business # is to another website and there is no zipcode box. Also the site went live yesterday. I use to fall for these “deals” but now that I know they are pretty easy to spot. Just a post to be aware 🙂

Paper Culture~ Modern Stationary (review)

Paper Culture is 100% recycled modern stationary. They have sent me an assortment of sample cards to review.

How is Paper Culture is eco friendly?

  • Their paper is FSC certified as 100% post consumer recycled paper (Note: FSC trademarks © 1996 Forest Stewardship Council A.C.)
  • Their paper is Green-e certified and/or Green Seal certified
  • Generated by wind power
  • Elemental chlorine free
  • All envelopes and packaging made from recycled paper

But beyond the paper, they wanted to create a company that not only offers eco friendly products, but also one that operates business with the following ideals:

  • Minimize our overall impact on the environment
  • We are a CarbonFree® Partner of Carbonfund.org
  • Funnel support to organizations that promote sustainability through Paper Culture Cares, the organization we created to promote causes that are close to the ideals of our founders and our community. A portion of all of our proceeds are donated to Paper Culture Cares.

The 1st thing that attracted me to the card samples was the weight of the paper. The weight is the first sign of a well made card; sturdy and able to stand up on its own.

The 2nd thing that attracted me to the cards were the exclusive designs. They are up to date with all of the latest styles and colors. Their cards are also round corner cut, which adds a soft edge. Besides their exclusive designs, you are also able to personalize and add your own photos to baby announcements and other life events.

Even though I found their cards very cute, I thought they were missing something. Being a crafter, I would like to see embossing or glitter added to the mix. I could see purchasing these cards and then adding my own touch.

Please do check out their site and add your email to their mailing list for exclusive discounts. Right now you can save $15 on purchases of $75 +. This offer is valid until 9/30.

~This is my personal and honest opinion. I was not paid to review this product.

FREE 8 x 10 photo at Walmart

Get a free 8 x 10 photo at Walmart with ANY 1-hour print order. To keep this really frugal purchase ONE 4 x 6 1-hour photo for 15 cents and choose in-store pickup. Deal expires 9/30

After you purchase your 1-hour photo, they will email you a promo code to use to get your 8 x 10 print. You have till 12/31/09 to redeem your 8 x 10.

FREE Glade Sense & Spray’s at Target (YMMV)


Kara emailed me to let me know she was able to score Glade Sense & Spray for free + overage at Target. They were priced at $5.87 with $2 Target peelies attached. Stack that Target coupon up with the $4 printable coupon for a great steal. You can print a $4 coupon from Right at Home for any Glade Sense & Spray.

Has anyone else found this deal? What do you think of them? I have quite a few stockpiled from previous deals. My husband HATES them. I don’t hate them but I do agree that it’s hard to find that right placement. I really like the Linen spray. It reminds me of fresh laundry. The Apple Cinnamon isn’t bad but to my nose seems really “perfumy” .

MckLinky Blog Hop: Remembering 9/11

From Blog Hop:
This week’s Blog Hop theme is “REMEMBERING 9/11“. Though many would like us to forget, there is still an enemy who wants nothing less than our total destruction. Lets honor those who lost their lives on that day, and since then because of 9/11, by posting our thoughts (where were you that day, what do you recall about it)…You can leave it in the comment section.

I was a senior in High School and in my 1st class when a announcement came over the speakers asking us to hurry to our next class, no stopping to change books, just get to the room. There the TVs were on and we had seen the recap of the 1st plane crash.

A second announcement came explaining what was happenening and to let us know we were on lockdown till further notice. Scared, I remember calling my mom to see if she had the TV on also. We then spent the rest of the day watching the new reporting and praying for those who had lost their lives.

CVS deal scenario! $11 in ECB

I put together a deal for Walgreens and I figured CVS might feel left out if I didn’t do one for them 🙂 This one does include more money OOP but you’ll make it up with ECB in the end.. Nice way to build up your ECB stash! New to CVS? Shopping Frugal: CVS 101

Deal Scenario:
Purchase 3 Aussie Shampoo, Conditioner or Styler 6-14 oz $2.99 (limited to 3)
Purchase Scope Outlast or Crest with Scope Outlast Toothpaste 5.8 oz $3.49 (limited to 2)
Purchase Schick Quattro for Women Razor or Cartridges buy one at $9.99 get one FREE
~
$5 off $25 coupon to CVS
~Use 2 $0.50/1 Crest coupon from 8/30 PG
~Use 2 $4/1 coupon from the 8/23SS (Schick) (regional coupon, not in FL papers)
~Or the August issue of All You magazine (Schick)
Pay $11.94 plus tax
Get back $11 in ECB!
“Final price” 94 cents plus tax for all of the above!

I did this deal today and only spent 94 cents as I had $10 in ECB from taking a survey from
CVS Advisor Panel! Also I wanted to note that usually the ECB print out as one but this time I got 2 at the end of my receipt one for $5 and one for $6 which is nice if I want to do a smaller transaction.

Publix ~ BOGO 64 oz Gatorade 50 cents each!

While at Publix today I saw that 6 packs of Gatorade or 64 oz bottles were BOGO. The 64 oz bottles were $2.50 each BUT! There was a tear pad with 75 cent off coupons right next to the display which was on the end cap. So while your shopping at Publix check and see if you find these coupons too. I used two coupons and purchased 2 bottles for 50 cents each! I don’t usually purchase Gatorade but for 50 cents I couldn’t pass it up 🙂

CVS clearancing Summer items at 90%

Lana emailed me and let me know this morning that she was able to snag kid “crocs” for 79 cents each and that there were many other summer items discounted at 90%!!! I went to CVS today and of course mine here in FL ( summer seems to be year round) was only 75% but it was till a great deal. Besides pool toys and flip flops I saw a childrens digital camera originally $29.99 now down to $7.49!! If you have a chance I HIGHLY suggest checking out your local CVS and seeing what you can snag and save for next summer or even for holiday gifts. Don’t forget to Print off a $5 off $25 coupon to CVS and bring it along for an even sweeter deal!

NEW chatroom!

I have added a new chatroom to Shopping Frugal. As you all might know we have been using Webby Chat (Blue “Chat” tab on left hand side) but they do seem to have a few issues and it also cost money each month. I decided to look for a free alternative to try out and found AOL had one. The AOL chat does not have a “bell” but I will try to figure out something to do for ONW night. Any suggestions? The chatroom will hold an unlimited amount of chatters and it’s free. You do need to sign up for a AOL Screen name (free). I will still be keeping the free version of Webby Chat and if AOL does not end up working out for us we can then go back to it. The free version of Webby Chat hold 10 chatters. Let me know what you think 🙂 To check out the new chatroom in a new window: Shopping Frugal (AIM chat)

Fun deal scenario at Walgreens spending $3!

I wanted to put together some deal scenarios for new couponers since this is a fun week at Walgreens. This is for the new couponer who does not have any RR (Register Rewards) on hand. We will be spending UNDER $5!

Transaction #1:


Purchase 1 Scrubbing Bubbles Shower Cleaner Kits $9.99
Use the $7 coupon from
here
Pay $3 + tax
Get back $3 RR
Final cost: just tax!

Transaction #2:

Purchase Glade Sense & Spray Starter Kit $5.99
Purchase two 2 oz Glade candles for $4
~Use the $4 S&S coupon from
here
~Or the $4 S&S 8/23SS
~Use the $3/2 any Glade coupon from the 8/9SS
~Or $3/2 any Glade from
here
~Use your $3 RR from Transaction #1
Pay just tax!
Get back a total of $3 in RR! (1 $2 and 1 $1)

So for 2 transactions you will have spent OOP $3 + tax (tax here in FL (6%) would be a total of $1.20) and will have $3 RR to spend on another transaction making it technically free!

You can keep rolling Transaction #1 and #2!

Transaction #1:

Purchase 1 Scrubbing Bubbles Shower Cleaner Kits $9.99
Purchase 2 Trident Layers Gum 2/$2
Purchase 1 “filler” item (gum, pencil, etc.. as low in price as possible. This is done for coupon=item ratio)
~Use the $1/2 coupon from
here
~Use the $7 coupon from
here
~Use the $1 RR from Transaction #2
~Use the $2 RR from Transaction #2
Pay as low $1 and change + tax
Get back $4 RR (1 $3 RR & $1 RR)
Final cost: ? depends on “filler” item price

Transaction #2:


Purchase Glade Sense & Spray Starter Kit
$5.99
Purchase two 2 oz Glade candles for $4
~Use the $4 S&S coupon from
here
~Or the $4 S&S 8/23SS
~Use the $3/2 any Glade coupon from the 8/9SS
~Or $3/2 any Glade from
here
~Use your $3 RR from Transaction #1
Pay just tax!
Get back a total of $3 in RR! (1 $2 and 1 $1)

At this point you’ll still have the $1 RR from Tran #1 and then now $3 worth of RR from Tran #2 totaling $4 in RR to spend while you only spent as low as $1 & change + tax!
