Monster Team Gear and Coupon Policy

We have been a Monster Energy Drink loving family for years now and we are always on the look out for the best deals out there.  I was recently introduced to Monster Rehab by my good friend Diana and it tastes just like you are drinking iced tea (the good kind) and am really loving it!  My husband first loved the green one, then he moved on to the blue one and now he enjoys the purple one.  The purple one was recently on sale at a local supermarket but I could not find it anywhere else.  Since then, my good friend Diana told me that the Costco in Irvine has the 24 pack for about $30.00.  Only problem is that Irvine is about a hour and twenty minutes away.  Last time I was there I picked up some.  I guess we'll have to ask Diana if she can pick some up for us whenever she comes down and just pay her back since our Costco here does not carry the purple one.  Occasionally, Costco has a manufacturer coupon for $6 off per case.  I try to wait for those times to stock up but those promotions are so few and far between.

On the Monster Energy Drink website, I found out that they never offers online or printable coupons for Monster Energy Drinks.  Therefore all online or printable coupons out there are all fraudulent and should be reported to their Consumer Relations Department at 800-426-7367.

Monster Energy Drinks is offering Free Monster Team Gear when you purchase Monster Energy Drinks and mail in the can tabs and pay $4.95 shipping and handling per item.

Items Available:
Beanie - 25 tabs
Men's T-Shirt - 30 tabs
Women's T-Shirt - 30 tabs
Hooded Sweatshirt - 50 tabs

Recycling For Money

We pay a CRV on most of our bottled items when we purchase them in store so we also recycle them to get our five cents back for every CRV beverage container.  We recycle our own aluminum cans, glass bottles and plastic bottles to get our CRV monies back.

We recycle our CRV beverage containers, glass bottles, aluminum cans and plastic containers at One Earth Recycling at the 5980 Fairmont Ave. Ste. 106, San Diego, CA  92120 location.  If you like them on Facebook you get an additional two cents per pound.

The lids can be on the plastic bottles and if it is under 2 pounds or so, they count the plastic bottles individually.  Be careful because there are some plastic bottles that you cannot recycle for money.

Last time my friend Shanna and I took our recycling down, I redeemed $29.00 and she redeemed something like $26.00 worth of recyclables.  That is $29.00 back in my pocket and $26.00 back in hers.

Recycling is not only helping our environment but we are also putting money back in our pockets so it is a win win situation.'s Buy 1, Get 1 Free Promotion

Redbox Increases Prices For Daily Rentals

Effective Monday, October 31, 2011, Redbox will be increasing the daily rental rate from $1.00 to $1.20 citing
The price change is due to rising operating expenses, including new increases in debit card fees. Daily rental charges for Blu-ray™ Discs and video games won't change.** Additional-day charges for DVDs rented before 10/31 won't be affected, either.

In order to make the transition easier, Redbox will discount the first day of all online DVD rentals to $1.00 from 10/31 through 11/30. Additional rental days will be $1.20.***
This is their first price change in more then eight years.

Holiday Helpers

The holiday's are fast approaching and I have compiled a list of holiday helpers that can help us reach our monetary goal for the upcoming gift giving season without putting too much of a strain on our budgets.

Recently, there has been increased interest in companies that offer layaway programs because it allows the consumer to put down a small payment to hold their items and pay a little every month instead of paying for your items all at once.  Companies that offer layaway programs offer flexibility and convenience for the consumer.

Best Buy Layaway Program
KMART Layaway Program
Navy Exchange Layaway Program
Sears Layaway Program 
ToysRUs Layaway Program

Recycling your ununsed electronics is a good thing both for the consumer and for the environment.  It allows us to utilize trade-in programs and in exchange we get credit for our unused electronics.  Check out this article for more information regarding Buy Back Programs vs. Trade-In Programs.
