Not many people know this about me, but I've never spoken a single word aloud in public. It absolutely terrifies me. The simple act of ordering dinner at a restaurant involves at least an hour of charades and even then my order is rarely correct.
In completely unrelated news, my friends stopped asking me to dinner years ago.0

For the third year in a row, CBS is letting new users watch all of our favorite CBS shows for free by offered a free month of CBS All Access if you join before January 27, 2020. With All Access, you can stream NCAA football and NFL football on Saturday and Sunday, as well hit shows, movies, additional live sports and news — anytime, anywhere. Just use code JANUARY.
With this freebie, you'll be able to watch the first episodes of the new Picard show coming out this week!
CBS typically only offers a single week for free to new customers, so a free month gives you plenty of time to binge watch your favorite CBS shows! Stream your all-time favorites, like NCIS, Big Brother, Young Sheldon, and Madam Secretary, either live or on-demand 24/7 with over 10,000 episodes in their archives. Plus you have access to Star Trek: Discovery (which is surprisingly good in certain parts!) and other streaming-only shows.
When you join, use code JANUARY before 1/27, and you'll get a free month of CBS All Access. If for any reason you don't want to keep your subscription after the first month, simply cancel it from the My Account page and you won't be charged after 30 days.0
For a limited time, get a free 5×7 custom photo greeting card at CVS with promo code SWEETHEART. Like usual, you'll bypass any shipping fee by selecting in-store pickup. Think it'd be weird if I made myself a card for my upcoming birthday? I wonder what I'll say to future Goob!
I believe this freebie works best on computers, not mobile devices.0
As usual, I've put together a list of free Kindle eBooks. Many of these are available to everybody! For the longest time, I thought they were only for Amazon Prime members, however I discovered anybody can read these free eBooks with any number of free Kindle apps. Be it on your phone, computer, or tablet, you can download a Kindle app and get these books for free!
They're split into different categories and were all free as of this morning, though please make sure they're still free when you go to redeem them since sometimes these promos only last for a few hours / days.
Hopefully, you can find something fun to read. 📚 😃 And as usual, please check the price before you download. These free books are often time-based and will go up in price after a certain amount of time, so before you download, make sure the price is $0.00!58
I've always said we need more rewards for eating cereal. There are so many other things we could be chowing down on; cookies, doughnuts, raw sugar cane. Yet here we are, eating cereal, and maybe getting a decoder ring if we're lucky.
Well, not today! Today we enter code ENDOFYEARSUMMARY to receive 100 free Kellogg's Family Rewards points and live like kings! On second thought, I'd rather have another decoder ring.
In addition to the free points, entering this code also resets Kellogg's clock to losing your points!
I think this code expires on…okay, I don't really know.29
This past summer, I wrote about earning money by scanning your receipt with ReceiptPal. This past week, as I cashed out an Amazon gift card with them, I started wondering what other apps will pay you for snapping quick photos of your receipts. Turns out there are a ton and my newest favorite app is Fetch!
If you've been using ReceiptPal, then Fetch will seem just like home. Scan your receipt with your smartphone, earn points, then spend those points on gift cards. You're literally getting paid for everyday shopping you're doing already!
One thing you'll quickly notice is how much more info there is with Fetch! Not only do they scan your receipt, but it'll actually break down what you bought into categories and give you a nice summary.
On top of that, Fetch gives bonus points if you buy certain products. These items rotate each week and you don't have to buy them in order to scan your receipt and earn rewards. However, if you happen to buy any of them, you'll get a few hundred or even thousand bonus points.
My absolute favorite feature is you have 14 days to scan your receipts in Fetch. ReceiptPal forces you to scan receipts within 5 days, which left me forgetting to scan tons of receipts. Now, I let them pile up on my shelf. Then I scan them each weekend and toss them away.
I find I'm earning points, and therefore gift card rewards, much faster with Fetch. Not only are their rewards easier to obtain by having lower thresholds, but even the time I spend in the app itself is small. The camera function couldn't be faster to snap a picture and move on with the rest of my day.
One of my small gripes is that Fetch doesn't work with some retail receipts, like clothing stores. I kept forgetting about this and trying to scan retail receipts before my pea-brain finally started remembering.
Common Fetch Questions
- Is there a limit to how many receipts I can submit? – You can submit up to 14 receipts per week.
- Can I use coupons or other receipt rewards apps and still earn Fetch rewards points? – You bet! Fetch can be used with coupons and other apps, so you can save money and stack your rewards earnings on top. In fact, there's no reason not to use multiple receipt reward apps!
- How long do I have to submit a receipt? – My favorite Fetch feature is you have a full two weeks (14 days) after the purchase date to submit your receipts.
- Where does Fetch work and what stores participate? – Fetch works with most major grocery, convenience, liquor, drug, club, and big box stores. A full list of participating sites can be found on their website.
Have any Hiffers used Fetch before? What do you think about it so far?4
I was surprised to learn Amazon quietly launched a pilot program towards offering freebies! Their initial foray into the freebie world is technically called their Product Sampling program, but differs slightly than how we're used to getting samples.
Unlike traditional freebies, where you request a sample and receive it weeks later, Amazon is using a secret sauce to randomly send out freebies. Some users reported receiving free samples related to previous purchases, while others hinted all they did was have a lot of similar products sitting in their cart!
Amazon sent me a random coffee sample! Is it because I have like 15 diff types of coffee in my cart 😂😂😂 pic.twitter.com/LAXOdmpYMa

Initial freebies have been reported from all the usual players – Folgers, Maybelline, Purina, and KIND.
In the long run, this will help speed up the death of freebie sites like HIF. Whereas the Golden Freebies Years (2008-2013) had 5+ samples and freebies every day, now we're down to much, much less. One of the large reasons why is because companies began demanding more analytics, data, and a higher ROI for their freebies. With Amazon, they get all three at a fraction of the cost.
But in the short run, hey, more freebies!
How to Get Amazon Freebies
One great feature of Amazon freebies are they're open to everyone – not just Prime members!
All you have to do is make sure you have a default address selected under Your Account > Your Addresses. Then make sure you have the correct sampling option selected.
So have any Hiffers randomly received any freebies from Amazon yet? If so, what did ya get?!6
