Eagle-eyed Hiffers (holy crap, how did you get an EAGLE'S EYE?!) know that my current offspring count sits equal to the number of home runs I've hit for the Seattle Mariners this season. That said, growing up with tons of siblings, I have an inkling for what it's like with bored, moping children around the house. For you see, I myself get bored. A lot. And if your kids are anything like me, it must be insufferable to be around them when they have nothing to do. Plus it's hot outside. we need some cheap, air-conditioned entertainment!
As such, here's a huge list of all the free & cheap kids summer movie events! Almost every theater chain has a dedicated page advertising their summer deals, plus a helpful list of participating locations. So be sure to make sure your local spot is holding a deal before heading out.
I've included both nationwide and smaller, regional chains so as many Hiffers can take advantage of these deals as possible. I'm sure there are more, so please leave a comment if you find any I missed.

In what I'm guessing is an “empty out our warehouse stock!” move, Fast.co is selling branded sweatshirts for only $1 shipped. This sale ends tonight at 11:59 PM ET on Sunday, August 8, 2021.
It took me a while to get the order to go through, but here are the steps that worked for me.
Add 1 sweatshirt to your bag and click “view cart”
Enter coupon code ParkerGoesFast
On the same page, enter your shipping info! The form finally worked for me once I entered all my shipping info on this cart page.
Now click “fast checkout” and enter your billing info for the $1 charge. If you want to avoid being charged more than $1, you can always generate a a free Privacy.com credit card number!
You'll get a confirmation message and email once this page submits!
The popup window is where I kept getting errors for about 5 minutes. I had to close the window and try again a few times before it submitted, so don't feel discouraged if you encounter the same bug.
I've confirmed it's a legit offer and fast's account is retweeting all the thank you messages. Apparently this sale is to celebrate a fifth place finish by part-time NASCAR truck series driver and NBC Sports pit road Parker Kligerman in the Watkins Glen truck race yesterday. Way to go, Parker and thanks for this deal!
Avoid Surprise Charges with a Free CC Number Generator!
If you're worried about your credit card being charged for more than $1, you should definitely make a free Privacy.com account! That'll let you create 12 free virtual credit card numbers with spending limits each month! You can then use these numbers when checking out online, which protects your real credit card numbers in case of any future database hacks or leaks.
It's important you also set a spending limit on each generated card! This is what protects you from future charges. So for this offer, I made a new card with only a $2 spending limit on it so they can't make a huge surprise charge later 🙂 Make sure to set a very small spending limit to avoid any future charges!! I can't stress that enough, otherwise you're missing out on a key protection feature.
If the $60 yearly membership fee has kept you from joining Costco, you might be interested in this deal. Now through August 22, new members will get a free $40 Costco gift card after joining! This effectively discounts your first year by 66%.
While this is only valid for new members, the fine print also clarifies “to qualify as a new member, an existing Costco membership must be expired at least 18 months or more.” So even if you let your old Costco membership lapse, you'll still qualify as long as it 1.5 years ago.
On top of the membership discount, you can save an extra $40 off any order of $250+ on Costco.com. I believe both $40 offers are stackable, so you'd be able to save $80 on any item over $250.
The $40 gift card will be mailed 4 to 6 weeks after sign-up. The $40 off any order of $250+ on Costco.com coupon will be emailed to the email address on file.
These coupons don't expire until December 31, 2022, so you have a full year to redeem as many coupons as possible. It only took my sister a few weeks to make her money back with last year's coupon book.
One of the perks of these books is that all books come with a digital subscription! That means in addition to your hard copy with physical coupons, you also get access to over 75,000 digital coupons. They're accessed via Entertainment.com's website or mobile app and are perfect for traveling away from home, where space might be limited.
I first posted about the Entertainment Coupon Books back in 2009, but it's been a while since I've refreshed folks on their savings. Each year, they offer location-specific coupon books that come packed with coupons for local restaurants, entertainment spots, and retailers.
Remember, this great offer expires on 6/14/21. If you're a Hiffers who already bought the 2022 coupon book, what do you think of it so far? Any coupons you've especially loved this time around?
Walmart has a seasonal sampler beauty box that changes each quarter. For only $5 shipped, you get a Walmart beauty box with samples based on the season and your answers to a few basic questions. They all center around your demographics and personal preferences, so it should only take a minute or two to complete.
I'm kinda kidding, not kidding, but those purple, orange, and white teardrop looking things are just part of the graphic design, right? They're not some weird teardrop adhesives people stick to their faces for beauty reasons that I'm only just now discovering, correct? … Okay, cool, yeah, that's what I thought too.
Now, has anybody ordered one of these Walmart beauty boxes before? What'd you think? How do they compare to Target's beauty boxes? Let us know in the comments!
A lot of Hiffers reported problems with using these promo codes. I looked into it and can confirm that VISITORS should work for new users. This is what I get when I try to use the promo code. Make sure you're not trying to purchase alcohol, as that invalidates the code.
If you're an existing customer and unable to use the codes below, we might be out of luck right now. However, you could always make a new account and purchase groceries with a new credit card … 😉
FRESHCAR – Works for grocery delivery only, not curbside pickup.
DELIVERY – Another grocery delivery code.
New to Walmart's Grocery Pickup? It's a same-day service that allows you to show for groceries at home, then pick them up curbside at your local Walmart! Most locations have 8am-8pm pickup hours and you get to reserve an hour-long window that best fits your schedule.
To take advantage of this deal, simply add $50+ worth of qualifying grocery items to your cart, then go to checkout and pick your nearest Walmart along with a date & time to pickup your groceries. Don't forget to use a promo code either! You'll then get a phone call around 15 minutes prior to your hour-long pickup window letting you know your groceries are ready.
From the eyecare experts at Bausch + Lomb, LUMIFY significantly reduces redness to help eyes look whiter, brighter, and more radiant for up to 8 hours. Plus there’s no bleach, no dyes, and they’re FDA approved. USE AS DIRECTED.
Honestly pHresh Prebiotic Deodorant Sea Mineral – 39 G
Thoughtfully formulated without baking soda! Packed with prebiotics and magnesium for maintaining optimal pH levels and controlling odor up to 24 hours! Fair Trade Certified and Hypoallergenic.
tenoverten Rose Polish Remover Wipes – 1 cloth
Non-acetone nail polish remover wipes make it easy to take off your polish, even on-the-go, and the subtle rosy fragrance leaves hands smelling yummy, too.
My Instant Pot has even replaced my rice cooker. I eat a lot of brown rice, while I find the default rice setting is more for white rice. However, once you discover the best rice ratios and time, you can cook pretty much anything in it! Instant Pot has some additional tips on cooking rice that I found helpful.
At the end of the day, it's almost too easy to throw a bunch of ingredients into an Instant Pot and have a full, delicious meal less than an hour later.
The 2019 Entertainment.com coupon book is on sale for only $5, with free shipping, through July 31, 2019. Get yours today and make your money by using a single coupon in many cases! This is also the cheapest these books will be a full year out.

PayPal members (so basically everybody) can get a free 2 year ShopRunner membership. For those new to the neighborhood, ShopRunner gives you free 2-day shipping at over 100+ participating stores, such as Bloomingdales, NFL.com, Staples, and 1-800-Flowers. An annual membership normally costs $79, so this freebie is valued at $158.
If, for some reason the link above doesn't work, then here's afree 1 year ShopRunner subscription link that has worked for years.
If you're unfamiliar, ShopRunner provides 2-day shipping (similar to Amazon Prime) to over 140+ major stores.
Also, you're welcome for me avoiding the painful “I never run to shop!” joke.
Original ShopRunner Review
We're 40 days away from Christmas. Yep, you read that correctly. I'm going to highlight a few services and websites over the coming weeks that might make your life easier during the holidays (and beyond), but remember that there are tens of thousands of Hiffers out there. Every service isn't going to be best for you, so I'm only focusing on ones that I use or ones that I think most people would find helpful.
You've probably heard of Amazon Prime. For $79, you can get free two-day shipping on pretty much every Amazon purchase. It's awesome. The problem is when you go to buy something on another site, you're back to paying $6 for shipping that takes a week if you're lucky. And we haven't even got to potential return fees!
Enter ShopRunner is a yearly $79 membership site in the mold of Prime. But instead of being available for just one store, it's works on over 150 participating stores (with dozens more on the way) that have banded together to offer free two-day shipping. A membership gets you free shipping from NewEgg, Toys and Baby-R-Us, MLB and NFL.com, American Eagle, PetSmart and tons more. Even better, you get free shipping on any returns as well. Because, let's be honest, we all occasionally make a regrettable 2am drunk purchase.
Aside from the free shipping for yourself, you can also designate up to four fellow household family members to share your account. And if you need to return something, you get free return shipping as well.
Is this for you? I don't know. I have no idea what your online shopping habits are. However, if you and your family shop even a handful of times online at participating stores, you'll make your money back through saved shipping costs rather quickly. In fact, ShopRunner is so confident you'll love them, they're giving people a free 30 day trial with no strings attached. If you like the service, you can keep it past the trial. If not, you are free to cancel it.
So if you do as much online shopping as myself, give ShopRunner a shot and see how awesome they are.
