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 WELCOMETOTHETEAM 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!
As always, I keep a list of active free Kellogg's codes. It's great for both new members and current members who might have missed any.31

Kids will get free candy and a kid-sized pumpkin. Dang, I was hoping for pumpkin-sized candy.0
As I've mentioned before, I'm a huge fan of FMTC's affiliate database directory. I've used it daily for years while working on HIF and it doesn't look like that'll end any time soon because they have a new Chrome browser extension.
This allows FMTC subscribers to swiftly access affiliate links and merchant information without needing to load the database each time, all from within your browser while still on a merchant's website. If you run a website or any sort of business that works with affiliates, I can't recommend it enough.
This upgrade might seem small at first glance, but it completely cuts down on the number of clicks and time it takes to check on a merchant. Even if it only saves you a minute or two each day, that time saved quickly ads up. And I find myself using it way more than just once a day!
Setting up the extension couldn't be easier either.
- Install the browser extension from the Chrome store.
- Log into your FMTC account.
- Click “Browser Extension” from the sidebar.
- Generate your unique API key, then enter it into the extension.
Once you're set up, you can start using the extension on thousands of different merchant websites to check their program status & restrictions, deeplink ability, and even covid-19 temporary affiliate changes.
I find that covid-19 perk to be especially helpful these days. The pandemic has decimated my industry and I spent so much time trying to figure out merchant updates earlier in the year. You should seen the mess of post-it notes I had all over my desk in a futile attempt to track all the changes.
However, with the extension, I can immediately tell if a merchant has nuked their commissions as soon as I land on their website.
We received confirmation that there has been a decrease or zeroing out of commissions.
Notes: 6/24 – Emailed about status of commission rates
Verification Type: Merchant Newsletter
Last Update: 2020-06-24
That info tells me if I'm trying to make money, I should probably head elsewhere for the time being since Best Buy has “zeroed” out their commissions. 😅
Accessing all of this merchant info would have taken, at minimum, three additional clicks and page loads without the extension. Loading the database, searching the database, then loading the merchant page. But with the extension, it's all at my fingertips right from the browser!
Deal bloggers will also love the “Deals” section within each merchant's listing. It contains both a link to FMTC's full deal page for each merchant while also highlighting a few “top deals” that FMTC thinks you might be interested in.
I won't lie, there's one big item I have on my wish list for the extension. While you can create a deeplink within the extension, it doesn't let you create an unbranded affiliate deep link! This is the only time I find myself constantly swapping back to the FMTC database and thus is one of the slight bottlenecks I find with the extension. That said, I still find myself using it all the time. This one missing perk is the only thing holding it back from being absolutely perfect.
Are there any other bloggers out there who use FMTC's merchant directory? Have you tried the extension yet? If so, please let share in the comments how it helps your daily routine!0

4 out of 10 people in America struggle to swallow a pill, according to Phazix … who apparently make free pill swallowing gel samples and not, as I thought, sci-fi death rays to fend off aliens.
The submit button looks like it's grayed out, but it worked as soon as I clicked it. You should get a confirmation message saying “The Phazix Team is on it! We will process your request and ship your samples as soon as possible.”0
You have to confirm your email to get this freebie, so you know the drill. Freebies for our furry friends should arrive in 4-6 weeks.2
Stonyfield Organic is giving away free Make Earth Cool Again hats while supplies last. Gotta love a freebie that's also smart policy!
The offer is set to end on October 11, but I don't think it'll last that long.0
That sound you just heard was the ol' Reliability Train rumbling through town, bringing with it your annual reminder to sign up for this classic freebie!. These two free Breathe Right nasal strips have been around for so long that I think we should induct them into the Freebie Hall of Fame.
Don't get too excited though, it's not as prestigious as it sounds. It's basically a space on my bookcase where I needed some color. It sits right between a broken clock and an old t-ball trophy. I was the only kid not to punch a teammate that year!
I was actually on a team the last time I wore one of these free Breath Right nasal strips. It was back in high school on the football field. You should have seen me, I was a beast! Tirelessly running up and down the field and always hanging around with the tough guys was a recipe for instant popularity. It seemed like everybody knew and was talking about me, which always made me feel great. And the girls! Oh, the girls. They were always pointing at me and laughing – no doubt thinking of a hilarious joke I'd recently told in class.
I probably didn't need to wear full football gear to be the water boy, but people were always throwing good luck charms at me, like empty beer bottles. Sure, they hurt whenever they hit my head, but the more they threw, the faster I ran, and the more hydrated our team was! What great fans, huh?!
I never learn what happens if you wear ten Breathe Right's at once? Does that give you ten times the amount of oxygen you'd normally get? Don't worry, I plan on testing this out in the interest of science / filling a lazy Thursday afternoon.
Free Breathe Right Coupon
Breathe Right also gives away free coupons which you can stack with the free coupons that come alongside the freebie!
