Select Aware Online Savings & Coupon Portal Review


I can't believe I haven't heard about Select Aware until now. offers exclusive deals and discounts for all of your favorite online stores, such as Amazon, eBags, Office Depot, Teleflora, Toys 'R Us, Zales and more.
I never make an purchase without checking for an online coupon first, and Select Aware makes it so easy to find an online code to thousands of online stores.
Coupons are updated every day throughout the day and are continuously checked to make sure they are still valid. 
They have a huge list of stores listed by alphabetical order.  Or you can search by their suggestions like on the picture below, where they show you the Top 10 Most-Clicked coupons etc.


Once you select a store, you get another list with all the available coupons and discounts for that particular store.  I also liked that it listed similar stores as well, in case you didn't find a coupon you liked.
 Once I found the coupon I wanted to use, I clicked on it and it took me directly to the store website with a little pop-up window that gave me all the info about the coupon.


Unfortunately, the first code I wanted to use was not accepted by the store, but the expiration date was 8/31 so I don't think it was Select Aware's fault.  I did really like the fact that I was able to leave a comment on Select Aware right away to let them know the code didn't work.  You are also able to rate the coupon for others.

The nice thing is that there are many codes for each store, so I went back to the list, picked another code, and that one worked right away.  I was able to save $6.40!

  •  Also, make sure to sign up for the coupon newsletter to get the best deals every week. 5 $25 Amazon Gift Cards are Given Away Monthly to their Subscribers!
  • You can also sign up for store alerts to get an e-mail when new coupons for your favorite store are available.
  • Follow them on facebook, twitter and google + for contests, exclusive coupons and savings tips!
Overall, I really enjoyed using Select Aware.  It was a very easy site to navigate, and you can find so much more than just coupon codes.
One of my favorite parts of their site is the blog.  They have great articles and many tips on how to be a better saver.

I can't wait until the Holiday Season to be able to use Select Aware for all my online shopping!

Disclosure: I received a $25 gift code to the store of my choice in order to better review their website.  However, all opinions are 100% my own.

Back to School Treat

School started again for us yesterday, and I wanted to make a little back to school treat for the kids. 

I also wanted to have a little souvenir for myself.  So I got a picture of the kids with their treats.

I read about this idea in a magazine, and decided to give it a try.

I got chocolate bars and "engraved" them with a toothpick and powdered sugar to show each child's grade.



Have you made a Back to School treat?

Purex Fels-Naptha Laundry Bar Review, Sweepstakes & Giveaway

Have you heard of Purex Fels-Naptha Laundry Bar?

Fels-Naptha is one of your Grandma's best kept secret.  It has been around for 120 years, and will help your laundry routine every time.

It's no secret that I have messy kids, and I need all the help I can get when it comes to laundry.

Fel-Naptha is a stain remover, that is easy to use and more effective than spray.  It's great for dirt, grease and rings around the collar.  And no fear, Fels-Naptha is safe on colors.

Of course, I had one of my daughter's shirts that had a big chocolate stain on it to be used as my test shirt.

I rubbed the bar on the stain, waited a couple of minutes, then added it to the laundry.
Here is the result.  The stain has definitely reduced, but it is not gone.  Now it was not a brand new stain so maybe that's part of the problem.


120 Years, 120 Winners Sweepstakes
Enter the sweepstakes here,
  •  One lucky winner will win the $500 grand prize.
  • 119 second place winners will receive a coupon for a free bar of Purex® Fels-Naptha Laundry bar.
That's 120 winners for every year Fels-Naptha has been helping remove America's toughest stains!

GIVEAWAY: Three (3) Kids and Deals readers will win a Coupon to try Fels-Naptha.
