Off Topic: Instant Win Games

I haven't shared what I won from an instant win game in quite some time.  Well, today I won a free product coupon for Organic Balance milk protein shake.  This instant win game will be going on for the rest of the month.  By the way, I also got lucky on the Coca Cola Freestyle instant win game and won a free digital song code the first time I tried.  This instant win game will be going on until the end of next month.

Have you won anything recently?  You can't win if you don't play!

I just created a page of all the sweepstakes/instant win games I play each day. If you would like to try your luck at these you can find the page here or at the top of my blog on the "Instant Win Games" tab.

NOTE: This list is not all of the instant win games out there. It is just a list of the ones I am currently playing. I don't win much but I still enjoy playing them for a chance to win something big.

This isn't a free offer which is why I titled it as off topic. However, it is something I signed up for. The sites I check on a regular basis sometimes post codes for the Gift to Grow program.
"Membership is FREE, plus you’ll be enrolled in our Gifts to Grow Rewards program. Earn points towards educational toys, books, and more with each package of Pampers diapers, pants, and wipes you buy."

Sadly this reward is not available to request anymore.  However, I hope they offer it again.
On June 17th, the Procter and Gamble Sample Baskets arrived that I requested on May 31st.  I was very excited to receive this to see if this reward was worth the 400 points that it is needed to request it.  I will say I am happy with my reward.  Below in pink is what is stated that you'll receive in this basket.  In green is the extra info that I added after I received it.    They were also very kind and added an extra of both the Head & Shoulders samples and three more of the Dawn samples.  I thought that was very nice of them to do.  Each basket is worth 400 points and since I requested five of them I spent a total of 2,000 points.  That is almost all I have collected since I had joined.   

- Always Radiant Incredibly Thin Liners - Doesn't state Radiant Incredibly Thin but it does look to be of that collection.  Mine actually stated Always Xtra Protection with Avec Odor-Lock Daily Liners.  This was a ten count package which I thought was very nice since I was expecting a sample size of just one or two.
- Puffs Ultra Strong & Soft - This is a ten count package (2-ply 8.0 in X 8.0 in).
- Olay 4-in-1 Daily Facial Cloths - The package says 2-in-1 instead of the 4.  It's one cloth (4.1 in X 7.8 in) for combination/oily skin.
- Olay Regenerist - This is a sample of the Wrinkle Revolution Complex (0.23 fl oz).
- Downy UNSTOPABLES - This is the in-wash Scent Booster in Fresh.  It's good for one load.
- Secret Light & Fresh Clinical - This is the Advanced Strength Solid in that scent (0.5 oz).
- Dawn Power Clean - This Dishwashing LIquid came in the Refreshing Rain Scent.  It does not state the sample size but it's probably about 0.33 fl oz based on it's size.
- Head and Shoulders Hair Endurance - This is the 2-in-1 dandruff shampoo + conditioner for men (0.33 fl oz). 
- Head and Shoulders Active Sport - This is the 2-in-1 dandruff shampoo + conditioner for men (0.33 fl oz).

Points: Disney Movie Rewards

If you are on Facebook you can do the Disney Challenge to win a code worth 5 points.   There will normally be a new game on the first and third Monday of each month.  If you are having a hard time seeing where you need to click look on the left side of the page and click where it says "Play Now" in the orange rectangle similar to the picture below.  I had a hard time finding this and had to ask before I realized what I was looking for.   By the way, if you do really terrible (like I do on occasion), just try again.  Also the points are automatically added to your account so you don't need to click on anything after you complete the challenge.

You can earn points by taking their surveys that they post from time to time.  They currently have two of them worth ten points each.

Check your email for one from Disney Movie Rewards called "Your Members-Only Update".  Then scroll to the bottom of the email and look for the yellow star with a question mark in it.  Click on that star to earn your mystery amount of points.  Mine was worth 6 points.

The bars of soap late in February about a week after I requested them on February 17th.  In fact, I received one of the five bars of soap two days before I received the other four bars which I thought was odd that one would come earlier than the other four.  I was happy with how quickly these arrived.

Not sure what to spend your points on like me?  How about some nice soap?  Right now you can get a free coupon code to redeem at the OneTwine store for a 5 oz bar of Nubian Heritage African Black Bar Soap for only 1,500 points (regularly $4.99).  I think right now this is the best reward to spend your points on.  Just go here and click where it says "Get this Reward".  You can request five at a time (this is what I did).  Once you request your coupon you will receive an email (almost immediately for me) from Recyclebank with your coupon codes.  You will have to redeem one coupon per transaction and the loading was a little slow for me.  The soap has free shipping if you only order the soap.  If you order more items in the store they will charge you $4.95 flat rate shipping.  I'm so happy I was finally able to request something of interest to me with all of my Recyclebank points I have accumulated since the last time I requested something which was a couple years ago.  So hopefully this will be of interest to you too so you can use some of your points as well. 

Recyclebank is place to earn points for learning about recycling and participating in recycling. Each time you do an activity listed on their site you get points. Then you use those points to get rewards.
