FREE Online Chore Chart that Teaches Kids About Money

Two years ago, I shared about MyJobChart.com, an awesome way to teach your kids about money.  I loved almost everything the site and it worked great for us for a while, but eventually the kids got annoyed with having to wait to get on the computer to track their progress.  I asked MyJobChart if they’d ever thought about developing an app and they said that one was already in the works!

I’m thrilled to tell you that the app is here, it’s FREE, and it makes MyJobChart even better than before!

If you’re looking for a way to teach your kids about handling money, about the correlation between work and pay, and to instill in them a heart for giving, I can’t say enough great things about MyJobChart.com. And best of all…it’s FREE!

Free Month of Lego Fun with Pleygo

Disclosure: As a US Family Guide Blogger, I received a 3 month Pleygo subscription in exchange for sharing this awesome offer with you! Talk about a win-win! I get to share something cool with you and we both get something FREE!

Pleygo is Netflix for Legos | Lego Subscription Service

We LOVE Legos at our house.  Our twins could spend hours doing “hard work” as they would say building intricate creations.  Even our 15 year old spends hours creating with legos whenever we visit my in-laws.  And while we love Legos, they can get expensive…especially when your kids want each and every cool LEGO set that comes along.  I’m so thrilled to share a cool new company with you that will change the way our family plays with Legos!

Pleygo is a Net-Flix like service for Legos!  Subscribe, rent, play, and exchange sets of LEGOs unlimited times per month.  Shipping is always free both ways and sets are sanitized when returned.  We offer a convenient, quick, and inexpensive solution that relieves clutter and saves space at home while saving money.  Co-Founded by influential parenting blogger and creator of A-List mom Elina Furman, Plegyo is the perfect way to supply your child with endless developmental tools and allow for that much needed quiet time at home!

Three levels of subscription starting at just $15 allow you to find the plan that best suits you.  They offer credit towards your account for sets and mixed bricks that you donate to us, and they provide the shipping label too!  Pleygo is a perfect gift for a family friend, loved one, or birthday party.  Purchase a gift subscription and send it with a special message from you! The best part is Pleygo is constantly expanding their inventory with more sets!

I’m thrilled to share a cool offer with you if you want to give it a try.  You can receive your First Month of Pleygo FREE  when you click here or go directly to www.Pleygo.com to register!

Free Credit Score from Credit Sesame

Did you know that Credit Sesame  allows you to monitor your credit score for free?

Do you know what your credit score is?  While this number isn’t something you typically share with your friends over dinner, it’s important to be aware of it.

My husband and I are in the process of buying a new house and the interest rate for our mortgage was dependent on our credit scores.  If you have a high credit score, you’ll get a low interest rate.  Thankfully, we were able to get a good rate.

With rates going up, it’s important for your score to be as high as possible.   A recent FTC study showed that 20% of Americans have errors on their credit report that are costing them money. Make sure you’re not one of them!

Free Kids Book- Pie-Rits: A Pirate Adventure

Last night I finished reading the first book in The Boxcar Children series to the twins.  When I finished, they wanted another story, but I hadn’t downloaded more books in the series yet.  I headed over to Amazon and downloaded the cutest kids book.  It’s called Pie-Rits: A Pirate Adventure. The kids loved it…although they did say it made them hungry! :)

Right now you can download a FREE Kindle version of Pie-Rits: A Pirate Adventure.  Your kids will thank you!

Tax Day Freebies for 2013

Tax Day is almost here! And while I absolutely love living in the USA, like most Americans I dread tax day every. single. year!  While this is a stressful time of year for some people, there are some perks.  Quite a few business recognize that this time of year is a little rough and to help us soothe our sorrows, they’ve offered some great freebies!  Here are some of the freebies that are available this year!

Arby’s

Freebie: For the third straight year, the fast food chain is offering emotionally- and financially-taxed Americans a delicious freebie on Tax Day. Arby’s is serving up patrons a choice of a free value-sized order of Curly Fries or a small order of Potato Cakes. This is the first year they’re offering Free Potato Cakes, so this is a win for all you potato cake lovers!

Panda Express

Freebie: Last year’s Tax Day fell on April 17, but that doesn’t seem to stop Panda Express from offering its freebie on April 17 of this year, too. On the Wednesday after Tax Day, present this coupon (either printed or via mobile phone) for a free Samurai Surf & Turf entree.  My daughter Amina loves Panda Express, so I have a feeling we’ll be heading that way next Wednesday!

Cinnabon

Freebie: Feeling bitter about filing? (Paltry return? Writing a check to Uncle Sam?) Then head to your nearest Cinnabon and nab two free Cinnabon Bites. It’ll sweeten up your day without emptying your wallet.

HydroMassage

Freebie: Food isn’t the only type of freebie you can get on Tax Day! After poring over every last detail of those tax returns, your mind and body need a rest. Bring this printable coupon to your nearest participating HydroMassage location for a free HydroMassage Experience. If you already have plans on April 15th, (like curling up with a big bowl of ice cream to drown your sorrows) don’t worry — this offer is valid until April 19.  I’ve always wanted to try one of these, so this may be the chance I’ve been waiting for!

Office Depot

Freebie: It’s always helpful to keep copies of your tax return. (You’ll need to cough ‘em up if you plan on applying for a mortgage, for example.) Keep the 2012 tax year on file by going to Office Depot and receiving a free black and white copy of your tax return (up to 25 pages, single-sided). Or if you need to dispose of some sensitive information, Office Depot also provides free document shredding (up to 5 lbs.). Offers expire May 1.

I’ll be updating this list as more freebies pop up! If you know of any that I’ve missed, please shoot me an email or leave a comment!

Thanks DealNews!
