Money Saving Around the Web: Phone Bill Warning, Mailing Lists for Free Stuff and More

Here are some of my favorite reads by other bloggers this week:

  • This post by Carrie over at Money Savings Methods made me run and check my phone bill for phony (pun intended) charges.  Click here to read about how you could be getting scammed via your phone bill.
  • One of my favorite reads every day is the website The Consumerist.  The majority of its post have to do with consumer advocacy which I think is something we all need to practice.  Check it out!

Finally here is a quick round up of deals available right now:

  1. Get a free grocery tote at Dominicks.  Plus get all of your Dominicks’ deals and Jewel deals.
  2. If you bought an Amerigas cylinder using the coupon available on, you may want to read about this $5 Amerigas Rebate.
  3. Thinking of sprucing up your home this Spring?  You could get a free pint of Benjamin Moore Paint.
  4. Red Roof Inn rooms for just one penny?  That sounds very cheap to me!

I hope you are having a wonderful Friday and have an even better weekend!

    In regards to the phony charges – You can contact your state’s utilities regulatory comission ( in Michigan it is Michigan Public Service Comission). They will do an investigation into any disputed charges on your bill that the utility company won’t retract. This goes for electric, gas, phone, cable, etc.

    Don’t know if it would work or not but in my March email from the Home Depot Garden Club, there was also a $3 off an exchange or $4 of a new tank coupon. If it worked, with the manny, Home Depot coupon and the rebate, you could get $10 off an exchange or $11 off a new tank.
