First I used a coupon to bring home a package of Kellogg's Special K Cracker Chips absolutely free. Maybe I should have scanned the coupon so you would believe me, but I now have another one for Turkey Bacon, so I'll show you that, when I use it.
Later in the week I received samples of both Advil Nighttime and L'Oreal Miracle Blur. Now these are two products that I truly hope work, and more will be purchased if they do. Both of these samples also came with coupons worth $4 off a future purchase.
Finally, I got something I was no longer expecting. I had done a survey for Penguin Books last fall, and was thrilled to be presented with a list of books to choose from, as a reward for completing the survey. I picked a book and waited for it to arrive. I had won a book from them shortly before this and it arrived quite quickly. But this reward book never came. I assumed it was lost, and for some reason I dropped Penguin a line a couple of weeks ago to say that I never got the book I chose. Well, it arrive this week, so I'm very happy about that. I don't know if it was my inquiry that triggered the shipment or if it was just a coincidence that it finally showed up here now. I'll be starting to read it in a day or two, when I'm finished the book I currently have my nose in.
