Giveaway: Mommy’s Market Presale Passes Worth $10, Sale This Weekend

September 23, 2013 by  
Filed under Freebies, Kids, Shopping

In the Albuquerque Mommy’s Market children’s consignment sale for fall, you can’t consign the kids but you might pick up a bargain!  And we’re giving away FIFTEEN pairs of Mommy’s Market Presale Passes worth $10 each to ABQontheCheap readers, so you can shop early to nab the deals! See how to enter the giveaway below, through Wednesday September 25.

Change of season, change of clothes… but kids are changing all the time. (Did ya notice?)
The Albuquerque Mommy’s Market fall consignment sale on September 28 – 29, 2013 could be just the place to find gently-used kids’ clothing to children’s size 14, and save a few bucks on dressing the offspring both for the new season and their new size. Plus the sale includes maternity wear, children’s furniture, toys, and equipment for moms, kids and babies.

Judging by the guidelines for sellers, Mommy’s Market has pretty high standards and sale items must be in good shape and clean, so it shouldn’t be a game of ‘spot-the-rip’. Just a game of ‘grab the bargain’.  Clothing is organized by gender and size so you can zone in on what you’re looking for.

The Mommy’s Market fall sale is held at Berean Baptist Church, 3800 Eubank Boulevard NE, and admission costs:

  • $1 on Saturday September 28 from 9 am – 5 pm. Assuming you find even one thing to buy you’ll save that dollar many times over.
  • Admission is free on Sunday September 29, from 1 pm – 4 pm, when they clear many remaining items at half price.

There is also a Mommy’s Market presale on Friday September 27 from 7 pm – 9 pm.  No kids are allowed at the presale (although it’s fine to take infants under 9 months in slings) and tickets cost $10 on the door. UNLESS you enter our giveaway and maybe win yourself a pair of presale passes….

How to Win A Pair of Free Mommy’s Market Presale Passes

Thanks to Danielle at Mommy’s Market, we have 15 pairs of free Presale Passes to give away to ABQ on the Cheap readers.

This is for the Albuquerque Mommy’s Market presale on Friday September 27, 2013, from 7 pm to 9 pm at Berean Baptist Church. It’s a chance to shop for the best deals early with free passes that usually cost $10 at the door. Because they like to make this exclusive event a ‘mom’s night out’, they request no kiddos at the presale (infants under 9 months in slings are ok).

Fifteen winners will each receive two Mommy’s Market presale passes, one for themselves and one for a guest. Take your partner, friend, or relative.

Enter the giveaway by 9 pm on Wednesday September 25, 2013.

To enter: Leave a comment below this post saying what you hope to find for your family when shopping at the Mommy’s Market presale. However, any comment will do – about ABQ on the Cheap, about what free/cheap thing you’re doing this weekend, anything to get your name in the hat. Just please keep it decent… we are a family site :-)

  • Submit your comment by 9 pm on Wednesday September 25, 2013
  • Comments need to be approved before they’re published, so if yours doesn’t show up at once, don’t worry. As long as it’s submitted by 9 pm Wednesday , you’re cool.
  • 15 winners will be drawn at random from all qualifying entries. That is, submitted as a comment, not by email.
  • Winners will be informed by email on Thursday September 26, so give us an email you will check that day.
  • One entry per person please, only from U.S. residents aged 18+. Multiple entries by the same person (yes, we can tell!) will be disqualified.
  • All times are local Mountain Time

That’s the rules. Add your comment below this post to enter the Mommy’s Market Presale pass giveaway. (Once only per person, and give me a chance to approve it if you don’t see it published straight away). Good luck!

UPDATE: September 26

The giveaway is now closed. Thanks to everyone who entered! The 15 winners have been selected via a random drawing, and they have all been notified by email.

Comments Off on Mommy’s Market This Weekend & Giveaway Winners

We had 36 entries in our giveaway to win 30 pairs of Presale Passes to the Albuquerque Mommy’s Market fall consignment sale. I felt a bit sad for the six people who would have to be losers. They might get a complex if their name wasn’t drawn out of the hat 😉 But because Danielle at Mommy’s Market is so very generous, she offered to give every single one of those 36 readers who entered a pair of passes. Everyone’s a winner! How cool is that?  

Thanks to Danielle for being such a great sport and supporting families in Albuquerque, and thanks to everyone who entered and whose comments are showing at our Mommy’s Market Giveaway post. You’ll receive an email from me in the next 24 hours confirming how to collect your passes for you and one guest at the Presale on Friday evening, September 14. Make it a date!

If you didn’t enter, you can still shop at the Albuquerque Mommy’s Market fall consignment sale on September 15 – 16, 2012. The sale offers gently-used kids’ clothing to children’s size 14, maternity wear, children’s furniture, toys, and equipment for moms, kids and babies.

Judging by the guidelines for sellers, Mommy’s Market has pretty high standards and sale items must be in good shape and washed prior to the event, so it shouldn’t be a game of ‘spot-the-rip’. Just a game of ‘grab the bargain’.  Clothing is organized by gender and size so you can zone in on what you’re looking for.

  • Admission is free on Sunday September 16, from 1 pm – 4 pm, when they clear many remaining items at half price.

There is also the presale on Friday September 14 from 7 pm – 9 pm. Because they like to make this exclusive event a ‘mom’s night out’, they request no kiddos at the presale (infants under 6 months in slings are ok) and tickets cost $10 per person on the door.

Step 1: Click on the Albuquerque on the Cheap coupons page.  Look for the secret word/phrase. Hint: It says “Here’s the secret word.” Write it down.

Step 2: That page also has a link to the next secret word, along with how to find it. Find that one and write it down.

Step 3: Go to this Living On The Cheap page and find the secret word. Write it down.

Step 4: Now send an email to lotccontest@gmail.com. Put “Contest Entry” in the Subject line. In the body of your email you must include all three secret words/phrases, as well as your real name and mailing address. Don’t worry, nobody will add you to any mailing lists, we promise. Deadline to enter is 10 pm Eastern Time (that’s 8 pm Mountain Time) on Thursday, June 28, 2012.

Five winners will be randomly drawn and contacted by email from the Living On The Cheap crew. If they don’t hear from you within 72 hours, they’ll move on to the alternate winner.

Comments Off on New Living on the Cheap & Giveaway

I know you love all the great Albuquerque deals and free and cheap events you find here at ABQ on the Cheap. But if you’re traveling and looking for national deals, or general tips to save time and money, check out the new Living on the Cheap.

It’s a new national consumer news website and I’m on the team there too, with a bunch of other journalists, frugalistas and consumer advocates offering advice on shopping, personal finance, entertainment, travel, couponing, and more.

The site officially launches on May 15, although it’s already been featured by MSN Money :-)

LivingOnTheCheap.com will run a launch giveaway from May 15 to May 17 – so make sure you go and enter and tell them you’re an Albuquerque on the Cheap reader in your comments. Not that I can pull any strings on who wins the giveaway, but let’s pull out the stops and show ’em there’s life in the Duke City. Fingers crossed that you win!

Meanwhile, here are some of my favorite posts at Living on the Cheap so far:

Small Business Saturday Free $25 Amex Gift Card

November 1, 2011 by  
Filed under Shopping

Comments Off on Small Business Saturday Free $25 Amex Gift Card

FedEx is giving away $25 Amex gift cards for Small Business Saturday, but you have to register fast at Facebook.  ***UPDATE: All the gift cards are now gone! The offer is over, but Amex card holders can still get a $25 credit – see below.***

Small Business Saturday is on Saturday November 26, 2011, aimed at encouraging consumers to support local businesses on the Saturday after Thanksgiving. We like that!

And starting today, November 1, at 11 am Mountain Time (1 pm Eastern time) FedEx is holding a
giveaway of Shop-Small American Express $25 gift cards in a Facebook promotion. You have to register at Facebook on the FedEx page once the promotion starts at 11 am today to get the free gift card. They have 30,000 to give away, so it’s first-come, first-served, till all the gift cards are claimed.

*** UPDATE 12:30 pm: All the gift cards are now claimed! The offer is over.***

*** UPDATE 12 noon: There’s been quite a hoo-ha going on at the FedEx Facebook page, as they were late posting the registration form for the giveaway.  (Look for the blue star at left with “$25 Amex Gift Card”.)

I did finally get my free $25 gift card, although I had to refresh the page many times to see the form, and then submit repeatedly till it went through.  FYI: You need to use a Facebook app to get the deal, and the free offer is available through November 7, 9:59 pm Mountain Time, or while supplies last. You do NOT need to be an Amex card holder to apply for the free gift card offer, despite comments at the Facebook page. But Amex holders may apply for a separate deal (see below.) ***

The cards will be sent by mail to the first 30,000 people who register, in time to shop on November 26, Small Business Saturday, although my understanding is that the cards don’t expire, so you don’t HAVE to use the card on November 26. The giveaway of Shop-Small American Express $25 gift cards is limited to one card per Facebook ID.

In a separate deal, American Express card holders can register your Amex card for Small Business Saturday and when you spend $25 or more at participating small businesses using that card, you’ll get a $25 credit on your Amex statement.

If you’re one of our readers who runs a small business, then you might also be interested to know small businesses with a Facebook page can apply for $100 in free Facebook advertising , sponsored by American Express. There are terms and conditions to read before applying.

And if you’re an Albuquerque business taking part in Small Business Saturday on November 26, tell us about it. In any event, Small Business Saturday is a great idea to bear in mind if you’re heading out to shop on the Saturday after Thanksgiving. Hold some of your dollars back on Black Friday perhaps…

Free Purina Pet Products

Filed under Freebies, Shopping

Comments Off on Free Purina Pet Products

The Purina Pet Products giveaway runs through September 24, 2011, but you have to be quick on the button.

Purina is giving away coupons for free pet products until September 24, and each day they’re offering a free product coupon for dogs and a free product coupon for cats. These include free cat and dog food, chews, and cat litter.

But you have to be quick to claim your freebie! The coupons are available each day at 9 am Mountain Time (11 am Eastern Time). Once the quantity for that day has been snatched up, the only thing to do is wait for the next day’s offer.

You can see the full list of free pet products on offer each day, to make sure you’re ready on the button for the ones you want. 

There are 1,000 coupons every day for each of the cat and the dog products, with the exception of September 24, when there will only be 500 coupons for the cat products. (Poor cats, why discriminate against them? Oh, now I see why. The September 24 coupon is for a free Breeze brand from Purina Tidy Cats Litter System, worth $50.)

The Purina pet product giveaway is limited to one dog and one cat coupon per person, per email address, per household, per day. Lots of pers there. Or perhaps we should say: Lots of purrs?

–Tania    Thanks to our cheap chum Sheri at San Diego on the Cheap for the tip.

Giveaway: Nothing Bundt Cakes Free Cake for A Year

August 18, 2011 by  
Filed under Food, Freebies, Shopping

Nothing Bundt CakesNothing Bundt Cakes opens in Albuquerque with free fun & treats, and win a Free Cake for a Year Card in our giveaway…enter through August 22.

The new Nothing Bundt Cakes bakery opens in Albuquerque this week, and I have to say that I can’t look at a bundt cake without smiling. They’re such happy-looking cakes, with their pretty decorations. Then again, any cake puts me in a good mood, especially if I’m the one who’s eating it.

Nothing Bundt Cakes bakes all kinds of bundt cakes, from Bundlet single serving cakes, to lets-have-a-party tiered bundts to feed up to 26 people.  There’s a host of yummy flavors to choose from, and decorations for a wide variety of occasions from birthdays to weddings, and even a “get well soon” cake. (I suspect that would have the desired effect.)

Although Nothing Bundt Cakes has locations in other states, the new Albuquerque franchise is owned by locals Michael and Rima, and they’re baking fresh cakes daily.

The Grand Opening celebrations are on Saturday August 20, 2011, at Nothing Bundt Cakes,  5901-X Wyoming Boulevard NE in North Towne Plaza.

  • 10 am: First 50 customers to make a purchase receive a free single serving bundlet cake every month for a year
  • 12 noon – 3 pm: a Family Fun event at the bakery includes free balloon art and face painting for kids, plus free treats

Animal Humane of Albuquerque will be on hand to talk about the work they do, and to take any donations. Also note that if you go into Nothing Bundt Cakes on Friday August 19 from 9 am – 6 pm, it’s a fundraiser day with 20% of proceeds going to Animal Humane of Albuquerque.

Giveaway: Win a Nothing Bundt Cakes Free Cake for a Year Card!

One ABQ on the Cheap reader will win a Free Cake for a Year card, which gets you one free single serving Bundlet cake every month for 12 months, from the Albuquerque Nothing Bundt Cakes store.

Enter the giveaway by midnight on Monday August 22, 2011

To enter: Leave a comment below this post telling us about a sweet deal or freebie you’ve enjoyed. But any comment will do – about ABQ on the Cheap, about cake, anything to get your name in the hat.  Please just keep it decent… we are a family site :-)

  • Submit your comment by midnight, Monday August 22, 2011
  • Comments need to be approved before they’re published, so if yours doesn’t show up at once, don’t worry. As long as it’s submitted by midnight Monday, you’re cool.
  • One winner will be drawn at random from all qualifying entries – ie submitted as a comment, not by email.
  • One entry per person please, only from U.S. residents aged 18+. Multiple entries by the same person (yes, we can tell!) will be disqualified.
  • All times are local Mountain Time

That’s the rules. Enter your comment below this post and good luck!

Note : The Free Cake for a Year card is only valid at the Albuquerque Nothing Bundt Cakes, 5901-X Wyoming Boulevard NE in North Towne Plaza. So if you’re one of our out-of-state readers, this giveaway probably isn’t for you. (‘Cos if you rely on me to collect your cakes and ship them to you, you’re gonna receive crumbs!)

UPDATE: Thanks everyone for salivating over the bundt cakes – and for the kind words about ABQ on the Cheap too. I wish everyone could win! The giveaway winner drawn at random is Laura Raymond. Congrats to Laura! We’ll all be her new best friend…

Crazy Bones Toy Giveaway

April 4, 2011 by  
Filed under Freebies, Kids, Shopping

Comments Off on Crazy Bones Toy Giveaway

I’m not entirely sure if Crazy Bones is the Next Big Thing or the Last Big Thing, or just a retro Big Thing that’s coming back. Or maybe a bit of all…

Either way, get a free Crazy Bones toy at Walgreens stores on Saturday April 9, 2011, starting at 9 am. They’ve apparently got one million Gogo’s Crazy Bones to give away across the country, with no purchase needed. I reckon (because I’m super-smart like that)  it would be a good idea to arrive early to pick up your freebie, before supplies run out. 

The Crazy Bones toy giveaway is running at all Walgreens locations, while stocks last, according to the Walgreens announcement on Facebook. And according to the Gogo’s Crazy Bones website, 5,000 of the million free giveaways will be a limited edition, never previously released run of Miro-K, complete with a certificate of authenticity. 

Watch out for the plastic-grabbing frenzy!
