Common sense should tell you that the less you print, the more you’ll save. Ink costs money. Paper costs money. But sometimes it’s just not that simple — sometimes the things you’re looking to print have a lot of useless information mixed in that you have no choice but to print out along with what you were looking for. Enter GreenPrint.
GreenPrint is a free-to-use program that allows you to print exactly what you want without any excess waste or filler. On top of that it’ll track exactly how much paper and ink you’ve saved and translate that into a dollar figure so that you can really seethe impact it’s making. Right now the product is only available in Windows format, though they’re hoping to have a Mac version up and running by the end of the year.
Sometimes reducing your eco-footprint can help fatten your wallet too. Isn’t it nice when good deeds pay off?
Coupon for $5 off Will Ferrell movie, ‘Semi-Pro’ DVD from Quiznos if you buy a regular or large sandwich (though they gave me one without buying a large — I just asked them for one and they had no problem giving it to me).
Here at SmartCanucks we’re always looking for coupons and freebies and simple ways to save a few coins — but what if you had to earn your savings?
A lot of jobs out there offer some great employee perks and discounts. If you work somewhere (or know of someone that does) that offers some sweet deals for their employees, let us know right here in the comments! Lots of people are always looking for part time work — maybe we can help them find that job that’ll let them stretch their dollar even further.
I’ll try and get the ball rolling — as I’ve mentioned before, my day job is with Blockbuster Video. As an employee I’m entitled to 10 free rentals a week, new movies a week before they come out, 20% off used product and candy and 10% off new. There are a few small catches (once on the shelves I have to wait 4 weeks to get movies free, 8 for games) and I can’t use my discount towards video game systems – otherwise it’s all kosher. The job made a lot of sense for my pocketbook since these are the items that I spend most of my disposable income on anyways.
with couponing, that is! Check out all the items that I got for FREE today (well, I got the razors and Scrubbing Bubblesâ€™ on Friday but forgot to take a photo of them, so I am including them in this photo). Here is the breakdown:
– 2 Fusion Razors @ $9.99 each = $19.98 – 2/$10.00 coupons (rung in at $9.99 each) = FREE! (saved including coupons = $35.98)
– 2 Scrubbing Bubbles @ $6.99 each = $13.98 – 2/FREE coupons = FREE! (saved = $13.98)
– Dog Food, Cat Food, 12 Cat Food Tins @ $42.36 (I couldnâ€™t get a receipt, but this was the combined total of the products) – FREE coupons for all 14 items = FREE! (saved = $42.36)
– 4 Krispy Kreme Donuts @ ?? each (Iâ€™m gonna assume they are $1 a piece) = $4.00 – 2 samples and 2 FREE coupons = FREE! (total saved = $4.00)
My total saved is $96.32! Can you believe that?! How exciting!
A pretty enticing freebie for MMO-gamers who’ve previously dabbled in either Everquest or Everquest II. Right now Sony is offering to reactivate your account until July 25th free of charge. They’ll also provide the software, complete with all expansions, as a free download.
Amazingly enough there’s no catch. Sony Online Entertainment is just desperate to remind players of their roots as World Of Warcraft has been the MMO-kingpin for a few years now, rendering all other MMO’s non-profitable. If you decide to continue your account past July 25th, regular rates apply. Visit eqlivinglegacy.com for more details.
I’m sure you’ve all heard of CBC dumping the popular and loved â€œDunt da DUNT da dunt” Hockey Night In Canada Theme. Although I’m not huge hockey fan I loved that that theme song and it’s sad to see it go.
Thanks ONmomofthree and someone else suggested it without entering their name.
