Martin's Limited Time Originals: Bacon/Maple Products Review Plus $25 Gift Card Giveaway! ENDS Feb 10th!


I LOVE Bacon (who doesn't)? I could eat it all day and at Breakfast buffets, I make sure to load my plate with bacon.
Martin's has released several Bacon/Maple products that are only available for a limited time. From movie, night to game day, Bacon and Maple Items are the perfect comfort foods to get you through the winter months! More than 50 products in both the fresh and non-perishable departments are available!
Look for these displays at your  local Martin’s.

Martin’s sent me some of the Maple/Bacon products to try out. I went to my friend’s house over the weekend so I had them taste the products!

Bacon Seasoning Salt-I liked this. I meal prep my dinners for the week (Chicken, Brown Rice and Veggies). I seasoned my chicken with salt/pepper and the Bacon Seasoning Salt. It gave my chicken a nice smoky taste and one of my co-workers thought that I had made fried chicken!

Simply Enjoy Maple Bacon Gelato with Sea Salt Caramel Ripple and Bacon Bits-I was skeptical trying this out. I have had Maple Bacon Donuts at Sugar Shack (which I LOVE) but Maple Bacon Ice Cream? The first bite of the gelato was intense! I could taste and smell the smoky flavor. My friend liked it but I wouldn’t buy it again.

Giant Brown Sugar Cinnamon Bacon! on a Stick-This was really good. I love the sweet and salty taste. There was 9 sticks and my friend had 6 of them and I ate the other 3!

Maple Belgian Waffles-These were good-I love waffles with lots of butter and Maple Syrup! I would buy again.

Simply Enjoy Bacon Hummus-I couldn’t really taste the bacon but it had that smoky flavor like the gelato.

Martin’s has graciously provided a $25 Martin’s gift card to giveaway to you guys so you can try out their Maple/Bacon Products! They are only available for a limited time!

This giveaway will end on February 10th! 

Martin's provided me with products to try in exchange for an honest review. All opinions expressed in this post are my own.

Money Saving Apps to Download: Ibotta

Is one of your Resolutions for 2016 is to save more money? Make sure to download the Ibotta app to your phone! 

This is one of my favorites apps to use to earn cash back on grocery purchases! Ibotta Launched December 2012 and I have earned $112 since using it!

Ibotta is pretty simple to use! When you pull up the app on your phone, you can search for offers for Grocery Stores, Retail, Movie Theater, Pet Stores and More!

You will need to unlock offers to redeem them (Simple to do-just answer a simple survey or check out a new recipe). When you buy the item-you will need to verify your purchase by scanning the product barcode and taking a picture of your receipt to submit through the app. It is very simple and Ibotta will guide you through the step-by-step process. It takes less than 24 hours for Ibotta to process your receipt and one it goes through, you offer will be credited to your account! I think of Ibotta as a rebate.

When you reach $20 in your Ibotta account, you have the options to:
  • Have the money deposited back to your Paypal Account (and you can have it transferred to your bank account)
  • Receive a Gift Card to places like Best Buy, Amazon, Express etc (minimum $25)
My sister is a Ibotta fanatic. She doesn't really use paper coupons because she loses them or forget about them but she has earned a ton of cash back using the Ibotta app. She needed new work pants recently so she saved up her Ibotta deposits until she has enough to redeem for an Express gift card. When she had enough, she cashed in and bought a pair of pants!

Ibotta can be combined with other apps and coupons!
If you have other apps on your phone-you can redeem for those offers as well since they are all separate apps! So if one app is offering cash back for Bananas and Ibotta is also offering a cash back deal for bananas, you can redeem for both offer!

Score Free or cheap items with the Ibotta App!
Kroger's Free Friday Offer on January 1st was a Free loaf of Bread (No Longer Available). There was also an Ibotta offer for $0.50 cash back when you buy any brand of bread so I was able to score a FREE loaf of bread and mad $0.50 off of it!

Earn Extra cash with the app!
Refer your friends to Ibotta and earn cash! Have your friends/family join Ibotta using your referral link and when they sign up and redeem an offer, they will earn $10 and you will earn $5! It's a win-win for you both!  Limited time that will be offering this promotion!

Join Ibotta today!

Class Action Settlement: Stevia in the Raw

Image result for stevia in the raw
Did you previously purchase Stevia in the Raw Products?? If so you may be eligible to receive compensation due to a class action settlement. 

Stevia class action settlement Class Members include all U.S. residents who purchased Stevia In The Raw product for personal use between Oct. 9, 2009, and July 1, 2014. The Stevia In the Raw package must have contained the terms “natural,” “all natural” or “100% natural.”
The lawsuit alleges that the defendant profited enormously by claiming that their product was 100% natural when in fact it contained dextrose and maltodextrin a highly processed byproduct of GMO corn, the plaintiffs allege that they unnecessarily paid additional money for a product that was not in fact “all natural”.
The defendant denies the allegations but has agreed to settle to avoid the uncertainty and expenses associated to a long trial.
No proof of purchase is required.
You have until June 6, 2016
Check out these other class action settlements if you haven't filed one already:
Tom's of Maine (5/7/16)

FYI: It may take months even years to receive compensation from these settlement companies.
