Giveaway: WIN Macaroni Grill & Wanchai Ferry Boxed Dinners PLUS $25 Gift Card!

Do you remember your first date? Why not recreate the love this Valentine’s Day with a delicious restaurant style meal right in your home?

MyBlogSpark recently provided me with Macaroni Grill & Wanchai Ferry Boxed Dinners and $25 Gift Card to recreate my first date night right at home. I have to admit that I included our two little men in on this date, as much has changed in the past 11 years. My four-year-old was my helper and had fun helping made Wanchai Ferry’s Orange Chicken. It was very simple with clear directions. The only change we made in the directions was to put the cut chicken and seasoned cornstarch into a bag for my son to shake instead of coating it in a bowl as the directions stated.

The results? My family loved it! It really was like having restaurant style Chinese food right at home. I’m sure we’ll try this again and maybe even venture out into different flavors.

Want to try this at your home? One lucky reader will a Date Night prize pack that includes Macaroni Grill & Wanchai Ferry Boxed Dinners AND a $25 Gift Card. 

Can't wait to try?  Go HERE to print a coupon for $2.25/2 Macaroni Grill or Wanchai Ferry Dinner Boxes.

Check out

hip2save just posted about an awesome deal...

Modnique, similar to some of the other daily deal sites I’ve posted, offers exclusive access to limited time sale events of authentic, hand-picked designer merchandise. Many of the items on Modnique are very high priced, however, once you scroll down to the lower items on each offers sales page, you’ll notice the prices will start to drop! In fact, there are quite a few items starting in price at right around $5.

…AND even sweeter, first time members instantly receive a FREE $5 credit when they sign up through this link. Plus, through 11/30, you can use coupon code star at checkout to get an additional $10 off your purchase!

*Note: The $5 credit you receive CAN be applied towards the $7.95 shipping cost. However, the $10 coupon code cannot be applied towards shipping.

One Modnique sale to note is on Kidorable items. They have Kidorable rain boots on sale starting in price at just $12 + $7.95 for shipping, so after the $10 code and $5 credit– ONLY $4.95 (+ tax) shipped! They also have a few very cute Kidorable hats, mittens and scarves priced at just $5 and umbrellas priced at just $6, so you could snatch up a $6 umbrella and pay ONLY $2.95 + tax (which includes shipping)!

In addition to snagging some great deals on jewelry, apparel, watches, sunglasses and more, you can also earn Modnique credits by referring your friends. You will get $15 in credits for every friend who signs up with Modnique after clicking on your referral link and making a purchase. You will also get $10 in credits for the friends of your friend who become buyers at Modnique. And if their friends become buyers, you will get another $5 for each buyer connected to you by third degree (check out the picture below for all the details)! You can then use the credit rewards to make a purchase at Modnique!

So if I were you, I’d sign up as soon as you can, then email friends and family your referral link immediately. Make sure to highlight the $10 code in your email, then they can score an amazing deal AND earn you some money to spend on Modnique in the process!

So please join me at members only private sales of designer brands.  I just ordered my son ADORABLE Rain Boots for $4.95 shipped!!!!

Back By Popular Demand....

....well, sort of.  I so appreciate all the kind words and encouragement you have all given me.  Your words and encouragement made me realize that I love doing this and need to find a way to fit it in, whether or not I earn any advertising money.  So here's what I'm thinking:
   When I discover an amazing bargain, I'll do my best to post it here and on our Facebook page, but when I'm running short on time, I'll just post it on Facebook.  I'll also post links of sale and coupon match ups for Rite Aid, Walgreens, and Meijer from other bargain/coupon blogs (as always, make sure you check your local ad to ensure that your store is running the same sale) to my facebook page only.  So if you don't want to miss a deal, make sure that you go HERE to like Bargains4Families on Facebook!
