Day 2 Jamaica trip 2024

I’m writing this post a few weeks after returning to Ottawa but the next few days I wrote while I was in Jamaica. It was a very busy trip but this was a day I got to stay at the resort. Jewel Paradise Cove while my friend figured out our plans for the remainder of the week.  The resort posts the activity schedule on the app, on tv’s in the room, and on a screen in the lobby. I had seen that there was a resort tour at 11:00. I have stayed in many resorts and it usually the company that you booked with doing these tours. I liked that there was no need to wait for a specific tour rep and the hotel was doing this. My friend was out up and early for the garden tour. I slept in and went for breakfast at 10:30. I wanted my friend to come in the hotel tour with me because I have no sense of direction but we later discovered we weren’t getting each others text messages and I thought she was still on the garden tour.  I had received my friends text that she was disappointed there were no plantai

How did I make money getting free stuff



 

Starbucks had a promotion earlier in the week if you bought a drink they would give you a free drink coupon for the weekend. That was the only thing that is technically buy 1 get one free in this haul everything else was free. I told my mom I was going to get my free drink before going to her house so she gave me a shopping list. 

There is a save on foods right next to Starbucks and my purse was full of free coupons. I have been getting a ton of tips on how to get coupons and cash back from Canadian deal finders on Instagram. Even the cashier commented that those were some good coupons. Save on foods is very easy with coupons great place to redeem all the free coupons and I had a great cashier. Save on points are also great in the past I have used them for free flights to Vegas.  

The almond milk coupon came from samplesource. Samplesource sends out boxes with free samples and coupons a couple times a year. They are very hard to get because you have to sign up the day they are released. The samples are so good there is a lot of competition to get them. I got lucky this year. I was holding on to the almond milk coupon because it doesn’t expire for a long time but I can’t resist free chocolate plant milk. 


The gnocchi coupon came from sampler. They have random surveys and samples so you have to keep checking your account and you might get sent random samples. I recently received a box that included the gnocchi coupon and tea bags samples . Also had a free juice coupon but it’s only valid at metro and Sobeys which I don’t have near me. My friend who is in a different province will get that. 

Now the best deal of all. I used a referral to download the Peekage app and got 1000 coins. Then I used 300 coins to get a coupon for free just egg folded. I uploaded the receipt to checkout 51 and got $1.50 cash back. You can use this link to get Peekage app. It looks like it had some fun things to do on it as well.
