Question What did you get in the mail today?

I'm one of those people who loves getting mail. Today was a big mail day for us. My husband buys and sells coins as a hobby/money maker. He got two coins in the mail today. I send away for freebies and samples as a hobby. Today I got a whetstone blade sharpener with a leather case. I also got some Uberliss shampoo and conditioner packets and Purina One dog food.

I got four magazines (also freebies). US, Sports Illustrated, Rolling Stone and Lowrider. I got a Blockbuster movie and a request for a donation from the March of Dimes with Fall themed address labels and stickers...pumpkins, turkeys, lanterns, etc.

Fortunately, no bills today; most of our biills are paid online anyway. I got a couple of pieces of junk mail. That's about it. Some days we got a lot of mail, while other days, practically nothing.

Congrats. I missed that one. I get nice stuff from Black & Mild, also from Marlboro and Copenhagen. A set of darts, a premium cigar, a whetstone, coasters (made to look like album covers), mugs with our names, silver shakers to name a few. They all give away some excellent freebies.

I've been doing those contests for years. My whetstone hasn't arrived yet, but I received all of those other items you mentioned. I also have flasks, bottle openers, Zippo lighters... lots of good stuff.

My favorite thing that I got from them so far was the poker chip set w/ the wooden turntable.

Nothing for me today, I used to get stuff from Marlboro all the time but my name must not be on their mailing list any longer because it's been over 2 years since I got anything including coupons. Speaking of tobacco promotions, I didn't get this in the mail but I found 10 Diablo bobblehead dolls at a Salvation Army thrift store last Friday. Supposedly they were a promotional item by Cigar World and were given to select dealers of Diablo Tabacos Picantes cigars which were discontinued. They're were several variations and an Ebay seller claims that this one was limited to only 500 produced but I've been unable to verify it and it seems highly unlikely since I found 10 in one place.

I got those too, except the flask. Also, steak sauce and barbeque sauce. I'm waiting for the Marlboro bandana. I don't consider these contests; more giveaways because I just fill out a form and get the item.

Some items I get through them are freebies and others are from games.

I remember they had a trivia contest one time. The ear buds that I just got from Black & Mild came from a matching game.

Smile A good mail day

A Nutrabar dog treat, a freebie for our neighbor's dog, Bitsy. A freebie 2014 calendar. Some coupons for free Chobani yogurt that Jenny sent me, which are very much appreciated. Also, a very nice heart piece from TJL. It's an anniversary gift for my husband. Two magazines, Popular Science and LaCucina Italiana. There's also some useless pieces of mail that don't even deserve an explanation.

I've placed myself on the mailing lists of every car dealer in my area. From time to time they send me flyers for their sales drives, they give away "Golden Dollars", target and Wal-Mart Gift cards (Usually $10, but I received 3 $25 and one $50 card) Once I get my Cash or cards i make my way to Targhee or Uncle Wally's where I purchase a toy, which I'll donate to one of five charities this December.
