I’ve subscribed to the promotional emails of 500 companies and brands so that you don’t have to. I sift through 1,000 deal-touting emails every week. Most are worthless, but a handful offer valuable coupons, promo codes, sales, and freebies – which I collect and organize for you here.
Arts and crafts
- Hobby Lobby: 40 percent off one full-price item in stores (print first) and online (use code 1042) [2/4]. Note that the fine print says this coupon can be used once a day.
