Free items-how to do it!

I want to make sure that everyone out there knows about the Retail Counsel of Canada's Scanner Price Accuracy Voluntary Code
If you are shopping and an item scans at a higher price you get the item free of charge up to a maximum of $10. If the item cost more then $10 you will receive a $10 credit towards that item and charged the lower price. For more info please see the website http://www.retailcouncil.org/advocacy/cp/issues/scanner_acc/print/scanner_accuracy02_eng.asp
I receive a few items free every month by knowing the shelf prices and which stores participate. I believe in Quebec this code is mandatory and voluntary everywhere else.
A small sign is usually posted on the door of the store and by the cash register if they participate in the program. I have had cashiers void the item and try to charge me the lower price until I mention the Scanning Code of Practice to remind them.
My kids are allowed a once in a while treat of a chocolate bar. The last time they got a chocolate bar guess what happened? That's right, it rang up as $1.09 and the shelf sale price was $0.89. Free chocolate, they thought I was pretty cool!

Frugal Chuck E. Cheese fun for the family

The frugal way to visit Chuck E. Cheese.
#1 If you register for the Chuck E. Cheese club they send a one time coupon that's buy 40 tokens get 60 free ($14.99).
#2 We usually make it a surprise and don't tell them we are going, it adds to the excitement!
#3 We usually go after eating, their pizza is good but pretty expensive.
#4 I give each kid a small change purse with 15-20 tokens which last a while because all the games are one token, once the tokens are gone they know they are done playing.
#5 I go on a Monday-Thursday because there are less parties during the week and you won't have to wait so long to play the games.
#6 If you go first thing in the morning, even on a weekend you will get free tickets. The employees test the machines and leave the little coupons they won attached to the machines. The kids love running around and collecting "FREE" coupons.
#7 Check the website as there is usually coupons available.
#8 On the Chuck E. Cheese website be sure to register your kids birthdays. They will receive a coupon for free tokens and I believe no food purchase is required.
#9 Santa brings tokens in the stocking for Christmas!
#10 Keep a few tokens for Mom and Dad and be a kid!
