Review - Franklin Goose / Way Basics


About a month ago FranklinGoose.com ran a promotion; for every review get $5 in store credit. I took advantage, given i had bought from them before (I bought Way Basics modular tables) I ended up with $110 in store credit. So about a week ago i decided to purchase a Way Basics 3 Shelf Storage Bookcase priced at $69.99. They have Flat Rate shipping at $5. Unfortunately my item was over the 25lbs limit so i got charged just under $30 for shipping (still within my $110 store credit).

So to tally this up, i got it for FREE.

So i just received it yesterday and am amazed at how sturdy it actually is. The cool thing about this bookcase is that it doesn't require any tools to set it up. What it has is a strong adhesive that is revealed when you peal it off. Its fun to set up. The best part about Way Basics furniture is that its Eco-Friendly. It is made of 99% post consumer recycled paper. Even their packaging is recyclable.

Home Depot - Buy 1 tree, get 1 free.

Well, i went to the Home Depot to use my Buy 1 get 1 free coupon before it expired. Now, let me tell you, this was a GREAT coupon because we just moved into a new house just 5 months ago that needs a lot of landscaping. I got two of these (one sent to me, another to my mommy). Initially i wanted to buy some well grown trees i saw, very green, not sure what kind but looked like nice windbreaks. They were about $35.00 each.

As the cashier rang up my trees and coupon, the machine beeped and she said it wasn't valid on those trees. I'm guessing the price was too high, i thought it was a great shame. I really wanted them. So i went back, got a healthy looking apple tree (with about 10 apples the size of walnuts growing on them already) and a nice cherry tree. With my mommy's coupon we got an avocado and plum tree. 

They were all healthy looking, ranging from 4-5ft tall. Overall, we spent a little under $45 for 4 trees. What a bargain! They even have a 1 year guarantee on their trees.

These coupons came from signing up for the Home Depot Garden Club Newsletter I signed up about 3 months ago and have gotten coupons emailed twice and a coupon booklet sent to my house.

About Me

Who Am I?
My name is Ai Mei, I'm a 23 year old Latina-mixed Blogger residing in the Los Angeles area. My furry babies include two Siberian Husky boys and a Papillon-mix girl. I am a College Student and created this blog, Student-Saving-Bucks.com , to share my money-saving deals and finds to other couponers. The Deal Bloggers World is overtaken by Mommy Bloggers and thought one geared to a slightly different audience would be a good thing. I post my shopping trips and great deals to help other college students see that couponing is a GREAT way to manage your money while being in school, especially if you're putting yourself through it. Using coupons is no longer just for our grandparents, that stereotype has been kicked out the door by myself and many others. The average couponer has a household income of over $50,000 and is college educated. 

I am a coupon-clipper! I go to school and currently major in Anthropology. I love life, Star Trek, video games, gadgets and music. My personal likes include tats and (my) piercings (I'm sure all college students would agree, maybe). I periodically write about my everyday life. I am bi-cultural and enjoy the benefits, including my culture, heritage and other wonderful things that come along with it. I identify more-so as a Latina and respect the Latina blog world that has been steadily gaining exposure.
About Student Saving Bucks
Student-Saving-Bucks was created and founded in April 2010 as a .blogspot We later upgraded to www.Student-Saving-Bucks.com in late June 2011. I actively contribute to this blog to help others earn money and find deals. I also do  reviews and giveaways on anything from tech-gadgets and electronics to make-up, food, etc. Our slogan here at Student-Saving-Bucks is "...because students like to save too! "

I review and giveaway products on my blog to help expose myself and my readers to new worthwhile products. I am not a professional writer or reviewer but am a consumer and have a very strong opinion on the products and brands that I use. I often recommend products to friends and family who then decide to try it out for themselves. Word of mouth to me is one of the best forms of exposure for brands. I enjoy reviewing electronics such as video games, cell phones and gadgets. Technology is our future and we need to get accustomed to it so I enjoy having the opportunity to review these kinds of products for my readers.

This blog is not strictly college-related. Feel free to leave comments, email me for reviews/giveaways, contact me to exchange blog buttons, guest posts, questions, comments, suggestions, or anything whatsoever.
