More NEW Target coupons available on the ShopKick App today. Don't know what ShopKick is? ShopKick is an app available for iPhone and Android devices for FREE. You get points for walking into certain stores and scanning items, you can then redeem the points for gift cards or use them to donate to worthy causes :) I love this app, and another wonderful thing is that they post Target mobile coupons via the ShopKick App. The Target coupons on ShopKick are different from the mobile coupons, insert and website Target coupons.

How to redeem? Simply click "Use This" then you will see the barcode which the cashier should scan. You will have 12 hours to use it after tapping "Use This" or else it expires, so I suggest you click "Use This" only when you're already at the store!

Giveaway - Zoobies 3-in-1 Blanket Pets #Travel-Friendly

Product Review of Zoobie Plush Pets Travel Friendly
Being stuck on a plane for a 6+ hour flight at night with kids requires sleep, for them mostly. We usually depart around 11pm or later so after all the craziness that is the airport, they need sleep on the plane. I am a HUGE germaphobe though and will never allow them to cover themselves in airplane blankets or use the pillows provided by the airline, I just don't trust them. Thankfully, I came across Zoobies, a company with a very kid-friendly travel product, and they sent me a little buddy to review.

Zoobies Review Travel Friendly Kid Products
We received the Zoobies Wyatt the Wolf Blanket Pet. He is super adorable, my siblings and I chose him because he remind us of our dogs, which we will be missing when on our 1-month long trip. Two of three of our dogs are Siberian Huskies, and this Zoobies Blanket Pet reminds us of them, as Huskies have a resemblance to wolves. Although named, we promptly changed his name to "wolfie", which fits him much better.

I have to say, this is one well made product. His gorgeous eyes, tail, color combination and other features are beautifully detailed. The fur is extremely soft, so soft you just might find yourself petting him as if he were a very obedient dog. This little guy comes with many perks, the best being he transform into a blanket, plush pet toy and pillow.

Wolfie has a 44" x 34" coral fleece blanket inside, the size is great for my both my siblings on the plane. It is very soft. I also adore the fact that you can unzip and completely undetach the blanket from the rest of the pet. It makes it much more versatile. When done, it is very simple to zip it back, fold it up and stuff it back in. The velcro tabs are very sturdy as well, they keep him nice and plump for plush toy-mode. So convertible, easy to unzip and wash the blanket and just a beautiful detailed 3-in-1 blanket pet. This is a wonderful product for traveling or any other occasion really. We absolutely love it.

Zoobies has a variety of Blanket Pets, from Wyatt the Wolf to Bobo the Baboon. There's one for all animal lovers. Zoobies also has Slumber Pets, Blankie Babies and Storytime Pals, which are special editions of popular children's book characters and include Curious George. A huge thanks to Zoobies for the opportunity to review their great product. They have been generous enough to provide 1 lucky Student-Saving-Bucks reader with a Zoobie Blanket Pet of their own!

Review - @Energizer AP1201 Energi To Go iPhone Charger

Energizer AP1201 Energi To Go iPhone 4 Charger and Skin
Energy. I need a LOT of it. I remember on my last trip to Nicaragua my phone would die so I wouldn't be able to receive or make any calls. This wasn't too much of a problem, since I was with plenty of people with working phones. Now, m phone acts as a backup device for almost everything... including "cell phone services". So if it dies... I'm out of luck. Not anymore! :) Thanks to the great people at Energizer, I received a pretty cool little gadget that will help ensure my phone won't be without power on my trip.

I received the Energizer AP1201 Energy To Go iPhone Charger. This is no ordinary charger, its a charger that doubles as a skin for your iPhone. The case is made of recycled silicone rubber. Most of the back is a harder type of plastic and inside the bottom is where you'll find the 30-pin apple connection where you'll slide your phone into. This skin is meant to protect your phone while being a portable charger as well. The one con I have is that the skin itself attracts a lot of dust and lint. I don't usually have a case on my phone, I have a Tokidoki-theme sticker skin which protects it from scratches but not falls. So, the change is quite dramatic for me. It feels a bit thicker in my hand with the case on, as its a little more bulky around the middle, where the harder plastic is located. The charger is about 1/2" longer than the phone itself, but does not look or feel like a dramatic extension. On the contrary, its shaped to redirect sound to you while watching videos or movies.

Energizer AP1201 Energi To Go iPhone 4 Charger and Skin
I loved the packaging it came in, included inside was the Energizer AP1201 Portable Charger, the USB Charging Cable, a users manual and welcome card. The charger itself is great, very lightweight. Although its a bit bulkier, I have gotten used to it in the past month. It is non-slippery so my phone has not fallen out of my hands since using the AP1201. I do not use it on a daily basis, but have found that carrying it in my bag (fully charged) works out better for me when I won't be away from a power source for long. As for how much extra power its given me, I have estimated it at about 4-6-hours, depending on many things. With WIFI on and running a couple apps, browsing the internet and listening to music or watching youtube videos, I got at least an extra 4-hours. It was longer without the extra apps, youtube videos and/or WIFI. It is very reliable. The cut outs were cut cleanly, especially the wide cutout for the camera and flash. There is a cool feature hidden on the back plastic area of the AP1201; when you press the button on the bottom corner, blue LED lights will appear indicating how much energy is left on it. When pressed for about 2-3 seconds, a red LED light will appear and the AP1201 goes into "quick charge" mode, in which it charges your iPhone faster.

Overall, this Energizer AP1201 iPhone charger is a GREAT lightweight solution for me. It is travel-friendly and will serve me wonderfully on my trip in December. Although I do not like the fact that it easily attracts lint and dust, it keeps me in the loop by keeping my phone from dying. A huge thanks to Energizer for the chance to review this product and the Energizer Universal USB Wall & Car Chargers.

Review - Stop Bugging Me! Bed Bug Spray

Stop Bugging Me Bed Bug Killing Liquid Spray
As I have mentioned, I am going on a trip in December and will be stuck in a plane for over 6+ hours. I am a HUGE germaphobe and get chills thinking about germs, insects and bugs, so you can imagine how worried I'd be about sitting on a plane seat. They do not wash them after each flight, and I do not know who sat in the seat prior to myself. I won't even get started on the pillows and blankets they hand out, yuk!

Thanks to the wonderful people at Stop Bugging Me! I received five bottles of their Stop Bugging Me! Bed Bug Spray bottles; two 12oz. bottles and three 3oz. bottles, which retail for $19.99 and $7.99 respectively. The 3oz. size bottle is travel-size and you will want to take one with you if you are flying. Stop Bugging Me! is safe to use around kids and pets, which sold me immediately. The 12oz. bottle can treat up to 7 queen-size mattresses, and the 3oz can treat 2 queen-size mattresses. So how does this work? You simple spray it on your mattress, where it kills over 50% of bed bugs in 30 seconds and 100% within 15 minutes. The smell of the spray is not offensive whatsoever, it has no strong chemical-type smell, but it still leads me to leave the room until it dies down.

I am especially happy that this product in naturally derived, 100% biodegradable and safe for use around kids and pets. The spray is specially marketed to kill bed bugs but can also be used to control other pests like ants, dust mites, cockroaches, spiders, termites, ticks, carpet beetles and other skin-tingling crawling pests. I have used it on my queen-size mattress over the month AND used it to rid my room of ants. Ants are horrible over the summer, you leave a piece of candy out and in the morning my room is crawling with ants. I vacuum the ants and then spray the area with Stop Bugging Me! spray and they don't come back. It was wonderful to have handy.

The travel size bottle is great to carry around in your bag for use on plane seat, theater seats, luggage, your bag and many other surfaces. I will def. be using this on mine and my families plane seats and our luggage as soon as we arrive at our house in Nicaragua. A huge thanks to Stop Bugging Me! for helping germaphobes like not worry about getting infested with bed bugs on a long flight! :)
