Welcome! Facebook Freebie!

Welcome to Savvy Student Shopper! In this blog I am going to show you how I use all this new available media to become a Savvy Student Shopper. I am always on the lookout for new deals, freebies, and coupons and the internet is booming with these more than it ever has before. The internet provides so many forms of media, such as Facebook, online stores, downloadable cell phone coupons, YouTube advertisements and so much more. In this blog, I will show how this new media can change your shopping ways and make you a great money saver.

My first post is about one of my favorite ways to save money: freebies. Freebies might not seem great to you now, but getting a sample of detergent or a granola bar in the mail is one less load of laundry I have to pay for and one less snack I need to buy. Unknown to many people, Facebook is much more than a site to chat with friends, share pictures, and tell people what you are up to. Facebook is now the location for many great freebies. Today at noon, for instance, Gain, the detergent company, is giving away a 10.3 oz. bottle of Apple Mango Tango Dishwashing Liquid to the first 5,000 people who enter.
