Full Priced Items Free or Discounted

I’ve been telling the readers for nearly 6 months how to get retail items at huge discounts  or full promotional discounts (that means free). I’ve heard from several they don’t have any natural talent at writing and reviewing items intimidates them.  So I thought I’d take an opportunity, since Amazon sucked my review into the nether worlds of technology where all things in digital format seeking eternal rest go, to show you an example of what needs to be said.

This was originally going to be held as a Christmas gift for one of my grandchildren.  I have 6 and by this Christmas I will have one more.  However, since the cat’s out of the bag, and so is the tent, I wanted to use this as a teaching opportunity for the unbelievers out there in the land of no way, Jose!  It’s true.  The free stuff I get is awesome.  Just recently, I mailed my daughter a ten pound box of stuff for her new home.  My year to date #IGotitFree stuff numbers in excess of $5,000.00. That’s how much it would have cost me if I had purchased it at full price.  For that, it’s cost me total out of pocket of just over $100.00 of which I spent nearly zero of my own money.  I’ve earned the money elsewhere. That is, after all, what this blog is about. The BEST of the free stuff. Read the other posts on this blog and learn how.  Some of it goes directly to PayPal.  And here’s one of the neater items I was able to get.

TCamp Children’s Kids Tents Play Tent Portable Folding, Indoor and Outdoor Kid Playhouse Tent is probably one of the first items I selected that wasn’t specifically for myself, my husband or my father in law.  As I said earlier, I’ve started thinking about Christmas gifts for my grandchildren.  I thought this would be perfect for one of them.


Here’s a simple review I was going to leave on their product page until technology reared its ugly head.  This is the funeral service.

Be cautious when unzipping the cute little bag full of fun included for storage. It’s kind of like a snake in a can. It pops out when you least expect it, so suddenly you might jump just a little bit in fright and duck your head in embarrassment when the family laughs at you. Other than a minor hiccup upon opening, it’s extremely easy to set up. It’s folded in a precise manner so there’s very little required. Common sense will see you through that part. If it doesn’t, simply pull the corners apart.

It can be used indoors or outdoors. If you choose to set it up outdoors, there are tent stakes to keep it from turning into a kite. This could be a distinct possibility due to the lightweight material this is constructed from.  There is a thin lining on the bottom so make sure your outdoor area is clear of any debris that may puncture, poke or otherwise maim little bitty feeties or bottoms.  The netting allows for a constant airflow and there’s a little door that can be closed to keep out the insects.

Overall, this is a great tent for any toddler and would make a great ball pit. It’s made from thin material so it doesn’t weight much. You could take it with you just about anywhere.   My only complaint, and it might possibly be my inability to follow instructions in an appropriate manner, is that for the life of me, I couldn’t figure out how to refold the tent to put it back in its proper bag.  If you need a good workout, don’t give up.  It could be considered cardio in the extreme.  I was able to watch a video showing how it was done. Success was mine only to have the zipper on the bag break so I couldn’t store it like it’s supposed to be stored. I was provided this at a full promotional discount in exchange for an honest and unbiased review.

See how simple and easy that was?  Send me an email, message me on Facebook, or holla’ on Twitter. I’ll help you get started.  This truly is the best of free stuff.




I stay at home to care for my 81 year old father in law and my permanent roommate (read: hubby). We enjoy all kinds of activities, together and apart (I'm sure you know how this goes..) My interests are varied and I love learning new things. I am a self declared beauty product junkie simply because I refuse to look any older than 29. My father in law and I grow 8 different berries on our property but would love to expand our garden in the future. We adore kitchen gadgets, aromatherapy, crafting and anything DIY. He is a retired artist, my husband is retired USMC and into all things survivalist (I mean, the zombie apocalypse COULD happen y'all) and I am in charge of everything the men would forget about.
