Welcome!

Check back regularly for new information about my favorite freebies, sweepstakes, discounts, paid surveys, product tests, online focus groups, and anything else I am excited about and want to share! I will do my best to give you opportunities to add to your income a little here and there and make your trips to the mailbox a lot more exciting. For those of you who love contests as much as I do, I will also be holding giveaways of my own now and then to reward my faithful readers. Hope you have a wonderful day! Check back soon for my next giveaway!







UPDATE: Winners have been selected by randomizer.org and notified by email. Congratulations to js22, Meet the Browns, and barbara! Please respond with your name and address within three days so that I can send your prize. Thanks to everyone who entered my contest. Check back soon for the next one!

The wonderful people over at MyBlogSpark.com and Chex have given me the opportunity to test out some of their new Chex Mix Turtle Bars, and best of all, they are also supplying six extra boxes of these delicious snacks to give away to three of my readers here at Modern Frugality!

Each box comes with six 1.2-oz bars of gooey sweetness containing caramel-covered Corn Chex, Wheat Chex, chocolate, peanuts, and pretzels. The number one ingredient in these bars is whole wheat flour, providing at least 8 grams of whole grain per serving. Each bar contains less than less than 150 calories. So, while after tasting these it's difficult to say that they are actually healthy, I can say that if you're going to indulge in something sweet these provide a way to do it in a way that leaves you feeling a little less guilty than you would with some of the sugary snacks that are out there. They definitely get a big thumbs up from my four-year-old, who says he likes them A LOT. :)

Now, down to the fun part! We will be giving away three prizes, each consisting of 2 boxes of Chex Mix Turtle Bars. All you have to do to enter is post a comment on this page. Be sure to include your email address or have it listed on your blogger account so that I have a way to contact you if you win. You may enter once daily. U.S. Residents only, please.

Extra entries may be gained by doing any of the following:
1. Share ways in which you like to indulge or wind down after a long day.
2. Follow my blog.
3. Post about this contest on another site, such as Twitter or Facebook.

Don't forget to post an additional comment for each of these that you do in order for it to count as an entry.

The contest will end on Friday, July 10, 2009 at midnight Eastern time. The three winners will be emailed and posted here shortly thereafter.

Good luck!

My husband loves to take these Chex Mix bars on the golf course with him! I am not sure if it improves his game though.

These look SO delicious!

barbara said...

I wind down by reading suspense/thriller novels right before bed. My brain is so busy being tense over fiction that, when I close the book, let me fall asleep before I can start worrying about REAL life tension.

barbara said...

eek - I'm your 13th follower! I hope that's not bad luck!
