Get a free movie for one night at a Blockbuster Express kiosk using coupon codeGL14A. It expires June 30, 2010.

On the Blockbuster Express website, click on Movies to see what else they have. The free rental is for one night, which usually costs $1. If you keep the free movie longer than 24 hours, your credit card will be charged another buck. You do not need a Blockbuster account to use their kiosks. If you want another free rental code for Blockbuster Express, join their email list. Newbies get a free rental for joining!

Get a pair of free thong underwear from American Apparel when you sign up for their email list. Joining means sharing your email address, date of birth, zip code and sex.

After you sign up, American Apparel will immediately email you for your address and phone number. You can choose which size you want to receive, from XS to XL. Styles and colors will vary. The freebie underwear will show up in a few weeks, so be patient. It's unclear how long this freebie will last. I'm guessing a day or so!

I wish I' read this article years ago. I miss shopping on holiday sales in the US. Right now I'm writing down the stuff that I need that can be bought on bargain in Sears and Banana Republic to be shipped where I'm at right now and won't reach me in another 4 weeks. Glad that I have no problem with gupo.com.ph's travel deals online.
