Summer is wedding season for many people and believe me, these events are pricey affairs. Every little way to save helps, so here’s one for you engaged folks: Head over to the Shutterfly Facebook page to sign up to receive a promo code for a free wedding guest book. The code is valid for a free 8 x 11 hardcover photobook that is typically sold for $39.99.

Though the offer says it’s for a free wedding-themed book, it has been working for all types of themed books, according to multiple websites in the know. So even if a wedding sign in book isn’t what you want, perhaps another book theme will strike your fancy. You will have to pay shipping of about $8 but it’s well worth it. Go to: to get started. The offer ends Aug. 4.

I like sweepstakes, but sometimes the prizes aren’t worth the effort it takes to enter. The This Old House Great Giveaway is not one of those contests I ignore. Check it out at Enter every day to win one of dozens of home improvement prizes including appliances, flooring, generators, tools and more. There’s no cost and no requirement to subscribe.

Kohl’s always seems to have awesome sales going on. Shop online at this week and use the promo code IceCream at checkout to save 15 percent off your purchase through July 21. Good on all regular, sale and clearance merchandise and remember, Kohl’s offers free shipping on orders over $75.

If you’re 55 or older and enjoy the chance to win money and eat on the cheap, head to Mogehan Sun at Pocono Downs in Plains Township each Monday morning this summer.

From 9 to noon there are no-entry-fee slot tournaments for seniors with a $500 cash prize on the line. Registration opens at 8 a.m. on the Sky Bridge. While you’re there, take advantage of the $5.55 breakfast buffet at Timbers Buffet from 7 to 10 a.m. for guests 55 and older.

Get a free 20-ounce triple berry shake at Arby’s with the purchase of any combo meal and the coupon you can print by going here:

Another cool offer can be found at Baskin Robbins, where to celebrate National Ice Cream Month the parlor is offering free freshly-baked waffle cone when you order a double-scoop. And even though the national observance ends July 31, the offer runs through August at Baskin Robbins.

If your beach bag is starting to show its wear and tear, head to Victoria’s Secret today and spend $65 on products and you’ll get a free Victoria’s Secret tote bag, which is a $68 value, for free. The deal ends today only as long as supplies last and you must ask for it. This deal is not valid in outlet stores.
