There are more companies getting interested in Facebook for their promotions and giveaways.  The Stacy’s Pita Chips free bag giveaway is now closed.  If you were lucky enough to become a fan of Stacys you’ll receive your coupon for a free bag in the mail in January.

More companies are jumping in, and finding that Facebook is a great way to learn who is paying attention to their product – and who will spread the word.

Right now on Facebook, you can get a coupon for a free pint of International Delight Creamer. Become a fan, and click on the tab that says “Holiday Giveaway” and fill in the form.

Get a coupon for $1 off Jimmy Dean Sausage on Facebook.  Click “become a fan” and enter your email.  They’ll email you a confirmation code, which you’ll then log back onto Facebook with and enter by clicking the become a fan link again.  Take it to Walmart, where the sausage is on sale for $2.

Why do manufacturers and retailers want you to be a fan on facebok?  It’s easy – the power of multiple social networks.  When you become a fan of a page for a product or service, it’s posted to your profile.  Your friends see the link, and think it might be a good idea.  So they then become “fans”.

Sometimes these sign ups, when they involve a free coupon, mean that you give your email or your snail mail address.  The company then knows who is interested in their product, who is buying it, and where. This is an incredible amount of market research that is accomplished very quickly, cheaply, and efficiently.  It is very targeted.

So it is a win-win. I like it, because I connect with friends a lot on Facebook, and I enjoy sharing deals among friends!

Good Tip: Saving money is important – especially if you have a lot of expenses like bills to pay, loans to pay off, and all the other things that drain your bank account. Figuring out a way to save money can feel tedious to some, and like a punishment to others. U.S. News suggests that you try one of these money saving challenges. The “No Eating Out for a Month” Challenge This one is self-explanatory. The goal is to avoid eating out for an entire month. This might be super easy for people who enjoy making meals at home. People who really enjoy dining out, or ordering food to be sent to their home, may struggle with this one. It’s worth a try because spending money on take-out is more expensive than buying groceries. The Pantry Challenge This one is a variation of the “No Eating Out for a Month” challenge. The goal is to use up all of your groceries before you buy more. It forces you to try and remember why you bought a food or beverage that you don’t know what to do with, and gives you the opportunity to find a way to use it. The one exemption to this challenge is the foods that have expired. Don’t eat them! Throw them in the trash. The “No Spend” Challenge Make a goal to avoid spending money during an entire weekend. The only exemption in this challenge is that you are allowed to pay bills. This challenge is interesting because it requires creativity. You must be creative and find workarounds for problems that you would typically solve by spending money. You may have a different outlook on spending after finishing this challenge.
