SnipSnap These Freebies at the Mall This Week:

It sounds innocent enough: “I’m going to the mall!” You’ve been doing it since you were tweScreen Shot 2013-03-05 at 2.34.15 PMlve, by yourself or with your friends to hang out or de-stress. The mall has just about everything anyone needs: food, entertainment, retail-therapy, and lots of walking room to get in some good old fashioned exercise. (Did you know you could take 3,000 – 6,000 steps in a single mall visit?) But the mall can actually be very dangerous for most people, because the temptation to let your spending impulse dominate your social impulseScreen Shot 2013-03-05 at 2.34.08 PM can be too overwhelming to resist. Have you ever gone to the mall “just to window shop” and ended up spending hundreds of dollars at the Gap because you were really attracted to the color scheme of the window display? It happens to the best of us.

It doesn’t have to happen anymore – if you plan ahead how to treat yourself at the mall without going absolutely crazy. This is totally easy to do with SnipSnapped mobile coupons. I regularly update my Mall coupon bundle with all of the best discounts and freebies I find in the SnipSnap app, so I always have fun offers on hand when I visit the mall. (Follow me in SnipSnap and subscribe to my Mall coupon bundle if you want to see how I’m saving!) What looks good this week? Oh, you know, just free champagne tea and flip flops.

If you know me, you know I’m on a huge spring fling kick. I’m using my smart phone to shop for five dollar sundresses and save on my every day cup of coffee so I have plenty to spend on summer excursions. This week, I’ve SnipSnapped more mall deals to help build my spring/summer wardrobe. I’m excited about recent snippings for Old Navy and Macy’s, as well as this coupon for a free pair of flip flips at Aerie with any $40 purchase. I’m also stoked about this offer for a completely free cup of tea from Teavana. Choose from Strawberry Rose Champagne (my pick!) and Peach Tranquility and sip the calming smoothness while you shop to prevent you from needing too much retail therapy.

Check out all the great mall offers in the SnipSnap app right now! And next time you visit the mall, be mindful of all the ways you can score that familiar mall-induced-feel-good effect without spending an exorbitant amount of money.
