Friday freebies: free lotion, Emeril cookbook, Fig Newtons, USA Today subscription, and more!
Get a free sample of Eucerin Daily Skin Balance lotion when you sign up on its site. Getting the freebie requires you to share your name, address, and email. The free sample takes 4-6 weeks to arrive. It's unclear when supplies of this freebie will run out. After signing up, Eucerin asks you to take a pledge to care for your skin every day. Wearing sunscreen and protecting my skin is important but taking a pledge? CHEESEY!
To celebrate 20 years of cooking, renown chef Emeril Lagasse is giving away electronic copies of recipes from his three New Orleans restaurants. The cookbook includes 11 recipes, from BBQ shrimp with rosemary biscuits to Miss Hay's Stuffed Chicken Wings and a Delmonico Martini. (Stomach grumbles.) Is it lunch time? The free electronic cookbook is 32 pages (6 MB) so give it a few minutes to download if you have a high-speed connection and even longer if you use dial up. I've never tried Emeril's recipes or eaten at his restaurants. Is he any good? He must be, given his popularity.
Amazon is sharing the first episode of Planet Earth for free in HD. I have seen this episode, called Pole to Pole, and it is amazing. Sigourney Weaver narrates and the footage of sharks, seals, and polar bears is absolutely amazing. I was also impressed with the Deep Ocean episode but not the Mountains episode, which felt rushed. It is unclear how long this freebie will be around so watch it now.
Fig Newtons are on sale for $1 this week at CVS, which means they are free when you print out this Facebook coupon and bring it to the store. The coupon expires June 30, but you must print it out by Friday, April 30, or before 100,000 of the coupons have been printed. The deal is to celebrate Fig Newton turning 119. Wow, that's an old cookie!
