Baby/Kid/Family Green Deals and Steals: post them here!

post #1 of 43
Thread Starter 

Okay, okay, so we have the general Green Deals and Steals thread.  But what about those deals that are baby, kid, and specifically family-related?  Those deserve a thread of their own! 


We've already got a few resources on the subject, like KayMMIV's list of freebies and a wiki on how to go organic without going broke


But if you hear of a great sale, discount, coupon, freebie, etc. that's kid or baby related..feel free to post it here!

A glossary of terms and a resource guide to books, magazines, websites, videos, and CDs, and listings of childbirth classes and instructors nationwide are also included.

not really green, well they are veggies but... lol, but it's for kids and it's a steal

Free Veggietales DVD


I am not sure how long this promotion is going from. I found out about the ffs dvd from

You can get a free veggietales dvd from (the official veggietales company, veggie tales are bible based shows teaching morals) when you sign up for their newsletter. You get a choice of Lessons From The Sock Drawer, Where's God When I'm S-scared and The Ballad of Little Joe. Shipping is $2.99 for the cheapest option.

Or you can get free shipping if you buy $30 or more, so I figured out what the cheapest deal for the most dvds was and here's what I came up with.

God Wants Me to Forgive Them!?! VeggieTales DVD $7.99

LarryBoy and the Rumor Weed VeggieTales DVD $7.99

Minnesota Cuke and the Search for Noah's Umbrella VeggieTales DVD
Buy Minnesota Cuke and get LarryBoy and the Bad Apple DVD FREE! $14.99

Lessons From The Sock Drawer - Pre Order $0.00

To do it first go here- and pick out your free dvd. You'll have to sign up with a new account to get it. Then go here- to order the Buy Minnesota Cuke and get LarryBoy and the Bad Apple DVD FREE! Make sure to put a note in the shipping/special instructions box when you check out about getting the larryboy dvd free, I couldn't figure out how to make it show up in the cart and there are no instructions for it (that text is from the order page but doesn't show up in the cart, i just put it here to simplify things when explaining). Then order LarryBoy and the rumor weed here- and God wants me to forgive here- .

Your total ends up being $30.97. Use coupon code SHIP213 for free shipping on orders over $30.

These are the only dvds currently on the site that are actual shows (not singalongs, if you want to get sing alongs there are tons for $4.95 and up) that you can get to make it this cheap per dvd. There are only 2 dvds that are $7.99, all the others are more and the then b1g1 with Minnesota cuke and larry boy make them $7.50 each. add in the free dvd from signing up for the newsletter and that makes them on average just under $6.20 each, which is a really good deal for veggietales, used or new and these are new :)
