Greetings and happy Thursday!

Today was one of those days where I had all my deals done early for the day. I had free Aunt Jemima pancakes, free full-sized bottles of detergent -- but go figure as soon as I go to send them to my producers, the offers are all redeemed! I guess that's what happens when the deals are H-O-T!

I did, however, manage to find a few easy send-away freebies I think many of you will like.

The first is a laundry product from SHOUT. You can head to their Facebook fan page and not only sign up to get a free Color Catcher (you drop it in your laundry machine and it helps attract stains and catch them) plus get a high-valued coupon if you buy the full-sized box.

Up next, Maybelline has rolled out with a new makeup called Fit Me. It's designed to match your skin tone perfectly. This is a freebie through Wal-Mart s website.

You should check back at their freebie site periodically, there are usually new freebies there on a weekly basis.

(They also have one for disposable absorbent underwear today too, but I didn't know if that would appeal to many folks or if I could say it on TV without it sounding out of place!)

Lastly, you never thought I'd use the words Gucci and Dion's Daily Deal together in one sentence, but yes, here's a Gucci free sample of their perfume, Guilty. (Sorry ladies and gents, no thousand dollar designer handbags to give away!!)

OK, time to get cracking on my big 11 p.m. story for this Friday. The story of a local woman who bought a $7,000 vacation package to Costa Rica online from a popular travel site only to discover the hotel she booked doesn't exist!

See you at 4 p.m. and 5:30 p.m.


P.S.: I'm without my TV partner, Bobby, today. It looks like after keeping the germs away all winter, he's feeling a bit under the weather. Don't worry, it's nothing serious. He'll be back soon!
