I received Free tickets to the Brickyard 400 from Kroger Indianapolis!

This offer is no longer available! It ended on June 25, 2014. I hope some of you were able to get your tickets! 

I feel very lucky!!!! I got 2 free tickets from Kroger for the Brickyard 400 that will be held next month!  How did I do it? Well, it was very easy.  I spent $150 in a single transaction in groceries with 4 Eckrich items (you must purchase these times) and a voucher code for the Brickyard 400 was printed on the receipt. This promotion was actually printed on their ad in the Thursday's IndyStar paper. The promotion states that free tickets are given while limited supplies last, so I was a bit nervous about getting online to redeem my code, but I was successful in getting my 2 free tickets. Yay!  If I were to purchase them, they are around $180 in value. My husband is very happy, so is his neighbor friend who will be going with him to the race. 

I just want to let everyone know that I also received 2 tickets to the Indy 500 last month from Kroger as well for taking advantage of the similar promotion that they had back in April. If you plan to shop at an Indianapolis area Kroger this week, you might want to try to get your free tickets!!! The promotion started on Thursday, June 19, 2014 and ends on Wednesday, June 25, 2014 and as always, please check with your local Kroger for more details.

I’ve had a positive experience from this promotion, but please remember that your experience may differ from mine. Good luck everyone!

Due to the overwhelming demand and in answer to the request of thousands of fans, the Backstreet Boys have extended their In A World Like This U.S. tour to reach additional cities and return to those markets that sold out so quickly in 2013. With last summer’s crowds as big as 16,000 per night, the In A World Like This U.S. tour became the group's biggest tour in over 10 years, proving that Backstreet is truly back. The Backstreet Boys will return to Indianapolis at Klipsch Music Center on Friday, June 13 at 7:30pm with very special guest Avril Lavigne.

“This has been an amazing year!” says Nick Carter. “So much has happened and it just keeps on going. It’s amazing for all five of us to see and feel this kind of response! How can we not come back and show our incredible fans this show?!”
Currently on a sold-out world tour in support of their new album In A World Like This and celebrating 20 years of record-breaking hits, BSB's extended tour will return to North America on Saturday, May 3, in Moncton, New Brunswick at the Moncton Coliseum, with shows scheduled in Los Angeles, Chicago, Houston, Vancouver, Seattle and Las Vegas. BSB are happy to be joined by Avril Lavigne on all U.S. tour dates, which you can find below.
"We really wanted to put together a great show and do our best to give everyone their money’s worth,” says Brian Littrell. “Avril is an unbelievably talented artist who's a perfect fit to make these shows extra special for our fans."
It’s been an exciting year of honors and accolades for AJ, Brian, Howie, Kevin and Nick. In A World Like This debuted in the Top 5, the group received a star on the legendary Hollywood Walk of Fame, performed for the President of the United States and made an unforgettable appearance in the Seth Rogen hit film This Is The End, which earned the guys a “Best Musical Moment” award nomination at this year’s MTV Movie Awards. 
“Being a part of This Is The End has been amazing from start to finish!” says AJ McLean. “Seth, James and everyone else in this crew are beyond talented and we were extremely lucky to be a part of this film.”

I had a chance to try out a bottle of COPPERTONE® CLEARLYSheer  for sunny days SPF 30 sunscreen lotion that I received free from BzzAgent yesterday. Since I was outside all day yesterday working on my garden,  it was a perfect day to try out this product.

On the front of the bottle, this product states/claims that it:                                                         

-Won’t cause breakouts
-Helps leave skin soft
-Fast absorbing
-Feels clean and light

My skin is very sensitive, so I first tested it on a small area of my skin to make sure that my skin did not react to it. When I applied it, it smelled so nice. I was happy to see that it worked perfectly fine for my skin without any issues and I continued to use it for rest of my skin. Its statement was true that it won’t cause breakouts! I loved the fact that this sunscreen almost felt like I was just applying a moisturizing skin lotion leaving my skin feel very soft. I was also very surprised by the fact that it absorbed very quickly and it did not leave that sticky feeling that I usually feel with the other sunscreens on the market. I really don’t have anything negative to say about this product at all. I’m very happy.  My oldest daughter also used it during a hot day going to see the Indy 500. She said it was very gentle for her skin as well and she loved the smell. She prefers using this sunscreen from now on. This sunscreen definitely gets an A+ from me. 

I also received a small sample bottle of Coppertone sunscreen continuous spray, but haven’t had a chance to try it out. It is a water resistant sunscreen spray with SPF 50. I’m going to try it next time I go swimming and will try to write a review. 

Although I received this product for a free of charge via  this review is based on 100% based on my own experience and opinion. I had an amazing experience with this product, but please understand that your experience with this product may differ from my experience. 

Happy summer everyone and make sure to protect your skin!
