ISIS App Verizon

As part of the Verizon Ambassadors SE Voices program, I was asked to check out a mobile payment application called ISIS Mobile Wallet that is offered through Verizon Wireless. I am so excited to have this opportunity, because I am learning about new technology and gaining access to all kinds of great money-saving offers through my phone.

So what exactly is the Isis Mobile Wallet ?

The Isis Mobile Wallet is a way to pay for purchases at retailers that display the contactless symbol.  A technology called NFC* (Near Field Communication) enables the APP to communicate with the checkout terminal, and users simply tap their phone to pay anywhere contactless payments are accepted.

Is Isis Mobile Wallet safe to use?

My phone happens to have an enhanced SIM card designed to store and protect my payment information. Plus for safety purposes, you can select a PIN to use ISIS and if your device is lost one call or click can freeze your Wallet with Remote Wallet locking. More details are at the ISIS Mobile Wallet FAQ page.

How to set-up Isis Mobile Wallet:

To get started simply link credit cards from participating providers including American Express, Chase, and Wells Fargo. Applicable fees may apply for transfers.  In addition you can set up an American Express Serve account or link your banks Debit Card.

Set up for Serve for ISIS

My Credit Card happened to not be on the list so I decided to use the FREE American Express Serve option. Not only was it easy to set up, but I also got a $10 Credit for my enrollment through the ISIS app.

When you sign up for American Express Serve through the ISIS app, you can also get 20% back on every tap with your American Express Serve Account in the Isis Mobile Wallet for up to $200 in credits.  This is a limited time offer good till January 31, 2014. Visit for terms and conditions.

In addition to signing up for payments, I also linked a couple of my rewards cards.  This way I get immediate credit for those purchases. So far I have linked my Toys R Us Card and My Coke Rewards.

I also went through and selected  my favorite retailers like Verizon and Toys R Us to gain access to special offers. I’ve had coupons and FREE items show up already.

Here are a couple of the offers I received this week and I am really liking the FREEBIES from Coke and Jamba. I actually already used the Toys R Us coupon this week and saved myself $15!

There are so many benefits to having this app, and I can’t wait to try it out at additional retailers. So far the TOP benefit has been the coupons, as time goes on it will be nice not to have to pull out my wallet.

Are you making purchases with your mobile phone? What benefits do you see to using the ISIS Mobile Wallet App?

The following is a sponsored post for Coppertone. I was provided free samples of product to facilitate this review. Opinions expressed are that of my own.

Coppertone Sunscreen Products for Kids

Summertime is in full swing here in Florida, and even with Back to School steadily approaching, there is still plenty of warm sunshine left for my kids to play in.

Thanks to Coppertone, I was sent 3 of their sunscreen products to review with my family here on Frugal and Fun Mom. The three items I received were the Kids Wacky FoamSensitive Skin, and Wet n’ Clear. I have used all of these, and they work great. They are easy to apply, are water-resistant, and last up to 80 minutes each.

Recently, we went to a pool party and I used the Kids Wacky Foam with Broad Spectrum SPF 75+.  I’m happy to report that it went on easy and there were no burns.

My youngest son who is 1, can only use Hypoallergenic products due to a skin condition. The Sensitive Skin formula has been perfect for him.  It goes on thick and provides Broad Spectrum SPF 50. This product is made with naturally sourced Zinc Oxide.

Coppertone Sunscreen and Pool Time

The one that has really come in handy is the Wet n’ Clear. My kids love the water, and this has been great when they have been playing in the pool, sprinkler, and at the kiddie water table. Even though they have been wet, it has gone on just as well as the others I used. Wet n’ Clear offers Broad Spectrum SPF 45+.

To learn more about these products and to print a $1.00 off coupon for a limited time, visit or check them out on Facebook at You can find these products at retailer near you or online at

publix baby club


Since I have had 3 kids, I have been a long time member of the Publix Baby Club program.

When I initially signed up as a first time parent, I received an $20 Value book from the American Academy of Pediatrics’ called “Caring for Your Baby and Young Child”, and I got valuable coupons and information pamphlets about baby as well.

With every child thereafter, I continued to receive information related to baby, high value coupons (meat, deli, baby items, etc), and coupons for FREE product at Publix. (FYI, I had to re-enroll for each child).


Publix Baby Club Freebies


I just recently got my first piece of mail from Publix for baby #3 and already redeemed my coupons for FREE items that included rubbing alcohol, lotion, and antibacterial hand gel. Plus, there were plenty of coupons including a $1.00 off meat coupon and a $1.00 off Deli coupon that I will be using on my next trip to the store.

If you have not taking an opportunity to sign up for this program, it is well worth your time. Plus, once your kiddos get bigger, you can transition them over to the Preschool Pals Program.

Thanks to Soft Scrub and Purex Insiders, I was sent two bottles of Soft Scrub Total Household Cleaners to review here on Frugal and Fun Mom.



I first tried out the Soft Scrub Total Bath & Bowl product on my toilets.  I love the way the product smells, and it cleans great. It has two settings for spray or foam, and the foaming action really lets you know that you are getting good coverage when it is sprayed. Plus, it also sprays upside down!

I then tried out the Soft Scrub Total All Purpose with Bleach, and although I am not a fan of bleach smell since I live in Florida I have to use it on occasion to help combat mildew.

This product also has the foaming action (pictured below) and can be sprayed upside down, which comes in handy when cleaning toilets.  It did a great job at cleaning, and an O.K. job at removing the mildew in my shower. However it did not completely remove the stains.  In addition,  I would highly recommend cracking a window when you use this product, because it has a strong odor.

Foaming action!

Of the two products, I definitely prefer the Soft Scrub Total Bath and Bowl
