Tropicana Juicy Rewards, Post 1

This is a compensated review by BlogHer and Tropicana.

There are certain things that always seem to be in our refrigerator: milk, cheese, eggs, bacon, pickles, some sort of leftover that’s covered in plastic wrap and needs to be put out of its misery, and, well, orange juice.

It’s just one of those staples that we always seem to have on hand.

And also? I can’t even tell you how relieved I am that my refrigerator was reasonably clean when I snapped this picture. I didn’t think to check beforehand, and when I uploaded the pics I half-expected to see a streak of ketchup working its way from one shelf to another.

Anyway, when I found out that Tropicana was starting their Juicy Rewards program, I was a little bit curious, mainly because I always like to try out rewards programs for products that I’d be buying regardless. What totally surprised me, though, is how valuable and practical the Juicy Rewards are. You get points for each carton of Tropicana orange juice you buy (you can set up a rewards account on the Tropicana site), and then you can use those points for discounts on lots of different family activities.

(Imagine my delight when I realized that I only needed 2 rewards points for a discount on a 1 1/2 hour massage.)

(My delight, it was significant.)

So for the next couple of months, I’m going to be telling you about how I use some of my rewards. I’m already planning on the massage (DID I MENTION THAT?), and there’s also BOGO admission deal at our favorite science center. I’m especially excited about the discount at a nearby bowling alley, because there are few things in life I enjoy as much as challenging a certain seven year-old boy to a bowling showdown.

Look. He beats me at every other game we play. Surely it’s okay for me to seize the occasional victory while I still can.

And do you know what’s even better? You can totally join the fun. Just set up your rewards account, and check out what rewards are available in your area. You can even get a free reward point (new accounts only) if you use a special BlogHer code:

  3. Milk and bacon. And some sort of juice. And pickles. And eggs. And mayo. Oh wait, you said one item??

  4. I always have…er…mayonnaise and harissa and soy sauce. I USUALLY have milk and eggs and butter and dark chocolate, but we run out of those things. But I always have condiments…oh and my daughter’s candy collection, added to at every major holiday, hoarded carefully away from bugs in the back of the fridge.

  5. Kristin says:

    The essentials, milk, butter, eggs, cheese and best of all some sort of mystery tub of something that was shoved to the back and forgotten about.

  6. always: milk, butter, orange juice, hummus, ketchup, ranch dressing, and lots of cheese.

  7. Always milk.

  8. Amber V. says:

    milk, butter, eggs, cheese, ketchup, and ranch dressing

  9. a half eaten carton of frosting. or 3.

  10. Melissa B. says:

    I always have a huge supply of butter in the fridge. (Except for last week when I was making a birthday cake and actually needed butter, only to find that the two boxes of butter I thought I had in the fridge actually only had about a tablespoon of butter each in them. Strangely, no one could tell that I cut the butter almost in half for the recipe. Either it was the wine or my awesome baking skills.)

  11. We always have tortillas, both flour and corn.

  12. We always have cheese and tortillas, because you never know when the need for a quick quesadilla or burrito will arise.

  13. Leslie Ruth says:

    After embarking upon a “lifestyle change” that involves healthier eating habits, I *always* have fat free sour cream in our fridge. So many uses! {Not to mention that it makes me feel so much better about consuming 8-10 of Pioneer Woman’s Sour Cream Pancakes :) }

  14. We always have milk in there!

  15. When I weaned our triplets off their bottles, they absolutely WOULD NOT drink milk out of a cup. Unless I added chocolate syrup. Which I soon learned from our pediatric dentist is not a good option.

    In lieu of chocolate milk, our pediatrician suggested giving the kids OJ fortified with calcium. Our kids are better about drinking milk now than they once were, but OJ is a staple. And since we’ve got a 4th child in the mix, we go through no less than three gallons of OJ (Tropicana with Calcium is the best) every week.

    So, to answer your question: we always have OJ in our fridge. (Next to the chocolate syrup. Shhh. Don’t tell the dentist!!)

  16. Eggs and apples.

  17. Melanie says:

    Milk, eggs, butter, and soy sauce. :)

  18. i know you said one Melanie, but mine would be ‘every condiment known to man’ and Swiss cheese. i have unofficially dubbed my man the Condiment King, long has he reigned!!

  19. With two little boys, we always have 2 gallons of milk in our refrigerator. We also usually have a huge carton of yogurt… can you tell we have a thing for dairy? ;)
