It's Friday, which means it's time for freebies.
Starting Saturday and continuing through the month of July, donate blood at a Wake County public library and receive a free American Red Cross T-shirt and be entered into a drawing to win an iPad and a $3,000 gift certificate. Check here for dates and locations.
Through the holiday weekend, Blockbuster stores are offering free movie rentals when you rent one new release. The deal is good through July 4 at store-fronts, not the Blockbuster Express kiosks. You must rent one $2.99 new release, which entitles you to unlimited movies priced $1.99 or less for free. The freebies are one-day rentals and are limited to one at a time. Click here for more details and to download the coupon.
And here's a good one for the kids. On Tuesday, kids ages 6 to 14 can build a free mini model of a lighthouse at the Lego Store at Crabtree Valley Mall. The event starts at 5 p.m. while supplies last.
The store sponsors a free mini model workshop on the first Tuesday of every month. Check here for more details.
