    Default Bounty Bags...

    Hi! Sorry if this question has been posted elsewhere, but when are we supposed to get the Bounty Bags?? I'm kinda looking forward to it...I'm a sucker for showbags...

    Oh Min!!!! Very exciting!!! Apparently we get showbags with all kinds of pg/baby stuff - just for being pg....and then we get another one when the baby's born, and another when the baby turns 6 months!

    You get one when you book into your hospital, the second one you get when bubs is born and the third one you get from Target when bubs is 3 months old. They have a lot of sample stuff, like a nappy, nappy rash cream, maternity pads, voutures(?sp) for different stuff, magazines, etc They're a really great idea!

    I didn't get one from my hospital - apparently you are supposed to get one on your first visit. Some hospitals dont give them out.
    A friend at work who is private got one though, and passed it on to me. They are pretty fun - but I want more!!! I'm a sucker for free things as well.
    I think they say something liek 95% of hospitals give them out - I'm guessing Geelong isn't one of them. Bum.

    hmm, i didnt get one from my hospital, but i havent had any visits there. is a public hospital, but i am going to a private OB. I know they do give them out when Bub's is born though because my sister had her two there.

    how do you get the one from target afterwards, do you get a voucher or something?

    I'm pretty sure there is a voucher in the baby-birth-bounty-bag (hows that for illiteration!) for the 3rd one.
    I'm hoping we get that one at birth, cause I want more free stuff!! Apparently there are pharmacy show bags you can get when you sign up for the pharmacy clubs. I dont know - will have to investigate!

    Every time I see mention of bounty bags I get agro that they don't do them here in Tassie!!! I love free stuff too so I feel majorly ripped off!!!

    Oh really? how scab is that! You would think they'd do it all over Aus. Maybe you should write a letter of complaint Tootie? I'm sure others have.

    Nope, definitely don't get there here. Pretty pathetic IMO!!! Tassie always misses out on stuff, and bounty bags are no exception!!

    I was in a private hospital and didn't get one and I know others who went public and they didn't get them either. Thoroughly ticked off! If I knew who to write to about it, I would!!

    Hmmmmm....I've been for my booking in appointment at the hospital. I think I will have to ask!

    I'm seeing a private ob, but I'm going to the antenatal classes at the hospital every Thursday night. I'll ask the midwife next week.

    Tootie - that sucks! You should ring your local member of parliament and get them to see to it that you get one!

    Can't resist having a little gloat cause I love free stuff so much. Kev's aunt is the purchasing officer for the hospital we are going through and each time they get a new shipment of bags 1 & 2 she has grabbed us one. Cant wait to get my third though.

    I just joined Coles Baby and they seem like they aren't doing the boxes anynmore. Instead you get a voucher for Flybuys points - bully bully - who cares!
    I want more free stuff!!!!!
    I agree its rank that they dont have them in Tassie, but how rank is it that in Geelong 2/3 hospitals have them, and the public one doesn't!!! That is annoying, and I feel very disciminated against for going public! Well not really, but I'm miffed I miss the free stuff....
