Big American Apparel Deal from Groupon

Posted on: November 17, 2010 I Written By

Test to see if this appears.

The deal is $25 for $50 worth of clothing and accessories from American Apparel. The fine print is that this is limited to 1 per person, and that it is not valid on multi-packs, California Select Vintage, Multibrand products or shoes. It is for online redemption only on the U.S. site.

That’s what you call a great deal. You can also just click the banner. It should update to the latest and greatest Groupon Deals!

My Love of Pizza

Posted on: March 16, 2010 I Written By

Test to see if this appears.

This is a Sponsored Post written by me on behalf of Tony’s Pizza. All opinions are 100% mine.

Everyone that knows me knows that I eat a lot of pizza. It’s my favorite thing to eat in the world I think. Well, there might be a few desserts that come close, but as far as a meal I eat pizza far too often. People at my work make fun of me for only eating pizza. What can I say? I will often be found going to a buffet and then just eating the pizza. To me a buffet is often just all I can eat pizza.

With this background, you can imagine how excited I was to get some Tony’s Pizza coupons for free pizza in the mail. My wife called me when the free coupons arrived and I told her to go to the store and get it, because I needed me some Tony’s Pizza tonight. Since I’m an expert on pizza, I’ve always found Tony’s to be the best value. It’s a much better quality pizza than say a Totino’s pizza, but isn’t overpriced like a Red Barron pizza.

The pizza was delicious as usual. The only problem was that my kids decided to eat the Tony’s Pizza too and so I didn’t get enough of it. Dang kids never eat dinner and they chomped down this pizza.

I must admit that it’s always nice to have a frozen pizza that I can just throw in the oven and eat. I say this because my wife recently ordered some Dominos Pizza. They told her it would be 30 minutes, but then it showed up 30 minutes late. Do you know how annoying that is? I can barely wait the 15 minutes for the frozen pizza to cook. Imagine waiting a good 30 minutes extra for pizza when you’re hungry.

Of course, Dominoes heard that we were mad that it was late and so they sent us something in the mail saying sorry and offering us some coupons. This would have been really cool. Too bad the coupons were of no value since they were the same discounts we can get by just calling and ordering. Seriously??? So, to make up for their crappy delivery service they’re going to try and sell us more of their product?

Needless to say, I don’t have to worry about that with frozen pizza. Looks like more Tony’s Pizza for me and less Dominos.

New Savings and Making Money Website

Posted on: June 22, 2009 I Written By

Test to see if this appears.

I have a friend that is really good at scouring the internet to find all sorts of ways to save money or even make money in many cases. His wife would always make fun of him for how much time he spends online looking for deals and ways to make money.

My favorite is when he combined a whole bunch of deals from credit cards and ended up with a stack of cash, miles and other benefits. Although, the funniest one was when he made his wife wait 30 minutes to go to dinner so that he could get a discount which would save him $0.80. Shows you how serious he is about saving money.

Well, I was talking to him the other day and told him he should start a blog about all the various deals he finds. After our discussion, I helped him out and setup Mound of Money. He’s already created a post talking about getting discount hotels and Obama’s Cash for Clunkers program. Watch that site and I think you’re going to really like what he posts.

Also, if you like what he’s written do him a favor and stumble some of his posts. Thanks!

Huge Clearance Sale at Sears

Do you like clearance sales? Well I just found out about a great one! Sears is having a HUGE clearance sale until Saturday, April 18, 2009. They are offering 75-80% off original prices on most fall and winter apparel.

Sears Outfit

I know that fall has been over for a while now and we are at the end of winter, but now is a great time to buy clothes for the next fall and winter seasons, especially when the clearance sale is this huge. The apparel can also be a great birthday present for someone who has an early fall/winter birthday.

I was quite impressed as I was looking through the online catalog. Every time I have shopped at a huge clearance sale, there was never a wide variety of clothing. However Sears is offering a “Clearance Clothing for the Family.” Their featured categories are for women, women’s plus, men, juniors, young boys and girls, and infants.

My favorite outfit was the Apostrophe Tunic top and pants.

It is on sale for $5.99 each, but is normally $36.00 each. This was my favorite outfit because it can be a casual outfit, yet it can also be considered business attire too. It also has a squareneck design and fits loosely, so it could possibly be worn during the summer as well. My wife will love it.

There are a ton of great Las Vegas shows that have plenty of tickets available for those interested in catching some of the best entertainment in the world. Check out just a few of the most popular shows on the strip. Ticket prices start at $35 for a Las Vegas show. Click on one of the shows to buy your tickets now.

I’ve personally seen Blue Man Group and Phantom and they are both spectacular experiences. I’ll give the edge to Blue Man Group, because it’s so unique and different. Plus, it hits all of your senses in such a variety of ways. The ending of Blue Man Group also just can’t be described. I’ll leave it at that so I don’t give too much away.

The comedy pet theatre is done by a guy named Popovich that I first saw on America’s Got Talent. Nice to see he’s making a living with a show on the las vegas strip.

Anyone else have Las Vegas shows that they like on the list?

Rare McDonald’s Monopoly Pieces 2008 – Only the Important Monopoly Pieces

Posted on: October 15, 2008 I Written By

Test to see if this appears.

As I’ve done in 2006 and 2007, I’m going to list again all the rare McDonald’s monopoly pieces for all to enjoy. This time I’m also going to list the prize that is associated with the McDonald’s monopoly piece. Lots of good prizes out there if you find the rare monopoly piece which is used to determine the odds of winning.

As always, if you’re missing the monopoly pieces that aren’t the rare ones, you can go and purchase the McDonald’s Monopoly pieces on eBay. This way you only have to look for the rare pieces and then purchase the rest of them on eBay if you happen to get one of the rare ones.

Golden Avenue is code number 271 and wins a prize of $100,000
Water Works is code number 279 and wins a prize of $50
Mediterranean Avenue is code number 251 and wins a prize of $100
Vermont Avenue is code number 254 and wins a prize of $1,000
Virginia Avenue is code number 258 and wins a prize of $2,000
Tennessee Avenue is code number 260 and wins a prize of $5,000
Kentucky Avenue is code number 262 and wins a prize of $10,000
Ventnor Avenue is code number 266 and wins a prize of $25,000
Pennsylvania Avenue is code number 270 and wins a prize of $50,000
Boardwalk is code number 274 and wins a prize of $1,000,000 (annuity)
Short Line is code number 278 and wins a prize of $500

Let me know if you find one of the rare ones. I have a feeling this year one of my readers is going to win one of the big McDonald’s monopoly prizes. I just wish they had a monopoly piece on their sausage egg mcmuffins. Then, I’d have a great shot at winning.

Gimpshop – Replacement for Photoshop and Gimp

Posted on: September 30, 2008 I Written By

Test to see if this appears.

Today I saw a tweet that linked to GIMPShop. I’ve been a big fan of GIMP for obvious reasons. It’s free. However, I have been disappointed with certain things that I liked much better in Photoshop, but was unwilling to pay for. I’m going to try out Gimpshop when I next have to edit an image (that would be tonight I think) and see how it goes. Looks like a nice free alternative to GIMP.

Free Phone Calls to Anywhere

Posted on: September 29, 2008 I Written By

Test to see if this appears.

I’ve always been about free calls ever since about 2000 when I first saw the free phone call service which I used extensively as a poor college student who couldn’t pay long distance costs. It’s become less of an issue these days with cell phones, but there are a number of times that I’ve wanted to make a call on my computer and not have/use a cell phone. Techcrunch just posted about IconDial being a new free service.

The best part of IconDial is that you can call any number in the world for free. I’m hoping to try my friends cell phone in Italy which is usually really expensive to call from the US. Too bad he’s probably in bed right now.

The sad part is that I think Techcrunch is probably right. However, my guess is that a new VC will fund the next startup to see if they can do it again. So, we should have a perpetual supply of free phone call websites until the costs of the phone call are free. Someone’s going to do it sooner or later and if they don’t VCs will continue funding it until it does happen.

$100 Off Kindle – What’s Amazon Up To?

Posted on: August 25, 2008 I Written By

Test to see if this appears.

Today I was notified that Chase users can get $100 off the Amazon Kindle. Here’s the message:

Thanks to Chase, your readers may be eligible to receive $100 off the regular Kindle price.’s revolutionary wireless reading device now has more than 160,000 books plus top newspapers and blogs available and is more affordable than ever with this limited time offer from Chase.

I’m sure this is a way for Chase to be able to get more people using them, but what’s Amazon doing? Is Amazon helping to subsidize the cost of Kindle so that it can sell other Amazon products? Either way, if you’ve been looking at a Kindle and use Chase, then this deal is worth taking a look at.

My Favorite Tech Deal Site – Tech Bargains

Posted on: November 8, 2007 I Written By

Test to see if this appears.

As a person working in technology I have tons of people at work that come up to me and ask me for some help in purchasing a computer. Generally I find this a painful experience because there are a zillion options and people don’t generally know what they want. However, if it is someone I like then I usually pull up my big girl panties and help them out, because I know that if I don’t then they are going to get ripped off and pay twice what I could find for them.

Even for people I don’t really care to help I always direct them to a site I’ve been using since I was in college called Tech Bargains. My favorite addition to their site was their easy link to Dell Deals. I love purchasing a dell computer and using various tricks that Tech Bargains has to get the best discount. My wife recently bought a digital camera on a whim. I wish she would have checked out the cheap digital camera list that Tech Bargains has. I think we could have saved some money, but oh well. At least she got a good discount where she got it and it looks like it should be a pretty nice camera.

I highly recommend watching tech bargains for good deals on computers. That’s what I’ve used for buying my computers and many of my friends. Sometimes you have to watch for the deals to come around, but I’ve been able to find some good ones.
