E-Book Deal Alert: Freakonomics Available for $1.99

It’s all apples and oranges right?

When the book Freakonomics first came out, it set out to turn the study of economics on its head.  Authors Steven D. Levitt and Stephen J. Dubner posed questions such as, “which is more dangerous?  A gun, or a swimming pool?”  “What do school teachers and sumo wrestlers have in common?”  “Why do drug dealers still live with their moms?”  “How much do parents really matter?”  The authors set out to try and show that at the heart of it all, economics is how people get what they want, or need, particularly when other people want, or need the same thing.

That said, if you have not yet had a chance to read this series, be it due to price or any other number of factors, there is currently a great deal on the book for $1.99 on Amazon for the revised and expanded edition!

Save on Macy’s Shoe Sale With the Help of CardCash!

Multiple gift cards from Applebee's, Amazon, Apple and more are being displayed.
Which one to choose?

If you have seen our previous posts, you should know by now that website, loves to spring weekend sales on their already discounted gift cards (pun intended).  This coming weekend is no exception.  With code “SWINGSPRING” you can save an additional 7% on retailers such as the likes of Victoria’s Secret, Henri Bendel, Lululemon, Talbot’s, Macy’s, H&M and more!

Grabbing discounted gift cards has been one of our favorite ways to save on shopping (or certainly too if you need to find a gift card for someone as well), and this a great way to keep more money in your wallet.  Also, if you really want to stack the savings, be sure to look for items at these retails that are already on markdown.  For example, Macy’s is currently offering a huge shoe sale through April 16th, with 40% off of 3 pairs, 30% off of 2 pairs, and 25% off of one pair.  Pair that with an already discounted Macy’s gift card and you should be doing pretty well!

Have fun shopping this weekend!

Take 15% off at In Time for Easter

Just a sample of what you can look for…

It is hard to believe that Easter is right around the corner, and if there is one thing that is always enjoyed by children at Easter time, it’s sweets.  Now through April 30th, with promo code, TAKE15, you can take 15% off of your entire order at Cheryl’s web site.

Cheryl’s got its start in Columbus, OH, and having personally lived there for a few years, I got a chance to try out how good these cookies are, and I can definitely vouch for them.  You honestly can’t go wrong with any of them.

Here’s a brief overview of the company:

In 1981, Cheryl Krueger and her college roommate, Caryl Walker, opened the very first Cheryl’s Cookies® in Columbus, Ohio. The modest storefront sold six kinds of cookies, along with soda pop. Within just seven years, the company broadened its offerings to include gifts and desserts, and with this growth came a new name–Cheryl’s®

As the company grew, new desserts were added: gourmet brownies, cakes and fancy cookies, including seasonal cut-out cookies topped with a signature buttercream frosting. Cheryl’s also expanded its gift business by producing seasonal catalogs filled with gift ideas for every occasion, and adding a customer-focused business gift department to better serve medium and large companies.

Today, Cheryl’s is a multi-faceted business comprised of retail stores in Ohio, a high-traffic Internet business and a successful Business Gift Division, all headquartered in the Columbus suburb of Westerville, Ohio. A 2005 merger enabled Cheryl’s to become a part of the 1-800-Flowers Family of Brands., while maintaining the company’s mission to provide the finest freshly-baked gifts and desserts. The company’s four divisions (Retail, Catalog, Business Gift Services and Internet) can be found at
