On Hiatus

I'm going on an indefinite break. Google has decided to drop me from both Google Adsense and their Affiliate Network. I've written to them to find out why my account is being deactivated, but have heard no word back. Thus, I won't be posting for a while. Thanks Google, you sure do know how be a buzzkill. (As a reaction, I'm now going to cancel my gmail and officially become a proud and loyal Yahoo account user).

Hope you enjoyed the rebates and samples I posted, some are still active so feel free to explore some older posts. Take care.


P.S. I feel like Google has ripped out my guts and destroyed my livelihood, in a way.

Tip of the Week

There are a lot of great Deal websites available today - such as Groupon, LivingSocial, KGBDeals, and a few others. But there in my experience there is 1 Deal Site I will NEVER use again called . I purchased a deal from here once and that was a Huge mistake. I spent $10 in order to receive $20 worth of baked goods at a selected bakery near my home. When I finally went to go use the certificate the place didn't seem to exist. Not only that but I also tried to call the number of the bakery and it was just a recording, so I assume the establishment went out of business.
Now, I can certainly understand that. In the past, when something has occurred of a similar nature -which rarely happens, but it does - Groupon and LivingSocial were quick to kindly credit me the money I was owed. I called the customer service number half a dozen times and left messages as well. I also wrote several emails stating the problem. It was 2 weeks before anyone got back to me with any sort of response. I was told I'd be refunded the money in check form. It's now over 2 months and I've yet to see that check. I'm still sending numerous emails a day trying to pester the company into refunding my money. AVOID

Be careful with lesser known websites, but don't ever feel shy to fight for your money back. That's my tip, stick with the more common and reliable deal sites like Groupon.

*I've checked online recently, and this company HomeRun has had numerous complaints about refund refusals for the services they could not provide, so I'm not the only one.

Free SILK SOYMILK - Coupon or Rebate (your choice)

Silk soymilk has a "Love it Guarantee," which basically states: you can receive a Silk replacement coupon OR your money back, when you purchase Silk and you are not very happy with the product.

Include your printed full name, mailing address, and brief reason for why you're unhappy with Silk.

I personally don't like Silk, I much prefer ZenSoy or Greenway, so this rebate works for me :-)

Tip of the Week

You don't need to go out and pay $50 for a facial at a spa or waste money on facials-in-a-bottle from high priced stores like Sephora. You can make your own sweet-smelling and cheap facial at home using items you have in your fridge.

The simplest one is the Lemon Facial Create a facial that both exfoliates and moisturizes by mixing the juice from 1 lemon with ¼ cup olive oil or sweet almond oil.

The weirdest one is the Mustard FacialPat your face with mild yellow mustard for a bracing facial that will soothe and stimulate your skin. Try it on a small test area first to make sure it will not be irritating.

Here are 9 different facial mask recipes you can try out at home:

And if you don't have some of the items for the recipes at home and need to go out to the supermarket, here's a tip for grocery shopping: 
If you hate crowds and lines, shop at dinnertime (5 to 9 p.m.) or even later. Only 4 percent of shoppers hit the aisles between 9 p.m. and 8 a.m. Least-crowded day of the week? Wednesday.

Tip of the Week

Here's a terrific article called "14 Ways to Save Money on Groceries." 

Two tips I liked and will be using:

-  In order to make cottage cheese or sour cream last longer, place the container upside down in the fridge. Inverting the tub creates a vacuum that inhibits the growth of bacteria that causes food to spoil.

-  Believe it or not, honey is the only nonperishable food substance, so don’t get rid of the stuff if it crystallizes or becomes cloudy. Microwave on medium heat, in 30-second increments, to make honey clear again.

To read all 14 helpful tips, check out the article:

Happy reading!

Tip of the Week

Did you know that the best day to buy airline tickets is Tuesday?

Rick Seaney, chief executive of, studied three years worth of airline prices and concluded that 3 p.m. Eastern time Tuesday was the best time to buy. "That's when the maximum number of cheapest seats are in the marketplace," he said.

The day you depart can more heavily influence the fare than the day you buy. If your plans are flexible, travel on a Tuesday, Wednesday or Saturday and you typically find prices far below Monday, Friday or Sunday flights.

Also, How far in advance you buy still impacts pricing. While few domestic fares require purchase 21 days before departure, the cheapest tickets often still require 14-day advance purchase. To get tickets before the cheapest seats sell out, buy a month or two in advance.

Hope this article was useful :-)
