Hi guys. Remember how last week I said to ignore any and all emails that contain links asking for your credit cards?
That's still a good idea.
But remember my ending line, where I said "...Unless it's a LivingSocial Deal. Those things rock my world." ??
Well, today's LivingSocial deal rocked my world so much, I would have bought it 50 times if they hadn't set a 1-per-person limit. Maybe you've heard of it already?
For $10 you can get a $20 Amazon Gift Certificate.
In case you are wondering what LivingSocial is, it's a lot like Groupon. They have a new deal every day, and it expires in a day. So that Amazon card? You only have until tomorrow morning to purchase that.
But you don't have to use it in the next day.
I usually purchase the half-off local restaurant deals. For $15, I regularly get $30 to spend at all sorts of cool restaurants. We've tried an Ethiopian restaurant, an Italian restaurant, an Indian Food restaurant, etc.
You usually have 6 months to use your deal. Sometimes there are other limits, but that's pretty standard, at least for the restaurant deals.
It makes date night pretty darn affordable. Which, when you're married, becomes the biggest turn-on.
(At least for Kurt.)
This Amazon giftcard, though? Does not expire. I looked- it's in the fine print. Who knew fine print could be so exciting?
So you could save this for Christmas time- 5 years from now. Or use it to buy a few trashy romance novels. Or a textbook.
Or heck, put it towards a Kindle.
Or just sit there, wondering if this is spam. After all, there was that whole free-movie-ticket-incident...
(come on guys. You know this is me.)
So why am I telling you about this? I have to be getting something out of it.
Well, I love you all. And I know how to share. And I am not being asked to write this post, or sponsored in any way.
Except...well, if three of you do buy this gift, and you use this link? I get mine free.
It's only $10. So if you don't, I won't be all that disappointed.
(But if you do I'll love you forever.)
And once you buy your deal? They'll give you a link. And if three of your friends click through that on facebook or twitter or anywhere you put it, and they buy it too? You will get your deal for free.
It's like the coolest pyramid scheme ever.
But if you aren't into sharing, you can also just enjoy the fantastic deal without sharing it. No one will know. Except God.
Also, my blogging has been kind of...slow lately.
And this is kind of like a kick in the butt. Maybe tomorrow I'll even draw a picture.
So there you go. Full disclosure.
Now if you'll excuse me, I'm going to go check out Amazon. I have some money to spend.
