I saw a great deal on SlickDeals today that I wanted to pass along. Click the link to find out more details, but basically, you can get a $37 credit in your Overstock.com shopping cart. By the way, once you click through to SlickDeals and find out what you need to do, the Overstock.com link you need to click is in the top right corner on the Woot site.
It apparently works for just one item, so try to find one item at $37.01 or more. Oh, and in the SlickDeals forum, some people are saying the code won’t work on media items.
Remember, it’s only a deal if you actually need the item!
I’ve been trying to find something I could use, but I’ve had a hard time so far. I’ve looked into bedding, furniture, baby things, clothing…but nothing is sticking out yet. Let me know if you find something good on the site!
UPDATE: I ended up buying Shane some brown dress shoes. I thought maybe I could combine my Ebates account with this deal, but it wouldn’t work (it’s either one deal or the other, and in this case, the Woot deal is the best).
I also took a screenshot of our confirmation page (Hit your ‘prtscreen” key then open Paint, go to Edit and click ‘paste’ and save it as a jpg) so I could have a record of it being $5.94 with shipping.
Here are some links that caught my attention this week.
PaidTwice has a fantastic list of ways to stay in debt forever. When you read her list, you might think, “That’s so obvious–I would never do that!” But people do those things every day. I’ve been guilty of several of these before I started to get a clue.
When I started my blog last September, I wanted a venue to write about whatever I wanted, figure out how to save money, help others save, and have a fun hobby. I didn’t expect my blog to earn money. It took awhile, but thanks to ads and affiliate links, I’m starting to earn a nice trickle of funds. Mrs. Micah has a great post for those of you who either have a blog already or are thinking about starting one with the hopes of maybe making some cash.
