Since we’ve been talking about travel anyway, I figured it was worth mentioning that Amazon is currently offering a number of Kindle editions of Lonely Planet travel books for absolutely nothing, nada, zilch, zip, zero.
The Mix includes:
These are just a few of the travel books available for free on Kindle Edition only. If you’re planning on traveling, you may want to check out the list fast because prices can change without notice.
Thanks to Frugal Living Northwest.
The store may have been empty when I stopped by in the morning, but that wasn’t the case when we stopped by later in the day, as you can see.
In case you missed my post earlier this week, Green Lake Village is having a grand opening at 11 today (9/20) and the frozen yogurt store is celebrating with a week’s worth of deals starting with 8 ounces of free yogurt today from 11 to 1 p.m.
Other retailers are supposed to be having grand opening deals during that time as well, but I couldn’t find a list, so you’ll just have to go and check them out yourself.
I put on an old newspaper pirate hat that I made last year, an eye patch and a hook, walked into the Krispy Kreme on Aurora Avenue in Seattle and said “Aaarrrrggggghhhhh!” and you know what I got?
I mean, besides laughed at?
I got this (and no, the box isn’t empty)!
Sure, you say to yourself, I could get a dozen free glazed donuts today if only I dressed like a pirate and visited a Krispy Kreme, but who has time to assemble all the accoutrements necessary to do so?
Believe it or not, you do.
All you have to do is wear three approved pieces of pirate gear and you’re in. And this year, Krispy Kreme has helpfully provided a way for you to print out and make at least three on its web site. So, now you can make your own eye patch, sport your own pirate flag, create your own hand with a hook and even print out your very own parrot for your shoulder.
Take your time, the promotion goes all day. Or, if you want, you can just stop in, talk like a pirate and get a single free one.
Alert reader and family friend Julie Lyss sent this picture listing some cool deals coming up next week at the newly-opened Menchies at Greenlake Village.
In case you can’t see the photo, here’s the rundown:
Saturday 9/20–Free 8 ounce cup of yogurt from 11 am – 1 pm (limit one per guest), free t-shirts (to first 25 guests at 11 am), free t-shirts, balloon artist.
Sunday 9/21– Free plushie doll (for first 25 guests), free color-in t-shirt (while supplies last), free face painting at 1 p.m.
Monday 9/22–Fill up your cup for just $1 during yumm hour from 5 to 6 pm.
Tuesday 9/23–Kids eat free from 2 to 4 pm. One cup per child up to 10 ounces free for kids 10 and under.
Wednesday 9/24–Half off lunchtime yumm from 11 am–1 pm.
Thursday 9/25–Free dodge balls to the first 25 guests at 3 pm.
Friday 9/26–Celebrate date night with a buy one, get one free deal from 8 pm to close. Oddly enough, it’s limited to one per guest. How do you limit a bogo to one per person if the deal requires you to buy two of something?
The store is located at 424 NE 71st Street in Seattle.
Okay, this notification may come a little late to do you much good today, but now through Sept. 29th, participating Mickey D’s restaurants are offering a free small coffee to all comers until 11 a.m., no purchase necessary.
Is this a good thing?
Who knows? Who cares? Hey, it’s free.
And the coffee makes a good base for the mocha I make with hot chocolate mix……
