What do you give the music lover who seems to have everything? How about concert tickets that will allow them to see whatever music they want for three days straight? What about tickets that are half price and no service fees? (They don’t need to know that part.))
What about a three day Bumbershoot pass for $99? The regular rate is $186 and that doesn’t even include the service fee.
The deal is supposed to be for BumberFans, so you may have to sign up to become one. But you’ll meed to act quick. The deal ends today, CyberMonday.
Oops. I forgot to mention that you need to enter the Promo Code: 322DG.
Sure, there are a lot of great deals out there today, the day known as Cyber Monday, but many of them involve paying for shipping or going to brick and mortar stores so you don’t have to pay for shipping. And even if you don’t have to pay for shipping, you still have to wait for shipping. Here’s a great one where there’s no packaging or shipping and you can use almost immediately.
Go to Restaurant.com, find the restaurant you like best on its list and buy a $25 gift certificate for just $3. Those gift certificates are usually a pretty good deal at $10, but they’re an amazing deal at $3. All you have to do is enter the code word CYBER at checkout.
But you’ll want to hurry. The deal is good today only.
It’s true. I’ll be at Couth Buzzard Books in Greenwood from 4 to 6 p.m. today (Saturday, Nov. 30) hanging out and selling and signing books as part of Small Business Saturday. The store is located at 8310 Greenwood Ave. North.
I’ll also be answering all of the cheap bastard questions you wanted to know the answers to, but were afraid to ask at past local readings.
One of the big questions: Do you have enough copies of the new edition of “The Cheap Bastard’s Guide to Seattle?” Yes, I do. In fact, I just received a shipment of 150 and I’ll have a couple of boxes with me today. So, if you’re looking to do a one-stop shop and buy books for all your friends and family in Seattle, I’m happy to oblige.
So, come on down and hang with the Cheap Bastard and learn about a great place to buy books, see author readings and attend free events all year long.
In case you missed it, the Cheap Bastard will be at Couth Buzzard Books in Greenwood Saturday from 4 to 6 p.m. and will have plenty of books for sale. In fact, he just got a shipment of 150 in, so he’s ready to meet all your gift giving needs for the entire holiday season.
Of course, that’s not the only reason to see the Bastard as part of Small Business Saturday at Couth Buzzard (8310 Greenwood Ave. N). No, you can also get the inside scoop on great deals including many that are in the book and a few that aren’t.
Ever wondered where to go for cheap eats? What about a good place to get a great cut? And what about how to get free tickets to movies during the Seattle International Film Festival?
The Cheap Bastard will be more than happy to fill you in, sell you a book and sign it…
So, stop on by from 4 to 6, Saturday at Couth Buzzard Books!
Are you tired of shopping yet? What about now? How about now? Yes, the Cheap Bastard knows that Black Friday isn’t until….well…Friday, but he’s pretty sure your feelings about shopping will have changed by Saturday. Not only will you be so over shopping by then…at least for a few hours, anyway…but you’ll probably be itching for a place to hang out and avoid the throngs at the malls.
So, why not take some time out between 4 to 6 pm and stop on by Couth Buzzard Books (8310 Greenwood Ave. N) where you can celebrate Small Business Saturday and chat with the Cheap Bastard about ways to save this holiday season and all year round? Instead of a full-fledged author reading, it will be an informal chance to meet the author, talk deals, ask the questions you would have been afraid to ask in a crowd and even buy the new edition of “The Cheap Bastard’s Guide to Seattle” and get it signed.
The visit may not only be a good chance to blow off steam from shopping, it may also be the perfect chance to buy all the gifts you need for your entire holiday list. After all, what better gift can you give to your favorite folks than a funny book that shows them how to save money on plays, movies, music, restaurants, haircuts, massages, museums and other stuff all year long?
And it’s just $16.95!
Heck, I’ll bet you’ll save that much when you get tickets from the Seattle Public Library to go to the Aquarium or the EMP for free. And you can find the details for that deal on page 232.
Although the CB considers himself a liberal, this isn’t going to be a post decrying the horrors of working on Thanksgiving. In fact, I come at it from a completely different direction because my parents owned a small pharmacy in North Fort Myers, Florida that stayed open on Thanksgiving and Christmas. I enjoyed working those short days not only because it was fun and we kids had the run of the store, but also because we understood we were providing a service to people who unexpectedly needed medicine or diapers on a day when other stores were closed.
Of course, I admit I’m not really sure what pressing service having JC Penney or some other retailer open on Thanksgiving Day actually provides, but if they want to do that, it’s up to them. If there’s a really great deal, I might show up or I might not.

The CB has written this one over and over in his head because, well, not everyone knows what that SIFF is the abbreviation for the Seattle International Film Festival and he doesn’t want people thinking he’s talking about getting a discount on contracting a social disease. Keep your mind out of the gutter, people!
Instead, the CB wants to tell you about a great SIFF deal that just crossed his desk–a sale on tickets and passes to next year’s film festival with big discounts.
“How big?” you ask. Read more…
