Find thousands of coupons, promo codes and discounts. Plus get cash back savings with online rebates.
I’ve used this since the beginning of November and it’s fully replaced Retailmenot when searching for coupons (for now at least). It provides Coupons and cash back that changes amounts daily. Every 3 months they cut you a check or Paypal and I’ve already got my first check.
It seems like a no brainer, coupons and cash back, doing what you’re probably doing anyway, shopping online. So you might as well signup and try it. Hopefully it saves you some money and you get a little more back.
ps. Though a little intrusive (and I’ll probably uninstall it after the holidays) but there is a bookmarklet for Chrome where you don’t even need to visit Ebates.com 1st. You just go to your regular sites and they will automatically let you know about coupons and cash back availability.
So I was thinking this morning Amazon Prime offers a 30 day free trial. It’s November 25th so if you start it today you can have wonderful FREE 2 day shipping and access to Prime Instant Video during the holiday shopping time (gifts, groceries, anything). It’s easy to cancel, so you might as well use it!
I’ve had it for years and never looked back because of the FREE 2 day shipping alone and the $79 dollar price tag. Add in the movies as well and it pays for itself.
Amazon Prime trial, start it now.
Airmail (Mac App) - The Mac mail client I have been searching for. Use Gmail or Google Apps? This is for you. “Email the way you want it to be” is their tagline. Simple, fast, full Gmail feature access, offline access, quick replies, Dropbox integration, you name it, it does it. You can also use it with a laundry list of other email services, IMAP, etc. (But it really shines with Gmail)
For $1.99 you can’t beat it. Grab it now in the Mac App Store.
Visit their website for more info.
ps. Yes, they really took over where Sparrow left off. And I’ve never seen such a quick development process, lots of updates, really great stuff from this company.
This is the kind of 2 birds one stone (or maybe 3) product that I like. Aesop’s Moroccan Neroli Post-Shave Lotion not only moisturizes your face but it also smells amazing. Touting itself for use after shaving, it can also be used as a unisex daily facial moisturizer.
I’ve used it for the past month (and besides the hefty $49 price tag) it’s been a great product and seems like it will last. The cream is light and soaks in instantly. I’ve also noticed since the weather is getting colder sometimes you need to re-apply after first go, which is fairly normal.
With it’s calming sandalwood oil, witch hazel water and ginger root extract, This works great on irritated and sensitive skin. (and smells so good).
If you live near an Aesop store go grab some samples of it. I’ll also be giving my 2cents about their Purifying Facial Cream Cleanser and other products in the upcoming weeks. Grab that too.

I’ve been on the search for the perfect or even acceptable T-shirt for awhile. I’ve tried them all, in all colors, in all sizes and price.
What I wanted was a simple crew, heather or colored, that wasn’t too tight but fitted and didn’t flow around in the back and around the waist (I hate it so much). The Everlane Men’s Crew and their other colors seem to be just what I wanted (and are only $15-$18). I suggest you try them if you too don’t like baggy shirts that are un-even. Some people like that style, I can’t do it personally. They have an easy return policy so it’s worth trying it out.
I wear their size Small. I’m 5’11”
Everlane - $15
Where is the one place I go with no distractions? The shower. I love showering. I do most my thinking in the shower. What happens when I think of all this good stuff in the shower? I forget it as soon as I step out and get distracted again.
Cue AquaNotes, the waterproof notepad. I know it’s dorky, I know it’s weird but this waterproof notepad has saved me many times and keeps me sane. You could say that you should just zone out in the shower and not think of things, relax, but it’s inevetible that I will think of something. A to-do, a good idea, anything, stuff I gotta remember not to forget.
Grab some AquaNotes $8 (Amazon link)
Prismatic - Web/iOS app
The weight and the burden I feel when I see my RSS newsreader (recommended reader: Reeder) with a number like “675” these days is getting overwhelming. 20 tech blogs saying the same thing (which I read every version of) and after reading all of those skipping the other 70 blogs I’m subscribed to. Now you’d say “just subscribe to the ones you want or one of each.” (how dare you) But it’s not always that easy. So here’s where Prismatic steps in.
Download Prismatic on your phone or signup online, connect to a social network of your choice and pick interests. You now have a curated news feed of everything you (and your social connections) will (or should) like. Add some friends on Prismatic (or get more to join) and you’ve got even more new stories of things that people you like like and so on. I’ve been using it for a few weeks now and it’s become a really nice “at a glance” morning routine. Once you get started I suggest you try it a few days/weeks, add more interests, remove interests and sites to make it even better. It learns as you go and as you interact and like more stories.
I’ve recommended this app enough, it’s time to put it here. I even believed in this thing before it existed via their Kickstarter campaign.
Dark Sky is my favorite iPhone app for weather (especially living in NYC). Accurate within an hours time forecasts perfect for “Should I run to the train?” “Can I let the dog out?” and just impressing friends with the fact you can predict weather. It’s so impressive/amazing/incredible. Sometimes it’s so accurate it’s scary.
Dark Sky (App Store) $3.99 (worth it.)
