Hot Buy: The Valley of Amazement by Amy Tan (Kindle)


I love love Amy Tan – simply love her and I have read most of her novels. I had my eyes on The Valley of Amazement for a while and have it on my list from the local library. I was number 12. Yep.

As I was looking at the hold, I clicked on the BUY button and clicked through to Amazon. Low and behold it was listed for $1.99 for the Kindle version. That is an awesome price when it’s listed normally at $16.99. I went ahead and bought it.

Here’s the weird thing – my receipt is showing a zero total. I have no idea what the PROMOTION is since I know I have no credit in my account. $1.99 is a great deal but free is always better. :)

Let me know if you’re able to duplicate the deal.


gardenias for my mother in law

i love my mother in law; she’s such a wonderful person and she helps us so much. so when i bought the BIG BUNDLE, there was a $20 gift certificate to 1800flowers.com.

this weekend, 1800flowers.com ran a promotion where you get free UPS shipping for buying certain flowers and plants. james and i got a little something for her at a awesome deal!


gardenia with ceramic planter

we bought this gardenia plant with a ceramic planter for her. i didn’t want flowers because they’ll die after a couple of days. i figure with a plant, at least she can water it and it can grow, therefore lasts longer!  :)

cost:                   $34.99

shipping:          $12.99

free shipping: -$14.99

gift cert:             -$20

tax:                      $2.89

the total was    $15.88

we also went through bing.com with a cashback of 20%. i received an email from bing that my CB is $7, thereby making this only $8.88!! how cool is that? what a slickdeal huh?


possibly 3 free shutterfly photobooks

here are some great shutterfly photobooks deals – i received  3 8×8 hardcover photobooks free! they expire on 11/5.

here’s how:

1) facebook – if you have a facebook account, simply installed the family tree application. you can add family members or click cancel at the bottom once it’s installed. then click on the link above again and you should see a free shutterfly code.

2) if you have a cozi account (or created one before october 6th), simply login to your account and there’s a link at the top for a free shutterfly photobook.

3) to go tripadvisor, submit a review of your recent trip. once your review is posted (takes about 2 days), you’ll get an email that it posted along with a free shutterfly photobook code.

with so many books to make, you’ll sure be busy.  shipping on each free book is about $8. or if your order is over $30, use code SHIP30 for free shipping.
