Dear Valued BLISS Soaps Customer;
BLISS Soaps has unfortunately fallen victim to a fraudulent business
deal. Many local customers may recall a large soap, lotion, facemask
and eye cream order that we were working on as they came to visit the
store. The order was made, delivered and distributed to the Cruise-
line executives ahead of schedule. Emperors Essentials, the company
that commissioned BLISS Soaps to fulfill this contract fraudulently
reversed ALL of the payments that were made to us. After researching
the company, we discovered that the couple who own Emperors
Essentials; Robert Friend, Jr., and Shao Mei Wang operate 4 charities
in Gig Harbor, Washington. 1) National Association of Disabled Police
Officers. 2) American Veterans Coalition. 3) (Childrens) Cancer
Assistance Network. 4) Disabled Firefighters Foundation. All 4
charities are fictitious and an estimated $5,000,000.00 was raised for
the charities and around 2 cents per dollar was used as assistance. If
you hear of these in the future, DO NOT DONATE.
The devastating to BLISS Soaps came at such a time that we may not
recover the funds in time to maintain operations.
In an effort to make this a win-win situation for both of us, we are
offering this 4 day only Internet, call-in and walk-in special in an
attempt to earn pre holiday revenue.
All orders over $50.00 will be doubled and the next 5 future orders
over $50.00 will be given a $15.00 credit.
All orders received in the next 4 days will be filed and a VERY
special future offer will be offered to you in our Dec E-mail.
ALL orders place in the next 4 days EVEN orders under $50.00 will be
given the Special December offer.
To call in your orders, please call 1-206-322-SOAP 7 days 4-10 Pacific
Internet orders, please only order ½ of what you would like as we will
simply double the order received.
Thank, you for your past and continued patronage and hope to hear from
Phil & Chuck

I ordered the porcelain filigree ornament, which turned out to be very pretty and delicately patterned in real life. The photo quality was clear (albeit a bit darker than the original image), but the big thing was that it didn't crop the same as the onscreen tool pictured it. Mine is a head-and-shoulders close-up of two people, and it cropped the top of one person's head completely off, which is not how it showed onscreen. You'd think whoever was manning the machines would figure that a customer wouldn't want the subjects' heads to be lopped off and tweak it accordingly, but no.
This may not be such an issue for items like mugs or mouse pads where there's a larger printing area, but if you're doing a very small item like the ornaments, make sure to give yourself a generous margin on all sides. Still, since I got it for free and paid $2.99 shipping, I'm pretty satisfied with the result. If you've always wanted an ironic photo mug, here's your chance!
Also good online with promo code BRE1129H.

Well, whatever. MS Paint Frankenstein and wavy 3-D banner text aside, the offer stands: send YoCrunch an envelope stuffed with trick-or-treat candy wrappers (or, you know, any candy wrappers you happen to have lying around) and they'll send you a coupon for a free YoCrunch candy-topped yogurt. You know, for a healthier lifestyle. For your kids.
Think of the children!

Personally, I'm waiting for Highlights to go on sale. I wonder what Goofus and Gallant are up to...
Perhaps my burning questions will be answered on October 31, when anyone can stop by their local participating Taco Bell for a free Black Jack Taco. Doesn't look like a coupon is required, or even a costume, so you should definitely plan a stop on your trick-or-treating route.

- Click on the banner ad that appears at the top.
- Proceed to the giveaway page!
Hmm, maybe this link will work too... let's give it a whirl.

- Roasted pumpkin seeds
- Homemade pumpkin puree
- Recipes for milkshakes, casseroles, soups, and more
- Pickle that pumpkin rind
No wonder the pilgrims carved jack o' lanterns for Halloween! They're practically a cornucopia of good eatin' all on their own.
That grew desperate for customer orders.
With 30% coupons
And deals you won't poop on,
They cater directly to hoarders.
Good through Oct. 25, in-store or online with promo code BSA9683B. Thank you, I'll be here all week.
I tried this out myself to confirm it, and in case you're wondering, $15 is enough to get a hilarious photo mug, a touching porcelain photo ornament, a mini photo book with 14 double-sided pages, a dozen photo cards, or a photo mouse pad. The $15 is not good toward shipping, but I ordered one item and the shipping was $2.99, which I figured was reasonable for a delightful photo keepsake.
Knock someone else off your holiday list with a photo gift and never look back! Or dazzle your friends with an amazing photo card.
Judging from their list of past boxes, it looks like it's mainly tech gadgets and video game accessories, with the occasional Citizen watch and digital photo frame thrown in. If that sounds like your bag - er, box - and you're feeling lucky, give it a spin! Then tell us what you get in the comments.
Now to print out 20 copies and plan a route to all the B&Ns in the area...
I'm going to buy two boxes of Reese's Puffs cereal, take it with me to a weepy romantic drama, and spend the whole two hours loudly crunching my way through them. Nothing ruins a tender moment like the plink-plink of chocolately cereal balls skittering down the aisles.
Last time, as you may recall, resentful franchisees dragged their heels by claiming they'd already given away their allotment or pretending that the free chicken would be ready, ohhh, 20 minutes from now (while cheerfully serving paying customers their food). If you don't want to get caught in the crossfire this time, make sure to call ahead to your local store and find out if they're really offering free faux-grilled chicken.
I can't wait to see what mocking response-campaign Del Taco runs this time...

Shine Liquid Lipstick in Glam.
Sorry, Seattleites, the closest one to us is in Silverdale. Only you know whether it's worth a 17-mile drive to get a free mini lip gloss.
Recipe Lion has come to the rescue with a crockpot cookbook PDF, full of 33 recipes to warm up your kitchen! That chicken-and-rice-soup recipe sounds pretty good right now. Or, you know, 9 hours from now.
They've already got 8,000+ fans, so I'd say it's pretty much of a shoo-in that you'll get your free eyeshadow... unless they claim to be overwhelmed by demand or something. So get in line now!

I think I might need to create a new junk email account... mine is totally overrun with newsletters from offers like this - whenever I actually dare to sign in and shovel through the six-foot-deep crap in my inbox, that is.
Even if you're not a coffee drinker, though, fill up with a free 12-oz hot beverage at a participating 7-11 location through October 31. Coffee, cappucino, hot chocolate, or tea - there's got to be something that will appeal to you on a chilly fall morning... and bonus points if it comes in a screamin' brown monster cup.

Check out pics from last year's Glitter Sale and get pumped!
Of course, one of the biggest factors in me buying this camera was that mine came in pink, and this sale one only comes in boring silver. But you could always gussy it up with a pretty case and enjoy the color of green in your pocket instead.
You have until September 2010 to get your codes and cash in, so that should be enough time to eat three boxes of Raisin Bran, right? Or maybe not, since I've never managed to eat an entire bowl in my life, let alone three boxes. But maybe all that will change now.
- $10 off $50 with code BG7R1CKRXHGL
- 15% off your purchase with code ONBDAY15
Looks like a lot of it is unloading summer clearance stuff, but who knows, maybe you do need some tank tops and polo shirts. In which case Old Navy has you covered.

Normally this one costs more than $14 for just a one-year subscription, and I've found it's pretty full of good, tasty-sounding recipes that don't look fiendishly complex or call for ingredients you've never heard of. Or get a jump start on Xmas for that strapped-for-time chef on your list...
- Stock up on their signature collection fragrances with a buy-three-get-three-free special
- $6 Wallflowers
- $3 Room Sprays

- 2 for $12 Socks

It's already practically mid-October, so if you have a big holiday shopping list, now may be the time to start knocking out a few of those generic teacher or great-aunt gifts...
Friday, October 9, 2009
I'm sure you have nothing else to do with your Friday night, right? Unless you told someone you couldn't go out because you "had to wash your hair"...
I like hard-boiled eggs, and I think everyone has a basic constitutional right to eat eggs, so why not? I'll pledge that pledge.
Thursday, October 8, 2009
It's good through October 12, but you just know there will be another coupon out by then.
Dine-in only, one appetizer per table, so it's not exactly something to go out of your way for, but if you were planning on eating there anyway, these would be good words to know for today.

What? You have better things to do than stay up till midnight for a free coffee sample? Well, never fear, take the quiz and you'll still be entered into the Fairest Trade Prize drawing at the end of the month to receive 12 months of Green Mountain Coffee's Fair Trade Certified Coffees.
Looks like the offer is good for bacon, eggs, potatoes, and a cup of coffee, and it doesn't look like you need to print out a coupon or anything. Check your local store for details on the offer and the hours they're serving, though, as that often varies from location to location.
Tuesday, October 6, 2009
All right, let's move on to something else, shall we?
Monday, October 5, 2009
Either way, it's a nice treat for a (yawn) slow, uninteresting Monday at the office... not that any of us are having one of those.

BOGO large jar candles at Yankee Candles with this coupon, good through October 4. I know shipping tends to be horrid on these super-heavy glass jar candles, though, so it's probably better to get them in-store - plus the instant smelly gratification!
Good through October 8, so if you're feeling the chill, go and get your soup on! (Or if not, get your pasta salad on, I guess.)
Anyway, Peet's is trying to steal Starbucks' free-coffee thunder with this BOGO coupon good through October 11. And yes, if your phone is better than mine, you can save a tree and just flash them the coupon in-store to get the discount.
Normally I'm not one to pay attention to magazine ads, but I've been noticing these Garnier Fructis ads featuring women with lustrous, shiny, braided hair tsunamis, and it's very intriguing, given that we're headed into frizzy cold/humid season here in Seattle. Just something to think about...
I just poured some coffee on my lap, in fact, so obviously I like it so much that I want to douse myself in it. Off to Starbucks!

UPDATE: Borders is also offering free shipping with a minimum purchase of $10, through October 4. Use promo code BFS674STAN for standard shipping or BFS674BOX for shipping to P.O. boxes.
