Happy birthday to me!
I forgot to mention the good news: J.D. over at Get Rich Slowly mentioned my "emergency fund" piece on his Sunday round-up. It's creating quite a bit of traffic flow as an awful lot of contention).
Between that and my guest post on MSN's Smart Spending, I think I may get spoiled by all this attention!
So thank you to both for the opportunity to drive some traffic to my site. And welcome to all Smart-Spending and Get-Rich-Slowly fans. I hope you'll take a look around. Be sure to read yesterday's "Martha Stewart of frugality? Not me" post all the way to the end.
I'm giving away a $10 gift card to the store of your choice if you write the best random-thought-pattern rant, ala Gilmore Girls.
And to all readers, I'm always open to suggestions if there are particular issues you wish I'd address. I am sure I won't get writer's for awhile, but if you feel like I've omitted something important I'd love some feedback.
By the way, I won't be posting or probably even moderating most of tomorrow. So if my usual-speedy reply is slow in coming, it's because it's my 30th birthday and I'm out gallavanting downtown and consuming large quantities of bad-for-me desserts!
And so, in that spirit, I thought I'd talk about all the cool stuff you can get on your birthday:
- Red Robin's eClub: Emailed free burger coupon (though you need to be careful who you go with, since part of its claim to fame is humiliating birthday folks by singing waiters)
- Cold Stone Creamery's Birthday Club: Emailed free Like-it-sized ice cream with two mix-ins.
- GB online (Gordon Biersch): Free entree with the purchase of another. (For joining the club you also get a coupon for a free appetizer w/ purchase of entree.)
- DSW rewards club: $5 off any purchase of $19.95 or more
Also, many spas will offer you a discount massage during your birthday month. So if you are desperately stressed, consider that!
Since that's about the extent of my knowledge, luckily we have Freebies for Mom who did an entire post about these handy-dandy benefits! Read up. I know I will (I have four months before Tim's birthday).
