RetailMeNot.com, a site by the guys who did BugMeNot (the thing that let you skip registrations for sites).

Apparently this one lists coupon codes, as well as success rates for codes. Pretty spiffy.

For example: http://www.retailmenot.com/view/victoriassecret.com

They've got amazon, buy.com, and a ton of other places.

o.O someone noted that fandango has a $1 service charge anyways, so it's kinda pointless? I don't know.

And in other news, a law is making its way through the system to protect journalists, which includes bloggers who make their living blogging (or earn some sort of monetary gain?): http://www.theregister.com/2007/08/07/us_bloggers_journalist-shield/

Coldstone coupons:
$1 off any ice cream purchase.
$3 off any signature cake.

And a very cute, slightly addictive game from the lovely Orisinal site:
(Current high score of 27,820,730. Which is not actually that much, if you consider the fact that each bird you hit doubles your score at that point.)

The timberland one is especially useful, and I really want to pick up this bag, 'cause my current one has had resewing added to it on both sides now, and the metal clips on the sides have worn off more than halfway. I've added metal putty patch crap, along with electrical tape, to halt the grinding away for now, but it'll break eventually. I just don't know when.

And that coupon drops the final price down to 'bout $45, from $70. Which is awesome. Stupid $2~ tax. Rawr, you.


I've been pondering a possible way to make money. You know how we have 'bout 2-5K credit lines on our credit cards? If you could somehow turn this into real money, then transfer it over to ingdirect for a while (I'm under the impression that interest accrues daily..? Someone correct me if I'm wrong.), or use it to buy some more active stock, like apple or google and let it sit for a month... then use it to pay off the credit cards...

Or, maybe, if someone will loan me $100,000 to invest in apple... :D Given the fact that it's december, with iPods, I think it'll go up, maybe at least 8%? (random number, don't quote me on that. But I've had a 67% increase over 'bout 8-10 months, giving me 1000, from the initial 600 I invested, purchased twice over that time period.) And, you know, 8% is like, 8,000. :D Which would be enough to pay the rent for a year.

"Mmm, hi, bank person, wanna lend me 100K for a month? No, I'm just a student, and I don't really have a job, or any way to pay you back... so erm.. ^^;; please?"

"free shipping on $30 or more" at Dispair.com.

"Disaffected college students" appears on every single page, methinks.

The better ones that I'd actually get, but don't really want to spend the money on:
Cluelessness - There are no stupid questions, but there are a lot of inquisitive idiots.
Idiocy - Never underestimate the power of stupid people in large groups.
Power - Power Corrupts. Absolute Power Corrupts Absolutely. but it tocks Absolutely, too.
Individuality - Always remember that you are unique. Just like everyone else.
Loneliness - If you find yourself struggling with loneliness, you're not alone. And yet you are alone. So very alone.
Pessimism - Every dark cloud has a silver lining, but lightning kills hundred of people each year who are trying to find it.
Strife - As long as we have each other, we'll never run out of problems.
Dare to Slack - When birds fly in the right formation, they need only exert half the effort. Even in nature, teamwork results in collective laziness.
Planning - Much work remains to be done before we can announce our total failure to make any progress.
Indifference - It takes 43 muscles to frown and 17 to smile, but it doesn't take any to just sit there with a dumb look on your face. (It notes, "Disaffected college students. For real this time")
Mediocrity - It takes a lot less time and most people won't notice the idfference until it's too late.
Procrastination - Hard work often pays off after time, but laziness always pays off now.
Leaders - Leaders are like eagles. We don't have either of them here.
Motivation - If a pretty poster and a cute saying are all it takes to motivate you, you probably have a very easy job. The kind robots will be doing soon.
Persistence - It's Over, Man. Let Her Go.
