Free E-Book: Samuel Pepys Diary

Much to my surprise, I just discovered that Amazon is selling Samuel Pepys' complete diary in ebook form -- for free!

Literary types know Pepys as the man who chronicled English life for many years...often in a very funny way. Here's your chance to read him -- for no cost. And if you don't  own a Kindle, no worries -- I don't, either. Amazon will show you how to install an app that they call the 'Kindle for PC.' That's no cost, either.

It'll be good reading for these cold winter nights.

Mega Swag Bucks Day - Today!

Yes folks, it is once again Friday...and in SwagbucksLand, that means mega bucks. Literally. Instead of one or two codes a day, there will often be five or six!

I've mentioned the Swagbucks program before -- but it really is something you should consider joining. Do just the regular searches you normally make during a day -- and you can easily earn your way toward 450 points -- the amount it takes for a $5 Amazon gift card. I don't do much beyond searches and inputting the daily codes, and I can easily earn $10 or more in gift cards a month.

Couldn't you find something useful to do with $10 on Amazon monthly? (They have many other gift and reward cards, too.)

Here's what you do. Click on the 'swidget...' that weird-looking numbers thing on the right of this blog. You can sign up for an account, and earn 30 bonus points in the process. (You'll also give me a little bit of reward points, too...thank you in advance.) You get 50 bonus points on your birthday -- and as mentioned, you can earn all sorts of points easily during the normal course of your online time.

The nice part about this program: they don't share your name and contact info. They don't put irritating 'cookies' or other intrusive items on your stuff. And they offer plenty of freebies, including points when you sign up for Groupons, get auto quotes and other such goodies.

Try it. You'll honestly like it.

Martha Stewart Living -- for Free

A free year's subscription to Martha Stewart Living?

yes...if you complete a short survey or any other of a few easy tasks. I was really skeptical of this offer from my last two years of MSL have indeed been free, thanks to them!

Go here...and fast. These offers never hang around long.

Money Saving Mom Has a New Book - Read It Free!

Eighty different chances to win a copy of MoneySaving Mom's new book!

I've been reading MSM for years. She has many links to coupons, free products and practical advice for living a more productive, content life. 

Go to the link above, and click -- most of these end this week, so don't delay.

And you can see the book here at the Amazon site. If it's anything like her down-home advice, it's terrific.

BOGO Juice

Fresh, cold juice -- doesn't that sound refreshing, after all the holiday cookies and candy you've chowed down?

For a limited time -- first 50,000 customers only -- you can get a Buy One Get One Free coupon for Old Orchard juice, via their Facebook page. Go here -- give them a 'Like,' and don't delay. I'm guessing these are already starting to get low.

Old Orchard is located not far from where I grew up, north of Grand Rapids, MI. Their products are great -- and a nice reminder of home. 

(Thanks, Moneysaving Mom, for mentioning it!)
