Free Driscoll's Berries

July 28, 2015
I don't talk much about using coupons on here, I don't find it very interesting, it's hard to scale up and I can't really add any value.  However, I recently learned about the Driscoll Consumer Advisory Panel and have been taking part in it all summer. Anyone can sign up for the Advisory Panel...you take a brief 2-3 minute survey and let Driscoll know your thoughts on the berries.  In return, they send you a coupon you can print twice.  You get a 50 cent coupon after your first four surveys, a 75 cent coupon after surveys 5-15 and a $1 coupon for each survey after that.

If you do much grocery shopping, you've probably noticed a lot of berries this summer going for less than $1 during specials. If you shop at a grocery store that gives you the full value of the coupon that means you can actually get paid to eat berries.  I like that.  

To get started go here and have the berry package with you when you start the survey.  You'll need the 16-digit code near the UPC code.  They will also ask you where you bought the berries and how much they cost.  After that, they want to know about flavor, feel, bruising, etc.

They restart the survey count each year so you'll start with a 50 cent coupon in 2016.

Even More Free Money From AmEx

July 15, 2015
Following on yesterday's post about using your AmEx credit cards at Newegg to get a free $10, someone figured out how to game this kindly donate to charity via Ticketmaster while simultaneously utilizing the AmEx promotion.  Go here and "purchase" $1 for the Historic Tennesse Theatre charity and use AmEx Express Checkout to pay.  You can do this for each of the credit cards showing in your online account.  If, by the time you read this, that charity is no longer accepting $1 donations (we sta...

More Free $$ From AmEx

July 15, 2015
Man I love American Express, almost every week they come up with a new way to hand me cold hard cash for doing nothing more than having a bunch of Amex credit cards.  This week, they're promoting "American Express Checkout" by giving you a $10 statement credit when you use your credit card at a variety of stores, the only lucrative one for me is Newegg.com. Newegg sells mostly electronic stuff but lucky for us they also sell a bunch of E-gift cards from places like Dominos, Home Depot and CVS...

How To Stay At Hilton Hotels for 70% Off

July 2, 2015
Forget some 5% AARP or AAA hotel discount.  If I'm actually opening my wallet to stay at a hotel, there's no way I'm paying anything close to $200+ a night for a hotel room.  One of my go-to methods for getting huge discounts on hotel rooms is using the HHonors AmEx Surpass credit card + buying $500 gift cards at a grocery store, loading the gift cards onto my Trget Redcard or Wlmart Bluebird card and then paying off my credit card thru their online bill pay option.  Like many of the best dea...

The Impact of Tesla's Gigafactory 1

June 29, 2015
As you may have heard, Elon Musk's Gigafactory 1 lithium-ion battery plant is being built in Northern Nevada and is expected to start producing batteries sometime next year.  What hasn't been widely reported is the absolutely astonishing amount of base metals this plant is going to use on an annual basis.  According to Frank Holmes, it's going to use so much metal, some analysts are questioning if there is enough metal being produced to meet demand:

Investing Thoughts with Suntrust

June 27, 2015
The good folks who work with Suntrust Bank recently interviewed me about investing and asked some interesting questions.  Here are a few of my thoughts, many of which reflect my investing strategy:

1) I read a study that showed the majority of Americans who don’t invest their money say it’s because they don’t think they can afford to. What are your thoughts on that—should everyone be able to invest, what’s some of the misinformation that leads people to think they can’t afford to i...

Free Hotels Rooms - Best Rate Guarantees

June 24, 2015
Pretty much all the hotel chains and online travel agencies (OTAs) have some type of best rate guarantee - this is where they will give you a lower rate, refund or free night if you find the exact same hotel room for a lower price on a website such as Priceline or Expedia.  Right now, my two favorite hotels for Best Rate Guarantees are Best Western and Choice. Best Western gives you a $100 voucher if you find a lower price and Choice gives you the first night of your stay free - even if it's ...
