Chipotle: 3 Meals for the Price of 1

August 25, 2015
It's easy to get three burrito meals from Chipotle for the price of one.  What you want to do is order a bowl and ask for as many tortillas as you want "on the side" (those are free).  Then, make your own burrito by scooping out of the bowl and into the tortilla.  You can make a large meal this way and you'll have a lot left over - probably enough for two more meals.  Look at how much I had left after making a pretty good-sized DIY burrito:



I don't find that their tortillas keep well, so I go and buy a cheap pack of soft taco tortillas at the grocery store and use those to make my next two meals.  However, if a couple is going to Chipotle you could order two tortillas on the side and split the meal if you're agreeable on it's contents.  

There's an entire Hacking Chipotle chapter in Underground Savings that you might find useful if you liked this trick.

Van's Breakfast Products - All purchasers of Van's breakfast products between 1/1/2009 and 6/6/2015 are eligible to file a claim.  This lawsuit is due to Van's falsely claiming their product contains all-natural ingredients.  I believe you'll receive between $5 - $18.  No proof of purchase required.  Time to complete:  1 minute for Tier 1.

Say What? Cigarette Sales are Increasing!

August 9, 2015

For well over a decade, cigarette sales in the U.S. have been declining at a steady rate of around 3% per year. Despite the perpetual smoking decline, owning stock in tobacco companies has been a very rewarding experience. Due to the addictive nature of their product, tobacco companies have been able to steadily grow their profits by raising prices more than the corresponding drop in volume.  Moreover, cigarettes have a huge margin - they're extremely cheap to make.  

We all know that at some ...

4 Ways To Avoid Getting Ripped Off When Buying a Cell Phone

August 1, 2015
We just bought new cell phones this week, that ranks right up there with buying a new car on the things I hate to do list. They repeatedly tried to charge us for unnecessary things but I was having none of it.  Here are some of their scams to be on the lookout for:
  1. Tried selling me a tempered glass screen protector for $59.  Why would I need an expensive screen protector when the phone has Gorilla Glass. Watch this video from Corning showing how tough Gorilla Glass is.  When a lady brought in ...

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, ...

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...

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...
