Save your life for under $20: Road ID August 16, 2010

Road IDI don’t know about you, but over the years I’ve managed to tuck my driver’s license into every sports bra I own in an effort to be safe when biking, running, and walking outdoors. Well, here’s an even better solution that just may save your life.

Road ID makes just that — ID that you can wear on your body while out on the road. Their products range from the Wrist ID Sport (pictured in this post), for just $19.99, to a band for your ankle, a pouch to put on your shoe, or even a simple ID that fits on your shoe laces. You can print up to 6 lines of text on the ID, and you can always order a replacement ID to fit on your strap if you ever move or need to change emergency contact info.

Right now, you can SAVE $1 OFF your order when you enter code TAF1238 at checkout. This brings the Wrist ID Sport, shipping and all, to just $20.48 (for an order shipping to Dallas).

If you know an athlete who doesn’t yet have one of these, I’d urge you to pass this deal along. I received the Wrist ID Sport as a Christmas gift from my in-laws, and it brings me great peace of mind. It even encourages me. The last line of text on my band says, “STRONG COURAGEOUS MOMMY.” If that doesn’t inspire you, I’m not sure what will!

Feel clueless as to what you’d put on your Road ID? Here’s what is on mine, to give you an idea:

  • MY NAME / YEAR OF BIRTH (Their site said having your year of birth is helpful for medical personnel.)
  • CITY, TX  USA (Just in case I am ever exercising on vacation – or in a sporting event – in another country.)
  • HOME 222-222-2222
  • HUSBAND 333-333-3333 (It literally just says “husband” instead of his name, and this is his cell number.)
  • SISTER 444-444-4444 (It literally just says “sister” instead of her name, and this is her cell number.)
  • STRONG, COURAGEOUS MOMMY (This helps me to keep going when I want to quit.)

Thanks, RetailMeNot, for the code!

(This is a re-post from April. I thought it was worthy of a re-post after vacationing with athletic friends this past weekend and discovering they hadn’t yet heard of Road ID, an invaluable piece of safety gear in my mind!)

 

EXPIRED: $2.99/yr Weight Watchers magazine subscription July 6, 2010

UPDATE: As of 10:30am CST 7/6/10, this code expired… Thanks to Kelly for letting me know!

Welcome back from our long weekend! I hope you enjoyed all of the holiday foods at those 4th of July parties. Now it is back to reality… So I went for a run last night for the first time in a week… If you’re like me, always searching for healthy recipes for our family, then you’ll appreciate this AMAZING deal on Weight Watchers Magazine!

You could subscribe via the Weight Watchers website for $14.95, or you can hop over to DiscountMags and score a one-year subscription to Weight Watchers Magazine for just $2.99 when you enter code 6351! Better yet, order up to three years at this price!

No, you don’t need to be a Weight Watchers member or even aspiring member to get a lot out of this magazine! I always peruse my mom’s copy when we visit her, and am constantly pulling articles (fitness, fashion, recipes, etc.)  from it. At this price, I might as well order a subscription for myself!
