Remember back in the day when we’d make mixtapes of our favorite tunes? You knew you were at the top of the totem pole when a friend made a mixtape for YOU.  As a tribute to one of the favorite rock bands of the 80s/early 90s, SPIN magazine has put together a “mixtape” you can download of 12 artists covering Bad Religion’s popular tunes — for FREE!

FREE Phish album download: Live Bait Vol. 01 August 25, 2010

One of the things I love about the Internet is finding FREE music downloads. What a great way to try out music that is new to me, especially when it is a band or genre I’ve been wanting to try out anyhow!

Download Phish’s album, Live Bait Vol. 01, for FREE by clicking here. Never heard of Phish? You’re not alone; they’re not often played on main stream radio and they rely on an extremely loyal fan base! Phish (pronounced “fish”) encompasses a wide variety of genres including “rock, jazz, progressive rock, psychedelic rock, hard rock, funk, folk, bluegrass, reggae, country, blues, avant garde, and classical” — say THAT three times fast!  In other words, they’re eclectic and will keep you on your toes.

Note that you’ll need to create a log in for LivePhish (the site that opens) and it will look like a normal “check out” process as if you were buying the album, but the entire time the total price will be $0.00. No need to enter any personal info other than email address!

33% OFF at Borders/Waldenbooks = BOB Books for $11.38 May 27, 2010

Summer is here! Time to swim, play, splash, and READ! So, my 4.5-year-old came home from preschool last week and announced he wanted to learn how to read. Hallelujah! Based on recommendations from friends who are teachers (and parents), I investigated the BOB Books. My first stop? Amazon, of course. They were $11.38 for a set there.  But I needed them RIGHT AWAY. The solution? This deal!

Here’s a printable coupon for 33% OFF the list price of one item at Borders or Waldenbooks! For this must-have beginning readers book set, it brought the original price of $16.99 down to $11.38 — matching Amazon’s price and allowing my soon-to-be-reader to have them NOW!

Chances are, if you’re reading this post, you’re already beyond the BOB Books yourself… So use this deal for something for you! If you’d rather shop online, use code BGA7757M. (Just FYI, you’ll need to be a Borders Rewards member for this deal, but that’s free & easy to set up if you’re not one already.)

Find a Borders or Waldenbooks near you.

And, I’m excited to report he’s already read books 1 & 2 in set 1 of the BOB Books. This is awesome!
