Upcoming Tuesdays Travels + plea to readers!

I know that tomorrow's Tuesdays Travels destination will be New York City. I am currently focusing on destinations within the United States, but will include international destination soon! I have picked out a few other locations I would like to do coming up, and would like your input on these locations. Are you a local in one of these places? Or have you visited them? What are the best deals for any of these cities? What are the Must see locations in your city? Are there free events or great deals I should mentions in the city? PLEASE email me with your tips! I really cannot do this well without your input! My email is  

Please also let me know if there is a destination you want me to start researching for a future Tuesdays Travels post.  Here are the ones I am planning for the next few weeks (send any insider info you have):
  • Omaha (I know a lot about this one but still need more locals opinions and insights!)
  • Salt Lake City (again, I know a lot about this one, but have not lived there in years so I need local's opinions to keep me up to date!)
  • Disneyland (NOT DisneyWorld)
  • Colorado Springs
  • San Diego
  • Spokane, Washington (Help me out friends in Spokane-I only lived there 1 year and spent like 5 months of that on bed rest)
  • Hawaii (I have as yet to decide whether to seperate this out by island...)
Let's start with those and go from there-can I quickly mention that I know NOTHING about the Southern States as I have not been to any (except Florida) since I was quite young. If you live in or know anything about great Southern destinations, please email me.

If you haven't done one of those 3 things yet, so it now. Today's download will make my kids SOOO happy.

  • Betty Crocker Brownie Mix 10/$10
  • Betty Crocker Seasoned Mashed or Specialty Potatoes 10/$10

Mother's Day sales

I want to throw out there that just about every store is having Mother's Day deals this week (since the big day is next Sunday, May 9). That means you are going to find a lot of sales geared to women and things they tend to like. So, if you find a particularly good deal, it mightbe a chance to stock up on some gifts for throughout the year. You can look now for moms birthday, for your friend's, for your anniversary, or for Christmas. My big thing this year is to stock up on things I will need when they are on sale. So, keep an eye out for the great deals out there for women this week and if you find one, please share it by commenting on this post, on the wall of the Beckeesdeals page on Facebook, or by sending me an email at .


Ulta coupon/sales

Ulta has a coupon currently where you can get $3.50 off any purchase of $10 or more. There appear to be restrictions on what you can use it on. It says right on it that "ALL televised items are excluded from all coupon offers."  This coupon is good only 5/2-5/9 (of 2010).

However, I was excited about this as they have some good deals right now, like a Wigo flat Iron for $9.95 (you would have to find a filler item to bring your total up to $10).

This coupon is available in store or online. In store means you pay no shipping, but online menas you will pay shipping ($5.95), but you get 3 free samples with your order. So, you can choose how you want to use it. I believe you can print te coupon from their site here to use in store, or use coupon code 47827 at check out to use online.

Let me know if you get any great deals from this one!

Report on Free Comic Book Day-it rocked!

When I first read about Free Comic Book Day, I thought it would be nice to stop in the comic book store and grab a free comic book for each kid. When I read the ad in the Omaha World Herald for Krypton Comics last week, I realized it might be bigger than I anticipated. Not only were they giving away free comic books, but from 10am-6pm Ray Park (aka Darth Maul) would be there and Cynthia Martin and other local comic book artists were going to be there as well.

Wes was on call Saturday so I was alone with 4 kids for Free Comic Book Day, and to be frank, I did not want to fight the crowds I was sure Darth Maul would bring. But I also did not want to miss out on the free comic books. I needed to stop at the grocery store anyway and I knew Dragon's Lair was near a Bag N Save, so I packed up the kids and we headed out to Dragon's Lair.

I anticipated walking in grabbing whatever 1 cheap comic book they were handing out and leaving with 4 happy kids. No sir! We walked in and found out that each customer could take 10, yes 10 free comic books. There was a large display case up front as well as 6-8 large boxes in the back of older comic books you could choose from. So, with myself and my 4 kids, we could have left with 50 FREE comic books.

Never have I seen so many giddy adult males in one room, NEVER! There was quite a crowd of them around the boxes in back so the kids and I began at the front display. We picked what we wanted. Then headed back to the crowd to see what else we could get. The boxes were fun because every once in a while you would see/hear an overjoyed grown man exclaim "Yes! This completes my collection" then giggle like a 12-year-old girl.

After a while waiting at the boxes we finally pushed our way to where we could look at them. We picked out a few more comic books we wanted, then headed up front to check out (they had to check to make sure we had only free ones). Up front they had free rings and figurines. Each person could have 2 rings and 1 figurine (I have no clue who the figurine was-I have still not yet looked).

Now, my kids are evidently quite picky about comic books and would only take the ones they really wanted, so we did not leave with 50 Comic Books, but we did leave with about 35, plus 10 rings, 5 figurines, and 4 VERY happy and excited kids!

Now, initially I worried about these comic book stores that people like me would just come in and bleed them dry with just freebies, but standing in the line to check out with our free comic books, all my worry left! The 3 men preceeding us in line each spent well over $100, so I think they were still turing a prety good profit!

Did any of you go to Free Comic Book Day? Did anyone locally meet Darth Maul?! If you did go, let me know what you thought. If you did not go, mark your calendars for next year for the first Saturday in May! I will be there!!

Take sureys and earn money...two companies that work for me

Lots of people ask me if it is worth it to join the survey compaies online. Do they really pay out? Do you really earn anything? Let me tell you that I have tried a lot of survey companies to earn money, and some of them I like, some I do not. I want to tell you about 2 companies I like and recommend trying out! But before I tell you about them, I want to make sure you know about how they work.

Generally when you join a survey company, they have you fill out some sort of questionaire about yourself that they will use to match you up with their surveys. Then you will start getting emails from them with links to surveys to answer. You will start each survey by answering a few basic questions then they will determine whether you really qualify for that survey and whether they still need more responses from people. The sooner you answer the surveys, the better chance you have of being able to complete the survey. And the topic vary widely.

So, the 2 survey companies I really like recently are:
  • Pinecone Research: I love Pinecone Research because every time I successfully complete a survey, like clockwork I get a $3 check in the mail. And they just got even better as far as I am concerned because now you can sign up to have the money directly put into your Pay Pal account! PLEASE NOTE: You may only have ONE account per household signed up for this site or they will invalidate all accounts from the same household!! If you would like to sign up for and try out Pinecone Research, please here.
  • MindField Online: I like Mindfield because the amount you can earn for each survey varies and is often $1-$6 per survey. There is a cash out miniumu of $5, and you can just cash out whenever you want after you have hit that minimum.  They also have a referral program that gives you $1 per referral. So, obviously, I would love for you to sign up under my referral here then get your own referral link and refer your friends!
Do you have any online survey panels you participate in and particularly like? Plese let me know so I can pass on the information!
