  1. Thanks for the mention – have a great weekend counting entries.

  2. 2. This is why I signed up with ING Direct

    enjoyed “Threats as a Negotiation Strategy” !

    thanks and have a great weekend

    just curious on what your strategy is for buying a PS3 slim for your family at the best available price. Which websites rss feeds are you following? I usually use seamonkey web browser’s bookmark properties to watch the page and notify me when the page changes. If you do not know seamonkey is nothing but firefox integrated with a bunch of other tools.

  4. aerosmith, for me, I just keep an eye out at the major retailers. I think the PS3 price is fixed (via Sony) and most retailers are required to follow. RCSS though is having a tax free day today and tomororrow, so it may be a way to save the tax.

  5. Thanks for the link FT! Have a great weekend!

    Thanks for the heads up on some weekend giveaways..and how could you hook me up with some link love on your weekend reading?

    Thanks again

  10. As always, the weekly links good like some great articles. It’s great how you freely link to other helpful articles. Many people would want some kind of incentive in exchange for this.

    Aerosmith – Staples often has coupons (e.g. $20 of $150 which often can be stacked so you could get $40 off $300) or even $30 off $300. Some can only be used online or by phone, while others can also be used in the store itself.

    I have only 1 $20 off $150 right now. Contact MDJ if you want it.
