Free Birthday Coldstone Creamery

Coldstone Creamery now has a birthday club. You just go register and get free ice cream. And it is good ice cream too! I like the fact that you register all your kids on your account and then you just go to your account and print the coupon around your birthday (they say what day you can start). Go register and enjoy!

Ebates: Best Deal on The Internet

Since we are all doing more and more shopping online, there is a tool we all need: Ebates. When you shop online you start at the Ebates home site. Then you look up whatever store that is on there and click to the store. You will get a percentage of your purchase back in cash. It is that simple. Then they will pay you either by check or paypal (I believe there is a time delay or fee associated with a check) once a quarter. They only pay out once you hit $5 but it will wait forever for you to hit it. My first $5 took over a year (before I did a lot of online shopping). You can still use any online coupons, deals, etc so you don't loose out. Ebates is something I have been doing for a few years and I have gotten over $120. If you sign up now you will get $10 (and yes, I will get $10 too). Sign up and if it doesn't get filled in for you, use my email as a reference (

Free Phonics Books (downloads)

Progressive Phonics has some great Alphabet books (Alpbabetti Book Series) that are free to download. Each book focuses on a single letter. Then they have activity pages that coordinate with each book. These look great! I will be printing them up for my 2 1/2 year old to start him down the path to reading. They are warning that these will not stay free forever so walk, no run over and get them now! Separately, if you like these, you can download the first couple of books in each of their more advanced phonics series to get a feel before you buy.
