Mother's Day Happiness....
With mother’s day around the corner, many are probably wondering what to get. Well, I could only offer some idea’s, but before we come to that let's tap into mother’s day, motherhood and the maternal bonds mothers influence on society. I'm truly grateful for mines and all my adopted and inherited moms. This is a great opportunity to let these mothers know just how special they are, and just how much you appreciate them and their sacrifices. So, when thinking of that special gift try and pick something that expresses that appreciation.
Now, great news just about every one of our affiliates got something great to offer those very special mothers out there. The goal is finding that special gift that she will truly enjoy and appreciate. Now, you can always give her a gift card to her favorite store or restaurant etc, that would be easy if you are terrible at guessing what moms like. There's always flowers or plants from ProFlowers, chocolate from Godiva, jewelry from Pandora or cashmere slippers for moms feet. You could also treat moms to a Concert or Broadway Play. Now there are also non-traditional gifts that are just as good like Amazon Prime, tons of benefits that are worth checking she may benefit and enjoy. “This Mother’s Day, show the strongest woman you know where her strength comes from”, with Ancestry.com. She would love that, trace the family's history and follow the story to its early beginnings. This would make for a legendary mother’s day.
Now, you can always take mom out for dinner. Zagat is a great resource for finding top-rated restaurants in your area, but book early so you don't miss out on your dining choice. There are still many choices to discover, we encourage you to visit our affiliates page. We know you have many choices to shop and surf, but we hope you appreciate and find our page useful...Whatever your plans or choices are even if its a combination of things mentioned, show that special lady how much she means to you and tell her how much you appreciate her and love her. The Weekly Deals wish all mothers a wonderful mother’s day.
If you love music and like to rock out every chance you get, well, I have something you music lovers would truly enjoy!

You can rock out at home, work or in your vehicle, it makes the ride home or out on that road trip that much more awesome, for sure right! I got two sites for you, which both got apps for download in google play store. They are available to Apple users as well. So back to that extensive library you can search by: artist, by albums, by singles, classic greats, world music from all around the world. The options are staggering, but now the disclaimer - new albums may take a little while to load up for full access, but singles for the new album should be available for your listening pleasure. MusixHub & Cliggo Music are two interesting music streaming sites with app download options for better user experience. Both are pretty good, some may prefer one over the other. I encourage you to check em both out and pick your favorite. You may have to create a free account in order to create and save your personal playlist and mixes. It's well worth checking out, now I can't say how they rank towards the premium services like iTunes and Spotify etc. What I can say is I'm certain you will find them quite enjoyable.

Gift Idea's for Valentines Day
Fellas wondering what to get your special someone? Well, I figure I would jot out a few ideas that maybe of help. Chocolate from Godiva is one way to let that special someone know how you feel, if your special someone loves chocolate, and never had a Godiva experience. It may be worth it to stimulate excitement through the taste buds. Godiva has an array of choices so there is definitely a winning choice. Among the other Valentine Day offerings there is Pandora which has become a hit among jewelry choices that you can build on year after year or various special occasion. With Pandora you can get a chain or bracelet with various pendant options rings, charms, you name it. The sky's the limit.
If your special someone like flowers there are many local flower stores ready to help you out with special arrangement that express your sentiments, or you can explore Edible Arrangements. Colorful fruits made into decorative arrangements may be a little more healthier, but couldn't say for sure.
As far restaurant choices if you are considering eating out well zagat is a good site to check. It will give you the top choices in your area, and recommended favorite dishes for the foodie connoisseur. Groupon have coupons options on everything from restaurants to spa services. It is worth a check as well if you want to go for a couples massage or treat your lady to a facial or other spa services.

Have you ever wondered how much it would cost to see all the movies in the theater? With a
movie ticket costing on average 15-20$ you would assume it would be expensive, right?
But I’m here to tell you it actually isn’t! It would only cost you 9.95$/month with MoviePass.
MoviePass is basically a debit card but for movies. It allows you to watch a movie a day at just
about any theater you can think of. The only downside is the deal does not include movies with
special features such as 3D, 4DX, or RPX. But I feel like for 9.95$/month it is still a steal. There
are no limitations besides that. You can go Sunday-Saturday anytime you want! There are NO
Blackout Dates, you can see the movie the day it comes out.
If you are someone who finds yourself at the movies at least once a month this will be of value
to you. The pass is only valid for one person only. Therefore, if you want to take a friend to the
movies with you-you would be saving money on your ticket.
When I go to the movies I’d normally try to refrain from buying extra stuff because I spent a lot
on the ticket already. But, with MoviePass, I don’t feel as bad buying them because I know I’ve
got my monies worth.
Are you still reading this?! Go and get your MoviePass now!
Below is a video highlighting pros and cons of MoviePass if you would like a further understanding of the MoviePass program
Here's a bonus for you Movie and TV goers, I highly recommend you check out a site call Low Tech Grandma. She has some interesting articles on alternative TV and movie options
worth checking out.

As exciting as the prospects of shopping for your new wheels, consider doing your homework or risk missing out on the opportunity to drive off with the car of your dreams for the lowest price possible. Why overpay, unless you got money to give away. If you do, I got a name and address for you, but seriously, if you do a little homework and utilize a couple of resources, you may be able to spot a great deal. You should remember that you have all the power. The car leaves the dealership lot because you're interested in it, but don't let your excitement make you lose your power in negotiation and getting what you want for the price that you want. Shop around, go to at least 4 to 5 dealers, ask them for their best out the door price on whatever model your interested in and with the trimmings you want. Tell them you want to know what's their best out the door price is because the dealer that gives you the best price your going to buy from them, plain and simple. You should be aware that their price might not include taxes and tag fee. The reason why I am telling you to ask for their best out the door price is that price plus tax and title and tag fees should bring you to your total cost. Every dealer has some crazy fees they like to tack on when they know they got you. So if the numbers start adding up pass what your total, it's either they correct it or you head to out the door for best price number two...If they want your business they will correct, because once you are out that door they’ve lost their chance.
As far as resources for helping you find that exceptional deal, here are a few:
1.) Edmunds is a consumer and auto industry trusted car research and car buying advisor - everything you need to find and thoroughly research your perfect new or used car.
2.) Buy new and used cars with TrueCar, the car price checker and car buying service that connects you with their network of over 13,000 Certified Dealers across the U.S. Receive transparent pricing on over one million in-stock vehicles. Each Certified Dealer is committed to providing upfront pricing information on in-stock inventory.
3.) Find used cars and new cars for sale at Autotrader. With millions of cars, finding your next new car or used car and the car reviews and information you're looking for is easy at Autotrader.
4.) Search for new cars and used cars at CarsDirect.com. Research cars and trucks by make and model, sell your used car, and get help with auto financing.
Alternative Used Car Options
For affordable used cars in good condition, I recommend checking out your favorite rental car service. Yes, I said it, check out your favorite rental car service. Rental services sell their cars to surplus inventory and make room for new inventory, trust me you can get great deals with better warranties than the dealership at times. I tell you this with certainty, I personally bought a car from Enterprise, and it was one of the best car buying experience I ever had. No pressure, the price was what the price was, they gave me a more than fair trade in amount for my car. I had the car for 6 to 7 years never had any problems other than a battery, and guess what they change it and gave me a new one free of charge. I tell you this story because I was ready to buy the same make and model from the dealership, and they wasted my time had me draw out money out of my account and then played games with the price and warranty. Image paying over ten grand for a vehicle with the dealer and only being offered a mouth warranty, that insane. I thought the dealership would give the best deals and to my surprise that was not the case. I thank the friendly motorist I gave up my park to one day who shared her experience buying from Enterprise. So I'm sharing with you now, you might say tons of people driven in those cars this is true, but those cars are serviced on a regular to assure good customer experience. They are well maintained and they guarantee decent warranty on their cars and there is no pressure. If you are in the market for a new car I wish you best of luck and with a little research, you are sure to get exactly what you want.
