Dion’s Deal: 30% Off Tops @ Banana Republic + BONUS Coupon!
February 26, 2010

Hi Everybody–

Wearing a Banana Republic petites dress on-air today.  Actually, I'm logging some video here...ignore that funny look on my face.  It's impossible to take a good screen shot!

I’m really crunching, trying to get a few stories done before the weekend, but real quick…an email just popped up from Banana Republic on the Country Club Plaza.

Until Sunday, all full-priced tops are 30% off!  Pretty good if you want to get a jump start on the new spring clothes. As always call the store ahead of time for details. Not sure if this applies to all BR stores.  Cheers!

PS:  Thanks to www.bradsdeals.com for this coupon: http://virginamerica.promo.eprize.com/landthelook/brcoupon?sid=C5B1L3BR2S34225-2010-02-26-13-44-c-72614 if you need some pants to go with the 30% off top…this is a coupon for 20% off ANY 1 item. 

(Again, I can’t stress enough.  Call the store ahead for all coupon details!)

Just for kicks...here's my two boys, watching me get ready for work today.  For some reason they LOVE sitting on the back of the sofa.  Maybe because this way they're high up.

This time, print this coupon: http://www.walgreens.com/topic/photo/thursday.jsp and THURSDAY only, get a free 8×10 photo print.  No purchase necessary! 

Enjoy!  Dion 

PS:  I’ve started up a new hobby.  Beading!  I wore this on Monday and really like it.  Maybe because it looks like little green candies.  (Or as my mom says, little beans.) 

This is what happens when I try to take my own picture.

Dion’s Deal: FREE Zone Perfect Indulgence Nutrition Square! (+My Excedrin Coupon)
February 24, 2010

Companies are using Facebook so much to promote their products— I see a freebie offer at least once a week now. Zone Perfect is. Check it out: http://www.facebook.com/ZonePerfect?v=app_321053812297 

Don't these little "Indulgence Squares" look like Russel Stover candies?  Not that I'm complaining...

Zone Perfect is giving away 30-thousand Zone Perfect Indulgence Squares just by becoming a “fan” of the company on your Facebook page.   

To sweeten the deal, the company is also donating $1 to the Save The Music foundation for each new fan.  You can get either the new Chocolate Peanut Butter Mouse Indulgence Square or the Caramel Toffee.  (Goodness these things sound like candy!) 

Oh, also, a co-worker, Kay and I got our Excedrin coupons in the mail.  Talk about FAST delivery. 

How easy is that?  A coupon for *free* Excedrin, up to $5.99. Usually it takes a few weeks to these coupons to arrive, but in our case, it took just over one week!

PS:  To the one viewer who had difficulty with her coupon @ Wal-Mart…just keep in mind, Wal-Mart likes to say printable coupons are not real, when they *are*.  (This comes straight from the manufacturer’s website.) You gotta know the store’s coupon policy.  (Example: some Price Choppers don’t take printables over value X.)

Dion’s Deal: How To Get A FREE Scotch Fur Fighter (Sticky, Rolly Thing)
February 23, 2010

Darn it.  Didn’t I just buy this for full price last week?  Yes, I did.  My little boys (Frankie and Georgie) don’t really shed, but I have this black jacket that’s a MAGNET for little hairs and dusty things. So I bought a Fur Fighter kit, thinking it would be stronger than using a regular rolly-sticky-anti-fur-roll thing.

What a cute doggie...I have never met a white dog as clean.  The ones in the Westminster Dog Show were blinding white...

Get this.  Apparently the Scotch Fur Fighter kits are on sale at Target for $3.99

Use this coupon for $4 off any kit!  Do the math… http://www.3m.com/us/home_leisure/petcare/coupons/PetNewsletterCoupon.pdf

and BAM!  They’re free!  Speaking of BAM… this morning, I went live from the United Studios of Self Defense in Leawood to do some demonstrations on how women can fight back against an attacker. (After all, there was just a 5th rape in the Waldo area.)

Yoikes.  Getting fake-choked is scary.

While one free class (go here: http://ussd.com/a/ and enter your zip code for the location near you or call 913-451-3606) this week won’t be enough to fend off an attacker, several months of training can potentially do the trick.

Here I am, learning to attack this 200lb + guy. You should have heard the sound effects. I go "BAM"! at the end, like Emeril on the Food Network.

I’m really tired now…I’m gonna try and hustle and get my stories done for today and go home and take a nap.  Cheers and Best, Dion San

PS: My mother wrote me 2 emails, informing me of a typo in this post…all fixed mom! (T-I-R-E-D!)
