Dion’s Deal: FREE Crabtree & Evelyn Hand Therapy! ($7 Value)
June 30, 2010

Good Wednesday Everybody! 

Love their bath salts…much needed after my return to the gym yesterday…for the first time in 3 weeks!

Real quickly, while Ketz does the Good Morning America block…I found this deal at the Sweeties Swag blog. (  Check this out:

Just print this out, and bring it to any Crabtree & Evelyn store (there’s one in the Oak Park Mall) and score a free hand therapy, worth $7! It doesn’t seem like you need to purchase anything to redeem the coupon, but as always, I recommend calling ahead and asking first.  Cheers– I’m off to grab a snack and finish up the 8am show! See you on TV. — Dion


Dion’s Deal: FREE Cookie @ Atlanta Bread Company
June 28, 2010

Good Monday Morning Everybody!  Hope you all had a wonderful weekend.  Haven’t posted since last week because I was in Boston for the wedding of two people I set up on a blind date about…oh I’ve lost count, 6 or 7 years ago!  I’ll have to post photos soon, because get this…the groom’s family lives IN KANSAS CITY! 

For those who are wondering…my computer is having trouble saving image files, so I’ve been taking pictures of the actual sites with my Blackberry. This is what you’ll see at the Facebook page.

I digress. 

Anyway, here’s an offer a friend told me about coming from the Atlanta Bread Company.  They’re offering up a free cookie if you become a “FAN” on their Facebook page here:

As always, while supplies last.  One viewer once asked me “Why so many Facebook freebies?  Not everyone has a Facebook account!”  I guess with 400-million users around the world, companies are realizing what a good marketing tool the site can be. Enjoy! 

Stay tuned for 4th of July picnic planning tips from KMBC’s favorite and original Coupon Mom, Chrissy! (July 1st. Details to come.)

Dion’s Deal: FREE DiGiorno Pizza (+Dion’s Mayo Update)
June 23, 2010

Greetings Dear D3 Readers!

I’m about to head out the door soon, but a friend told me to check out the DiGiorno FACEBOOK page for a deal on a free pizza!  Check it out here:

This morning we ran a story about a man on a pizza diet. I got all excited…then the guy in the story said he does it by eating only once slice, then exercising an hour afterwards. Uhhh what kind of diet is that? You could eat ANYTHING in moderation and then exercise an hour and lose right, no?

Basically add your photo to a bunch of funny-ish DiGiorno fan photos on Facebook, and get a coupon for a FREE pizza!  If you’re not much of an exhibitionist, you can also print out a $1 coupon at the site. 

PS:  Here’s the free Kraft Mayo I got in the mail.  (This was a blog post earlier last week.)  Companies always say it takes 6-8 weeks or something ridiculous, but these two mayo packets arrived in less than 2.  By the way…no coupon in the box…but nice nonetheless for those times the driver-thru person forgets to pop in condiments in my bag.

Dion’s Deal: 50 FREE Mommy Cards From KODAK
June 22, 2010

I know.  I though the same thing.  What’s a MOMMY card? Apparently, they’re little contact info cards with photos moms can use just like business cards.  Cute! 

Anyway, KODAK usually sells 50 at their website for $20, but for a limited time, they’re FREE!  Just pay $3.99 shipping and handling. Take a look:

I’m not a mommy yet, but do have two little canine boys to take care of.  I just might make some featuring Frankie and Georgie. (How ya like that segway/excuse to post some pictures!)

This guy LOVES lounging in the sun. No matter if it’s winter or summer, he loves catching some rays. (The fur means he doesn’t need sunscreen.)
…and I can’t *not* post this one. Caught Frankie crawling under a stool, trying to pick up some food I dropped. Look at his hind legs!!

Dion’s Deal: Free Pie @ Waffle House Coupon
June 22, 2010

My dessert of choice is cake. Carrot cake.  Vanilla cake.  Black forest cake. Cup cake. Angel food cake.  Really, if it’s soft, moist and sweet and can be topped with fruits and frosting, it’s mine.  However, sometime the craving for pie hits.  Check this out:

Dion’s Cooking Tip: please, please take the time to whip your own whip cream. Cool Whip is fine and all, but trust me. It wasn’t as intimidating as I thought to whip your own. Cream. Bowl. Wisk. Arm movements. 2 minutes later, fluffy deliciousness and a more toned upper arm.

Waffle House occasionally comes out with these free item coupons, and ladies and gentlemen, this time it’s a slice of pie! This coupon expires July 10th, so you’ve got plenty of time to use it.  I’d call ahead just to cover your bases to make sure the coupon is valid for your location.

By the way…here I am with a group of friends one night for chicken and dumplings night. My girlfriend Robbyn had her little southern mama in town on weekend, so she had us all over for dumplings, lima beans and CHESS PIE.  Oh my goodness…I’ve never had chess pie, have no idea why it’s called chess pie but it reminded me of pecan, and I must have eaten three slices that night.
