Dion’s Deal: $1.50 Cheesecake Preview @ Cheesecake Factory TODAY ONLY!
July 29, 2010

Greetings everybody!  Wow, what a busy morning.  That missing Lenexa man, Larry Schnackenberg was found yesterday afternoon (alive, after being missing for 20 days in Shawnee Mission Park) *and* KC’s oldest cold case, the murder of civil rights activist Leon Jordan has been re-opened.  I’ve been live in the field on both all morning and need to play catch-up on my other stories, so this will have to be quick.

$1.50 for the new Reese’s peanut butter chocolate cake slice-thing-a-ma-doodle….mmm…

Yesterday, I blogged about National Cheesecake Day where you can get a slice @  Cheesecake Factory tomorrow for half price. (Look at next post for info.)

Dion’s Daily Deal reader Angie, passed this info to me:

If you join The Cheesecake Factory’s Facebook page you can get any slice tomorrow (7/29/10) for a $1.50 (you have to dine-in). Here’s the link:

Dion’s Deal: Old Navy Camis Just $2 With Coupon!
July 28, 2010

Thanks to Joanie, @ for this one.  Tomorrow (July 29th) through Sunday, you can get yourself up to FIVE camisoles for just $2 each!

$2 can buy you a medium-sized diet cherry limeaid at Sonic. I know because that’s what stopped to get on my way home yesterday. Yes, a $2 tank, or a medium drink (with about 20-cents leftover) 🙂

Here’s the link to the coupon: 

I strongly suggest calling the store ahead on this one.  You never know if they’ll have your size in stock, or if the store has run out.  Enjoy!

Dion’s Deal: 1/2 Price Cheesecake @ Cheesecake Factory on Friday!
July 28, 2010

Oooh, my producer, Troy passed this on to me.  Apparently, Friday, July 20th is National Cheesecake Day, and the Cheesecake Factory is not only unveiling a new Reese’s PB Cups flavor…but also offering any slice for 50% off!


I wonder how many calories an entire case of cheesecakes is...actually, no, I don't want to know!

Here’s the actual press release:

Guests can enjoy “Any Slice, Half Price” on Friday, July 30, and try the new Reese’s® Peanut Butter Chocolate Cake Cheesecake.  This flavor features chunks of Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups mixed into their famous Original Cheesecake with layers of delicious fudge cake and caramel.  It will be available starting on National Cheesecake Day, plus $0.25 from the sale of every slice will benefit Feeding America. 

 Even better– it’s for a good cause! As always, call ahead to make sure your location is participating.  Enjoy 🙂

Dion’s Deal: Free Hot Tamales Candy!
July 27, 2010

Spicy foods + Dion Lim = Baaaad Idea.  Not because I get sick, but because I can’t handle the heat!  It’s no a pleasant feeling to be sweating and mouth in pain.  My dad, growing up always put hot sauce on everything.  (actually, Siracha, (sp?)  a popular Asian variety.) He would probably like Hot Tamales candies…as do many people.

Check this offer out: Just fill out this form and wait for free candies to arrive in the mail. Supplies while they Enjoy, Dion

Everything! Noodles, eggs, dad LOVES this stuff!

Dion’s Deal: $5 For TWO Cold Stone Coupon
July 27, 2010

UPDATE:  Thanks to reader, Diane, this coupon may only indeed by good for Dallas locations only.  Good think she called ahead first to make sure the coupon works.  Thanks and good call Diane!

Cold Stone ice cream doesn’t even come in sizes “small”, “medium” and “large”. In fact, they call it “like it”, “love it”, “gotta have it”. (At least I believe that’s what I saw last time I was there a loooong time ago.)

Anyway, if you’re a fan of their ice cream mix-in creations (the store gets it’s name because of their toppings that get mixed into the ice cream on a COLD STONE.) you can get 2 like-it sized treats with one mix-in each for just $5.

Link here: . On a toasty Tuesday like today, ice cream would hit the spot. (Or really, any day this summer. Phew.)

BTW: Had to post this pic from yesterday:

I was out doing team coverage of the senior apartment complex fire in St. Joe, and we were having trouble getting a signal. So we could get video on-air…our photographer set up our Next Generation technology on the hood of the news car. (We live streamed pictures through the laptops.) Boy, it’s a lot of gear to assemble!
