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!


Dion’s Deal: Free ACHOOZ (huh?) Sample!
July 27, 2010

Who knew…Achooz are a brand of saline nose wipes! If those allergies are getting to your this summer, you can score 2 free Achooz brand wipes (one in regular, the other in menthol)

My fiance has allergies and sinus issues come spring and summer, and swears by a neti pot. Maybe I should get him some of these…which are a bit more convenient for those times we’re out and about…

Click on this link: and fill out the form with your name and address and all that good stuff.  Wait a few weeks, and you’ll have two nose wipeys to toss in your bag or put in your travel case. While supplies last.  Enjoy!

Was going to post this yesterday, but was out live all morning. This is inside the Sprint Center, an hour before the Paul McCartney concert! THE MOST INCREDIBLE SHOW....EVER.

Paul was an hour late.  He thought he was in Kansas.  All was forgiven though after he played his first song.  For a man approaching 70, his energy was through the roof.  The set list spanned from his early Beatles stuff to Wings and changed song without missing a beat. He sounds just like his albums, and it was so neat to see him change guitars and then play piano, then pick up a ukulele to pay tribute to George. (He played the uke.)  I’ll post more pics later this week!

Dion’s Deal: (Actually Jennifer & Donnell’s) $1 Popcorn & Drinks @ AMC Theaters!
July 23, 2010

It’s ba-aack!  This Sunday, July 25th only, you can score any sized popcorn or drink for $1 each! Check it out here:

Click on the “$1 Any Size Offer” tab under the picture when you get to the web page.

Dion’s Daily Deal readers Jennifer and Donnell both passed this deal on to me.  Jennifer says a small is $5.50 by itself, so you can imagine what a large could go for.

Gotta finish up a few stories before the weekend.  Have a great weekend! Dion

I’m intrigued…

PS:  I’m working on a story about a device called SEZMI, which allows people to watch HD cable TV for just $5 a month!  Curious how this works? Me too…details next week. 

Dion’s Deal: Free Nexxus Shampoo/Conditioner Sample + Burt’s Bees Toothpaste!
July 21, 2010

It’s Wal-Mart sample freebie time!  This time around you can sign up for a free Nexxus shampoo/conditioner sample here: 

Also, check out this freebie for Burt’s Bees toothpaste:

Again, these little sample sizes go great in carry-ons for short plane trips.

While supplies last (I think they’ll go fast!)  Thanks to the readers who passed these on!

PS: This post is dedicated to my friend, and former co-worker, Nick Dutcher who passed away…murdered yesterday. All of us who know him here at Channel 9, and at the TV station in town agree.  He is the most genuine, good-natured person you’ll ever meet.  He was one of the first people I became friends with here in KC, and believed in me from day 1.  I think we all agree…we’re going to work our hardest to find the person/people responsible.  Nick, RIP.

Sorry so blurry. This is a group shot of us at Justin Robinson's Mom's house for her annual fried chicken night. Nick is the one second from the left.
