Coupon Chief and online shopping coupons

This is a paid review.....

Buying stuff online is so easy, the hardest part is paying for it...

Once you start making some money online, then the next word is online shopping coupons ...I do my share as well and usually go to the retailers site and make a purchase now and then spending most of my time in, for things that they can be delivered to this region...

Now the problem is curbing this habit... Infact, there are ways to save while shopping online.

There is Coupon Chief, which has coupons for free delivery, discounts, free gifts etc. These coupons are very useful especially if you are spending a lot. So, when you shop online, check and find what coupons they have to offer before you make a purchase. It may seem like a little here and there, but it definitely adds up in the end.

While there won’t always be a Coupon Chief available for your favorite store, it’s worth taking a moment to check for a discount or a coupon code for up to 50% off your order. In short, it is always wise to be an informed online shopper!

There are online shopping coupons for lots and lots of different stores like target, best buy, amazon,, kohl's,, home depot and best buy, target..

The list is endless….. Liz Claiborne is also another online store online that has online shopping coupons and also carries the latest fashions for women, men, and kids with thousands of styles to choose from

So check them out today

NEWS: Pepperjam Wins Best Company to Work For Award

Just a small clip on Pepperjam....

Pepperjam is the industry’s leading full-service internet marketing agency and is recognized by Inc. Magazine as one of the fastest growing companies in the United States. Pepperjam is made up of a team of industry veterans and experts, including internet marketing guru and international speaker Kristopher B. Jones.

This blog covers internet marketing, everything from pressing issues in the search-engine marketing, affiliate marketing, media planning and management space to pressing issues and trends in the broader e-commerce industry. Look here for exclusive pictures and real-time commentary from industry events such as Search-Engine Strategies (SES), Affiliate Summit, the Linkshare Symposium, Commission Junction University, Ad Tech, EcomExpo, PubCon and many more.

A few days ago we were notified by Happenings Magazine that they were named as one of the best places to work for in Northeastern, Pennsylvania (NEPA). Now NEPA has a population of over 1 million people and hundreds of cool businesses, it just so happens that Pepperjam is apparently the best place to work for!

Well Pepperjam would surely be kicked to be recognized as a kick-ass place to work.

In a company press release Michael C. Jones, Chief Operating Officer of Pepperjam said, “In traditional work environments, employees drag themselves into work everyday and have fun and relax on weekends. Not at Pepperjam. At Pepperjam we have consciously created a work environment where people can have fun and enjoy life all the time.”

Happenings Magazine cited a ping pong table, a stocked refrigerator of Who’s Your Daddy Energy Drink, and a Nintendo Wii in the Pepperjam lounge as only a few of the reasons why Peppejam employees love coming into work everyday.

The magazine noted that Pepperjam gives all employees free membership to the YMCA, free pizza every Friday, and has a relaxed dress code that includes jeans, flip flops, and baseball caps. Also noted was that on any day of the week, Roxy, a two-year old English Bulldog, can be found running around the office playing with or begging for a treat from any of Pepperjam’s 80-plus employees.

Happenings Magazine, published since 1969, chronicals local and regional history, tourism, and events in Northeastern, Pennsylvania. The publication is free and has been one of the most read magazines in Pennsylvania for over 38 years.

Now, why do you need to go home, if they also allow bunk beds....... talk about professionalising working from home !!

Publishing Reprint Articles Warning

This is a blog post from Lynn Terry's Blog....a blog worth visiting.... not because it is something special ... but because of the discpipline she maintains, not to mention the humor.... Anybody striving to become an online marketer, should drop by and have a peep

So, with due regards to Lynn.....

Take a good hard look at the reprint and free articles you are uploading to your websites. It seems that’s where many scraper sites are gaining a lot of their inbounds from.

Check all the links in the articles, including the author’s byline. Either I haven’t been paying close enough attention or the scraper sites are really infiltrating the article marketing arena.

The articles typically are well written and informative. Everything from home housewares and furnishings to pets and computer tips. Domain names are decent and don’t raise any flags (not spam-domain-keyword-ten-times-here .com). Also the main page of the website could look fine, but check the resources page and other site links.


Because the sites we link *to* can affect our own domain’s Google value, avoiding linking to spam and rogue domains is a must. And I’m not convinced that the nofollow tag offers full protection.

Before publishing a reprint article:

*Check every single link the article and byline point to
*Do not publish an article with links from URL redirection services (such as tinyurl)

If you are going to use the auto rss to blog type softwares and scripts to grab and publish reprint articles automatically, think twice about doing so on a good, established website. It may end up toasting your domain.

The article link can be found at.....

Check out Bid4prizes Today

This is a sponsored post..

I had been hearing about the Bid4prizes site lately, so I decided it was time to drop by and find out first hand what it was about. Surprisingly….it turned out be a lot more fun searching at all the cool prizes that covered free gifts, sweepstake and cash prizes apart from others and it definitely was more than quite interesting

The concept is similar to an auction site or like eBay, but it is actually better because it is the lowest unique bidder that will win the auction. At Ebay if you bid on something, it is the highest bid that wins and then the winner pays the shipping and whatever other associated costs that the person demands, and then you're left to hope that what you get is in the condition the seller said it was.

It is just the opposite with Bid4prizes. Here you bid as low and as uniquely as you can in order to win the prize you want. The concept is user-friendy and it is a text based reverse-auction game. The prizes include free gifts, sweepstake and cash prizes . Prizes range from, Apple I-Phone’s, HDTV’s, Designer Bags, SCION XB’s to Cash Prizes and there is a new winner everyday.

To explain the process in detail.. The trick and the most difficult part to make your bid the "Unique" one basically means that your bid amount has to be the lowest, ie., that no one else has bid for it yet. A bid becomes duplicate, when someone other than you bids the exact amount.. Now as there are two bids for the same amount they cancel each other and the new bid becomes the next lowest unique bid and it goes on until the auction ends. So if you bid 20 cents for the iPhone and your bid happens to be unique... then you take home an iPhone.

Although I still am coming to terms with the fundamentals, but am yet to give up hope on the plasma TV, cell phones and free gifts, sweepstake and cash prizes . One may not win, but still it leaves you with a big hope. They even have a car…Basically, if you are an eBay freak, then you will like this as well.. absolutely easy to sign up and become a member as well!

So, what are you waiting for, just go to and bid for the item you want..

Online Learning and Capella's Online University

Online college education during the recent years has increased, which has led to increased competition among institutions to attract students.

One of the most important aspects is to find an online learning program that meets both professional and personal needs. Mainly because, it can be difficult to juggle classes and a career, as well as the costs and time needed.

Did you ever want to get an additional degree and didn't have the time to goto a regular University – just because you couldn't spare the time to go through the entire course. Many a time you may also not want to leave your current day-job just to get that extra university degree.

Now, online learning provides that self-paced learning environment that allows you to complete a graduate degree while working. Better still, this can be done from the convenience of a computer, no matter where you are or what time of day. This flexibility makes all the difference.

You can complete your studies from virtually anywhere in the world. You study from your own home or office, wherever it is convenient with no on-campus courses (in most cases) to attend. If you don't have the time to continue your education in the normal way, Capella University may be your best bet for online learning programs.

Capella University was established in 1993, and is a fully accredited online university that offers graduate degree programs in business, information technology, education, human services, and psychology, and bachelor’s degree programs in business and information technology. You can get your business degree online through Capella in your spare time and on your own schedule.

Capella University is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Capella Education Company, headquartered in Minneapolis, and offers 76 graduate and undergraduate specializations and 16 certificate specializations

Most students enjoy online education for several reasons. They say that their online education outshines their traditional classroom experiences. That's because in online education is that you are a part of a team and this always helps you to learn from the students.

That's because, apart from the personal attention, it also provides a flexibility and dynamic interaction to online learning. In other words, distance education on the Internet tends to attract people who are already professionals. They bring their experience to the classroom, adding both depth and breadth to discussions.

Another very good aspect of online learning is that it is affordable. It removes financial barriers that keep some people out of college. With low tuition and flexible financial aid (which most colleges provide), you won't be burdened with a mountain of debt when you graduate. You have to pay only for the credit hours you need to complete your degree. The more previous college credit and work experience you have, the lower your cost will be. Besides you also have a variety of payment options.

There is also some conflict as to whether an online learning is as good as a traditional college education. The answer is not very difficult - there are institutions that offer good and bad online college education. This holds true for traditional college degree programs as well. So when comparing, it is obvious that in most cases, a good traditional college degree is compared with a bad online college education. Hence this conflict.

If the online university itself does not recommend any placements then its degree should be one that fetches you a good job. Obviously, the university’s reputation is a significant factor in fetching a respectable job. There are some sites that rank various online universities on the basis of their academic status.

Anyway, check out the Online Learning options available at Capella University and decide for yourself.

Capella's Online University currently serves 16,000 students from all 50 US states and 63 countries and provides them with the opportunity to enter into graduate degree programs in business, information technology, education, human services, psychology, and bachelors degree programs in business and information technology. Capella also offer an extensive range of professional IT certifications such as CCNA, CCNP, PMP, MCSE and CISSP.

A Blonde enters a store that sells curtains. She tells the salesman, "I would like to buy a pair of pink curtains."

The salesman assures her that they have a large selection of pink curtains. He shows her several patterns, but the blond seems to be having a hard time choosing. Finally she selects a lovely pink floral print. The salesman then asks what size curtains she needs.

The blond promptly replies, "fifteen inches."

"Fifteen inches???" asked the salesman. "That sounds very small, what room are they for?"

The blond tells him that they aren't for a room, they are for her computer monitor. The surprised salesman replies, "but Miss, computers do not need curtains!"

The blond says, "Hellllooooooooo ... I've got WINDOOOOOOOWWWSS!"
