  • Morning Coffee: Look for a Daily Grill deal

    The Daily Grill has locations throughout Southern California, and in other areas of the country as well. I’m never around to be able to post the info in a timely fashion, so I’ll just tell you to keep an eye on the Daily Grill Twitter feed today and every Tuesday. They generally have a Twitter phrase of the day that gets you a deal in the restaurant (dine-in only, I think). In the past, they’ve given out free dessert and free burgers, so if you like the Daily Grill, Tuesday is the day to go.

    I keep wondering when Amazon’s Holiday Toy Lightning Dealsare going to end, but today is not that day. Today’s deals just started with Strawberry Shortcake, and will continue with Transformers at 8 a.m. PST, a tea set at 9 a.m., and Star Trek at 2 p.m. The last deal of the day will be at 4 p.m. I finally gave in yesterday and picked up the Twilight Board Game and New Moon Board Gamefor $3.99 each (unfortunately, the New Moon game is back up to $14.99 now). The games would make for a fun girls night in!

    Check your email for an offer from Snapfish – I got one for a free 11×14 calendar collage poster when you buy a gift certificate from Snapfish. Because there’s no code needed, I think only people who got the email and click through that link may receive the poster. I am thinking of ordering myself a gift certificate, since I can easily spend $10 at Snapfish during the next year. (The offer expires 12/24.)
