  • Morning Coffee: Today is the LAUSD Choices application deadline

    Just a reminder for locals who plan to send their children to an LAUSD school next year that today at 5 p.m. is the Choices application deadline. Although the Choices web site says the application must be “received” by the deadline, the application brochure itself (pdf) says “postmarked or received.” Read my previous posts about the Choices program.

    I didn’t have a chance yesterday to post that Walgreens made their Friends & Family coupon available yesterday to their Facebook fans, but that’s definitely something to keep in mind for the future. Companies are experimenting with social media and rewarding fans these days. Everyone can now print the Friends & Family coupon over at the Walgreens site. It’s good today only. If you have the $1.50 off Kashi Go Lean Crunch coupons from VocalPoint, the cereal is on sale for $2.50 per box, so only 63 cents after the Friends & Family discount and coupon.
