  • Morning Coffee: Swag Code Extravaganza Today

    Search & WinBack on Monday, I mentioned Swag Bucks’ back to school specials this week, and today is the Swag Code Extravaganza, meaning there will be five Swag Codes posted throughout the day. To stay on top of them, you’ll need to keep an eye on their blog, Twitter feed, Facebook page, toolbar, and swidget, which you can find in the left sidebar here at CFO.

    GrouponToday’s Groupon deal that caught my eye is a $40 certificate to Fairytale Brownies for $20 (it’s a side deal in San Diego that’s available to everyone). I found one review that described them as a little too sweet, but I still they would make a great gift for a certain someone at the holidays. I am just trying to decide if I should hold off for an even better deal. Also today, you can find the Insomnia Cookie deal in Cinncinati (24 cookies and shipping for $22) and the Picaboo photo book deal in Lincoln ($100 worth of photo book for $25). Links via
