  • Midmorning Coffee: Great buffet server deal

    Amazon’s Holiday Lightning Deals today include a Wilson football at 8 a.m. PST (for less than $19.99), a Tiny Love mobile at 9 a.m. (for less than $35.21; these were highly rated when my boys were infants), and a Cuisinart Buffet Server at 4 p.m. (for less than $39.96, has a list price of $100). I’m seriously contemplating getting one or more of the buffet servers – you can buy 4 for the price of 3, it gets good reviews, and I love that it uses readily available tea lights for heat instead of a special type of heat source. Note that you may be limited to only one server during the Lightning Deal, though. Disclosure: I’m an Amazon affiliate, so any purchase you make after entering Amazon through a link on Chief Family Officer supports this site at no additional cost to you. Thank you!

    The Holiday Video Game Deal of the Day is on “active sports,” which means games like NBA2K11, Pro Evolution Soccer 2011, Tony Hawk Shred, and Sonic, Cabela and Rapala games.

    Amazon is offering a couple of deals on Flip video cameras. First, buy a new 4GB UltraHD Flip Video Camera and get 3 free accessories – the 4GB model in white is just $99.99 right now.

    The second deal is buy a all-new 8GB Flip UltraHD Video Camera and get a $25 gift card – the white one is $161, or $136 after the gift card.

    The free holiday mp3 today is Joseph’s Lullaby by MercyMe.

    One more Walgreens update, since the Hallmark cards RR deal continues this week: Wild for Wags reports that the $0.49 cards are no longer working for the deal, in addition to the tissue paper and wrapping paper.
