  • Midmorning Coffee: Happy Mega Swag Bucks Friday!

    Update 10:30 a.m.: This is a hot deal I just picked up that I wanted to pass along – I will probably save it for a birthday gift, since the class gift exchange has a $10 limit and I don’t want anyone to think we disregarded it! Amazon currently has the Crayola Glow Station on sale for $9.99 (list price $39.99) with free shipping if you have Prime (or spend $25).

    Search & WinSwagbucks is by far my favorite way to earn free money, so I love Fridays, when there’s an increased chance of winning big Swag Bucks. Plus, get one daily Swag Buck by taking the Daily Poll, and another daily Swag Buck for using their toolbar. Disclosure: If you join Swagbucks using my referral link, I’ll get bonus Swag Bucks, so thank you if you do!

    Amazon continues with the Holiday Lightning Deals, including a set of carbon monoxide and smoke alarm detectors at 11:10 a.m. PST (for less than $24.95), a Matchbox fire truck at 1 p.m. (for less than $17.49), a Fisher Price dollhouse at 2 p.m. (for less than $37.99), and Lego Duplos at 5 p.m. (for less than $24). 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 video game special today is on kid’s games, including the Lego games – Harry Potter, Star Wars, Indiana Jones and Batman – as well as Dora, Megamind, and The Penguins of Madagascar.

    Amazon’s Gold Box deals today look like they’re all going to be related to tools.

    Amazon’s Video Game deal of the day is WWE Smackdown vs. Raw 2011 for $39.99.

    Amazon also has the The Princess Bride Two-Disc Blu-ray/DVD Combo on sale for just $8.99 (although this is one of those prices that could change by the time you read this – and again, I feel like I’m revealing I’m a child of the 80’s!).

    The free holiday mp3 today is Ain’t Nothin’ Like Christmas by Shelby Lynne.
