  • Midmorning Coffee: Swag Code Extravaganza Today!

    Search & WinToday is the Swagbucks Swag code extravaganza, so there will be codes throughout the day. In fact, you can already get the first one on Twitter (expires at 8 a.m. PDT). If I know of an active code, I’ll let you know via the CFO Twitter stream and Facebook page, but I won’t be online all day long and might miss a few. If you want to keep track of codes yourself, keep an eye on the “swidget” in the left sidebar here at CFO – it will tell you when a code is available and where to find it.

    Amazon’s deal of the day is once again Lady Gaga’s new album, Born This Way for just $0.99. When this deal was available a couple of days ago, Amazon’s system was hit so hard that it took nearly all day for the entire album to be loaded into my cloud drive. The good news, of course, is that because it was my first album purchase since Amazon announced their new cloud service, I got 20 GB of free cloud drive storage.

    The Instant Video rental deal of the day is The Tourist for $0.99 – this is the Johnny Depp & Angelina Jolie movie from last year. It gets 3 1/2 out of 5 stars in 189 reviews. With Instant Video rentals, you generally have 30 days from the date of purchase to watch the video, and 48 hours to complete your viewing once you start.

    Amazon’s free Android app of the day is Hundred Pushups, a six-week program to help you do 100 consecutive pushups. It gets 4 out of 5 stars in 26 reviews.

    Amazon’s free MP3 of the day is Invaders Must Die by The Prodigy.

    Amazon is also offering a free MP3 download of Sister Hazel‘s album 11411 – it’s an Amazon exclusive that gets 5 out of 5 stars in 17 reviews. (Via Tia’s Saving Cents.)

    Bargain Briana warns of Facebook scams. I know the particular version she mentions – someone you know stranded as a tourist abroad – has been making the email rounds because a former colleague actually received a scam email. So be suspicious of anyone who contacts you and says they are the victims of thieves abroad and need money for a hotel or to get home.
