  • Morning Coffee: Free Family Fun Mag from Plum District

    Daily deal site Plum District is offering $10 off any deal today with code 10today. One of their current “everywhere” deals is a one-year subscription to Family Fun for just $6 – apply the code and you can get this deal for free, although you do have to put credit card info on file. (Use a temporary card number if your credit card lets you create one.) Update: The code is no longer valid on this deal – sorry! Other current Plum District deals include a $30 voucher for reusable sandwich bags for $15 (just $5 after discount!). That one’s sold out – but they have some others! Thank you if you join(ed) Plum District using my referral link!

    Amazon is offering the Silver & Pearl Chain Necklace Set pictured at right for just $15.99 ($22 value). It’s another jewelry item that would make a nice gift, especially with the holidays coming up.

    Get a printable coupon for $1/2 bags of Luden’s Throat Drops via Free Coupon Alerts. These are often free-after-reward or rebate during the cold & flu season, but coupons are rare so grab this one while it’s available. The one I printed today expires 11/24.

    Get a printable coupon for $1/1 Maxwell House International Coffee, also via Free Coupon Alerts.

    Amazon’s free Android app of the day is Virtual Horse Racing 3D Pro ($1.99 value), a game for ages 13+ that gets 4 out of 5 stars in 17 reviews.

    Get a free sample of Bliss Aromatherapy Shower Gel & Body Butter. (Via Passion for Savings.)

    Northern Cheapskate has some tips on minimizing mail clutter. I like the suggestion of putting forms into a file that’s carried around so you can fill the forms out whenever you find yourself waiting.

    Wear a family farm-inspired costume and pay just $2 for burritos, salads, and bowls at my favorite fast food restaurant Chipotle on Halloween from 6 p.m. to closing.

    1. I checked out the Plum District deal — they won’t let you use the promo code for the magazine subscription.

        Bummer! They must have updated their system. Thanks for letting us know, I’ll update the post.
