Deals On Stuff They’ll Love – And Use!

It’s that time of year – time to buy gifts for our friends and family.  I love giving gifts, I love saving money, and I would prefer that the gifts that I give be practical. I’ll skip over some of the more traditional gifts – and focus on things that can be used, year-long. Here are a few of the things I’m purchasing (or have purchased) this year: Click on the individual items for up-to-date pricing!

The Zinus Memory Foam mattresss is awesome.  It is comfortable, holds its shape, and has more than 70% 5-star reviews.  We have one – and will be buying another, for our youngest. (This item is discounted, today!)

The Coleman Quad Chair is perfect for tailgaiting, camping, or just gatherings in the backyard. We have 5 of these and use them all throughout the year. They colapse and can store in the trunk of our car.

I am a fan of Anker’s products – and I really dig this Anker Compact Car Charger. It provides the ability to jump start an automobile, 2 usb charge ports for charging mobile devices, and it has a built-in flashlight. This is perfect for us – and for our teenage daughter, who is now driving.

Last year, a friend of mine started using the Game Golf system for tracking his play. I am impressed by the system, which tracks the clubs used during the round, and helps golfers track their stats. I’m hoping someone buys this for me this year!

I am working to organize my garage – and this Rad Cycle Bike Lift looks like an awesome solution for lifting our bikes up and out of the way.

We have one of the Semoo Beach Shade Tents – and we love it. I really enjoy the beach, and these shade tents make hanging out at the beach much more comfortable.

These are a few of the practical – and I think really cool – gifts that we plan to give this year. This post contains affiliate links. Have a blessed day!

Free And Discounted Prescriptions

Over the past few months, I’ve dealt with some now-resolved health issues.  I’m doing great now, but I have a deeper appreciation for free and discounted prescription drugs.  Here’s an updated list of pharmacies, drug stores, and supermarkets that offer free or discounted prescriptions.  Information is subject to change.  Check each store website for full details!  This list is just a summary of my own personal research.

Walmart sells several medications at $4, 30-day supply and $10, 90-day supply.  Click the link and then use the drop-down menus to see if your prescription is covered.

Fred’s offers several medications at $4, 30-day supply.  Click the link and the scroll to the bottom for a link to the list of drugs that they offer.

Publix offers a small selection of prescriptions drugs, for free.  That’s right.  Click the link for the list.  This is yet ANOTHER reason why we need Publix to open a store near us!

Giant Eagle offers a selection of drugs at $4, 30-day supply and $10, 90-day supply.  Click the link to view the list.

Harris Teeter offers a selection of discounted generics.  Click the link for a list.  We love to visit the Harris Teeter when we are on vacation.

Podcasts Are Awesome – These Are My Favorites

It makes sense that I would love podcasts, because I learn by listening.  Once in a while, I like to share my favorite podcasts with my readers – as a way to thank the various podcast creators and promote cool, free audio.  Click on the podcast titles for more information – and on podcast-creator names to connect on twitter.

Long-time No Credit Needed readers might remember my good friend Steve.  He is the creator of the awesome, geek-friendly, Geek Out Loud podcast network.  Check out his site for all of his current podcasts.

I have been listening to Marc Hochman for several years – and I love his current show, Hochman, Crowder and Krantz.  Hoch is funny, smart, and always has unique takes – on sports, food, and hot potatoes!

Hello Internet is an interesting show, covering science, technology, politics, and daily minutia, featuring conversations between & . Each episode is unique, with several segments, covering a wide-range of topics.

I love podcasts about history – and my current favorite is the Revolutions Podcast, created and produced by well know pod-caster, Mike Duncan. Check out his site for links to his other, awesome, history-related podcasts.

I’ve been listening to the Tony Kornheiser Show for more than 15 years, and I really like his new podcast. Tony talks about politics, sports, entertainment, his golf game, and the importance of valet parking. I am very interested to see if Tony can make the transition from traditional radio to podcasting work, long-term.  I have high hopes, because I love the idea of profitable, on-demand content.
